This weekend I am escaping! It is my oldest and bestest friend Robyn's 40th birthday and so tomorrow I am driving to Bristol to meet another best friend, Rachel, and staying 2 nights in a hotel with no children!
So how will paleo mum cope on a weekend away with the girls?
I am a little anxious actually. Meals don't worry me too much as I'm good at making paleo choices and working round a menu but snacking worries me. I graze a lot. I kind of eat all day, really. And this is difficult to do away from my well-stocked fridge and cupboards.
So, I have baked some paleo seed and coconut cookies and a paleo fruit cake, made with almond flour, to take so I can naughty snack without being too naughty. I am going to take bags of carrots and apples and bananas and a few hard-boiled eggs and I'm also going to pack my TRX bands so I can workout in the hotel room!
Now, whether or not any of this gets used is yet to be seen. I'll keep a little picture diary of what I eat (and drink) and whether or not I workout and we'll see how well I manage to stay focused.
I'm feeling positive as I feel this is the way I eat now, it doesn't seem difficult or a chore or complicated. it's just the way I am.
I don't drink alcohol at all normally unless I go out, and often then I won't drink either but if I know anything at all about Robyn and Rachel (and I have known them 40 years and 29 years respectively) I think a few tequilas may be slammed! But if you can't do that when you're with best friends and no kids, when can you do it?
I'll keep you posted...
