Profile Information

Our community would be delighted to know you better. Please tell us more about yourself and what brought you to 30BaD. Detailed responses will only be accepted (feel free to reapply with more detail if at first not approved as a member). We suggest you pick a name other than your own if you want to maintain anonymity.
My main interests are personal growth/ psychology and yoga.
Currently I'm working through a lot of Anthony Robbins materials and I'm extremely excited to be attending one of his live events this year! :)
Yoga is a huge part of my life. I practice power yoga and some Ashtanga. I am really interested in doing more Acro Yoga, Partner Yoga, and Tripsichore. I am trained as a Yoga Teacher through YogaFit and Amazing Yoga.

My other interests include: walks in the park, reading, learning, NVC, inspirational quotes and stories, funny movies, making arts and crafts projects, and trying new sports or fitness activities. I would love to get back into gymnastics too. I really want to try Aerial Yoga, acrobatics, Kangoo / Rebounder shoe classes.

I am a Pisces on the Aquarius cusp. I'm very compassionate, thoughtful, and love to help others. I love spending time with kids and would like to teach kids yoga someday. I'm also an Idealist Counselor type (according to the Keirsey Temperament Sorter).

I've lived a very difficult life, starting with my childhood, but I've come to realize that "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger." I have experienced a lot of health challenges including chronic fatigue/ adrenal exhaustion, mercury toxicity from amalgam fillings, migraines, caffeine abuse, lots of stomach problems including Gilbert's Disease, acid reflux, emotional eating issues, anxiety, depression, and more. Now I don't really believe in naming diseases but instead I realize there are things that cause illness and things that cause health. Yoga, Tony Robbins teachings, and the 811 diet have been significantly helping me with my healing. I really want to find a way to use my experiences to help others.

The most important thing to me in life is Love. I have been feeling sad and empty without someone to give to. There is so much love in my heart and I just want to meet the man of my dreams to be able to support him and believe in him no matter what. Love is always my number one priority above all else. I love deeply and fully. I want to be able to learn and grow together, and experience life together both the joys and the sorrows. I have a need to be needed by someone. I will never be fully happy until I have someone to give my heart to who will be able to be just as committed as I am and love me back just as much.

***I really want to find a way to start some type of health/ life-coaching business or help someone in their mission doing this. I am looking for someone to do this with so please let me know if you are interested! I am ready to live my dreams and design my life instead of being caught up making a living. :)
I'm looking to relocate in July 2012 to New York, but I'm considering other areas as well. If anyone needs an 80/10/10 roommate, wants to move with me, or has any tips on moving please contact me and let me know!!!***

Day 1-Live the Ultimate Dream-Healing with the 811rv Lifestyle

Posted on April 26, 2012 at 1:03pm 0 Comments

Today I am finally starting my daily Blog! I will record my foods, exercise, and lessons I'm learning in my life.

For a brief background, I have dealt with adrenal issues, hypoglycemia, candida, depression, anxiety, emotional eating, previously having been both somewhat overweight and also anorexic at one point.

I've been eating 811rv since July 1st, 2011 and have experienced significant improvements. I want to share my experience as well as…


My Commitment to my Health

Posted on March 10, 2012 at 6:50am 3 Comments

I am currently working on following Tony Robbins Body You Deserve Program. I want to be able to heal my body so I can finally help others. I can't be very useful to others if I'm not taking proper care of myself I guess. Ideally id like to become a health/life coach so I guess that means resolving my own health issues first. I realize good health is essential to achieving anything else in life.

The program recommends writing a letter of commitment to a friend who will hold me…


Getting Over Addictions, Learning to have Fun and Enjoyment

Posted on March 10, 2012 at 6:41am 4 Comments

Addictions are just wanting to feel good in the moment and not knowing a better way yet.  All humans have an inherent desire to experience pleasure and avoid pain.

Being raised with a lot of negativity and stress, especially being poor and abused it is really hard to learn positive ways to feel good and take care of yourself.  When one is raised with kindness and love and encouraged to enjoy life, it is much easier to do that. Having fun comes…

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now." ---Goethe

I have been planning on focusing on healing my body for a long time now, but I haven't been actually doing it at all.  I realized that I needed stronger reasons for doing it so that the fundamentals don't feel…

Hi Dana! =) Currently i coach my friends in eating healthy but I was thinking about NLP or something similar to it in the future. 

At 11:09am on February 7, 2012, Barbara A Mason said…

Hi, Dana! I am Barbara. I am glad to know you. Your above plate looks healthy and amazing. It really does look like you are finding your way. I have decided to do this plan because it makes sense to me. I am overweight, and quite disgusted with many diets for people that are offered now a days. I have been vegetarian in the past but allowed family members to talk me out of it. I used to be much more active than I currently am. I used to do yoga and I am trying to do a daily practice once again. I used to walk and hike everywhere.  I have a number of hurdles to overcome too. I also know that soothing yourself with food as I have done in the past has not worked and only created new problems for myself. I do not need any more problems and I need to solve the ones I have. So in 2012 I am getting rid of whatever complicates my life. This is a general statement not directed at anyone but me. This diet makes me think about what I am doing, what I am eating. It can be simple if I need it to be .     I am thinking this just might work for me. Anyway I wish you well in your journey and I will enjoy being your friend on 30 Bananas a day!

Hi Dana! I actually never got to try the mamey sapote. they don't always have them in stock I found out here in Pgh. but I do love buying in bulk! There are 2 bulk food places in the Strip. I am not 100% raw yet, but I am working on it. I am just west of Pittsburgh for now.
