Just a few notes.

Hey guys.

Sorry I've been sparse in the updates lately.  There is a lot of change going on in my life, and I'm finding it hard to concentrate on writing here. :(  I'm sure it's just a funk and I'll be over it soon.

One, I am keeping Chile in my thoughts.  Hold tight, Hawaii.  /sigh...   I feel like the end of the world is coming.

Two, you should go check out this post at Eating Journey.  I've never related to the term "compulsive overeater" but considering how out of control I feel the last few days, it struck a small chord with me.  Though I usually won't overeat or stuff myself every day... I definitely am two things:  A fast eater, and a carb addict.  I eat SO fast... I rarely put my fork down.  I often can finish a meal and struggle to remember what it tasted like.  Dan reminds me to eat slower, or to put my fork down every once in awhile, but I can. not. do. it. 

I haven't gone back to low carb yet (going to the grocery store today), so that's probably why I feel out of control, when in fact I haven't actually been eating THAT badly.  I'm maintaining, in fact, back down to 172.8 today.

Three, I'm looking for a new studio space!  Here are a few shots of the place I looked at yesterday:
I'm looking at a few other places this week, but I really, really love this space.  Lots of colorful walls, around 1600 square feet, and it's a killer rent!  The location is really fantastic as well... it's super close to / basically downtown, and it's only about 8 minutes from my house.



Ta-Ta for now,

~Jenn

That studio space looks awesome! Can't wait to see what you pick to be the home for your photography.

And don't worry about the eating, you will get back on track! At least you realize what you are doing, that is sometimes the hardest part.

I just ran across your blog and I too have been going through a bit of the funk. You have inspired me to write a Funk post. Thanks for the inspiration and I will definitely be checking this out. Congrats on the weight loss...

Low carb works great but I always find it so hard to get back on once I fall off.

The studio space looks nice with lots of good light. Do you do a lot of studio work?

The studio space looks awesome!!! Hope you can get out of your funk soon. I hate when I get in one. It seems like it takes me awhile to get out of it again.

Hey- just found your blog. I love your honesty- and I completly get the feeling out of control bit ... really, I do. It's like you're almost waiting for what ever is going to happen, to just go ahead and happen so you can get out of the rut ... at least that's how I look at it. Anyway, cool blog! Thanks.

Love the Studio Space. I think it suits you, and it will be great to see it after you move in!

It is so wonderful that you realize it is not the end-of-the-world if you fall into a slump here and there. If we take our slumps and use them to teach us something or use them to reevaluate what we are doing we can actually be thankful for them. (ha ha try telling me that when i am in one) Everyone reaches a plateau. Maybe this is yours! You will go over it and you will lose those 20 in a heart beat! Congrats on the weight loss this week. That is awesome!!! Thank you JB! You are my inspiration!

I so get it about falling in a funk. It can be hard to get out of. are you feeling down or a bit flat? regardless, Be nice to yourself, and get back on that horse. I love how real you are and it helps all the rest of us.
WOW! on getting studio space! that space looks fab with lots of light. here's to it all working out for you.

ps. I just scrolled down to type in the little word verification and it is "horses" - how's that?!

I've been a follower for a while, but first comment. I just wanted to let you know I just had to give you a shout out in my own blog. I got into my goal jeans the other day and following you has totally helped motivate me. So thanks :)

Looks Nice! You'll have to take Jesse and I by when we get there next week.

Also, last night's after-the-bar-pigout for me: an entire basket of french fries, french toast smothered in syrup and... hash brows.

FUCK!
