After experiencing a life-threatening illness, I questioned whether or not my life would ever go back to normal after going through all of the surgeries and treatment. Fortunately, I survived and it didn’t take a rocket scientist (something my husband happens to be, but of no assistance in this area!) to realize that the best way to recover both physically and emotionally was not to go back to what I considered a normal life.
Just like many people, my daily life involved just making it through a crazy work day without falling asleep, getting my errands done and grabbing whatever the easiest food on the go was for a meal. The weekends were open season as far as food and, for some reason, I felt it was okay to eat anything and everything in sight. It never occurred to me that what I considered a normal lifestyle with terrible eating habits could contribute to a devastating cancer diagnosis.
Anyone who has experienced a traumatic event, whether a physical illness or the loss of a loved one, understands that you can end up in a very dark place. Hope and faith can come into question. I didn’t want to get stuck in that negative cycle and chose to make changes in my life and never look back. I wanted to get healthy and live the good life.
But what does that mean? Living the good life means that I have to feel good and have a positive outlook. First, I had to change my poor eating habits. Since vegetables were never part of the picture, I wanted to find some way to consume these without getting nauseous. By some miracle, the opportunity to try the NutriBullet made its way to me. From the first sip of my first NutriBlast, I knew that my goals with regard to healthier eating were going to be met and my life would change for the better.
Little did I know at the time that using my NutriBullet on a daily basis would result in this amazingly wonderful snowball effect in my life. It makes perfect sense that if you feel healthy, you'll feel the benefits in other aspects of your life, as well.
It’s been over two years now since the NutriBullet became a part of my life, and there isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t feel grateful for how it has helped me transition into a better life, into living the good life!
