Follow what lights you up.

From the outside looking in I imagine it looks easy. I just show up and share my food, mindset or spirituality stuff, and perhaps a blog post. The thought behind my blogs comes across and the feedback is people like what I have to say. In the past couple of weeks I’ve had 3 separate…

Power of stopping.

I recently had to complete an assignment for Primal Health Coach Training that involved getting together via video chat and coaching other students in the program. I desperately didn’t want to do the assignment. It’s one thing coaching people who haven’t been given the same material as you, but coaching peers feels like a whole…

Don’t let your beliefs get in the way.

Being stuck to anything dogmatically will hold you back. Your beliefs around anything can and will change. When we get so tied to an idea that we can’t change that’s when we know our growth is stagnant. This goes for any way of eating including keto and fasting! (I’ve yet to see a time where…

The balance of mind, body, and soul.

August was an interesting month for me. There was a lot of internal work. Situations arose that gave me the choice of continuing to run or face it. I chose to face it. This meant there were many moments where I was hella uncomfortable, anxiety ridden, and pretty emotional. How I show up in relationships…

Carrying awareness through the day.

When you start a journey of healing, growth, and love it often times involves sitting on a meditation cushion every morning. Starting the day with a routine that allows you to connect to yourself. I was recently reading my coach’s book and she mentioned at one point in her journey that her self care had…

Zoom out…

I hate pictures other people take of me. Might seem crazy since I post a lot of pictures of myself but I get to control everything from how I’m posing to the angle. When I’m having fun and someone else is taking the pics it’s out of my control. It’s been an intense week of…

The measure of success

What does success mean to you? If we look around at others and judge ourselves by what we see of them we can really view ourselves as a failure. I watched an episode of Queer Eye where the guy said he felt like a failure when he compared himself to his siblings. He just ran…

What can you exclude?

Making healthy choices often boils down to what you exclude from your diet, not what you add. I’ve been adding new things lately (such as organs!) and that can look intense and like too much to some people. However, I’ve already done the work of excluding unhealthy things or things that simply don’t work for…

Carnivore

Being in the paleo/low carb world for almost 10 years now I’ve seen zero-carb or carnivore pop up from time to time. It seemed like a joke! Meat only? Talk about nutritional deficiencies. However, in the past year I’ve seen carnivore and more specifically nose-to-tail carnivore coming up a lot! And quite a few people…

What if I just let go?

What if I let go of any attachment to body fat. To what I make that mean about me. To judging myself for that. I’d say that 70-80% of the time I’m content and happy with my body. I have spent many many hours obsessing over what I’m eating and how my body will react….
