If you knew me before today, you know that I’m a wife and mother as well as a business owner for the last 11 years. The business and my family keeps me busy most of the time, without a whole lot of extra (like so many other people). So why start a new blog and business? There are a few reasons.
The first is that when I started this journey earlier this year, I was gearing up to be the healthiest that I’ve ever been. I was eating well (or so I thought) and exercising 3-4 times a week. Then I had constipation, bloating and discomfort for the first time in my life and it wouldn’t go away. Months went by, trying different things and taking Miralax every single day. My friend Elizabeth told me about Whole30 and I figured, what’s there to lose? You can read about my Whole30 journey here. During Whole30 I had been sharing things about what I was doing and I had a lot of people asking questions. There were a handful of my friends that started Whole30 because I had shared what it’s done for me. That was a turning point for me…I realized that people were listening to what I was saying about health because they wanted to turn their lives around too. I don’t say that to sound prideful at all, but I felt a sense of responsibility to share what I was learning. I felt pressure, but also honored that they trusted what I had to say. I knew that I couldn’t just keep this information to myself, I needed to keep sharing it with whoever wanted to listen….
