HI – I’m back! Finally – . I know we come out with a few rad blogs delivering great content and then we take a mini hiatus. As many of you may know we temporarily relocated to Mexico. Needing time to really go over the vision of Wealth Unchained and the direction and how we could deliver the best most raw and honest content about living out side of the messed up box we are pushed into. Right now I am blogging pool side in Playa del Carmen – soaking the sun and reflecting on all things Wealth Unchained & The Johnsons. I tell you the ocean – sun and some hot weather is exactly what the spirit needed.
I’m going to introduce to you a NEW – Uncensored section to my posts that’s going to include Health. I know WTF does that have to with living unchained, freedom or more money. Here’s the thing no matter how much money or success you have if you do not have your health or self love — things are no fun.
How many activities and fun things are people missing due to obesity or health related problems — rides at Disney, zip lining in Costa Rica, sky diving in Vegas – climbing the steps of ancient ruins in Mexico, even just being comfortable in a airplane seat or in ones own skin.
Or how many of us are struggling with that internal voice in our head – that we are just not good enough. The constant chatter slowly diving us into the shadows of who we truly are.
What are we missing out on? All because we are unhappy in our own skin.
My personal struggles involves creating balance in our diets, workouts and body image. I originally never noticed my obsession as a problem or something I should be concerned, especially because it’s never been to a lack of eating or over training..but when it started to affect my relationships, my happiness I definitely new I needed to change. Being honest about my thoughts has been extremely liberating.
Here is my very public post about my own struggles since competing in a bikini competition just over 1.5yrs ago. That post became one of my most commented and read posts of the year

Here are a few of the comments. There was 100s between Comments and private messages it was overwhelming and I wish I could post all of them. I have stashed the love and support to my desk top images!
My husband and I travel a ALL THE FREAKING TIME! The need to find a lifestyle — yes I want to be very clear this is not a pitch you some bullshit DIET program or workout. My intent among many is to find a Lifestyle that works for me. It may not work for you due to various reasons and that is okay – tweek – adjust – research and do what ever you need to do for YOU. I do promise to provide sources I use to make decisions for you. I also personally need an outlet to share and express where I am at. I pride myself on honesty and being transparent so this process is very liberating for me.
Here is a list of a few places I have been doing my research from currently:

If for any reason you can relate to me. Struggling with food, obsessions, eating, not eating, limiting belief. I strongly urge you to stay connected. To reach out to a mentor, councillor, friend or pick up a book or podcast to help you get your mind in a new space. It is never to late to make a CHOICE to start living a more fulfilling and happy life.
