I eat hamburgers, fries and cupcakes

So this weekend I saw my friend Murph kick super duper ass in women's professional tackle football. I think that is what it is called. It was awesome. I would NEVER want to do this - I would rather not get hit and dragged and stomped on, but good gracious - more power to you Murph - you were awesome to watch. Murph did the stomping and dragging - the poor visiting team didn't stand a chance. I think they won 49 - 0. I don't know much about football, but I know that was a serious win.

Anywho - shout out to Murph and her teammates at

After watching Murph kick ass, we went to Chili's. I love burgers at Chili's. Reminds me of home for some reason. I ordered myself the Shiner Bock BBQ burger - it had cheese and onion strings and BBQ sauce and IT WAS AWESOME. I also had fries. And this my friends, is called living. I did not toil over how "bad" this food was or how so not paleo it was, I just ate it. Because I wanted to and I feel fine doing so in moderation. This last part is a learning process. I don't do moderation. I never have. In anything. Go big or go home. So moderation in my diet is something new I need to figure out. Its slippery for me - because so easily I can slip back into bad habits. I've worked too hard to let that happen though. For this reason, and the fact that I feel a little lost without structure, I'm pretty sure I'm going to do another Whole30 type commitment soon.

Oh yeah, and a couple of days ago, I was out of town and found a CUPCAKE store. Oh yes. I did indeed eat cupcakes. And there wasn't even a baby or wedding anywhere. Cupcake eating with reckless abandon. OK, it wasn't that reckless - I had 4 baby cupcakes. Thats right, I said 4. Too many flavors to choose from (cookies and cream - had oreos in it, coconut, triple chocolate and red velvet) so I took one of each. And I ate them all. I had myself a little party and I was the only one invited. I have said this before and I will say it again, cupcakes are like little sugar angels, and everyone needs them in their lives. Until we meet again cupcake...


  1. You do have a way with words, Mo.

  2. Listen....reading the few blogs of yours that I have, have given me a hard kick in the ass...a much needed almost final one. Thank you. I need it...and I feel ya about the Chili's food..I work around and in it over 65 hours a day, and as a manager I can go back there and make my own delish burgers...this paleo thing you speak of, interesting...i must try it! Good luck and keep going! I wanna be like you...seriously...I wanna prove to the two people who I say 'Cheated' at weight loss and aren't doing anything positive with it, that it can be done thru hard work, determination, support, and sometimes falling off that wagon!
    Cheers to dusting our badass selves off and going for it!

  3. Aw Sara - thanks! You can do it girl. But don't do it to prove anything to anyone but yourself. Its gotta be about you! Re: Paleo, check my friends out at Whole9 ( and click on the Whole30 tab. DO IT!
