I didn’t sleep well last night.
Went on the road with Kris and Mom yesterday. #funshit… and nyam raasclaat chic-fil-a again.
chic-fil-a (which I will not capitalize) = Bubbleguts. Ugh. #sickfila

- Got up with belly angst at 6:30AM today
- Came down to the kitchen around 7 to make tea
- Shat out my tripe around 8AM. #unfunshit
- Writhing in discomfort since then (it’s 11AM now).
This self-induced bubbleguts (SIB Syndrome) ends toooday, nikkuh!
Hello. My name is Akilah, and I am a SIBS-aholic.
Recovery started today, and as I approach 40, I surrender.
Not the defeat type though; this surrender is rooted in power.
And by power, I mean the power to begin again.
There are 75 days between today and my 40th birthday,
and I’ll use them to begin my healing/sustaining work in these areas:
FOOD AS FUEL:
- Simple meals (fewer ingredients)
- Feelings: Checking in to see how certain foods make me feel
- Plants: Eat things that grow on trees. Also, chllorophyl is bae. Indulge.
- Alcohol: 31-day fast from yo’ ass, starting 8.1
- Intermittent Fasting: Has helped me with digestion before. Back for more.
- Timing: Nothing but water sips 2 hours before bed
- Fucking French Fries: Gweh nuh! You’re banished (for 31 days)
- Oils: Particularly the ones in chips. I fucking love chips. They hate me tho.
- Healing herbs from Dr. Eshe (Herb Sistah)
- Light and reminders from Queen Afua
- Food as fuel (even when I’m turnt, this includes chicken and waffles, and peach cobbler. fuck.)
- Stick with my 15-25 minute most days mojo
- Get dis pull-up werk,doe!
- Headstands feel hella like Goddess work somehow. Up deh.
- Yogafit with Veronica more often. #funshit
- Again with the Goddess work!
- Capsule wardrobe for these 75 days
- Borrow, don’t buy. Lend more, too.
- I only need black high tops in life. Find some.
…and maybe I’ll need a winter coat this year.
…and a full-length mirror (for dancing, obvs!)
- Eat minimalist style (few ingredients, intermittent fasting)
- Podcast on hiatus while I build it up/out
- Get help, ooman! Between Cyn and Simbi, I’m skrizzy.
- Write di shit outta mi unschooling book
- Art show mojo is in full swing (collabohm)
So yeh, a dis mi deh pon, straight.
Mi mind an mi body cyaan wait.
Every day I’ll share a bit.
Every day I’ll shed a bit
Less not-it shit,
more mindful, minimalist mojo.
Go Goddess, go!
