What do you want?

Today isn’t about food…..lol….

Today is about inner growth…reflection!

And maybe for you that inner growth and reflection is about food….about your body?

So even though these questions are something I’ve been really journaling about with my own life journey goals and desires maybe just maybe it can be for you when it comes to food….

What do you want want from food?
What does it look like?
And how will you feel when you make that food choice?

Or with your body…..

What do you want want from your body?
What does that look like?
And how will that feel once you truly love your body…as it is now?!

Blessings and hugs,

300 Swings!

I started a 300 kettlebell swings challenge this week!

The goal is to accomplish 300 swings in a workout session within the month. You can break them up as much as you want.

Knowing I was not new to kettlebell swings I can pretty easily do 100 in a workout I decided that from the get go I was going to do 300 right off the bat. And the challenge would be how many breaks would I have to make.

Today I did 5 sets of 60 swings with jumping jacks between.

Let me tell you why I love kettlebells…..

The very top reason for me is I receive very minimal inflammation in the sore days with kettlebells. And the soreness is very little for me…..even when I go heavy…..heavy for me is a 30-35 pound kettlebell. And that very rarely and not for my swings…

Back on track and my point…..when you deal with regular inflammation….and all autoimmune conditions have some degree of inflammation….if you think about it, it’s the body reacting to something…..ie getting inflamed…..

I love working out but I despise hurting…..it use to not be a big deal to me….but the more I learn to honor my body the more I realize that silly motto of “no pain no gain” just isn’t true!

I can gain strength…..
I can gain muscle….
I can gain health…..

WithOUT pain!

But here is the thing ladies just because I love kettlebells doesn’t mean it is for everyone.

Find the exercise and movement that will encourage you to gain strength and confidence and not feel pain!

We are more than our physical body!!!

Something has been perplexing me recently.

The mixed messaging that some influential women and loving the skin we are in!

It is summer time and I get it….influencers….wellness coaches…..and others…..want to encourage women as they share and show pictures of their health goals……but what do our physical changes have really to do with our true health changes?!

I was just sharing the other week in class about how the scale doesn’t tell us if we are having gut issues…..inflammation….brain fog….sleep problems…..

All the same scale tells us is a number! Heck it doesn’t even tell us if we lost much earned muscle mass or gained body fat because we are yo-yo-ing all in hopes to get to a number!!!

And the “new” fit body we share on social media…..all it says to our subconscious is we weren’t good enough before……

And worse it tells others it’s okay to comment on your physical body…..to objectify your…..rather than valuing you for your WHOLE person!!!

Be the change….the influence…..and lift other women up without a physical focus!

Baptized by water….

Water….

So pure….so restoring….so revitalizing!

Our bodies need water to function but our soul and our spirit needs it as well!

Think about it….we are baptized by water…..Jesus walked on water……

It’s forever changing and moving. Sometimes fast….sometimes slow….sometimes still….yet it eventually moves again!

Here is a fun twist on how to ensure you’re taking in your bodies daily dose of water….

Every time you take a drink imagine it washing out all that negative junk you think about yourself. It’s cleansing your thoughts…restoring your mind heart and soul…..

It is detoxing your thoughts and transforming them to remember how beautifully wonderfully made you are!!!

How is that for making sure you take in your daily water!?!

Thoughtful Thursday: Before & After Pictures

I’ve been seeing soooo many before and after pictures recently on social media!

And I know why….it’s summer time and we are obsessed with obtaining that “perfect” body!

But we aren’t connecting with our soul when we do this!

What is the “drug” we are getting from it?
I’m serious!
How is it truly serving us?!

Does it truly reflect our health?!

Does it mean we are sleeping better…
Does it mean our gut is healthy…
Does it mean we have no aches and pains…..
Does it mean we stop bullying ourselves in the mirror…..

NO!

All it says is “look at me PHYSICALLY”…..don’t get to know my mind, my heart, my soul…..just get to know my body……

This then creates your own mental chatter because it pigeon holes you into only being a body…..and you are sooo much more than your body!

Yes we are to honor this temple but ripped abs might not be the way to honor this temple!

Being comfortable in your own skin and loving who you are inside and out is honoring this temple!

So next time you go to post a before and after picture…..anything that is just focusing on your physical appearance…..think, “Does this really reflect my whole health? What benefit am I getting from this?”

Here is to another thoughtful Thursday!
Hugs and blessings always!

What are you afraid of?

What are you afraid of the most?

I have been witnessing FEAR for over a year now.

I will be honest it has been difficult for me to watch.

What we don’t understand is that when we allow the emotion of FEAR to consume us it WILL effect our PHYSICAL health.

Thus becoming the self-fulfilling prophecy we have feared all along.

Instead today I challenge you to read the reflection that Bishop Barron has on today’s Gospel with a different light!

