New Year, New Me?

I finally got up the courage to step on the scale this morning, and well, I wasn't as disappointed as I could have been.  It was still disappointing to see how much weight I allowed myself to gain back last year, but it's on me, and I'll fix it. 

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!
