Writing this blog has always been a heart beat for me. However I have never had the time to truly sit and write about what goes on in my head when it comes to fitness and health.

I sit here, a mother of two young children. They are 3 and 4 years old and since having our first child, my life seemed to change (as they always say it does )

We then went and had my second child within 1 year of the first child and to say it has been a MAD 3 years since then is an understatement. I didn’t have the energy to write my Creative blog, never mind This blog.

I found out I had an over active thyroid. I tried Banting diet and failed and put on more weight. I also got high cholesterol and weird skin dryness…Everything slowed down from my speech to my limbs. I had no time to exercise never mind have the energy. To explain my recent world in 1 word I would say “surviving”. I became emotional, depressed, angry and so, oh so fatigued. The ‘failing mom’ notion was a real emotion and I was slipping into a crazy zone of life….

Having worked as a personal trainer in the fitness industry and after being fit my whole life, current state was nothing but a HUGE disappointment;  leaving me feeling down and out. My story is not over yet, but it is getting better as i make the right choices and as I give myself grace… Get the right medical care and also seek the Kingdom in the promises that are given to us.
