Ups, Downs....and a death.

I had some awesome results from my 30 day shred challenge.  I lost 6 lbs in 30 days and that was while NOT being strict.  I have been meaning to do an amazing update about my feelings on the shred, my successes and struggles while doing it, and before and after pics. had a different plan.  I have a large and VERY close knit family - and unfortunately (for us) God called my uncle home.  I have been mourning and going through with that.  Please pray for my family and I.  I do not want to disclose any details surrounding the situation, but he was 75 and truly lived a full life.  I was blessed to have known him and to have been a part of his life.

Also, I took  my USMLE Step I examination WOOT WOOT!  So.....before that needless to say, I was underground studying!  No seriously....I canceled my Comcast services (cable, phone internet) in effort to focus more.  I use my Verizon Smartphone to get online at home now-a-days.  I never would've thought I would be disciplined enough to make that kind of sacrifice but I did it, and it did help me to stay on task.  I'm not sure that I feel like adding that bill back on now that I know I can survive without it.

With me grieving and studying let me just say.....I'd be surprised if I haven't gained every one of those 6 pounds back.  I'm not getting on the scale for a couple of weeks, but I am trying to get back into my routine.  I'll be catching up on your blogs for the next few days, hopefully everything with everyone has been GOOOOOOOOOOOD!
