I'm Angelica aka Petunia102. I'm a teacher, a wife and I have five dogs and a super awesome cat. In the hours of not doing schoolwork, I enjoy knitting and reading. My reading tastes vary depending on my mood. I do enjoy history. Some of my favorite television programs include: Colombo, Rockford Files (I'm dating myself aren't I?), Psych, Supernatural, True Blood, Boardwalk Empire, and Walking Dead.

I have a horrible habit of setting off the smoke alarm when I cook. Do you see that little black dog on the left panel? That's Tony. He shakes when he sees I'm getting ready to cook because I have set off the smoke alarm several times and he hates the sound. This past summer, I have been teaching myself how to cook without using the smoke alarms. I'm really excited about that and so is Tony!

My Program:
I really have been influenced by Dr. Neal Barnard and Dr. Dean Ornish. I've been sticking to a mostly vegan diet and I have enjoyed it so far (I'm close to completing my 3rd week of this type of diet).

    I found you because Spark recommended you as a possible "friend." I clicked on your Spark Page and started smiling at all the animal photos, and then had a good morning laugh at your smoke alarm story. I love your sense of humor and can see from your furry family that you have a great heart!

    Thanks for the friend add and right back at ya! I am glad you found things on my page that sound helpful to you. Feel free to steal shamelessly because I stole them from others on this site. If you are looking for answers to your struggles, I highly recommend joining the At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance team. Many of us on the team aren't close to goal at all but they have much to teach. There you will find true heroes who have made it through the forest to maintenance and they have the answers we seek. Read their blogs and subscribe to their blogs so you will get an email when they post. I have been richly blessed and my journey is so much easier because I joined this team.
    I like to keep the emphasis on positive. It is so easy to be blown off course and fall into The Pit of Despair. Being positive helps me pick myself up, dust myself off and find my way back to the journey path to success.
    Hope you are have a stellar week.
