Being Fearless

It's that time of year again, back to school and all the craziness that come with it. I will wholeheartedly admit that the cooling temperature and shorter days makes me feel a little depressed this time of year. This is the challenge for me: stay positive, motivated, and perky. I believe that it takes a bit of courage, fight, and fearlessness to break through all the things that make us a little melancholy. I've decided to focus on these challenges and find the positivity through them.

The key to being happy is being fearless. I've come up with this idea partially on my own, partially through reading Rhonda Britton's book Fearless Living, and partially through a very important person's Life Coaching Practice, The Fearless Road. When we allow ourselves to take risks, explore, discover, and even fail we have a chance to discover who we are and what we are passionate about. I've recently been seeing this idea of fearlessness coming out in my teaching philosophy. At the end of the day we all want to be happy and if we spend our time complaining, worrying, and apologizing for who we are we will be unhappy and unfulfilled.

In light of all this, I spent my commute this afternoon being fearless and allowing myself to enjoy the cool breeze on the ferry and zone out to my iPod. That 20 minute ride refocused my energy for the rest of the day and I mentally was in a much happier place. I found myself acknowledging what I have accomplished thus far this semester and was able to see that no matter what, all the work will get done.

How do you like to be fearless? What brings you to your happy place?

The Truth About My Journey With The Body Ecology Diet

It's been a really long time since I've posted here. Some of it was because life's been very busy. A lot of it has been because I've been afraid. I'm afraid of disappointing you, my tried and true readers. I've received so many wonderful messages over the last 3 years since starting the Body Ecology Diet that I'm an inspiration and that my blog has helped you to stay on track and commit to your health. I was afraid that if I wrote that I've been struggling lately that you would be disappointed. I haven't abandoned my beliefs about the wonders of this lifestyle at all. In fact I believe in it 100%. After my wedding 2 1/2 months ago, I had a lot of emotional baggage come up. I'm so happy in my marriage and have the best husband in the world but I no longer have the distraction of wedding planning to keep me distracted from really dealing with my issues; issues that go beyond food. You see Body Ecology taught me that this whole adventure is a mind/b

Autumn Harvests

I am a self-proclaimed summer chic. I much prefer warm sunny days over the cold chilly winter days that accompany the upcoming holiday season. That being said, there is one thing I do love about this time of year and that's the autumn harvest! My favorite squashes are in full bloom and I can't get enough of them. They're warming, a little sweet, and in my opinion nature's own organic comfort food. I mean seriously nature was cool enough to give us a "pasta" plant ready for you to mix up with your favorite sauce! (If you haven't experienced spaghetti squash, I suggest you get your hands on one immediately. No boiling water required and you can even use the "skin" as a bowl!) So what are the different types? Here's a list of my favorites! Delicata squash. It almost looks like a multi-colored cucumber (except with a much firmer exterior). I have made both savory and sweet dishes with this deliciously versatile squash! If you haven&
I started this blog as an accountability tool when I began the Body Ecology Diet almost 4 years ago. There have been a lot of life changes this year from marriage to new jobs. When I started my journey it was because I wanted to be healthy and glowing for my wedding day. After the wedding, I can honestly say I felt  a bit lost on my health journey because my motivation was gone. I have a wealth of knowledge about healthy eating, meditation, self-care, and exercise at my fingertips but I became very unsure of my motivations. This morning I'm writing to tell how I've re-discovered my motivation. My husband recently read Louise Hay's book  You Can Heal Your Life  and has been sharing her mantras and guidance with me. I read the book myself a few years back but have found his discussions re-igniting the fire inside me. You see the only way we can make healthy lifestyle changes and truly find happiness is to love ourselves. Last night I went to dinner with some of the most ins
