Welcome

Welcome to day 1 of 30 Days to a Conscious Body (THE FINAL ROUND for this year.) The goal with this program is to give you a different perspective around weight, your body and your overall life. Together we will close gaps that will bring you closer to self-love, self-awareness and self-discovery.

I know that there is currently a lot going on in the world. Many of us have experienced stress, sadness, anger, overwhelm, confusion and a lot more these last couple of days. It’s easy to get consumed by fear with everything that’s going on during this pandemic. I encourage you to be cautious and to stay informed but don’t let the fear take over your life. It is not healthy for any of us.

The best we can do during times like this is focus on what is in our control. As we continue to navigate through this global health crisis plagued with uncertainty, one of the most effective measures in our power is to take care of our whole selves - our mind, our body and our spirit. If you are in a position to do that, consider yourself blessed.

During the next 30 days you will learn how to transform your mind and body in a way that works specifically for YOU! Cookie cutter programs DON’T work. It’s time to take this deeper. If you haven’t had success in the past, it’s because you haven't tapped into what truly works for you. Here you will learn the tools that will allow you to stop seeking for answers outside of yourself and finally get you looking within.

A reminder that you must take this program seriously for your own healing and transformation. It is your responsibility to start redirecting your journey. I am excited that I get to support you in this.

Let’s Begin!

Week 1: Deliberate Practices

Day 1/30: The Power Of Intention

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change” - Dr. Wayne Dyer

What we are currently experiencing in the world is getting us to rethink the way we do life. It’s time to live less out of habit and more out of intent. When we pair deliberate intention with our actions, we create more of what we truly want. Get intentional about the next 30 days. Be aware that some things may change throughout the program and that’s okay. Give yourself room to grow and experiment. For the purpose of this exercise, we are going to keep our intentions general. We are going to focus on the feeling rather than numbers. We can talk about numbers (weight, scale, measurements) later. We will revisit our goals and intentions throughout the program and adjust accordingly. 

 

Journal Prompts:

  • How do I want to feel in my body? ex) I want to feel strong, fast and flexible.

  • How do I currently feel in my body? ex) Low energy, bloated, tense, not as comfortable as I’d like to be.

 

Set 3 intentions for the next 30 days:

1.

2.

3.

Activity:

  14. ___ I am able to forgive myself and move on.

  15. ___ I am able to forgive others and let go of resentment. 

  16. ___ I choose to not turn to alcohol/ drugs to forget about my problems.

  17. ___ I tend to worry about things

Reflect: How do you feel about your answers?

2/30 Deliberate Practice and Goal Setting

"Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is show up" -Brene Brown

It’s time to get honest with yourself. Look at your daily habits, thoughts, and actions. Ask yourself if your behavior is causing you to grow, decline, or stay stagnant. Are you going forward or going nowhere? Let’s develop your deliberate practice.

 

Deliberate Practice: Deliberate practice refers to a special type of practice that is purposeful and systematic. While regular practice might include mindless repetitions, deliberate practice requires focused attention and is conducted with the specific goal of improving performance.

 

Journal Prompts:

What habits would you like to be more deliberate about? Choose habits that you know will bring you closer to feeling good in your body. Be realistic about your choices. If you are currently averaging 0 min of working out a week, start with a 15 min walk.

 

My committed habits are:

 

 

 


 

Habit Ideas: Park further when I go to the grocery store, hydrate daily, move my body in a way that feels good 30-45 min a day at least 3 times a week, daily 5 min meditation, stretch before bed.

 

Goal Setting: The reason we want to stay general with our goals is because many times when we introduce numbers such as weight, we also introduce resistance to the weight-loss process. (This will make more sense later, for now, just trust).

 

Journal Prompts:

What are some non-scale victories you can focus on? Here are some examples: Clothes fitting better/looser, more energy, you feel healthier, you can lift heavier weights, you are stronger, you sleep better, you can keep up with a toddler.

 

The non-scale victories that I will keep track of are:

1.

2.

3.

 

Last but not least, why is all of this important to you? Why are you wanting to go through 30 days of living consciously in your body? Why is the time now and not later?

