Welcome to my blog, Healthy Vix, started on 14th January 2018.
My name is Victoria Sully and I’m a healthy mum of two. In 2013 I decided to return to vegetarianism. I’d already stopped smoking and drinking alcohol once pregnant at the end of 2011 and I decided not to return to these health destroying habits once my daughter Bella was born in 2012, but to instead continue on a healthier journey.
I’ve recently cut out dairy too and almost all junk food and processed food. I mostly enjoy an organic diet rich in plant based foods. Oh, I also cut out anything containing refined sugar in January 2017. So altogether I’m alcohol, sugar, meat and dairy free.
I’ve also become increasingly concerned about our planet and how my choices affect the environment around us. Choosing to eat organic is a part of this as it is not only for my own health, but for the good of the planet too. We have started making a few changes around our home making sure we are more eco friendly and living in a healthy home too.
Being healthy is the whole thing to me, not just what we eat. It’s a healthy home environment, healthy air, healthy food, healthy life and a healthy Earth.
I regularly go to the gym and love being active. I believe if you look good you feel good, and if you feel good you look good. It’s a good circle. Looking and feeling good comes with nourishing my body with the best quality foods and correct nutrients. I’m a big fan of superfoods and supplement my smoothies or take tablets such as camu camu and spirulina daily. Being fit and healthy is an obsession to me. It’s the best obsession you can have though in my opinion.
What we put in and on our bodies is so important. It affects our health not only now, but in the future. I want to safeguard my health by making the right choices today.
In 2013 I stopped buying my mainstream beauty products and started cutting out anything with parabens and SLS. I’d read a lot about parabens after noticing packaging said ‘paraben free’ and over the past few years I’ve gone completely natural with my beauty routine.
I love reading alternative news and I guess I could be labelled as ‘alternative’ for my food and shopping choices, but I kind of hate that term. To me all this ‘alternative’ stuff should be the norm. Since when did consuming and wearing chemicals become the norm and everything else become labelled as being different? It makes no sense to me.
I already have a UK lifestyle blog where I’ve been blogging since 2013 about all sorts of things including blogging, business, home, garden, family lifestyle, making money from home and also my eco friendly/healthy living passion. This blog is a new blog for me to only write about this side of my lifestyle as it’s what I am most passionate about.
My hubby Ben blogs too and you can find him at Wood Create.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my blog.
