Happy Monday! On the way to Trader Joe’s to get groceries so we figured we’d stop at our fav place @frenchmeadowcafe since it’s so close by 😋 I got the avocado toast 🥑 with 2 poached eggs & coconut oolong tea. Now a busy day of meal prep, the gym, and seeing a friend I haven’t seen in awhile tonight. Hope you all have a great day!
Eczema and any other skin condition is so exhausting to live with. It can consume every minute of your life. It doesn't help that if you research eczema there is no known cure in the medical world 🌎I was told I would look like I did for the rest of my life, and the only way I could control it was by using steroid creams and tablets 🤦🏼♀️ I created this account for two reasons:
1️⃣to share hope that you can heal naturally from chronic mystery illness such as eczema 2️⃣ to raise awareness of the dangers of using steroids to control your condition.
I see sooooo many people every day going through steroid induced eczema / steroid withdrawal and it literally breaks my heart 😭people shouldn't have to go through this, if only these drugs came with more warnings and doctors were more aware of the side affects 😔 I completely understand why people take steroids to control their eczema, I did... why wouldn't you want silky smooth skin? I remember taking 6 steroid tablets a day and waking up the next morning with clear glowing skin, unfortunately the benefits are short lived, and my body became addicted to them over the period of 6 months. It craved more steroids, stronger steroids and I got them - quite easily from my doctor, but the eczema kept coming back worse, after endless sleepless nights researching steroids, I stoped taking them.... my body went into complete shock and I ended up looking like this for months if not years 😱
I am no doctor, nutritionist or qualified in anyway, (plz do your own research ) but did spend years of my life trying to cure my condition naturally I must have tried and tested over 100 diets, supplements, creams, pills.... 😂🙈🤦🏼♀️PLANTS are the only way my body healed. And that's through following advice from @medicalmedium I drink lemon water, celery juice, heavy metal detox smoothies, I've increased my intake of raw fruits and vegetables, I changed to a plant based diet, I've decreased my fat intake, I don't eat anything processed. Yes it's time consuming and often I just want to be 'normal' but this lifestyle is normal for me now the way my body responds is soooo amazing and so worth the time spent juicing and preparing! 😂
I went to Vegas for the weekend. Not much of what I did was “healthy” or wellness related. I did have one green smoothie and also did a 20-minute yoga class in my hotel room thanks to @kait.hurley. Otherwise I dressed up in faux fur and wigs, danced until 3am, didn’t get much sleep, drank tequila, ate processed food and didn’t abide by any dietary restrictions.
Remember this: wellness is not perfection. Honestly sometimes I think that the wellness industry is just the diet culture 2.0. It can put so much stress on us to strive for perfection.
You must: eat clean, meditate, move your body everyday, follow trends that may not be right for your body, develop self-care rituals and the list goes on. If I were to always eat food that fit into a perfect box of wellness, I’d have to isolate myself socially and would be constantly consumed with thoughts of food. I definitely wouldn’t enjoy Vegas shenanigans with my friends and not caring about food or seeking out the healthiest options.
I also wouldn’t be doing my job as a Health Coach. I always tell my clients to leave perfection at the door, because it doesn’t exist. Your path to health and wellness is guided by your own definition and no one else’s. This will evolve, it will grow and change. We are intuitive beings who often ignore instinct in our quest for perfection. We ignore hunger, we cancel plans with friends, we force ourselves out of bed at 5am for a workout class that we are too tired to go to. Being intuitive is not just about what you eat. It’s more holistic than that. Maybe I’ll call it intuitive wellness and leave it at that ✨✌🏼

Do you have any podcast recommendations? I’m a huge podcast listener and I did a round up of what I’m loving lately up on the blog. I have some listed on there that are good for personal growth and also great for the entrepreneur. ☺️ Would love to see what you guys are into! #ontheblog#podcasts

Having strong shoulders can help improve posture as well as increase shoulder mobility to help easily perform everyday tasks such as lifting, throwing a baseball ⚾️ or reaching across the table. Strong shoulders can also help prevent injuries to the rotator cuff especially during chest and back day when we tend to lift heavier! 💪🏻
Two of my favourite shoulder moves are:
Military press which emphasizes the anterior deltoid and works core stability (and who doesn’t want a little extra core work 😂🤷🏼♀️) Upright rows: are one of the best muscle builders for the back and shoulders. They work the anterior and medial dears as well as the traps and rhomboids!
