St Patrick's Day Dinner and Groceries

Last night, I went to my cousins house for a traditional St. Patrick's Day dinner of corned beef and cabbage. My cousin makes really amazing corned beef, getting it from a local source. I don't usually like corned beef, but it's the best I've ever had! 

It was nice seeing my family, it's the father's side of my family and we have all been through a lot together in the past couple of years, losing my dad and then my grandmother recently.

I went off paleo for dessert - I had a mint brownie and 2 chocolate chip cookies. Very much on the agenda for the day, I might add!! Once again, this week has been a very great eating week for me. I have easily stayed on plan and kept all my foods whole and fresh and on my personal Paleo-ish template. So once a week dessert indulgence feels pretty damned good.

Chris is off hiking again today - hiking his 44th and 45th mountains in his pursuit of hiking the winter 46. He is actually not going to finish and hike his 46th mountain this season, he's going to wait until next winter when our good friend, who loves hiking but had to have knee surgery this year, can finish with him.

So I was on my own for Sunday shopping at the co-op. We get a student discount on Sundays (the only time I'm glad I'm still a student!). Only spent $50 and got two huge, heavy bags full of food, including, but not limited to: apples, acorn squash, mushrooms, tomatoes, raisins, sunflower seeds, two cartons of coconut milk, two tubs of yogurt, two jars of salsa, organic barbecue sauce, Tamari soy sauce, frozen organic peas, navel oranges, two huge bunches of organic kale, beets, spinach, sweet potatoes, a jar of local and organic berry preserves, and a little bar of dark caramel sea salt chocolate (I've definitely broken my chocolate addiction, and we only buy one bar week now, and wow, do I enjoy that bar so much more!!). I can't remember what else... It took forever to put away!!

I'm about to walk the dog, do some yoga and meet some girls I'm in a wedding with in August for brunch to make bachelorette plans :)

I probably won't be weighing in too much for a while.... For a very good, exciting reason :) It's too early to make an official announcement but I'm also not superstitious (and definitely very open - I love having community support in good AND bad situations). I'll have the official everything is fine or it's not quite right in early April. Will let you know then!!

Namaste <3
