And sometimes you're humbled.

Sometimes you go through life so intent on finding balance, on combating the negative... and you realize you are lacking faith and positivity in a core part of life.

God reminds you.

Sometimes in a sickness. Sometimes through praise & worship. Sometimes through an intense work out session.

Sometimes.

You just hear yourself out loud. Complaining. and it hurts to face it. But you do. It's glaring right at you and you have no other choice but to face it. or go crazy.

So you face it. and you realize you need to take steps, real steps to combat this struggle you are having because you've learned enough to know that this is internal. This is emotional and this is mental and this is spiritual. And this one thing does not have to define you but you allow it to. So you need to fight back. not with anger, hurt, or even force, but to let go. To realize you are not the beginning and the end. That you are not the one in control. nor should you be. Whenever you try to take control do you remember what happens? yeah. I don't think you need a reminder.

But you'll get one. IF you don't stop trying to take the reigns.

This is God's thing. Let him have it.

Humble yourself and realize not everything on this earth will be perfect. How you respond to it will make all the difference.

Sometimes you have a catalyst. And realize that the only way to change things is to change the way you respond to life.

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…

Meal Prep Monday 11/25/13

My days are a haze of dishes laundry sweeping meal prep dog poop people poop making people foods and watching people eat cake and pizza. And Ice cream.  I never realized how much junk food I was surrounded by until very recently.  But it's cool. I have coconut butter, dates, coffee and Lara bars. Life is good. :)
Sun- chicken "fingers" and sweet potato fries with mixed veg.
M- Shrimp and (leftover) chicken and "fried riced cauliflower"
T- chicken tortilla-less soup
W- breakfast for dinner - self explanatory. Easy. Cheap. Favorite.
Th- thanksgiving !! At someone else's house ;)
Fri- taco night. I have renamed pizza night taco night. Because I can. Because I'm mom. This week will be ground turkey tacos because it's the cheapest if bought in  bulk.
Sat- leftovers

Breakfast: I made myself a frittata and  hubby has breakfast sandwiches I make him. He's super picky about healthy foods and if left to his own devices lives off bagel bites and chips. Which …

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…
