Becoming the best version of yourself if not a one stop shop, if you ask me. I am still on the continual quest on becoming the best Hilary Ansell I can be. Don’t get that mixed up with who I think I should be or look like but embracing my strengths, learning to work on my flaws, and embracing my quirks! I don’t need to be perfect or have my life look like someone else’s to be happy, but you bet I can be inspired or challenged by people who are doing what they do excellent! I believe excellence inspires others and I know that God is not done with me and I am surely not done learning and growing. So why not strive for more, for better opportunities, to fit back into my wedding dress. If you ask me, that gets me pumped!
I am mostly talking about my physical health right now but what I have learned on this physical health journey is that our mental and physical state are so in sync! I started this 30-day cleanse at the tail end of October and lost 14 pounds. It was tough in the beginning, the cravings and breaking bad habits, but my biggest take away from this experience is the self-control I gained. Or rather had, but never knew it was there. I am an emotional eater, when I am watching a chick flick, I would snack. When my son was in the hospital, I would eat a lot. And believe me I do not look back on that season of my life with regret, I was simply doing the best I could in that moment. To now be able to look at the food that once controlled me and be able to pass it up is so empowering!
I won’t bore you with the details, but I was sitting on the couch one night and a friend from high school reached out to me on social media letting me know of what she was doing and how good she felt on it. I started doing my research on the product and reading other blog posts and watching YouTube reviews and the results amazed me. It was so exciting to see people’s bodies and minds change as they detoxed different foods from their day to day diets. I got so excited I told her, SIGN ME UP! The first week I lost my first 5 pounds and now it’s been 6 weeks and I have lost a total of 14 pounds. I told myself I would just try this quietly and not post about it because I didn’t want to come off annoying, but I can’t help but share. It’s amazing and I truly feel the best I have ever felt. I don’t want to overwhelm you with all the details but if you have any questions or want more info just let me know.
I wanted to share my result pictures so far because that is what inspired me to get on board, seeing real results. I haven’t yet reached my goals but in the meantime I am going to enjoy the journey! So here you go, hope this is encouraging!