3/30 How to Unlock The Full Potential of Your Mind with Dr. Joe Dispenza

“You cannot see the way out of a challenge if you are looking at it every day from the same level of mind, emotions, thoughts, and feelings of the past.” -Dr. Joe Dispenza

Do you know how many thoughts your mind thinks each hour of the day? Experts estimate that the mind thinks between 60,000 – 80,000 thoughts a day. That’s an average of 2500 – 3,300 thoughts per hour. Other experts estimate a smaller number, of 50,000 thoughts per day, which means about 2100 thoughts per hour. This too, is a great number of thoughts. Have you stopped to think about the quality of your thoughts?

Dr. Joe Dispenza does an amazing job at explaining how our thoughts influence our life. His personal story can serve as a  great example for many of us. He’s broken down the science and specifics of what it means to break the habit of being yourself. This video you are about to watch will bring awareness to patterns and habits that may be holding you back.

Activity: Watch the following videos

4/30 Self-Reflection/Mindfulness Exercise

“The goal of meditation, isn’t to control your thoughts, it's to stop letting them control you”. - Anyonmous

It’s time to press the pause button. Give yourself some time to be with your thoughts. Far too often we get caught up in staying busy and never truly tune in. Today give yourself that opportunity. If it’s your first time or it feels a little ‘weird’, that’s totally normal. Let’s sit with it and see what comes up. (Ideal to use headphones and be in a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed.)

Activity: Listen to the following video.

Journal Prompt:

 

What did you notice came up for you during this meditation? 

Was there any resistance or discomfort or were you able to really feel into your body?

5/30 Louise Hay: You Can Heal Your Life

“You’ve been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”- Louise Hay

Louise Hay has been one of my greatest teachers. This movie will allow you to step into a new realm of self-love and compassion for yourself and your body. “If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed.” Louise explains how limiting beliefs and ideas are often the cause of illness, and how you can change your thinking and improve the quality of your life! 

 

You Can Heal Your Life by Loiuse Hay is a powerful film! The quality of the movie isn’t the best but the message is there. This was one of the first things that began shifting how I felt about myself, my body and my life.

Activity: Watch the following film.

Journal Prompt:

List your top five takeaways from this film. How can you apply this to your life?

6/30 You Are More Than Just  A Body

“You don't have a Soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.” -C.S. Lewis

If you have been called to participate in this program, there is a deeper part of you that understands that you are more than just your physical body. You are a spiritual being having a human experience. This is why so many factors go into determining what shape your physical Earth suit takes. Our bodies are a reflection of our mental and emotional state. 

 

Today take some time to explore what spirituality means to you.

Journal Prompt:

What does spirituality mean to you?

 

 

Where do you feel the most spiritually connected?

 

 

 

Do you believe that you are a spiritual being having a human experience?

What does “You are more than just a body” mean to you?

7/30 Reflection of First Week

“One step at a time is all it takes to get you there.” - Emily Dickinson

Congrats! You made it through the first week. You have now learned some powerful tools that you will continue to implement throughout the next couple of weeks. I want to encourage you to revisit the videos you’ve been watching and to really grasp the message in each one. Sometimes it takes us a couple of times through to finally hear THE message. You’ll be surprised that every time you replay a video, you’ll catch something new. Although we are only a week in, the mental shifts have already began to take place. Let’s explore what you’ve learned this first week.

Journal Prompt:

Have you noticed any changes in the way you think?

 

What about the way that you talk to yourself?

What are some things that you’ve become aware of?

Has your perspective about yourself and body shifted?

 

It’s only the first week. Congrats on your achievements. If you’re still feeling stuck, don’t worry. Continue to trust the process.

Week 2: Full Body Nourishment (Mind, Body, Spirit)

8/30 Primary and Secondary Food

“All too often it’s the soul that's hungry, not the body.” Gaynor Parke

 Usually when we think about nourishment we think about the foods that we eat. While it’s important to nourish your body with foods that will help you feel great, we need to look beyond our plate. Have you ever followed a diet, liked the results you were getting but you still didn’t feel 100% happy? That’s because the foundation a.k.a your primary food wasn’t set. Having a strong foundation in primary foods looks like having healthy relationships, regular physical activity, a fulfilling career and a spiritual practice.

 

This alone can fill your soul and satisfy your hunger for life. When primary food is balanced and satiating, YOUR LIFE feeds you. Making the actual food that you eat as secondary food.Think back to a time when you were passionately in love. Everything was exciting. Colors were vibrant.  Intimacy was magical. Your lover’s touch and feelings of exhilaration sustained you. You were floating on air, gazing into each other’s eyes. You forgot about food and were high on life. Remember when, as a child, you were playing outside, having fun? Suddenly, your mother announced dinner was ready, but you were not hungry at all. The passion of play took all of your attention.

