Thursday Day 8!!

Rock On!!
Ok today is day 8 of my Paleo Challenge..the first week is gone and I managed to stay in the positive for points..This style of eating is a lot of work..I am constantly planning my meals , snacks and whatever else I might want to eat...I think the hardest thing I have had to give up is my Peanut Butter...I am still going to a trainer twice a week and then hitting the gym myself for the remainder.. I have seen results but do not think that this is the type of life style I will keep I love to go to the gym but eating this way is for the bears...( meat and berries) Now that is not to say that this is not for someone else just not me..I may try 70/30 and see how that works out.. After my 30 days I might post some before and after pics..My big goal was to lose 70-100 lbs...Now onto the real reason you have stopped by and that is to see a card..The Image I used is a Kenny K from Whimsy..Can be purchased from One Crazy Stamper just click on this link .. As well as any of the Copics or Prisma Pencils....I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink..The Image is Groovy Dude..

Happy Valentines Day!!

Today is Valentine's DAy a day of love!!!
