Watching the spread of empowerment offered through The Wahls Protocol® is almost a daily nirvana for this BOSS Lady! More and more I am elevated with joy at the outcomes of wellness many are achieving!
Thank you Dr. Wahls for giving us the tools to heal ourselves! #empowerment
One of the hardest parts of being a Wahls Warrior is traveling! So many ask me about how to make this work & this blog post is dedicated to the world traveler in all of us! #knowledgeispower
PaleoBOSS Lady's Top 10 Travel Tips for Warriors!
1. Preparation is key to any successful trip that includes following the protocol. Just like daily 'non-vacation' living requires Warrior planning travel does too and actually tends to step this need up a peg. #damnit
No complaining allowed because you are on vacation and planning more seems like an oxymoron. Consider the alternative is all I am saying. #bossladyhere
Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Ball Rolling is GREAT for travel!
2. Consider accommodations that offer a kitchen. With many travelers using Airbnb & VRBO this reality is easy & economical to make happen. This option has offered PaleoBOSS Lady at least one compliant meal a day on average and always a safety zone when finding meals out an impossible task. Not to mention the savings traveling this way! #nirvana
3. When staying at a hotel call and ask for a small refrigerator to be put in the room. Many if not most hotels do this on a regular basis. This way you can keep items on hand that are compliant if you are traveling with your own food of any kind.
4. Pack a travel kit of hard to find items or must haves! Many times PaleoBOSS Lady has shipped ahead items to a vacation destination! Makes a huge difference and most travel destinations have no problem receiving deliveries! #ohitgetswild
5. If you are like me & love food many vacations have 'destination' dining spots on the list of must do's. When an eating event is known way in advance than call the restaurant. Be honest & tell them how food is your medicine and it can easily turn into your poison and can they help you? It seems that anywhere, but in LA the answer is always yes! #ohyesidid
6. The secret is in the planning? A Wahls Warrior needs to plan vacations with food, mindfulness and movement accounted for on the itinerary. #notestep1
7. Search the internet for recommended spots that are Paleo or Wahls compliant. More and more are popping up & I recommend looking at the latest food bloggers websites. Especially if they have just published a cookbook because many of them are touring around for signings posting the food spots they are hitting during the tour! #bam
8. Lighten up a little and don't get yourself crazy over food not being cooked in the right fat for a few days! Not going to lie and say after a while this does not bother me because I do notice when I am not living optimally. How I extend this outcome is by increasing my movement and mindfulness work during vacation! Not to the point of being out of balance, but I may add a little extra breath work or longer meditation time.
9. Planning is essential to being a successful Wahls Warrior! #refertosteps1and6
10. Don't travel to places that do not offer you optimal best life living options unless you have no choice. I know in an ideal world we want to be able to go everywhere and see it all, but this reality is not realistic and that is that. #SoBOSSy
PaleoBOSS Lady has been a living miracle as a Wahls Warrior for over 1000 days and it does get easier over time, but it is not easy! Nothing about living with disease is easy!
Anywhere I go I always have something like a bag of nuts, almond butter packet, a bar or fruit on my person so that I will never go hungry. Long gone are the days of panic because there is nothing I can eat. #learning
Never does a situation happen that I starve, but I have been out and unable to eat what was being served. This used to make me mad until I changed my lens. Now I feel more empowered to promote the movement by example as I am reminded that so many are still blind to the self poisoning our food system is causing their bodies!
Not a day goes by that PaleoBOSS Lady does not hear that she has inspired, engaged or empowered someone to live consciously and that is the greatest joy of all! No longer does PaleoBOSS Lady get mad when being a Wahls Warrior is hard instead it reminds me of how important my mission as a warrior really is! #teachbyexample
