I'm ready to eat, think and feel my way to thyroid health and greater joy.

You got the power. Start owning it.

When is the last time you blamed someone else instead of taking a look inside?

I vividly remember doing that when I was in the early stages of healing my thyroid/autoimmune condition. Looking at my doctor like he was the devil because I was not further along in my healing process. Fortunately, thanks to his awesome ways, he called me out and said he couldn’t do it alone…. I need to contribute to my own healing process.

Um… what??? You mean criticizing my body for being inflamed and being angry at it for being sick wasn’t helping???

How I Quit Sugar

Last week I started sharing my journey of quitting sugar, and as promised here is part two. Without the information I’m sharing today, I don’t think I would have been able to survive the detox period or sustained the change. As I mentioned last week, quitting sugar gets effortless over time, but at first it’s pretty tough and requires some serious “muscles.” ☺

You can use this information to quit any kind of food. I’m talking about sugar because for me it was by far the hardest food to quit. I do believe what the experts say – that sugar is addictive. Per my Doctor’s recommendation I also quit grains and dairy while healing my Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, and neither of them were as physically or emotionally challenging as sugar was.

Here’s how I did it:

Celebrating 6 Months off Sugar

This month I’m celebrating six months off of sugar, and after getting a lot of questions about it, I’m ready to share my journey with you! I’ve split this into two blogs (one today and one you’ll get next Tuesday). Should you want to learn even more than what I cover in the two blogs, you’ll see a workshop invite below.

Before I share more, let me say that quitting sugar isn’t for everyone, and although I do believe cutting back on sugar would benefit everyone, I am definitely not a sugar shamer. It’s a personal decision between you and your body that requires a massive level of commitment (especially at first).

We’re halfway around the sun!

We’re officially past the halfway mark of 2017, which makes this the perfect time of year to check in and see how the year is shaping up for you. To celebrate your wins, observe any blocks, and hit the release or reframe button if need be.

According to numerology, this year equals the number one (2+0+1+7 = 10 and 10 = 1), which means a brand spanking new start energetically. While that can be an amazing feeling, it can also result in some nudges from the Universe to heal and release that which isn’t serving us. Even if it feels like a struggle, it’s actually an invitation to up-level and eventually feel better and achieve greater results.

Master the Worthy Girl Mindset

Many outwardly successful, bright, beautiful women have a secret. Despite external appearances, they don’t feel good enough. That drives many of us to be overachievers, perfectionists, overly responsible, burnt out and more.

Living life this way creates internal pressure and stress. Because when our worth depends on external validation, we are only good enough when we are succeeding. It’s a joy-sucking cycle.

So let’s talk about how we can change that…

Heart opener playlist

Today is the first day of summer, and we only have a couple of days left in Gemini season before we move into Cancer! Gemini is an air sign, which is connected to our lungs (anxiety) and heart (joy)!

This playlist I’m sharing below has definitely brought me joy over the last week, and I wanted to share it with you too. Each of the songs are uplifting and most use mantras that are directly connected to opening the heart center. And of course, you can still use it when we move into Cancer (water element).

Boost your joy in 30 seconds or less

I want to share with you an awesome tool from Wild Light Warrior…because it’s so simple and quick, but also effective. Try it at least once! ☺  I discovered it kind of randomly.  It all started one night before bed. I felt excited and recommitted to using positive affirmations while reading a book.

The next morning, as I was starting to wake up, this voice inside of me went on a 30 second positive affirmation spree, which I now call a Shine Spree. Because I literally felt an extra burst of happiness throughout the day. Like I was shining and glowing all day, despite what circumstances popped up. There’s only one trick to it…

The Burden of Trying to Be Balanced

Seriously ladies, balance is a self-defeating concept that continues to elude (even torture?) women around the globe. I even believe it chips away at our self-esteem and our sense of worthiness (more on that in a moment). Today I’m encouraging you to get off the balance bandwagon >>> ditch any associated guilt trips >>> and try something else instead.

Balance has become one of those concepts we use to measure how well we’re handling life.  (We may even equate balance to giving 100% to all areas of our lives?) Regardless, we don’t live in a balanced society. The nature of our lifestyles, whether you’re a stay at home mama or a boss lady (or both), pretty much guarantees a lack of balance. We’re basically set up for failure. So why do we idealize balance, and what can we do instead?

Not feeling good enough? Try this…

Today I want to give you a taste of my secret sauce for overcoming moments of feeling like you’re not good enough. Obviously feeling unworthy is something that affects all of us, some more than others, but did ya know that it actually affects highly successful people as much if not more than the average Jane? Yup, it’s true.

Because for some of us (ahem, moi), we developed a pattern of striving for outward success to compensate for what we felt was lacking internally. Which on one hand is pretty cool – go us – we didn’t just sit on our butts and do nothing. On the other hand, it’s not so bueno because it leads to a constant cycle of joy sucking and exhaustion. If a key pillar of our worth is based on success, then we are fulfilled only when we’re winning, achieving, succeeding. Make sense?

So, here’s a few ways I’ve learned to deal with the “unworthies” (as I call them) when they come knocking…
