Body Buddies 2017 — What Can It Do For YOU?

  Hi, I’m Kristy Jo, Mind and Body Strategist, and I want to help you POWER YOUR BODY! At the age of 25 years old, I was sick of being miserable, having zero confidence, hating my body, and out of control with my eating and exercise. My world revolved around my misery and I hit the darkest hole I’d ever been in. On March 7 2012, I heard a voice come into my mind as I was driving on the freeway: “You are the Master of yourself.” I thought I was crazy. But I hear it a second time. “You are the Master of yourself.” That day was the impetus, but every day since then has been the formation of new learning, new habits, new mindsets, new strategies to do EVERYTHING.I now share those mindset, nutrition, and fitness strategies with my Body Buddies–those who are willing to not just learn,...

3 Secrets To Building Confidence In Yourself

Dear Body Buds, Finding confidence in yourself can often be a journey that feels too hard to make. Friends and family tell you to “just be to be confident,” but they may not understand the mental blocks you’re experiencing. Today I want to provide for you 3 secrets to building confidence in yourself that you can begin implementing and seeing resulting growth happen immediately. I often reflect back on the girl I was growing up–my journals are filled with statements of insecurity. I didn’t think I was pretty. I thought I had a weird face. My forehead was too big. None of the boys seemed to like me. I didn’t even kiss a boy until I was almost 20! I didn’t have a boyfriend until I was 24!  In spite of my achievements in dance and education, I was lacking something deep within. CONFIDENCE. Confidence that only I could give...

5 Steps To Stopping Emotional Eating Before It Starts

Dear Body Buds, Emotional eating is an activity that has stopped so many of you from following The Power Foods Lifestyle as you know you should. Having coached so many people through to reach their goals physically and succeed, I have also coached many who couldn’t get out of their own way. They didn’t know how to navigate the emotional eating that sabotaged their efforts to change their body composition and improve their health. That is why I have created my all-new “Binge Bye Bye” 12-week Mindset Mastery Course. This course is designed to be a crucial element for all Body Buds who find themselves slipping up time and time again on their nutrition strategy due to what we call “trigger emotions.” What are trigger emotions? They are feelings we experience then seek to either run from or mask through turning to “comfort food.” If a person does not learn how...

WABI SABI: How To Love and Accept Your Body

Dear Body Buds, Many of you may know that I have a moderately severe case of scoliosis.  Many do not know because I have trained myself to hold myself normally and still do everything I love to do–I find workarounds. I have done my very best to love my body and accept this difficult obstacle in my life that keeps me from doing much more in the realms of fitness and dance, but I will admit there are times I struggle. There are times that I am a little bit bitter and resentful. I have to pay attention to my feelings, catch them, and filter them into being grateful for what I can do and the blessings I have been given. We all have physical traits that we wish we could change. Perhaps we can, perhaps others we can’t. But how much of your time is spent wishing you could...

“Clean Eating” May Not Be Enough For You

Dear Body Buds, Clean eating simply may not be enough for you,  point blank.  But before we get farther, let’s define “clean eating” and who it’s for:   According to Good Housekeeping, clean eating “began with good intentions: it used to imply eating lots of whole, real foods–veggies and fruit, whole-grains, animal and plant-based protein, nuts, seeds, and oils. It also meant that what you eat should be as close to nature as possible–minimally processed, not packaged, or originating from a factory. Cooking at home and finding good ingredients were encouraged.” Are there benefits to these efforts? ABSOLUTELY! Will they get everyone to their goals? NOPE! Yes, beginning to eat clean is a step in the right direction. Woo hooo! I love when people begin focusing on these things!  This is described in the Power Foods Lifestyle as “Tier 1 Eating.” Applaudable, a huge step of progress, and I LOVE IT! But…...

The Top 20 Power Foods You Should Be Eating

Dear Body Buds, The saying “What you eat is what you are” while not literally true, has much truth on an energy level. I love to work with kids the most because their minds are so open to learning! They have not yet been programmed by too many experiences, people, and events. I like pull out the food advertisements from a newspaper and have the kids look at them with me. I explain that the “energy foods” are those that come from plants or animals. I also explain that the “no energy foods” are those that are in a lot of packaging, boxing, etc. We go through each food item and have a pop quiz! “Is this an energy item or a no energy item?” I ask. The kids pick it up really quickly as they learn to identify foods that have a lot more natural nutrition to fuel their...
