The Toddler “Off” Button

What’s up, my bloggies?

We had a super chill lazy weekend. Apparently there was a football game or something. I’m not sure; all I know is I’m waiting for esurance to tell me I won my $1.5 million.

Squish and I made a farmer’s market run,


I wore him out at the playground,


Yeah, he just decided to lay down on top of the slide. Apparently I had found the toddler ‘off” button.

I was up later than I wanted to be frantically finishing up food prep for the week. I procrastinated on it all Sunday, thinking that if I started it would be bad timing, or something would come up like an invitation to do something while I had an oven full of roasting, two pots boiling over on the range, and a pile of half-chopped veggies. Of course nothing happened all day except me literally spinning in circles because I had so much to do but nothing to do but if I started to do something then is wouldn’t have time to finish it because I have so much to do. Gah, good think Hulk was working all weekend. I’m exhausting to live with.

Anyway, I did make some yummy food.



And I made a bomb-diggidy lunch to bring to the office.


Grass fed beef, b’nut squash, brussel sprouts FTW. 1/2 an avo with some raw veggies and a pack of AB for when the munchies strike.

Okay, now time for the confessions.

I didn’t eat enough on Friday or Saturday. One thing I know when you switch to a paleo-whole-food eating thing is you have to EAT. Skipping and restricting isn’t an option. So, I sort of was too lazy to buy food and cook it, and by Sunday night I was through-the-bones ravenous. It want the “sugar shakes”, and it wasn’t the growly-in-the-tummy hungry. It was an all-consuming fatigue I felt in my bones. So crazy. So, of course, I lost it and shoved a whole bunch of food in my face, food I didn’t want to eat on this plan but wasn’t the deal-breakers of dairy and gluten. I had about 4 chocolates that our CouchSurfing friends left, dove into the tortilla chips bowl, and drank about 4 beers during the Super Bowl. Then after my food prep I had a slice of a pork loin roast while I cleaned up the kitchen. Hardly a leisurely and satisfying meal.¬†Anyway, that happened.

Time to move on with Monday. Can you believe I wrote most of this post in between sets at the gym? It’s a good use of time.
