Yes, I had two newborn babies and an energetic two year old but I also had heaps of energy, I was challenging myself, achieving goals and had high self-esteem.
I felt great and I wanted to help others to feel this way too! I wanted to empower others to make a lasting change to their health and wellness so I enrolled in a Lifestyle, Food and Wellness Coaching course and studied nutrition, physical activity, positive psychology and the psychology of behaviour change. I had found my passion!
At this point we were living in Melbourne, loving it’s vibrancy, our friends and where we lived, but missing having extended family close by. There was also that want to give our kids a good kiwi upbringing. So we decided to move ourselves back home to New Zealand.
Small town, rural NZ was a bit of a culture shock! I found myself fairly isolated as a stay at home mum and it was difficult meeting people to make friends. A lot of my good habits that I had previously formed, began to waiver.
And then life threw me the biggest curve ball yet…
