Get a FUC*@&$ Life!

There are very few things that really ruffle my tail feathers and while that may seem crazy for someone as passionate as myself, it’s the truth. But this past week has been one in which I absolutely cannot bite my tongue. And such stupidity when there is real madness in the world.

What the hell is wrong with people. I’m not quite sure what people expect of one another.

Kim Kardashian. The name elicits some pretty strange emotions from people. Why? I haven’t the faintest. If you really don’t care for Kim Kardashian then why give her even a moment of your time? You Kim bashers are typically the same to blame the fashion industry and magazines for the growing “thin” “fat” debates that ruin our young girls images of themselves. News Flash…magazines print what the consumers buy. You can throw your hands up and demand something greater and more sophisticated and more “equal”, but let’s face it, no one wants to buy fat people and “ugly”. Harsh isn’t it. But true. People are buying the image of “perfection”. Although, the only image that matters is the one you see and whether or not you love that image…this goes deeper than the physical. I happen to think any form the body has is beautiful; however, I have never bought a magazine because of the cover photo. I believe in content…in the flesh, and certainly in text.

Sadly, we don’t buy the before picture, we buy the after. I became painfully aware of this when publishing my own book and criticized for its cover. Erica, no one wants to buy a self-help, wellness book with a fat person on it. I explained that an individual gains control of their life when they are heavy, not once they lost the weight…blah, blah, blah. I still stand behind what I printed and why. But I’m also not buying garbage because of who is selling something or what they look like. I do believe every BODY is beautiful. I do believe that is you do not like what you see than you had better take action.

But DO NOT EVER criticize another human being for their choices. Like them or not. And I am talking about adults that have the ability to make their own choices and live with the outcome of those choices.

By the way, confidence is built and reinforced in the home. How many times have you spoken about dieting, being fat, clothes not fitting, etc. Do you think your children hear you? Listen to you? Repeat you? I’m sorry, but image is learned in the home and reinforced by your actions. Want real change? Start changing your own conversation. Your own actions.

Stop bashing the decisions of other grown individuals. I believe that your disgust, hate, anger, disdain…whatever it may be…projection- often the result of a lack of insight and acknowledgement of one’s own motivations and feelings is the real issue here. Deal with your own inadequacies and unhappiness. Look in the mirror. True confidence lifts others, speaks positively.

Life is short. Life is Beautiful. Life is a Gift. Spend your time, your energy, your precious gift on making your self better, in lifting others, on being the example.

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!
