Almost Meal prep Monday.

Yesterday was a day off. A very Rare day off. Because even on weekends and holidays, it never seems relaxing around here.
But Yesterday... We had no plans. We did nothing except cooked a few things and cleaned up a bit, the girls got some crafts done...
It was nice.
But.
I am so happy to be back to reality today.
I miss my kids, but I like routine. I thrive on it, actually.

So basically today is the best day of the month for me. Sort of. My head is the clearest and most level headed today than it will be all month. My cycle takes a pretty big toll on my mental well being, and today is relieving to say the least.
A good day to eat clean, be positive, schedule, and meal plan:


I made this over the weekend. Once in a while this is what meal preps look like for me. And it never goes to any other stages. This week, however, it will evolve as finances, and inspiration hits. It will change the way it needs to for our schedule and needs.
We have an extremely busy fall season around here. Lots of birthdays, an anniversary, holidays, school, etc... , so working with what we already have is what needs to be done. 
So I looked in the cabinets and fridge and figured it out. 
True life. 
 
We will utilize eggs as much as possible, and might even (gasp) used some canned food in the cabinets. (Pasta anyone?) not me. I'd rather eat the same food over and over than gorge myself on pasta and bread. Believe me. I had cake and pizza over the weekend. I don't want that feeling back.... 
But I still have to eat what I have. And this is how we get creative with it. :)

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 …
