my secret journal of reinvention

My personal adventure of reinvention on The 40 Day Green Cleanse might have looked like my primary focus was to lose weight.

Yes, I lost 40 pounds (at age 40), but what lies under the surface is a strong dedication for self growth and claiming my true power as a woman.

To be powerful, authentic, and dedicated to being the best I can be for myself, my family, and my son is my primary focus.  Honestly, the weight was just a cherry on top.


  

Here is my journey...



round 1

Mind:   I finally had the clarity to put sentences together that made sense when blogging.    I started new self lovin' rituals daily that made a huge impact on the way my days were lived day in and day out finding the connection back to self.    I went back to work at the studio on this round with my new focus. I was becoming more aware and writing in my journal about this internal and external process I was going through.  


I started a new business after this first round (yes, The 40 Day Green Cleanse) in response to what people wanted.  By now, I had created an entire new program including mind, body, spirit awareness practices along with an amazing list of green food list, coaching calls, group support, and recipes.  WHAT!?   It was a surprise to me because I never expected this direction I was headed towards in my business.  I went from devotion to self, to passing my new found wisdom and passion forward. 

Body:  I shed 19 pounds of fat and a considerable amount of inflammation was reduced.  The appearance of cellulite diminished greatly because of a better functioning lymphatic system.  I continued my routine I had started 5 months prior to this cleanse of working out 3 times a week.  I wasn't losing any weight until I began with this cleanse.  My digestion was working like clockwork once again.  The full nights of peaceful sleep was a huge celebration.   The sleep was a big gift since I was only getting about 1-3 hours of continuous sleep for one whole year prior to the cleanse.   I have a rhythm now that is connected to my true nature.  


Spirit:   I mourned the letting go of my "old self" and old beliefs around who I was.  I slowly became able to gather what it was to feel ALIVE again and feel my whole self as it should feel; Healthy, grounded, expanded and vibrant.   I found that connection to my "self" again, my new self.  My meditation practices were expanding and the sense of balance was starting to reflect in my environment.   I started to feel a part of community once again.  




round 2

Mind:  I had many moments of inspiration that kept coming.    I had done and led many cleanses in the past and I never intended it to be a part of my life in this way and at this time as a guiding force.   The effects of the 1st round cleanse were restructuring my career and it all took me by surprise  how much it had expanded.

I found cooking as a way to be creative and came up with all my new recipes that I was able to share with the first official Green Team in May and the second Green Team in June.   This is all so mind blowing in how fast this program and my new life was developing.  

Body:  I lost 16 extra pounds of fat on round 2 and more inflammation.  My body felt incredibly light, but yet grounded.  In over 20 years of cleansing, I have always felt my body light, but never grounded! My heart was expanding beyond what I have ever felt before and my heart was leading the way.

Spirit:  I connected more and more to receiving the guidance from my higher self; Directing me to the next step in my life.  I did not have the urge to control everything anymore.   I felt a deep sense of trust in my process, even though I did not know where I was going next in my life.   I felt like I was able to clearly channel the information I needed to expand my program and my self effortlessly.





round 3



Mind: I set an intention to really take it easier on this round and experiment with a maintenance level this time.  On this round, I started leading the 3rd official Green Team (there have been 4 total).  By the end of this round I was celebrating 85 official Green Team members, and I added more work/play to my day to day practice because I knew I  could take more on with my new found energy and growth.  


Body: I shed 5 pounds (and reached my goal of 40 pound weight loss total) of fat and started doing some weight training with Armando Hart, My husband.   I started building more strength and muscle definition.  My focus was not on cleansing as much as rebuilding this round as I am able to maintain and nourish my body with nutrients and minerals from the amazing food list.   I felt like I had reprogrammed myself to a new way of eating,  living, and embodying information. 

Spirit: I began unveiling some very deep rooted unconscious beliefs during this round that I thought I had dealt with years ago.  I experienced a new way of working with these emotional blocks as well.   This experience was emotionally ans physically intense and I felt my body and mind were strong enough to take on what what I chose to uncover.  My heart is incredibly full of compassion now after so much release.  It is truly incredible how much love and energy I have to share with the world now.

Our next Green Team is forming and we start on Sept. 10th.
(Late enrollment is possible until Sept. 16th).  

