I will be 46 in June. I'm an editor, a writer, an aunt, a daughter, and a girlfriend. I've been living a vegetarian lifestyle since October 23, 2013. I quit smoking for seven years and then started again in the autumn of 2009. I quit again on September 18, 2013. I still haven't lost all the weight I gained when I originally quit all those years ago, I probably put on 100 pounds that time. I lost about 50 that I mostly kept off until the past year when a lot of emotional baggage came home to roost.

I believe in the Law of Attraction, the power of visualization, meditation and positive affirmations, and that emotional and mental issues surface physically in the body. I have been living with a new physical symptom since January 2015 that I have been visiting an osteopath to treat. I believe in natural medicine, and that the body can heal itself. I don't take medications if it can be avoided. I try to eat organic and non-GMO whenever possible.

    Thank you for reading my blog "I kicked the can!". I appreciate you and your comments. I have added you as a friend.
    Sounds like your having great weather! We have been pretty fortunate so far, until this morning with the cold. The sun was shining though which was a definite bonus.
    You are so right! Inspiration is a daily occurrence here on Spark! It's kept me going too.
    Hugs to you my friend.

    Thank you for commenting on my blog. I am planning to replace my pedometer later on this week when I go for groceries/courses. It really sucks. I have to find a way it won't fall again. I was thinking of making a band that I would attached to my ankle so I don't lose it or drop it again. It's going to be my 4th! Good thing I don't buy expensive ones!
