Looking into living Paleo

So... a little over a month ago I was in Austin with some of my favorite people ever. A couple of my friends that I hadn't seen in a long while looked absolutely amazing. Because I can be tacky and speak my mind I had to have thorough understandings of how they were making this happen successfully. I have struggled over the last 5(ish) years of weight yo-yo-ing. They both are living "Paleo" and were doing Crossfit. My interest was peaked after talking with them. I started going some online research to learn more about it (the Paleo... not so much the Crossfit). One of my coworkers in Phoenix was also doing Paleo along with his family and had lost a good amount of weight. He recommended that I check out Everyday Paleo and start from there.

I've lost 8 pounds within the first month. I think this is from cutting out the breads and cheese. I decided to restart the blog to try to hold myself more accountable to this. I also figured I could add the recipes that I try along the way since I have found some really yummy foods that I never thought I would like.

One of my bestest friends ever, Chez, introduced me to Pinterest while I was in Austin and I am a FAN! I have found a lot of great Paleo recipes on it and I am thankful to have a place to 'store' all of my online recipes I find. I found this recipe online and thought I would give them a try. They are not near this pretty but they taste deli!!

Morale of the story, I will do my best to update this blog more than every two years with recipes and what's going on with the Goode-Wicks of Tucson.

Peace.

I am now your blog stalker, so I will know what's up! Saw that Brooke had read your blog on FB and am so glad the Paleo is working well for you! Lylaf

YOU BLOGGED! :)

Yes! We can all get behind cheese being trouble. I thought I would miss it so much but it's really been fine. Maybe I would feel the same if I gave up sugar? Hmmm. Somehow I doubt it, but that's still a "one day" goal.

I'm excited to see some of your fav recipes - knowing you, I'm betting you're more into the fruit/veggie/nuts stuff than the meat stuff, so I'm hoping there will be some yummy overlap! Love you!
