🌼 good morning! i hope that you guys have a super great start to the week! stay focused and positive!! •read below!• i wanted to kind of open up a bit about my wellness journey that i’ve been on the past few weeks! about 5 weeks ago i realized that i really needed to get my shit together! i was, no lie, eating trash every single day for every meal, drinking multiple large cokes A DAY, not having regular bowel movements 👎🏾.. my gut, reproductive system, mental health, immune system, skin, and many other things were so off balance and i looked and felt like 💩 i got off of bc last year in april and my cycle was still off balance aka irregular and sometimes heavy and 20 days long.... yeah.. my body was basically screaming for help at this point!
i decided to get myself together and start taking care of myself. i felt gross and had no energy. i didn’t even recognize myself in the mirror.
my first step was to eliminate fast food and start eating a cleaner diet. i knew what my macros were and started to pay closer attention to what i was putting in my body. no sodas, no processed foods, no candy, no bs!
i started to drink more water and my bf even got me a gym membership! 🤩
soon after i started to get onboard with vitamins and supplements. iron and b12 were my first steps since i knew i was anemic from years ago. 🤢 i then added vitamin c, zinc, selenium, milk thistle, maca, and vitex into my regimen to 1. restore all of the vitamins that bc depletes... i was soooo pissed to find out that bc actually deprives your body of some core vitamins! 2. things like milk thistle, maca, and vitex were gonna help heal my gut and liver and balance my hormones back out!
so here we are today and i’m feeling sooo much better! my skin and complexion look great! my energy levels are awesome, my period is back on track for the most part which points to my hormones getting in order. with mainly just nutrition alone i see a BIG difference in my body 😭💖 i have a long road ahead of me but i’m sooo happy that i started this journey! ✨. #wellness #maca #vitex #chasteberry #macapowder #hormones
