Amazing how one thing can create a domino effect. If someone told me I would be into organics and health/wellness, I would not have believed it. I am a true girly girl...love shopping; shoes, purses, clothes, makeup, I love it all.
I was NEVER one with a weight problem growing up. But when you have children and allow life to control you, things happen. I let that happen to me and after my second child, took 9yrs to finally lose the 35lbs that would not budge. I felt liberated. But not only did it make me feel GREAT physically, but also emotionally and mentally! All of a sudden the world was my oyster!
It was during my weight loss that I realized the importance of portion control, sugar intake, the importance of drinking water, and making physical activity as part of a lifestyle, not a temporary fix til you reach your goal. I then become concsious of what my family was consuming - in and on our bodies.
If we become educated on what we eat and everyday products put on ourselves, we would be OUTRAGED. We should be ANGRY. We are killing ourselves, and sadly only a mere less than 10% really take this seriously. But we don't question it...we gotta eat! We gotta live...so why bother? Ignorance is not bliss..knowledge is power.
Everything we need for optimal health is right in front of us through nature before the chemicals, pesticides, steroids and everything else common in everything.
My mission really is to make people aware...not to twist one's arm, but to make you take a serious look, and make a decision to get in front of the trend before it becomes a way of life. Going green, going organic, getting healthy, seem to be 'buzz words' now, but fact is consumers are now demanding a better way. And slowly but surely everyone is getting on the bandwagon. Where are you?
