I’ve been wanting to work with Sakara Life for.. YEARS. Literally. Everything they stand for aligns with how I strive to feel, eat and practice daily life. If you’re not familiar with Sakara, it is a woman-founded wellness company/program that is anchored in treating food as medicine. I read a quote a few years back that changed how I view food:
Not that long ago, I put a question box up on my Instagram Stories asking what YOU would choose as a career for me (besides full time mommin’, of course) and I wasn’t surprised that most of the answers included “something with food” and “nutritionist.” I guess I’m pretty transparent! As many of you know I like to dabble here and there in all things I’m passionate about and food + living a healthy lifestyle have ALWAYS been at the very top of my list. So, I decided to do something about it and further my education on the subjects – more to come on that another time. But, it’s not only “back to school” time for my kids, it’s my turn too!
I truly am SO proud to say.. “I completed the Whole30!”
This was such a feat for me, mentally more than physically, and that’s why I have to pat myself on the back for making it through with ZERO cheats. On the real: I’ve perpetually throughout life thrown in the towel when things get “too hard” and I told myself when I started this that I WAS going to make it through NO MATTER WHAT. I can’t even believe how fast the month flew by. I definitely thought it would drag along and the moment where I could stick a piece of chocolate in my mouth would never arrive. But it’s here and you know what? I don’t even want the chocolate! Along with some of my major cravings subsiding (and realizing it was just a “you want what you can’t have” kinda thing during the process), I’ve lost 5 lbs. (putting me back at pre-pregnancy weight – yay!), I’ve gotten compliments on my skin looking great and glow-y, and I’ve learned SO MUCH about what we eat and why.
