How I transformed myself by changing my mindset

I want to share my journey with you because I’m guessing there is someone out there who can relate to this.

Thank you for reading and allowing me to be completely honest and vulnerable.

The picture on the left was me when I was in my late 30’s.

A single mom, overweight, unhappy, stuck in survival mode, and doing what I needed to make things work for my daughter and me.

Sure, I looked ok on the surface but honestly, I was dying on the inside.

I felt anxious, stressed out, sad, lost and scared, while I was trying to survive one failed relationship after another after another.

I was numbing my feelings by over eating, smoking ci******es, and drinking alcohol almost every day.

I became a workaholic and I was addicted to s*x and toxic relationships.

I had moments where I would literally scream while driving home from work because I was so stressed out and anxious.

I was just praying for someone to come and love me enough to save me. But the harsh reality was this:

No one was coming to save me.

Then, after I turned 37, I was diagnosed with diabetes.

This was the wake up call that I needed to light a fire in me and I knew I had to make changes.

I had to get healthy for my daughter because she was the only thing that mattered to me.

I knew that in order for me to change, I had to start loving myself and allow myself to start behaving as if I were a new person.

Fast forward to today, I lost 30 lbs, I quit smoking and drinking heavily, and I reversed my diabetes.

I invested in myself by getting a coach and I put myself through lots of therapy.

Today, I am the healthiest and the happiest I’ve ever been.

Was this easy? F**k no!
Was it worth it? F**k yes!!

So what was the secret to making my transformation? It was 100% mindset.

I had to imagine my old self was dying in order for me to allow the change to happen because she was the one holding me back in every single area of my life.

I didn’t wait until I reached my goal weight, quit drinking and smoking, or find someone to love me to be happy.

I learned to love myself and find happiness and gratitude each step of the way.

The actions and behaviors I took were as if I was already that person I always wanted to be.

I visualized my new self every single day. I am confident. I am healthy. I am loved. I am happy. I am worthy. I am a fu***ng badass!

My after picture on the right is one of my favorites not only because I transformed my body, but because you can tell that I now feel empowered. I call it my superhero pose.

My wish for all of you is to light your own fire in your belly and imagine yourself as the best version of yourself so that you can show up as that person every day and kick ass💪💪

Because YOU ARE SO WORTH IT!!!

Drop a 💜💙♥️💛💚emoji if you agree!

Have an amazing day and remember to love yourself 🥰😘
Happy Korean American Day!! 🇰🇷

I was adopted from Korea and raised in Wellesley, MA. I was one of just a handful of Asian children living in my town and I never accepted or embraced my culture until I was an adult. I spent my childhood ashamed, embarrassed, and unsure of who I was. I was also bullied and faced discrimination because I am Korean. It took a lot of self work, coaching, and therapy to get to where I am today…proud, confident, at peace. But here I am🤗

I am grateful to be Korean American and I love how my experiences have shaped who I am. I have learned to love more, have more compassion, and realize that my desire to learn about people of my own culture as well as other cultures has been a blessing.

Thank you for letting me share my story 💕💕💕

#nationalkoreanamericanday #korean #kad
What I learned in 2021…

💜 I want to live my life without any regrets
💜 I am the change I want in this world
💜 I can write my own story and not feel “stuck” on my past
💜 The best me is yet to come🥰

What did you learn?
We ate our way through NYC, Italy, then France😋

Do you struggle with feeling “stuck” in life?

Like you want to start eating healthier, working out, making more time for self care, or just start feeling better about yourself in general?

This feeling is so common (I experience it all the time) and it literally will crush all opportunities to reach your goals unless you do something about it!

Here are 3 things you should do today:

1️⃣ Envision your highest self. If your view of the future is negative (for example you think “I’ll always be overweight”) then you will always be pulling negativity into your every day thoughts and actions. But if you visualize how you truly want to be in the future, then you will start to see your actions will align with that higher self.

2️⃣ Practice gratitude. Waking up each morning and saying what you are grateful for sets the most amazing tone for your day. You will not be focused on what you can’t do, or what you can’t have, but will be focused on what is already going well in your life.

