I began my journey to a better health at the end of June, I guess you get to the point of your life when you get sick and tired of having to take medication just to make it through your everyday life. I have struggled with high blood pressure and high cholesterol along with being over weight for half my life. I have been on some sort of medication it seems like for a lifetime.. I had to decide that this is my body, my journey and if I am going to live to see 40..let alone 50 then I needed to make some changes in my life.
I will be 40 this September 1st 2016! So I began my “journey to 40” On this journey I am taking a hard look over my life in all aspects from eating, working out, even my emotional and spiritual health!
Not only am I doing 40 minutes of heart health exercise a day I am learning to eat healthier and really be mindful of what I put in my body. I have now been gluten and sugar free for over 30 days...not going to lie it has not been an easy journey but one that is doable if you put your mind and heart into it. There were some days I just wanted to punch everybody and go eat a big box of Krispy Creams and a bunch of chicken fingers...lol But I didn’t and pushed though and continued on my juicing journey and drinking lots and lots of water a day! I even add peppermint oil to my water that helps cool down my system and curve my cravings!
I am blessed to be sponsored by Samba Fresh and owner Kit Dos as he guides me on the life changing journey. With his guidance I am able to start to understand the importance of what i put in my body and knowing the power of starting over with a cleanse and allowing your body to heal,restore and renew. They empower, educate and inspire others to be mindful of what they put in their bodies, the juice is always cold pressed, allowing a minimum mixing of air with the juices which results in very slow oxidation or decomposition. Using relationships with over 30 local organic/pesticide-free farms, we source all our fresh ingredients from farmers right here in Ohio.

Already I have began to start to feel my body begin to heal and not crave the things I used to. I now crave raw veggies, fruits and water...not to mention loosing 20 pounds and my blood pressure returning to normal!
Whats next you ask? Well I am going to continue on my “journey to 40” and will embark on a raw diet and enjoy my new outlook on life and embrace the RAW truth about they way I have been treating my body the past 20 years of my life!
Here is to a new found... Health, Body and Spirit!
I have been on a journey to juicing to a better health! Thanks to my juice sponsor Samba Fresh located in New Albany and Upper Arlington, Ohio. I began my journey June 24th, and I am not going to lie..the first week was rough as I took away eating sugary foods and gluten by the end of 7 days I wanted to rip someones head off! This is truly a journey of will power and a mind set, but when you put your mind set to "this is going to better my health and I will feel better..." I began to see a difference of the way I feel and look. Now 20 days later not only do I feel energized, I have lost 12 pounds and have been told I have a "glow" to my face! So exciting to see the difference and it is a motivation to keep juicing and eating healthy. I have always struggled with weight issues and hormone imbalance and have tried every diet known to man, but I have never stuck with a program. I now have a mission for my life to be more heart healthy so I am able to get off my blood pressure medication and hopefully soon my high cholesterol medications. I am going to continue this a part of my "journey to 40" this summer and will keep you all posted on the progress!
