Yummy Paleo treats!

So this weekend I finally gathered all the ingredience I need for a couple sweet treat Paleo recipes Ive been wanting to try!! And wowza!! They were YUMMMY!! So I thought I would share! On was Paleo fudge. It is peanut butter and cocoa chocolate so its not strictly chocolate fudge, but I thought it was delicious! Here is the link to the recipe Another one I tried was for Paleo Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies....these were even better than the fudge. The recipe doesn't make many, and I ate them all in 2 days! :) And still lost weight!! :D Hope you all like them as much as I did!! Even my kids liked the cookies! I didn't let them try my fudge! I wanted some saved for me for another day! :)
Wow, been a long while since I took time to blog! I have recently started a new phase of my life more commonly known as going PALEO! I was scared to death at first, but really its not as hard as it would seem! I dont crave sweets or bread or any of the things I use to crave all the time! So I decided I will start posting some of the yummy recipes I come across her...mainly so I can keep track of them all, but also to help others who may want them as well! So look for posts to happen a lot more frequently!

Kickstart Week Results are IN!

Soooo...weigh in day from my kickstart week are here! Although I am very frustrated because mother nature hates me and decided I needed a 2nd period this month so I am sure that hurt my results, I am still extremely happy with them!!! Here they are!!! Starting weight: 212 Waist 37" Hips 50" Right Arm 14.5" Left Arm 14" Right Thigh 28.5" Left Thigh 29" RESULTS: Weight 205 (Yes thats right, Im down SEVEN POUNDS in one week!!!) Waist 35.5" Hips 49" Right Arm 14" Left Arm 14" Right Thigh 28.5 Left Thigh 28" So, I am down 7 lbs and 4 inches in 1 week...NOT TOO SHABBY!! I am so thrilled with those results. And since Aunt Flow came to visit Im sure that made my results a little less than they would have been, so hopefully next Monday I will see another great result! I am keeping going with Jillian Michaels Body Revolution, but Im out of the kickstart week now so it wont be quite so strict! Thank goodness!! I will keep posting my result here so you can see how well this program works! So excited!

Week 1 Day 4 Body Revolution

I am halfway there! Its not been quite as bad as I thought it was going to be. I have added an extra snack so that I have the energy to make it through the workouts, and so that I dont feel like Im gonna chew my arm off! If that makes me lose a tiny bit less Im ok with that. I dont want to starve all week then binge when the week is over cuz then whats the point? So, I did my workout last night and it was great! I didn't workout this morning cuz hubby is sick so I was up late. So I will just do both workouts this evening. I will of course still walk on both my breaks here at work. And since I missed this morning workout I will push extra hard on those walks...thinking speed walking with incline. That should break a good sweat! So excited to see the number on the scale Monday! Usually Im not this excited cuz I haven't been seeing the numbers I want, but this week Im SO excited! When you know you are doing what you need to do, those weigh ins aren't as intimidating!

Week 1 Day 3 Body Revolution

Ok, so yesterday was day 2...on day 1 I didn't feel hungry at all, but on day 2 I started to get hungry. And during my evening workout I felt kinda weak, so I added a little to the diet plan in order to pick myself up. Doing so I still stayed within my calorie range for SP so I am good with it. Today I also decided to add in a protein bar as a morning snack to help fuel me through my workouts. It only adds 190 calories and since her kickstart plan only gives you 1200 Im not gonna sweat that. I broke down and got on the scale this morning even tho I told myself I wouldn't, and let me just say I am so excited for Monday to see my "official" weigh in! I wont spoil it by telling you what I lost but it made me want to jump up and down! And its only been two days! Loving it! So far this morning of day 3 I did a 2 mile run, with 10 minutes of warm up and cool down walking. Throughout the day I plan on doing 15 minute walks on my 2 breaks, and then doing Jillians workout this evening. I decided to start doing this kickstart plan not because I want to eat this way forever, but because I think getting that good kick start will help with my motivation, and because I have a float trip coming up in 2 weeks and 2 days and I want to lose as much as I can before having to wear a bathing suit!

Week 1 Day 2 Body Revolution

Well, yesterday went really well! I am very proud of myself that I could lay my head on the pillow last night and know that I did exactly what I was planning. I followed the plan exactly and made it through a whole day! Which for me is a major thing cuz I am the queen of "small cheats" A small peice of chocolate here and there...a diet pop when I say Im quitting pop...things like that always seem to creep in on me. I still lose but not as quickly as I could. So a whole day of NO cheating is AMAZING! And I wasn't starving! I was pretty suprised about that. Cuz you get to eat enough, but its a LOT of greens and I was afraid I would be hungry. I wasn't hungry, I had the energy to make it through all the workouts...and I woke up this morning ready to do it again! Im really excited to see the number on the scale at the end of this week!
