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 …

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 …

Will I break 300?

Good Morning Interwebz…. OK so it’s not morning at all.. but rather afternoon… Anyway Hi! This week I will begin my transition to food! To say I’m excited would be an understatement. I am SO ready to have something other than a chocolate shake in me lol. These past 12 weeks have been a test …

Pre-2014 ramblings

I don’t make New Years resolutions…. so you won’t find one here. With that said however, I’d like to take a moment to re-cap 2013, and what I hope 2014 will bring. 2013 was a roller-coaster of emotion. I’m not entirely sure how I made it to today in one piece, but here I am, …

Waiting for The Call

Very soon now, I will be getting a call… this call will in fact change my life. You see I’ve jumped through all the hoops I have to jump through, and the only step left is to wait for the call placing me in a group for the weight loss clinic. The way it’s looking …

Times are Changing

I am fat. I am fat… I… Am… Fat. It’s a fact of life, that I’m coming to terms with slowly. Don’t worry, coming to terms with, does not mean I’m accepting it as my lot in life, I’m just slowly being able to drop the veil that kept me in denial for years. I …
