Ah well, that will pass. Thanks for the advice tho.
    I find that for a lot of women, the idea of adding muscle is a scary proposition just because most of us think we're going to "bulk up" like female bodybuilders. Unless you're taking steroids, don't worry about it. Strong is the new sexy.

            O hai!

            Hey guys! Sorry it's been a while. Was out in CA for a few days before I move back there.

            Ummm lesse what to report... well, the first day Jeff and I went to B&N and picked up the PB Cookbook! I was super excited to get that, because I've kind of been making variations of the same things for the past 2 weeks, so it was cool to flip through the book and see other options, as well as the substitutes and desserts section! So for that night, we picked the Bison Chili to make! We headed to Whole Foods, picked up everything we needed, and it was so easy to make! Think this is going to become a favorite quick stand-by. It was so good I took a picture to show you guys. ;D

            I really thought that in these few days gone, some cheating was bound to happen, and I was kind of stressed about it... but as it turned out, the only small cheat was when we were taken out to dinner to a nice Italian place in LA, and surprisingly the cheat wasn't even pasta (well--kind of. There WAS a lobster mac & cheese at the table that I did have a few bites from... but it could have been much, much worse with the pasta!). ;D I got a NY steak that came with garlic spinach, and some sweet potato mashed potatoes. I shouldn't have felt guilty for eating them because I've been SO good, but truth be told I did feel a liiiiiiiiittle guilty. Oh well! They were delicious and I'm back on track now.

            As far as some exercise goes, we went to Malibu before the dinner mentioned above. Got some nice vitamin D, and even managed some sprints and play on the beach. (2 days later my abs and legs are still a little sore!) I didn't have much intention to get in the water, but silly me I was about knee deep when a decent sized wave came along... I tried to hop over it but got knocked on my ass in the water instead, lol. Decided what the hell and played in the water for a bit.

            The next day we went and saw Crazy, Stupid, Love and wandered around IKEA, getting ideas for how we want to decorate the apartment. I officially move back in about 2 weeks (give or take) and I can't wait! A couple not very exciting pics below... didn't take many while I was out there, unless you want to see shots of furniture

              I think I'll just have to buy the PB cookbook (tomorrow, when I get paid!). I've been waiting to hear more people say "yes it's awesome!". Nice suit, btw, I look awful in pink, but it suits you! I'm jealous of your figure, my ribcage is long and wide, so i don't have a very narrow waist.

                Only made the one thing from it so far, but I think it's going to be great! It's broken down in to categories of meat (fowl, beef, offal, etc) and like I said it has the substitutes section (rutabega chips!) and desserts which I'm excited about. The book itself is kind of pricy, so I was going to get it on my eReader, but I think the pictures and everything are worth it. I'm sure you'd get much use out of it!

                Thanks for the compliment That suit is so old from VS, and the pink is pretty obnoxious, but I still love it, haha.

                  The pink is cute. Suits you.

                  How was Crazy Stupid Love???? I seriously want to see that and am thinking I may be able to talk the hubs into a movie night Saturday. We may actually be fully and utterly kidless that night.

                    Yay for being kidless! I say go see it! I really enjoyed it... and I dragged my BF to go see it and he liked it too Steve Carell and Julianne Moore are great in it!

                      I love both of them. I really like Emma Stone but I really don't think she's as bitter as she usually is in movies and I enjoy her angst.

                        Fewd!!!

                        Okay, soooo... I saw this recipe on a blog I follow for paleo dirty rice. I looooooooove dirty rice and ironically enough had been craving it the past couple weeks, so I was super excited when I saw this! For those of you that don't know, dirty rice is a Cajun dish made with rice and usually liver and/or sausage, but really it can be made with any meat... and it gives the rice a 'dirty' look, hence the name.

                        Anyhow, so! Not much to say other than I followed her recipe exactly (Cajun “Dirty (Cauli) Rice” « The Primal Sophisticate) and it came out amazing! It was sooo good, and tasted just like the dirty rice I've made before, minus the cereal grain. If you guys like this type of flavor, I highly recommend trying it!!

                              Heeellooo errybooddyy.

                              Sorry it's been a few days since my last update, but honestly I don't have much to say these days. Still chugging along... been pretty good the past week. Since being home from California, I've had only one cheat, and I felt so horrible while I was doing it that surely it was worth if for nothing more than the learning experience.

                              My friend convinced me to go get sushi with her, and went to just an average place... known more for being cheap than good, and we did their lunch buffet which has an assortment of things aside from sushi. I went up with my plate and got some fruit, a hard boiled egg, some spicy tofu dish, and like 7 pieces of sushi (some Cali roll, spicy tuna, and one piece of a Vegas roll I think is what it was...) I kind of picked at my plate, already feeling guilty about eating the rice, buuuut I figured I've been so disciplined that a little sushi couldn't hurt.

                              Anyhow so I had maybe 4 pieces of the 7 or so I got, and felt really, really full. And it wasn't even that good. Total waste of a cheat, IMO. Next time, it's going to be for something that I really, really miss that I will enjoy (well, maybe) eating. I just felt gross and bloated after that. Blech. Next time I'll stick with the sashimi.

                              On a side note... my kind of staple dinner has been just going to Whole Foods and grabbing whatever veggies and meat I feel like, sauteeing everything together with a little butter and some random spice (past couple days has been cajun seasoning) throwing it in a bowl, and that's it. It tends to work out pretty well and I'm not bored of it yet, but sometimes I feel like.. it tastes so good, how can I be on a 'diet'? Or then I panic and think I someone missed some non-Primal ingredient that managed to sneak its way in to my pan. Ah well, hopefully I'll get over that feeling.

                              I've decided I'm not going to step on a scale for a week. Weighing myself is really messing with my head and discouraging me, so... no longer! For a while anyway. Alright well enough ramble, here's a picture of what I made last night. (Carrots, cauliflower, tomato, mushrooms, onion, chicken, with some cajun seasoning)

                                Crazy Stupid Love was great! Great funny movie with a great cast and the fight scene at the end was tremendous!
