You are making my mouth water!!!!

Happy day I lost.. 1.5 Since Sunday! YEAH and I am 1/2 to the squat challenge finish =)

I need to make something else for breakfast... I don't do the dinner thing since I take leftovers for lunch... so I am thinking about searching out some nice Paleo type muffins with coconut flour or something... anybody have any better ideas???

Also what is the "Ruling" on plain seltzer? It's just water with CO2. Since I quit drinking diet soda this is my drink of choice since I need those bubbles -lol

Oh does anyone know if Chickpeas are legumes? Approved or not? Got a great recipe to use them as kind of like a pizza crust

Hey everybody I'm so far behind on squats.... Worked in the yard but that did not count I guess--squat, scoot, elbow back. Squat, scoot, elbow back. Repeat like 900 times and I got the fertilizer done before it rained (glorious rain). Will do more tomorrow.

Seem to be in a stall. Not eating enough nuts/trail mix highly doubt. Have only had nuts/mix 3 out of last 5 days. In the last month I have stalled out. Maybe hit the wall. Dropped 20lbs very quickly in beginning--in less than 3 months. Need to cut down on 'tinis, even though they are sugar free- love ya Baja Bob. Every third night with a little alcohol should be sufficient or 2 glasses white wine which I havent had since August. Can't complain. Used to hit wall and gain back quickly, like in a week. Hasn't happened this time. Still off grains, wheat, sugar and mostly dairy. I found out what I can live without all of them.

Sticking with it as its really the first WOE that hubby really likes and no, he doesn't miss cheese a bit

Yes, I'm pretty sure chickpeas (a.k.a. garbanzo beans) are legumes.
I'm also falling behind in my squats, but I will catch up and meet this challenge!

Oh yah, I think you said that before. I always thought it looked like fun. Hard, punishing work, but the feeling of flying through the air must make it all worth it.

Yes and no... I HATE when she's on Beam and does a back handspring or tuck... In fear of her splitting the beam... and I think the worst is a front tuck because it's a BLIND LANDING... And bars... I alway fear of her hand not hitting it.. to top it off we watched Final Destination5 which had a gymnast that dies from a simple bail (high bar to the low bar)

I just made Fried Zucchini ribbons and YUM!!!!!! really simple too!

Use a potato pealer to make the ribbons... (only go down to the seeds - keep that for another dish)

and fry... you can use a Homemade Garlic style mayo to dip or eat as is.. they are YUMMY!

I wanted to make the ones like at Macaroni Grill but haven't figured out how to make them yet.. Never had them just saw them on commercial

I have never had success frying zucchini. But then again, I've never tried to fry it in ribbon form.

2012 Lenten Challenge Goes Primal

Update for the challenge.

I like that zucchini ribbon fry idea. I love ribbons PERIOD. Add some olive oil, a little lemon juice and crumbled feta or goat cheese. Yikes...now I'm hun-gar-ee for zucchini

Can I join you guys here? I did whole 30 for Jan and have moved to more of an 80/20 diet adding dairy & the occasional non-primal things back in.
I need to stay accountable or I'll be back to the off plan things being far more than 20% of my diet. LOL

Kylie's mom- my boys play water polo and right now they are on a "light" workout schedule because of the season. With that said, my youngest spent 6 hours in the pool yesterday...
I understand her schedule and the fact that it makes life crazy for the entire family.

