#KaciDoesKickStart – Navigating Frustrating Stimuli!

Very many times in the past, I have not responded to a frustrating stimulus in the best manner. I will often start dumping the thoughts in my head (which are unsane as @DrKashey would say and emotion driven) immediately out into words. This does not help in any capacity. It only makes my frustration worse…

Power Foods of the Pros

I’ve shared before how I have struggled with chronic fatigue syndrome since childhood. I’ve been to many medical practitioners and no one can seem to find a root cause or solution.

These are essentially all of the other benefits come packaged along with making positive changes (besides just the desired outcomes those changes themselves bring). The purpose of having these handy…

#KaciDoesKickStart

Every decision that we make will either move us in the direction of the outcome we are after, or further away from it. There’s no standstill. Even with a thought, every time you repeat it, you reinforce it….

#KaciDoesKickStart

Never in my life have I seen a kitchen scale like this! Some of these measurements I’ve never even heard of before, but what really blew me away was it measures down to the 10th of a gram! If the basic tools for the Trevor Kashey Nutrition KickStart Program are this freaking on point, can…
