“IT TAKES HARD WORK, DEDICATION, TRUSTING THE PROCESS AND YOU BELIEVING IN YOURSELF TO KEEP GOING.”
A whole year can change a lot about a person, & this is what my year consisted of:
- One Year of no meat (animal products)
- One Year of no dairy
- One Year of no gluten
- One Year of no alcohol
- One Year of no processed sugar
- One Year of staying ‘fat free’ most days
- One Year of eating fruits and vegetables
- One Year of no medications
- One Year of making and drinking Celery Juice every day (well almost every day, hey I’m not perfect!)
- One Year of following the Medical Medium Protocols (tailored to my healing)
One whole year of coming back to the person I was always meant to become. And boy what a wild ride its been so far.
Was it easy? Hell no this was not easy. Was it worth it? 100%, yes this was worth it, and I would do it all over again because of where I am now. It took a lot of dedication, a lot of saying no to things and just being by myself. A lot of making all of my own food, meditating, Journaling, reading all of the Medical Medium books and figuring out what works and what doesn’t work for me, what I could eat and what I couldn’t. I took everything I thought I knew about nutrition and threw that shit out the window. I sat with my thoughts, emotions and feelings and figured out why I was feeling the way I was feeling and let them come and go. I took the time to understand my body and how it reacts to certain things, experiences and situations. It took a lot of me knowing in my heart that this path that I chose for myself was working, even when people had other things to say about it. I know they were all coming from the heart when they tried to help me, but I just stuck to what I was doing because I knew, I just knew that I was going to get better in time. I had a lot of ups and downs, a lot of symptoms and emotions and feelings happening through out my healing process. I didn’t just change the way I was eating, I changed my whole life style. There are things that I used to do a year ago that no longer resonate with me anymore, and that is okay.
This journey is not easy. I am still healing each and every day but I am in a better place than I was one year ago. What I did learn was that the things worthwhile in life do not come easy. It takes hard work, dedication, trusting the process and you believing in yourself to keep going. It does get easier the more you stick to it and you figure things out on your own. This year has taught me to be patient, be in the present moment and really just be grateful for everything in life. Never, ever, be afraid of who you truly are, even if you go against the grain.
I know I am not perfect and I am still working on myself. I know I have had some of the ‘no foods’ MM talks about this past year, and I am sure I’ve been exposed to or consumed something that hasn’t benefitted me. But I am pretty proud of myself for how far I’ve come. If you would’ve told me a year ago that I would become completely plant-based and eat copious amounts of fruits and vegetables, I would’ve laughed and said that you were crazy. But boy am I glad I took the leap.
FUN FACT about me now: The most bananas I have had in a day would be 16 bananas =) And I feel amazing. Don’t let the sugar in fruit scare you, its the glucose your body needs.
