Why I’m Doing the 30 Days to Healthy Living Challenge
PSA – I don’t think I’ve worn a crop top in public in over 15 years… but there’s a reason I’m wearing one right now.
I’m about to share something incredibly personal and I’ll admit I’m a little nervous writing this, but I realise this is something I need to do.
Since having my first child, this body has never quite been the same – and neither has my mind. I get it, I created a beautiful human being and I appreciate the beauty in that, and don’t get me wrong – I LOVE being a Mum – but along the way, I’ve forgotten about ME.
I see the changes in my body and it has stifled my confidence. Four years later I thought I’d shake the muffin top but it’s still there.
I really don’t like the sag above my c-section scar and I feel extremely uncomfortable in a bikini… to the point where I don’t really like getting in the water with my daughter… and that scares me.
What sort of example am I being to this gorgeous wee girl of mine? I want to be the best mother I can possibly be, and I know in order to do that I need to make some changes.
Which brings me to my next point.
My mind and my health isn’t the same. I’ve had lots of health issues in the past three years. I’ve had two surgeries… one which just took place last month and I’m still recovering.
I experience brain fog on the daily and I’m constantly tired.
My skin is slowly starting to improve but I want to feel comfortable without ANY makeup on.
I want to feel great inside in out and I’ve finally realised that I am the only person that can change that. Yes I’ve worked on parts of myself but I’ve never gone “the full hog” as I haven’t wanted to commit or put the time in.
Lockdown, however, has completely changed that belief system for me. It’s amazing how much perspective we can get when something shifts in our lives.
So, with that being said, I’ve decided to do something I’ve never done before – I’m resetting my gut health.
I’m going to do the Arbonne 30 Days to Healthy Living Challenge.
I’ve heard great things about this programme and the products but I’ll admit that I’m a skeptic. No-one close to me has done this so I don’t really know if the investment is worth it.
Then I said to myself: “What if it IS worth it?!”
And I decided to go for it. I have nothing to loose and everything to gain and you know what? I’m proud of myself for taking this step, for really putting my health first.
If you know anything about me, you’ll know that I’m very honest. I speak my truth and I want to share this journey with you all because I need to be accountable.
I want to feel better, to hopefully loose that gorgeous muffin top that sticks to my mid section, to have more clarity, and let’s face it – as a Mum, I need all the energy I can get!
I’ll be sure to share the good, the bad and the ugly, plus any tips and tricks I learn along the way.
