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.
