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
Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI’s executive vice president and artistic director, conceptualized the ad campaign centering on the theme of “Endurance” after spotting athletes during the London Olympics wearing patriotic nail designs.
Gabby‘s ad will be showcased in the December issues of Bon Appétit magazine, Essence, Health, Lucky, O, and Real Simple.
Go, Gabby, go!
The McKayla Maroney/Aliya Mustafina competition for Most Epic Resting Bitchface is my favorite Olympic event. They are both so talented.
To be honest I am almost more happy that Mustafina won, because Gabby’s already got two medals. And I just love that icy Russian bitch.
Destinee Hooker is really hot. And she has the best name.
Openly sobbing about the Magnificent 7.
Interviewer: “What would be a reason not to go to the gym?”
To be honest, Mustafina is rapidly becoming one of my favorites. I love that she is not a robot- she shows how she feels, intensely in an intense situation. I am way, way into her.
It always throws me off that “God Save the Queen” is the same tune as “My Country ‘Tis of Thee.”
First of all, the shade this girl throws is glorious. Her bitchface gives me life. Second of all, this moment was incredible.
