This past week I was lucky enough to hear the Michael Rutherford give a nutrition presentation. Nothing like a coach to give it to you straight. It was great. I am so thankful that my husband's employer supports paleo living and provided the opportunity for so many people to hear life changing information. That may sound trite, but I mean it!
I shopped at Hy-Vee, Costco, and Aldi for this week.
eggs w/ fruit or salsa (most days!)
maybe use this muffin recipe for some homemade pumpkin donuts (on our day off)
coffee, raw milk
best chicken ever
salami & goat cheese
celery & almond butter
apples, bananas, clementines, strawberries, pineapple
Sunday - crispy carnitas
Monday - dinner w/ friends, taking homemade BBQ meatballs (the sauce is not paleo, but the balls are)
Tuesday - chicken marsala skillet, roasted broccoli
Wednesday - zucchini spaghetti with meat sauce* (my 3 year old's favorite meal)
Thursday - beanless chili (maybe try this chocolate chili?)
Friday - hamburgers, sweet potato fries
Saturday - shawarma chicken salad
*So, not a lot of links this week. I pretty much wing it on these dinners. I do want to share my favorite EASY meaty tomato sauce with you, though... I plan to be back early in the week with that.
And some randomness to start off your week:
Clearance jewelry at Target makes me happy. I rarely shop for myself, so $4 earrings are special. See, I even have to legitimize it with that disclaimer...
And while I do not think fame in and of itself is something to aspire to, I still like this song: Hall of Fame. Kinda similar to The Fighter which I've liked for awhile, too. And Carry On. And Try. (I like Pink. Watch at your own risk). Notice a theme? Suck it up, keep going, keep your chin up - which is what I need to hear a lot :) Not because my life is hard, but just because. What about you?
Progress Report: I did my workouts 4 days last week. They were short. As in 20, 12, 15, and 30 minutes. But I did something!
Homework time now.
Wishing you a great start to your week!
