SIGNS IT’S TIME FOR A DETOX
Check out last week’s video! Click here >>
You might know that I absolutely love talking to people about food/nutrition, and I’m known for getting all red in the face and chest when I get very excited and passionate about several topics, this one particularly!
Nutrition – or real food – are a huge part of how I became a holistic health coach several years ago, and I always give nutrition recommendations to my clients as a great starting point if you’re looking some “quick wins”.
I’ve tried so many diets (all very unsuccessful. The diets were I wasn’t) over the years, most of the time for me and it may be for you too, I was constantly felt like I was a hamster running the weight loss wheel and never seeing long-term results.
In this video, I’m going to give you four of the most popular diets and their dos and don’ts that can help you shift from feeling gross and negative about your body & health to feeling fabulous and deserving really quickly.
It’s never only about the food. Don’t get me wrong, food is extremely important to our overall health and goals. However, our internal relationship with food will make or break our ability to continue on the weight loss hamster wheel or finally have a consistent stress-free relationship with food.
Negative self-talk is one of the biggest sabotaging patterns I see in women who aren’t living their ideal life, and affirmations are one of the quickest (and cheapest) ways to turn things around.
Whenever you notice the negative thoughts come into play, you have the power to successfully interrupt the downward spiral before it causes drama in your life.
In past videos, we talk about the Top 3 Mindset Challenges when wanting to lose weight and/or change to a healthier lifestyle. Also, provided to you are , that may or may nor\t include some affirmations.
Do it enough, and you train your brain to manifest the health and body best for you!
I used to think I had to eat the “right” food or believed there was magic diet pill to lose the weight for good – which is weird I know, but I said it in my head I still continue to hear it from women all around me.
Your success and abundance will skyrocket when you get ok with being successful, just as you are. And realizing every BODY is different. Why do you think seem to lose weight faster than women or those native to tropical areas have trouble tolerating high-fat foods. Your body is different than my body, you metabolize certain foods differently than I may.
There are action step I’d like you to take action on TODAY.
If you have n’t heard the term “mindset challenges” before.
The concept of mindset challenges is strange because on the surface, why wouldn’t we want to have a successful mindset to accomplish our goals? It’s weird when you think about it.
How do you know if you have any mindset challenges? And what do you actually do about them? (Hint: there’s an free opportunity at the end of this.)
So if you’ve been feeling blocked or conflicted about weight and you don’t know why, today’s post will provide a great refresher for you.
Sometimes you just have to go back to basics.
It’s way easier to think that you can’t lose weight because of something outside of yourself. You know, things like the people around me tempt me, work drains my motivation, Mercury Retrograde, or any other random excuse.
Now, don’t get me wrong: there are external factors that can TOTALLY affect your losing weight potential. But believing that you can’t do anything about those factors and start losing weight is purely an inside job.
Just make sure that your “excuses” aren’t mindset challenges (spoiler alert: they totally are!)
Most people have a pretty similar mindset challenges. Honestly, you might think your situation is unique, but it’s probably not.
Here are some of the most common ones – see how many of them ring a bell for you:
Once you know your particular MINDSET CHALLENGE, you can keep an eye out for how it sabotages you.
*WHEN WE OPERATE FROM I AM NOT BROKEN YOU SPEED UP WEIGHT LOSS
Hey there beautiful!
I am so excited my heart is thumping. Today I am going to talk about Cellulite and I want to share a pod cast I heard today by host, Maddy Moon. She said and I quote, “I know for a fact that being a fitness model, meditative yogi, juice cleanse queen or a ripped G.I. Jane does not bring the happiness you are told about (Trust me, I’ve been all of those)”
While listening to her podcast “How to Stop Shaming Your Food Choices”, she made reference to one of her blog posts, “How Cellulite Saved My Life”. Her bravery and vulnerability inspired me to also be vulnerable with my followers and also to start a Self-Acceptance Challenge! Are you excited?!
Maddy posted a picture of her backside at a fitness model competition` and also a current picture of her backside and my mind went WOW! It dawned on me that having cellulite does not make her less of a person and the same goes for YOU and ME!
