About this blog

Succeeding with JC despite the added challenges of MS. "Having MS is like having a new puppy in the house. You can lay down all the rules you want, but sooner or later someone is going to pee on the carpet."

Bravery is sometimes rewarded...

I recently decided to make some changes in my diet. I have heard so much about processed food being less than good for your system I decided to try and make some moves towards less processed. It's all about baby steps, I suppose. Is my diet still full of processed food, most assuredly. I have not become an expert in dietary preparations in a matter of a few weeks. I have not learned where and what to buy. I have most certainly not planted an organic garden in my back yard (not to mention th

Not fit company for man or beast..

Well, at least it was a loss. Small but a loss. This week I turned in a 0.6 loss. I'll take it. My mood has been less than stellar. The "monthly gift" has struck with a vengeance. There are times I think the Jewish faith was correct in separating men from women during "Niddah". Personally, I think I should be separated from men AND women during this time. I'm just not fit for human company in any way shape or form. Unfortunately, I think this may have taken a toll on my food choices thi

Yet more proof of my descent into madness...

So, it has come to pass that I have gone insane. The first sign was starting the Couch25k program. I did my Couch25k program again today (incline 1.0, fast walk 3 mph, jog 4 mph). When I got to the 25 minute mark the program tells you to cool down. It is a 5 minute cool down to make it 30 minutes exactly. But when I got to the 25 minute mark I felt like I had more juice so I raised the incline to 4.0 and changed the speed to a constant fast walk of 3 mph/no jogging for 10 more minutes. Then

2013 will NOT be a new me!

The title of my blog comes from a quote I came up with regarding a constant part of my life: "Having MS is like having a new puppy in the house. You can lay down all the rules you want but sooner or later someone is going to pee on the carpet." ************************************************************** I know there are a lot of confident people out there who think they are the greatest thing since someone thought to put peanut butter inside of chocolate. This entry is not aimed at you.

A forum entry I made on emotional/boredom eating...

I am currently at work and it dawned on me that my profession is very dangerous for the waistline. I am a police dispatcher. I handle 911 calls and all sorts of situations with my officers and citizens. So, I have to re-learn how to recognize emotional triggers and how to deal with them. I have to retrain myself on what to do during "free time". There is a lot of down time in dispatch. It is feast or famine so to speak. You can have 10 minutes of crazy frantic activity and then a few hour

What's up with the 'Featured' blog page that sits on the main Jenny community page? It's been almost 3 months since it's been updated. Is she still around? Is everything okay? Does anyone else ever wonder about this? - Shannon

Back from the Caribbean...

** The title of my blog comes from a quote I came up with regarding a constant part of my life: "Having MS is like having a new puppy in the house. You can lay down all the rules you want but sooner or later someone is going to pee on the carpet." ** So, I am back from the Caribbean cruise with my husband. We left on my birthday and were gone for 7 days. We visited 4 ports; Cozumel/Belize/Mahogany Bay, Honduras/Costa Maya. There were good and bad parts of the cruise. I would not want t

Not the greatest week...

Had a loss last weigh in so that's good (I forget how much...1.2lbs or something like that). Despite the success I just haven't been excited towards JC this week. I went to a goodbye dinner for a couple of friends last Thursday and fell face first into a Cheeseburger and fries. ::sigh:: I have also had a couple of afternoons where the munchies got the best of me and I had a couple of non-JC 100 calorie packs of carb crapola...I mean a couple each day. ::sigh:: And my exercise has been none

Out of disappointment can still come victory...

Tonight was supposed to be the Halloween dance at my ballroom dance studio. Hubby decided at the last minute that he didn't want to go. He claimed he was tired. I think he likely didn't like that he did not have a fancy costume. He's vain like that. And he always waits until the last minute to back out. I had been looking forward to getting my exercise through a couple of hours of ballroom dancing. Now, that was not going to happen. So, I took my disappointment and even a little bit of a

Holiday/Party Tip

With the holidays almost here I thought it might be a good idea to give the one idea I have come up with to deal with the parties/buffets/gatherings that are sure to dot your calendar in the near future. Use a salad plate instead of a dinner plate? Sure you can do that. Use a tiny fork instead of a dinner fork? You can do that too. But what if you are stuck in a gathering that has only one size plate and/or one size utensil? Try this: Load your plate up with "safe" veggies. WAIT! WAIT

I Need To Put Up Or Shut Up...

So, this past weigh in I was a bit disappointed with my result. It was my own fault. I had hoped for more and did not get it. But there was a silver lining. I felt the positive outcome was this part: "It is all up to me how next week turns out. If I am not happy with the loss from this week, I need to change something that I did or did not do. There is no one to take the responsibility for how I feel at weigh in except me. I own my actions. I own my results." Since I rather don't lik

It's all up to me...

So, I had my weigh in today. I had an initial feeling of disappointment. I lost less than the previous 2 weeks. I lost 3 pounds the first 2 weeks. This week I lost 2 pounds. I know a loss is a loss and I should be happy with any loss. No matter how I felt when I initially found out my loss I have come to a conclusion. I feel this is the important part of the day. It is all up to me how next week turns out. If I am not happy with the loss from this week, I need to change something that I

Time to face the music...and what sweet music it is

Tuesday = Weigh in day. Normally I would fear this day. On JC I am learning to love weigh in day. I went in for my weigh in this morning. Down 3 pounds exactly! YIPPEE! I probably cannot expect this kind of success every time but I will enjoy it while it lasts. So, kudos to JC! I am losing while eating food I enjoy. Awesomeness! Right now I am celebrating with my breakfast of cinnamon rolls and milk. Ah, the sweet taste of success. <snicker> I hope everyone has as great a week

7 days of Fried Chicken and Cheesy Mashed Potatoes?

Okay so I haven't ordered a full week of this dish.....yet. But after having it again today I am giving it some serious thought. JC hit it out of the ball park with this dish, IMHO. How am I going to lose weight eating something this tasty? My co-workers now know to stay far away when they smell this dish heating up. They know I will go feral and hunt them down if they glance sideways toward my fried chicken and mashed taters. ::snicker:: Way to go JC!

Non-weight related victory!

I am a police/911 dispatcher. In a dispatch environment it is a feast or famine situation. You can and will spend long periods doing nothing. Then, all heck will break loose and you will be super busy as long as it takes to get the situation under control, which can be anywhere from 10 seconds (when we get to transfer to another agency...YAY!) to hours that span into the next shift (like the recent unstable explosives in our bomb safe we had to detonate...we use the explosives to train our K9'

Mixed emotions on weigh in

​​So, I had my first weigh in today. I lost 3.2 pounds. I am unsure how I feel about it. Due to schedule conflicts my weigh in was 1 week and 5 days from my start date. So, almost 2 weeks for a little over 3 pounds. Before joining JC I was losing on weight watchers so it is only natural that I did not have a big loss of water weight. I joined JC because my husband (he lost 11 pounds!) is doing it and it is easier to do the same plan as your spouse. I know I will be grateful for the lo

First weigh in coming up

Hello. My name is Shannon. I am new to Jenny Craig. I am going to be keeping a record of my journey here. It will include my victories, challenges and even my failures. I expect to have all of these because that is life. Hopefully, even my failures will be victories because they will be learning experiences. The title of my blog refers to one of my favorite self-quotes. "Having MS is like having a new puppy in the house. You can lay down all the rules you want but sooner or later, someo
