Stack the odds in your favor
Hi Crazy Sexy Cherished Friends!
Last night was the first Crazy Sexy Bootcamp at the New York Open Center and it ROCKED like Springsteen! I’ll be blogging all week about the nuggets of the night – boundaries, breath, nutrition, CanSer Posses, Survivorship, creating your own Save My Ass Tech. Inc, and more tips for headbutting fear. So let’s dive in nude!
Let Desperation lead to Inspiration and Education……
Unravel these ideas in this mantra in order to make a kick ass healing game plan. You don’t have to be a canSer patient (spelled wrong to annoy it) to benefit from this mini advice-from-the-trenches. This is about life and LIFE is a frickin’ Juggernaut of Gorgeous, Staggering, Messy, Brilliant, YES, NO, Holy Cow, Holy Shit, champagne supernova, love, loss and learning. The only thing you have to bring to this experience is the willingness to be FEARLESS…
Fantabulous Tip O’ The Day:
Eat your Veggies and Shake Your Ass Rock Star!
No one knows more about you than you. Create your Owners Manual. Check in daily. Do a body scan and make adjustments accordingly. We need to be our own medical, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual advocates. Your body IS a temple and your mouth is the ALTAR. When we tune in to the temple we can access our own inner pharmaceutical lab. We can move the Rocky Mountains!
This is what helps me, I am vegan and I follow a mostly raw foods diet. Since I changed the way I eat I have seen big changes in my overall health. Even though I still have a completely stable canSer, I feel awesome! But it’s important to do your homework and understand how to eat this way. You can be what I call a “muffin vegetarian” and feel pretty tired and lousy. In my experience, a vibrant and effective vegan or vegetarian diet means that the majority of your food source comes from veggies! If you don’t want to veg head (although veggies are tres sexy) can you cut back on the chops and properly food combine for better digestion? Can ya eat smaller portions of elbows and tushies and surround your plate with greens for more alkalinity? Um, yes. There is always, always a way to participate Yo!
Here’s a little science: the body maintains a delicate PH balance. Basically, by eating a more alkaline diet (leafy greens, veggies, fruits and juicing) as opposed to an acidic diet (high in animal products, processed foods and starch) we flood our bodies with chlorophyll, oxygen, enzymes, vitamins and minerals. As the Nobel Prize winning genius Dr. Otto Warburg said, no disease can live in an oxygen-rich environment. Now that’s food for thought! Junk goes in and junk comes out. If it’s invented in a laboratory it will take a laboratory to digest it! If it has a shelf life longer than yours, DON’T eat it!
1. Get back to nature and back to the garden.
2. Shake your booty.
3. Eat the right alkaline foods that supply your body with oxygen and enzymes.
4. Drink pure water.
5. Give your colon a regular spring cleaning.
6. Keep the stress level down and the joy factor up.
7. Snooze. Snooze. Snooze.
Now get outside Angel Head a Go-Go! Walk or trott. Start the engines running on that juicer! If you don’t have a juicer get your cute butt to Target or your local go-to chain and swipe the card! Stack the odds in your favor loves. We all can make a difference in our inner and outer worlds. I’m off to make my green drink (cukes, celery, kale, sweet pea sprouts- anything GREEN).
Peace and veggies!
PS. Post any questions on nutrition ya want. If I don’t know how to answer them I’ll ask my kick butt chow guru mentors. Let’s figure this bee-atch out! SMOOCH!
