It's crazy to think that I've been going through this process now for two years. 2012 was a great year, I was happy, lost a ton of weight, life was good. 2013 wasn't as great, in fact, 2013 pretty much sucked and took a crazy emotional toll on me. Not worth going into details, but I was fighting against a vicious cycle (and losing) basically all year. I'm not a stress eater per se, but I do experience an inordinate amount of fatigue which leads to: less working out, less cooking, less packed lunches, and more time sitting on a couch (oh, my darling DVR, you didn't help).
2014 will be better (because if it's not, I'm hibernating through 2015). But really, it will be better. I try to avoid making new year's resolutions about weight loss, but every year, I resolve to be healthier. To me that includes a lot of things, weight loss of course, but also, better stress management, being more active, flossing more... etc.
I've said it before, but I need to be better about keeping myself accountable. I am so lucky to have such a great support system, but I have to be in charge of myself. So be prepared for more blog posts friends, and not just recipes like I had gotten in the habit of. But I'll definitely still share recipes! I have a couple stored up, waiting for me to have time to type them out.
Happy 2014! I wish everyone health and happiness this year, and always!
