I know one of my favourite theatre plays is Evita which is about an incredibly, strong and inspiring woman from Argentina but I never believed it would be the country that would highlight my story in their press.
I wouldn’t have known about this if it hadn’t of being for a follower from Argentina reaching out to me on Instagram and sending me the pictures of the media piece.
Social media gets a seriously bad reputation in lots of different ways but this highlights why it is so very powerful and can be used in such a positive way.
I have been blown away by the impact that my story has made. I won’t lie, I panicked that being away would mean I was losing vital awareness raising time. I didn’t need to worry however. I worked so hard up to going away putting things in place so I could take some time to myself on my holiday.
I did enjoy my holiday but I never fully switched off and coming home and seen us jump straight back into the campaigning.
I am so thankful to the Argentinian press highlighting my story to their residents and really helping protect and save thousands of lives. I know I joke about taking over the world but you know, your girl is trying. Whatever change we can make for the better, the better.
I can’t tell you how tasking the last few days have been, I’m not feeling great and adjusting again to the climate, life back home and the travel is taking some time.
It’s been a slow, annoying few days. They haven’t been productive as I would have loved them to be but the weekend is sure to mega, mega busy.
On Sunday feel free to come down to Acresfield Health Club and Spa, to support our staff walking to Scorton and back to raise money for Lyme Disease UK & Invisiyouth. Your support will mean so much to all the crew and every little helps.
There is always something for which we can continue to push ourselves for,to keep blossoming into the best person possible.
Thank you once again Argentina and let’s keep raising awareness not just in this area, this country but worldwide. There a lots of people to educate and protect.
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN.
Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
