Next Time..

  • When people ask me how tall I am I say, "not very." It usually makes people laugh. That being said, it shouldn't be said when the gyno is performing his exam. Next time-- just answer 5"0.
  • I've reached my fat limit. As a 5"0 girl, extra weight is not flattering. I know that 110 pounds would be ideal for most people, but not for me--it carries right on my stomach. 10 pounds needs to come off! I am not a "sweets" eater-I would probably pick chips over chocolate any day. I crave salty/fried goodness. Except it isn't "good" for me. Although I normally run a few times a week, I had to take a few weeks off due to shin splints. The last time I did the Shred I got way too over heated and got sick. I haven't done it since (about 2 weeks. BAD. Megan!) - next time-- don't eat tortilla chips & sour cream for dipping right before.((I am not looking for a "you shouldn't complain about being 110 pounds" or "you're so skinny!" type of comment. I know what weight looks good on me and what doesn't. The end.))
  • I shot two newborn sessions for Memorial Day and they can be previewed here. I drove 2 hours to my parents house for the first, then drove another hour to the second shoot and two hours back home. next time-- I won't shoot two newborns in two different locations in one day.

Love the photos! Beautiful work. I'm starting The 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels today. I totally understand the need to get healthy. Good luck girl!

Sarah said...

oh my gosh!!! I'm the exact same! I'd pick chips over sweets anyday too! I'm definitely savory over sweet! And I know how you feel my extra weight sits right in my stomach and then on my thighs, ugh! Good Luck! : )

I'm only 2 inches taller than you but I've been stuck at 120. I'd loved to get back down to about 112.

I also choose salty over sweet.