 

Sometimes we are fed not by food but by the energy in our lives. These moments and feelings provide a different kind of nourishment. When the foundation of our primary food isn’t set, we crave for things that will fulfill us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Sometimes that means over eating, binging, smoking, addictions, ect. Don’t beat yourself up if you’ve searched for primary food in the “wrong” places. As humans, we hunger for play, touch, romance, intimacy, love, achievement, success, art, music,  self-expression, leadership, excitement, adventure and spirituality. All of these elements are essential forms of nourishment.

 

The extent to which we are able to incorporate them determines how enjoyable and worthwhile our lives feel. Remember, nutrition isn't just about being fed with food. But also by being fed emotionally and spiritually through your life experiences. Throughout the next couple of weeks together, you will learn how to create more primary nourishment. Be patient and have compassion with yourself.

9/30 Bio-Individuality and Aligning with Your Nutritional Truth

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

 How many times have you tried losing weight? And how many of those times have you felt that you were unsuccessful? What approach did you take when it came to losing weight? Who’s diet did you follow? Understand that your body is uniquely designed. What works for some people, won’t work for others. Why do you think that there are hundreds, if not thousands of diets out there? It’s because someone tried something, it worked for them and then they went off and made a book or a blog about it. Each of our bodies needs its own special care.

 

Do you realize how everyone thrives on different foods and styles of eating? For some, the best approach is low carb, for others it’s a vegan lifestyle, and others perhaps prefer keto. The possibilities are endless. I can almost assure you that I have tried every diet and eating style out there. I never understood why I was never successful with these diets. And if I was, it was only short term. I tried diet after diet. I lived this way until I found my own truth and what worked for me and my body. Do I regret trying all those diets and eating styles? Nope. Because in the practice of them I found what didn’t work for me and what did. I learned what I liked and what I didn’t like. I learned what made my body feel amazing and what made my body feel... well not so great.

 

Then I understood that me listening to my body was what was going to give me long lasting results. It was going to be me working with my body instead of against it. And this meant taking matters into my own hands. At first it seemed like an overwhelming idea. In the past it had been so easy to just pick up a diet and follow it. Or to just listen to someone else. But truthfully, nobody knows your body like you. To have an outsider come in and assume they know what’s best for you is up for question. Unless it is a medical professional or someone with authority in this matter, then I understand. But even then I encourage you to participate in learning more about what you are being told and feel how that resonates with you. Otherwise you are going to keep handing over your voice and your empowerment over and over again. It wasn’t until I did #90DaysToLivingInAConsciousBody that I came to a point where I was ready to put intention behind my actions. I was determined to find something that would make this process enjoyable (as it should be).

 

If you are trying to lose weight, and you are hating the process, you’re doing it wrong. You’re going against your bodies natural desires. This MUST be a fun learning experience. The reason you get frustrated is because you are not being patient with your process. You are also not being guided in the right direction. The goal of this guide is to steer you and empower you with the right tools. Be patient with yourself. Stop trying to put a deadline on your body and your healing. The truth is, that there is no end goal. This is a lifestyle. Just like many things in life change, so does your body and its needs. View your journey as a puzzle and focus on understanding all the pieces without judgment. When you come into harmony with who you are, the weight-loss process will be much more enjoyable. I am also aware that many of you don’t know where to start when it comes to fitness and nutrition so I will share with you what has worked for me.

Activity: Watch the following video.

Journal Prompts:

It’s no surprise that diets are everywhere. Everyone always has an opinion on what you should and shouldn’t eat. At this point you may be tired, confused and frustrated. Allow yourself to take a step back. Eliminate all rules of what you “should” be doing and start tuning into your bodies needs. Log what you eat for a week. Pay attention to your mood and how the food makes you feel physically. At the end of the week, decide if you want to keep certain foods, maybe decrease portions, or find new alternatives. Start writing your own rules!

