Yesterday, I had an appointment with my naturopath. We were talking about my weight loss and she asked me to tell her how it felt to lose the weight and what it meant to me.
My response: I saved my life. .
My brother died from an addiction to alcohol. When we think of addictions, our minds instantly think of drugs and alcohol. Addictions don't always come in a bottle, a can or can be smoked or swallowed. Some addictions are in our lifestyle. Including food.
Food has always been my drug of choice. It was how I numbed myself to forget about stress and also how I celebrated when life was going well. Food was always on my mind and I was constantly thinking about what I could eat next.
Getting healthy for me wasn't JUST about seeing the number on the scale go down. It was and still is about changing bad habits. Our nutrition plays such a huge role in how we feel, our emotions and also our long term overall health. .
Back then, I was single with no kids and now, I have a husband and two kids. I want to be around for my family and I want to make sure I am fueling my body with the best so I can live a long healthy life. My brother lost his battle and has taught me how precious and short this life really is. It is easy to think...I will start next week and keep pushing it off. .
Nothing in this life is guaranteed. Use the time you have now and act like your life depends on it - because it does. .
There is no better time to start than right this very minute. Life is short. .
If you need help getting started, I am only a message away.

Nature always wears the colors of the spirit 🍃💚
This color still looked great, but the client desired a new softer and lighter color finishing with a fresh haircut.

Always do you! No matter what everyone else is doing or the way the world tells you, life is simpler this way. The ‘right’ way aka how everyone else does things doesn’t have to be your way.💫
✨Always be yourself even if it makes you look silly✨ Although in this case I think there really is only 1 was to apply lipstick 💄
