Oh Ma Gosh! This morning was my first day of Insanity. Let me tell you that it is no joke and day one is the fit test. I haven't even gotten to the nitty gritty but I can't wait. It was a nice change from P90x yet I'm glad that I did the X first because you really need to be somewhat fit to survive. As for Tony I will miss his corny jokes for the next couple of months but I'll see him soon enough.
These are just for fun :) He cracks me up!

I was so glad that my sister came over yesterday and I was able to make her a mug cake. It was my last 3 tbsp of flour which means no sinning for me for a while. Not to mention it is always nice to talk to another adult for a change. Speaking of my sister she also has an awesome blog! www.littleredbowtalk.blogspot.com You got to check her out!!! She is way hipper than I will ever be :)

These meatballs are from a cookbook called Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love To Eat. The only way to explain is Yummy to the infinity power! For those of you that are not familiar with paleo its pretty much eating like a caveman. Doesn't that sound like fun? Watch out and don't get hit in the head ladies! I made a little brown rice with this which is a paleo no-no but it was a tummy yes-yes. I also made a sauce with just soy sauce, sriracha, half a lime, garlic powder, powdered ginger. To that you could probably add a little peanut butter. To be Sunshine Sauce you have to find sunflower seed butter. I haven't gone to the Gluten-free store near me to see if they had any so I had to go without any butters. It was still super tasty.

My new goal for 2013 is my high school weight which was 119lbs. I am hoping to reach this by March. I want to maintain that weight until the end of the year, if not surpass that weightloss to get ready for our next baby.
