    So, Brad and I are seriously considering selling our house and moving out of town. He mentioned it again tonight and then went online and looked at some places. There are 3 in our price range ($250,000 or less). One is really nice with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, split level, nice kitchen. But, it's only on an acre so the neighbors are too close. Then there were two others we liked, but my problem with them is that they had wood interiors. One was log cabin-ish but is set on EIGHT ACRES of wooded land! OMG awesome... but has an HOA. The whole point in moving OUT of city limits is to avoid all those stupid rules. The third also has a wood interior, but is a bit above our price range. But, it's out in the middle of NO WHERE! No neighbors for miles! On a dead end gravel road. Another nice house, interesting floor plan, but FULL of knotty pine... I'm not in love with that.

    Looking at a time frame of a couple years before we'd move. Definitely want to get some stuff paid off so our house budget is better. New debt payoff plan (after factoring the new house payment) shows us being debt free (less mortgage and whatever car we buy) in 4 years. And that would be adjusted still b/c in that debt payoff plan is the 2 lots we bought that are not rolled into our current mortgage, so we could even NOT pay them off first and sell them with the house, making it 2 1/2 - 3 years to be debt free (less mortgage).

    Brad definitely doesn't want to build again, but I totally would again. His problem is that we've lived here for 5 years and haven't done any of the stuff we've wanted to do. I think if we were debt free with the exception of our mortgage, we could build and hire someone to do the stuff we want to do. That's what's held us back so far - no time or money to do anything.

    So, now we have new motivation. We definitely want to move onto an acreage, maybe start up a hobby farm with chickens and cows. Grass-fed, of course. Gotta have goals!

    I've been monitoring my body's response to certain things, as we all have been, and I've noticed something that is both disturbing and likely a Saving Grace. I get headaches when I eat sweets. They start out mild, but after a couple hours turn into migraine starters. I don't know if it's the sugar spike and then consequent drop that causes my headaches, or if it's the insulin spike that does it. This has been happening since I completed the 21 day sugar detox.

    But I have found it's only refined versions of sugar that cause my problems - honey and fruit are safe. Maple syrup is still questionable.

    So, I guess I've developed an intolerance to sugar, which is both good and bad. It's good in that I need to stop eating it anyway if I ever plan to reach my goals, but it's bad in that I have a weakness for sugary stuff.

    I just need to remember the headaches and maybe the sugar demons will go away for good.

    It's amazing how our brains can make things that happened in the past seem *better* than they are. I'm thinking in reference to how my weekend went, food-wise. I was sitting here contemplating doing a Whole30 in May to reset and recharge and asked myself why. My answer was "This weekend was really bad and I can feel sugar getting the best of me again". To that, my brain responded with "it wasn't THAT bad... just a bit of candy yesterday"... um, no, Brain, you are wrong...

    Friday: 2 handfuls of Starburst jelly beans, ice cream with Mt. Dew
    Saturday: Mt. Dew, PIZZA, 3 candy bars (2 almond joy, 1 whatchamacallit), cotton candy, cheese balls with ranch
    Sunday: Mt. Dew, 2 almond joy, coconut cream pie filling (pudding based), ice cream with that hard chocolate shell stuff (at least it has coconut oil in it... )

    2 weeks into April and I'm right back to eating entirely too much sugar.

    I am thinking May will house a Whole30. I will wait til May (or at least April 30) because of Makenna's birthday party. I do plan to partake in the cake I will be baking.

    yep, I think I'll do that. I think I'll do a W30 in May - just because. For that reason, I better stock up on butter and start cooking it down. lol

    Sad day to be a runner. 22 injuried and 2 dead by the hand of people placing bombs at the finish line. 2 exploded causing these injuries. A 3rd 'device' was destroyed by police for looking suspicious and rumors abound that a 4th device was found in a nearby hotel. I have a friend who ran this race today and is thankfully ok! Glad Nameless is not close enough to be in any harm as well.
