never follow a diet again

In the past year I’ve tried a lot of diets 😅
vegan, paleo, iifym, clean eating, vegetarian…

But do you know what I realized
NONE of them did? 🤨

me mindset
Stop the restriction mindset.

And of course, my way of dealing with that restriction once I was done with that plan was to EAT ALL THE THINGS I “couldn’t have” while I was following it.

Up until last year I would never follow a meal plan that went along with my program because I knew something about myself. I knew if I told myself I “couldn’t have chocolate or cake, or chips” that I would immediately binge on those exact things because I wouldn’t stop thinking about them the moment I said I couldn’t have them. The whole reason behind me dieting started last year because I hated my body. I was working out religiously and wanted to lose weight and see my abs so I thought I should be strict with my food. Well, honestly it worked for a while 🤷‍♀️ my abs started to pop and I was leaner than I’d been since my 20’s so everything seemed to be worth it.

UNTIL I COULDN’T DO IT ANYMORE.

The past month all of a sudden everything became an issue. I was getting anxiety around food, I was obsessed with everything about my body, I never felt like I was doing enough, and I avoided situations where I wouldn’t be in control of what foods I was eating.

I can remember being 12 and binge eating ice cream in the freezer because I was depressed about my body compared to my naturally thin best friend.

I can remember being 8 and coping with having to stay at home alone a lot by eating 3 gigantic bowls of sugary cereal at a time.

I can remember 2 months ago inhaling half a bag of Trader Joe’s macadamia nuts because I just couldn’t stop.

DIETING DOESN’T FIX THOSE ISSUES.

But you 100% CAN fix them, you just have to find your happy balance. 😌💜 Why? Because when you start realizing what you need to do to stop restricting in the first place 👉🏼 you can heal yourself (the WHOLE PERSON) and not just the food.

So I reflected on the things that helped me take my own wellness back. And researched (AND FOUND) the framework for the ✨FREE 2B NEW MINDSET FOOD HACK✨ Challenge.

The idea is not to do one thing perfectly – like eat the most “clean,” perfect diet – but rather to take care of yourself and looking after your physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual health.

Right this minute you can find the four guiding principles to true food freedom:

a breakthrough approach to weightloss,

a new way to look at food groups,

and start LOSING WEIGHT NOW!

And how to frame what you eat going forward so you never have to follow a diet again!

What does your Sunday Self Care Look Like?

Self care is 🙌🏻. I rocked my charcoal mask yesterday and had “girltime”. 😍❤️
.
Self care doesn’t have to be fancy. It doesn’t have to be perfect ambiance or even cost a lot of money. But …. it is so so so key.

Gosh, I remember my Sunday nights did not look like this a few years back. Or feel like this.
.
Rewind two years ago, and we would be gearing up for being passing ships in sea, week after week. Tom going one direction all over southern California with any where from one to three nights away a lot of the weeks and I the opposite direction working long nights.

Thankful for this time. Thankful for being able to curate our life, our business, and moments like this, in a very different way.

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 17

Wow!? Who am I!? It’s been sooooo Hard for me to get up before starting this detox and here I am bouncing out of bed before my alarm. No blurry eyed creep to the kitchen to fire up my tea cup and I’m diving into paint projects before I wake the boys up from school!?!?! What in the heck!?!

I had no idea sleeping soundly would be such an amazing benefit to this 21 days and honestly might make even my worst food day worth it!! As a mom we never expect to get a good nights sleep because even if the kids don’t wake us up we still listen for every noise, whisper, thud, and breath. But I am KNOCKED OUT at night and ready to wake up when or before my alarm goes off. There is so much beauty in waking up refreshed I had no clue what I was missing!!!

Here’s the Skinny on Day 17:

Wake up w/20 oz of distilled water (Mineralize added) and continue drinking this ALL day just not until 30 mins after a meal for digestion purposes!

