Last year, I was so tired of my restrictive habits. I knew I couldn't do it anymore. I was so envious of people who could be "normal" around food and who could brush off any guilt if they missed a workout. I decided I was going to get better.
This year, my goal is to discover my new identity (which no longer revolves around my restrictions), to truly accept myself, and to love and appreciate my body at whatever size.
Since I have been gone for a while, and before I jet set off to the West coast, here are some photos of what I've been up to.
Homemade tapas - Such a fun way to spice up a weeknight dinner
Holiday party dancing!
Some healthy meals thrown in of course - this is a quinoa bowl with lots of veggies and a chopped up chicken burger
Zoolights! The only time I enjoy the zoo is during Zoolights with a Starbucks Peppermint Mocha in hand
One of the highlights was our Thanksgiving dinner accompanied by Episodes 1-12 of R. Kelly's trapped in the closet. There is nothing like watching a brilliant piece of art alongside the friends you love.
I hope you are enjoying the holidays as much as I am. I hope that you are finding ways to relax, letting yourself rest, and not worrying about the food. Now is the time to focus on everything we are grateful for.
