I'm Kate. I used to not eat. I had Anorexia Nervosa and got very sick and hated my life. A few years ago I began a recovery process, which I believe is a lifelong deal. I'm still in the process of healing my mind, body, and spirit, and there are a lot of things that help me do this. Here is a short list!
-Buddhist Mindfulness practice, meditation, Radical Acceptance, praying, the Psalms
-Food. Lots of it. Mostly only the delicious kind.
-Exercise. Lots of it. Mostly only the fun kind. A jezziefriend called it Slayer Training, which I joyfully stole. If you don't know what this means, don't worry. If you do, I love you.
-Therapy (still. I think it might never end.)
-Having good friends and family, both IRL and on the wonderwebs (*trademark, my brother.)
-12 Step recovery principles (but I am not a Big Book Thumper, so please don't be afraid.)
This will be a place for me to dump copious amounts of recipes (the good and the bad), talk about spirituality and what I learn in my weekly sitting group, repost inspiring and awesome quotes and stories, and share ridiculous and/or obscene pictures, gifs, and assorted other whatnots. That's how I roll. I hope you will enjoy.
Ask me anything
What a cutie!!
I’m not saying I follow Janelle Monae on Instagram but… I follow Janelle Monae on Instagram and I squeed out loud when I saw this last night.
Objectively the best Christmas song.
Upside of standstill traffic: I can take pictures of the snow.
I’m stuck in horrible snow related traffic behind a stupid person.
Children don’t eat sunlight, stupid person. They aren’t like flowers. Unless you’re personally willing to feed every unwanted child in the world you can miss me with your weird ass analogies.
Ryan and I are snugging with the little old lady and we keep saying “she’s extra tiny tonight isn’t she?” “Yes, yes I think she’s gotten smaller.”
Bed time with the Old Lady
Lets all take a minute and realize the lack of creativity in the name “fire place”.
In March, there were 58 cases alone in Brooklyn, N.Y., tied to a Jewish community that refused or delayed vaccinations. In Texas, a megachurch that preached anti-vaccination views had an outbreak with at least 20 cases. In North Carolina, 23 cases were reported in one outbreak; most of them in a religious (Hare Krishna) community that was largely unvaccinated.
Well, shit. Add these to the cookie list.
