Enough was enough.
I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.
I was frustrated at the number of times I found myself saying…this week will be different. This week I’ll sort out my diet, I'll get healthy…only to find myself turning back to the comforting rush of sugar, the bitter sweet knowledge that this is what my body was screaming at me to eat, but the reality that is was the last thing I needed.
I was well-versed at being unkind to myself…however the day that changed everything was the day I snapped at my three-year old. I shouted at him, completely unnecessarily, the pain I was experiencing, not physical but emotional, spilling out and converting into a frustrated, angry rant at an innocent three-year old.
His crumpled face broke my heart. I knew instantly, that if at that point in time I couldn’t make these changes for myself, then I must do it for my children.
I had a renewed sense of energy, a determination…I realised that change was no longer a ‘should’ but a ‘must.’ I wanted to become the best version of myself, the best mother, the best friend, daughter, health professional. I wanted to find the old me that I hadn’t seen for some time.
My journey had already begun. Finding my why. Finding my compelling reason…now I just needed some guidance, some information, a plan! I learnt, I read, I immersed myself in the science of human nutrition. I found myself becoming increasingly excited about the new pathway to health, step by step my energy, mood, hormone imbalance, anaemia, sleep, weight and so much more improved.
From there I went on to study for my Masters in Nutrition, before finally writing the book which documents how I went from feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and completely stuck, to thriving, freeing myself from my sugar addiction and enjoying more energy than I have ever experienced.
If you feel stuck in a rut, if you don’t know how to move forward, start by finding your why. Why is change a MUST for you? It is never too late to become who you were always meant to be.
I am truly delighted that Primal Living in a Modern World is now available as a second edition. We have been overwhelmed at how well the book has been received, with more than half of our second edition now sold within the first month of its release.
The struggle that I experienced, has now turned into my strength which is helping so many people turn their health around and experience increased energy, hormonal stability, improved mood and mental wellbeing, weight loss and improved digestive function. This is my passion and I am truly blessed to receive messages and emails on a weekly basis stating how lives have changed by this new understanding of how to work with your body not against it.
My hope is to inspire you to fall in love with taking care of that amazing body and brilliant brain you have.
