    How to get unstuck on your gut healing journey (part 4 of 4)

    Ready for the final tip of this 4-part series to help you get unstuck on your gut healing journey?

    This week, let's talk about what it means to truly reconnect your body especially when you're ready for the reintroduction phase of an elimination diet.

    Hint: asking your body directly instead of being stuck in your head trying to think and analyze your food reaction can make a huge difference in how successful you are at reintroducing foods. Let me show you how!

    Enjoy the listen and please share your comments below!

    The Food Triangle: where do you fit between food rules and rebellion?

    After a conversation with a client where we were talking about food issues swinging between food rules and rebellion, a food triangle appeared to me so clearly.

    Even though I have been stuck myself at the bottom part of that triangle most of my life, it's just lately that I discovered that this whole food dynamic had actually been a triangle all along and that my recovery was because I started exploring the top of the triangle, which is really the best and healthiest place to be.

    I know it's probably not making any sense right now and that's why I recorded a video to explain it all.

    To give you a taste, the 2 bottom extremities of the triangle are food rules vs food rebellion.

    Listen to learn more and discover what the top of the triangle offers as another alternative to endlessly bouncing off between the food rules and food rebellion?

    Enjoy the listen!

    ~ Nourish Your Roots ~ [6-week LIVE group program] ~ starting July 17!

    Are you spinning your wheels when trying to eat and live more healthfully?

    Do you feel overwhelmed and don't know where to get started
    Or maybe you try to do everything at once and end up giving up?

    Over the 11+ years of experience I have working with clients as a
    registered dietitian, nutritionist, and coach, I learned 2 things:

    1) the most powerful habits are the ones we can stick to, AND
    2) the best results come from nourishing our 4 roots: body + mind + heart + soul.

    This is exactly what the Nourish Your Roots Program will help you do. Instead of falling prey to the shiny object syndrome and getting distracted by too much information, new gadgets, and the supplement du jour (or getting distracted by life in general taking the focus away from your health and yourself), this 6-week program will provide a safe container for you to nourish and grow your roots.

    Think of your health like a garden.

    Most people throw many seeds in the garden but where they fail is that they forget to truly nurture and nourish the seeds that can produce those very strong roots and healthy flowers and trees that you want to feel your best.

    Are you ready to truly cultivate your health
    by nourishing your roots?

    Let's spend the next 6 weeks together so I can teach you
    and guide you to take better care of your health garden?

     

    What will I learn with the "Nourish Your Roots" program?

    It's hard to put into words the transformation that happens with this program, but here's an idea of what you will walk away with! 🙂

    At the end of the 6 weeks, you will:

    • have a SOLID foundation of healthy habits that nourish your body, mind, heart, and soul
    • reconnect with the inner wisdom of your own body to find the best way to eat for you
    • know how to eat in a non-restrictive way to stabilize your blood sugars and keep your energy levels high throughout the day while minimizing inflammation and promoting healing
    • build your own personalized self-care plan that will prevent self-sabotage from hindering your progress on your healing journey in the future 
    • feel more empowered with your thoughts, inspired with your actions, and aligned with your life instead of having the negative self-talk and self-sabotaging behaviors on auto-pilot 
    • be living a life that is more like YOU and finally allowing your full potential to shine brightly!

    What does the "Nourish Your Roots" program include?

    • Weekly class at the beginning of each week (attend live or watch the recording)
      • see the outline of the weeks below
    • Weekly gardening mission to nourish and grow your roots!
      • information is one thing but action is required for transformation!
    • Weekly group call (also recorded) towards the end of the week to share your focus
      of the week, challenges, and successes (days TBD depending on participants' availability) 
    • accountability and support make all the difference to turn goals into reality!
    • Duration: 6 weeks (July 17 - August 26, 2017)
    • This is a LIVE program but recordings are also provided if you miss any class/call! 🙂
    • Small group of 8-12 people with INDIVIDUAL attention!

