I feel a shift. It is all coming together. In the flow… 2 months ago I decided to increase the fat in my diet. I put coconut oil in my coffee and avocados in my morning smoothie. I have decreased the waffles, bread and pasta in my life. AND THE BLESSING ? It has been easy.
The Benefits? I feel good, I am sleeping better, NEWS FLASH… sometimes through the night! I have lost a few pounds. The bloat is gone and my menopausal belly is shrinking. BONUS ROUND. I am off my bio-identical hormones! Friends are starting to tell me that I LOOK GREAT!
I am not telling you all of this to brag. I am telling you this because it is possible for you too!
More info? Here is a video that I created for Team Northrup and the MY JUMP START program. (The 7 day JUMPSTART Kit is coming out soon.)
I will keep you posted. Are you looking for an excellent protein base now? 0 grams of sugar. I have been using the soy base this week. I know it is non-gmo and Pure! It is good to switch things up.

FAT AND CANCER: SHOULD WE BE WORRIED?
I have increased my fat quite a bit in the last ten days. It is important to eat high quality healthy fats. For example, I am having coconut oil in my coffee every morning and eating an avocado daily. I feel grounded, less bloated, less hungry and it has been easier not to overeat.
I am very interested in all of this. I am putting together a 28 day test group to see what the effects are. My intention is to lose a few pounds, reduce the menopausal belly and feel absolutely fabulous! Would you like to join me?

I am trying something new. Have you heard of intermittent fasting? How about putting butter in your coffee?
I am getting up at 6 am and making an organic cup of french roast coffee in my french press pot and adding a TBS of my delicious ghee. I made ghee from the unsalted Kerry Gold Irish butter the last time. SO CREAMY AND DELICIOUS! I enjoy the coffee and walk George the dog a mile. I am getting some exercise without eating.
Coffee with ghee!
After taking Thomas to his program at 9 am, I come home and have breakfast. I haven’t eaten for 14 hours. It is a completely different thought process of having breakfast first thing in the morning. I know many wait until later but for now I am hungry at 9 and I feel like I better eat something!
This was my breakfast this morning. An organic granny smith apple, organic cottage cheese , almond butter and sprinkled with cinnamon.
Grain Free and delicious!
A three minute video. What do you think? Have you tried this? It is a process.

Are you local? Spring is a perfect time to start a fitness program.! Change things up…a new beginning! Here is the schedule to my workouts. Let me know ahead of time if you are coming. (Sometimes the schedule changes.)
I have been reading GET RICH LUCKY BITCH!:Release your money blocks and live a first class life by Denise Duffield Thomas
The title is a bit crass but I love the book. Denise gets right to the point. She wants you to focus on making money, to keep track of what is coming in. I have done lots of work on what is going out. The key is to focus on what you want. I have a tablet on my refrigerator and I write down everything I bring in. A penny on the street is worth picking up celebrating and writing it on the pad according to Thomas.
I wanted to share from her book.
THE MANIFESTING FORMULA

Decide exactly what you want.
Surround your life with positivity.

Yesterday, my bank was giving out free polka dot socks! I thought it was an excellent sign! #cashflow
It is 2016. It is time for me to get my financial house in order. I am 61. My life has been family oriented. I am very fortunate because I was and am a stay at home Mom. My husband worked and took care. Our son Thomas 26 and developmentally disabled lives at home. I have worked through out my life but always on a part time basis and for myself so I could set my working hours around the needs of my family.
Now, I want to create my own substantial income. This is one part of my life that has been missing. I need to know that I can do this. I am expanding my focus from Healthy and Fit to Healthy, Wealthy and Fit. Healthy and Fit I have a handle on. Financial well being is certainly related to health.
So much more to come!
“Nothing is more empowering than getting control over your spending, your money beliefs, and your cash flow. And nothing is more thrilling than seeing your bank account grow as a result of these changes. Anyone can take the same steps I’ve taken to achieve peace of mind and better financial and physical health. The first step is simply knowing you can do it! ” Dr. Christiane Northrup
