40 Days to Freedom

If you have hung out with me here for any amount of time you know I am a huge advocate of all types of fasts: Spiritual, Nutritional, Absolute, Intermitent….etc.

File Feb 14, 12 18 17 PM

For me it does not matter what type of fast I go into it is always taken into prayer…..and sometimes it is actually given to me through prayer and then me re-taking it into prayer so I can hear clearly what I am supposed to be doing.

But one of the biggies I usually do with a fast is I usually do not share with many people;  usually only 1 or 2 are brought into it.  And that is because it was spoken into me shortly after my huge transformation with fasting in the beginning.  God pressed it into my heart that all fasts forward were to remain private unless told otherwise.

Well here I am years later Him telling me loud and clear…..this one is too big for you….you need to be united with others….lots of others.

Why?

Because there is a HUGE DISCONNECT with who we are as people and in our healing.

There are sooo many hurting people turning to sooo many different types of addictions (drugs, alcohol, pornography, food, shopping, apathy, body…etc).   And why?  To avoid the work of healing.  And why?  Because healing is hard work!

Healing means you have to be willing to go THROUGH the pain….not around it.

Healing means you have to open your eyes to and bring to the front what you have been avoiding.

So on September 2-October 12, I will be entering into a fast that is intentional in praying for people who are struggling with addictions.

I think we probably ALL know someone who is burdened by addiction.  Who has been enslaved by the lies of its soothing denial of the truth.

I can’t do this alone.

So regardless if you enter into a fast or just add extra prayers during those 40 days….are you open to add the intentional prayers for those struggling with addictions?

When we CONNECT our prayers and spirits together we truly CAN move mountains!

Have an amazingly blessed day and labor day weekend!

My hugs and prayers are always with each and every one of you!

blessings,

Kelly 😉

Hormones: Groan!

When I look at my beautiful daughter I hate that I passed on to her my hormonal imbalances!

But what she has that I didn’t have at her age is so much more understanding of it…and how to overcome and transform her health!

One way our hormones can be imbalanced is being estrogen dominant.

Estrogen dominance can be very common, and despite knowing the signs and symptoms of this condition, you should also know what to do if you are suffering from it.

💧The 10 most common symptoms of estrogen dominance:

Abnormal menstrual periods

Low libido

Fatigue

Bad PMS (breast tenderness/swelling, mood swings, and headaches)

Hair loss

Weight gain (especially hips and abs)

Brain fog

Trouble sleeping

Thyroid dysfunction

Sluggish metabolism

Here are the steps you should follow in order to restore the healthy hormonal balance in the body:

💜Step 1: Eliminate Xenoestrogens

We are constantly being exposed to various chemicals, and one of them is “xenoestrogen,” which can mimic estrogen in the body.

Therefore, in order to avoid these adverse effects, you should avoid the use of the following top offenders:

Plastic Tupperware

Plastic water bottles

BPA cans

Cosmetics, makeup, and toiletries

Tap water

Non-organic dairy, produce

Soy protein isolate

Dryer sheets

Birth control pill

💜Step 2: Elimination (ie: poo 💩)

This step is essential as it will ensure the removal of estrogen, and prevent its re-entrance into the bloodstream in the case of chronic constipation.

Make sure you are having daily bowel movements, and in case you are not:

Drink 2-3L of water daily

Increase the intake of fiber-rich foods

Increase the intake of vegetables with every meal.

💧Add the TerraGreens to ensure extra fruits and veggies!

Consume probiotics:

💧PB Assist

💧PB Assist Jr

💪🏻best taken before bedtime to restore gut.

To promote bowel movements, supplement with magnesium citrate or Triphala

Moreover, in order to help the removal of waste and toxins from the body, you should also:

Exercise or go to a sauna to stimulate sweating

Breathe deeply to support the lungs

Massage your body to support the lymph

Use a dry skin brush to eliminate dead skin cell.

Use your oils with dry brushing!

