What about the rest?

Hey, guess what. Normal life keeps happening too, even when you’re in the middle of a remodel! So what else is going on?

Well… I have a cold. Out of the blue, it just hit me last night. I went to dinner with my mom and felt fine. But on the way home, I started sneezing nonstop. By the time I got home, my throat was feeling itchy and my nose was running. By the time I went to bed, I was a leaky faucet (haha, can you tell what’s on my mind? Even my metaphors are bathroom related!).

All I have to say about this inconvenience is that Nyquil and Sudafed are miracle drugs.

And all my gym visits and mindful eating are paying off. I’m starting to feel better in my body and (!!!) better in my clothes. Feeling better about myself  is not only important for me, personally, it also means a lot for my relationship with Kyle. I think it was unfair to him to let myself get to a place where I was uncomfortable and unhappy with myself. Because it is true that you have to be happy with yourself in order to be the best partner you can be. So I am thrilled to be coming out of that negative space. I think Kyle sees a difference in my energy and my attitude that makes me more pleasant to be around, and honestly, being better for him is among the best motivation I’ve been able to find!
