The name is Nicki and the brand Revived Lotus is the love child of my passion of helping others and leading a healthy lifestyle.
In the tail end of 2012 I was inspired by a YouTuber whose hair was absolutely amazing. Desiring similar results for myself my hair journey was born.
In preparation research suggested that I need to stimulate growth and this can be done through exercise and alas my fitness journey had begun.
Working out…me? Now this had taken me by surprise
Don’t get me wrong I dabbled in fitness tried out kickboxing, aerobics, Pilates attending the gym every week or 2 treadmilling it out.
However the more educated I became my ideology of long hair slim waist slowly became a thought which no longer served as my motivation.
As I came to the realisation there was a bigger issue here. My lifestyle!
To be completely honest with you I didn’t realise my weight gain over the previous months because frankly I was in a better place. Having had 2 major life changing events I was happy to be rested and stress free.
Starting out my health journey I ate whatever I chose just smaller portions and too feel healthy a good ‘ole’ salad would do the trick.
Never had the foggiest about how processed foods aren’t even REAL foods or in fact contain very little real food ingredients.
Like most who haven’t a clue about the gym I started on the treadmill and worked my way through similar machines lived and died by the same pace, no incline, calorie counting method.
Eventually I added classes into my mix.
During the year I discovered another aspect to the gym a community by the time you get talking to the right people it evolves!
Discovering healthy foods, different exercises, free-weights and Instagram I was well on my way to progress.
Really look forward to sharing with you what’s helped me along my journey.
