I felt a bit less addicted to things this week. Maybe it’s because I was less emotional, therefore not having the f*cked up mindspace to search for things to fill those voids. Not sure that made sense, but it did to me. I did feel a bit of an addiction to the chocolate coconut bark that I made this week. That was pretty epic. Thankfully I have girlfriends that will help me consume most of that. It always makes you feel better as a person when your friends will eat with you. That’s why I could never have weirdly skinny friends. Friends who barely eat are sh*tty friends. Period.

But I did have some exciting new things happen.

  1. I learned that my legs are not really in the mood to work this week. Meaning that every time I prepare myself for an air squat, I want to die. Ok, die is really exaggerating, but it takes me a while to even get in a squatting position. Thank god we have high toilets here. Life would suck with toilets on the ground.
  2. I also have teamed up a little bit with The New Primal. That’s the company I was telling you about the other day that sells jerky, dried fruit, and nut packets…they fit in your pocket, the the name Pocket Paleo. Makes sense. Not for me, since I don’t even remember what it’s like to have pockets, but I have a purse. A huge purse to be exact. I love them. They are saving my life between coaching classes. And if you use the PaleOMG code, you get 10% off your order!! Check them out!!
  3. I found out that when you bake sweet potatoes for about an hour, they become really soft. Like OMGSOFT. No need to even mash them. Just bake them for a disgusting amount of time then use some muscle to chuck them into a bowl and you have instant mashed sweet potatoes. I’m a genius.
  4. I remembered how much I LOVE the movie ‘Something Borrowed’. Dear.Lord. I love that movie. It makes me kinda, sorta, maybe believe in love. And it makes me want to read the book, ‘Something Blue.’ I probably won’t. Just being realistic. Goals though, it all starts with goals.
  5. I still hate olives. But I love sea side cheddar. Freaking love bro. Thank god for Whole Foods samples.
  6. When I actually drink water during the day, I only have to pee like 26 times a day. Thank god peeing is so convenient when I’m coaching.
  7. I saw pee in a beer mug in the alley. Yep, pee. It could be beer, but who would leave behind beer. I’m grossed out.
  8. I got a new camera. Nope, I was GIVEN a new camera by my amazing web programmer Peter. He had one lying around and sent it to me so my pictures would stop sucking ass. Now maybe you’ll have something to look forward to when you check out my site!! Let’s all thank Peter together!! THANK YOU PETER!
  9. I figured out I don’t like coffee in my butt crack. FYI, don’t leave coffee mugs filled with coffee sitting on your couch. #Badidea.
  10. Best for last. Guess what happened today? Something great. I now have PaleOMG women’s shirts available for purchase. Well, not me, but my good friend’s at Renegade Fitness have them ready for you to check out. You see, my good friend Tom and the other owner’s of Renegade Fitness, Greg and Orion, asked if I would be interested in having them sell PaleOMG shirts on their website. Sh*t yeah I said yes!! So if you are interested in purchasing a white PaleOMG tank top or black PaleOMG tshirt, check out their site. Sorry guys, no mens shirts at this time. I know you were totally wanting to sport a PaleOMG shirt around. But hey, if you do, you should leave a comment so I know! Or just buy a women’s tank. Hey, we don’t discriminate! Soon I will have a permanent link on my page, just you wait ๐Ÿ™‚

Wanna see what they look like?! The great hand of Jason took these pictures. So they are shaky. Don’t judge. Okcoolthanksbye.

Oh look at that white tank top go
that’s my back side
Oooo I got more sass in this picture-too bad Jas obviously does not have a steady hand
oh hey second back side shot
CF Broadway + PaleOMG unite. Jake looks comfortable. I’m obviously extremely light

Oh, Hi! Iโ€™m Juli.

Iโ€™m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you donโ€™t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Forever-cooked sweet potatoes are the best! I cut mine in half, smear the cut half with coconut oil and bake them face down for a good hour or sometimes even a little more. The coconut oil carmelizes and the things are SOOOOO soft. Redonkulously good!

    Love the shirts!

  2. I had a friend tell me after you cook the sweet potato fries to drizzle coconut cream over it-YUM!

    Love all your posts ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Ummm Jessilee….I read your post then instantly did that today. Genius. I mixed it like you would with mashed potatoes and gravy and added just a sprinkle of salt. faaaantastic!

  3. Love your posts! Dying to check out The New Primal, but their website is Flash-based so I can’t get there from my iPad. ๐Ÿ™

  4. I love starting my day out with good humor! You rock, as always! Thanks for starting my day out on the bright side, especially since I only got a whopping 5 hrs of sleep! TGIF, can’t wait to go home and rest! Hope you have an awesome weekend!

