My EMS Life...

Saturday night I worked on the ambulance for the first time since I quit last May. It was bizarre... In some ways I felt like it had been years since I did this, but then it also felt like I never left. I'll be honest, I didn't know how I would feel about going back to the place I spent the last 16 years, after I said I would never go back. Even though it's only been 8 months, I've changed a lot since I left that career. I've realized some things about myself because I got really honest with myself. Working in a job like EMS is really like working on a different planet or something. lol... Here's what I mean... Working EMS you see and hear everything... and when I say everything, I mean EVER

My transformation

I thought I'd do a little #throwbackthursday action to my personal transformation a few years ago. Although I have never been extremely overweight, I have had periods of my life where I wasn't healthy at all. I had my daughter in 2007. Prior to her I had always worked out. I didn't really understand nutrition that much, so my diet left something to be desired, but I was young with a healthy metabolism, so it didn't affect my weight too much. Since that time I earned my Bachelors in Dietetics, so now I do have an understanding of nutrition... So fast forward to these pics. During my pregnancy I quit working out, and I gained 37 pounds. Not too bad, since the recommended weight gain is 25-35 l

Create Your Masterpiece - Your Body, Your Health, Your Life

I've been decorating my new apartment the past few weeks. Tonight I painted 3 pictures for a wall that just needed something on it, but I haven't been able to find exactly what I wanted in stores because it's an odd-shaped wall with a cutout looking into my kitchen. So, since I couldn't find it, I made it. Now let me preface this by saying - I AM NOT AN ARTIST. I have painted exactly 4 paintings in my life now. All of them were because I could picture what I wanted in my mind, but either I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for, or I was too poor to afford it...This was a combo of the two. ;) Now, I will repeat I AM NOT AN ARTIST. Ain't nobody gonna be buyin' a Stacie Mountain original

2014 - The Year of Change

At the end of each year I like to take some time and reflect on my life. It helps me really identify where I succeed and where I struggle, which helps me decide where I want to go... This was the year of change for me. More so than any other year I can remember. This was the year that I opened my heart and trusted again, fell in love, quit my job, moved, had my heart broken, had a spiritual awakening, let go of self doubt, picked up the broken pieces of my heart/myself/my life, found new inner strength that I didn't know I had, faced personal fears, forgave, and moved forward. It's amazing to me that no matter what life throws at me, somehow I manage to work through it, and I always come out
