Extraordinary Health = Extraordinary Life!

“In order to live an extraordinary life, you need Extraordinary Healthy!!! ” Kate Northrup

I was on a Facebook Live business training last Saturday when Kate said the above quote. It really stuck with me. I came down with the flu which lingered on for two weeks.  I haven’t been sick like that for years. I take really good care of myself. Many people around me have had high fevers. I didn’t have that. It pays to take eat well, take your supplements, exercise and sleep!

You really appreciate having good health when you are sick.

I am back! How is your health?

Would you like to have more energy? Are you tired of feeling bloated and achy? Suffering from Hot flashes? Are you craving sugar, salty carbs or caffeine in the afternoon?

Aging Optional?

Did you see the video from yesterday about our 7 Day Program to feeling Fabulous?  LOOK at my face! Yikes!

It was a little concerning and hard to post. I am 62 and can do kick ass Burpees. I feel great and I have tons of energy. When I saw my face in the video yesterday, to be honest it set me back a bit.

I am in a great time of my life.  I created this blog a few years ago and I have people who don’t know me following me. I have women who are between 40 and 79 that get up on a Saturday morning, 23 degrees and windy to workout with me. I have people who join my nutritional program and give up grains, sugar and alcohol to feel better. I recommend the best supplements and they take them.

I have a wonderful supportive family.

I am very grateful for all of it. So what are a few wrinkles and aged spots? Embrace where you are in your life! I tell myself I am a natural beauty. I am going with that.

Do you drink enough water?

I posted in the 7 Days…Feel Fabulous Group about the importance of drinking water. It is such a simple thing to do. It is easy, just set the intention.

Note to self. Drink half your body weight in water. If you weigh 140 lbs you need to be drinking 70 oz of water daily. I know when I drink that amount I feel better.

Amy who is in the group posted that she drinks 6- 12 oz glasses a day. She puts 6 pennies in a pile and every time she drinks 12 oz she moves a penny and creates another pile. Great idea Amy! Look what I did today. Of course, a straw always adds to the Fun!

2 down...4 to go!

Sleep through the night!

I slept through the night last night. What a blessing!

Yesterday, I went out to lunch with my sisters, Mom and Dad. We are celebrating Mom’s birthday which is Saturday. We are having a dinner then. Yesterday was just a sneak preview. Coming off my 30 Days of no gluten, sugar, alcohol I have decided to be very mindful of what I am eating and drinking.

My family all had wine with lunch and dessert. I  had a wonderful time.  I had a club soda with lemon and lime and coffee with no dessert. It didn’t bother me at all. I didn’t feel like I was missing anything. It feels like a HUGE Break through!

Last night with dinner, I enjoyed my glass of wine. AND I slept through the night. I know keeping in Balance is Key!

Love The Ghee!

I started making ghee a few months ago when I decided to increase the fat in my diet. I LOVE IT! I blend it in my morning coffee with coconut oil. I sauteed apple and nuts in ghee to add to my breakfast. I sauteed tofu, cashews and rosemary in it for an afternoon snack. It makes everything delicious!

Adding more fat to your diet, helps your hormones stay in balance.

  • Ghee has a high smoke point. It is excellent to cook with.
  • Ghee is rich in Vitamin A, D and E.
  • Ghee can be used by people with dairy sensitivity. The lactose and casein is removed during the straining process.
  • Ghee made from happy grass fed cows contain CLA, Conjugated linoleic acid. CLA may actually reduce blood pressure, cholesterol and tumors. It has also been helpful in weight loss, reducing inflammation and body fat.
  • Ghee contains Butyrate which may improve colon health and digestion.

The best part, it is DELICIOUS and you can keep it on your counter in a pretty Ball jar!

Embrace The Ghee

Embrace The Ghee

It is easy to make ghee. Take a pound of organic unsalted butter, (grass fed butter is even better) and put it in a pot on a low temperature. I let it cook for about 15 minutes and strain it through cheese cloth to remove all of the toxins from the butter. My friend Dr. Deb Kern has a great video on making ghee. She loves to chant and send out goodness while the ghee is simmering. It is a spiritual practice for her.

Balance Your Hormones Day 10!

I am thinking of changing the name of the program to Happy Healthy Hormones! I am feeling so much better. I am sleeping well which is SO KEY to all of this. I have tons of energy which I usually do but I feel more grounded and less agitated.

I did give up on the green tea in the morning instead of coffee. It felt too depressing to me. I LOVE my coffee blended in the morning with coconut oil and ghee. I am going with it.

This week end I made grain free granola. The recipe is from Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain cookbook. I didn’t use a dehydrator. I baked it in the oven at 250 for 2 hours. The recipe called for 3/4 maple syrup. I reduced to 1/2 cup. (Not sugar free) I did portion it into small jars. A treat for the weekend.against-all-grain

I like to portion things out to prevent overeating.

I still miss my glass of wine but it is getting easier.

It is not too late to join in …  Gluten, sugar and alcohol free for 30 days! So much easier with friends! Dr. Northrup says we will feel changes quickly. Balanced hormones are key to fabulous health!

All you need to do is follow me on facebook or instagram. I will be posting and I hope you will be too!

Balance Your Hormones Day 7!

7 days in…

I enjoy a glass of wine when I go to cook dinner.  Now that I am off alcohol, dinner time feels stressful to me. I am looking for ways to make this process easy.

My friend Ivone gave me her crock pot. (She updated her crock pot. A nice ALL-ClAD.) I am thrilled to have her old one. Ivone is an amazing cook. It is great karma to have her crock pot!

10 o’clock this morning I made slow-cooker beef chuck chili. Danielle Walker’s recipe from Against All Grains. (Page 96) It is a nice easy recipe. Our dinner will be all set! against-all-grain

I have also been blending up “GOOD GIRL MOONSHINE”.  I found it on Pinterest last year when I was looking for a wine replacement.

good-girl-moonshine

(Google good girl moonshine. I am not sure where the original recipe came from.)

Planning and Preparation are important component to Balance.

Happy Planning.

Balance Your Hormones Day 5!

 

I have noticed that I am sleeping better now that I am 5 days in.  No gluten, sugar or alcohol.

Sleep tips!

Try to get in bed at the same time every night. 10 o’clock is good.

Avoid alcohol.

Easy on the caffeine.

Exercise but not at bedtime.

Don’t watch the news before bed time.

Take an Epsom salt bath.

Here is my bedtime affirmation. “I am calm. I sleep peacefully through the night.” Try it out tonight and let me know how it works.

Sweet dreams.

Love,

Mary
