Oh, good luck Maggie!!! *big hug* Do what you can with what you've got, and don't kick yourself over it. Seriously, enjoy yourself! The Waldorf in Manhattan??? Whew. I say just have a nice time. When your schedule becomes more normal, then get back on track. Just try to make the wisest choices you can this week, but like I said, don't beat yourself up. Have a wonderful time!!
We'll be here when you get back!
Speaking of people missing...anyone heard from HH lately? I wonder how she's been.... I really hope her apartment is working out for her. HH, if you're out there, your sistas miss you!!!
I'm trying to think if I have anything really worth updating about, lol...but I don't really. I have some orientation meetings to go through today, which kind of sucks, but whatever. At least I know the ropes of this program a lot better than I did when I started last year. We're supposed to have a pizza party this afternoon as a welcome back thing for the department. Guess who's already prepared her South Beach turkey wraps and put them in a little brown bag?
I did that for a couple of reasons. 1. I don't want people coming up to me asking me why I'm not eating. I'm not ready to reveal my eating plan to a lot of people just yet. 2. I don't want to feel like I can't participate in a departmental event just because I'm choosing not to cram my face with pizza (free or not).
Oh, and my personal trainer had a goal set for me. Five weeks ago, after I had just started WW, she said, "You keep this up and we'll have you at 200 by the time school starts." To be honest, I was a little doubtful but didn't want to burst her bubble. Guess who was able to give her trainer the good news of a goal attained this morning?
It was such a great feeling because not only am I proud of myself, but she's also very proud of me. So it just makes it all the better.
Well, I better go. I have a faculty meeting in about an hour and I need to take my shower. I hear they don't like you stinking up the room when there's a meeting taking place, lmao.
So I'm out.
Have a wonderful Tuesday, ladies!!
