FITNESS BLOG #10: Journey to HEALTH – From SICK to STUNNING! – NPC Competition Results

Posted by Dr. Lori Arnold

How can YOU go from SICK to STUNNING? In Blog #10 of my Fitness Journey, and road to NPC Physique Competition, I continue to update you through my health and wellness video series. By attempting to inspire and motivate YOU to wellness, I have overcome autoimmune illness and toxic mold poisoning that had left me debilitated much of 2014. I want you to see where you can take your body when you instill faith in yourself and your body’s natural ability to “heal itself”… without the use of pharmaceutical drugs or treatments.

Today is the DAY AFTER the NPC Competition in Culver City, California. I am back at home and excited to share the results of the award ceremony from last night. I am proud to report I PLACED 3rd in my Masters 40+ Division! This is an incredible achievement for my first competition!

Recall back to when I started my journey on the bikini team on March 17th, I had only 2 months of preparation! I did not set out to compete to win a trophy or even place in the Top 5… I had other objectives in mind when I began. My main objective was to get healthy. I wanted to restore my vitality and energy levels, and what I knew my body was capable of. I wanted to heal myself “fit”.

LADIES, YOU can do this too! If I could take a very sick body and turn it around “health-wise”, YOU can too! Have faith, have patience, and have love for yourself and you will get through your journey successfully!

Gain important insights into this unique healing journey and prepared to be inspired, motivated and energized to find ways to teach your body to heal itself. Are YOU sick and tired of being sick and tired? Are you struggling with ways to get your body to reverse the disease process and restore your vitality and energy?

We are now only 5 DAYS away from NPC competition in L.A. I take some time to explain what I was not prepared for coming in to this completion and training for the competition. Fatigue re-surfaced as I am prone to adrenal fatigue and also hormonal issues from menopause. I emphasize the importance of adequate 7-9 hours of sleep. Further dietary restriction was another struggle that created more stress. Finally, assure your coach offers more 1:1 training and is there with you to assure you can get your gains and be the best you can be, and help prevent injury during the process.

Take an intimate look into the emotional struggle to drive yourself to this elite level of physical fitness. If considering this type of NPC competition, learn about the other activities you will need to engage in as part of this process and journey.

HYB What Happens When YOU are BROKEN? How Do YOU Heal Yourself?

Posted by Dr. Lori Arnold

“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” – Joseph Campbell

Women are born to be caretakers. It is part of us. We are genetically programmed to take care of others. During that process we fail to take good care of ourselves. As a result, we put ourselves last on the list and many times are the first to experience adverse consequences like disease and illness.

In the process of trying to achieve my version of “perfection” and taking care of everyone else’s needs before my own, I was faced with health challenges and mental anguish, so much so, that I had become “broken”. So what do YOU DO when you have become “broken”? How do you heal yourself from this place?

When Joseph Campbell described “The Hero’s Journey”, he spoke to the most difficult struggle you will have in your life leading you to the most amazing outcome you can’t even possibly imagine. Personally, I had to hit rock bottom before I could begin to find a way out of the chaos and pain. In fact, I am experiencing the Hero’s Journey right now.

Louise Hay teaches us that we are molded from youth by ideals we learn from our parents. However, YOU cannot blame your parents for your current situation. No manual exists for how parents can be perfect parents, and unfortunately in most cases, our parents were not aware they were doing anything wrong because they learned by example from their parents. She teaches us to let it go and forgive them, and urges us to not harbor those feelings of resentment and anger from our childhood. To truly begin healing our body and mind, we need to practice healing affirmations of forgiveness. This practice is incredibly empowering!

Today’s message is to LOVE YOURSELF and practice loving affirmations and forgiveness to optimize your healing process.

We are now only 5 WEEKS away from NPC in LA! Positive results are starting to show physically, and energy levels are much higher!   Belonging to a very regimented program and increased enthusiasm is obvious at this point and I show my excitement with my progress!

You will also get a glimpse into my most recent visit with my Endocrinologist and the labs and results I received. Learn about changes in thyroid and menopausal hormones (testosterone, estrogen and progesterone) as a result of the healing process.
