Losing Our Babies.

Have you seen the movie groundhogs day? That is how I feel about my grief. Every night I go to bed feeling a little bit better. Each morning I wake up feeling exactly the same way I felt on the days I lost my babies. Every morning I wake up afraid to roll out of bed to face the pain. Every morning I wake up scared, sad, and lonely. My Family is here with me, but I feel so alone in my emotions. There are days when the edge of the pain seems to have come off just a bit by the end of the day, and then there are days when I cannot run away from it all.

It can all seem to be just to much to bare. To much to feel. I wish I had more of a positive up lifting post for the day, but I really just want to be okay with feeling lousy. Yesterday I slept from 10 AM to 3:30 PM. It was as if my body shut down from it all. The body knows when things just get to be to much. My body knew to help me rest.

So the moral of my story this morning… its okay to just exist in pain and not run away from it. Its okay to just exist within your thoughts and be with them. Running away from all of it only numbs pain in the present moment, but no matter what that pain will be waiting for you to accept it and you will have to eventually feel it at some point.

Im no expert on grief. I am just sharing my experience with all of you in hopes that someone out there who is going through grief can grab on to any hope from my experiences.054_MironFamilySession

The Best Paleo Noodles Ever!!

16251746_10211804413567256_871245610642386482_o

 

When I decided to switch my diet and follow a Paleo plan I remember feeling a sadness that I was going to not be able to eat noodles!!! I love noodles. I mean I am half asian, noodles are kiiiinda in my blood! I got to searching on the internet for some paleo noodle options, and this is what I found! Sweet potato starch noodles! I was skeptical but I had to give them a shot! With the noodles, I made a whole chicken in my instant pot, I added the broth created from the chicken to a bowl, along with lots of lemon juice. I boiled the noodles and added them to my broth… it was outstanding!!I could not get enough of them. Being that I am pregnant carbs are an important macro to be consuming! Normally I would run to Shirataki noodles, but I wanted to eat something with carbs! This has 24 carbs in one serving

Debt Free Thanks to Beachbody !

In 2008 I walked across the graduation stage and into a mountain of student debt. With my spending habits, and lack of a well paying job, there was no way I could cover the bills that were piling up at my apartment. I was also receiving collection letter after collection letter for the thousands I had put on credit and never paid. I thought everyone had to get into debt to make any sort of money! So I spent like crazy… sadly most of it went to the bar!

I was dodging phone calls left and right from debt collectors. At that point in my life I was sure I would never be debt free. I never thought I would be able to grow the life that I have always wanted while having to pay the mountains of debt I was in.

When Eric and I decided to get married I searched and searched for a way to tell him that he was about to marry into piles of debt. Luckily he loved me enough to say “we will work on this together.”

Cut to 2017, 4.5 years in as a Beachbody Coach and as of January 1st I am 100% Debt Free (with the exception of our house).

On January 1st I paid my very last installment to my student debt!!!

I AM FREEEEEEEE from the collections calls, the endless collection letters! This is debt my family will never have to see again! The feeling is absolutely surreal. When we made the final payment I wiped tears from my eyes. That debt haunted me for 8 years! It brought me so much turmoil and panic.

In the process I was able to improve my credit to a point where we were able to buy a new home (last year) with an amazing interest rate!

It is an incredible feeling to be debt free, and it is even more incredible to teach my daughter about the importance of staying away from spending more than she can afford. To be able to look at my daughter when she is older and tell her “I paid that all off” is a dream come true!

Because we work so hard!

A Complete Test list for Holistic Approaching CURING Depression.

So many of you have asked me about Anxiety and Depression and what tests I have done to treat the cause of the symptoms rather than just bandage the symptoms! When I knew I was struggling with Depression and Anxiety again and my sleep was disrupted, I knew that something was wrong in my body. I was not sure what, but my body was out of balance. At first I thought I’d get away with just taking medication and just move on with my life. When my medication stopped working for me, thats when my red flags went up and I knew I had to begin fighting for my health and well being because I could not live the way I was feeling forever.

So I set out on a journey to better my health. For someone who works out every day, eats clean for the most part, it was shocking to me that I was so unhealthy. Something was wrong and I was determined to find out what it is. I linked arms with my wonderful Holistic Doctor and we began the journey of testing to uncover my root cause. So many people think that Depression is a disease! No its a sign, and symptom, a signal that something is not firing off right in your body.

So here is what we tested. Please feel free to ask me what each of these test do in case you are not understanding.