 

10/30 A Different Perspective to Infinite Possibilities

“The key to bringing your body into a new place is to see it differently from the way that it is. It is necessary that you focus upon the body that is coming to distract yourself from the aspects of your current physical body, as long as you are seeing your body as it is, you are contradicting the vibration of the idea of a slender body. You cannot create a new reality while looking at your current reality.” Abraham Hicks

 The videos that you are about to listen to offer a whole new and different perspective on weight. Be open to what they have to say. Take what resonates and leave behind what doesn't. Remember, the ideas that are being presented to you are to help you release resistance and get you tuned in with YOUR own truth.

11/30 Loving Your Body

“And I said to my body softly. ‘I want to be your friend.’ it took a long breath and replied ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this.” ― Nayyirah Waheed

The term self-love gets thrown around on a daily basis especially on social media. We are constantly being told to love ourselves but what does that even mean? Self-love means different things to different people. If you don’t know what self-love means for you, don’t worry - we will be exploring that together in the next couple of weeks. In the beginning of my journey, I didn’t understand how to ‘love myself’. The concept didn’t really make sense in my head. However, something that did make sense was gratitude. I had a new appreciation for my body that I didn’t have before and although I didn’t live it, I was grateful for it.

Journal Prompts:

Make a list of all the amazing things your body does for you and the things that you appreciate about it (the fact that your heart never stops beating, the legs that carry you through your everyday life, your eyes, your hands, your hair.)

Use this evaluation to decide what you want to change about your personal beliefs. A lot of times we don’t realize how negative or self-destructive our beliefs are. Many times, it’s these beliefs that keep us stuck. When we can take a step back and see our belief system with fresh eyes, we can take a new approach.

Journal Prompts:

Make a list of all the beliefs you hold around weight. Are there some beliefs that you would like to shift?

 

Were you surprised by any of them?

 

How or when did you create this belief?

How will you shift it?

 

13/30 Identify Where You Are and What You Need


“Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you”

By now I hope that you understand that we are all so different. Your personal needs are constantly changing depending on where you are in life. It’s important to tune into what you need at this moment so that you can gain clarity on what to focus on next. When we are scrambled in our thoughts it’s difficult to take action on the things that matter. This clarity will help you navigate through your journey with less resistance.

Activity: Circle the answer(s) that best resonate with you at this moment in time.

 

In this moment I need: 

  1. A meal plan that I can follow

  2. I need to learn more about nutrition and how it works in my body

  3. I need a flexible yet structured approach (tracking macros is a great tool)

  4. An intuitive teaching approach

  5. Less structure when in comes to meals

  6. More structure when it comes to meals

  7. I need to let go of a lot of fear based beliefs when it comes to food 

 

In this moment I need:

  1. A workout plan that I can follow

  2. Start by moving my body a couple minutes a day

  3. Find a class or a gym that I like

  4. Find home workouts

  5. Discover what form of movement my body needs/wants

 

It’s important to tune into what you need in the now so that we can bring the gap between where you are and where you want to be. There are no shortcuts in understanding your body. You must master one phase before moving onto the next.

Many times we are trying to fit a mold and we don’t even know why. For me, being thin meant "happily ever after" but I soon realized that belief wasn't true. Even at my thinnest, I was unhappy with my body. For me, being in a smaller meant acceptance, it meant love and understanding. It was a belief that I held so strongly that I was willing to do whatever I had to do to be ‘skinny’ EVEN if it was harmful to my health.

16/30 Healing The Younger Yous

"All healing is first a healing of the heart." - Carl Townsend

We are multidimensional beings. All of these dimensions play an important role in our life and they all intertwine. You can’t have one without the other. You can’t heal the body without healing the soul and you can’t heal the soul without releasing the emotional memories from the body.

 

There are a couple of ways to release emotional memories from the body. My favorite (and the one I use with my clients) is through guided meditation. It’s important to understand that the body remembers even after our brain has ‘deleted’ or suppressed the memory or event. These memories and traumas have a physiological base in and around your body and are still part of your daily operating system. 

 

These memories are stored in something called bio-photons. Bio-photons are itty bitty tiny points of light that makeup your body. Releasing these memories from your body may result in weight-loss, it can help you understand where your binging is coming from, it can liberate you and set you free. I am going to give you the tools so that you can start releasing these memories from your body and you can start living a happy and healthy life. This method of releasing emotional memories from the body was taught to me by my teacher and mentor Kelly Schwegel. It is called ‘Healing The Younger Yous’ and it is typically done through a guided meditation. I will leave you with two different versions of the meditation.
