I Want It All! Oh, wait. I Have It ALL!


Almost weekly I run across these articles weighing in on the subject of having it all. Who do these people think they are? How can any other human being weigh in on what “it all” means for another person. Why are these articles specific about women? As though men have exclusivity on this “privilege”. And why is it that we talk about having it all as it applies to women with children. Are women without children automatically assumed to “have it all” or are they unable to contend since they don’t have children?

This is one of the stupidest subject matters ever…yes…ever! The only person that can determine “it all” is you. I have it all…had it all before my son…and have more of it all after my son was born. Some days are sheer perfection, while others…total shit. Does this change having it all? No. My work..your work…to do it all better…every day. I can not be boxed, categorized or labeled…and neither should you.

Stop writing such absurd pieces and start recognizing that no two people are the same and that everyone’s definition of “it all” is different…and SHOULD be.

Screw you and your “you can or can’t have it all” and get a life! I am the most untogether, together person I know and I have sooooo much room for improvement. And I do…work to improve every day. Some days I work to improve my attitude, while others to be a better Mom or a better partner. Some days I feel like an Umpaloompa, while others I feel like the badass, kick-ass woman that I know I truly am. Now pardon me while I return to my little piece of perfection, chaos, mess, clean, laundry, playlists, tears, laughter, whatever might be happening at this moment wonderful life of mine.

Peace OUT!

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!
