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.

My Birth Story

On December 1, 2018 at 12:06pm Julia Patricia entered the world. But her story doesn't begin there. This birth went nothing like I had expected and while I have not regrets or disappointments, to say I wasn't (and still am not) stressed and emotional about it would be an understatement.

When I found out I was pregnant in early March, I was so excited and a little bit nervous at the same time. I was excited that we had been able to get pregnant without any complications and very quickly too. I had been diagnosed with mild PCOS a few years earlier and had spent most of my teens and twenties with menstrual issues and often wondered if I would ever be able to get pregnant. I know that following the Body Ecology Diet, working with functional doctors, seeing my chiropractor  for nutritional therapy, and going to acupuncture made a huge difference going into this process. Getting my health back definitely is something I'm grateful for and what I attribute my pregnancy success too…

Healing through Grief

It's been a long time since I've written. A lot of that had to do with a very busy work schedule and some new business ventures. I am so grateful for all the positive feedback I've gotten recently about this blog and I was reminded how much this blog helped me when I was struggling with my health. 4 years later I am finding myself in a place where I feel like I need to go back to my roots and start over.

2016 was a whirlwind of a year. January brought the unexpected surprise of a full-time teaching position at Monmouth University. I was so excited about getting to teach dance full-time at the college level but because it was such an unexpected surprise I was still teaching for 2 private studios 10 hours a week and I was in the process of launching a new lifestyle program for dancers. Talk about  a lot going on! While I stayed true to the BED principles, I had let some sugar creep back into my life and honestly all the stress I was feeling made me crave it more. Once summer…

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/…
