Updates and coming soon

So, there’s quite a bit going on right now in life. First, hubby and I are on day 4 of a whole 30 and it’s going really well. It’s a lot easier this time around. There a few things I enjoyed from my first whole 30 (like eggs for breakfast) that I had continued since the first time and I don’t have to think so much about the choices. Days 1 and 2 were wicked hard since we overdid it in NYC last weekend in terms of sugar, carbs, and caffeine (yay major headache); but after that it’s been pretty easy. The main reason I’m doing this is that despite only gaining a couple of lbs recently, I had started to see “fat Rachael” again when I looked in the mirror. After 1 day of whole 30 I started to see the real me again. I may enjoy those other foods more, but I don’t enjoy the way I feel about myself when I’m eating them.

In other news, we bought a house two days ago and have started a complete remodel of the inside. This thing hadn’t been updated since 1977 and the previous owners were smokers. I will start posting pictures as soon as we make more progress, though they would be more effective if they were scratch and sniff so you could smell the difference as well!