  5. oooo ooo! any black tank tops coming (because I will mercilessly destroy a white one in about 3 seconds)?? would love one =)

  6. Love the shirts! Side note: Wish Orion had these at CFLW yesterday. Was DYING in my stupid effing long sleeve running shirt (WTF WAS I THINKING? Not sure.) and had to stop mid WOD to buy a tshirt. Tried to find something not too conspicuous and wound up with a renegade fitness shirt that says something about “training elite athletes”on the back. Which I am not. And had no idea it said that til I was home. Right. Wont be wearing that shirt for at least ten months til I’m semi-decent. But will sport one of yours in the meantime. U go with the new cute merch!

  7. Love the shirts! I’ve only been reading your site for about a month and am totally addicted! Your recipes are bomb-diggity delicious! Plus. You crack me up.

  8. ah, okay, so don’t drink coffee and leave it ‘laying’ around! good to know ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Can I get a paleomg shirt even though I’m not a strict paleo eater?

  9. Love the shirts!! Totally getting one, but you’re out of Small in the tank…what size are you wearing in the pictures? I might get a black T-shirt, too. They’re both super cute!

  10. The New Primal pocket paleo packs are THE BEST. perfect after a WOD for a girl that is always on the go like me! They give me that extra ‘umph’ to get through my crossfit and dance fixes every week.

  11. You say that no one sits around waiting to read your blog…. well Im @ work on a Saturday and Im waiting around for a post!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I also might add its one of the first things I do when I come into work in the morning @ 8 AM…. Hows that for borderline obsessed. Anyways, since Im sitting at work I thought I’d take the time to comment on how much I enjoy your blog, like-minded sarcasm – Or should I say wit?, our equal love of food – Paleo style of course – and nut butters… and Im on month two of crossfit, the obsession there is building as well. Thanks for all the recipes, info, and laughs you’ve brought to my days!

    1. haha Sorry Dana, I rarely post on weekends because I’m always out and about or making recipes for the next week! I really appreciate your support though, you are freaking awesome!! Good luck with your CF path, you’re definitely in for a new addiction!

  12. hi! what size shirt are you wearing in the photos? i really want to get the tank but not sure what size i would need to get. thanks! ps: i love your blog! your rant on how people comment on your food choices was great. i can definitely relate. thanks!

    1. okay so i just read some of the comments and saw you’re wearing a medium…probably should have read the posts before i posted…anyway…still love the blog ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. HellOOOOOO,

    Just passively mentioning something like
    ” chocolate coconut bark” !?!?!? You can’t just leave us hanging here. It doesn’t search on your site. And now I WANT SOME!!


    In the meantime, I’m going to make something up … I’ll let you know how it goes.

    Love your site and now I ‘need’ another stupid shirt! Thanks a lot.

      1. Let’s just say I only consider something a full failure if I have to throw part of it away…. ie. me or one of the other 3 carnivores at my house don’t eat it. I’m not opposed to bribery or threats… I don’t like failure.

        My “make something up” for chocolate coconut bark will probably be consumed. Mine was attempting chocolate coconut almond…. delight. …. I’m not posting the recipe and I’m looking forward to your post. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Rhonda–I get my coconut oil from Tropical Traditions! I LOVE their stuff! There is a link to the right under products I love! Check them out!

  14. Wow, the small sold out already….who cares, I’m not a small and so glad to see that you aren’t either. Wait, you look really lean and fit, maybe I’m too fat for a medium! I can’t help I’m short and thick waisted! Well, I’m working on it anyway, now I will look super cool, while trying to find a CF gym I like! Do you think your shirt will help me look “legit?” ๐Ÿ™‚ I ordered a Medium! Can’t wait to get it.

  15. Man, I wish I had the boobs to make the shirt look that good! lol Though, that reminds me of that post you had a few weeks ago about crazy chicks with all the sh*t guys think/say about insecure women. So, I mean, YEA! I’d rock this shirt with my Itty-Bitty-t*tty-Committee Chair pin right around the strap. Will definitely need a small, though… ๐Ÿ˜›

  16. Juli, is it possible to email you? I have questions about how you maintain your site, where it’s hosted, etc. You have some features that I really want on mine but don’t have time to program myself.

  17. Sooo excited you have tank tops and shirts now! Definitely need to get the tank made up in black though… I’m brutal to white clothes! Will be ordering a white tank regardless. Thanks for putting the wording on the bottom of the back of the tanks/shirts! Those of us with longer hair like to see that!!! Don’t you just hate when there’s a shirt with a super cute saying or design on the upper portion of the back of the shirt and nobody ever gets to see it because your hair normally covers it up?!? Just sayin… ๐Ÿ™‚ LOVE the blog and most definitely the recipes! Yours is the site I go to first when looking for recipes and meal ideas… it’s almost disturbing how much I look forward to a new post here! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. That is absolutely awesome Rebecca!! Glad I’m your go-to!! We just ordered black tanks so they will be in next week!!!! Thanks so much for you support :):)