In dedication to love and the best life possible!

Health Rituals

Healthy living is not just about eating the correct foods day in and day out.  It is learning how to create daily rituals in your life so that you can learn to honor yourself as a complete, holistic being and unleash your full vibrancy from the inside out.  Without honoring your body, mind, and spirit, true balance and health cannot be achieved. 

My weight loss of 40 pounds could not have been attained without balance, awareness, and the practice of these important rituals below.  

Daily rituals for healthy living
Drink plenty of water
Get plenty of sleep
Surround yourself by community and people that believe in you
Laugh a lot
Incorporate your greens with every meal
Appreciate nature
Know your personal boundaries
Have fun in life
Reduce your stress levels
Eliminate added sugars
Stop calorie counting
Eliminate processed foods/low-fat foods/unpronounceable foods
Develop empowering self-talk
Get enough exercise
Eat nutrient rich foods that come directly from the earth
Cook at home vs eating out
Listen to your body's needs
Quiet your mind daily by meditation, a yoga practice, or alone time with nature
Practice self lovin'
Do a cleanse at least once a year
and repeat....

                                                          The local Green Team had a Green Party

These rituals may seem simple, but they can be challenging to many of us if we are out of balance.  I will give you the to tools you need on my program, The 40 Day Green Cleanse, to get a jump start on YOUR super vibrant life!  By the 40 days, you will have created the energy you need to start implementing what is important to feel your best everyday and you will be completely supported to live the best life possible with the amazing Green Team community no matter what state or country you live in. 

Join our growing Green Team community now and be supported by the most loving, supportive, and inspiring  people that are swapping an average existence for an amazing, healthy, and vibrant life!

In health,

Completing the first 40 days I was left feeling like this.  Beyond that, I lost 19 pounds of inflammation, weight, toxins.

The second round I lost 16 pounds.  Read more here.  

Now, on my 3rd round as more of a maintenance and container to set forth important goals I have set out to achieve for my personal life.  I love being held accountable within a loving, compassionate community of folks.

35 pounds less and MORE of ME!




My personal transformation on The 40 Day Green Cleanse is something to celebrate!  I have lost a total of 35 pounds since the start of the cleanse at  the beginning of March 2014 and I have more of ME to share!   

This cleanse has been more than losing excess pounds.  Beyond the pounds, I have gained an awareness that allows me to feel better about myself and feel empowered to live a more balanced life physically, mentally, and spiritually.

I lost a total of 19 pounds when I first went through the 40 days. I loved it so much that I chose to continue eating 50% green;  This is level 4 of the cleanse.  I never starved myself during those 40 days;  I ate delicious green foods that were prepared to taste better than what I expected.  In fact, I offer more than 25 recipes the Green Teams, and counting.  Read more about my first 40 days here. 

Last month,  I dedicated myself to the program once again while I facilitated and coached 30 individuals through The 40 Day Green Cleanse.  I moved to a level that allows eating lean meats and fish (level 3) in addition to the green fruits and veggies and I'm still managing to keep energy levels high and my health on point.  After all, I feel more alive than I have ever felt in my life!

Look at the image below and see what's possible at level 3.   My family also eats what I eat and they are all  happy and healthy.   I made my husband a sushi roll made with Ahi Tuna, smashed avocado instead of rice, baked sage zucchini, fresh cucumber, sprouts, and all served with a side of tamari sauce, wasabi, and ginger.   It was super yummy.   I wish I had a picture of my husband's face while he was eating it.  One of these days I'll capture it lol!

The card below says "Detoxification",  an auspicious message for the meal! 



I even managed to lose 16 more pounds even though I started hitting the gym and putting on muscle.  My husband creator of ZeroPoint Performance inspired me a few weeks ago to step up my fitness routine and start workouts with him in combination with the cleanse.  So, I am taking advantage of the offer.  Firm body, here I come!

For now, I am excited to continue eating the way I have for another 40 days alongside the July 23rd Green Team.  I make realistic commitments so I can always achieve success and engage myself in the reflections and inquiries that this program provides.     

This is my new green way of life and I love it!!!
My family loves it, I love it, and the Green Teams LOVES IT;  That's success to me!!!

