November Recap & Chit Chat

Hello & happy Friday!

My oh my what a month it’s been. November is probably my 2nd favorite month of the year because the weather is finally cool, the leaves are stunning, and I get to stuff my face with delicious food.

A lot has happened this month, hence the reasoning behind why I haven’t been posting a lot on social media or the blog.

  • If you’ve read my October recap, you’ll know that around mid-October I was diagnosed with Mono for the second time. And let me tell you, it wiped me out. Don’t get me wrong, I was loving life because I got to sleep all the time and eat all these carby foods, but it was annoying feeling exhausted just walking to class. On a more positive note, I’m feeling a lot better now, and things are looking up!
  • I’m back in the gym!!!!! Y’all I am stoked about this. I’m going to be starting a whole new series on the blog about getting back in the gym, losing motivation, and doing the whole fitness thing in an approachable way. I’m excited to bring y’all along on this journey, and hopefully, it’ll help keep you motivated if you’re a beginner or if you’re wanting to start on your own fitness journey.
  • Brad (that’s my boyfriend. I figure y’all should officially know his name 🙂 ) and I got into a pretty bad car accident at the beginning of the month. Thank goodness both of us are okay and the other person involved is alive. The whole accident has left me a little mentally mixed up, but the whole situation could’ve been a lot worse. All in all, it brought Brad and I closer together, and we’re still alive. That’s all I could ask for.
  • Speaking of Brad, he joined me this year at my family’s Thanksgiving. They didn’t kill him, my brother seems to like him, and it was wonderful to spend my favorite holiday with him.
  • I’m going to end this little recap here on a very positive note. Y’all probably know that I’ve been struggling with my anxiety this semester. I never knew that how I’ve felt my entire life isn’t “normal,” and there was a solution to not feeling like the world was going to fall apart at any given moment. Finally, I found a counselor who would listen to me and wanted to help me. I’ve gotten my anxiety under control thanks to some medication, and y’all I am a whole new person. Thank you to everyone who supported me over the past few months. Y’all mean the world to me.

    So glad you are feeling better and looking forward to your daily updates on your gym routine you seriously motivate me to go to the gym and actually workout. Sounds like you had a pretty eventful month but I am glad everything is okay, I know car accidents can leave a big impact on you. I have been through one myself and it’s scary and makes you really rethink life a little. I also don’t know how many times I can say thanks but I am so glad you put together the Blogger Secret Santa, I am really looking forward to it and so excited. I love doing these things and being apart of a great online community of bloggers. I know it takes a lot of time to set all these things up and I am so thankful. Can’t wait to see everyone’s Secret Santa’s post on Dec 25.
