A bit about me…
I am a wife and mum of 2 beautiful girls and my bichon Cookie AKA the “cookie monster”. He is more of a human than a dog, extremely lazy and spends most of his time sleeping under our sofa. He likes to plod rather than run unlike his big sisters.
I trained as a children’s nurse and did this for 8yrs until I recently decided to take a career break.
I developed a passion for nutrition after discovering that I can actually enjoy food whilst shaping up with out the need to count points, syns, calories or replace meals with shakes. And better still I actually love it. So much so I qualified as a nutrition coach and I hope to use this to motivate and inspire others to lead a healthier lifestyle. In particular I would like to teach the younger generation about nutrition and fitness and help them to adopt a healthier lifestyle, starting with my very own children.
Nutrition isn’t all about losing weight its about health and happiness too. Educating our children and being role models, inspiring them to follow a healthy path and not fall into the trap of the diet world. I want my girls to grow up loving themselves and the bodies they are in. I hope by changing my ways and focusing on eating a “healthy diet” opposed to a “diet” I can achieve this. Easier said than done I know.
I absolutely love running and the benefits I feel from running. I have become a run leader in my running club to try and help others enjoy it as much as I do whilst taking on my own challenges. Next stop marathons and Ultra marathons.
I need to learn to love myself…….and this is the start of that journey. A journey of a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly.
Thanks for reading.
