Hi ladies,
So I graduated. I'm done with school for the first time in 21 years. I compeletly fell off the wagon during finals, pre-graduation celebration and post-graduation celebrations. But you only live once and if I would have spent the entire time counting everything I ate and freaking out then I would not have enjoyed any of it. It was nice to be "normal" for a few days.

Now 70 more days of studying for the bar exam then I really get my life back. My goal is to working up to exercising 5 days a week. As I think I may have reported I was having post TT problems becasue I would hurt my abs every time I went to the gym. I tried again yesterday and survived. I did 30 minutes cardio and 30 minutes weights my shoulders are sore but my abs are ok today. That is a good sign right. So I took today off and am going to try again tomorrow.

Next working on getting my food in check.

And just for fun becasue it makes me feel better about the gowns making everyone look fat ... 2006 undergrad picture and 2009 law school picture

OMG I *know* (all too well) how stressful this time of year is for you!!! So, um yeah, you *need* to not spend precious mental energy on something like "eating clean" or whatever for a couple of weeks when your future livlihood is at stake!!!!!
Ahhhhh CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :hug:
(And, you look great-- obviously you have two major accomplishments down already----- just rationalize that this means you can so pass the bar!!!! Because it does! Thats what I'm telling myself anyways!!! hahaha)
