Starting Anew: My Journey to Be My Best Self

It's been a while since I last blogged and much has happened. It's been a whirlwind of a year so far. I've gotten engaged to the love of my life, started a dance company, and my dance education career has really taken off. I have so much to be grateful for and am actively taking steps to keep my life positive and happy. One of the biggest changes I've made is becoming more in tune with what I put in my body. After re-discovering my wheat allergy last summer and eliminating prescription and over the counter allergy meds I've noticed a huge change in my temperament. I feel like a fog has been lifted, my weight is stabilizing, I'm less bloated and somewhat less tired. I recently read The Body Ecology Diet and have decided to make a lifestyle change and go for it. This book stresses mental and physical health through proper digestion and food intake making you look and feel better from the inside out. If you feel like life is overwhelming at times, have trouble with energy, or feel like your living in a fog this book is a must read. Now, I am only just officially starting, but I have high hopes that this change will make a positive impact on my life. My goal is to keep my blog up to date with my progress while following the Body Ecology Diet. Thanks for your support and remember, only you have the power to make a positive change in yourself.

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

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 to

30, Flirty, and Fun!

So I started writing this post on April 17, the day before my 30th birthday. I'm definitely a little behind on this one, but it's been on my mind a lot. Enjoy :) Enjoying my birthday cake with the coolest candle ever! Turning 30, it's something I never gave much thought to nor did I anticipate it coming. It's always seemed really far away. In all honesty, I imagined it to be a place I would never get to. It's arrived however and while I thought it would be very strange, I'm feeling rather great about it. Before I get into the whole story, let me give you some background information. I've never been fond of my birthday. In fact I can even remember dreading it when I was much younger. It always felt ominous, foreboding, and like something terrible was going to happen. There are a multitude of personal reasons for this (saving that topic for a much further time in the future to discuss) why I've felt this way. I also have never dealt well with
