I Did It!

Today was a milestone day in my journey to a positive healthy life. Today marks exactly 3 months that I've been on the Body Ecology Diet. I've never felt better and I truly feel like a new person. The celebration of this day started in the wee hours of the morning. I was out late babysitting last night and came home around 1:45 am to this waiting for me:

Anthony bought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers and wrote me a very heartfelt note congratulating me on my success thus far. I feel so blessed to have such a strong supporter in my life and I teared up a little when I read the card. His kindness, constant cheer leading, and helping incorporate body ecology principles into my life have really allowed me to be successful. I can't thank him enough and feel like the luckiest girl in the world.

So 3 months in, why is this such a big deal you ask? Well I am now able to start incorporating some new foods into my diet and I have known for weeks what I wanted to try first ;-)


This morning I ate blueberries for the first time in what seems like forever. Since I haven't had any fruit other than lemon and limes my taste buds were ecstatic when the natural sweetness of these yummy berry bombs hit my mouth. I never realized before how sweet they can be; it truly tastes like nature's candy! I felt great after eating them, both satisfied with my choice and I showed no former symptoms. I am excited to eat them again later this week after passing the initial waiting period. 

After going through this transition for 3 months I now see how important good food and proper digestion are to feeling great. For me, finding The Body Ecology Diet was truly a game changer in my life both mentally and physically. Life seems brighter every day and I'm excited to see what positive things come my way each day. My overall thought process is so much more positive and clearer. I am eager to keep traveling on this journey and discovering wonderful new things every day.

Tonight I wish you all happiness in your own journey, wherever you are. I hope that my experiences thus far can inspire you to make small changes every day to better yourselves. 

Believe!
Achieve!
Succeed!

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/…

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't cut up …
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 inspir…
