Paleo...? Really?!

Hi!  Welcome to my blog!

My name is Amy and I am a born and raised Utahn.  I currently live just north of Salt Lake City and work in the city itself.  I am a full time Medical Secretary to 2 prominent pediatric eye doctors who keep me busy and on my toes.  I am the mother to 2 fur-babies, and don't try to tell me differently.  I am a wife to (seriously) my best friend in this world.  I am a fitness enthusiast.  I. am. busy.

So why paleo???

My love, my life - my biggest support
About two years ago, I started sleeping... a lot.  My fatigue got so bad that sometimes I would come home from work, eat dinner, and then go to sleep, not waking up until the next morning only to go back to work.  I was barely even functioning while at the office.  This way of life started to make me feel very depressed.  I went to the doctor and found out I have a vitamin D deficiency, but supplementation didn't really make me feel that different.  After about a year and a half of getting no results coupled with some digestive issues for my hubby, I decided to take our well-being into my own hands.

I started doing a lot of research about different diets and stumbled onto the paleo diet because of a desire I already had to eat real food.  The more I read, the more convinced I became that I needed to try this out for the both of us.  We haven't been doing it that long, but the effects have been astounding.  I can now go a full 17-18 hours without feeling like I will pass out any second from exhaustion.  Justin's stomach also started to feel a lot better within days of cutting out grains, legumes, sugar, and dairy.  We have so far been maintaining the paleo lifestyle at 90+%.

So why should you listen to me??? Well, if you are interested at all in the paleo diet or gluten, sugar, dairy intolerant, I promise to provide you with some recipes.  The other reason is because I am like you.  A lot of the blogs I follow that are paleo, the people that write them seem to have these amazing lifestyles and a whole lot of time to make food, exercise, and the money to maintain it all.  I have none of those things.  Hopefully, my tips and tricks can help you save some time and money while achieving the things you want to achieve.