Oils for lymph drainage support:

💧Purify

💧DDR Prime

💧Slim&Sassy

💜Step 3: Improve Liver Health and Estrogen Detoxification

Estrogen is effectively removed by a well-functioning liver. In the first stage, the liver turns harmful estrogen intro milder, weaker forms of estrogen, and in the second stage, it converts it into a water-soluble form, so you can eliminate it through the stool or urine.

Yet, the liver won’t be able to fulfill its function if the body lacks important nutrients, or it is overburdened with other chemicals, accumulated due to the use of processed foods, drugs, and alcohol.

To support the function of the liver, you should:

Drink lots of filtrated water

Do not drink alcohol

Each a real, whole-foods based diet

Avoid overeating

Eat foods that support liver health, such as kale, dandelion greens, beets, garlic, eggs, dark leafy greens, artichoke, onions, leeks, shallots, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, etc.)

Taking supplements that are rich in detoxifying vitamins and minerals is super helpful.

Such as:

💧LLV

💧GX Assist

💧Zendocrine

In order to kick start your metabolism and improve your overall healthy by detoxifying and energizing the body try:

💧Mito2Max

💧DDR Prime

💧cleanse and restore kit/system

Finally center yourself each day!!!

Find 5-10 minutes at least once if not twice a day to truly reflect on your whole health!

Sometimes when our estrogen is out of whack and we’ve done all the physical and nutritional needs then that means we have some mental, emotional, spiritual stuff we need to address.

But we aren’t going to know unless we stop to center ourselves and find some alignment within ourselves!

How are your hormones?!

As always I hope you take a moment to sit….pray….journal….tap….and oil up today!

Hugs and prayers always,

Kelly 💜

“I’m not drinking right now!”

I recently listened to a fabulous podcast from Melissa Hartwig, the co-founder of Whole30.  She was giving an update on her “I’m not drinking right now” experiment.

img_6850

So it had me thinking about the times I have done this in the past.  I went for a little over a year, shortly after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, with no alcohol.  There were some specific health stuff I needed to heal from and make sure alcohol wasn’t a contributing issue or that it wasn’t going to slow down the healing process.

Now something I have learned over the years of doing different types of fasts, or abstaining, I KNOW that even if I am approaching it with a physical goal there will be spiritual and emotional benefits.  As well as when I am entering into a fast for a spiritual reason I will experience physical and mental health benefits.

I don’t believe in coincidences…..lol…..because I am prepping my private coaching clients for a 30 day Health Habits challenge…..and I was looking at weaving some of the concepts and nuggets of the WHOLE30 into it.  More on the why below….but first why this is NO coincidence.

The Whole30 isn’t just about getting back to real food….it’s also about finding freedom with food….figuring out your relationship and trigger points with food.

So even though I have come a very long way……and I truly live now with FOOD FREEDOM, just as I teach and coach…….I also know that WE CAN ALL USE A RESET from time to time…….to make sure there isn’t any little triggers or negative emotions trying to be buried behind the food or drink choices.

And if at the end of 30 days nothing emotionally comes up…..well I sure didn’t lose anything…..if anything I gained a nice reset to my system that probably needed it!

I’m thinking this is going to help me for sure with my gut health….lol….which really isn’t bad…..but anytime a person deals with Hashimoto’s there is ALWAYS ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT!

So these are my plans for AUGUST!  I am going to say NO to alot of things….to just reset my brain….my health…..my emotions….make sure they are all in good check…..

How about you?

Do you have any health goals or plans to reset this fall to enter into winter being the best version of yourself?

Sit with this….pray about it…..journal…..tap….and oil up….and always share with me!  I love hearing how you are living your best life ever!

As always lots of hugs and prayers sent your way!

Kelly 😉

Warrior Woman or Fraud

I have to be honest…I sometimes DO NOT FEEL QUALIFIED to help soo many women!

img_6505

After all HOW CAN I, who is still always working on LOVING THE SKIN I AM IN….teach and coach other women to LOVE THE SKIN THEIR IN!?

