My journey of health has not been a straight shot. It has not been a matter of me duplicating someone else’s way of eating or workout plan.
In 2014, I decided to boldly take responsibility for my own health and in that time, I have had many ups and downs, specifically when it came to my weight.
In 2014, I also became a Beachbody coach. I quit in 2017 and then came back in 2018. When I left, I left because I struggled with the duplication and trying to fit into a box I no longer fit in.
I didn’t know how to resolve the question, “How do I do it my own way when someone else’s way isn’t working?”
I still believed in the products. I still believed in the opportunity. I was just no longer available for doing anything in an inauthentic way and network marketing was no exception.
When I returned in 2018, I dropped the need for it to look a certain way. I dropped the checklist, the invites, the cold messages, team calls, and any company-based milestone that was supposed to mean success.
I simply wanted to have access to tools I had personally used to offer to my clients also needing to make a change.
In 2019, I ditched portion control and the color-coded containers that come with all the programs. My body wasn’t responding and I was only getting more and more frustrated. I decided to seek out another way of eating.
That’s when I came across Medical Medium’s protocol. I read his first book and started with celery juice and the heavy metal detox smoothie. I was on a mission to heal my body. I knew the weight I had gained was simply my body’s way of telling me it needed to heal on a level I couldn’t see.
Since then, I have committed to celery juice and the heavy metal detox smoothie daily. I’ve reduced my fats, cut out meat and eggs (I had already cut out dairy and grains on a Paleo diet), and increased fruits and veggies. In December of 2019, I did my first 3:6:9 liver rescue cleanse and I’m currently on multiple back to back rounds and seeing progress in how my body is transforming.
For me, Beachbody workouts and nourishing my body through Medical Medium’s protocol seems to be the sweet spot.
Whatever your struggles are, just know there is a path that works for you if you’re willing to pay attention to the resources you’re being led to!
