What are the priorities in your life? What is the best outcome you could imagine? And most importantly, overcoming self-limiting beliefs is a must. Stop the negative self-talk.

I love you, I love you not, I love you….

I have a great deal of knowledge when it comes to grasping at the “next thing” to try control a problem and match the image I created for myself in my head. Which is why I know that most of the companies that are out there, that exist to “aid” in your weight loss journey are so very tempting and an “easy sale” for many.

What did I really need to be doing?

What Do You Consider a Clean, Healthy Diet?

I’m fascinated by nutritional science; however, I’ve also acquired a healthy skepticism about how much and how little they know, and whose interest is best being served. It doesn’t really even matter how much “science” is behind any of these products. What does matter is why you feel the need to spend your money on them and what is truly going on that you have difficulty managing.

To P90X or Not…My Initial Assessment

P90X is time consuming, but if you want the success touted by their informercials, you have to commit and make the time to do it. It is a serious commitment. If you want the results to be permanent, then the lifestyle, the nutritional program and exercise must also be permanent. If your desire is simply to look better for an “event,” then I think you need to check your ego and decide what is truly important to you. We all have an element of vanity and desire to look good. However, please carry on today as you intend to continue in the future.

Why EatThatMonkey.tv?

Because Life doesn't get Better...You DO!

This site is for everyone, regardless of age or gender; it is for the individual whose best is under construction and wants to lead a life of optimal health and true happiness. EatThatMonkey.tv is not about fad diets and one-size-fits-all fitness, it is about optimizing health and performance of Body (using the I.I.T Method), Mind (Got Monkey?) and Soul (food for the soul-because good health starts from the inside out). These elements don’t operate independently. We will also discuss real issues that real people face regarding body image, sleep, relationships, parenting, what happens behind closed doors, and all other things related to “life.”

I spent so many years hating my body and not accepting it as it was. To compensate for my horrible self-image and lack of self-esteem, I took fat burners, went on every ridiculous diet on the market, over exercised after binging, and even went so far as taking hypo-thyroid medication to lean down to manage an out-of-control over eating problem. I did myself a great deal of emotional and physical damage with that state of mind. My journey, my transformation has been a lot of trial and error. I live it every day. I am a human being that struggles with the same choices as everyone else and knows how to facilitate change and create a life of total wellness.

Through a great deal of self-analysis and personal responsibility I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and become a better version of myself. The road was not always smooth and it took a significant amount of effort, but every step along the way has been worth every ounce of tears, sweat, and effort that I put in. Now, I want YOU to reach down deep and find the desire to uncover and unleash the most amazing version of yourself!
