I did it

A couple nights ago  I completed Day one of the cleaning challenge, and my sink looks great! Fly lady promised to have my smiling like crazy and it does make me smile. I was surprised.

 
 
There's a glass cup stopping up my sink. We don't have a sink plug. Our drain is too big. No excuses. :)
 


 
 
I wish I took a "before" picture. Oh well. Trust me that it is much prettier now. :)
Tonight's challenge starts the beginning of some new positive habits so I'm excited for that. Baby steps. 
 
 
I also went to kickboxing that night.




It's not something I get to regularly do because of my husbands work schedule and class schedule conflicts so it was nice. It's a late class so I woke up too late today for crossfit but I popped in an insanity DVD and only missed the last few minutes due to a yelling tollder. I'm feeling good. 

This was my breakfast Yesterday:



That is a crustless egg bacon onion quiche. Yes, it's green. Yes, I still ate it. It was amazing. 

Lunch I improvised. And fell in love. I had some greens and brown turkey I brought with me from home, with some veggies thrown on top. I'm not a big ground meat fan and I was worried I didn't have enough protein so I ran to the store and used their salad bar to grab some boiled eggs. I grabbed a cherry chia kombucha while I was there and viola 



Lunch is served. 

I also put stuff aside for a PWO later:


(Avocado, Veggies, and the dreaded ground turkey)

For dressing I have a concoction that I make my own. It's basically half and half grape seed  oil and balsamic vinegar with a little crushed garlic and shallot with thyme mixed in. It's really good. I just googled grapeseed oil salad dressings one day and went from there. 

I am very happy to discover my love for flavored kombucha. 



I have a sad addiction to sugar free red bull and I'm hoping this is going to be a good replacement.




What is on your plate today?

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 …

Fear is a liar.

fear
ˈfir/ noun 1.  an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. "drivers are threatening to quit their jobs in fear after a cabby's murder" synonyms:terrorfright, fearfulness, horroralarmpanicagitationtrepidationdreadconsternationdismaydistress Fear is necessary. It keeps us safe. It helps us think logically about decisions we need to make. But it can also go too far sometimes, or in my case, fear is generally the enemy.


Okay, so you know how fear kind of like nudges you every once in a while and whispers that something is WRONG? and that you need that fear to stay away from unhealthy, downright dangerous things? I had that. About almost everything. My whisper became so loud, I could not hear anything else. It roared instead of tiptoed, it was terror in the face of light, fear in the place of a smile. Nothing was okay and no one could fix it.  For months straight I prayed, I cried, I …
