Whole30 Day 24

Things I'm ready to have back in my life: coconut butter.
Yeah. That's it. Weird right? I ran out of coconut butter and I want more! But I'm refraining so I don't use it as a sugar cop out. I'm hoping to have some Saturday for the Christmas party we are going to though...

Breakfast. Finally eating something besides eggs. I have come to love eggs but I think they are the cause of bloat>:(
Lunch is improvism because I don't have anything except the emergency foods here at the office or my food pouch in the car. I highly suggest having that. I use an insulated 31 lunch bag and fill it with dried fruit pouches, to go almond butter pouches, Lara bars, baby food pouches, rice cakes for the kids, sea snax, and more. 
Salmon salad was lunch. Salmon from a pouch, homemade mayo, onion and peppers and salt pepper onion salt and garlic salt. With half a Granny Smith apple and a bit more almond butter to fill in the gap(pouch was pretty small) 
Snack is a baby purée (pumpkin, sweet potato, blueberry, apple.) and sea snax. Soon after I realized I was missing a protein in said snack so I added almond butter(my only protein available at the moment) with banana and strawberry. Satiating my hunger has become like taking a breath of fresh of breath air. 
....
Dinner was porkchops with mushroom and cauliflower mash.

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 …
