Went well today, except I had a lot of pain after dinner. I think it was mainly due to the fact that my dinner was three times the sizes of any of my other meals! And, I didn’t drink nearly enough water. Oops.

Woke up leaner than I have in months, thanks to all the bloating going down. 

I’m loving this!

Overall, I’m feeling less overwhelmed than I was before. 

I didn’t completely stick to it either. One, the kitkat was everything I’m not supposed to have haha. I had some mild pain, nothing likes its been. 

AND I had garlic with NO ISSUE. Which is AWESOME! I seriously thought that would be the end of me- I put garlic in EVERYTHING. However, I am going to limit the amount of garlic I use, since maybe it’s a how much thing. 

I also got to Yoga, which always relaxes me. 

I’m generally feeling better. Going to a nutritionist next week to see what other options I can play around with!













Better You

I’ve been living on my own for almost 4 years now and I have like 50 tabs open.

Bless the person who put together this post, it ought to be made into a pamphlet for everyone in highschool/college.


Everyone needs this.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”

Hippocrates was definitely on to something. Have you ever wondered why some people are always full of energy, always on the go, don’t need a lot of sleep and are rarely if ever sick?

Most people don’t realize how much the pH level of the food you eat and your body affects your organs and immune system. The typical western diet of processed and fried foods, refined grains, meat, dairy, and sugar are extremely acidic and result in acidic residues after digestion. As our body is approximately 20 percent acidic and 80 percent alkaline it’s recommended that we eat approximately 20 percent acidic foods and 80 percent alkaline foods too.  Nearly all of our physiological functions, including immune system, cardiovascular and digestive functions including most of our enzyme and metabolic processes require that our bodily pH is slightly alkaline. This prevents diseases since most bacteria and viruses can not survive in an alkaline state.  Also, organs within our digestive system, such as the pancreas, have functions to balance the pH of the digesting food.  The pancreas releases sodium bicarbonate into the small intestine to neutralize the stomach acids.  Eating acidic foods puts futher stress on the pancreas and can actually cause diabetes.  Eating alkaline foods removes this stress from the pancreas and allows it to function properly.  An overly acidic system could lead to symptoms like lack of energy, fatigue, digestive disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, allergies, respiratory ailments, depression, colds, flu and other chronic illness. Another affect of having an acidic body is that calcium is pulled from your bones to balance the pH which can cause bone loss.

It’s worth remembering that the pH of the food item itself may not be accurately reflective of its affect on the body.  For example, citris fruits are naturally very acidic, however, when they are digested, they have an alkalizing affect on the body.  Therefore, oranges, graprefruits, and lemons are considered alkaline foods because of the affect they have on your body’s pH level, not by their natural pH level.

Here are some of my favourite alkaline recipies:

Tamari Pumpkin Seeds

I love adding pumpkin seeds to jazz up salads and pasta dishes and I recently found out that they have the added bonus of also being the only seeds that are alkaline formingIf you want to give them an extra kick try dry roasting them in a frying pan and then adding 1-2 tsp of tamari or soy sauce.

Lemon Water

Lemons are veritable wonders. Not only do they top the list of the most alkaline forming foods but lemon juice is high in vitamin C, B6, calcium, potassium, copper, thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, iron and magnesium.  If that wasn’t enough it also has great digestive qualities and can help cleanse the body of toxins.


Greens are the highest alkaline-forming foods and they are full of vitamins A, K, and D so adding a spinach salad (spinach, walnuts, lemon juice  and avocado) to your meal is an excellent way to alkalize your diet.


Millet is punchy powerfood, the only alkalizing grain and is a great source of protein. It has a sweet nutty flavor and is considered to be one of the most digestible and non-allergenic grains available.

FINALLY went to the doctors. I have IBS. It explains a lot. 

Moving to a low FODMAP diet to see how that helps!

I’m excited to finally feel better, and overwhelmed at the thought of not eating avo or apples :/ hopefully I can add them back in!


Bright side is, I HAVE to make time to take care of myself. No more excuses. 

Plus, yoga in encouraged!

I’m trying to make a promise to myself to really stick to FODMAP for the full 6 weeks AND to update with what’s going on here- to be more accountable. 


We are the creators of the world around us. Our beliefs and actions vibrate and spiral right back to us.
Do you serve to connect, to love, and to bring peace?
Or are you a slave to dramatics, to competition, and negativity?
When we enslaves ourselves to being heavy, we are plagued. It’s hard to be light when we are weighted down with darkness. To be in the light, we are free. There’s no weight to carry and only love to give.
We can choose to be energy suckers or energy givers. Tune in to what it is you are serving. Your frequency follows your flow. #lovealltheway

my name is natalie and i’m fat. i’ve been more fat than i am now. i have been less fat. i’ve been the same fat. i’m fat from the side, fat from the front, fat from the back…you get the point.

fat girls have been lied to over and over in many ways our whole fat existences - told that we are restricted to certain styles/trends of clothing because anything too tight/short/revealing isn’t ‘flattering’. told that we should be glad to be hit on/cat-called by creepy men because hey, at least it’s something, right?! told that the world isn’t open to us and that we can’t be incredible creatures because we’re fat. told that we’re ugly/undesirable/weak/stupid/disgusting. told that we don’t deserve to be loved…or even to live.

it’s not true. none of it is true.

people ask me often - “i hate myself. how do you do it?” it’s simple.

one day, i decided that i was worth greatness, whatever size i was or wasn’t.

i wish i could go back to awkward, shy 13 year old me, look her dead in the eye and tell her that she. is. perfect. tell her that she can go anywhere, be anyone, wear anything and that she will always be important and will never, ever, ever be merely ‘the fat girl’.

i won’t drown in sweat in texas summers to cover my fat arms in sweaters or shield my thunder thighs from the spring breeze just because you don’t want to see them. my fat arms and thunder thighs have always been here for me when much of the world wasn’t. i won’t be beat down by people who do not care if i cry myself to sleep at night.

my mom has always told me that i am my biggest fan and ya know what?

she’s right.

you’re allowed to feel good. don’t let anyone take that away from you.
