A little over a year ago I was in a completely different state of mind and body. I was depressed, feeling lost and just sluggish. All around unhappy with where I was. 🙅🏼
I decided that I really needed a change in my life because honestly I am the only person in control of my life. I went out in search and came across a challenge group that was gonna start up. It was gonna have workouts, healthy eating, motivation and tips on how to change your lifestyle. I loved fitness and I love food so I figured this could be a way to help me figure out what on earth was wrong with me.
I started drinking Shakeo daily, doing my workouts (because I knew my coach would call me out lol), and started really learning more about food and how nutrition has an enormous impact on your daily life. Food can really make or break you.
If you eat like crap – you feel like crap. Simple as that. I learned that I was using food as a way to cope and control my life which is NO BUENO.
I had to learn how to change my mindset and see food as not an enemy but a welcomed friend into my life. And that was because everytime I ate something I was in pain and that just spiraled me even more!
I realized through all this that my body was starving as well. I was nutrient starved. No wonder my body was rejecting me. No wonder my periods were all over the place (sorry guys – I am gettin real), no wonder my stomach was always gassy and bloated. My body was starving for nutrients and constantly asking for it and in turn I was feeding it processed junk because I just isn’t know any better.
So swing around to now – I feel the best I have ever felt in my entire life. I took a chance and tried something new and found that is exactly what I needed! 💋🎉
I still drink my Shakeo everyday to get all those nutrients in, plus I have added in juicing as well (which can be added to Shakeo and it is awesome!!). The effects that have taken up on my body from healthy eating (hanging out around the perimeter of the grocery store), adding in exercise and flexibility are simply incredibly amazing.
I am happier, motivated, my workouts are WAY better than they ever have been and I am just becoming who I truly am! I am able to because I have nothing holding me back now!
Food is Medicine! So bottoms up!
