All About Me and My Habits
Hi. I’m Sherri and I started this Blog about habits.I live in Washington with my husband and two children. After having the baby and going back to work we realized my being away was not a good thing. My hormones went a little haywire. I’m struggling to get those under control. Between the new baby, my two-year-old and my husband I had more than enough reasons to not want to be at the day job anymore. So I turned in my notice and quit.
This site is about love, life, habits, healing and a large part of my testimony. I come from a very violent background and because of it have a lot of bad habits. You can expect to see all the habits I currently keep as well as the habits I’m trying to change. I imagine you will see where I am struggling as well. While God did a huge work in my life it does not stop me from having huge struggles. I am waiting for complete and total healing.
My main focus will be on the habits I keep concerning God, foods, exercise, and stress. Here is a copy of my de-stress quick reference list Here. So basically weight management, healthy eating and stress management. I’m learning how to do these right and I’m not there yet but believe I will be very soon. I have also included some encouragement based on situations I am currently going through, that I have been through or that I have witnessed.
These following health issues: pre-diabetes, overweight, overeating, emotional eating, depression and easily stressed are what this blog is about. There will probably be some other stuff too. I went through a lot in my lifetime and would like to be able to help someone else with my experiences. Hopefully, to save them some of the drama I had to go through. I was one of those that had to learn by experience.
When I started my goal was to find a way to change jobs. However my goal was to change jobs once I was able to replace my income. So the losing the babysitter was a push I needed. In this process, I have learned that I have found a creative outlet and am learning something new that is challenging but fun. About 9 years ago I just wanted to write but couldn’t find what to write about. I even started a book.
It was a little of a surprise to me when I realized I was writing, which is what I wanted to do all along. We will see how it turns out. I even remembered telling my parents (as a young child) that I wanted to write. My step-dad had said that most artist never got paid until they died and that I needed to learn a real job. I tried that. Boy, was I miserable! So glad I tried something else.
I’ve always had a thing for collecting paper and pens. I am constantly making lists. So I went and got myself a daily/weekly planner to help me with planning and hopefully becoming more consistent. I look forward to filling it out. To top that off I even purchased a planner to help me with planning out my writing.
I’m enjoying most of this process. It is very challenging for me due to the technical aspects and some mental blocks. I know it will not always be fun but I am hoping I am up for that challenge too. I am seeking a way to change my bad habits and a way to be home with my babies. I see this as a way to fix the parts of me that I see as unhealthy. I’m hoping I make enough progress to inspire someone.
Something else about me is that I would love to own a farm with some chickens, sheep, and goats, and maybe some other little furries too. I know nothing about farm life except what I’ve heard from others. So one thing is I would still have to get up early. Even with hearing the negatives like that one and of eating your own animals I still think it would be really cool.
What I have started really is a learning process and as I learn I am bringing my readers along with me. I imagine that those who read along with me are some who either have or are currently going through some of what I’m writing about. And if you want to tag along but are not really going through it, that’s ok. too. I know I don’t mind the encouragement. So welcome to my blog. I hope it is a good experience for all.
