Paleo Tuesday 10

Paleo Tuesday

  It’s Paleo Tuesday!!

First, lets get down to brass tax.  A change of plans for this series… This will be the last bi-weekly Paleo Tuesday post I`ll be doing.  I`m going to start doing the Paleo Tuesday posts monthly now, since much of it is repetition by now, seeing on how we`re almost 5 months into it.  The next Paleo Tuesday update will be on Tuesday, August 18th.

Paleo Tuesday

How much money we’ve spent on Groceries in July thus far: We are about on par with where we should be in terms of spending.  I’d say it’ll end up looking like June and May, approximately just less then $800.  I have to take stock of what I have left in the freezer at home.  When we’ve had any opportunity to head out to our local farmers market on Saturday mornings, we’ve done that.  I had wanted to go berry picking this month but we just haven’t had the time to get around to it, and also, I had heard that the yield wasn’t the greatest and they were also late this year.


Fresh Veggies fresh fruit
Meals:  Meals here are always the same, we haven’t gotten tired of them yet so why go and change something good?  I tend to be a creature of habit for the most part and we tend to thrive and see success if we stay on track with what we’re used to, what we like and what works for us.

Breakfast on the go

Last weekend (breakfast), when I was working, I took breakfasts with me so that I didn’t cave and buy empty calories.  When you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

Salads never get boring.  Yet.

Weight loss and how we feel: I haven’t asked Jeff to weigh himself lately, although I’m not sure you’d see much of a number loss, simply because he’s been biking a lot and he’s been gaining muscle I’m sure of it.  I’ll have to get him to weigh himself in the next month or so.

I seem to be staying steady around 140-145 lbs but I tell you, when I do eat cheats meals or grains or just shit food (i.e. Cool Ranch Doritos….. GUILTY!), I bloat like crazy and I just feel like garbage.  Is it worth cheating?  Sometimes.  Other times, I regret eating the food to be temporarily satisfied yet left feeling like shit for hours more.

Exercise:  Jeff ended up getting a new bike just over a week ago, because some of the spokes on his wheel snapped and it was going to cost half the price to fix the bike or spend a bit more and get an upgrade.  And what a difference he said it’s made.   In a week’s time, since buying the bike, he had put on over 100 km on that puppy.  ONE HUNDRED KILOMETERS, people!  Blown away!  He’s been biking usually once, sometimes twice a day and I’m really some new changes with him.  He looks great and says he feels great and he’s enjoying it a lot.

Myself, I’ve been off almost two weeks now house/dog sitting at my mom’s house while she’s been in Spain, as well as taking care of my two here.  I’ve been very lax on the gym, which in some respects has been good for me but I’ve missed going every day and doing my usual Monday to Friday classes and workouts.  I think I’ve been to the gym a handful of times since I’ve been here but I’ll be back to the grind tomorrow when I return to work.  Looking forward to the gym but not work.  LOL.

Pole dancing:  Pole class starts up again next Monday evening.  I’m excited but I’m sort of realizing why some warned me about my shoulders.  My left shoulder has been strained since maybe the day before the last class.  I shouldn’t have maybe gone to the last class, but I did.  I’m just grateful for the two weeks in between where I’ve been able to ease up on my shoulder.

So here’s a little treat.  It’s not much, but it’s much more I could do six weeks ago.  Filming yourself sucks, just saying.  lol.

That is all my friends.  🙂

Are you making any lifestyle changes?  Is there something different you’re doing or trying?  Anything you would recommend that I try?  I’m always down for trying something new….

Hope everyone has had/is having a great Tuesday!!!

    Love this whole post. Yeah Jeff, that is so cool, good on him. But my favorite part is the video! I love it. So awesome! First off, thanks! Second-you are so strong! Third-I can see why your arm is sore. Xoxo

  • I couldn’t watch the video (connection issues) but I’m sure you’re awesome on that pole :).

  • Aw dang, well you’re not missing too much, believe you me. LOL

  • Its incredible the amount of upper body strength you need to hoist yourself up that pole. A hell of a workout is what it is.
    And Jeff, he’s doing so amazing. I’m so proud of him!
    Love ya girl xo

    The bloat is real 🙁 We’ve had a ton of BS going on lately so have been eating like BS I’s sad to say. Tonight was all fresh veggies from Grandpa’s garden though, I’m feeling better already! 🙂

  • I hate that bloated feeling, it’s so uncomfortable. Sounds like you’re back on track 🙂

  • I’m not very familiar with paleo eating, but the food looks delicious. I try not to eat too many processed foods anyway and I’m hoping to use my crockpot more once the school year starts next week. I am a new follower on pinterest from your #letsbefriends hop! I blog here:

  • Really great to meet you Heather and thanks for the follow and I wish you luck for the draw! 🙂

    Paleo is such Fresh, nutrient dense quality food but I’ll admit it’s a TON of prepping. And if you don’t prep, you’re likely to make crappy choices if you’re hungry and nothing prepped on hand. Takes some getting used to but we feel so great!!

    I’ll be sure to check your blog out! ;)xo

  • I love that it’s nutrient dense! I mean that’s how we should be eating anyway right? I don’t mi d the prep work though. Or portioned out a lot of my kids snack so they can easily grab them throughout the week and that takes some prep. I figure if you have a prep day you can save time during the week?

  • It’s precisely how we were meant to eat before mass production, factory farming, evolution and GRAINS were discovered.
    The prep work isn’t too terrible but if you ask me right this second, I’m getting sick of it. That’s the only part. Lol oh well but prepping is the key to success, for paleo, with kids, whatever! 🙂
