I don’t think I have an obsessive side this week. Not sure why. It’s disappointing. I do want a donut though. Maybe I should look into Multiply Delicious paleo donut recipe. I love her. She’s a genius. Donuts are just gorgeous. I miss the days I used to eat a dozen donuts at my swim meet while snacking on nerds and nachos. Ok, not really. I slightly hate my mother for letting me ever consume that crap. Just kidding mom, I don’t hate you. I know I was a demon child.

Wow, that was off track. And now I’m salivating. What a gross word.

Anyways. So instead of obsessing over my obsessions, let’s chat about my week.

  1. The CrossFit Open began. The first wod is 7 minutes of burpees. Burpees are burpees. They always suck. No matter what. But the thing that actually sucks about this wod is that EVERYONE is posting about it on their Facebook status. Everyone. I get it people, you hate burpees. F*ck burpees. Buck furpees. I get it. You can stop facebooking it. I can’t even log on to Facebook without seeing the word ‘burpees’ over 67 times. Kind of like this sentence.
  2. I’ve decided that I really want the baby hair on the top of my head to grow. COME ON HAIR. You’re not a child. Stop acting like one.
  3. I made enchiladas out of sweet potatoes. Genius. And effing delicious. Don’t worry, the recipe will be on the blog next week. The picture kind of sucks though, but trust me, totally worth making. You’ll love life. And me. Then you’ll ask me out on a date, if you are a male, and SINGLE.
  4. This is some cool sh*t. I was very lucky to watch a ton of my athletes do a 30 day paleo challenge and absolutely rock it. Not only did everyone lose weight, but EVERYONE lost inches AND took time off their ‘Jackie’ wod. Sooooo sooooo cool. To change your body in just 30 days is pretty unbelievable. And to see everyone loving how they feel and wanting to stick with eating paleo is music to my ears. CrossFit Broadway, you’re amazing. So incredibly proud of all of you!
  5. I cut myself using a mandoline. Then got orange juices in it. I hate how slowly my brain works at times. Especially when knives are involved.
  6. I haven’t eaten chocolate in almost a week. I haven’t even missed it. What’s that about? I thought I would dream about it. I did make sticky apples bars though. Guess you’ll have to check back next week for that recipe. BOOM.
  7. I spent a lot of time with my roommates. They are both so amazing. And single. A house of 3 single ladies. How much fun is that?! OMGfun.
dancin, Dancin, DANCIN. good thing that shirt was see through. waaaay to be classy JB.

Guess what today is?! One of my best friend’s bday!! My lovely Sarah is 25 today and looking adorable as ever. Sarah may love food as much as I do so obviously, we have a deep connection. Tonight we will be celebrating with hopefully some dancing. Want to see us before the Ke$ha concert last year? That included a lot of dancing. And looking much messier than this picture portrays.


dammmmn hoe dresses for a Ke$ha concert. now that’s classy. we were a year younger. so naive.


Thanks for reading this over the top random post! kthanksbye.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’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. I would have to say that the acquisition of your new favorite blog stalker (that’d be me in case you weren’t paying attention) cured you of your obsessive side for the week…i mean honestly, Ghostrider and rants about cats will obviously fix any OCD tendencies. I’m a licensed health care professional, i know these things. If the enchiladas are half as good as those damn crackberry muffins, I might even buy you dinner.

  2. OK, when I grow up, I want your arms, Juli!!! They totally rock!
    I’m with you on the mandoline, thing….cut myself slicing lemons, then a couple years later, slicing sweet potatoes….. I’m seriously cut off from it!

  3. Ha! I was a swimmer too and i remember eating that same crap!!! LOL. What were we thinking?!?!?

    Also, just this past october i cut my thumb using a mandolin slicer…took of the corner of my right hand thumb…so not good and i still have some nerve sensitivity in it. Pretty sure i should have a warning pasted on me saying i’m no good at using knives and other sharp objects…go me!

  4. I’m thinking about trying to go like maybeee a day without chocolate… is it hard? I haven’t not eaten it in some form in probably months and I don’t like having an addiction so I’m trying to break it. Anyways, hope the open workout goes well for you! Im not signed up but randomly yesterday I decided to do a 7 minute burpee (sorry I said it) challenge on my own, then later that day I found out it was the open WOD- weird!

  5. I feel your pain on the mandoline, Juli. I sliced my finger open on the food processor blade last week…had to get stitches and everything. It pretty much sucked, but the stitches do make me look like a bad ass.

    Just wanted to say I LOVE your blog and am excited I found it. I’m right in the middle of a Whole30 and your recipes have been amazing. I had the Pesto Chicken Pasta last night and it was delicious. Now I’m eagerly waiting for the enchilada recipe next week!

    Thanks for letting us peep into your life and for sharing your wonderful food – you’re awesome!!!


  6. You cut yourself on your mandolin too?! Luckily eating clean allows for quicker healing, as I only had soreness for about 24 hours and it’s closing up quickly. 6 months ago this would have hurt for a while…

    And I’m looking forward to the sweet potato enchilada recipe. I can’t ask you out, but I will say thanks in advance!

