I obviously have quite the collagen obsession lately. Yes, it’s a problem. But a good problem. I’m just constantly looking for new ways to get collagen in my diet. First it was coffee, then muffins, and now cookies. These cookies came out absolutely perfect the first time and they were pretty challenging to put down. Warning you now. I made them last week and I’m secretly hoping that my husband finished them off so I won’t have the temptation to come home to after a week of eating out for every.single.meal.
I just got back to Denver from Palm Springs last night and while I was there, I had dinner with the marketing director of La Quinta Resorts. She doesn’t eat paleo and I said nothing about collagen, but I did mention that she has amazing skin and she said it’s thanks to collagen. I feel like I never hear that from people outside of the paleo community so that was pretty rad. AND a great reminder why I continue to take collagen day after day! If you’re not on the collagen train yet, GET ON IT! Your older self will thank you someday!
Speaking of skin, I am so pumped to get another profractional treatment soon! I’ve done two deep treatments so far that left me questioning why the hell I did it on the first day, then SO FREAKING HAPPY by the sixth day. It’s quite an emotional rollercoaster. And what’s so cool with profractional is that it continues to work over time. Your skin is continuing to rebuild collagen up to six months later so lines, wrinkles, scarring and even dark spots are minimized! It’s the best. But since I tend to scare the sh*t out of my friends or any PaleOMG readers with my scary bloody face photos, I’m going to get a light profractional and show everyone that it doesn’t have to be that scary or extremely painful, and you can still get great results. I’m so excited! And in major need of it now since I’ve been traveling to sunny places nonstop lately and my dark spots are crushing it lately.
You guys, I’m so happy to be home. My poor little panda (meaning my French bulldog Jackson) has been sick since I’ve been out of town. My husband found him throwing up a pink foamy mixture all our living room rug then he kept trying to lie down everywhere and couldn’t get comfortable plus his heart was racing. So my husband decided to take him into the emergency vet (which is a big deal because my husband doesn’t throw everything out of proportion like I do) where he seemed to be completely fine as soon as they walked in. The doc gave him some anti-nausea medication and now he seems a little better and can eat solid food, thank God. But the rug is definitely ruined. I felt so bad for being gone for almost entire week, so I ended up sleeping on the couch with him last week and cuddled hard. Plus I changed my schedule around today so I could just hang out with him and pet him nonstop. I’m such an annoying dogmom. Speaking of, I need to go. I have a dog to pet.
