Well it’s been a while since I’ve posted an update. April was a busy month and then me and my forgetful brain forgot to get back on here.
Anyway, I’m doing well, and I’m down a total of 12.5 kg (27.5 lb) and I’m feeling great. I’m exercising regularly and eating well. Most days I have a nutritional meal replacement shake for breakfast and lunch and then a well-balanced meal for dinner and if I’m feeling hungry I’ll grab a healthy snack. One thing I have loved about my new healthy lifestyle is that I no longer have the cravings or feel the need to have sweets, potato chips or any of that tasty stuff that is bad for us.
I also love that I am becoming a better mother. I love to spend time with my kids, I listen and converse with them, I have more energy for them. It’s kind of funny looking back to when I was a total lazy slob & thought that I was a good role model to my children (apart from the unhealthy part) but looking back, I’ve been a lazy mum. I’ve wasted so much time sitting in front of the tv. I used to spend hours on end watching tv (instead of food cravings it was Netflix cravings). Having family fun times was a rarity. Having a conversation wasn’t something I did, of course I’d ask how their day at school was, but I never actually listened and took it in. I was afraid of becoming a mother that her children couldn’t rely upon, and now I know, that I won’t be her.
I have added a couple of extra pages to my site, Body & Nourish, which will have links to my favourite workouts & recipes etc. to fuel and nourish the body.
I’ve learnt so much on my healthy living journey so far, not only about weight loss/healthy eating, but having a healthy mind, relationships, just cutting out all of the poisonous crap in your life and being happier, and I can’t wait to pass this information onto my children (and anyone else that will listen). I don’t want anyone, let alone my children, to wait until their mid-30’s to get their life/health on track. I ignored it for far too long but now I’m ready to go out there and rule the world!! Lol.
Hope you’re having an amazing day!!
