Mother’s Day

I know it’s just another commercial day, but it’s also a day to stop and think about what your mum has done for you or what you have done for your own kids.

To remember and think of loved ones we’ve lost. Babies, children, mums, grandmothers. They were all amazing and they memories will live on in our hearts.

My day started with scrambled eggs and a coffee made by my beautiful daughters then I got a big box of surprises from them so sweet but the best is always the homemade cards and gifts.

My Mother’s Day Card from my youngest I love this with all my heart not a Picasso but sure she’s only 5.

So after all this I had some peace and quiet to read a few chapters of my book before I went downstairs to make their breakfast. Then we cuddled up on the sofa to watch Mamma Mia 2.

Then we got ourselves sorted and went out for a lovely walk round #hillsboroughforestpark I love it there I love walking round the lake and the picture opportunities so many breathtaking scenes including 2 swans building a nest for their little signets.

Then I got more presents from my mum so spoilt but the best bit is spending time together and watching the kids running about and having fun in the fresh air.

We stopped midway for a wee break I know it’s like a mile but takes us about two hours to get round. So a few giant chic buttons and an #eshot for me and we were on our way again.

I cant not also mention this amazing mummy who gave birth to 3 little white kittens and a lonesome black one. So cute I want to keep them all, she’s being such a good mummy.

Last night my brother came down and my niece and we all had a Chinese for tea. Special occasion and all I didn’t do too bad just a handful of chips but the honey chilli chicken wasn’t the healthiest but I don’t eat takeaways very often so it’s ok and it was a special occasion.

So now it’s back to Monday lots of exciting meetings and other things happening and back to some cleansing, more meditation and more getting out into the fresh air.

Work work work

I love this memory so much my little girl Cara singing the song Bills it was so cute

I have bills like everyone else and when you’re a single mum they can become overwhelming as you struggle to pair for repairs, credit card payments, giving your kids everything they want like horse riding and dance lessons, days out, mortgage, phones, rates, food, electricity, oil, solicitors, school trips, brownie trips, birthday parties, presents, Christmas and the list goes on.

What was I doing? A part time job paying a basic wage with no advancement because I was a single mum and couldn’t work full time and didn’t want to lose the time with my kids and pay my wage to a Nursery.

I had had enough of struggling so I took a chance on an opportunity that would help my health, looking at me yeah she’s fit and healthy, like I say never judge a book by its cover

Inside I was stresses

Anxious

Depressed

Tired

Brain fog

Demotivated

Unhappy

Struggling

Disappointed with life

Then this opportunity not only took all that away but it is giving me the chance to build my own business, my own team with my friends and family with no overheads apart from my food and the Chance to rank advance and earn as much money as I can dream of achieving.

I have been looking for my dream career my whole life and only after my life falling to the absolute bottom and climbing back up again and grabbing onto this opportunity did I find this opportunity.

There are no qualifications needed

No experience

No interviews

Flexible working

Work from your phone anywhere anytime

Spend more time with your family

Work round my kids

Feel amazing

Earning potential how far can you dream

Free products and events

Full training and support

Free holidays

Recognition

Awards

The list goes on everything never did I think a company offered every single perk you could ever think of no other company in the world offers these benefits

You set your own targets and goals

You build your business when you want no pressure

So so so thank full to the people who through their life experience of working. In the corporate world they are righting all the wrongs of previous network marketing companies and health and wellness companies.

Who wouldn’t want to be a part of a company that doesn’t compromise on anything, has been making billions for 17 years and giving this back to its employees bonuses and commission never heard off and entering new untapped markets.

Huge opportunity to finally be asked what is your dream?

Because this company can make the come true if you are hungry enough for it

10,000 hits and going strong

I can’t believe my little blog to help other single parents in their health and fitness goals, all the issues that come with being a single parent from career, money and debts to helping people deal with eating disorders, fertility problems, depression and anxiety.

My life has changed dramatically over the past 4 years from being married with 2 young kids with a steady job with all you benefits you could want to now being my own boss, setting up Moodfit.co.uk my personal training and nutrition business as well as my fashion boutique Moodchic.com

My love of alternative therapies, after going through 3 years of counselling I discovered mindfulness and am now sharing with others, I have a course to do but shared some of my learnings a few weeks back at the #brownies #magherally

Taking some time out to connect our minds and bodies and learn to live in the moment and be grateful for what we have including mostly pets it would seem and a few mums and dads threw in there too.

My moodfit nutritional plans and my recipes which are designed to help boost your mood through the essential vit b range, omega range as well as a lot of others. Eating the right foods can have an amazing effect on the mind and the body.

I love food don’t know how I ever starved myself my fear of getting fat and not eating the right foods, now I love what I eat all of the fresh fruit and veg, natural sugar treats and the amazing nutritional system which gives me that added energy, mental clarity and ability to deal with stress I never thought I would ever experience as I couldn’t get this from food alone.

I am on my 2nd isabody challenge the last time I lost a lot of toxins through the cleansing days and it showed in my skin the colour, cellulite gone, more toned and lost weight I didn’t realise I had to lose until I saw the photos. This time around I am doing my diet and Isagenix nourishing tonics, snacks and shakes and concentrating on weight lifting, kettlebells, resistance and HIIT so cant wait for the final results. This is also a business I am building to help others to not only lose weight but gain so much nutrition and also make money at the same time. This was my first challenge.

I just love helping people giving them different and better solutions than taking tablets, there are so many other therapies, herbal remedies for all of life’s stresses and strains and if our bodies are healthy with the right nutrition then we just need to maintain and occasionally get a treatment done like acupuncture, do mindfulness everyday, positive affirmations there are so many things today if you want to achieve more than your 9to 5 job.

