When that muffin top became a full-blown, busted can of biscuits! šŸ˜€

Yep, just after writing a post a little disappointed in all the fad diets people tend to try at the beginning of the New Year, I’m going to come out and say that wanting to “get healthy” or “start over” again, is totally normal šŸ™‚ .

There’s something beautiful about a new year.Ā  Maybe it’s the excitement of the fresh days of an early beginning, or the unknown of the future, and the promises that are to come.Ā  I truly do get a little pumped up each time, and not so much in a resolution-making kind of way, but rather a general excitement for the new-beginning the year will bring.Ā  I also enjoy looking back on the past year when it’s closing, and finding beauty in it to treasure moving forward.

So with all that said, I do believe it’s totally normal for people to want to look ahead to new and better things, to make promises to themselves about their fitness or whatnot.Ā  I think it’d be a little strange if a person wasn’t motivated by the optimism a new year can bring… but then again, I am forever an optimist. šŸ™‚

But yes, I am definitely relating to the picture above šŸ˜‰Ā  My muffin top from Thanksgiving has bloomed into what I would say a busted can of biscuits, as it should be after the holidays ā¤Ā  And now it’s my annual time to reset everything and bring a much welcomed balance back to our enjoyment of eating healthy.

The New Year’s “Bounce-Back,” is totally normal.Ā  You’d have to eat ZERO pies or dressing or sweet potato casserole (and live a miserable life) to not feel the need to “bounce-back!” šŸ˜€
