The old saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers.” I don’t know where you are, but it has been raining like crazy! Luckily, it is warm rain as opposed to cold rain: The break in temperature has definitely encouraged me to co-wash before leaving the house more. I’m sure my Cherrelle is happy. Anywho, I wanted to chat with you all about my April hair and beauty goals and I will tell you all how I did with my March goals at the end.
April Hair and Beauty Goals
Vitamins & Meds – I have been better with taking everything but still not as consistent as I need to be for results. I have a pill container with each day of the week and I still manage to miss a pill somewhere. SMH at myself. It’s so sad. I know.
Smooth Skin – I have noticed in the last year or so my skin texture has changed. I have tried more masks and using my Olay skin cleanser. One of my doctors laughed at me and told me to “welcome to getting older.” Forget that! You know my feelings about growing old gracefully. Not happening! I am going to try a stronger skin peel and hope for the best. I have to find the best peel for sensitive skin.
Weight Loss – Losing weight has been my battle for the last couple of years. This is the most weight I ever carried in my life, including being pregnant. I’ve had a number of health challenges that have made losing weight difficult. At this point, I am going to have to leave steroids alone. I was told my decision would be potentially life-threatening due to what I need them for, but I feel being overweight is life-threatening. I need my doctor to have several seats. My goal is to lose at least 10 lbs this month.
Hair Moisture – I am working on correcting the dryness I experienced when I was not feeling well. I have been steaming more, baggying, and I pulled out some of my older moisturizers. I had a combo of moisturizers I used a couple of years ago when I accidentally caused moisture overload. Oops…hopefully, the same products can bring my hair back. I plan to have properly moisturized hair by the end of this month.
That is all of my goals for this month. Now, let’s briefly recap last month’s goals.
March Hair and Beauty Goal Recap
Continue GA and Scalp Massages (Completed)
Buns & Wiggin It (Completed) I wore more buns. I didn’t break out the wigs yet.
Skin Peel (Completed) Juice Beauty Sensitive Skin Peel review coming on Friday
Exercise (Completed) I got back out on the pavement. …not how I would like but it beats the sofa.
It’s the first month in a long time that I managed to complete everything for the month. I am so proud of myself.
