Today marks a personal goal. I made a lifelong decision to myself a few months back to become very healthy. I changed my entire diet, I'm active every day, I've consumed way more water that I ever thought possible, and I've found out just how many muscles and sweat my body contains! In the last 3 1/2 months I've ran a total of just over 100 miles!! I've beat my 5K time by 10 min! I've added an extra 15lbs to my workout weights, I've increased my stamina, gained more energy and lost a total of 12lbs!! A lot of people ask me how I do it? What supplements do I take? What protein shakes do I drink? Well.... The answer is ALL NATURAL! I don't take any supplements or weight loss pills! (Nor have I ever). I don't just drink off the shelf protein shakes... I drink an all natural super food shake once a day and I've completely 100% changed my entire diet! I buy organic all natural food and stay on the outside perimeter of the grocery store. I portion out my food, I prep my meals, and I consume the correct amount of each food group that my body needs a day! I also add in 1 shot of all natural raw organic apple cider vinegar twice a day and 1 tsp of raw organic honey a day. (Look up the benefits!!) With cancer, high blood pressure, cholesterol and my type 1 diabetes running in the family, it's extremely important to me to make sure I teach my boys how to take care of the bodies we were given and try to live as long as we can! Since this decision, it went from a 'daily struggle to be healthy' to my way of life. I've had 2 knee surgeries ..my most recent less than a year ago, and since then my knee has hurt less!! (Granted I've had my days and nights I've slept with an ice pack and fell asleep to my wonderful husband massaging my swollen knee, but its improved!) my skin has been clearer, I've been happier and I've learned to accept the body that my kids ruined! 😜 I always thought I wanted to just be "skinny!" But even that's changed... I'm loving the definition I've noticed in my arms and legs...it's my way of life and it's beyond worth it!
