When I lost a lot of weight before I had a lot of fear foods. So I wouldn't eat things like popcorn at the movies. Or even a single piece of candy. Or hot dogs. Because I was afraid it'd derail everything. I also used to workout a lot but for unhealthy reasons. So this time around it's a completely different mindset. It's a much slower journey now but it's worth it to establish that healthy relationship with food and exercise. So I'd almost say that it's a healthier lifestyle now than it was before, simply from a mental health aspect.
So one perk of living in KC is that I'm about a 2 hour drive from Marceline, MO which as we all know served as the inspiration for Main Street USA and Disney identified heavily as his "childhood home". I've never been to Marceline. I had the opportunity once but my ex wouldn't make a pit stop during our road trip. SO I have a day trip planned with a co-worker in May to go up to Marceline, visit the museum and maybe even the spot for the dreaming tree. I'm SO excited to go! I've wanted to for so long. So it's finally happening.
