My Program:
I'm signed up for premium coaching to help me get fired up about learning to take better care of myself! I enter my own foods according to the Spark suggested nutritional guidelines and find inspiration in the meal plans.

Personal Information:
My career is settled and stable, nearly five years at a small Lutheran childcare - I've been lucky, if stressed, to work through quarantine. The pandemic did end up giving me a couple semesters off school, where I've been taking one class a term in order to finish new education requirements in Washington state. I have a stable living environment with a lot of garden that I've been neglecting but really like maintaining. I have an established, sexy friendship with a neat fellow I used to see more regularly before the pandemic, and even though we see each other far less often, our friendship has remained lovely and reliable. I'm in regular phone contact with my mom and my aunt. I have reliable, if bare bones, health insurance (no dental anymore, thanks recent changes in healthcare law, but maybe that will come back soon?). I have chronic back pain, diagnosed depression and anxiety that I medicate fairly successfully. Navigating symptoms of plantar fasciitis I'd prefer to ignore, but igno

Other Information:
I used to be involved with Codependents Anonymous and hosted a weekly workbook group for two years; I miss those friendships. For all that I have and work toward, I think I'm somehow quite lonely. Thank you for sharing the spark!
