Thumbs Up Monday

Hello blogging friends!  It's the start of a brand new week, which means it's Thumbs Up Monday! 

I'm giving a thumb up to ME!  Yes, that's right, ME!  I hardly ever give credit to myself for my accomplishments, but today, I'm very proud of myself. 

I have been on my Paleo Diet (at least my version of it) for a full week.  Basically, I have eaten nothing but meat, veggies and fruit.  I have not had anything with any added sugar or anything "processed".  Do you know how hard that is????  I have two young children who love to eat chips, cookies, fruit snacks, granola bars, candy bars, bread, etc., so my house is full of this stuff.  Well, this momma did not stray at all this week - not one cookie, piece of bread, bite of Mac-N-Cheese - NADA!!  I totally focused on the prize - winning the 2 weight loss competitions I'm in.  I also went to Jazzercise class 3 times this past week.  That is an accomplishment too!  Adding the third day is so hard for me - I love sleeping in on the weekends - and if I go to Jazzercise - I don't get to.   

All of my hard work paid off.  I am excited to report that I lost 4 lbs. this week and came in 1st place in our weekly weigh in!! I am beyond happy with the results!  Yay me!!

What are you giving a Thumb Up to this week?
