I'm continually amazed at my body. This journey has been and is truly amazing.
A little background...I just turned 43. ~
I grew up biting my nails. Never had nails honestly. ~
When I was 23 I started going to the nail salon and getting acrylic nails put on and kept that up about every 2-4 weeks for close to 18 years out of the last 20. ~
The last time I had my nails done was mid December 2017. ~
January 8, 2018 is the last time I got my hair colored. ~
I now make our shampoo and conditioner out of simple things such as organic coconut milk, apple cider vinegar, Dr. Bonner soap, distilled water and essential oils. My hair has NEVER felt softer...like absolute silk! 💜
The only lotions oils, etc.i put on my skin (this includes my face) is Shea butter (BTW...I love Shea butter), coconut oil, vitamin E and olive oil. ~
Since December I have completely changed my outlook on food and have changed my diet forever. ~
As of March 11, 2018...
I no longer consume any meat (put simply...if an animal has to die, I won't eat it)
I no longer consume dairy of any kind...cheese, butter, milk, yogurt, etc.
I also no longer consume processed foods. Boxed, bagged, anything altered with words I have no idea what they mean (are not natural). The only thing I eat is natural peanut butter (this is my treat so to speak and it so does the trick)
I consume fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, legumes, rice and herbs for flavoring. It's truly amazing what you can do with these foods! Honestly...crave these foods and do not miss anything about what I "gave up"...really...it's what I gained! ~
My hair, nails, skin, body, mind and so much more has forever changed. I've seen too much change for the better in me to think about going back to "the way I was".
Here's to natural, clean and healthy LIVING! ~
Have a BEAUTIFUL day everyone! 💜👍✌️🙏🙌
