In more ways than one — my business, the gym, and eating well!!!
Sometimes eating according to our goals is just so-so difficult. Take last night’s turkey-bacon-guac burgers for example!
Okay, maybe the sweet potato fries were partly according to my be-lazy-this-weekend goal, but they’re pretty close.
Practically like a deconstructed Larabar!! I love dried unsweetened cherries from the bulk bins at Sprouts. They’re one of the few dried fruits without sugar or oils added.
Went into the rec center today for a little cardio fix. I saw a lot of people out running in the snow. Brrrrrr… I did a 5k ok the treadmill, a few minutes on the rower, and a few minutes trying out some of the new cardio machines they bought at the end of the year. The place was PACKED today. More people than I’ve ever seen. Partly because of the weather and partly because of January, I’m sure!
Spicy chili was good for a cold day. We stocked up on a lot of fresh fruits & vegetables after church today. Hopefully I won’t have to leave my house all week. Just kidding. It’s supposed to warm up. It’s Colorado after all.
Kevin was super handy all week, taking down Christmas stuff, and rearranging stuff on all my walls. This isn’t really how I want things, but I like to have something up. What’s the 17? I started a countdown to the recital last year… I guess that’s how far I got with it! :) The running shoes print I got as a gift for Kevin before we were married!! It says “You Make My Heart Race.” More on his handiwork on my upcoming January Cure post!
And some grass fed steak, sweet potatoes, and salad with Tessemae’s Southwest Ranch for dinner.
So here’s an interesting post on quitting Paleo (by a paleo cookbook author).
My excuse to have a few lattes? Especially with my Christmas gift cards?
I’ve been experimenting ever since our super strict paleo challenge didn’t do a whole lot for me (especially in regards to workout energy!!!). The reason Kevin and I try for mostly paleo most of the time is because for US, that mainly means cutting out cookies, candy, Diet Coke, and chips. Haha. For the most part, we don’t really miss grains. Unless they’re in the form of apple crisp. Or cheetos? Sooo…. I always say I miss dairy the most… so I’ve been eating it some. It bothers Kevin a little bit, but not me. I grew up eating ice cream every day (seriously). So I’m kind of a paleo believer. Kind of not. I do love fat now though… yum… fat…. still need to eat more vegetables. And I go back and forth on all the meat consumption. I’m not eating as much now as I did on the challenge (which made me a little sick). But honestly, eating paleo has taught us to eat better quality meat, and I’m thankful for that!!! (Except when I go to remote areas in Minnesota, and It’s super hard to find….) I guess that’s why we call it a spectrum. :)
Princess Pippa says good night. I’m back to work tomorrow. Kevin has zero sympathy for me since I work from home and have a job I love. But still!! Actually, realistically, I did a ton of work today. Sent out a million emails, schedules, bills, and edited my website. There’s a reason I don’t charge for piano lessons by the hour…
What are you working on?
P.S. Great pic of the Boykin coming soon….
