Excuse Proofing your diet…

First of all I am going to start by saying it is not a diet it is a lifestyle I will do short cleanses that are strict but anything over that if I find a ton of you can’t have this or that blah blah blah I will not stick with it.


Once you make the decision to change your lifestyle you will need to consider some other things and change your excuses a bit.

“I love food.” Is one I hear a lot. Excuses me so do I. I fucking love to eat. Sometimes it is all I talk about and it happens to be one of my favorite things to do. Im not kidding. Who doesn’t like to eat? When I changed my lifestyle and started the 80/20 rule where I mainly eat healthy and allow a splurge every once in a while (ok sometimes more). Get this… This is AWESOME! I was able to eat MORE!! HOLLA Ive learned that you can make healthy food taste amazing with none of that fake shit!


“I can’t cook, I don’t have time, or don’t know how.” Ever see the Disney movie Ratatouille?  “Everyone can cook!” Its true. Seriously. So you can’t come up with your own recipes. Get a cook book. I love fixate. Also there are a ton of clean eating sites! Google. As for no time. Let me tell you about my friend. The crock pot. Set it and forget it and you can make just about anything in that bad boy!

“I hate the gym/ working out” Do you really have to go to the gym? I don’t I do my workouts right in my living room. There is also taking walks, jogging, throwing an epic dance party in your living room. Rock climbing, play some basketball. Get the picture. Do what you love. As for working out. I don’t necessarily love it. I love how I feel when I am done and what it has done for me. So I have come to some what enjoy it now. Don’t think that there aren’t days that working out is the last thing I want to do. Cause there are. I just go back to Why I started, and then I do it anyway. You won’t get the ass you want by sitting on it.


“I don’t have time to workout, or I need to put my kids first.” Bull shit you don’t make time because its not a priority to you. But you keep on hating on yourself. Love yourself enough to make the time. And me taking 30 min to improve my health will not harm my kids. It makes me a better mom, I am happier, I have more energy, and I have learned to teach them how to love and care for themselves. They know that is my time. And they are a part of my why so how is not working out for them?
“I don’t have the will power.” Take away the temptation! Seriously if you love Cheetos don’t by them. Put fruit out keep an array of healthy foods at your fingertips. Do not go to the grocery store hungry. Read a menu online before you go out when your not starving so you are not tempted to make horrible choices.

“Diets don’t work for me, I have tried everything.” Before I have too. And to be honest diets don’t work for anyone really. You’re thinking the wrong way. You need to change your lifestyle. Live in moderation and if you fuck up which you will cause you are human. Move on. Continue on with your healthy lifestyle. If you have a bad day don’t wake up the next day like. I was so bad yesterday that fuck this I will just continue to be fat. A lot of fitness is mentally how you think of yourself and your outlook on life in general. You know what you do say yesterday was bad, todays a new day I got this! Im gonna kick ass.

I hope this helps and you can start working in a better version of yourself!

Endometriosis Diet

Ok, so if you have read most of my posts you would know that I suffer from Endometriosis. If you have not and this is news to you, first off I would like to say, HOW DARE YOU! Kidding (Read about it here). I know I am not that interesting. So it is completely ok that you do not know this!

I had a partial hysterectomy 9/15/15 to hopefully end the symptoms I was having. This seems kind of extreme, but when you are having cramps so bad that you feel like your in labor and envision yourself physically taking off someones face daily. It sounds way better. Scary I know… My poor family!

After the surgery I felt 100 times better migraines went away so did labor cramps, then last Tuesday an Ovarian Cyst burst. (seriously thought I was dying) Since then I am having symptoms again, great. Called my Doctors yesterday and the nurse said you can be having phantom pains. Well thats just beautiful.

It got me thinking (dangerous pastime I know, name that Disney movie?!)

Sorry, got side tracked…

But I started thinking, I wonder if I could change my diet to help me subside these symptoms. I then googled Endometriosis Diet. What do you know? there is one! And there is a lot of Shit I should be avoiding. Like Gluten, No wonder anytime I eat Pizza or Breads I feel awful! Like I might as well have eaten a brick. Now don’t get me wrong, mama loves pizza, but nothing tastes good enough to feel like that.

If you disagree, theres something wrong with you. hahahaha

Here is what the Endometriosis Diet would look like.

Endo diet

UMMMM that seems like a lot, but it is actually not too far from my current diet. Why do you avoid these?

  • Wheat- Includes bread, cake, and pasta . They contain phytic acid, which can aggravate symptoms. Also they contain gluten which women with endo are sensitive to.
  • Red Meats- causes inflammation and can contain growth hormones.
  • Refined and Concentrated Carbs- includes bread, cake, and pasta most of the nutritional value has been removed.
  • Refined Sugars and Honeys- Causes inflammatory reaction (Certified organic honey is fine)
  • Caffeine- NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  Increases abdominal Cramps and estrogen levels
  • Chocolate – Blah contains Sugar (see above I do however eat a higher % Cacao which has less sugar)
  • Dairy- Causes inflammatory reaction
  • eggs- Unless you get organic (thank god I decided to be a farmer so we get fresh eggs!) they can contain a chemical residue of dioxin.
  • Fried foods- Although these are awesome. Should be avoided most the time anyway!
  • Saturated fats and oils- Stimulate negative inflammatory prostaglandins
  • Soy and Soy protein products- bad… tamari can be used in small bits.
  • Convenience foods-  They are junk!
  • Tinned foods- Use sparingly. There is exceptions like canned tomatoes, and coconut milk.
  • additives and preservatives- HELLO Chemical Overload.
  • Alcohol- Excuse me while I go Cry…….. This consumes your B vitamins stored in the liver, Good liver function is vital to eliminate estrogen from the body.

I wanted to research this! And I am going to try it out for a while. I would rather not feel like crap.
