A little vacay...

Can ruin even the best of intentions.  Gatlinburg for the Roby Reunion was a great time, but not great for the waistline or tummy.  Not to mention VBS food wasn't exactly Paleo friendly either.  But it's just like my Dad used to tell me when I was little--  if you fall off the horse you get back on again.  So today I not only got back on the horse, I decided to incorporate working out.  Just started Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and that woman means business.  My entire body is Jell-O after ONE twenty minute video.  Hears hoping for the healthiest me ever--  and a little endurance to push through the pain I know will follow in the days to come.

Our summertime paleo appetizer:

Garden fresh tomatoes from the Clarksville Farmer's Market with an olive oil drizzle and dash of sea salt.

A little slice of Paleo heaven...

One of the things I have missed the most since starting Paleo are the sweets--  no grains, no dairy, no fried deliciousness I have really been able to be okay without.  Sweets have been another story, it is a battle not to pull in DQ everyday on the way home for a blizzard.

This little beaut is a recent find at Publix this afternoon and I decided I would get it and try it...  Much to my surprise, it's as good as the real deal folks.  Yummo!!!

I'm old.

Today when I got home from work I was as excited as a kid on Christmas morning because there was a brown box on my back deck.  It's contents was this little beauty:

You know you're getting older when you are this excited over a kitchen utensil.  But in my defense, see how shiny it is!!  

This is a Cooks Essentials Pressure Cooker, Chad and I were given a set of Cooks Essentials pots and pans as a wedding present that we still use and love to this day, so I am hoping this will hold up just as well.  Plus, it was on QVC easy pay and ya can't beat that.

Looking forward to making spaghetti squash with marinara in this bad boy tonight!