I just ant to say thank you to everyone who has supported me and been a part of this journey I do it all for these 2 amazing little girls who without my life would be a lot less stressful but also a less fun and filled with love.

So what’s next?

I will continue to build my brand with membership sites and programme, getting involved in the community to help educate people on the importance of health and fitness, the impact it has on our mental health as well as our future health.

I have joined up with an amazing social enterprise called purpose enterprises we want to be able to offer programmes into schools and workplaces to help deal with stress and the underlying cause of depression, anxiety and stress. By offering alternative therapies to help give people the skills to deal with stress and tools for their everyday life to help them succeed in all areas of life.

We want to build a sanctuary where we hope to be able to offer a range of holistic therapies, nutritional advice, exercise, counselling and more to try and tackle the issues of mental health before we have another suicide.

Pancake Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone

It’s pancake day totally forgot this morning so no pancakes for brekkie so will have to do for supper

Pancakes don’t have to be unhealthy either you can make them dairy free and gluten free.

Try this recipe tonight for topping use maple syrup or honey or add cocoa to your mix try not to overdo the toppings this is where you can easily up the fat calories

Or if you want you can have savoury pancakes for lunch or dinner. Try this chickpea was recipe with or without the rest of the ingredients. Don’t let recipes restrict you if there is something I can’t or don’t want to eat in a r recipe I either take it out or replace with something I do like or a healthy alternative

So enjoy pancake day healthily and think about your transformation. Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday so what is your weakness chocolate, crisps, cheese?????? Why not try and do without for 30 days and see if you can not give into the temptation it will make you stronger and give you more control over your diet to make the right decisions

Yummy Saturday healthy pizza treat 🍕

Saturday is always a night when we like to splurge but it doesn’t have to be unhealthy or high in fat.

I made at the kids request sweet potato crust pizza so healthy worth slow release carbs this will fill you up and is tasty and doesn’t make you want too eat the whole thing and fill up on salad as well.

I love to make my slaw I used kale spinach and rocket, grated cheese and carrots, grated red cabbage, brocolli, pumpkin seeds and nuts so almonds, pistachio or cashews for the dressing I use olive oil, salt, lemon juice and a bit of natural Greek yogurt. I also make my own sweet potato chips with a pinch of salt and a splash of olive oil for 40 mins up high.

This is the recipe for my pizza base you too with tomato purée and a bit of passata then add your topping so I love cheese I love cheddar, Parmesan, Parmesan and goats cheese on it I also love mushrooms on it and occasionally pineapple when cooked I throw some rocket and sliced 🥑 so nutritious with lots of omega 3.

If you can’t be super healthy then try swapping your crust filled and thick crust for the thin crust, cut down the size of your pizza or cut down the number of slices you eat fill up on water not fizzy drinks and some nutritious salad.

Saturday night snacks make your own popcorn sprinkle a bit of salt, some spices nuts and seed or some lentil or quinoa crisps healthy plant protein and very light.

Oh sweet sugar leave me alone

Anyone addicted to sugar??????

I think we all are and why????!

Basically the processed sugar, butter and icing sugar and processed chocolates are all full of additives that’s are addictive. When we eat these types of foods we get a fast burst of energy from the fats but unless we use up this energy we are left feeling tired and therefore crave more of this. Then we feel fat and guilty and become depressed and eat more anyone else felt like this and done this????? I know you all have.

So how do you stop this addiction. Cold turkey I’m afraid. I did and I thought I would collapse after one day and binge out but I didn’t.

What’s did I do? I replaced the processed sugars with natural sugars, making treats with protein powder, nut butters, oats and dried and fresh fruit. These will give you the sugar you need for energy but are also slow release so you will not get a sudden high and then feeling of fatigue and it will stabilise your sugars. It will also fill you up leaving you feeling satisfied and not wanting to eat more.

Why is sugar so bad for me?

Well for one it will make you fat unless you do lots of exercise, this fat will mess with your energy, levels, you could end up with diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease is the fat builds up in your arteries, Harmon also problems, your teeth will fall out and I have heard so many stories about kids having to get their baby teeth pulled out because they are rotten and fought because of the sweets, chocolates and fizzy drinks they consume.

So whose fault is it? Parents?????

Yes it is as we are the ones that are giving them the sweets. Do we really know the damage to our kids and our own bodies or are we ignoring this. Do parents know the long term damage they are doing to their kids by letting them eat this type of stuff on a daily basis. Sugar should not be their main source of energy and kids will fight with you to eat healthily however there are treats you can make that have natural sugars that will give them the sugar they need that are healthy and will actually contribute to their health rather than damage them and make them susceptible to long term chronic illnesses.

It is so easy I made some cookies for the kids just mashed a banana add some oats then raisins or cocoa or fruit to flavour them cooked in oven for 15 mins Delish it’s that easy and not expensive either.

So it’s up to the parents to lead by example and to learn about nutrition if you don’t want to end up with chronic disease and relying on tablets and living in hospitals. Personally I want to enjoy my life and be fit and healthy and have the same for my kids.

This is why I became a nutritionalist to learn more about our food and what our bodies need and don’t need and to make delicious healthy food for me and my kids.

Through purpose enterprises NI we will be dealing with some of these problems. Health and nutrition and it’s impact on mental health as well as stress, money issues, unemployment and suicide. To learn more check the social enterprise on social media we are putting our plans in place to tackle mental health at the root and not just accepting that medication is the only way as we have learnt it isn’t. There are so many services and therapies that are more effective in the long terms with no side effects apart from health and good mental health.

So make a change today ditch the processed sugars for good.
