Seattle for Christmas + Hello 2018

Howdy, howdy, and Happy New Year’s Day! I’m back from Seattle, and I had a fabulous time!

Here are some pics … we had a white Christmas, as you can clearly see!

Now onto my writing for today – HELLO 2018, GOODBYE 2017!

I’ve grown so much in 2017. I’m officially one year without drinking, I’m getting so much better at recognizing and managing my eating disordered behaviors, and I’m a healthier, happier person. Yes, I relapsed this past year for a few months, but I’m back to a healthy weight now, and I’m just taking it one day at a time – that’s all we can really do, after all!

So that’s my motto for this year: take it one day at a time. I plan to continue working out and eating well into 2018, and I’ll see where that takes me! I hope to enjoy cooking a bit more this year and to try new recipes. I love me some veggies, as y’all know, but I need to branch out with proteins.

I’m still battling my brain which often tells me I’m too fat, not thin enough, but I’m learning that I *am fine* just the way I am. I’ll never be a size 0, and that’s perfectly fine, and I’m not meant to weigh 110 lbs, and that’s perfectly fine too! I’m a tall girl who needs to be more muscular and fit, not thinner. Thin is no longer my goal, despite what my brain tells me sometimes. FIT is my goal for 2018, fit and healthy, not thin and skeletal. Fit, healthy, and ultimately HAPPY.

Here’s to a Happy 2018, y’all!
