The rosacea is getting better? Slowly. I have been trying to heal from the inside. There is a spiritual component to all of this and it has taken me a while to see that. It might be embarrassing to admit, but I needed to burn out. I needed to experience ego death. I am still learning that - to love myself, so I can love others. I want to help, not save. No one likes a savior. Saviors cannot be loved; they're mythic, ephemeral creatures. That's not me, I chose to be on Earth at this time. It is easy to project judgment, when happiness is lacking or there is or reproach for oneself. No more compensating. I am, I do, I try. I am at the moment of accepting, but the next step comes action. What to? I'm feeling deeply to try to figure that out.
I realize that the goal for me is spiritual development. That's what this whole journey has been about and I did not see that until just recently. Perfection is external, unreachable, and I do not need it. God is within and never lost.
Fasting, calcium+ magnesium +vitamin D3 + MK7 & zinc + vitamin C supplement have made a big difference. Fat malabsorption is no longer an ongoing problem, as long as I get lots of calcium+magnesium in.
I look like a painting here. Maybe it's the lighting? I've been going on months of 5 hours of sleep most nights. It's so much easier to get up in the morning now that I'm #vegan - I find that I need less sleep. I feel amazing.
A few strangers have come up to me in the past month and a half to say that they felt my presence when I entered a room and it was very strong. One even said I had a strong aura. It makes sense, I have been feeling profound peace and at times euphoria when I eating 1 meal per day in the month of October. Perhaps, people could sense how I was feeling. I felt more joy and more love. More complete within myself.
I'm glowing. I'm at peace. I am exactly where I need to be and I feel at home. I am grounded, exactly where I need to be. Things are not perfect, but I more confident than ever.
Back on the low carb horse for a whole day and feeling quite shitty now, the beginning of day two.
Woke up with sore/weak limbs and a genuine desire to stay in bed. Not depression related, but just really lethargic. My head feels very blah. Watched a few episodes of The Office with my breakfast, and have been tearing through my book. My BSL is quite high still, but I know that’s going to take a few days to come down and stabilise.
No yoga yesterday or today, unfortunately. I was road tripping all day yesterday and today I do not feel at all equipped to deal with a 42°C room right now. But the day isn’t in vain. I have lots of homework to do.
Come end January, babe and I will be conquering a large scale road trip and life change together:
✨🏡We’re moving to Brisbane🏡✨
I’ve been starting prep for the move with my therapist, making sure my mental health will be safe when it comes to both moving there, and settling there. It involves a metric fuck tonne of mindfulness and even DBT, changing the way I assess myself and situations and also learning how to cope with disappointments I perceive of myself and others. I have to plan for everything. Every scenario.
All of it is important and necessary. Frankly, all of it is HARD. Changing ones course of thinking is the single hardest thing I’ve ever attempted. Thought processes that occur naturally have to be edited. Things I want to say have to be reviewed before I say them. But they are necessary.
I’ve been asked a lot of this is what I want. It is.
It is a fresh start somewhere new. Where I know nobody, and as terrifying as that is, there’s also some freedom in that too. I get to go away from this place, where all my perceived failures occurred. Where I compare myself to everyone. Where I feel inadequate. I get a break and I can heal away from it all and I can come back. KimCarbs 2.0 (more like 7.0).
As long as I can prepare myself adequately, I’ll be fine. In keto, in the move, in my mental health. As long as I can prepare myself, I’ll be fine.
