Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Today is a bittersweet day because I just successfully completed my first year of college. It has been two wonderful semesters full of fabulous people, sleepless nights, and a lot of late-night coffee + snack runs–but I am so thankful and giddy to have freshman year over with *wink* 

I do not often get super personal on the blog–but don’t take it personal, y’all! My mom tells me all the time that I need to share more of myself with the world, but I have always been a little shy about my true self because my true self is a little bit “weird” *wink* but I feel that college is really helping me to open up more and blossom bigger and better. Gah…I wish my high school classes would have had “majors” where I got to go to class with people who were just as passionate about a subject as I was *wink*

Looking back on my freshman year, I am happy to say that I did not gain the “Freshman 15”. I honestly feared gaining those dreadful pounds because I am a “stress eater” and everyone from the neighbor to the stranger told me I would *wink* BUT I have actually lost ten pounds since the beginning of my first semester. *Fist in air* Thanks, Planet Fitness! 

Note: I lost weight in my goal to eat cleaner and healthier + exercise for stress relief and training for my first 5K. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease shortly before starting college, and I was determined to get healthier, so that I would physically feel better + feel better about myself when looking in the mirror. So far, the lifestyle changes are paying off :)

Speaking of “looking back”….let’s take a look back at what the VIP was doing this time last year…and the year before that *wink* Oh, goodness! How things change over time *wink*
