Before I started my Health and Wellness journey I was a really burnt out, unmotivated Mum of 2 girls. I had a healthy 3 year old daughter Matilda and then in 2011 I gave birth to my 2nd daughter Willow who was born with Congenital Heart Disease. We nearly lost Willow when she was 6 weeks old. As you can image our world, MY WORLD was turned upside.
I fell into some really unhealthy eating and drinking habits, I became the heaviest I have ever been, I was cranky, I had lost my spark and I was on a really fast downward spiral. I would rely on coffee during the day and red wine at night and I really couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I was wearing a mask and I was showing the world everything was ok.. But deep down inside I was struggling!
In 2012 I wanted to make a difference, I wanted to give back to my daughter's charity Heart Kids. However what I was hoping for was to breakthrough some of those bad habits. I wanted to change my health.
I started training for an Olympic size Triathlon. Something I had never done before!! I completed that Triathlon, however nothing much had changed. I was still the heaviest I had ever been, I didn't know how to fuel myself correctly, my recovery was really really poor and nothing much had changed.
Time went on and I tried a number of other "diets" a number of other "quick fixes". These programs weren't for me, they were not a long term healthy lifestyle.
In 2014 my close friend threw me a life line, she introduced me to a Nutritional Cleansing program.
In my first 2 weeks on the program I released 3.5kg. Within 3 weeks my energy went through the roof. I started exercising again, I had the motivation to start running again and I joined a gym. I discovered this incredible mental clarity, like a fog had been lifted off my shoulders. I could focus again! I became a much calmer more patient and a much happier Mum, Wife and Friend. I was finally getting my spark back! I couldn't believe it!!
So with the mentoring from my friend I finished my first 30 days on the program and I had released 5kg of unwanted toxic fat. 56cm off my entire body and 10cm from my stomach!
I continued on with the program, losing 8kg and then 10kg overall. I was over the moon. I couldn't believe how this program had completely transformed my life in 2 and a half months. 10KG IN 2 1/2 MONTHS!
Organically I started to share the program, it was hard not to.. people were coming up to me and saying "Sarah you have lost weight" "You're glowing" "You have all this extra energy" "You seem really really happy". What is it that you are doing?
So I started sharing the program with family and friends and that is when I created my Facebook page My Life Health Happiness. Because I wanted to share this program on a much larger scale.
Today I have helped more than 5000 people globally with their health transformation. Prior to becoming a Health & Wellness Mentor I was a Wedding & Events Manager. My passion has now shifted into the health sector. I loved to help people cast the vision and create their special day. Now I can create the vision of my clients health and mentor them through their program to achieve their ultimate health goal and beyond. This is what really lights me up!
As I mentioned above before I started my Nutritional Cleansing program I was a tired, cranky, overweight Mum. Previously a Wedding & Events Manager. My husband Paul was an Electrician. We used to trade time for money. Quite often we would cross paths on a Friday. My work days were mainly weekends, late nights, public holidays and Paul worked Monday - Friday.
Being a family with 2 children it wasn't an ideal lifestyle. Our time wasn't spent on the weekends together it was when we could find the time. It wasn't a lifestyle that I was enjoying. I guess that is why I fell into those unhealthy bad habits, because I was just trying to get through the mundane.. the groundhog day!
By saying YES and making the decision to change my health it has opened up so many opportunities for me. This has allowed me to design a life that I never thought was possible. I get to work from home with my beautiful children. I get to be there for them, I am able to take them to school every morning, stay and do reading with them, I can attend their sports days and my husband is with me too because he was able to make the choice of being at home with us as a house husband. I believe for many families that this is their dream, to have 2 parents at home, spending quality time together with their children. The time freedom that we now have from this opportunity is priceless. We are able to go on family holidays whenever we chose, we don't need to ask a boss "can we take time off work"? We are not stuck in jobs where the hours and holidays are dictated to us. We are here, we are home, we are one, we are a family of four.
Our dreams and our vision for the rest of our lives is something that I never thought was possible. As of July 2018 we are packing up our lives, putting it into a caravan and we are going on a trip of a lifetime. We are going to travel Australia with our 2 kids. We are going to homeschool them through Distance Education Victoria and I will continue to help as many people as I can on this phenomenal program. I am going to visit all of my clients over Australia. I will be holding info sessions and freedom lifestyle business training. You will find me doing group workouts and fun social catch up's across Australia.
I am so excited to meet and help more people around this beautiful country.
