Moving forward...

Last year was a challenge.  I'm not gonna lie, I know that it is February, but it has taken me this long to resolve my feelings for last year.

Don't get me wrong, there were some beautiful moments last year.  For spring break we went to Kennedy Space Center and then to Universal Studios.  We hadn't been to either in years.  We need another trip to Kennedy soon as we didn't get to see everything we wanted to.  As far as Universal, we loved the Harry Potter areas.  Worth the admission right there. In October we traveled across the pond to visit London, UK.  Amazing! I loved it there and wish we had gone for a more extended trip. 

I genuinely have tons to be thankful for, and I remind myself often of that.  That is why this year, 2019, I really need to get a handle of my health.  That includes weight, body, mind, spirit, and weight.  Yes, I know I said weight twice, but it is probably the thing that I need the most help with. 

One of the things I'm doing is putting fewer chemicals on me that can harm my new being.  So, the first thing I'm tackling is no more color on my hair.  After much research, it is better for my health to not to color my hair and risk any damage to my renal system.  The picture shows my 10 weeks with no additional coloring.  Mavity, my hairdresser/friend, cut my hair shorter than before to help cut off a lot of the blonde so the process of transitioning to my natural color will be easier.  I love the cut, even my grey looks kind of cool.

Weight, well, yeah...that part of the process isn't going as well. My previous losses were a symptom, and now that I'm back on the mend, the weight has returned.  What the heck, why couldn't it just stayed away! I have started us on Freshly, a weekly food delivery that has prepackaged gluten-free meals, to help us not call GrubHub, DoorDash, or any other food delivery services that we have abused the past few months.  Not only will Freshly be better for our waistlines but our wallets as well.

There you have renewed promise to myself to be a better version of myself.  Being Jeanne can be a lot of work, but I'm definitely worth it!

Uninstalled some apps to check his sugars, sharing location, and sharing maps. I am obsessing over those things and that isn't healthy. ...