almost catching up to the ladies at @genesisathleticclub 😅 Hittin 370x3 fasted today. Why am I #fasting on a #bulk ? I guess i enjoy a challenge🤷🏻♂️. Gained 4 pounds since #Halloween but wer not gonna get too #fluffy this year since @contactfestival is just around the corner. S/o to my bro @hybrid1982 for stretching me out and helping this old man stay in tip top condition. Alot of times when someone is weak on a certain lift is due to tightness in the body that restricts certain muscles from firing properly. Swipe right for footage of my #fasciastretchtherapy session because everyone knows the only thing a #meathead hates more than #cardio ...is #stretching 😂
Supongo que haz escuchado la expresión que somos lo que comemos, cierto?? 😏

Follow @alkaline_vegan_news The Grape Fast, was the most healing experience of my life, and you know this is true because since doing it, I have not shut up about it. One of the many reasons why the Grape Cure is so effective is that grape sugar is taken immediately into the circulation without undergoing any process of digestion. There is on that account no undue tax on the organs of digestion and assimilation and Mother Nature can turn her full attention to the task of destroying the disease. Abnormal growths, cancer, tumors, ulcers, abscesses and fibrous masses seem to be dissolved by the powerful chemical agent in the grape. ⠀
Preparation: To prepare the system for the change of diet, the better practice is to fast for two or three days, drinking plenty of water. By this short fast, complications may be avoided. The stomach is cleared of poisons and fermenting accumulations to a certain extent, and the grape can begin its work more quickly. ⠀
Have grape meals every two hours, for a total of 7 meals daily. This is kept up for a week or two, even a month or two, in chronic cases. Not longer under any circumstances. ⠀
Variety - Any variety may be used - purple, green, red, white or blue. The monotony of the diet may be varied by using many varieties. Different varieties contain different elements so it is advisable to use as many kinds as one can get. ⠀
Quantity - A minimum quantity of one pound should be used daily, while the maximum should not exceed four pounds. ⠀
Water - You are permitted to drink as much water as you feel is necessary between the grape meals. In the early stages of the diet the patient often becomes very thirsty. Nature calls for an abundant supply of water to flush the system. After the poisons have been eliminated, this craving ceases. ⠀
For a full breakdown of what to do and expect while on the grape fast, read the book The Grape Cure by Johanna Brandt! ________________________________________________________ #food#healer#naturalremedy#herbs#minerals#nature#wakeup#toxins#herbalmedicine#fasting#intermittentfasting#organic#alkalinevegan
Been wanting to try an extended fast for a while now so after a touch of a stomach but and not feeling like eating. When I pressed start on Tue night I didn't have any expectations or intention to do my normal eating window or keep going but I did and finished up this afternoon with a cup of bone broth and a couple of scotch! Scotch fillets that is! I actually enjoyed it earlier this arvo I felt like I could go forever but called it quits later on as a headache set it. Still some learning to do in regards to electrolytes I think, but finally bit the bullet and did it. 💕J
My ladies are learning that carbs are GOOD!
Rachel posted this in Week One!!!! After years of being taught that carbs are bad for us, many clients have to learn to eat them, eat enough and eat the right ones.
It makes us feel better and gives us the energy we need for daily activities and working out.
Make friends with carbs they are a necessary part of our nutrition. Just choose whole, healthy carbs, not processed junk:) Download a FREE FASTer Way to Fat Loss® program overview AND a de to intermittent fasting using link in my bio.
Come find out what 1000s of people are learning in the FASTer Way®...effective results, enjoyable lifestyle, positive mindset!!
***PLEASE SHARE THIS POST*** THANKSFASTING is a 72 hour fast starting the Sunday before @Thanksliving with the intent of preparing one's mind, body and spirit for the holiday season. Letting your body rest for three days without food has been proven to rejuvenate the immune system.
I decided to start this time of fasting to help people realize the healing powers of fasting! Earlier this year I participated in an extended fast. Upon completion, I was left with a whole new perspective on the benefits of controlling my food and water intake. I myself will be attempting to fast the entire week. I may water fast for 4 or 5 days and then juice the last 2 or 3 days.
If 72 hours of water seems like to much consider juicing for the 3 days. I would encourage those who choose this option to juice themselves or try to only consume cold pressed juice. Pasteurized juices contain minimal health benefits due to the healthy bacteria being killed during the heating process (more info on this to follow). If you really feel like you have to eat but want to get your feet wet in the fasting arena try INTERMITTENT FASTING. This is the practice of only consuming food for 4-8 hours throughout the day! I have been utilizing this method off and on for nearly 2 decades now and enjoy the benefits immensely.
I will be doing follow up post and stories sharing information on preparing the body for the fast. The greatest key to preparing is consuming a gallon of water a day and eating as much fresh fruit and vegetables as possible!
Feel free to message me with any ?s you may have about fasting, juicing, or intermittent fasting.

Final meal before my 24 hour fast for the @fasterwaytofatloss. I hope I survive!!! Honestly though, I’m kind of excited to take on this challenge. Fasting has many benefits (besides helping with fat loss), including:
> increased energy
> digestive system repair (when we are constantly eating/snacking, our body doesn’t have time to rest and repair itself)
> increased secretion of human growth hormone, which aids in weight loss and muscle strength > normalized insulin levels (helps decrease risk of type II diabetes)
> decreased triglyceride levels (decreases risk of heart disease)
> helps decrease your hunger cravings
Even though it will be hard, I know I’ll feel great in the end! Wish me luck!
Nightly check in...skipping lunch ia getting easier. Surprisingly I'm not ravenous at the end of the day. Had some extra calories today so I treated myself to some peanut butter. I measured it out and everything! I'm so proud of myself 😂. Did day 2 of Mes de Más. Still sore from Monday so tomorrow should be interesting. Still unsure if I'll go back to eating lunch next week.