This is the beauty of God’s grace and growth…..the more I coach and teach the more I KNOW THE TRUTH: That I am beautifully wonderfully made!

Just because I have formal education, certifications, etc to qualify me to do what I do…..I firmly believe that BECAUSE I have truly felt and walked in the trenches of not loving the skin I’m in….this gives me more qualifications than any of it….

BUT…..it’s because I continue to do the work….so I can continue to help others do their internal work!

We are always going to be a work in progress….even when we have MASTERED one area of our life…..doesn’t mean we don’t have another area that needs some stones overturned….

But I can say because of Saturday’s workshop I TRULY LOVE THE SKIN I AM IN 100% NOW!

Why?  What shifted?

2 things…

First,  I think sometimes since the world I work in and live in is me constantly serving and supporting women and having to be raw, real, and vulnerable…..that sometimes I forget which part of my journey have I really healed from and which part still needs work.

You might wonder how this is possible…..well being the type of person I am…..I FEEL….I mean I really really feel…..I feel other peoples stuff…..and I also willingly put myself in others shoes so I can truly help them figure out how to get into their own thriving and healing work.

The second huge shift and aha was when one of the participants at the workshop shared her “why”….why she truly 100% of the time loves the skin she is in!  It was so profound and beautiful….that I realized “hmm” I’m done with allowing that 2% lingering and not having me truly fully healed from/with dysmorphia.  I refuse to allow it to even own 2% of my life.  Just because I have certain wires in my brain that need to be reworked doesn’t mean it gets to possess anymore of my energy.  I am done with it!

How about you?

Are you done with not feeling ENOUGH!?

Are you done with believing the the lies?

Are you ready to say: I AM BEAUTIFULLY WONDERFULLY MADE?

Are you ready to say: I AM WORTH IT!

Take a moment to pray…journal….tap….and oil up about it!

And if you are open to share your story…..to share your journey…..to grow in your WHOLE HEALTH…..join me in making a change!

My prayers and hugs always dear one!

Kelly 😉

Transformation Trio

14 day challenge

I am so super excited to share and support a beautiful group of ladies starting this Friday!  (To learn more about it….check out this link to the private FB Group….click here)!

The more I do what I do…..the more I feel and experience the amazing power of God.  I see all these amazing women….whether they are coming for the monthly workshop….or participating in a challenge…..or diving deep with coaching and support……I see them desiring to LOVE THE SKIN THEY ARE IN!

And Oh how I can relate to that!

It is a journey I still have to work on……and when I am really raw and honest…there are days I truly feel like a fraud.  After all how can I tell women to love the skin they are in when I have to still work so hard at it myself!  And that’s when I realize…that is exactly what makes me qualified to serve, support and coach these lovely ladies!  Because I have been there, done that, and I still have to work on my relationship with food and my body….the dysmorphia disconnect…..I know not to believe the lies my mind tries to feed my brain…..but I know I have to always work on the heart part!  It just is what it is……and because of that I am able to see YOU….see how beautifully wonderfully made YOU ARE!

But here is the key…..

I am no longer surviving…..I am THRIVING in this walk of life….this walk of WHOLE TRUE health and wellness (not illness)……

I HAVE BEEN TRANSFORMED…..and I TRANSFORM  a little more each day!

Have you TRANSFORMED YOUR MIND? Your relationship with food and body!?

Would love to hear your thoughts…..

Until then….remember to…..

Sit….pray…..journal…..tap…..and oil up!

Hugs and prayers always,

Kelly 😉

Clear the Mental Chatter

I have been wrestling with some internal work…..which is good but man it’s exhausting sometimes…..lol….

2019-01-13 20.16.33

So reminding myself of my pillars of health have been super helpful!

I have always found it interesting that when I am teaching and/or coaching with others……or putting together workshops…..well what ever the topic is seems to be exactly what I am needing at that time as well….I just didn’t realize it…lol….

As I have been diving deeper into prepping for a workshop I am having on the 6th….it’s been bringing up some of the old junk and yuck of my journey with dysmorphia!