Pass the hemp!

Several weeks ago I became inspired to write about one of my favorite oils I am suggesting to my clients to use on my program; The 40 Day Green Cleanse.

I love discovering new foods that will produce amazing benefits for everyone during and after the cleanse.  Hemp oil is one of those new discoveries. 

In my 21 years of cleansing,  I always seem to learn something new.  Hemp oil has  never has been inside my kitchen or bathroom drawers until now.

I can use hemp oil in two ways. I can take a shot of hemp oil daily or cook with it on low/medium heat.  It adds a nice nutty flavor to all my green dishes.

I also use it on my daily self lovin' ritual by adding it to my favorite essential oil blend and massage the mixture straight into my half dry skin after a shower, feels like heaven!

And, no it won't make you high!


Why I love it....

  • Nourishes dehydrated skin while giving you a youthful look
  • Helps maintain muscle mass (highly beneficial for cleansing)
  • It contains the optimal ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 in the ratio of 3:1 for our bodies to absorb
  • Helps with inflammation
  • Lowers the risk of cancer
  • Linoleic acids slow down aging process woop woop!  I put in directly on my skin.
  • Helps increase immunity
  • Balances hormones 
  • Low in carbs and helps to moderate blood sugars (great for diabetics) 
  • It can act as a treatment for dry hair
and so much more!

What have I done for me lately?



After I completed The 40 Day Green Cleanse, I contemplated in my new found excitement. I asked the universe how can I inspire others on a deeper level to live the most beauty-full life possible, inside and out.


The universe answered my call through multiple clients, family members, and friends. The answer was to guide another powerful cleansing program. It resulted in expanding my career by including more "inner" beauty rituals such as one on one coaching and group cleansing. I asked, the universe responded, and I'm saying YES!

The 40 Day Green Cleanse is scheduled for May and June and filling up quick. Woot woot!


What have you done lately that has been life changing?


Below is a card I intuitively chose, and it's perfect on how I feel about our May Green Team!







Stand for yourself! Stand for one another!



In a group setting, we take a stand for one another. We have a safe place to hold ourselves accountable and share celebrations and struggles.


Day in and day out we are following through on our original intentions while being witnessed by our fellow team members. Group energy can help us overcome the challenges that may seem impossible to overcome on our own.


And, being part of a team is a blast!


In my world, cleansing is not just a fast track to lose weight. The 40 Day Green Cleanse program is intended to clear the way towards shedding more than just extra pounds in your life.


It is designed to bring strong creative energy to make enormous shifts by shedding unwanted energetic layers and old pattern that hide your powerful, creative, and authentic self.


For me, cleansing has brought better health, self love, self esteem, connection to my creativity while living an authentically joyful life; A life full of beauty.


It is about forgiving ourselves when we have been neglecting ourselves; It's about reconnecting ourselves and becoming lighter and more energized to move forward with ease and joy.


It is so exciting for me to be a witness of the transformations that will occur during this experience of cleansing while being a part of a group. You will know what I'm talking about when you see it happen in another!



When you sign up for The 40 Day Green Cleanse, you will be part of the secret Facebook page where I will share more detailed information, a shopping list, menus, a list of green foods, and recipes. There is also 4 group coaching calls on this journey!


Why attempt this alone when you don't have to. Cleansing could be extremely challenging and lonely when attempted solo.


This is an opportunity to love yourself deeper.

from ugly duckling to beauty~

When I was a small child I would always admire my mother's beauty.  I would gaze at her beauty with awe and hopes that one day I can be that beautiful.  But, I intuitively knew that her outer beauty did not match how she felt on the inside.   

I wondered what beauty really was.  My mother struggled with her inner battles and self esteem.  Her struggle would influence me growing up.  Is that why I felt like an ugly duckling?   I didn't know who to turn to for an example of a powerful role model. 

Below: Sister Susan (right) Our mother Vivian, and me (left)

How could my mother teach me self love if she never practiced that herself?   This has been my greatest challenge and biggest blessing. 


I have taken many wrong turns, but I learned that beauty is an internal devotion to self.  It is being "selfish" and taking time to honor my deepest desires and to take time to spend with myself.   It is balancing my family life, work life, and my private life so I can truly be happy and whole.

