Week 3: Paleo Travel...+Cheat Day

It is Monday (Tuesday...oops) and I am just sitting down to write my thoughts from the past week. This is because...Yes, I sometimes do have a life. I flew to Nashville for a wonderful wedding where I got to see many of my bestest friends. It was so much fun! Honestly, I thank God that I found such wonderful girls whom will always be a part of my life. I miss them already. Anywho, enough of the sappy stuff. Here is what went down this week...

Travel + Paleo is do-able. However, you need to plan ahead! Actually, I have a funny story from the airport...Literally the only thing I could seem to get Paleo at the airport was a burger. So of course I ordered and said NO bun & NO cheese and when he finished my burger he said "Your PALEO burger is ready!!" I just had to laugh...guess this whole thing is catching on! 

Really though you need to plan some things.  I brought snacks (bananas, almond butter, beef jerky) with me for the airport and breakfast at the hotel because I was not sure what they had. However, they provided bananas, eggs, hardboiled eggs, and some other fruit that I was able to eat. I DID take my cheat day on Saturday (hello, it's a wedding...give me some drinks!) This was great! I did not go overboard basically had alcohol and some cake. It was AWESOME! However, it felt good to get back on track the next day.
