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.

Just stopping by to say hi and check in with how it's going. I am up and down with motivation. My main goal this month is to track all my food and so far I have done it every day (not always in calorie range, though). Now to get into my exercise routine! Are you still doing Zumba? It seems to be a favorite of many people! Have a blessed day!