Thanks for the welcome!
I'm going to post my meals here too...
While I would like to lose a little weight, mostly, this is about being healthy. I have never been much for breakfast, but I am trying to eat breakfast more often. (with that said, I just had coffee for breakfast yesterday)

Yesterday-
B-coffee w/ heavy whipping cream
L-waldorf salad (leftover chicken, mayo, half a small apple, a handful of pecans, celery)
D-"pub burgers" w/ mustard, tomato and in a lettuce wrap, red wine and a few strawberries after dinner
(the pub burgers are a recipe created by my DS- ground beef, chopped onion, undercooked bacon, garlic, salt, pepper mixed together like meatloaf, made into hamburger patties and cooked on the grill)
Exercise- push-ups, squats, planks and a walk

Speck, I have mostly followed Atkins for the last 10 years. I was majorly overdoing the dairy and "fake" foods. Even my kids were lecturing me on the artificial sweeteners etc.
Anyway, there are some great recipes from other lc cookbooks that work well for paleo some with a little modification, others as is. The waldorf salad was always one of my faves, no modifications needed, except I was less uptight with measuring than when I was counting carbs and just threw in a handful of this or that.
One of my other faves that I've modified is a roasted red pepper soup. The original recipe called for cheese as a garnish and heavy whipping cream. I made it with coconut milk a couple of weeks ago & just left out the cheese and it was even better than with the hwc.

Good job KM on the squats. Woefully behind here And just sloppy too. Forgetting to put something out to thaw for dinner, missed items at grocery store, etc. To be fair, I've been snowed under with "stuff" that needs to be done. Will make next week stricter. Holy Week anyway...gotta do better. Squat, 1, squat 2....

Good recipe for tonite: Time for that meatball party I
Add a fab chopped salad and ooh mama! Yum!

I'm almost done with my squat challenge. I am going to try to wrap it up today.
I'm happy to report that my garden is growing nicely. The only thing that hasn't sprouted yet are the chives. I replanted them, too, and still nada. Maybe I got a bad batch.

I went over to Sprout's today and got some quinoa (finally), coconut oil, almond flour and lots of nuts and seeds to make nut & seed bars and sesame crackers out of. I found a couple of really cool items, Coconut Dream unsweetened beverage and Spectrum coconut oil cooking spray! When I got it home I looked at the ingredient list more carefully, and it also said "soy" I will still use it, but probably won't buy it again.

woot woot! I completed the 500 squat challenge! It's amazing how a few squats a day have tightened up my muscles in such a short period of time. And how quickly my endurance increased. yay!

Speck!Good for you! Had a not-bad, but bizzy week but should have done more squats. I'm going to be inspired by you and re-up my commitment to doing more (and more) of them. I was ssssoooo sloppy this week. I knew I needed to slow down and take time for well...squats among other things. Trying to pace myself this week since it's another big church week *I'm the flower coordinator* and I can't really wait till it's all over.

Weather here is beautiful and we have actually had rain. Our scorched earth is healing. Been gardening with a vengeance but that is only real exercise I've had. Need to write up on my challenge which is ending next Friday. I will miss it a bit but can't think of anything I want to go run out and buy...except maybe some good goat cheese, and Republic of China Peach T$a oh and am running out of good (read:EXPENSIVE) olive oil. Have to have a cheapie week cuz this last one was sloppy *there's that word again*.

I was busy in the kitchen today. I cooked up a big batch of paleo meatballs, some seed and nut bars and a batch of primal sunflower sesame seed crackers. They're still in the oven, and this is my first crack at them, so I'll let you know how they are later.
... Ok, I'm back. I love these crackers! I love the taste and texture. They will be awesome with spreads and dips. I think I like them better than almond crackers, which are also awesome.

I fell 75 short... due to deciding to go to the beach with DD to catch some rays and get myself into this century and go get an I phone! I downloaded the *** App - YEAH what a GREAT tool! I also did a cheat :-( Went to red lobster and had a Cheddar Bay Biscuit... Boy oh Boy did I suffer! My old panic attacks came right back into full force.. interesting.... Anyway I am back on track today and excited about my lunch =) I brough a nice avocado and some procutto to wrap around it... yummy! Dinner will be a fast to get rid of the Nasty Wheat that is still hanging around in my system!

I need to lose 2.5 lbs by Thursday... don't think I am gonna make it but hey I am close!

****note the new challenge in my siggy line****
