I’m Erica Nicole – A women in her thirties from the beautiful state New Hampshire. First look at me you might think I am a “girly girl”. Yes I like to look nice, get a manicure from time to time and wear makeup, but don’t judge a book by it’s cover! I LOVE being outdoors (bike riding, fishing, hiking…you name it!), don’t mind getting my hands dirty, attempting DIY home projects, and I’m very independent.
When I turned 30 in July of 2014 it hit me….I’m not so young anymore! I realized (after years of my chiropractor telling me) I only get one body, so I need to take care of it! I wanted to change my lifestyle for the better, but how? I started reading, going to seminars, and educating myself. In January, I actually started putting my knowledge to the test and pursing my goal of healthy clean living!
In the beginning it was adding more workouts, choosing more healthy options when eating, switching out harmful cleaning products for good ol’ vineagar and water and always trying to learn more. A great help to me was Jessica Alba’s book The Honest Life.
It is loaded with information and made me realize it doesn’t have to be so hard!
In February I attended a clean eating seminar by the amazing company Arbonne and completed their clean eating challenge.
I can honestly say it has changed my life! It eliminated my heartburn, my headaches, my carb and sugar cravings, and my fatigue. I truly feel my body is working to it’s full potential (when I don’t cheat)! Learning why to avoid certain foods and how they internally affect my body was the game changer for me! I want to eat whole foods that are going to support my body and it’s innate intelligence to take care of and heal itself instead of harming and overworking it by eating harmful toxins! I am still very much a work in progress, but I am starting this blog to keep me on track and to help others!
Clean living has been a big goal of mine, but not the only thing I will be sharing. I have goals to be an amazing Mommy and Fiance, be debt free, expand my knowledge with essential oils, live life to the fullest yet simply, and expand my business’.
I am enjoying this crazy ride through the journey of life and I wanted to share it with you to inspire and help you reach your goals. I also am open to tips from you and know this will keep me more accountable for my actions. I am very honest, live my life with a positive energy/outlook. I love to smile, spend time with family, friends, and animals. I want to take care of the environment, my body, and others. I love to read, exercise, learn, be outdoors, music and butterflies! If any of this interest you I’m your girl!
