In 90 days you can begin to grow a little person inside of you, to the point where you can see a visible image during a scan, not only that but you can also see how many little people you’re growing inside of you.
I found out I was having twins at an emergency scan just before my 12 week scan, the doctors were worried I was having an ectopic pregnancy due to pains in my abdomen. They were in fact just stretching pains making room for two cheeky monkeys!
It took another three months to find out they were breech and transverse (higledey pigledey!) and I didn’t make it to the end of the last three months as they just got too big my body couldn’t handle them anymore, born at 35 weeks weighing 6.1lbs and 5.11lbs the biggest babies in Special Care, let alone the biggest set of twins!!!
The first 90 days of their little lives were firstly spent in hospital, for an aching 16 days away from Nathaniel, but then spent with my three little lads and me coping with getting to grips in the next chapter of our lives. By the time they were three months old I had managed to get them into a solid bed time routine and although I was (and still am) up every three hours feeding them, I had my evenings back and the horrible colic stage was over.
I suddenly went from having no spare time and constantly having a baby attached to me to having a little bit of free time each night. At this point I was also looking for a way to swift the twin weight! One of my lovely friends, Gemma Edens, had been posting her weight loss progress and the meals she was eating looked amazing, real food and losing weight!? I have to say I was a doubter to begin with!
After having a chat with her about the plans and what would be best for me, she offered me a job opportunity within her team, working from home and in my own hours. I was interested as I was starting to get sick of my own company in the evenings and I like to keep busy! However, I said I wanted to see how I went on the plan and see if I liked it. I lost 5lbs in my first week of detox and couldn’t believe the change, I was hooked. If I could eat this much healthy food that was not only good for me but that I could also lose weight while eating, then it was definitely something I wanted to share with others! I joined the day I weighed in, a £50 investment that would change my life.
I’m just about to hit the end of my first 90 days in the business, Nathaniel’s just turned 21 months and the twins will be 6 months on the 4th. The last 3 months I have built my own business from home on my iPhone/iPad around watching my boys growing, playing, making a mess, screaming, all the normal mummy baby things. Having had to rely on income support to keep my family a float, I have now been able to “close my account” as they like to phrase it!
I have over 50 lovely customers, I’ve just hit my third promotion in three months to Sales Coordinator and now have a team of 11 strong. The past weekend I have been at an inspiring conference, “The 90 Day Game Plan” listening to inspiring people map out the next 90 days for myself and the rest of my team, to hit National Marketing Directors of our own franchises!
90 days on with a total of 21lbs weight loss, hitting three promotions, building a team, running the house hold and looking after my gorgeous boys…I am very excited to see where the next 90 days will take us!
And it all kicks off with my first proper event on the 5th July in the Blue Boar in Witney from 2pm, if you’re local come along and here more about my journey so far.
I’ll see you there…
