I know, I know, I’m still working on the damn LOTR challenge that I started a while ago, but this one is different. Last year, I did a month-long challenge where I took a selfie each day, and I’m doing it again this year, only this time, it starts today.

My self-esteem has been a little low lately; the weight I gained during nursing school isn’t going away as quickly as I want it to, and Karen the Kidney Stone isn’t making exercise any easier. Eating healthily has been more difficult for me, too, since starting work back in October because I’m tired a lot of the time and don’t really want to cook. It takes time to adjust to a new schedule, but I feel like it’s taking a little bit longer than I’d prefer.

So maybe just trying to see some beauty in who I am right now is the impetus I need to get back into that mode of treating myself well, which includes eating well, sleeping enough, and drinking enough water. You know, all those silly little things you have to do to feel halfway decent.

Like my last selfie challenge, I’ll be posting on Insta, so feel free to have a look-see over there. Now, I will be going to night shift after this following week, so I may be posting at weird times, but the goal is still the same: one selfie every 24 hours.

And here’s my first!
