Halfway! Here I am!
For those who haven’t seen my original post on #100DaysOfHealthy, I have a list containing 11 items, and I plan to start each item on a new week and report back the changes I see throughout that week. Once I start an item on the list, I will continue it until the 100 days is over. Hopefully each item will become a lifestyle change if I think it’s worthy.
Day 50 was actually yesterday, but I might’ve fallen asleep in the midst of prepping the post before publishing it. Oops! Such is life.
I feel like the first half of my #100DaysOfHealthy challenge has been difficult and contained a lot of struggle, specifically with cutting out sugar. Aside from that, it’s definitely had an extremely positive impact on my health, physically and mentally. If you go through my posts (in the Healthy Lifestyle tab above) about each item on my list, you can tell. And I can only imagine how much more of an impact these items will have on me once the ‘back and forth’ battle subsides completely.
I have a feeling these last 50 days will consist of me locking down–mind over body. Because that’s all it is.
This week was item #6 on my list, “Take supplements.” I’m a huge advocate of the CORRECT kind of supplements, and I say “correct” because many of the generic and store bought supplements use synthetic ingredients and contain several times the amount of “vitamins” your body actually knows what to do with or can process.
I recommend Standard Process because they use real and natural ingredients along with a logical and correct amount of each ingredient. Although I’ve done my personal research on supplements, and specifically Standard Process, I’m not a nutritionist, I haven’t taken classes and can’t tell an individual exactly what’s best for them or even 100% myself, which is why I have a nutritionist who’s dedicated her entire life to health since she battled and won a fight against cancer over 20 years ago. She’s taken more health and Standard Process seminars and classes than just about anyone in her field and is always on point with her health consultations. I can tell from personal experience and know several others as well who can say the same. Her name is Vicki Belcher, and she’s my mother. This is her website which contains ways to contact her for those who are interested in getting help with just about anything health related: nutrition, supplements, acupressure, massage, essential oils, thermography, BioMat therapy, etc.
I took a specific regimen throughout my pregnancy of Standard Process supplements which consisted of all the vitamins and nutrition a generic prenatal vitamin would and more. My regimen has been tweaked a little since having my babe in June but I’ve stopped taking them until this week and can already tell a pretty drastic difference, especially mentally. When I take my supplements consistently, I’m always amazed by how much clearer I think, quicker I react and how much more energy I have throughout he day, and this time is no different.
So, that’s been the benefits of this week. I’ve now started item #7, “Oil pulling.” I’ll update you soon!
