Hi, I'm Michelle Walker! A wife, teacher, mom of two and bonus mom to three more! I used to be the typical "busy working mom" and found myself living an unhealthy lifestyle even when I knew better.
I had always considered myself a pretty healthy person, and in 2009 when I found out I was pregnant I started really researching nutrition and the effects different foods were having on my body, so I would have the "optimal environment" to grow this little human.
When my kids were toddlers I looked for ways to make foods healthier, and used to bake a lot of toddler-friendly foods. My kids ate a very healthy diet, and I prided myself on the fact that they were getting a lot of amazing nutrition (and still some treats here and there of course) but as they got older, and I went back to working full time, life got busier and my energy was drained.
Certified Transformational Health & Life Coach,
Neuro Change Practitioner & Nutritionist
I was just too busy to cook healthy meals every night and even though I wanted my kids to keep their healthy eating habits as they got older, I still found myself getting home at supper time with nothing planned and throwing chicken fingers in the oven or making KD and hotdogs on a regular basis while telling myself, "I'll make something better tomorrow".
The poor eating habits were making me feel horrible and draining my energy even more and it was a vicious cycle, until I felt like I was just going through the motions day after day and not truly enjoying my life or being the mom that my kids deserved.
After changes in my professional career, I found I had more time to plan my meals and experiment with cooking, and take time for my health. I started changing small things with my habits and in the way I cooked and found strategies that I wished I had known when I was working as a teacher.
In 2020, I became a health & life coach and a neuro-change practitioner, so I could help others understand what keeps them stuck in old habits and help them to implement new, healthy habits.
I have made it my mission to help take the overwhelm and confusion out of getting healthy so busy moms can get healthy-ish while still juggling all that motherhood brings, and enjoy it at the same time!
So what do you say?
