Alright, suckas. I keep getting requests to start a blog and it's all pretty daunting when I think about how MUCH goes down in my life and how I'm supposed to get it all "on paper". Jesus. Maybe if I just start with today, then at least I can tell everyone to suck it for a little while. :D
Let's get some
stuff out of the way first so that you can keep reading or tell me where
to shove my blog...I'm 34, I'm a veteran, I'm a Mom, a Buddhist, and I
have a girlfriend. My resume is ridiculous, but I'm a nurse now and
forever, but I didn't become a nurse until 2010. If you read my blog
long enough, you'll eventually realize that I'm a jack-of-all-trades,
I cook a LOT
(Paleo), Crossfit...not enough, support my GF as she goes to school, pay
the bills, watch a lot of little girls play hockey, and generally keep
our little household afloat while trying to save for vacation too. We
have a cat named Shakira that looks like she's wearing oven mitts and
has a crazy crooked tail, and a snail named Sunshine. R.I.P. Friendship
the Beta fish...is that what you call them...or just beta?
Whatever...Friendship and Sunshine are names that happen when you let
your Widget name your pets.
mention...I used to weigh almost 300 pounds. Yikes, yeah, I know. I'm
roughly 180 right now. As you can tell, I have no shame about my
weight. It's just a number on a scale people, and only you know it.
How do you FEEL? That's a better thing to measure.
Don't worry...I'll get to the details of my weight issues eventually.
For NOW...thanks for getting this far, and I'll give you an EASY recipe to start off with:
(these are from the Primal Blueprint meal plan)
6oz bar of Paleo-friendly dark chocolate...if you can find it.
1/2 C. dried plums (dude, they're prunes, just say it)
chocolate in a double broiler, or if you're like me, just melt that shit
on the stove...carefully. You're only a badass until you burn that
expensive Paleo-friendly chocolate. Cover your prunes in the chocolate,
let 'em cool on some parchment paper, then eat a couple a day so that
you stay regular. If you're just starting out on Paleo, you're probably
on protein overload and can't poop, so you're WELCOME.
