Happy news!

I’ve currently lost 20lbs from my 30lbs goal that I set earlier this year. It’s been really hard but I feel awesome now. I’ve got lots of comments at work that I look ‘slender’ and everyone is proud of me for doing this.

So, I’m re-assigning my goal for the rest of the year. My new goal is to lose another 18lbs and then keep off all the weight that I’ve lost.

I’m trying for 120-125lbs. (That’s the weight I was all throughout high-school.)

Wish me luck!

Oh, and if you haven’t tried this app: myfitnesspal — TRY IT NOW! It’s awesome I love it and couldn’t do this without it.

I’m writing all of this on my blog, in hopes that it will inspire me to continue to reach for my goal of losing 30 lbs and becoming a healthier person. I know that so many people out there are also fighting for the same goal, so perhaps we can help each other. (I know right now, I could use a bit of support. I’m freaking out a little bit.)

It’s strange because I’ve never had weight problem until after I turned 25. I wasn’t always ‘battling the bulge’ and for the most part, I’ve been really healthy. (In all honesty, I’d always been a bit of a stick figure… wanting more curves.) Slowly, I started to gain the curves I was craving, but it didn’t stop!

I pin-point my problem to the fact that I live alone for the first time in my life. When I lived with my family, my meals were planned and shared; now, I have no energy to cook for only one person — myself. I got lazy. So, what do I do? I eat the awful pre-packaged meals that are now literally EVERYWHERE! You can’t walk into a store without pre-packaged cookies, chocolate, ‘gourmet’ meals, and tv dinners filling up entire aisles. When did we, as a society, need an entire aisle of cookies?

Suddenly, I’m at the doctor and staring at my weight with horror. I have hit the highest weight that I have ever been in my life. And not only that, but my doc tells me that my blood sugar is high. I almost passed out hearing that. She tells me that I have six months to lower my weight and my blood sugar or I have to start on diabetes medication!

Since I heard the results, I’ve dumped out everything in my pantry and fridge. I took all of the junk food to work and put it on the table to give away. I was so embarrassed that I didn’t tell anyone that the food was from me. I filled an entire conference table with junk food and watched as an entire company shared the food that I had been eating by myself for months. I had so much, I could’ve fed a small army. Shameful.

BUT, I’ve started to lose weight by eating healthy and started tracking all of the nutrients that I put in my mouth. It’s really hard! I had no idea about the amount of sugar in foods that I ate every-day! I bet no one realizes that there is 22G of sugar in orange juice.

I even put this little tracker from myfitnesspal on my site to inspire myself to hit the green color. I use that cell phone app to track every meal that I eat. Today is especially hard; not sure why, probably because its Sunday and there is nothing to do. All I want to do is eat and snack.

Thankfully, I’ve got two friends that recommended a couple of tricks: so, when I want a snack I drink a cup of herbal tea. (Drinking tea now.)

Well, that’s my story. Please share yours. I’d love to know how everyone is doing on their diets. I really hope that someone can help me keep this up or I’m doomed.

Subject: Rec: BBC Sherlock Fanfiction (1)
Security: Public
Tags:& raves, bbc sherlock (tv), rants, recs

I’ve decided to put together a list of my favorite BBC Sherlock Fanfiction. In no particular order:

Where You Need To Be by dreykar

Summary: After a ‘boring’ week Mycroft brings news of a family death to Sherlock and John. But this is no murder case, something far worse. It’s a reason for Sherlock to have to interact with his family and for John to slowly discover parts of his friend’s past.

Loved it because: It’s surprisingly deep and personal. Sherlock shines in this story, coming to life in the middle of his family tragedy. We learn about the death of his mother and possible reasons why he is as cold as he seems. Mycroft is a master manipulator here, but he does it because he loves his little brother and has his best intentions in mind. John is a supportive figure — there for Sherlock when he needs him the most. His interactions with the family are crack-tastic. It’s a great read.

————————————————-

Worthless  by Jomel10

Summary: John is hurt when Sherlock forgets to meet him again. What is their friendship worth? Meanwhile, Sherlock has a dramatic confrontation with Anderson, which will change everything. Can John help Sherlock recover?
Loved it because: It’s my dirty little secret. It’s so horrific that I can’t pull yourself away from the computer screen. The ‘bad guy’ is a person you wouldn’t expect. Plus, Jomel is awesome. Can’t recommend it enough, but beware of the rating and the theme. Also, it becomes slashy…which is not my favorite, but I can ignore it because it’s Sherlock/John. It’s not enough to hurt him once, but having to see your attacker at work every day — it’s just torture.
————————————————-
Summary: Sherlock is taken by Moriarty, and when he’s found he’s going to need John more than ever as he makes his way slowly back to normality.
Loved it because:  A friend recommended it because I’m a sucker for a long h/c story, so I’d like to recommend it back.
————————————————-
Partners in Crime  by Richefic</p>
Summary: John Watson receives some devastating news which puts a spanner in his medical ambitions. Will Sherlock prove capable of the kind of comfort and reassurance he needs or will their partnership be ended before its even begun? Set between 1.1 and 1.2.

Loved it because:  It was one of the first fics I read when I started getting into this fandom. Richefic was one of my favorite authors in the NCIS fandom, so I decided to give her new story a try. I read it and fell in love with Sherlock and immediately watched the first season as soon as possible.

—————————————————

And A Doctor by StillWaters1

Summary: It was only when people actually saw John working as a physician that they began to understand: that it wasn’t just about bullets and IEDs and trauma care under fire. That “doctor” actually covered a pretty wide field. And that John was bloody good at covering ground. 5 times Dr. Watson treated others and 1 time he treated himself.

Loved it because: John is a doctor here and a damn good one at that. I would recommend this story based on the first chapter alone. My favorite part is when John takes care of Lestrade when he becomes dehydrated and weak. Actually, I would recommend anything that StillWaters1 has written.

Well, my friends. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on my blog. It’s been a while since I made any updates — horrible of me, I know.

But it was for a good reason: I’ve been busy moving three times in less than 2 months. It was just a crazy yet fun experience. Now, I’ve settled into my new home and into a new routine and I hope to continue updating this site.

The only thing is that my interests have changed. I know it happens, right? I’m not so much into Supernatural — THE HORROR. I think I’ve grown out of it.

My new obsessions include: Sherlock (BBC) and the Avengers. So, I’ll be posting some cool stuff for it. :)

If I ever get a weekend off, I have a new video idea that I’d love to piece together.

I’ll also write up some reviews. Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day!

Watson’s Woes @ livejournal is one of my favorite fan communities of late. I designed a banner for it based on Season 2 of BBC Sherlock episode the Reichenbach Fall. it features John Watson in one of his dark moments prior to meeting Sherlock Holmes. “I was so alone…”

Dean quickly tired of leaning over the bench, and gently picked up the squirming bundle. A peak at its rear determined the sex, and he felt giddy when he discovered it was female. “Hmm.” He laughed to himself, “Even felines can’t resist my charm.”
