One bite at a time, one step at a time, one day at a time...

I stress eat. I mindlessly eat. Each day I make a decision to do neither...to journal or do chores around the house, to eat without distractions.

I''ve had some major life changes over the past year: marriage, three job changes, moved, and am trying to sell my house. Having to be at work by 5:30 has really killed my morning workouts and has added a second "breakfast" that needs to go back to snack proportions. Still trying to get into some semblance of a routine that includes exercise since I've gained back 20 of the pounds I'd lost.

I'd been mostly off processed/added sugars (except for rare/occasional pure maple syrup, honey, or organic evaporated cane sugar) and artificial sweeteners. My stress eating has gone from a Little Ceaser’s cheese pizza to a HaloTop ice cream (saving about 30+weight watcher points). I've greatly reduced intake of processed foods. Time to work on portion control and tracking. Oh...and meal planning!

I can do this!!!




Member Since: 3/16/2011

My Goals:
1. integrate a regular exercise schedule into my week.
2. Cut out sugar and artificial sweeteners, processed foods.
3. Identify at least 3 alternatives to stress eating and start using them.
4. Learn how to do weekly meal planning.


My Program:
Food--resume tracking what I eat; eating a mostly whole food plant based diet; drinking at least 2 liters of water a day.

Exercise--aiming for at least 15 min in on the treadmill before I go to work and/or outside on the way home from work. Must get backside moving again!

Wellness-- 7-8 hours of sleep, time each day for spiritual practice, and returning balance to my life.



Personal Information:
I grew up in Georgia, moved out to Seattle for 18 years, and am now back in Georgia still trying to acclimated after being back for 10 yrs. I’ve got an awesome husband that’ll get up and make me coffee at 3 or 4 am when I’ve got to be at work at 4:30 or 5:30 depending on which clinic I’m at. I've got four psychokitties that are always helping me with something. I'm working on a home garden, slowly expanding each season. I’ve got lots of interests and nothing will snap me out of the blues like conversations on earthquakes, volcanoes, or plate tectonics.


Other Information:
I love reading anything having to do with the mind-body-spiritual connection. I loved the movies “Kundun” and "What the Bleep do We Know" My two other favorite movies are "Peaceful Warrior” and "Volcano." I’ve also become interested in diet and lifestyle and how both affect our overall health and wellbeing as well as how both can be used to help us heal.

    Kim, ghostly greetings! Carve out your day with positivity. Rattle your bones with exercise activities. Brew your cauldron with healthy menu potions. Have a TERROR-ific and BOO-tiful Halloween!


    I'm wishing you frightfully fun from my sparkpage to yours.
    I embrace you with monster hugs for Halloween night.
    BEWARE to avoid the awakened Spirits cemetery tours.
    As this year brings haunted houses, ghoulish costumes and screaming delight.

    The brewing cauldrons are overflowing with healthy potions galore.
    "Hang around for a spell!" the witches will cackle.
    Bats flying, spider webs spinning and creepy crawlers soon join the horror.
    Let's just hope, the rattling skeletal bodies do not unshackle.

    Hours away, the spooktacular fun will be here.
    It is October 31st, I send you this haunting greeting.
    Be sure to watch for costumed children to appear.
    Wishing you a BOO-tiful Halloween of trick-or-treating!

    Yeah, "music therapy" helps me every time; I don't know why I have to always re-learn that tool. I obviously can't just blast music at work, but I now always have some earbuds in my purse and music on my cellphone, so I can have a listen.

    Hi There, Thanks for the visit to my blog which is team assignment based on a book by Dr. Judith Beck, The Beck Diet Solution. It uses Cognitive Behavior Techniques to help change habits or to deal with issues. I noticed some twelve step slogans on your page. I have been in AA for 27 years and there are a lot of similarities between suggestions from that program and Beck's work. If you decide to look into it keep in touch. I am adding you as a friend. You sure look like someone who should be my Spark Pal
    Great to meet you here.
