Yes, of course it hurts

 

You’ve heard about coffee enemas right? An expensive cold brew you don’t get to drink. It goes in a different hole 😬

Drinking coffee activates your bowels and improves peristalsis. Why would you…?!?! Never mind, I’ll never understand how this became a trend.

Spring’s got me thinking about what we do in the name of “health.” I notice self-judging thoughts, irritability & anxiety, and an overriding sense of frustration. These are common feelings this time of year, believe it or not. Especially in Maine, we’re behind Alaska as the last to Spring. It’s a sloooow start and I feel agitated.

The truth is, Spring is uncomfortable. Even if you slept like a champion all Winter. Even if you live in a sunny state. Spring is like puberty, it’s awkward. It’s the opposite of smooth, it’s muddy, messy and there’s a lot of change happening at once. 

The idea of reaching for a “coffee enema” to get your bud to sprout FASTER isn’t what mother nature intended.

When you feel bad, your mind spins with should’a, could’a, would’as

That’s natural. Waking up after a long hibernating season, you’re not supposed to feel “springy & sparkly.” You’re supposed to feel like you just woke up! The key here is to understand you’re in a season and not get swept away trying to “fix” it.  [Read more…]

Your New Year’s Challenge

Eat More!

I’m serious. In the wake of New Year’s, cleanses are trending, stores are stocked with Detox Kits and the desire for a fresh start is HOT. I want you to stay STRONG.

Don’t let your New Year’s ambitions give in to the “quick fix.” Resist the pills & packets that promise health and do what you know is good for you, eat well

My New Year’s Challenge is to avoid the idea that you you can jumpstart your health by cleaning your colon, eliminating toxins or limiting calories. INSTEAD, feed your body life-giving nutrients. 

Here’s what makes the eat more, not less strategy so successful: 

1. You dodge the deprivation/binge cycle.

2. You get ‘excited’ about food instead of ‘careful’. 

3. You gain momentum. Unlike cleanses, you don’t want to stop! (longevity). 

4. Eating nutrition creates a desire for more nutrition (cravings transform).

5. Chronic health problems go away.

6. Nagging hunger stops (sugar cravings and nighttime snacking disappear).

Don’t waste your New Year get-up-and-go on a diet, detox or cleanse. If you need structure & motivation, I’ve created something sane, doable and 100% effective.  

My New Year’s Challenge takes 10 days. It is a challenge, I’m not going to lie. One that will leave you deeply nourished, proud and UNSTOPPABLE. The measure of a successful ‘eating plan’ is how well you transition to the REAL WORLD. This is how you’re going to sustain your progress and more importantly, multiply your results. Anyone can not eat gluten or sugar for 10 days, this is so much more. 

Please have a look NOW, my Challenge is time sensitive… we begin TUESDAY January 27th and I want YOU to be apart of this. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to get a head start in 2015. 

To new beginnings & a whole lot of Mojo in 2015!!!

Avoid the “quick fix,” you deserve more!
