I’m Bringing Sexy Back!

November 13, 2013  |  Food, Princess Paleo  |  Share

The title says it all. I’m finally doing something for me. Yes I’m so called “skinny” but if you asked me to run a mile. My heart would combust. I would never say that I let myself go after having kids but I would admit that I didn’t make time to actually be fit. What I mean by fit (my standards) is someone that could lift their own body weight if needed to climb over a fence or maybe get a few pull ups in. Or maybe if someone tried to harm me that I could sort of defend myself. I am a former athlete and it sickens me the way that I have “let myself go.” I’m trying really hard to tell myself that I’m not 16 anymore & that I need to re-establish those neuropath- ways of muscle memory. I’m just “a little” uncoordinated at times. I’m starting my second...

Book Review: Primal Moms Look Good Naked

Book Review: Primal Moms Look Good Naked

Let’s just be honest here. I have never read one Primal/ Paleo book before. Only cookbooks J So when Peggy sent me a complimentary copy I was super excited! The structure of the book, with it’s bold headlines and easy to read, concise paragraphs are any readers dream come true. Peggy has researched & referenced so many books & websites and placed them into one complete book. I just enjoyed reading the book from cover to cover. The book is not only about pregnancy let’s just get that question out of the way. She speaks about what it truly means to be a beautiful primal woman. This requires nutritional based food,  plenty exercise and reduction of stress. Although, much Emphasis on Food. The most exciting facts for me since I have already had my children are about collagen, stretch marks, cellulite, hormones, varicose veins, healthy hair, abdominal muscles, and saggy...

Breastfeeding & Weight Loss

Breastfeeding & Weight Loss

My youngest is 10 months old now! I cannot believe that time has flown by so quickly! My blog has been very quiet and I’ve been thinking about this topic for the last three months now but just haven’t made the time to actually post my thoughts. Again, I’m not a Nutritionist, Doctor, etc. in any way, shape or form, but just a second time mother that’s completely Paleo this time around.  I love my Paleo treats, but never cheat with gluten or refined sugars. Lately, I’ve had tons of compliments or ass backward comments on my weight loss. I get people saying how great I look or asking how much I weigh because I guess…in their eyes… I’m too skinny. My energy level, drive, skin and hair have never looked so good …actually! That’s how I measure healthy. I’m not exercising right now…I wish I had the time and finances...

My Experience with Breastfeeding.

My Experience with Breastfeeding.

After some long, drawn out thought- yeah I know it’s been a while since my last blog post. I just have so much to say that I end up not saying anything at all…I know. It doesn’t make sense. Especially for those of you that have known me since high school. A significant part of being a mother is breastfeeding. I breastfed Nolan, our oldest son until he was 14 months. Yeah. Huge commitment.  I plan on doing the same for Beckett. Nolan was 9lbs 6oz when he was born. Yep BIG BOY! He latched on perfect and as a first time mother I thought…wow! This is perfect! Everything should just kick in as nature intended it to. Yeah…no. After three days of colostrum. Nolan was starving and crying for milk. I called the lactation consultant that our doula suggested. The consultant had me pump just to see what exactly was coming...

Conception.

Conception.

Those of you that are following our blog read about my nutrition during each of my pregnancies. I should have started from the beginning. Conception. Far too many of my friends & acquaintances have had trouble conceiving a child. Conception can be an ugly & destroying word. I also experienced this pain & at times felt anger. Before becoming pregnant with Nolan my first child – Kyle and I had been “trying” for 7 months or so. During this time it felt like I would never get pregnant. I started taking pre-natal vitamins to have high volumes of folic acid in my diet and I was also taking tons of fish oil. I was charting my cycle and taking my basal temperature every morning. Ehh! What a pain that was! I was going to an acupuncturist twice a week for ovarian pain as well. I had consistently battled ovarian cysts since...

Up until now the only member of our family that has contributed to this site has been me. (Kyle) Until now. I am so happy that my wife has finally decided to share her experiences with all of you. She is going to start off talking about her pregnancies and we will see where it goes from there. Welcome Jamie, The Princess Paleo. For over a year now I have been contemplating on writing a blog of my own. Specifically, about my three pregnancies.  For those of you that know me personally-Yes I said three pregnancies and I only have two children. I have no idea if my pregnancies and children are actually different because of the change of my nutrition or just because no two pregnancies are alike. I’ll wonder this for the rest of my life and possibly feel utter gut wrenching guilt for the rest of my life. I...
