As my first blog post I figured I would introduce myself a little. This way you might get a better idea of why I started a blog in the first place! (Also, this will probably end up as my about page. Just sayin’)
A Little Backstory: For most of my life I’ve struggled with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, a lil’ bit-o-baggage around the middle… and then in my early twenty’s, after having my daughter, my body said “Hey, here is some severe cystic acne!”
As the story goes, I tried everything to heal my ailments. Though, I did try several different medications for my anxiety issues, I just couldn’t ever get my head around taking pills for acne. There had to be another way!
In 2007, I moved in with a plant-based, vegetarian girl who had glowing skin and lacked all body-fat. She said this was all due to “pure diet, dude”. So, since my lil’ bit-o-baggage around the middle was not so little anymore and my adult skin had decided to forsake me entirely and break out like a teenage boy in puberty, I decided to try her diet…
*Insert Angelic Chorus* I lost 30lbs in three months, my face was clear, my moods were completely stabilized, the sun was shining, the birds were chirping, there was world peace and THEN… I decided to eat like garbage again. (But, that’s a story for a later post…)
FLASH FORWARD TO TODAY: After almost ten solid years of personal research and on-and-off experimentation of a gazillion different diets, I have identified and overcome my obstacles to finally find what works for me. (Also a story for a later post…)
I am so inspired by what I’ve been able to accomplish in my own life that I just can’t keep it to myself! I am passionate about helping others look and feel their most healthy, happy, beautiful & vibrant by living a healthy lifestyle and eating real nutritious foods!
So… I started this here blog, became a representative for Miessence and enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where my education will equip me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention by studying a wide variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods!! (Oh, and I’ll get a certificate so I’ll legally be able to call myself a health coach…)
In the meantime, how can I help you-do-you?