3️⃣ Just start taking action. It doesn’t have to be massive, perfect, or even make sense to you. try a 5-10 minute workout, just try making one more dinner at home, or just try taking 5 minutes to meditate or journal. Don’t worry about if your workout plan is perfect, or if your macros are right, or if you have trouble sitting with your thoughts for even a few minutes. The most important part of this step is to high-5 yourself every time you take action! You will start to change your negative mindset to positive and that small action will keep going and going until one day you realize that you are unstoppable!

Which one will you try today?

I love making these for meal prep and the peanut dipping sauce is SO GOOD 😋

Ingredients:

Cooked jumbo shrimp (can substitute any thinly sliced cooked meat)

1 package rice paper wraps

1 bell pepper

1 English cucumber or package of mini cucumbers

Fresh basil leaves

Bean sprouts, broccoli slaw, carrots, butter lettuce, or any other raw veggies you love

Rice noodles or soba noodles (optional)

For the peanut dipping sauce:

2 Tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp sriracha (optional)
1 tsp coconut aminos or soy sauce
¼ cup water plus extra to thin out consistency
Chopped peanuts (optional)

You can double or triple the sauce recipe if making more than 1 serving

Is meal prepping part of your ritual?

The key to making progress towards your health goals is consistently getting better nutrition.

Eating healthy is hard work and it doesn’t just happen after you decide you want to do it.

How many times do you set a goal of eating healthy but then life happens to us and we put it off, or half-ass it, or do it but it causes so much stress that you only do it once or twice?

The best advice I can give you is that eating healthy doesn’t have to be an “all or nothing approach.”

But it doesn’t just happen by chance.

If you have good food in your fridge, you are way more likely to eat good food!

Start small and as you practice it more, you will get better and more efficient.

What if you made even one or two extra meals next time you cooked.

You would be improving your chances of eating healthier tomorrow!

Who’s ready to start making meal prepping part of your ritual?

Follow this 5-step Kitchen Transformation👇👇👇

1) Go through your pantry, cabinets, and fridge, and reduce or eliminate foods that don't support your goals. (Or make those foods inconvenient—like in a hiding place that someone else chooses.) And if you’re not ready to purge it all, no problem. Do what you can for now.

2) Take a quick trip to the grocery and get foods that do support your goals. Make those foods readily available and easy to prepare and eat.

3) Tidy up the kitchen, get rid of unused/extra stuff, and put the most useful kitchen tools within arm’s reach, so it’s a nice place to cook and eat peacefully.

4) Have a conversation with other household members (if there are any) about what can help make this work, and garner their support if possible.

5) Use visualization to picture your healthier self and all the healthier habits you will be doing as part of that lifestyle. Close your eyes and visualize how that person’s kitchen would look and then think how you would feel if your kitchen looked that way. Write this feeling down and place it somewhere in your kitchen where it’s visible every day to remind you of your goals.

I won’t pretend this is the easiest thing in the world, but it’s certainly easier (and more effective) than relying on willpower alone. And you might be surprised by how much your eating behaviors begin to change—all because you made some strategic tweaks to your environment.

What’s better than a box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day❤️

Nutella stuffed chocolate protein bombs!

My favorite homemade treat when I have a craving for something chocolatey and sweet. Made with dates and cacao powder so they have many health benefits.

Dates help with cholesterol, constipation, blood pressure, brain function, and make your hair and nails healthier.

Cacao powder contains antioxidants, helps reduce PMS symptoms, and also helps to enhance your mood 😁

Does anybody use this kitchen hack?

I cook meatballs in small muffin tins because they cook faster and more evenly than in a pan or on cookie sheet.

Also, I love adding raw and cooked veggies to soba noodles (buckwheat) for a healthier version of lomein 😋

What are your favorite kitchen hacks?

DIETS AND MEAL PLANS SUCK!!!

Diets and meal plans are not meant to be long term.

You may be thinking, "but I WANT a meal plan - just tell me what to eat so I don't have to figure it out!"

Unfortunately, when we try to follow a super specific program or rigid prescription, many things can - and do - go wrong.

Typically, one of three things will happen with a diet or meal plan:

1. You don't stick to it like you are supposed to (because we are human and have a life!)

2. You follow it perfectly (but it becomes too strict for too long)

3. You follow the plan for a while but don't really enjoy it so it is not sustainable long term

Learning to eat properly and make healthy choices - and indulge now and then - is a much more sustainable and enjoyable way to live!

Read my blog post on how to lose weight without dieting.
