Sheree's Health Diaries

I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t SHOCKED when I stepped on the scales after lockdown… I’m not normally a fan of the scales, in fact I don’t own any, but I was curious to see what changes my body had gone through after the first 8 weeks I was stuck in mandatory lockdown. 

With more stress, less time, longer days, less energy, more food, less weight training, I couldn’t be surprised with the fact that the scales had jumped up! 

In fact, coming out of LOCKDOWN 1.0 I was the BIGGEST I have ever been. 

I was even too scared to post this photo both here and on instagram because of how much I judged myself, and the fact that I had allowed myself to get my body to this state (even as a wellness coach). 




Don’t get me wrong, I believe in beauty in all shapes and sizes, but anyone who has been on a ‘weight loss’ journey will know there are times where you just feel UNCOMFORTABLE in your skin, no matter what size you are. 

For me, this wasn’t about the weight, it was about how much I had mistreated my body. The number on the scales was just a reflection of that

The toll that the stress had taken from this quarantine, had meant I had turned to food as a way of de-stressing and coping with my overwhelm and being overworked. 

Let me paint the picture for you, over lockdown I took on too many collaborations, LIVE trainings, clients and new projects, working 12 – 14 hour days, in amongst that trying to get in a workout, journaling, yoga, mediation, time with family/relationships, cooking EVERY MEAL, and managing to run my business.

There were days where I was literally so overwhelmed and stressed (and my cortisol was that high), that I would burst into tears in the middle of training. This was my first warning sign!

My whole lifestyle had changed, I was now behind a computer 95% of my day, making sure I did yoga daily as some effort to get myself calm and still keeping up ‘weight training’ with what little equipment I had 5 x a week. 

My poor body was in absolute shock! Whilst I was putting in a few methods and measures to make sure I didn’t completely shut down, my body needed something more to cope with the stress, and this is where the peanut butter cup ice cream came in.

I would, in all honesty, sit down, with a tub of ice cream at the end of each night and polish off at least half (if I decided to share it with my partner). My body was craving the carbs + sugar to nourish my worn out adrenals and energy. 

As a result, I got my body to an immense state of inflammation, hormones began to go in disarray, gut issues came back, not to mention my mindset was SHIT because how could I be a wellness coach, if I wasn’t even able to walk my own talk. 

This is where I became my client all over again!


Now in the shoes of where most of my clients come to me, I saw this as an opportunity to retest my methods, and RESET my body, aiming to be even stronger, healthier and happier than ever before. 

Again, this wasn’t about shifting the weight, but as you probably know, weight loss is often a byproduct of being healthy! 

I knew the necessary steps I had to take, and I’m really proud of myself, that this didn’t trigger a relapse for me, and bring back my need to induce vomiting. It also wasn’t ‘binge eating’, because I was consciously aware of what I was putting into my body, and how much, had complete control over it, I just wanted to eat it and knew it was serving me in the moment to get me through this stressful time! 

However, this FULL RESET was needed to get me back to my optimal health and well-being, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually! 

Our bodies are constantly changing, and adapting to what is around us, which is why it can be so damaging to our physical and mental health if we focus solely on the destination rather than the journey. 

The issue I see with a lot of diets and ‘fitness challenges’ out there, is that it isn’t sustainable. It’s more focused on what you can achieve in ‘X’ weeks, and then good luck from there… often with the hope you will fail, then need to do another one so they can make more money off you! 

And THIS is why I created RADIANCE RESET! A 4 Week Fast Track, designed to give you back the body you deserve to have! 

It didn’t take me long to get myself back into great habits, and heal, and RESET my body to a point where I was THRIVING again! So, I wanted to create something to show you just how easy it could be for you too! 

I know 2020 had the same effect on so many of us, maybe yours didn’t result in countless tubs of tip top peanut butter cup ice cream and tears, but I know for a fact, mental and physical health was impacted for many on a number of levels! 

I hope that my vulnerability, and honesty will allow you to see that even Wellness Coaches aren’t 100%, 100% of the time, but reaching your optimal health doesn’t have to be hard, or involve countless hours of cardio and calorie counting (these certainly aren’t the methods I used). I know this RESET and the RESULTS are possible for you too! 

It’s time to shine, it’s time to RESET and radiate your beautiful energy and light! (And we do so by taking care of our body and mind first!)
