Wow! I finally did it! What you may be asking? Well, perhaps I should start at the beginning.
My name is Daisy Sutherland and for as long as I can remember I have wanted to help people. So, I went to school and combined my love for the sciences and my love of helping people and achieved my Bachelor’s in Science. However, that was not enough, so I continued my studies and found a way to combine my love of natural healing and natural living with that of sciences and helping others and became a Doctor of Chiropractic.
It was in Chiropractic school that my life changed! After a year at Chiropractic school I met the man who would not only become my husband and partner for life but also the father to our children. This is truly AH-mazing because my intentions when entering Chiropractic school were tunnel visioned to becoming a Doctor and nothing else.
Well, apparently God had different plans for me and those plans were quite different. When I graduated Chiropractic school, not only was I married to my soul mate but I had a 2 year-old and pregnant with child #2!!
Not sure how I accomplished being a mom and a full time Chiropractic student but I did it and never looked back.
The goal now was to open a Chiropractic office with my husband and live the dream I had of helping people live healthier lifestyles. Again, my plans were changed! Thankfully my hubby was already living his dream of being a Chiropractor, because once again God had different plans for me. What plans? That of being a full-time mom and homeschooler.
Yes! Can you believe it!! Not only was this lifestyle the complete opposite of what my plans had been but in the end, we ended up having not 1, not 2 but 5 children in total and homeschooled each and every one of them! Yes, we have graduated 3 children and have 2 to go!! WooHoo!! And if that was not enough, we also have a grand baby who is blessing our lives more and more each day!!
So, you may be wondering how and when my online world began. Well, my love of helping people has never wavered. And because of that love, I found a way to not only stay home with our family and help manage our Chiropractic office but to also help people all over the world live and lead happier and healthier lifestyles.
All this was possible with the birth of Dr. Mommy in 2007. She helped me connect with different communities online and friends that I can now call life long friends. Dr. Mommy opened an entirely new world for me and I am so very thankful for her. With the help from Dr. Mommy, I wrote several books, had the opportunity to share my mission on national television several times, shared my mission to many via stages and conferences and had an incredible radio show for over two years! But honestly, Dr. Mommy could not have existed without me and my love of helping others. And although she will always be a part of my life, I have been able to shed that alter ego and embrace who I truly am.
That is how Wholistic Fit Living came about. Wholisitic is a play on the word – holistic. Holistic encompasses everything I do, taking care of the ‘whole’ person, body, mind and spirit. And ‘fit’ is something that we all must incorporate into our daily lives no matter how ‘busy’ you may or may not be. Staying physically fit is necessary for your body to work at it’s optimum level; and isn’t that what we all strive to do? Live life to the fullest and most optimum levels?
Speaking of ‘fit‘..the year 2014 was my year of Transformation. My goal was to not only transform my online presence and shed my alter ego but to also change my outward appearance. Although I have been physically active most of my life, it’s truly AH-mazing what getting ‘comfortable’ will do and I can give a million excuses like: no time, not enough hours in the day to work out, too many children, too many responsibilities, etc. But those would simply be excuses and I had to run from those excuses and prove to not only myself but to others that a transformation is truly possible if you apply yourself, make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. Notice how I mentioned commitment to yourself? Yep..for too long I was committing to others and neglecting myself and I mentor others about that very thing!! My ‘aha’ moment occurred and I made a change. Check out my photo below and you will notice a change and if you need help…I’m here to help you achieve a transformation in your life too!!
My hope is that when you visit my home here on the internet you will learn how to lead a happier and healthier lifestyle with the information provided here.
So, if that was not enough here’s a bit more about me:
- Fitness Fanatic
- Yes, I’m a vegan..was a vegetarian for most of my life and now a vegan for 4+ years and counting…
- Embracing the 50’s and loving it!
The mission continues: Helping Busy Moms and Busy Families Achieve Happier and Healthier Lifestyles
