Got a late start this morning so no breakfast since I'm meeting my hubs for lunch soon.  We're having guests up for dinner this weekend for my MIL and my husbands birthdays (he's 32!) so trying to figure out a menu.  We made a pretty bangin' pulled pork last weekend that I'm tempted to do again..trying to keep the budget on the lower side since we're feeding 13 people.  Weather is amazing here...feels like fall! 

salad w/ dark meat chicken, pico & guac
chicken wings (the rest of the fam is ordering pizza)
latte (it's friday - planned cheat)

Been an absentee for a while...short story Darcy Kate was born on July 3rd (10 days late!) at a healthy 8lb 12oz.  She was my 3rd and final unmedicated childbirth, extremely painful this time around and had a bunch of complications afterwards so recovery was a bit longer than my previous births.  But...she's here and our family is complete barring any very large OOPS in the future.  In the past 4 weeks or so I've been moving back to Paleo, I didn't want to disrupt my milk supply by abruptly changing my diet so I took it slow.  I'm pretty much back with the exception of some dairy which I ate before anyways and plan to continue unless it starts to cause problems.  Since officially transitioning back 4 weeks ago I've lost 9 lbs; faster than I'd prefer to lose but I'm not restricting food at all and eating to satiety so I'm not concerned.  Probably a chunk was water weight from the transition away from grains again.

It's hard when they're little little - I agree with the others, if it's from the grandparents you've gotta keep it for a while.  Things like art supplies, books and usually clothes are always welcome in our house for all of our children.  My oldest is now 4.5 and we ask for non-material gifts like a gift certs to the hockey rink so he can go to free-skate, or passes to the bounce place, swimming lessons at the Y etc...  When they're younger it's definitely harder to send the message that you can only have so much crap in your house!

Super tired lately, DH has been working crazy hours so i'm kind of getting sick of the single parent thing.  Eating has been OK, most of the time good but I've definitely had my moments.  Went out the the farm today and picked up fresh hot dogs, hot italian pork sausage, a huge flank steak and some ground beef.  I would have bought more but it was already a 60 dollar purchase.  Weekend plans are still up in the air, no idea what the in-laws are doing but my mom and brother are coming for the weekend so I'm looking forward to seeing them.  The farm was smoking hams when I got there, very tempting to buy one, maybe I'll plan on one next year.

Last two days haven't been the best, been fighting a lot of reflux and it's close cousin nausea so eating more carbs than usual.  Had my 30 weeks appointment today and everything looks good, baby's head down, BP was 112/64, no gestational diabetes so about as good as it can be.

Got my new 6.5" cast iron skillet today - perfect size for two eggs fried in butter!  Can't wait to test it out this weekend  ;D

Sundays meals:

B: 2 eggs fried in org butter

L:  faye 2% with ~2/3 c. strawberries

D:  leg of lamb, asparagus and tomato/ricotta/parm/basil risotto (my hubs made it special so I had a small portion)

S: Handful of nuts


B: 2 hard boiled eggs

L: faye2%, 1/2 Tbsp agave (8 g carb)
    one too many chocolate smidgens, we'll blame it on the baby  :)

D:  plan on leftover lamb topped w/ carmelized onions & a sprinkling of goat cheese
      spring mix salad w/ grape tom, cucumber, balsamic vin & oil

Weight is still staying steady so I'm happy with that!  184 today and really hoping to top out around 190 for the end of my pregnancy - ~10 weeks to go so it will be hard but not completely impossible.

I'm down over 2 pounds from yesterdays weight (whew!), I think a lot was water retention so let's say we're at a 20 lb gain currently.  Did pretty good today, up until I had some dark chocolate smidgens  :-[ I'd only eaten ~45g carbs.  Planning on either a grilled chicken salad for dinner or some roasted chicken w/ veg, we'll see.

At 29 weeks I've officially hit the 22lbs gained mark..eek!  I'm aiming for 100-150g carbs daily from here on out.  I don't have gestational diabetes (didn't anticipate that I would) so that's a plus.  It's hard not to fall for quick/easy foods when I'm so freaking tired by the end of the day.  My husband had been working late for the past two+ weeks so it's just me and the kids for dinner every night.  I was good and made roasted chicken tonight with organic broccoli tossed in organic butter.  The kids had pineapple for dessert, I of course had none   :)

Wow it's been quite a while!  I actually found out I was pregnant about two weeks after my last post - first month trying, a bit of a shocker for us.'s a girl so we're super excited - two boys and a girl, we're done!  I'm currently 25 weeks pregnant and have gained ~13 pounds so far, more than I wanted at this stage but pretty in line with my previous pregnancies.  I have definitely strayed from the Paleo quite a but and need to return to eating better.  The constant heartburn has set in so I don't know how much of anything I'll be eating in the next couple weeks.  Hope to get back to posting my menus soon, they won't be as strict as they were before but hopefully keep the total carbs around 100g, I'm not looking to lose (obviously) but want to have a healthy remainder of my pregnancy.

Warren - I'm trying for the timing suggested by Shettles, tracking temps and all that fun stuff.  I never did any of it for my first two but this will be my last and I want to shoot for that girl!

Eating, not so good - both boys are sick, DH is out of town on business until tomorrow night so my eating has been all over the place.  Between doctors visits, crying children, baths 4x a day for one I'm just exhausted and done, I'm not cooking anything that takes more than 5 min!  Tomorrow isn't going to be any less crazy unfortunately.

Ahhh!  Where has the time gone, Dan was away on business for almost two weeks, then we went on vacation to the Outer Banks for over a week - I have been so absent and so so bad.  I must admit vacation included ice cream almost daily (I don't keep it in the house for that very reason!) a decent amount of beer and some not-so-paleo foods.

On a positive note my husband and I have decided to start trying for baby #3 (please let it be a girl!) so I'll be a preggo-paleo hopefully in the near future  ;D  I'll start posting my food tomorrow, for now it's off to bed - I should have been sleeping two hours ago!  On a side note the weather is freaking amazing - I love fall!

Thanks for the advice, I asked the farm where I buy my meat and they also use round roast.  But, they don't sell it because he uses it all for the jerky type (it's way better than jerky though) product that he sells.  Maybe I can get some from my backup beef source.
