I am a list girl. Lists make me happy. Lists make me feel organized. Lists make me feel smarter. I prefer to make lists with pen and paper…so I can literally cross things off my list. My hubby always says I need to just list it in my phone. “Use the notes on your phone”, he says. “It’s easier”, he says. Well I say, “phhhht!” No thanks…I will stick to pen and paper. They make me happy. (Except when I leave my notebook of lists at home…and then I wish I had listened to the hubster.)
ANYWHO!! Today I listed some “no-no’s” of strict paleo; I listed some “borderline” paleo; I listed items to stock up on; I listed kitchen tools I may want to buy; I listed recipes; and I listed paleo blogs from where I “copied” said recipes. Did I tell you I like lists? I am beginning to feel so PALEO!! Do I sound any different? I think I’ve already lost some weight!
My lists showed me that I am going to be listing A LOT more if I don’t want to fall off the wagon in 2 days. This new lifestyle is going to take time…money…preparation and I will need to plan it out weekly if not daily. I took my pantry list and marked through the items I already had. Marking through some items that I don’t have to buy made me happy, happy, happy. Mark through = less money I have to spend tomorrow. Yay for me!
Tomorrow night I plan on making Pork Chops with mushroom sauce and Spicy Smashed Sweet Potatoes. I don’t think sweet potatoes are on the “strict” paleo diet…but I ain’t claiming to be strict!! Remember, baby steps. I found some good sites to help me out on this transition. A few of my new favs are Paleo Cupboard, Paleomg, and Civilized Caveman. So who is super excited to take her lists and head out to the grocery store tomorrow!! >>THIS GIRL<< Let’s do this!
**The Pork chops with mushroom sauce were SO good!! A++ from the hubby**
