Determined AF

Drunk Me & Sober Me Are Not on Speaking Terms

Since deciding to give up alcohol for Lent I have been extremely surprised at how easy it is for me to stick to it! I didn’t let the lack of alcohol keep me away from living my life. Every Friday night my boyfriend and I still went to dinner at Cooper’s Hawk Restaurant and Winery.…

I’m Body Positive but Still Focused on Losing Weight

Deciding to lose weight wasn’t something I woke up and decided I was going to do one day. It took a lot of mental strength and willpower. A lot of things in my life weren’t how I imagined them to be at the time and I decided enough was enough. I had to be honest…
