I’m going to take you back in time, to my younger years, and have you picture this … I’m a 24 year old personal trainer with a degree in Kinesiology. I practice what I preach by eating a ‘healthy diet’ and exercising daily. Looking at me, you would probably think – “This girl has got her $#!% together.”
Now, let me draw the other half of this picture for you … I’m 24 and struggling with muffin top, along with this general look and feel of ‘puffiness’. I experience major gas and bloating on a regular plus I’m backed up like a malfunctioning septic tank – diagnosed as IBS.
The only thing I look forward to when I get out of bed in the morning, is going back to bed at the end of my day. Although I look young, healthy and in-shape on the outside, I feel like crap on the inside.
As you can clearly see now, I had some issues. The thing is, I never thought to dive deeper into these issues back then because they seemed like ‘normal’ things that most people walking through life dealt with. So instead, I left my issues on the back burner and moved on with life… until one day I found out that a fire had started and I didn’t even know.