1. 24 Hour Cortisol test for Adrenal Fatigue. (I came back showing normal Cortisol levels)

2. 23andmetest.com for genetic mutations and variations that need to be supported through supplementation. (I have the variants MTHFR677. I am also a rapid metabolizer of medications)

3. Heavy metals toxicity test. (I cannot do this under after I have the baby.

4. Hair test to show vitamins and minerals. (I was very low in VIT D)

5. Food intolerance test. (intolerant of eggs and gluten)

6. The OATS test (this is a urine test that checks to see if you have low serotonin, norepinephrine, magnesium, Folate… and so on. ).
(waiting on results)

7. The stool test for parasites and bacteria.
(waiting on results)

6. Urine test for Molds in your body. .
(waiting on results)

7. TPO score to see if you have Hashimotos (antibodies being created to destroy thyroid. Your body should not be creating these antibodies. It is a sign that something is off in your gut.
(I tested positive for Hashimotos with a 800 score for TPO)

8. Levels of omega 3 and 6 in your body.
(waiting on results)

9. Candida and yeast test.
Tested Negative but showed that I have had it before and treated it (Thank you clean eating detox and Shakeology!)

10. The Lyme Disease test done through Igenix
(waiting on results)

11. The CD57 test to check for levels of toxicity in your body. (I tested with a low score for this which led me to the Lymes test and the Barr Epstein test.

12. The Barr Epstein test and the co infections test.
(waiting on results)

13. TSH, Free T3 and Free T4 tests for thyroids. Don’t just have your Doctor test TSH! (NOT optimal T3 levels. Not optimal TSH)

I know this is a lot and I am def not an expert, but I can tell you that there is a lot that can be uncovered from these tests, and if you are able to treat these issues, you may just treat the symptom of anxiety and Depression. I suggest grabbing the book The Ultra Mind Solution!! It has helped me to figure out what tests I needed to ask for and where I needed to start researching for treatment options. I am still on my mission as I am not symptom free! I hope this helps someone along the way work with a Holistic Doctor to run these tests and to see what the root cause may be!

Today I start FOLATE treatment with a medication called Enlyte as I tested for the MTHFR genetic variation. Enlyte has shown a 42% remission in test studies for Depression, Insomnia and anxiety!! So I am excited to have finally try this! Thanks to my Holistic doc… we are getting somewhere and my hopes are that I never deal with depression and anxiety ever again!

Good luck everyone

What is Core De Force?

What could you accomplish in just 30 days? How about getting into knockout shape — with a workout designed to help you drop serious weight, carve your entire core, and leave you feeling empowered!

CORE DE FORCE is the first program from our newest Super Trainers Joel Freeman and Jericho McMatthews. From strength training to dance to yoga, they’ve helped thousands get fit with all kinds of workouts. And they’ll be the first to tell you… if you want to transform your entire body and shed the belly fat, nothing beats CORE DE FORCE‘s mixed martial arts-style training.

Here’s how it works: each workout is broken into 3-minute “rounds” — just like a real boxing match. In those 3 minutes you’ll alternate between addictive Boxing, Kickboxing, and Muay Thai-inspired combinations, bodyweight training, and cardio spikes that kick your fat burn into overdrive. But all that punching and kicking doesn’t just burn calories. Each move, whether it’s a jab or a knee, is rotational, giving you a 360-degree core workout that will tighten up your entire midsection. All you have to do is hit it hard 3 minutes at a time and before you know it — you’re done!

Who is Core De Force For? Core De Force is for EVERYONE.  Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced level in your fitness you can do this workout.  You will enjoy the challenge of taking the intensity higher to improve your cardio strength, speed and endurance.  Each MMA inspired workout has an optional move breakdown to help you get familiar with the combinations.  There is also a “modifier track”  so you can follow a split screen if you would like as well.

Core De Force also focuses on rotational moves which means you will work your core from 360 degrees every time you hit play. That is going to be awesome for all of us who really want to tone that trouble area!

You will receive the program for a fraction when you purchase it as a challenge pack! The challenge pack will cost $140. It will include a 30 day supply of Shakeology, the full Core De Force program, as well as a meal guide to follow!

What are the Portion Control Eating Plan details?The Portion Control Eating Plan is not a recipe-based plan like other Beachbody nutrition plans. Here’s how it works: Start by calculating a calorie level based on starting weight. Next, find the calorie chart that corresponds with the calorie level. This will indicate the daily allotment of color-coded containers. From there, the Eating Plan shows a list of foods that can be eaten with each color-coded container. Then, just fill the containers with the foods from the list, up to the daily allotment of the containers. No required recipes. No required number of meals. No required foods or ingredients. If it fits in the container, it can be eaten!
