Current Goal // Eat Paleo


Last week I decided on a whim to start eating Paleo. I have given myself the goal of two weeks of eating paleo with on 1 cheat day a week. The cheat day is a way of rewarding myself for keeping my goal all week.

My main reason for going paleo was to lose a few little pounds before my Birthday Weekend in Vegas. But, as I began to think about it going paleo could be really good for my body and my crohns disease.  I know my doctor and others with the disease have mentioned it to me before, but I have always just looked it over.

So far the diet has been a lot easier than I thought it would be. I already feel must better. My energy level has gone up and my appetite is already starting to curb itself. I don’t want to munch so much.  The hardest part is the cravings for things, and/or when you pick up something you think is paleo ok and then read the label to find it has like one thing that’s not paleo.

What’s really cool is all the awesome recipes out there. Like Palo Chocolate Chip Cookies and Paleo Blueberry Muffins… Um hello can you say… YUM! Both of those recipes have been a life saver for my sweet tooth.

Here are a few pictures of the meals I have had thus far:

August 15th: Birthday Galore!!!


Today is a day for Birthdays in my family. Today is my Dad, my sister and my nanny’s birthday.  I don’t have a picture of me and my nanny to post, but the above picture is of me, my dad, my sister and of course our cute little boxer. We took this picture when I was home visiting for Christmas 2011.

Today my Dad will turn 46 years old and my sister will be 17. I can not believe she is already 17 years old and that my dad is actually so young. Well anyways here’s a huge birthday shout out to some of the most important people in my life.

Happy Birthday! I love you!
