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?

A Week of Nourishing Gratitude

As I get older, I notice that there are many holiday traditions that I want to start sharing with my finance Anthony. After over a month of a crazy 7-day work schedule Thanksgiving week I had off Wednesday-Sunday; I haven't had a full day off in over a month and I was determined to make it fun week full of great food, the company of those I love and starting new traditions.

Now as with all holiday weeks you probably think of over indulging in comfort food that's terrible for you. Being I had a very severe wheat exposure attack recently, I knew I wanted to stay strict on Body Ecology but still enjoy myself to the fullest. I made it a point to get in the kitchen this week and make some amazing meals that not only tasted great, but are actually good for you. Here are some of my favorite meals from this week:




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/…

New Beginnings and Gluten Free/Body Ecology Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Can you believe it's September? I personally love the summer, its a great time to hit the reset button. September to me represents new beginnings and chances to start over. I'm excited for what's ahead this coming dance season; I'm ready to take the bull by the horns and have one of my most successful years creatively and career-wise. Something about the September air truly inspires my inner dreamer and I'm encouraged to believe anything is possible. It's so exciting!

To continue my journey on the year of my best self, I'm beginning to delve into mind-body connection and it's relationship to health. I've started reading Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin, MD. I'm about a third of the way into the book and I feel like I'm learning so much already. Constant stress, overexertion, self doubt, and negative thoughts set off flight or fight responses in your body which in turn causes your body to be in a…
