Keep It Positive

This morning's paper was filled of news about stock market drops, protests, sex abuse scandals, disposal of soldier remains in a garbage dump, and the only thought that came to mind was, "Is there any kind of positive happenings going on in the world?" I am not attempting to make a politically charged post and I am not going to comment on any of these stories. My sole purpose is to comment on negative versus positive energy.

When I opened the paper and saw so much negativity being displayed, I wondered if anyone could truly read the paper and just enjoy themselves. My thought is that negatvity breeds more negativity; positivity has the same effect. So here is some positive thoughts/news for the day to breed some good feelings in the world today:

Mastercard is sponsoring a program called Priceless New York in which they are setting up gourmet food trucks around New York City on Thursdays to give out free lunches. Who doesn't like a free gourmet meal? To find out more info and to see locations like their facebook page by clicking here.

The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts is offering a FREE exhibit displaying a preview of materials from archives of Mikhail Baryshnikov as well as a look at a 1967 yearbook featuring notes from Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire. This exhibit closes Dec. 3. For more information go to nypl.org or call the library directly 212-870-1657.

My closing thought for this post is this: If you want to make a positive change/impact on your life and others, emote positive energy and put a positive spin on all you do. Postive actions result in more positive actions.

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/…

Diving Into Motherhood

The first 2 weeks of Julia's life were a lesson in patience, energy, and making a lot of medical decisions. I'm not going to lie, it was a mentally and physically exhausting time and while I know there are many kids out there who have way worse going on, I was not expecting to have to make decisions about surgical procedures and ultrasounds for my new born child so quickly. As someone who likes order, structure, and control, this was a huge transition for me.

As you can read in my birth story, Julia was in the NICU for the first 3 days of her life. I had spiked a fever while pushing and she was born with a fever, covered in meconium, and was not breathing. She was hooked up to antibiotics and fluids via IV to make sure she was getting the nutrition she needed. At around 10pm on the day she was born the neonatologist gave us the ok to start breastfeeding her. She had a lot of trouble latching and the nurses just kept trying to shove my boob in her mouth (to put it bluntly). The…

Spring Cleaning and Key Lime Pie!

It's been quite a while since I've had a moment to sit down and blog. I'm happy to say it's all good things keeping me busy. My dance company Aries In Flight has had 3 performances in the last month and I'm busy making connections and working on a coaching program for dancers as well. I will say at the end of the day I love having this space to share my thoughts, recipes, and stories with you all so thank you for your constant feedback and support.

I've had a lot to contemplate and think about both health-wise and professionally speaking this winter. I rearranged my work schedule in January and began really pushing full force with my dance company. In so many ways this all so thrilling, exciting, and wonderful; in others ways it is utterly frightening. What I mean is that taking your dream and really making it a reality brings up some crazy thoughts. Will people like me? Am I crazy for thinking this way? Am I making the biggest mistake of my life? I've had…
