Dear Me 2016

Dear Me,

Well here we meet again, strangers in the night until that fateful day you open this to read about all your hopes and dreams put down on "paper."  I hope to not disappoint.

2015 held a lot of promise at the beginning of the year.  You were geared up and ready to take on the world, or your own body I suppose.  But day after day, the struggles from 2014 kept sneaking in and taking back over.

A bajillion doctors later, you've gotten 2 diagnoses and 2 surgeries were done. By the time you're reading this, you should be just blowing it out of the water again.  You'll be 8 months post op on your hip and you know what that means?  That means if you haven't gone out for a walk today, you need to get your tush off the chair it's residing in and get out there because you were born to move.  The itch and passion of just simply getting out there and walking has never left you.  And I can only hope for the healing to go fast and successful so that you can enjoy the weather again.  Enjoy the time alone.

Your hand will probably still be a hot mess by the time this reaches you on the first of January.  It's a slower recovery than your hip.  Just remember that you're doing all you can to work on that movement and flexibility.

As far as eating habits go, I challenge you to keep up the healthy habits that have found their way into your kitchen throughout 2015.  Keep up with the veggies, and the healthy recipes, and the occasional cheat meal because let's be honest... I know you love the occasional homestyle, full of calories, meal. :)

I truly hope that your head is still held up high and you're proud of how far you've come.  It's not about the weight in 2015.  It's about getting better.

So with that, I bid you a farewell until the fateful day we meet again and I hope you know how much I admire you for the strength shown in 2015.
