I believe the key to having a healthy relationship with food is nourishing your body with tasty foods that are good for you. You don’t need to starve yourself or deprive yourself. Instead, we all need to learn to eat to live, not live to eat.
We all have those days or weeks when our relationship with food can be a bit shaky and off. Our intentions start off good, we wake up with a goal to make healthy food choices and move our bodies, but then throughout the day we create excuses like “I’m too busy, I don’t have time with work, it’s easier to buy takeaway” etc. However, on these days food should not be the enemy! We need to learn to create a healthy relationship with our mind and the food we’re putting into our bodies. Learning to love your body will help you to understand the importance of feeding it the best fuel.
Self-love and life experience has made me to want to learn more about healthy foods and has given me a passion to help praise it to others. Knowledge is power; the more you learn about what you’re putting in your mouth, the more respect you gain for the healthy foods you eat and feed to your family.
I am a first time mum that has recently returned to work three days a week. Finding the time to move my body and eat nutritious foods is extremely important to me, but can be a challenge at times. I need to keep my energy levels up to keep up with my little man, continue with all the #mumlife housework, go to work and run a blog. My life can be extremely busy! I want my son and future children to learn good habits surrounding food and exercise. I believe that it’s my duty as a mother. I have to make time to create these healthy habits for myself so they too can follow and see these habits as a normal part of life. All the while showing them there needs to be a balance, because there’s more to life than just nutrition and exercise.
I heard about an online health & fitness tool called Voome, which ended up being a great solution to help me achieve my goals. After researching it, I found that it was designed by the same creators of the Michelle Bridges 12 week challenge. I am in love!! You will be too. It ticks all the boxes for me!
As I want to maintain my healthy lifestyle and continue on this journey for a lifetime, I believe it can help me achieve this. Voome is not just a quick fix. I love that you can access it online, anywhere and anytime! This is so convenient for me being a busy mumma, as I can workout when Cruz sleeps or early in the morning. It’s so handy, with quick and effective workouts between 10-30 minutes. Not only is it jam-packed with healthy recipes and workouts, you also receive weekly emails with extra tips and motivation to keep you inspired.
One of my favourite things about Voome is that they have created ready made meal plans. There are so many to choose from depending on your lifestyle and how you eat. The meal plans are great for time poor mummies, as they provide you with a bunch of nutritious recipes that can be downloaded straight into shopping lists! This is so handy for me as I love to be organised for the busy week ahead and it gives me more time for cuddles with Cruz. I am currently enjoying making the Apple Muesli for breakfast and the Chicken with Sweet Potato Wedges and Avocado Salad from one of the collections (without avo as I’m allergic). The muesli is so easy to prepare, I make it for Cruz and I the night before in a jar.
I am looking forward to the weeks ahead and seeing what my mind and body can achieve with Voome. I believe it will not only help me smash my goals of self love, maintaining healthy eating and exercising but also help me to find that healthy balance with other aspects of life.
Stay tuned as I will keep you posted on my progress!
