Some of you may remember two months back when I announced that I was going to go down the Paleo path to help myself eat cleaner, reduce stress and improve my overall health.
I flood your Instagram feeds with my #hashtag #Paleo #omgSOyummy meals because Paleo is my main squeeze and I can see us in a long healthy relationship together.
As a promoter of a healthy lifestyle through food and running I feel that I owe you a sincere confession for all of the cheating I've been doing lately (on Paleo, sweetheart!)
It all started to fall off the wagon when I was in Toronto for the second time and had a piece of pizza here, a few tortilla chips there, maybe even some delicious croutons on a salad. Beer and wine added into the mix and I forgot the reasons I'd started Paleo. Through travelling back and forth I was able to use that as an excuse for not being strict with a schedule, a meal plan and even my food prep has been non-existent.
I still do an amazing job at avoiding latte's, yogurt, cheese, bread and some of my bigger past offenders, but there's been a few 'occasions' where the amazing food groups you see below have been devoured, craved and even begged for.
- Fiery Doritos Locos Taco | Taco Bell
- Endless Shrimp | Red Lobster
- Steak and Endless Shrimp | Outback Steakhouse
- Reese's Blizzard | Dairy Queen
- Grape Licorice | All the places
I act like Dan is the instigator but I'm pretty sure even the golden retrievers would be witness to Monday night when Dan was looking in the produce drawer asking what I wanted for dinner and only a quick "TCBLL" was blurted from my mouth. Like I was ashamed to be saying it out loud but knowing that it was going to feel so right.
That fateful night Dan didn't hesitate to jump in the car and get almost every food group on the menu so that I could 'sample'. As always, he picked up the slack when I was too full and my eyes out-ordered my stomach.
Our meal included but was not limited to:
- Mexican Pizza (1)
- Fiery Doritos Locos Tacos (3)
- Cheesy Gordita Crunch (2)
- Smothered Burrito (1)
- Volcano Nachos (1)
- Fiesta Beef Taco Salad (1)
None of that was paleo, by the way.
So all I'm asking is for someone to help me be more like this adorable baby koala please and not be so bad at life? K Thanks!
