Whats been happening??????

I hope this finds you all well whether you are on your Paleo journey or just getting by in the day to day. Life has been crazy lately, which has severely limited my time to get on here and update this blog. I've said it before and failed miserably but I am going to try and get back here more regularly and keep this project going.

How have I been? Well I got a great new job - it pays well too!, My new daughter is growing up too quickly, Winter is coming (hehe hehe) no but really it is, I have a product review I need to post up here, I have a giveaway for all of you that have stuck around, I hurt my shoulder so slacked at the gym for the last 4 weeks, slacked on the Paleo as well and have been eating horribly (thank you 10lbs for coming back....jerk)...but through all that I am better off. I got back after it today, shoring up the eating and will be back in the gym likely next week to get this all rolling again.  If I have learned anything through all of this, it is this: Mistakes are going to happen, but don't dwell on them. I can sit around and be lazy or I can get back at it and continue my journey. Fortunately I have chosen the latter.....hopefully you will come along with me!


I found this very fitting for the times......

I have so much to share with you...product reviews, new information I have been testing out, workouts...all kinds of stuff. Please keep checking back I will get around to it!

Food Log: 

Food has been good, 100% complaint with the Whole30 program, until today I had 2 bites of a waffle. Yeah I'm terrible haha! Staying on track with the Paleo eating Makes me feel great and I can definitely tell a difference in the way I look as well!


This has been a storm of activity as well. I started a strength and conditioning program on Monday Sept 21st and have been dedicated and motivated. Haven't missed a workout and have added substantial gains to my squat, deadlift, overhead press and bench press! Finally got in and got after it!