    Bonus!

    • Access to AJ (that's me!) and at least 15 minutes a week of individual attention
      through the community and the weekly group calls 🙂
    • Access to a community to ask your questions (to the group and AJ),
      get support, and inspiration 
    • Weekly prizes (1:1 sessions with AJ, energy drawings, and other awesome gifts!)
      for those achieving their weekly gardening mission!

    What is the plan?

    • Week #1: BODY 
      • Focus on food, nutrients, and nutrition
    • Week #2: BODY
      • Focus on other health habits that nourish the body (i.e. sleep and movement)
    • Week #3: MIND
      • Focus on quieting the survival brain and negative self-talk to start rewiring the brain
    • Week #4: HEART
      • Focus on nourishing the heart and using our emotions as messengers to guide us
    • Week #5: SOUL
      • Focus on nourishing the joy and integrating all the different layers (BODY+MIND+HEART)
    • Week #6: CELEBRATION!
      • Focus on reflecting, assessing, celebrating, and getting ready for the next steps!

    My mind was more exhausting than the lack of sleep.

    I was so tired.

    I hadn’t even been awake for 3 minutes and all I wanted to do is go back to sleep and find the “skip” or “fast forward” buttons for the day.

    But I didn’t have a choice. No matter how tired I was, I had to start my day. I had to be a grown-up. I had to adult. Days transformed into weeks and months… (read more below)

    I was a young mom with an 18-month-old toddler who hadn’t slept through the night since he was born. In fact, he would usually wake up at least 4-6 times, needing help to go back to sleep, EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. Sometimes even up to 10 times a night.

    Sleeping only 2-3 hours at a time, at the most, when you are SO tired is like torture.

    Especially when there are absolutely NO SIGNS that this is going to get better any time soon.

    I read ALL the books, listened to ALL the podcasts, and sought ALL the advice I could get my hands on.

    Only to get MORE of the SAME.

    I was a mixture of exhausted, discouraged, hopeless, helpless, resigned at times, irritable, resentful, bitter, and desperate….

    My fatigue was not only physical, but also mental and emotional.

    >>>>>>>> The worse factor was NOT my BABY, it was the VICTIM MENTALITY. <<<<<<<<

    Now over a year later, NOTHING HAS CHANGED with my son sleep-wise. He still wakes up an average of 4-6 times a night, needing my help.

    ★★★ But my ENERGY LEVELS have gone from 1/10 to 7/10. ★★★

    And I have NOT CHANGED anything with my FOOD, overall DIET, or BEDTIME. I have NOT ADDED a single SUPPLEMENT.

    ★★★ The ONE & ONLY THING I did was stepping out of the victim mentality. ★★★

    Every day, I would wake up feeling miserable. I would count the number of times he woke me up and tell myself “I can’t believe he woke me up 7 times last night”. I would tell myself “I’m so tired, I don’t know how I’m going to make it through the day”. I would tell myself “Why is this happening to me? What am I doing wrong? What is wrong with this kid?”

    I almost had a VICTIM MENTALITY stamp on my forehead because that’s how I operated.

    I decided that even though I had no power over my son’s sleep, I had the POWER to CHANGE my MIND and my THOUGHTS.

    ★★★ I decided to no longer count the number of times he would wake up. I decided to start my day telling me things that I needed to hear. “It’s a brand new day, I’m so grateful to be waking up by my son’s side this morning”, “It’s going to be okay, I know I can do this”, “I’ll do the best that I can today and it’s enough”. ★★★

    Pretty quickly, things STARTED SHIFTING in a BIG WAY.

    >>>>>>>> You CANNOT always CONTROL the ROOT CAUSE of your issues, but you can certainly try to NOT SOAK that ROOT in poisonous chemicals (negative thoughts and emotions) and instead add nutrients (positive thoughts and emotions) that will help you feel MORE NOURISHED.
