Day 11 (The #Paleo Challenge) #GoDW

So this was my birthday weekend and I allowed myself one free day on Saturday.  While I didn't worry about what I ate, surprisingly I didn't go "hog wild" on anything, and just really enjoyed myself.

Of course, the festivities did take it's toll on the scale on the 9th I weighed in at 196 lbs and this morning it was 200lbs.  But I'm not worried or fixated on it, as I know that it's sodium, water, etc. etc. And it will fall off eventually.

I'm happy to report that Sunday I bounced right back from the evening's debauchery   I ate well, didn't give in to potato chips, chocolate, etc that were all lying around the house the next day.

In fact my many wonderful friends gave me fitness related gifts (You all are the best!) so I spent most of Sunday putting them together, reading, etc. (Wrist weights, a Yoga ball chair, dehydrator, paleo cookbook, and more!)

Thank you to everyone for their love, support, and friendship.  My journey isn't something I do alone, but with the knowledge that you are with me cheering me on every step of the way.

So I'm back this week in my normal routine but with some news toys, new ideas, and a year wiser.
