One Grateful Girl trying to start again

After losing 30 pounds and becoming a zumba fanatic I then started the toughest year I've had in a long time. My chronic migraines became an almost daily occurrence and I reinjured my back(herniated disc). For most of 2014 I was unable to exercise and unfortunately turned to food for comfort. Thankfully I was able to maintain my weight.

After losing 30 pounds and becoming a zumba fanatic I then started the toughest year I've had in a long time. My chronic migraines became an almost daily occurrence and I reinjured my back(herniated disc). For most of 2014 I was unable to exercise and unfortunately turned to food for comfort. Thankfully I was able to maintain my weight.

2015 is a new year and I am determined to make a new start. I have to learn to accept my life as it is and learn to fit in exercise in new ways. I am determined to find a way to workout with my new limitations and I will also focus on eating healthier. I will also learn to find new ways to deal with stress to replace turning to food.
