It’s that question we always ask when someone makes a lifestyle change. Why. Why now. I’ve thought a lot about it in the last few months and so many reasons come to mind.
I can honestly say that 2017 has been a year of major changes in my life. In July I left a settled home, a husband, heck a country to return to the UK after realizing that my marriage was an unhappy one. I had moved to the UAE in 2010, fell in love, left a job I loved and forgot who I was. During this time I had distanced myself from my family, lost friends and spiraled into a very unhealthy lifestyle.
I’ve managed to repair most of the unhappiness. I’m back in the UK doing a job I absolutely adore, have an amazing relationship with my family (who to be honest got me through the last few months) and Im rebuilding those friendships that I stupidly let get broken. It’s a healthy lifestyle that is going to take the most time.
So why fight. Why put so much importance in my health. Why blog about it…
I decided to blog this journey for several reasons. If I can do it anyone can. I used to be the biggest couch potato but not anymore. I want to live a long healthy life. I want to be able to run for a bus and not take the rest of the journey to recover. I want to wear clothes and not have them wear me. I want to feel comfortable in my own skin. The fight I have in me is strong and the fight I have ahead is a lifelong struggle.
If you’ve had the same thoughts, the same kind of journey or are considering taking that step back to happiness drop me a line. We may be able to get each other through it.
Love as always,
