School is taking a tole on me
Posted by: sgregg In: Uncategorized
I was looking back at some of my earlier posts at the beginning of August. I had so much enthusiasm about getting healthy and making my goals. And then it just all of a sudden stopped and I got serious with everything. School had started. I have been stressing so badly over some of my assignments. Well, mainly just one huge assignment coming up. Today has been one of my most busiest days since school started. I had a ton of things to do and I got all but one done. I definitely feel like I have accomplished something. I wish I could focus more on my health though. Fortunately, I am still able to work out on Tuesday and Thursday before classes start. I am very thankful of that because working out has really helped my stress levels. I wish I could go to the gym more often, but it’s just not going to happen right now.
Thursday, I completed Day 2 of Week 3 of the c25k program. I really do enjoy the program. A lot more than I thought I would anyway. I actually look forward to the burning in my calves when I run. I look forward to the sweat too. It lets me know that I’m doing something. AND I am still slowly losing weight even though I’m not eating as well as I should or getting all my water in. I know the exercise definitely helps with that. I may go walking this Sunday. I am going to my parents’ house for my dad’s birthday. They live out in the country and there is plenty of walking/jogging room. I may attempt my c25k there. I’m not sure yet though. It’s a lot harder running outside than on a treadmill and a lot of the walk/run would be going up a hill if I’m at my mom’s. I may try it anyway.
I have my big formal observation this coming Monday…eeeek! I am already nervous about it. I wish I could go work out beforehand, but it’s just not possible on Mondays.
Okay, it’s after 11pm and I must hit the sack. I haven’t stayed up this late in a while.
