I am a wife, mother, primary school teacher, personal trainer, and nutrition coach. However, I feel that I am not defined by just one role but feel that over time I have evolved into the person I am today – Wendy.
In 2013 I decided to make some massive changes to my lifestyle and in essence to my family’s lifestyle. I was 50kg overweight after having my second child and trapped in a cycle of unhealthy eating and constantly feeling tired. I made the decision I didn’t want to be a sideline mum, I wanted to be present and active in my children’s lives and be a better role model for my girls.
I joined a 12-week challenge and tackled it over the Christmas holidays (what was I thinking!). It was hard work, however, I learned that the easiest part was moving more and eating better, the hardest part was breaking the cycle of unhealthy eating and changing my mindset.
