My early 30s...

Are off to a great start!

I indulged a little, had a silly and fun night with Chris, but didn't go overboard. It was a quiet night alone with Chris, too, which is what I wanted.

I had two sushi rolls and two drinks out at dinner with Chris. Then we each got 1/4 bar of chocolate to eat in bed while we watched Kitchen Nightmares. PERFECT. :D

I always prefer chocolate to cake, and eating 100-200 calories of chocolate is WAY easier than eating a big ol' piece of cake and then having the rest of the cake in the house all week.

Sushi = not paleo, obviously. But I ADORE sushi. It is going to be a part of my diet for the rest of my life, especially when we go to Japan in October, haha. It's not the worst food if you order it right (meaning eat the raw fish, not the tempura, don't get something drenched in wasabi mayo, etc). And I did just that. My normal portion is probably more like one, one and a half rolls... but I ate both the rolls I ordered.

Tonight is going to be where I put my foot down. It's TV night with friends, and I want to go, but I am going to eat a delicious meal at home with Chris (bunless burgers, roasted sweet potatoes and sauteed brussels sprouts) right before we go and I am NOT going to eat any treats provided by my friends (unless by some weird twilight zone world someone puts out cut up melon or carrot sticks).

I have been holding steady with average attention to food and exercise this past month. I want to see how March shapes up when I put ALL of myself into it :D

Year 31.... GO!


  1. I love Kitchen Nightmares! And also sushi. It doesn't matter how I'm eating; sushi is always okay in my book.


  2. So you did decide to go to Japan! Awesome! :)

    1. Hell yeah! Even paid up front so I can't feel bad about spending the money later and we are good to go in October (I can NOT wait!)

  3. I think it's really awesome that you made that post and it turns out that there was carrot sticks at Amy's.
