Healthy eating

To say I have over indulged where food and drink is concerned over the summer is an understatement!

I am normally fairly healthy and live by the 80:20 rule of everything in moderation. However with the kids being off and being lucky enough to be away most of the summer it’s more slipped into 1:99 in other words being healthy 1% of the time and naughty 99%.

Regardless, it’s been fun! Isn’t that what holidays are for? However I am now 8lbs heavier than I was two months ago and feeling very unhealthy. So it’s time to change.

I am using Arbonne nutrition to get back to feeling and looking my best. 

I will be having two protein shakes per day, one blended with fruit and a superfood supplement called Green’s balance also by Arbonne and the other for convenience will be a pre made one.

I’ll be including  a healthy meal along with snacking on fruit and replacing my usual coffee with Arbonne’s fizz sticks which are like a natural energy drink.


Here are my before pictures. I am aware I am by no means over weight but in comparison to my normal toned and slim figure I can feel the extra weight and my clothes do not feel good on me.

Affirmations

Lately I have been looking more and more into the power of self belief and affirmations. Affimations are basically positive statements or quotes which sustain a positive mental attitude.

I’ve been listening to ‘The Secret’ on audio as I’m not great at focusing on reading but audio is great as I can listen while I’m doing a mundane task such as ironing. You really have to read or listen to it to comprehend but it works on the premise that what you put out into the universe you get back.

In other words if you have in your mind that you are already successful, have the things you want then that is what you receive. It’s really opened up my eyes and made me realise there is no point to having negative thoughts as it only attracts more negativity. For example someone might be of the mind set ‘people look down on me as I’m a single mum’. Well if you go around with that attitude in your head then that’s obviously what you are putting out there so you get it back in terms of how people see you.

Instead if you get in your head ‘people admire me for having the strength to successfully raise my children alone while carving out a career’ then you naturally radiate that image to people.

I could go on and on about the Secret and the Law of attraction but if you’ve already read it you will understand. If you haven’t read it then you need to!! 

In terms of affirmations these are personal statements about you and your life. They are different for everyone and change over time. 

Here are a few of mine

.. I am confident in approaching people of all backgrounds 

..I attract positive, likeminded people into my life

.. I am changing my life for the better,

I have about twenty and I read them to myself as often as possible 

What are your affirmations? Xx

Here Goes-Introduction

 

Welcome to my blog-I have titled this blog; enhancing my life for two reasons. Firstly because its primary focus is to share my journey as I strive to live a better life on all levels; as a parent, in my career, my health and my mind set and way of thinking. Secondly, one of the goals I am working towards is running a successful massage, beauty and holistic therapy business which I have called Enhance.

So this leads on then to my background really. Basically since leaving full time education at the age of 21 I have worked in education-until recently further education. It’s something which I loved particularly the interaction with students. However, while I do not want to get into political discussion, unfortunately further education took a big hit when funding cuts were made. After taking voluntary redundancy I decided to retrain in beauty therapy as its something which I have always had an interest in along with health and wellness. Anyway, this is what I did and I have recently started out with my own mobile business Enhance Massage and Beauty. I work part time in primary education but my ultimate aim to for my business to be financially viable enough for me to do it full time. This therefore leads me nicely to talk about my second business.

I am also an Independent Arbonne Consultant. I was introduced to Arbonne by a friend at the point when I was starting to look not only to use higher quality products in my treatments but also for something to run alongside my other commitments to boost my income and develop my business. Arbonne is a 35 year old ultra premium skincare, health and wellness company which operates by word of mouth or as its formally known ‘network marketing’ in order to bring the highest quality products to the consumer at a lower cost.

I was drawn to this business as not only do I have a passion for beauty but also for health and wellness and also generally focusing on developing a positive mind set and ‘can do’ attitude and surrounding myself with positive and likeminded people is so important; I have experienced far too much negativity in my working life and realised things needed to change. My goal now is to build my business and at the same time transform and inspire the lives of others. I love Arbonne and the products and I love being a massage and beauty therapist.

So now here I am at the beginning of my journey and I look forward to sharing it with you…
