Weekend Recap & Last Day of the Paleo Challenge



Monday rolled around pretty quickly but my weekend was great, how was yours??

My mom was so kind Friday night and let Marc and I go out for dinner! We chose to go to Barcelona! In case you have never been, Barcelona is a Spanish Tapas Wine Bar. We absolutely love it there!


This restaurant has helped me expand my palate and try new foods & flavors! Plus it makes for a great date night.

Marc and I ordered several tapas… Albondigas (meatballs), spinach & chickpea casserole, broccoli rabe with garlic & oil, shrimp with salsa verde, beet salad, sliders, & shishitto peppers! It sounds like a lot but they are small plates.

My favorite was the spinach casserole and the meatballs. The peppers were good but soo spicy! I like spice but not when I can’t think or speak.. JK

It was a perfect date night and seriously an hour out feels like an eternity!!

Saturday morning Marc grabbed us some Dunkin coffees, we loaded up the car and headed to Rhode Island. I always get excited for RI because its a mini vacay and we get to see family.


In the afternoon my brother in law took some AMAZING pictures of Ava for us. I am not really good at taking photos so it was so nice of him to snap some pics. This is a sneak peak.

We had some quality time & good food! Marc’s dad is a great cook and always makes delicious meals for us. I was too hungry so I didn’t snap a picture, but for lunch we had grilled salmon over an italian salad. Yum. Dinner was takeout from The Cove Restaurant… I had a blackened chicken sandwich (No Bun) and veggies


It was definitely hard doing Paleo on the go and at my in-laws but I made it work! Today is the last day of the challenge and I have decided to continue with an 80/20 format. Paleo 80% of the time ;) I have a lot to share about my experience!

When we got back Sunday we unpacked and enjoyed watching some football at my parents. The Patriots got their first win!


Cooper could not keep his eyes open for the game!!


I also got in a speedy workout while watching the Patriots. I did a bodyweight circuit that I will share with you tomorrow!

I hope you all have a great day!

  1. That restaurant sounds delicious! I wish we had a some more authentic Tapas places to try around here. We thought we did but after going to Barcelona realized how urbanized they were. That’s the way it goes in California I guess! Glad you enjoyed your Paleo challenge and are sticking with it 80/20. I’d say I eat more primal than strict Paleo right now since I allow myself some dairy from time to time. It works for me most the time as long as I don’t over do it. I’m thinking of doing the Whole 30 though in a few weeks just to get back on track.

    • Barcelona is soo good when you don’t know what you are in the mood to eat because you can just get a bunch of tapas and share everything :) We ordered way too many last time but I loved having leftovers.
