Road blocks

Originally uploaded by Part Time Mom.
After days of progress I finally hit a wall. With PMS in full swing I'm not surprised. What's been worse though is that my brain is starting to betray me. Mentally I've been fighting the urge to rebell against the food. That little food beast that lives in my head has been making a LOT of noise. "Why do I have to eat egg whites?" "I want 'real' cheese!" I've countered every demand but it's left me a little down and depressed. But I never expected this to be easy. It's just that some time the thoght that 'I'm going to have to eat like this forever' gets to me. I'll get through it though. I'm staying strong and focused and my coach is helping a lot. I still want to push for 190 on wednesday. It's doable if I shed this PMS bloat. I hope everyone who's celebrating has a great 4th!


  1. Shawn, it will be hard I know, but I also know you can do this.

    You DON'T have to eat like that for the rest of your life though :-).

    Yes, at this moment in time you will, probably 99.9% of the time, but when you're about 130lb's of lean muscley chunk, then you could occasionally eat a meal once in a while, that was just a little blerchy, as long as you didn't start wanting to shovel heaps of food down your gizzards, a la Homer Simpson.

    I know you can do this, and I know you can be strong, and get the results you deserve.

    GOOD LUCK Shawn. I'm thinking of you, and wishing you well with forthcoming results.

    :-) :-).


  2. Love the patriotic avatar!
    Egg whites are getting to me as well!

  3. Keep going Girl!!! & happy 4th to ya !

  4. I hate eggs to begin so thankfully that's something I haven't forced myself to eat. Well...when I'm eating good that is.
