The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

I guess I needed another challenge in my life… lol.  The truth is, my nutrition needs a complete overhaul.  I usually do the right thing.  And I should know about the right thing.  I’ve studied natural health.  I am all about living well.  The whole mind body and soul thing.  I help my clients with their own mind/body/soul on a daily basis.

The truth is, we are all human and although I personally was doing fantastic in terms of my health right up until early January, life got busy, priorities changed and I found myself no longer going to the gym regularly.  The next thing I knew, I started slipping with my nutrition.  You know, one piece of Valentine’s Day chocolate can’t hurt…  Now almost mid March I am recovering from a rotator cuff injury (Note: Do not lift heavy stuff into your truck with only one arm), which means I haven’t been the one cooking, which means nutrition has been totally out the window for 2-3 weeks.  Okay, so the shoulder is better and I could cook… but I’m milking it…

Unfortunately, when you are not in control of your kitchen, you eat whatever is available.  This means I’ve been eating a lot of things I normally wouldn’t eat.  Sugar being one of the main things that has crept back into my body and I am feeling it in so many ways.  My immune system is low, I’ve got aches and pains everywhere and inflammation is setting in.  This means I have to take a few funny steps when I get up before I am able to walk normally.  THIS IS NOT GOOD!!!

Something needs to be done and I know it’s going to be drastic.  So Keto it is!  The Ketogenic Diet is close enough to what I normally eat and enjoy.  However, I am very aware that I will be giving up a LOT of things that I also enjoy greatly.  I think that for me the benefits will outweigh the downfalls.  The hard part will be sticking to it and not giving in to temptation.  And believe me, temptation is EVERYWHERE around me.  I have three lovely kiddies that love candy and chocolate and cookies.  We do eat lots of pasta.  And we have a Friday night tradition that involves McDonalds and sushi.

Needless to say, this isn’t going to be a walk in the park.  I am very aware that I will be cooking different meals for myself and the rest of the family.  I do not believe in imposing my new life challenge on my family.  When they are ready to make changes for themselves they will let me know.  I also believe that children should be allowed to be children.  A treat here and there won’t hurt.

So this is it.  I embark on this new food journey, knowing very little about what on earth I will eat tomorrow, but determined to make this my long term lifestyle.  Thankfully, I have a great friend who was able to give me a quick rundown of the important points.  Equipped with knowledge, I made myself a makeshift Keto sandwich with two slices of cheddar and ham in between.  I even had a handful of cashew as a snack this evening.  The real challenges begin tomorrow morning.  I need to pack my food to take with me to the office.  This means that I need to have something planned, cooked and ready to go by 7:20 am.

I better sleep on it!  Wake up time comes pretty early for me.

May Baydoun did all the “right” things and followed all the “right” steps. But she knew deep down that there was more to life than getting an education, getting married, having children... There had to be more than just the cards you are dealt. Watching her children play, she overheard her daughter saying “... just like mommy”. The sudden realization that her children, her daughters especially, would grow up to be just like mommy frightened her deeply. She was the role model of what a woman can be in this life and at that time, May wasn’t satisfied with who she was nor what she stood for. She was nothing more than her mother had shown her to be... A woman in her thirties, married with young children putting her dreams and ambitions on a permanent hold to raise a family. In that moment, she fully understood that she could not expect her children to become more or better than she was willing to be herself. It was a harsh reality check; and in that moment, she made the decision she would become the best version of herself she could be because she HAD to be the best possible role model for her children. That powerful decision, her awakening, meant that she could no longer accept the average life she had led up until that point. She set out on a wild journey of deep self-discovery. Not only of who she was, but who she wanted to be and how to become that woman who had that life. Along the way, she made the discovery of the law of attraction and suddenly her whole life made sense. The good luck... The bad luck... The past decade of her life. It all made sense. She had created it all. And if she could create it, then she could dis-create it and re-create something new. She began testing the theory and in no time was proven right. Fully trusting the Universe, she allowed herself to be led on the journey. She has had the beautiful blessing of learning from so many great thought leaders and piecing together the many pieces of life’s intriguing puzzle. Over a decade later, she has discovered her life purpose, and is living it fully. Now that the student has become a master, she teaches others the principles that have led to her radical life transformation and how they too can leverage (or hack) the Universe to get anything they want... without breaking any of the laws!