Take Supplements (Optimize & Revitalize)

Wait 30 Minutes

Breakfast – 3 cups of fresh fruit (I blended a cup of mango into my Shako)

Wait at least 2 hours. (I waited 3)

Take Supplements again

Wait 30 min

Lunch – called for Morracan Carrot Salad with 3 cups of greens (not pictured – still steaming) and it just wasn’t in me to make it so I roasted some asparagus and steamed the carrots it called for and called it good. I’m usually great at meal prep but this final leg of the cleanse I’m not super excited about it.

Wait at least 2 hours (I waited 3)

Take your power greens

Wait 30 minutes

Optional Snack – I used my oil allowance from lunch to mix up this beauty. 1 Tbsp of coconut oil and 1 Tbsp of Shako vegan chocolate then 5 mins in the freezer and this was worth it!!!

Wait 2 hours

Take Supplements (Optimize, Revitalize & Soothe)

Wait 30 min

Dinner – again. Food fail because I just wasn’t into what was called for so I made a 1/2 sweet potato with mixed veggies (zucchini, broccoli, red pepper, and asparagus)

I think what’s awesome about this plan is how easily you just revert to fruits or veggies with no desire to cheat. I could have easily eaten the steak the kids were eating but other than it smelling good I had no desire to eat it.

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – What is it?

If you’ve tried everything else like me or maybe you just want to feel more energy we should be talking about this! I have a wave of babes starting Monday right after Thanksgiving! We are doing this during the hardest time of the year and won’t even be sweating any New Years resolutions!!

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 16

Wanna get a kick in your step without the superpowers of caffeine? I’m learning a lot during this 21 days and had NO IDEA I could live without something as sacred as coffee but here I am day 16 no caffeine!! 🤯 I add 1 Tbsp. in 4 ounces of distilled water with a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of pink Himalayan salt first thing in the morning. SOOO great for energy! + it’s said that it can help with weight loss (increases metabolism) and tons of other shit like balancing your bodies PH. You can drink it 3x a day before meals to benefit energy all day + good metabolism. 🥂 BE A FRIEND and share this great tip with a friend toooo or Pin to your fave healthy girl Pinterest board!

I was stoked to update my phone and see all the new fun to be had with new emojis!!!

It’s my BIRTHDAY MONTH!! Where my scorpios at!!? Scorpio is exotic and magnetic, as deep as the sea, and, depending on our mood, as calm or as tempestuous.

♏️

Scorpio likes clear endings and beginnings, with no grey areas in between.

♏️

Scorpio tends to be possessive of their loved ones and also find it extremely difficult to trust people and are therefore very secretive.

♏️

We are lovers AND fighters depending on which side of ours you’re on. We will will take secrets to grave unless we are driven to do otherwise, or unless we think you’ve wronged us.

♏️

We are intuitive AF. We know something’s going to happen before it does and can easily read people .

♏️

We tend to be self-destructive because we are fearless and stubborn even when life gets a little tricky. We’ll take one to the chin and keep going.

♏️

Self-confident, resourceful, and strong. Where my scorpios at? 🎂🍾🎉Happy Birthday, boo ❤

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 15

I’ve been feeling really down the past couple days! Nothing awful. Just like “meh” so a day of hair and brows (and let’s be honest… mustache manicuring hehehehhe!!) and I feel good as new!!! Turning 43 has me feeling all sorts of ways and through this cleanse as I’m emotionally unloading a ton of blocks I feel lighter and less stressed than I have in YEARS!

Dinner Mash up! I’ve been mixing my dinners together in a bowl still. It tastes way better to me! It called for a baked sweet potato & garlic veggies. Here’s the recipe:

Baked Sweet Potato – 1 serving

1 medium sweet potato or yam

1 tsp. olive oil

1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Scrub potato; pierce several times with a fork and place on center rack. (My note – place a foiled lined cookie sheet under on the next rack to catch drippings) Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until fork tender. Remove from the over and cut a 1 1/2 inch cross in the center of the potato. Season with oil, salt, and a seasoning blend if desired.

Garlic Veggies – 1 serving (I doubled this so I could eat it tomorrow)

2 tsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. water

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 1/2 tsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos, to taste

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 medium carrot, cut into thin diagonal slices

1/2 medium head broccoli, cut into bite sized florets

1/2 medium zuchinni, cut lengthwise then sliced

1/4 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch strips
