January 28th, 2014.
That was the date of my last blog.
I just re-read what I wrote and the thoughts and feelings of that time came flooding back. I felt a little bad for her and her mental place. The struggle that was going on.
That girl has changed. Yes, again. She has grown. She has found love.
For herself ❤
I am probably just a bit bigger than I was then. I have not truly exercised for the last year. That is ok. I needed the time. There have been a few starts along the past year but these were met with my body saying, no, telling me in no uncertain terms NO! Not yet. Gentle. We are recovering here. Time is an illusion you need not worry about. There were times when a workout would consist of one single deadlift. That too was ok. I am not forcing it. Recovery is happening. All is well.
I have allowed myself to eat as I wished. I have over-eaten and I have under-eaten. A lot lately I have found myself yearning for more vegetables, less sweets and barely any ice cream. I now routinely leave food on my plate. I was raised to eat everything served to me so this is new…..and may I say, just a little exciting?! I still am surprised when I push my plate away with food on it. I am now at a place where when I feel fullness coming on, it has been enough. I like it!
So, to summarize, I am moving my body in ways that feel right without pushing it and am eating enough and not too much. I like where this is leading!
I also left you last time with a tease of a creative endeavour. It was finished last November! It is not perfection but it is my work and deserves to me owned ❤

I would love to know your thoughts on it 🙂
I also showed you some other work I was doing. Well…………..that escalated fast! I now have an Etsy shop ( http://www.etsy.com/shop/RexsTreasureTrove ) and a Facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/RexsTreasureTrove )
It is like having a brand new life. I feel like I am closer to who I really am. I don’t feel like an imposter in my own body, heart and mind ❤
Here are a couple items that I have done
