Day One Hundred Seventy-Three…

It was rainy all day today, but I felt pretty sunny inside. You see, I had a NSV I fit into that pair of jeans that didn’t fit a couple of weeks ago…

Hello, size 8 jeans the last time we were together was when I was in my mid 30’s. I missed you.

I’m not saying that my journey is only about fitting into my jeans. It is just something that makes me happy, so it is worth celebrating. Yay! My jeans fit! Another thing to celebrate is that every recipe I’ve made over this winter break has turned out awesome. I’ve cooked all of my recipes that I shared on Day One Hundred Sixty-Eight plus I made Bird Balls, and Spice Cake Cupcakes and more:

All of this food was amazing! I truly enjoyed every bite. I think it’s crazy but I like food more now than I did when I wasn’t so mindful of my choices. If you made something great, please share with me. I’m always looking to try something new.

Whether it’s cooking a good meal, buying a special bottle of shampoo, donating a box of dog food to our local shelter, or having an awesome spin class there are so many reasons to be grateful.

Taking time to appreciate the things that make me happy is time well spent. I hope you get a chance to reflect on your week and consider everything you did that brought you happiness.
