that paleo life

Hello, lovely people! Wow, I cannot believe it's already September! This year has been super crazy busy! There are only a few more months left of 2016, but it's not going to stop me from getting back into a realistic routine.

Over three years ago, I discovered the Paleo diet, and had great success with it. It helped me drop the remaining baby weight after having my daughter. I lost a total of 95 pounds (not all because of Paleo) before getting pregnant with my son during the summer of 2013. After having my son, I ate a very strict Paleo diet, and got back into shape. All I did was eat Paleo approved food, running, yoga, and going to the gym. I didn't have to do anything crazy, and lost 40 pounds in four months.

I loved eating Paleo, but for the past year I have been eating this way on and off. My body hates me for it too. I am bloated, stressed, unmotivated, I don't sleep well, and always craving awful foods - like sugar.

It's now time to get back into my old routine, I loved how eating Paleo made me feel. I had tons of energy, my skin looked amazing, my hair and nails grew fast, and I didn't feel bloated. I also had motivation to run, do yoga, and go to the gym - AND LESS STRESS. Paleo works for me. Don't fix what's not broken, right?

So, I am back into my old ways of eating - Paleo. I don't want to do a Whole30 right now, since I really enjoy smoothies (that's a gray area with Whole30), and I really want to make some Paleo tortillas, and Paleo zucchini bread. Plus I want to have balance - you know a glass of wine!

I really miss meal prepping, and and cooking - a lot. Overall, I miss my old healthy habits, and I am back into my old routine. Grocery list is complete, and my meals are planned for the next couple of weeks! I cannot wait to share my journey to get back into shape, and some yummy food!!

Fall seven times, stand up eight.

xo, Steph 

**here are some great resources if you are looking to eat Paleo or start a Whole30


  1. I'm looking forward to following along. Trying to get back into the meal prep and workout routine with school starting again.

  2. That's great Stephanie! Paleo makes me feel great too. I am going to try to start eating that way more regularly as well. You inspire me too! Keep it up.
