I Can’t Stop Looking at this Picture!

yearin review

The other day I shared this blog post over on my other blog http://www.MaggiesVitmamins.Blog and had a lot of engagement when I shared it on FB so I thought it must be inspiring so I will share it on my main blog as well. So here it is 🙂

I love the FB memories thing, but today when it came up, I was in for a shocker!

Looking at this picture from one year ago today (picture on the left) prompted me to take the picture on the right (just today) to compare the two. This was really a vulnerable experience for me and I debated whether to share it or not, but here I am.

I am amazed at the difference I see. It made me reflect on the changes I have been making in my life. As many of you know, I made a decision to NOT buy into the “I’m getting older” model and to flip it around to “I’m getting younger all the time and it’s working” model. 🙂 🙂

I have also coined a phrase for myself and for my nutritional practice which is “Nutrition IS the Mission”, and I am feeling really, really, good about the results I am seeing not only in myself, but in my clients.

When I look at these two pictures I realize yes, I have lost a lot of weight, but what gets me excited the most is how nourished I look in the 2nd picture. The weight is secondary to me. My skin looks so much better and I can see and feel an entirely different energy in picture #2. The person in picture #2 is embracing her health and the ability to transform it, and it’s working and it’s showing.

For me though most important is the personal empowerment I feel from knowing that changes can and do make a difference and I know that if they work for me, they can work for others. This is exciting!!!!

I do not aspire to any trendy diet, but focus on more nutrition, Joy and just more… more of the good stuff… especially fruit. I am an advocate of more fruit in the diet and even potatoes. Potatoes were something I did not eat, but now that I ‘know’ how good they are for us, I enjoy them like crazy. I really enjoy the work of Anthony Williams, The Medical Medium, and have learned from him and his teachings and that has been hugely helpful.

Another thing I am focusing on is removing heavy metals from my body and helping others with this as well. By adding in more nutrients and removing pathogens and heavy metals, we can help to balance our bodies and they can run at a more optimal level. Our bodies are always trying to heal us and when we support them, well they love it and do a better job at it. 🙂

Anyhow thanks for reading along and I truly appreciate your support by being here.

I feel as though my entire life has prepared me for this time and I am looking forward to sharing all that I have learned through my own personal experience and my nutritional education. I am excited to continue improving my own life and in helping others on their journey to healthier lives using Nutrition as a catalyst to healing and to making positive change.

3 Questions to Ask Yourself this Week

foot-450378_1920

On fueling your body:

When putting food and drinks into your mouth, always ask the question “Is this feeding, fueling or healing my body?” If the answer is “No”, re-choose and think again.  The first step to making change is to question your actions. Are my actions serving me or causing me harm?

On listening  to your Body, Mind & Soul

Don’t assume that you are hungry for example. Use the HALT formula. Am I Hungry, Angry, Lonely or maybe even Tired? Often times we try to satiate our feelings by stuffing them down with food, drinks, cigarettes and other substances when that is not what our body or soul is looking for or needs! Ask questions and go within. Maybe you need a 5 minute power nap or decompression from a stressful situation. Even slipping off alone into the bathroom or another room and just focusing on your breathing can help to calm your para-sympathetic nervous system.

Does this bring me Joy?

No matter what you are doing, ask yourself does this person, place, food, event, book, or even a blog post 😊, bring me Joy or serve me for my highest good? Does it make me feel good? Does it enhance my life? Do I feel better or enlightened in a positive way after reading it? If Yes, full speed ahead. Learn to question everything you do to see if it is indeed serving you for the highest and best good. After awhile you will no longer need to question these things as they will become automatic. You will become proficient at making choices that have your best interest in mind.

By implementing some simple questioning, you can really get in tune with what is both healthy for you and what is important for you. Think of questioning as fine tuning and honing in on your well-being and most of all, have fun with it! 😊
