I lost 4.6 pounds. Normally I would be over the moon. I guess I just expected more. You know watching the Biggest Loser...I want double digits every week. Yes. I know it is not healthy. Yes. I know it all. But that is what I wish would happen. <BR> <BR> In reality, I am 14 pounds lighter than I was 2 weeks ago and it is amazing how your body really embraces the difference. You move a little quicker, you have mor... Sat, 2 Nov 2013 12:52:23 EST Detox Sucks... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5526022 So I probably should be writing a cheery, happy blog, but I am not in a happy place right now. So I weigh in with WW every Sunday and this past Sunday, I lost 9.2 pounds. On Sunday I was elated. On Sunday I was over the moon and pumped. Today...today I am grumpy. <BR> <BR> I wanted to eat out in a restaurant so bad tonight. I could literally taste it in my mouth. I even did this weird thing that I tend to do and drive in circles...trying to fight off the craving for a juicy, greasy burg... Mon, 28 Oct 2013 22:30:14 EST Highs Followed by Drama...DON'T HIT THE RED BUTTON!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5522331 My life...my life should be a sitcom. I know a lot of people may say that, but my friends will be the first to tell you that the most dramatic things happen to me. I promise. LOL! <BR> <BR> So last night, I received my official letter. I have been accepted into an MBA program at Alverno College where I received my undergrad. This has been 7 years in the making and one day...much like trying to get healthy, I decided to get up and just flippin' do it already. <BR> <BR> Well this awesome... Thu, 24 Oct 2013 13:27:13 EST Just Keep Swimming and Overcome Fear http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5520498 Today will be my 5th "Fear Factor" swim class. For my readers that assume that it some sort of cool class that teaches you how to dive with sharks or swim with jelly fish, you would be sorely disappointed. <BR> <BR> It is a class for people TERRIFIED <em>40</em> of the water. To help them over that fear and teach them how to swim. Now, I have been working on my water issues for awhile and will get in water willingly. However, I won't get into water that is higher than my chest and ... Tue, 22 Oct 2013 15:25:00 EST This Road Feels Sad and Familiar http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5500255 Sigh. Just sigh. <BR> <BR> Two years ago, I started a journey. I managed to lose 33lbs. And then it happened. I fell in love and fell into stretchy pants. Both were completely forgiving of my love of all things decedent. In fact, my BF is more overweight than I am with his own set of food issues. But together...for the past two years, we have indulged. Not in life...But in calorie laden road to an early death. <BR> <BR> I am not saying that I plan to cut off all indulgences. I pe... Mon, 30 Sep 2013 11:44:47 EST So.....Yeah....I worked out today. Can someone pass the oxygen? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3199676 So let us begin with two points: <BR> <BR> 1) I told my two friends about my blog....so they actually may read it. <BR> 2) I actually started a flipping blog....so now I feel obligated to put something in it. <BR> <BR> Those two things actually motivated me to work out today. So I can be accountable to the blog watchers. Hehe. <BR> <BR> Now some may say. Shona....you have to do it for you. Who cares who reads it. <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <BR> <BR> You know that saying... Wed, 5 May 2010 23:26:21 EST Today is the first day of.....Yeah I don't do Cliche. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3193763 So today I met a friend for lunch. Granted it was not the healthiest lunch (A large bowl of buffalo chicken soup, bread and a soda) but it was good. So immediately afterwards, I feel motivated. The sun is shining, I have on my fabulous new sun glasses and I have my MP3 player PUMPING! So I walk....and continue to walk. <BR> <BR> Yeah the first two blocks I felt alive...like I can conquer the world. YEAH! And then I saw it. <BR> The hill that I would have walk up to get back to work. If... Tue, 4 May 2010 13:20:49 EST
