Cupcakes, Brownies, Cake, OH MY

Well, I made it through my second weekend of paleo. Let me tell you, it was not an easy one. It seemed like I had every temptation thrown at me.

It all started with my cousins second birthday party. In attendance were 2 of my closest friends, wine and cupcake. I said nope, not gonna do it, and sipped my water.
(my niece and Monty)

That same night was a bowling birthday party at Main Event for a friend. I didn't make it back in town early enough to eat dinner before the party, so I knew I was in trouble. However, I was determined not to cheat. I was surrounded by alcohol, hamburgers, pizza and CAKE. I may have sucked at bowling, but I came out like a CHAMP.

My last hoorah was a small get together to watch the Cowboys game with some friends. I suggested fajitas, no cheese, sour cream or tortillas, just meat, onions, bell peppers and guacamole. I thought if I take control of the food, there would be no temptation. Until I came across the cookie brownies. Seriously! Two delicious treats in ONE. I couldn't pass that up......but I did.

I couldn't have made it through the weekend without the help of Melisa Ann. She talked me out of some pretty close calls!

Peace Out,



  1. Dang, if I'd have been in your position, I would've caved in at the birthday party. I mean, c'mon, CUPCAKES. I have zero willpower in the presence of such a pretty and innocent-looking lil treat. lol

    I'm trying hard to make healthier food choices one meal at a time, so I feel your pain. Keep up the good fight!

  2. I agree. Now that's what I call will power! Congrats, from what I understand the first two weeks are the hardest. It's all down hill from here.
