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 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''m off processed/added sugars (except for rare/occasional pure maple syrup, honey, or organic evaporated cane sugar) and artificial sweeteners since 1/13/15. I''ve greatly reduced intake of processed foods. Time to work on portion control and tracking. 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, and if I'm going to eat meat it can only be organic.
3. Identify at least 3 alternatives to stress eating and start using them.
4. Learn how to do weekly meal planning.

My Program:
Food--track what I eat; cut out sweets and sodas; more fresh fruits and vegetables, foods with few additives/little processing, drink at least 2 liters of water a day.

Exercise--aiming for at least 15 min in on the treadmill before I go to 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. I've got three psychokitties that are always helping me with something. I'm working on a home garden, slowly expanding each season.

I will ALWAYS be a Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket!

Other Information:
I love reading anything having to do with the mind-body-spiritual connection. I loved the movie "What the Bleep do We Know" My two other favorite movies are "Kundun" and "Volcano"

    I hope you give Beck a try. Quite a few Sparkies are losing a lot of weight or keeping it off wit the tools. A few of us are doing a refresher and I am only on Day 5 tomorrow. You could follow along too!

    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!
