Lent Day 39 – A Body that Heals, A Body that Feels!

Hiii!

Today is Day 2 of our 7 Day Free Trial A Life in Balance. A few words on our story. As you might know, if you’ve been reading this blog or following our pages, I designed this diet, for my husband who is a Lyme disease patient. His MD had prescribed a diet based on this principles, and my hubby was having a bit of a hard tme making odds and ends of the food lists. So, I jumped in and designed it for him.

The nutritional design was courtesy of his MD, the creative marriage of lists mine, the fitness part is my hubby’s design. I’ll tell you later about the design of the rest of the programs.

Why we insist on weight-loss and fitness first? Well, because diet has been the pattern breaker for me, and a healer for my love! Literally a pattern breaker above and beyond losing weight. Yes, some pounds started coming off the scale within 3 weeks, a very typical result on this kind of program. BUT the pattern broke! I slept better, felt more energized, finally said bye-bye to my allergies, IBS and GERD. So, the better I felt the more  I wanted to do and achieve.  Being symptom free, soon translated in feeling everything else in my body. My focus increased too. I was on a back treatment at that moment, so I could not exercise for a couple of months. Which is why fitness came second, for my specific case.

For that reason, on today’s challenge I want to share with you the power of eating clean and some routines around it…

Routine 1 – Have 1 glass of luke-warm water and the juice of 1 lime first thing in the morning or ! glass of baking soda water.

Eating clean means no processed or pre-packaged foods. It means ZERO (or close to) preservatives. No sugar and little salt. Which in turn, means better sleep patterns, more energy and no after-meal drowsiness. We will keep on insisting on that.

Routine 2Walk 10 – 20 minutes after every meal. Movement is key! It’s key to fitness, to energy flow and for any sustained change.

Routine 3 – Gratitude is the best attitude! Be thankful for everything you have, in every moment of every single day!

Happy soaring!

Lent day 15 – Healthy, Tasty, Green?

Hello again!

This Lent program is about getting closer to God, right? And just yesterday I was speaking about loving yourself, what better way to love yourself and be closer to God than cleansing your eating habits so you eat as closer as He had originally intended?

And that’s exactly what this plan is about!

This is our diet in a few lines:

  1. Avoid all packaged and pre-processed foods but sausage, bacon, cold cuts and canned salmon or tuna. (Look for the ones low in sodium)
  2. Reduce your carb intake and eliminate anything that is white: pasta, rice, sugar. if it’s white, it’s processed unless it’s coconut skin or snow.
  3. Eliminate or dramatically reduce simple carbs such as: potatoes, white rice and legumes as they turn into sugar in your blood.
  4. Pack up on veggies and fruit.
  5. Eat healthy amounts of protein and fat.
  6. Spice it up! Add spices to your foods they have tons of properties that will help you lose weight and feel great!

These 5 points will allow for you to have a balanced diet,  gain focus, and feel more energetic than ever before!

Oh, the picture is of one of my favorite “green” smoothies – iced or warm coffee (not hot), cream and a handful of nuts to the blender. Mix. Enjoy!

Happy soaring!

Lent Day 11 – Light Your Shine

Hello!

So diet, fitness, fasting, planning… To get closer to God and fulfill your mission in life. Going over your three top priorities.

  • Who are you praying to and what are you praying for? Step one to shine. Recognize God as your source. You are a channel and an intermediary to do His wonders through your specific set of skills.
  • Who are you loyal to? This plan is a call to get back to nature and free from toxins. I hope your answer to this question is yourself. As I pointed out yesterday, without your body and your soul yu have no humanity to continue with your mission in this existance.
  • Who are you working for? Humanity. Making a difference. Contributing in non economic ways. I would hope that would be the line of your answer and not one of the modern symbols like dough, recognition or positon. A powerful vision, inspired by your Godly designed mission, will not only pull you out of bed when you’ve hada a bad day; it will allso keep you young, inspired and speading abundance.

If you answer these three questions every day, before you start your day. You will have a clear vision of what is really important in your life. Ah, you ight say I’m missing all to do with relationships. Righ? Well, all charity starts at home and you cannot give what you don’t have. So take care of these three, first. Not only, just first.

Homework:

Write your to do list. In front of it, in a separate column, write down your priorities, or those things that you consider important. Not urgent IMPORTANT.

Happy Sunday!

INTO THE LOOKING GLASS 101 – CREATING NEW HABITS.

Hi!

