Emotional Eating

Ya, its Shauna again.  I have not been in hiding or anything.  Just being horribly bad.  I have totally fallen into the "emotional eating" trap.  I just really and truly have not cared for the past two weeks.   Now I am thoroughly disgusted with...

enjoy vs endure

lori here yeah I have been doing nothing except trying to figure my life out... not such an easy task.... and so scary to boot.... this keeps going thru my head; Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured. cause that is how it feels right now,...

so I wish my only emotion right now was happiness, but of course that is the one I cannot muster up.... not giving any background, what's known is known.... but I am really upset, and I am not trying to be selfish.... I just know I made a mistake.  It...

Lori here, So I was looking around last night and I came across this book I have, 8 Minutes in the Morning...so I am going to try to use some of that knowledge - the book is a 28 day program so we'll we give it an honest effort.... Imagine the...

momentum

Day 8 - Shauna

Yes, its Monday, and yes, i am BACK ON TRACK.  My ugly slip on Saturday (which lasted the entire day, whoops) is now just a distant memory and I am cooking my eggs as we speak.  Back to the working out every evening and eating my 4 protein/fiber meals...

Day 6 - Shauna

UGH.........yeah, today was a bad day for eating on the homefront.  I woke up this morning to the smell of homemade pancakes, my favorite, so i thought "i'll just have one" which lead to 4.  Woops. Then we were out all day shopping (which by the...

Lori - Day 5

Okay I thought I was ready for this, but after a few days I can clearly see I need to become more organized and structured with a better plan in mind, perhaps one that is all written down. So my mini goal this weekend is to devise that plan and get it...

New Phone?

Hey, I am in the market for a new cell phone and have it narrowed down to 2. Either a Verizon Envy, or a Blackberry. Any input on either of the phones?

Day 4 - Shauna

I did another 5K on the treadmill tonight.  I feel great.  I added a little bit of carbs to my meal right before workout (1/4 cup of rice) with the chicken and green beans.  It really helped!  A shout out of thanks to my friend Kim urging me to add the...

Lori - Day 4

Well I have lost about 3lbs so that pleases me. No I have not worked out, and I want too, I guess I have done okay on the eating portion though. I'm in a bit of a stress dump at the moment so once this passes, I will feel happier and more motivated. My...

Day 3 - Shauna

Wellllllll, I found out today that this diet is NOT conducive to exercise.  I definitely need more carbs to work out!  I had all protein and vegetables today, no carbs, then decided to try and work out.  After 1 mile on the treadmill the room started...

Lori - Day 3

Wow finally a moment to blog.... So yes I am lori, I am also doing this crazy diet... yesterday was my fruit  day    and I was dying... I am not sure if it was a stomach flu or just the effects of all that fruit..... Last time we did this, I did not...

Day 2 - Shauna

Ugh, Im STARVING and its only 10:30.  SUCKS.  This weird ass diet that I am on, is a 11 day cycle.  You eat really structured meals for 11 days, and then you can blow out for the next 3, and then back on the cycle.  But today is FRUIT DAY.  Yes, I love...
