Weight Check + Ready for Something New

Hello, everyone! How has your month been? February is one of the hardest months for me personally. It's nearing the end of winter but, not quite the end. I am anxiously awaiting the newness of Spring while also trying not to miss the beauty of the current moment. 

I am ready to get outside and reconnect with nature. I am ready to start the garden that has been on my heart and mind since last summer. I am ready to come out of hibernation.

If you are caught up on the blog then you know I have been intentionally hibernating in a sort of way this winter. As I wrote in my blog post "Striving in January" you'll know that I haven't felt like striving toward any goals this winter. Instead, I have felt the need to reconnect with the season by slowing down.

Now, as March is only a week away, I feel a sort of excitement for what's to come! I don't know if I'd consider myself fully out of hibernation quite yet. It's been rather comfy here. However, I am starting to stretch my arms and dust myself off a bit. I am working my way out slowly; as slowly as the winter changes to Spring.

Something happened with my health in the past week that had me running to food as medicine again. I started being more intentional about eating leafy greens and taking my vitamins. I even checked the scale this morning and I'm happy to see that my little hibernation this winter did not cause much trouble there. During my time in hibernation, I was hovering between 230-235. Today, I weighed in at 229. I am excited for where I might be in a month from now if I keep treating food like medicine, 80% of the time.

At this point in my life, the number on the scale holds less weight compared to how I'm feeling. And right now, I am feeling good and ready to welcome something new.