 It was the willingness  to unveil  false layers so my authentic beauty so it could rise up to the surface.     Beauty was learning to let go and love my mother in all of her imperfect perfections.  In that, I allow to love myself without judgments. 


Self image was also important and was a reflection of my inner dialogue; it was a catalyst to my self-esteem.   It works in harmony as a creative force for who I am.   Taking care of my outer body temple is an honor.  And, I am grateful to help others in co-creating an image that makes them feel ALIVE. 


In the darkest moments,  I discovered all the tools I needed to help me in the revelation of my authentic self.  These tools I use now to coach others who are in the journey of self-discovery.


I became coach that I am today by reconnecting to my self worth and beauty during my darkest times as that ugly ducking.   I thank my mother for being that reflection of where I needed to learn and grow in my own way.  I now help my clients as an Art of Beauty coach and image consultant by guiding them to live in beauty; Inside and out.                                      


Beauty is and always will be who I am.  Beauty is and always will be who you are too!


We do not need to find beauty. 
  

All we have to do is remember we are beauty!


The 40 Day Green Cleanse was a devotion dedicated to self.  I waited until I was done breastfeeding and I couldn't wait to give myself the gift of cleansing and self care.  Especially when I saw the ugly duckling coming back in from months and months of sleep deprivation that led to lack of self esteem and some other issues.      I needed to stand in my radiance and breathe in my power again.  My brain fog lifted and energy came back.  My hormones felt balanced once more.  I felt alive again!


As a result of my inner and outer work,  I finally feel I have landed back into my radiant body again 19 pounds lighter in 40 days!


Now, I can give more of my beauty to my son, my family and my clients and the world!


Self love is beautiful and priceless and can influence your children for a lifetime.   I am honored to be guiding 2 groups  May 21st and June 3rd on The 40 Day Green Cleanse.

Fierce 40!


After I completed The 40 Day Green Cleanse,  I was jumping with joy with the flood of responses I received from the last blog post 40 days of self lovin'.  The many responses were from people interested in accomplishing what I accomplished for myself.  I am wholeheartedly dedicated to helping all these individuals because I believe in the power of cleansing.   

I received e-mail after e-mail from inspired individuals requesting to join the next Green Team!  Due to the amount of responses and interest, I have decided to add an extra starting dates to the cleanse.    Now, we have a team in May and one in June!  

Getting my game on!
Why did I need a cleanse to feel this this amazing and look this good?  Internally there was an inner ROAR to get my game on!   I wanted to feel and look amazing and embrace my "new" image. 

 I am FIERCE at 40 years young and lovin' it!

Below is a picture of me right before I became pregnant with my son RaYa.  The picture beside it was taken 4 months after the birth of my son.   During that time, I felt tired, heavy, disconnected from self, and not so fierce.  Nevertheless, I loved myself and was hopeful and optimistic that I would once again be that radiant woman walking confidently on the beautiful beaches feeling alive full of energy.   I could not wait to shower myself with more time and energy for self lovin'. 


Almost 11 months later I was able to start The 40 Day Green Cleanse.  (see pic below) Besides cleansing my body of toxins and losing excess body weight,  I gained the ability to focus on creating a conscious connection to self and the energy to redirect my life in the most aligned and inspired  new way.  After all, I am reborn again!

I completely believe in the power of taking care of yourself because it allows to fully give yourself to others.  I now find myself giving all of "me" to my son and my husband because I have been giving fully to myself. 

 I am dedicated to serving as an example for my son by showing him that Mommy takes good care of herself so she can be the best Mom for him; But that doesn't stop him from challenging me to stay true to myself.    When I find myself in those times of making that difficult choice of putting my needs to the side to cater to him, I think about the example I'm being for him and the importance of lovin' self.  I have seen too many cases where "mom" fully gives to her family, and in the process puts here needs to the side.  I became so excited when I received interest from mothers and fathers requesting to join the team!

 I hope that we can all pave the way for our children and future generations.  


Would you like to lose weight,  feel amazing, look radiant, and connect to your personal stream of aliveness again?


Join us on the next 40 Day Green Cleanse starting May 21st and the second group starts June 3rd.


In beauty,
Yve Hart
