Time to Bridge the Gap

Got Monkey?
Eat That Monkey’s focus this month is to make health our #1 priority and ask ourselves, “How differently would I eat, drink, exercise and act if I thought of my body as a temple, precious and valuable?”

How do you achieve Success? Do the easy things. Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals. What IS difficult is heart attack, liver failure, diabetes, high blood pressure, dieting, disappointment; that is hard.

Everything we would ever need to become successful is within our reach. The major reason that so few take advantage of being successful is simply, neglect. The Easy things are also easy Not to do.


So when given the choice of “easy to” or “easy not to” do, what will you choose? Because that choice could potentially be life-changing.

I want to look GOOD!


I think exercise is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. There is no greater FEELING in the world. Feeling! When you workout without mirrors and are forced to feel…man oh man…YESSSSSSSS!!!!!!!! In that moment, it doesn’t matter what you look like. You are one with the music, the room, the energy…that’s what exercise is suppose to be. Lose yourself in the moment and know that right then, you are amazing. In that moment…all things are possible.

The Way of The Spartan…Joe De Sena Great Quote!

Joe De Sena “…I realized it was time to start losing some of the things that are non-core – distractions that are easy to get sucked up in. Money, cars, none of it matters if you don’t have time. So if that’s taking time from me, then who gives a fuck if I sell it? I need to get my time back.”

Mindless Eating

Mind Refresher…Get Your Head In the Game

You do not need all the answers, and today is the day to stop using that as an excuse. Begin to acknowledge and deal with the root cause of your underlying issues. Until you take responsibility of self, success is as temporary as the change itself. Be prepared to do the work and prepare to change your behaviors for the long haul.  Weight is a manifestation of the “root cause”…your underlying issues.

Eat, Train, Live…as you intend to continue

It has become less about what I look like physically and more about what I can DO physically. I love a great workout, not because of the calories I can burn, but the ass kicking I complete. I love the moans and groans, puddles of sweat, not sure if I can do another rep of it all. And I wake up, go about my day and look forward to the healthful food and physical challenge. Find the joy in it all and you will find peace…I promise!

How Far Would YOU Go to Lose Weight?

Flash forward a year to me, jabbing a syringe full of a “fat-melting” hormone into my thigh—despite some serious health risks and zero proof it even worked—and starving myself silly. It went against everything I believed in. Cheating at anything, including weight loss, was something only shameful people did. I have a strong work ethic. I always do things the “right” way. So how the hell did I get here?

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!
