Welcome

I'm not sure how people make a welcome post on a blog? But here I am. Flaws and all :)
My name is Alicia. My blog is called "Tho she be but little" Which I derived from the shakespeare quote "Though she be but little, she is fierce!!"(Midsummer night's dream) I am a very short, small 26 year old woman, and my whole life I have been called "tiny but tough". I take that as a compliment. I stand at a mere 5'2" and in my twenties I have met many people my height or shorter than me, but my height still seems to be capitalized on :) I'll take it. I'm comfortable short.

Aside from being short, I also enjoy being a mom to my two beautiful little girls. We will call them Angel and Sunshine. Angel is 7 and the sweetest girl you ever met. She will paint you a picture and let you cry on her shoulder and help you with anything that is needed. Sunshine is a firecracker. She is somethign fierce and still has a heart of gold. If she wants something, she gets it. If you're hurt she says "sorry". If she is mad, sad, happy... she shows it. She is two. These girls are my world. We made a family. Then along came my handsome husband, B. He's pretty amazing. He compliments us all well and has a wonderful heart.

My family is my reason. For everything. But I also enjoy writing(something I have long lost the time and patience for) reading, playing sports, lifting weights, finding recipes for healthy foods, and of course, I love Jesus. this blog is dedicated to all of these things.

I am juggling a full time job, mommy-hood, wifely duties, relationships, my own personal passions, and my relationship with Christ all at the same time. I feel unorganized and always running behind. But.. I am learning to smile through it all. What is life if it is not enjoyed? lived? Felt with passion? I am here to feel that passion and share it at the same time. enjoy :)

Just another story.

I have been told telling my story will help.. people. I don't see how that is the case but I figure there is some reason I have dealt with the things that I have. So I'll start out simple.


Anxiety.


Crippling. Suffocating. Like a straight jacket warn under water.


Sounds so dramatic. So exaggerated. But it's so real. There's a quote that describes it perfectly "You don't need water to feel like you're drowning, do you?" no. I don't.


I've always had anxiety. for as long as I remember. After I had my youngest child it got significantly worse. It was no longer a panic attack that I would get over once I figured out or was proven everything would be okay. It was tightness in my chest all night and I didn't know why. It was someone is going to get sick and I know that will kill us all. It was sleeping in his room every night for months. It was waking up every few hours to check his breathing. It was my daughter has a sore tooth it's all goi…

society is an asshole.

Guys. I've never been much of a blogger on facts. I've never been a blogger that's great at  being consistent.. In fact I seem to get passionate or be "set off" by generally the same things throughout the years, so I tend to avoid blogging, to be honest. But guys... girls.... general population: THIS needs to be said.




I am not sorry for being who I am. You should not be either.






Reads simply, right? It is a very common and popular perspective in the internet world these days. It should be. But as much as we write it. say it. hear it. read it.... it's still seems to be a struggle. WHY? .... society, guys. Society is an asshole. Media WANTS us to not be okay with our bodies. The retail world wants us to go into debt being unsatisfied with what we already have. This society has been set up to make us unsatisfied unless we consume, consume, consume, need, need, need, and hate ourselves, our personalities, our bodies. because that means we are constantly trying to …

Whole30 again? Why?

I'm on day 9 of a whole30. I've done them before and I eat FAIRLY decent(I have my moments) but I felt like it was time to do another.
I was feeling fatigued, anxious, depressed, and my skin was atrocious. I wasn't sleeping well and my hormones were very obviously out of whack. I know a whole 30 improves all of these things so much so my goal was to just jump in and do one. I know how this goes, I've read all the books, I've done a handful of them within the last few years, and I am not new to meal prep. In fact, I have had several false starts in all of January and February of 2017 and I meal prepped almost every weekend of said months. My best friend said that she was ready to do one after a long time of considering it and I jumped on board. Something clicked this time and I have so far been successful.
Why am I doing it this time.
Besides the obvious benefits everyone explains about a whole30, I specifically wanted to feel my best mentally and physically because…
