Way back when, what really seems like a lifetime ago, I was working as a fitness professional coaching clients; leading them to better health via nutrition and exercise.
Meanwhile, my own health was failing.
I found myself rapidly gaining weight and required multiple energy drinks to just get through the day. You could say I wasn’t living my best life.
We re-prioritized our finances, which included selling our home, so that I could quit my job and make reclaiming my health a priority.
During that time of self-discovery and healing from adrenal fatigue, I realized how much I missed helping people.
And after much insistence from my husband, in 2010, I started this blog.
I poured my heart into it. I blogged consistently for several years, earning the trust and respect of my readers and followers.
I regularly received questions from my readers about exercise, nutrition, and supplements. That was my sweet spot.
Then, I started getting asked for my thoughts on essential oils. Which, at the time, I knew nothing about.
In my effort to learn more, I got started as a distributor for Young Living and thousands of my readers did too.
My business grew so fast, I decided to put my blogging on hold for obvious reasons.
I missed blogging more days than I didn’t. I missed the creative outlet it gave me.
But more importantly, I missed the unlimited reach it gave me to inspire women on their health journey.
During my absence from Healthy Living How To, I've been developing myself as a leader, building a business, and a team.
I've even had the opportunity to speak on stage at our company convention and other events in the network marketing industry.
So, while I still love me a good low-carb, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free chocolate donut, you won’t find me creating recipes in my spare time these days.
I've become a grandma. That in itself is worth blogging about.
As I return to blogging in 2018, I am excited to share all the things I've learned these past few years.
My hope with Healthy Living How To is not to give you a recipe for a healthy life. But to inspire you, by sharing mine, to create your own.
