Thoughts of a 20-something

Update

Leave a comment

It’s been awhile. That’s my fault. I allowed life to get me busy and gluten to take over most of my meals. I’m going to try and keep up with this a bit more, although a lot has changed so here’s an update!

I’m engaged! T proposed back in August and we are getting married in October 2014. It’s coming along quickly and I’m so excited for it.

I’m also a full time graduate student. This is online and time consuming, but I should be done December 2014. Woo!

Also, we got a cat ad are moving into a house in a month. So we are super super busy. But that’s okay!

I’ve been having various nasty stomach issues over the past several years. I’ve decided to try and find out why and figure out what I can do about it. I’m starting a very strict Paleo-inspired diet called Whole 30. Today is my first day, and I’d like to use this site to share my experiences and thoughts and recipes that I make/find.

So far, it’s been good. I know that it’s only day one and therefore probably the easiest day, but it’s going well! for breakfast I had egg cups (eggs, kale, onions and peppers) and an orange. For lunch, I had a salad with baked chicken and balsamic vinegar and olive oil (loaded with veggies and so very good!)

currently, zucchini soup is on the stove for lunch tomorrow,and up for dinner tonight is a chili.

I haven’t taken any photos yet but I definitely will and keep this updated as much as possible. I have found a new favorite snack: blueberries and almonds. They go sooo well together!
