Letters to me.

Hi.

I woke up... on the wrong side of the bed.
I was much more calm and collected than I would have been in the past, but I was uneasy, antsy, rushed, impatient... you get the picture.

I still haven't learned how to not emotionally eat.

The good news is most junk is out of my house. Which means it is not an option.

The bad news is I pass by a million 7-11s on the way to work and my willpower is weaker on some days than others.

I had a donut. which is no big deal, right? But for me it is. Because a donut in the morning leads to, and ice cream sandwich when I get into work. Then after I eat lunch I want another ice cream sandwich. And my resolve is weak at that point. I haven't had enough water... It's just an "off" day. I know. But I don't like how I feel.

Tired.

Annoyed.

Cloudy Brain.

Live. Learn. eat bon bons. wait. no. dogon it. :)


Yesterday went well. Kind of. I came home to dinner looking like this:








But I transformed it to this:












The kids had grilled cheese. They were happy. This lifestyle isn't normal to them. still. that's okay.. I just want to give them a foundation. Knowledge on how to eat healthy and why.


It all sounds so stupid.


There's more to life.


Yes, I know.


But I am passionate about the fact that what we put into our bodies effects us SO much!
What is readily available now a days is not natural.
If we just eat what is... we are good. Our brains work right. Our bodies function well.
Add these natural, whole foods onto a regular exercise regimen and bam... you're a new person.

Eating correctly combats Depression, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, ADD, Low energy, and more. These are just some of the things I have personal experience with.

But all these foods that I no longer want to put into my body, at least not regularly, are addicting. It's HARD to keep them out of my diet. It's hard to crave them and resist because you know it's what is best for you. I don't have a lot of willpower when it comes to food. But I'm working on it. It's difficult to be that weirdo eating different than other people. It sucks being labeled, pointed at, criticized, and even laughed at just for choosing to eat food in it's purest form.

But I feel better when I eat right.

Everyone's version of healthy is different. Mine happens to be this.

I am having an off day.

the end.

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…
