2009 and 2019! So much has changed in my life and I am so dang grateful for all of it. ☺️ 10 years ago, I juggled parenting two young boys with my weekly nightshifts as a hospital pharmacist. 💊 My steady state was feeling tired, cranky, puffy, achy, and always hungry. I thought my normal was everyone else’s normal, too—and that I should just expect to feel crappy as I aged. I felt stuck on a slow moving conveyer belt towards decrepitude. 👵🏼 And then one day, I decided to take charge of my health and stumbled upon the paleo lifestyle.
Well, actually, @fitbomb
found it and told me about it. In response, I told him he was crazy for eating red meat and avoiding grains.
But after seeing Henry thrive on paleo for about a month, I decided to dive into the deep end. My life hasn’t been the same ever since. I even quit my job as a pharmacist after 14 years to focus on paleo evangelism full-time.
These days, I’m still a little achy (from going to the gym), a little sleep deprived (I’m a work in progress), and a lot grayer...but I’m so much happier and healthier. My kids have a sunnier mommy and Henry has a more patient and present partner.
I’ve got a tough boss now, but she understands the importance of balancing work and family life. 😜 Thank you all for following my journey and allowing me to pursue all the things that light a fire in me. I can’t wait to see what the next decade brings! 🙏
