Happy July! So far this month is starting out well. I stayed busy at work today and was even given additional responsibilities. I got 100% on my lab project. I received scholastic honors for the spring semester. I got in a circuit workout and walk. I ate within my calorie range but it could still be improved. We had beautiful weather today. I hope it sticks around.
I had a good weekend. I went kickboxing and made it to the dog park both days. I overate on Saturday. Pizza and beer. I felt awful afterwards. I cleaned up my eating today and I'm committed to staying on track. I worked on homework. I picked up some vitamins at GNC so I'm going to see if that makes a difference in my energy levels. I am also making some realizations. Someone I thought was a good friend has completely blown me off for the last week. I am coming to terms with the fact that this person did not care for me as much as I thought that they did. This is not the first time this individual has done this. They tend to use me when they are bored or feeling down. I can no longer be this persons "best day". I am not going to allow myself to be used by this person any longer. I think this may be for the best because I am much happier with my life now that this person is no longer around. They tend to place a dark cloud over me with their drama and while I was sad, disappointed, and hurt at the beginning of this week, I now feel that this is for the best and am seeing the positive aspect of the situation.
I had a busy day today. I went and had a physical done. I found out I was shorter than I thought by an inch and a half. I've lost 11 pounds since last year! Everything else was normal. I had to have a blood draw but that was for a school project. I went to work afterwards and had a good talk with my new manager and coworkers. I had my first test tonight in my nutritional assessment class. I got an 82.5 which disappointed me because I'm a huge perfectionist but I'm trying not to get angry at myself because I still passed. I made some really good tilapia with some jicama slaw. I've never used jicama before but I really like it. I also went grocery shopping so I'm stocked up on healthy foods for next week. I didn't get to the gym today but tomorrow morning I'm going boxing! :)
Another regular day. Went to work. Fit in a 35 minute circuit workout. I didn't get to walk tonight because it is raining so my dogs are pissed. I studied for my test that I'm taking tomorrow. I got 100% on another assignment. I ate within my calorie range. Nothing too exciting today.

Glad your week got better! We all have those days that are tough....glad you were able to work through it. It is difficult to work and go to school....especially online....that usually involves more reading and writing....so great job on that. Sometimes we just have to do what works for us in life. I am in the similar situation....work full time and carry 9 units. Some online some in class. I am transferring to completely online next semester. Give yourself a pat on the back for all you are doing!
I had a good day today. I had my doubts but it turned out good. It started with my cat spilling coffee all over the counters and floor, me getting burned, and then almost running late for work. I made it on time though! I am proud of myself for standing up for myself at work today. It made me feel good to not get walked all over for once. I got 100% on a school assignment. Fit in yoga and a walk. I ate within my calorie limits today. I had some conversations with friends and family members. Overall, a positive day.
My DD took a couple of on-line classes as she finished two years of college before she up & got married. (not smart, but she didn't listen to me.) But, those on-line classes had SO much written work. I really though going to a regular college class was easier.
I hope your day went well. I am a firm believer that we need positive people in our lives. Maybe you could join a excise group at your gym? seeing the same people every week or so can help build those positive relationships. Or does your online school have study groups? As popular as online school is you may find study groups at local cyber cafe's. But you must remember you always have sparkpeople friends. I love the motivational team I belong to. They are like family to me. They really care. I wish you well!
So this is the first time I've done this but I think it will be therapeutic for me. So here goes! I woke up today feeling sad and lonely. I don't have a huge support system. Four years ago I changed my life and walked away from several negative people in my life but since then I haven't rebuilt up a good support system. I work full time and I go to school full time so it doesn't leave a lot of leisure time to connect with people. Plus my school is 100% online so I don't even get face to face interactions. Some days are harder than others and I feel like today is one if those days. I'm gonna try to turn it around though. After I get off work I'm going to the gym to try to perk up my mood before school.
