It's Wednesday and that means...

Time for another weigh-in. Blerg. Can't get excited about this one as I didn't lose any weight, but I kind of expected that.
Jason and I had a long talk on Sunday about our eating plan. Neither one of us is really happy about how difficult it is to eat the Paleo way. He struggles with it a lot more than I do because he has never been a lover of vegetables or salads. Serious carboholic, that one. Anyway, we discussed the fact that it really isn't enjoyable to eat anymore. Most of the time we are all, "What do you want to have for dinner? I don't know, what do you want to have?" until one of us comes us with a idea. Planning does not come naturally to me and neither does coming up with things on the fly.

Long story short (too late) is that we are going to keep eating Paleo, but do it more on a 85/15 basis instead of 100% all the time. That gives us a little break and a way to "cheat" without completely sabotaging ourselves. I am going to start looking for a really good Paleo cookbook to put on my Christmas list. There are lots of great resources online, but I still like being able to look up a recipe in an actual book.

We did finally get the Costco membership we've been talking about for two years and had our first Costco shopping trip. That was an experience. I'm going to have to get used to the idea of buying things in bulk. I really don't need 5 tubes of toothpaste! Also, did you know that Costco sells wedding dresses? Tres chic, but who knows if I'm ever getting married again. And, I'm okay with that. Although the idea of running off to Vegas to get married and then coming back and having a huge kick-ass party really appeals to me. Is it wrong to get married just to have the reception? If it is, then I don't want to be right.

Well, I managed to veer off into some weird territory there. I'm working from home today so I don't have anyone else to talk to which results in less of a filter on my inner thoughts. You're welcome. The good news is that I can actually go for a run on my lunch break. I slacked last night because I wasn't feeling good and I still need to get my runs in. Gotta get prepped for my 2nd 5k which will be on Thanksgiving morning. I'm determined to run the entire thing this time. With that, I'll leave you with this little gem I dug out of a drawer this weekend. It was actually the ex's shirt from college. The nickname came from me for a couple different reasons. ;)

Apropos, no?
