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, …

Progress?

Alright so here’s the scoop. Since my last post I have managed to lose 2 lbs. It’s not a miracle, but it’s what I did, and I did it all by myself. But that’s not the progress that I want to talk about. The progress is that (and I may be crazy) I think the …

Post Birthday Update!

Well, it’s official.. I am 31 years old, and so far… it’s been pretty epic! OK so here’s the scoop, I have a top secret project under way, and once I have all the ducks lined up in a nice row I will be shouting it to the rooftops! Seriously y’all, I’m crazy excited and …

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 …

Day Four… no clever rhyme today lol

I’ve managed pretty well through another day, still hungry but I think it’s a little better than it was yesterday. All signs point towards my slipping into ketosis finally.. with any luck it’ll be fairly smooth sailing by the weekend. *knock wood*. 4 days down, 86 to go… oy vey. Can I just say that …

Day two, went as well as it could

Let me start off by saying this time around feels nothing like it did the second time around. At least not so far *Knock Wood*… I am hungry yes, and it’s uncomfortable and frustrating and I’m cranky as all heck…. but I don’t feel the drain that I did last time, nor do I feel …
