Brain Dump

As an artist, I feel this need to create. It’s pretty strong, and I’m constantly inspired or feel the urge to tackle one of my 1000000000’s of ideas. The problem is my ol’ pal anxiety freaks whenever I start because OMG Shannon you’ve worked today, AND did dishes.. shit girl that’s just way too much, …

Panic and Pictures

Mike and I had our engagement shoot a few weeks back, and though in hindsight I’m learning to see the good, in the moment, it was pure hell. Not because our photographer was bad, she is AMAZING, and not because it was horrible weather, it was a bit nippy, but that meant no sweating so …

Making Changes

OK.. so first of all, let me start this with saying there will be no “New Year, New Me” BS. I don’t believe in New Years Resolutions, and so I never make any. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get down to brass tacks. 1) I am full time now, which means it …

My scale is a jerk…

Oh yeah, I’m going there… my scale.. is a JERK man. OK OK I know that muscle weighs more than fat… and I also know that as a woman I can fluctuate about 10 lbs just from water retention.. But still…. been doing SO good lately, fighting the urges to binge, doing my best to …

PHAT

So we all know I’m fat… or Phat… either way I am not a tiny person. In the past this blog has primarily been about showcasing my road to “thindome”, but you know what… I don’t think I will ever get there, and that’s OK. Here’s why. I’ve come to realize that the size of …

I deserve to be happy ;)

Hello again! Over the past week, I have been repeating a mantra to myself as often as I’ve needed it (…. Sooooooooo it pretty much runs on loop in the background of my mind 24/7 lol).. I tweaked it from the last blog post.. it is now : I deserve to be happy, I deserve …

The end of week 1

I have officially made it past week 1….. ok so I have one more shake left, but I’ll be having it as soon as this post is over, so I’m still calling it official. Looking back, this week was pretty brutal. Cravings through the roof, emotional roller coaster, less energy than I’m used to… it …

Third time’s the charm?

I had my doctor’s appointment today to check up on how things are going. Good news? I’m healthy again!… Ever better news? I was cleared, and encouraged, to go for another full round of shakes! I know some are against, and some are for, and there are probably some who straddled the line right along …

Curves

This post is aptly named for a number of reasons… the main one (this time) being that I signed up for Curves today.. It is a female only gym close to my house, and I liked the atmosphere so I’m hoping it will help me (especially in the upcoming winter months) to get more active. …

Normalize It…

If you’ve been following my blog, FB, or just have the misfortune of being around me in person on a regular basis… you’ll probably remember awhile ago (Pokes The Day My Brain Broke ) I was having some major issues with food.  My body would go into a panic when I was around food, my …
