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.

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…

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…

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/…