JOHN 14:27–31A

“Friends, in today’s Gospel, Jesus gives us an antidote for fear. Who or what are you afraid of? That is a very important spiritual question. One way to understand our lives is to look at those things that we seek: wealth, power, privilege, honor, pleasure, friendship. But another way is to turn that question around and determine what or who it is that we fear.We might fear the loss of material things, the loss of a job, the loss of physical health, the loss of the esteem of others, the loss of personal intimacy, or ultimately, the loss of life itself. We are afraid of many things, but I’d be willing to bet that there is a primary or principal fear. What is it for you?Now, after identifying that, listen to Jesus: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.” Any and all of the things that we customarily fear—loss of money, fame, pleasure, and power—have to do with this world. What Jesus is saying is that we should not let those fears come to dominate or define our lives, for he is with us—and with him is his peace.”

IT’S BEEN AWHILE

It has been a while since I have hopped on and sent you an update….a tip….a video…I APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE!!!


These last 14-16 months have been a whirlwind of new….change…growing pains….and yet sooo much beauty.
Having partnered up with Christina Sessums of Purely Simple Organic Living, who is a Doctor of Naturopathy, has been amazing yet lots of learning curves in what all it entails to work with an ND. Which has pulled me away from many of the different consistent practices I had put into place for just the Oils Education part of my coaching practice. I have missed bringing you weekly videos/facebook lives, tips, blog posts and so much more.

BUT…..I have gained so much more knowledge, education, and tools to better serve and support each and every platform and client!


So what I wanted to share with you today is that weekly videos and/or Facebook lives will be coming back in May!!!


Some changes you are going to notice is that my coaching and education practice isn’t going to be centered on just Essential Oils.


I still find Essential Oils are an amazingly valuable tool and support to have for your whole health (mind, body, soul, spirit)…..but it is not the only tool.….which if you have ever attended any of my workshops in the past you knew that I didn’t just focus on Essential Oils…..it was the vehicle to help support the message of whole health!


Now I STILL feel the quality is VITAL and I DO STILL BELIEVE DOTERRA is the best….lol….so I WILL CONTINUE the Essential Oil Support, education,  private Facebook Group, and tribe… exclusively with me…..that is STILL available!!


But now I am turning my focus to my 1st passion: to TRANSFORM our psychology…..our mindset….around our health!


I have for years used TOB (Theology of the Body) and St. Hildegard (a woman WAY before her time….I would boldly say the 1st true holistic practitioner/coach)…..as the foundation of my coaching….and honestly my life.

But now I am bringing it more to the forefront.


I will be focusing on the power of our mind first….and understanding the true connection of our physical and emotional health.  Through this lens, we can then understand which tools will be supportive for our whole health!


So some of the tools might be tapping or oils…..but much of it will be truly understanding our mindset and how what we think grows, and what we say has power!


This last year I have had the humbling privilege to work with sooo many women overcome distorted relationships with their body, with food, with their health challenges…..TO TRULY LOVE THE SKIN THEY ARE IN!!!


These women have created lifestyle plans that truly meet their needs (nutritionally, physically, emotionally) with my support and guidance.


In the next couple of months, you will see things rolling out like a new website to Purely Simple Organic Living that will give you links to all the different ways to work with me. 

The monthly zoom group coaching will have themes where you can attend one class at a time or as a month or even longer…..these are all recorded so even if you can’t attend live you would be able to catch the replay…including past sessions! 

And finally, the platform that has the Whole Health Membership that Christina and I lovingly refer to as the Island….is being revamped with resources, videos, self-paced programs, forums, and more!  


I also embarked on an amazing way of having faith discussions with 2 of my dearest friends through a podcast: RISE ABOVE THE NOISE.  More about that soon ;)……


If there is anything I have learned this last year….especially with all the health and political unrest is that sometimes we JUST NEED LOVE AND CONTACT with other beautifully wonderfully made women….and men ;)…..which if HUGS are important to you join our HAPPY HUGGERS GROUP to at least receive a daily virtual hug and encouragement!

Many many blessings, hugs, and prayers always!

Saving Souls!

I was pondering the other day about all the issues and topics that have caused such “heat” and division over the last year……

And it goes for both sides…..even me who is extremely passionate about non-mask, non-vax…….

I can get caught up in empowering and education about the physical health concerns ( because let’s be honest as humans we are sometimes more willing to listen to how something is going to effect us physically versus spiritually)……

That even those of us who are super passionate for one side or another are creating false idol…..let me explain 🤩😍…….

At the end of the day……are you more concerned about your physical body or your soul?

This article reminds me of this!!! (Link below)

It should be unacceptable that ANY babies died/taken/murdered EVER for ANY science…..

That is not science……that is not health!!!!!

We as a society, a people, are soooo concerned with our physical health we miss the point of connecting with our souls health!

When we are in alignment with our souls health then we know what we individually need to do for our own over all health. We know what stand we need to make….where God is leading us…..and that looks different for each of us.

My prayer on this day…..as we get ready to enter into Holy Week…..we remember WHY Jesus came and died on the cross……to save our soul!!!!!

Have a thoughtful and thankful Thursday!!!
