Whole30 Day13: November 2013

My biggest struggle? Eating breakfast on time. I'm thinking ill prep a permade breakfast for this week. 
My skin is looking good enough in the mornings that I'm comfortable with makeup on and it's not oily like it used to be. 

But my skin changes drastically with hormones so I am waiting to celebrate. 

Carnitas with two eggs veggies and salsa. 
And a full plate of fruit. Because I can. 
These are mini plates btw. 
Coconut milk in my coffee. 
Lunch looks gross but it was good. Leftover mushroom chicken spinach with bell peppers and onions stir fried with some coconut aminos and yellow mustard. A needed a new taste :) 
I had a spoonful of almond butter before hand so hopefully that covered my fat until I can get some avocados. 
Can we talk non food? I forced myself to take a break today and it didn't involve food or tv or planning. That's a big deal. It did however, involve reading, tea, and an epsom salt bath. It is nice to breathe instead of focusing on the nearest thing with sugar and carbs. 
Today's to do list does involve kombucha tea and bone broth making :) 
Dinner was paleo chicken nuggets and sweet potato fries, a spoonful of coconut butter. Maybe 2. And a pitted date. Or two.

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.


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.

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 …