I hope your spirit is starting to soar!

As you all know, I did a liquid fast yesterday and I feel very energized today!

It is said that the way to create a new habit is to do anything for 21 days. So… 40 should be even better! If you’re anything like I am, you might have created habits in longer than that and broken them in the end because something else (like work, traffic, etc.) got in the way.

So, here’s my tip: build micro habits and stack up on them. For example – meditate for 7 minutes. If you need to, set an alarm as a reminder but try to have as little time of preparation/ transport as possible. And keep a schedule (as a guideline) For example:

Meditation/ Prayer or both! I, personally practice both.

Instead of having to prepare music, cushion, mat, etc…

Try… Concentrating on your breathing instead of music, If you kneel or sit on a lotus flower have a cushion ready by your bed or preferred spot.

Around those micro habits build rituals. By a ritual I do not mean incense and candle burning, not necessarily. What I mean by rituals is for example:

Get up, first thing in the AM give thanks and pray or meditate. THEN drink warm tea or lemon water while… exercise and so on.

Build a schedule AROUND those rituals which represent your most important to do’s If you tackle everyday what is important you will prevent it from becoming urgent. Do the same with your work/business to do items, taking care of the 3 most important at a time. The rest will take care of itself, please believe me on this one…. Or better try it for 1 week. 3 most important, every day. You’ll see the difference!

How do you find the most important? First, take care of yourself: Body, Mind, Soul which is why we suggest exercise, diet and meditation and/or prayer. Get the idea? Remember that without having yourself, you will have nothing… which is also why you should love God first, yourself immediately after and your kindred next.

Should you have any questions or if you would like to book a free 30 min coaching session, please feel free to contact me at: angelica@afinfinity.com

Happy Growth!

Have a lovely afternoon!

Day 3 – The power to be Me!

Hello!

This is the last day of fasting! I hope it’s got you feeling great! And how are your goals going? Remember, any question you might want to ask, please feeel free to contact  us here or at: angelica@afinfinity.com.

Keep the Wheel of Life handy, we’ll be working with it tomorrow! No Manifestation Challenge would be complete with two key elements, with which we’ll be working today.

  1. Gratitude is THE Attitude! Start a gratitude journal, or ritual. I prefer the journal because it is more powerful in the way it generates more awareness. In any case give thanks either every morning or every evening of 3 things you are grateful for either out loud or written down in your journal. It is ideal that these 3 things are different every day.  It has been said that when you reach 99 different things your life will be truly blessed, or more clearly, YOU will realize that YOU ARE Blessed.
  2. Self love. Let me stop here for a moment. the title for today’s article is the power to be me. Right? Well, in this case me is YOU. 🙂 One of the largest keys for personal development, manifesting and living a goodlife. Self love is of the utmost importance, but not as narcisism but as the taking care of yourself, setting clear boundaries to whatever and whoever isi blocking your development and spending time actually loving yourself. Taking care of yourself means eating right, exercising, taking care of your emotions to keep the vibes up.  Build a vision board with all of your postive traits, Repeat to yourself I love yourself as often as you can. Meditate on self love and self acceptance.

Have fun with this challenge as I will share some adventurous things to love yourself more in the coming days.

Keep on building up the good work! See you tomorrow and may 2018 be the year you forever change your life!

Cheers!

Food Balance and AKA Benefits

Hello Everyone!

Yesterday I was having a very interesting conversation with an obesity and Type 2 diabetes expert. He was voicing his concerns about this kind of diet, and was telling me how some of his colleagues had faced problems by taking up on similar plans. For that reason, today I would like to share with you the roots to this kind of dietary lifestyle and the benefits that come from it.

As you have perhaps already read in this page, this is based on diet guidelines as presrcibed by an MD, I made it yeast free, alkaline and ayurvedic to boost the benefits of his plan (already alkaline and ketogenic).

This program is therefore, a low-carb, high-fat and moderate protein one. This means zero pre-packaged and processed foods (but a few canned ones). It also means you will et to eat whole foods rich in fat and proteins ALONG with Fruits and Veggies. This consists on a balanced diet minus simple carbs and cereals. For more guidelines on which foods to choose from, check our food list ==>> Here.

Now for the benefits, alkaline diets were created to prevent your body from getting ill; as fungi, viruses and bacteriae cannot live in an alkaline environment. So we pick alkaline foods. The benefits of a ketogenic approach are quite more extensive and to ennumerate some