  7. Bought a mandoline last week and promptly sliced my finger. Ouch. Add that to the cracks in my fingers that never heal in the winter. Love your blog. I’m 55 days into paleo. Going to add back dark chocolate next month…

  8. So, I’ve only done CrossFit like twice in my life, and one of my friends dragged me along with her this morning, after my spin class, promising me it would “be easy” because it was “just an intro class”. Lucky for me the trainers were INSANE and made me do the 7 minute burpee challenge. Let’s say I’m not in a hurry to go back anytime soon 🙂

  9. So how many did you do???? Burpees suck. I did one this morning just to be a part of the whole thing. It sucked. Then, I rowed, which sucked even more…

  10. I love your blogging! Just discovered this site not too long ago and find myself cracking up! I would rather read this than work, so I do. 🙂 So let me be the first to say I love burpees! I love them so much that I voluntarily did them yesterday for 7 minutes instead of the posted WOD. Turns out, I only love the first 10, then something goes terribly wrong! I thought I loved them? Love is too strong of a word. Maybe it is that I don’t hate them if it is under 50. Ya, that is probably it.

  11. Holy crap, both of those recipes sound AMAZING. & those dresses, hoe-ish or not, are hot! I wish I had your tan!! Pretty sure I’m gonna go make those Paleo doughnuts right now…oh, wait. I don’t have a doughnut pan. Crap. Cool top pic, btw.

    1. WOD is workout of the day. And a burpee is an awful movement of getting your body all the way on the ground in lying position then jumping yourself up. Just google ‘crossfit burpee’!

  12. 1. I love sweet potatoes
    2. I love enchiladas
    3. I love to cook and I love Crossfit
    4. I cannot wait to see that recipe because this is my new go-to spot for every meal of the day
    5. I am single
    6. How about that date?

    1. I like you, you make lists. Numbered lists are legit. I don’t know if I can date someone via the internet though. Until I have to turn to internet dating sites…that’s next month though

  13. i noticed you’ve been asked out thrice (i heard that word used today and was determined to use it myself) just in the comments to this post.
    note to self: post pictures of myself dancing on my blog…
    seriously jb, you rock. i love reading your blog and you’re an AMAZING cook. and athlete. thanks for sharing…

    1. Lol it’s easy to have courage over the internet. Will you go on a date with me Katie!? Boom. Thanks so much for checking out my blog AND commenting, you are awesome!

  14. I cut my little toe today. I had just done the dishes and a knife fell from the dishes rack on to my toe. I’m serious! Like, what are the chances of that? 1 in 1,000? I did 12.1 WOD too. I’m not saying the ‘B’ word! haha. I made your egg-to-go muffins though and they’re real yum. Thanks for the laughs and the good food! Jules from Sydney, Australia!

  15. I am so amped for the sweet potato enchiladas!! My husband and I are scraping the bottoms of our bowls after just finishing your Paleo Creamy Chicken Chili (seconds, I might add). Hmmm…so good.

    You are a genius.

    Congrats on 113 burpees! Very strong! Best of luck in the Open!

  16. Julie….I’m sending you a donut pan! You don’t have one? You so need one! 🙂 If anything it will be your reward for 113 burpees! Wow! You are my idol!

  17. Your blog posts flippin’ crack me up. Your chocolate obsession is about as bad as my Reese’s addiction. I get all jolly just thinking about them…haha. I’m not one to ask someone out over the internet, so I’m flying out to Colorado to ask you out on a date. I’m probably a year or two younger, though. Dangit. Anyways, single problem solved. You’re welcome.

    1. Lol jolly. I like that. That would be a long ways to travel just to ask someone out on a date. And I’m not really good at the whole dating thing. I can usually out eat my date and that’s intimidating to most.

      1. Out eat? Pleassse. Challenge accepted haha. However, I don’t find it intimidating that a girl will actually eat more than half a breadstick and a tiny salad (don’t ask me why I picked those two things…I guess I’m thinking of Olive Garden). Oh, and I’m not good at the whole dating dealio either…so it is quite all right. It’s a curse, I suppose.

  18. I’m not sure I understand the difference between ‘reading the blog’ and ‘reading random samples’ since in the end, you’re visiting the PaleOMG site and reading posts. However, I do get that everyone’s entitled to their own opinion.

    Juli, I (along with many others) love your humor, recipes, and good attitude. I’ve tried two of your recipes now and they’re delicious! The only help needed is to get your next post up ASAP. 🙂

  19. Juli,
    Your writing is amazing! I love the constant stream of conscience, really Falkner like! Keep up the great work, keep the reciepes coming, and keep rocking the game WOD’s. I just hit my 1 year mark with CrossFit and primal and will never look back to my 315# days. My wife loves the new me! You can thank Damon for turning me on to PaleOMG!

    1. That’s freaking awesome Bruce, keep up the good work! And thank you so so much for your kind words, you have no idea how much it means to me when I hear something like that 🙂

  20. I cuz myself crazy bad on a mandolin slicer once!! Right on my pinky, that bitch bled like crazy. Though I kept telling everyone “At least my finger chunk stuck to the mandolin!! I still got to eat my food!”