Which has me realizing that I MUST continue to do the mental and emotional work…..which means….I MUST be working on my sleep, stress levels, and toxin load…..because those all contribute to my mental chatter: negative or positive.

I also realized that by not coming on here….and sharing with you all I wasn’t helping myself……and I DEFINITELY wasn’t serving, supporting, and loving you the best I could.  Because we all need each other…..we are connected through this great big world….and even if I can’t sit down and physically have a cup of tea with you….doesn’t mean I can’t show up here and have tea with you!

I think sometimes in the big world of blogging, FB, Instagram, and all other sorts of social media we forget to truly show up and connect….the same way we would at tea or a dinner party.

We get caught up in thinking we must have pictures just perfect…..so many hashtags….and all the other chatter…..and we forget just showing up is what is important.  Staying connected is what is important.

So this is me staying connected…..let you know that I have so much to share with you and I promise to quit thinking it all has to be “perfect”…..quit thinking you won’t want to hear this or that…..and to quit comparing what I am doing to what others are doing!

Because I am ME….and no one else can be ME!  And you need ME…..just as I am…..just like I need each of you to be just as you are!

Because WE ARE ENOUGH!

Have an amazingly blessed day.

Hugs and prayers always,

Kelly 😉

Food Food Food – YUM!!!

Dear Warrior Woman,
~
What is your relationship with food?
~
Mine hasn’t always been that great….so much of it is tied to how I was raised….the traumas I have experienced….and even how the dismorphia can distort and moralize food!
~
img_1012
~
And then we live in a culture where there is food that truly is not food…..that I’m not quite sure how it get’s to have the title of food….lol….
~
This last Saturday I held a wonderful workshop all about having fun with our food in the kitchen.
~
My relationship with food isn’t perfect…..but it is peaceful now!  And that is beyond progress.
~
I love sharing with others how much fun we can have with food….even when we have health conditions that our choices can be limited or need have caution….
~
But since I didn’t want you to miss out totally on the workshop fun since you don’t live near me….or do you:)…..any ways other than not being able to actually taste the food..lol…..I decided to record the workshop!!!
~
Since the topic was not about diving into our emotions….it was an aha moment of “You may not be able to come to me….but I can come to you!”
~
I hope you enjoy the video…..I would love to hear your feedback.  Which recipe do you think you’re looking forward to trying?
~
~
Have an amazing week and let me know if you have any questions or how I can serve you best on your own wellness journey!
~
~
Many hugs and blessings,
Kelly 🙂
~

PS….
Do you have limiting beliefs on your worthiness of your health?
Here is a bonus video (click here)  to address just that….how I discovered I was WORTHY of hope and healing in my health!
~
~
PPS…..
And I am super excited about soooo many freebies for this month……and a totally new oil…..that I had to share with you…..(click here to learn about Savory Summer….and more!)

Wow your food!

I’ve been kind of absent here for a few but I don’t want everyone to think I forgot about you all 🥰…..

💜

To catch you up….I’ve been prepping for a really fun food workshop….and it has had me working and reflecting on all the amazing women I’ve worked with on understanding the psychology of food as well as continue to do my own internal work!

💜

If 80% of our health, our physical body, is a reflection of what we eat…..and 80% of our health can be supported by the top 10 oils then why wouldn’t I have fun combining them?!

💜

I have always believed we need to not fear our food!

💜

But when we are on a healing journey whether it is because of a physical health challenge or a mental health challenge….well food can feel more like a foe rather than a friend!

💜

My top tips that I do every time I eat now is:

💜

1. Spice it up….do things that are going to feel like there is an amazing party going on in my mouth!

💜

2. I sit…..smile….and slow down when I eat! If I can’t do those three then I fast.

💜

3. I celebrate the moment. I not only give thanks but I truly celebrate the transformation that is taking place in each bite…..transformation I may not even realize yet!

💜

How do you think you can transform your relationship with food? For your physical and mental health?!

💜

As always…lots of hugs and prayers!

Kelly