So, therefore, I am starting a challenge for everyone and anyone who puts the value on cellulite at the back of their legs. I am telling you, you are not alone and its presence does not take a bit out of your beauty. It doesn’t make you ugly and no one is a standard for your body. This challenge is an avenue to say thank you to the one person who has stuck through thick and thin with you, never minding what the world thinks!
So here is the challenge….. You get to post a picture of your legs showing your cellulite. Is it scary right? I Know! Absolutely fearful? Of course! But do not let this opportunity slip you by. This is a chance to support each other, a chance to shove love and most importantly, a chance to say thank you to our bodies and their cellulite!
I LOVE YOU!
How do I get healthy? How do I keep my skin free from diseases? How do I get back in shape? These are some of the questions that detoxification can address. Cleansing your body at least every year can help you obtain more energy as well as improve your overall health. We are all surrounded by various toxic substances. We use products that could seem harmful to our health, and we are exposed to various elements such as pollution, cigarette smoke, and UV rays.
HOW DO YOU START A DETOX?
First, lighten up your toxin load. Eliminate alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars, and saturated fats, all of which act as toxins in the body and are obstacles to your healing process. Also, minimize the use of chemical-based household cleaners and personal health care products (cleansers, shampoos, deodorants, and toothpaste), and substitute natural alternatives.
Now to help get rid of these toxins from your body, there are some detox cleansing methods that you can employ. These can help strengthen your immune system for healthier living.
Can’t watch. Instead, listen:
IONIC FOOT BATH
The Ionic Foot Bath is a detox water bath that cleanses, balances and enhances the bio-energy present in the body. It is basically used to increase energy (both physical and mental), vitality and stamina, at the same time, it purges (detoxifies) the body of toxins, chemicals, radiation, pollution, synthetics, and other foreign materials trapped in the tissues of the body that hinders the body’s self-cleansing mechanism. This internal cleansing includes parasite cleansing and liver detoxification, which results in less body fluid retention, reduced inflammation, improved memory, greater bladder control, a more balanced pH, a stronger immune and significant pain relief, including headaches, gout, and arthritis pain. This body cleansing process results in the correct frequency required for the body cells to return to a healthy state, and to release wastes that have been bonded to them over the years. In general, our body will feel lighter after the first session. We will think more clearly, have more energy and enjoy a greater sense of well-being.
Everyone enjoys having a massage, with the relaxation and tension relief it brings. Body Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, including the skin, tendons, muscles and connective tissue by a professional, for relaxation or to enhance the body’s healing capability. Body massage causes chemicals to be released into the body, which brings toxins out of your muscles. Furthermore, body massage has also been found to help the substance lymph move around, which assists in getting rid of toxins from tissues in your body.
HIMALAYAN SALT BATH
Himalayan salt is one of the purest, uncontaminated salts that are as old as the earth. Himalayan salts provide benefits when taken in a salt bath. Think of the Himalayan salt bath as a bath for the inside of your body, where it draws toxins out from the entire digestive tract. When you imagine all of the waste products trapped in your digestive system — not unlike the slime and build-up that accumulates inside a garden hose or household pipes — it makes good sense that your insides benefit from a proper washing. This mechanism is a highly effective way to expel detoxifies your body naturally of toxins and waste. From this bath, you will have better digestion, increased energy, feel like a fresher you, and even weight loss.
Sauna benefit remains a positive influence on your health that has been proven by sound medical research worldwide. With an infrared sauna, the benefit goes far, far beyond relaxation. Infrared sauna benefits are much-needed in our hectic, rapid-fire society. As the body warms throughout, the heat relaxes your muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and oxygen and nutrients are delivered to tissues that are not that well supplied at other times.
It’s much easier to prevent toxification and maintain a healthy body than attempt to clean up damage that’s already been done. As in life, being proactive beats being reactive by a long shot. A holistic way of detoxing your body also involves your thought, which is your mind. Your mind is very powerful. It can help you heal every disease in your body. But it can also contribute to the contrary if you give it the power to do so. It depends on the quality of your thoughts. The more positive they are, the better you will feel.
