Well, it's been a weird couple of weeks. I alluded to some family drama about a week or so ago, and since then I actually went on a mini-vacation with them. It was just me, my sister, and my mom and dad.
It was a great trip.
My sister and brothers and I want to have a big old sit down talk with our parents, but the vacation made me feel a little more at ease about airing out all of our issues. So that's good.
Other updates - I've been keeping up with the Couch to 5K plan and that's been going really well! I feel great and I'm loving the challenge.
I'm not tracking my food as of late. I'm trying to rely on what I know (and have known for years now) about eating right and making good decisions. I HAVE IT IN ME TO EAT RIGHT. I'm not going to track food for the rest of my life -- it makes me just a little crazy. I do, however, need some structure and guidelines, so I'm working on typing up a list of those.
I went completely off sugar for about a year -- but recently I've been indulging occasionally. And that's awesome -- I'm proud of myself for being able to enjoy dessert OCCASIONALLY, and knowing that it doesn't have to turn into a binge.
These past few months have involved a LOT of soul searching for me - I'm slowly figuring out what it means to be Rachel and uncovering that awesomeness. Some of it is frustrating...but it's all worth it.
