Plan ahead! I make sure to plan my menus and make sure you have healthy snacks on hand. If you can on your days off make a few meals and freeze individual portions so you can put them in the microwave when you get home. Drink water while you are waiting for it to heat up this will help fill you up so you won't eat more than you should. Good Luck!
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going!
Its all about planning. Pack your dinner in a cooler or lunch sack, just like you would if you were taking your lunch to work. I'm sure you have some time between classes, even if its 5-10 minutes that you can at least snack on your dinner.
Sometimes its easier said than done but you'll have to find a way to carve out at least 30 minutes 3 times a week for exercise. Wake up 30 minutes earlier than usual, leave for school earlier and walk in a park nearby or anything else you can come up with. You simply have to find a way to rearrange your priorities.
Good luck! You an do this!

I have been a SAHM for awhile now and love it. Last year I decided to go back to school. I have 3 weeks to go and am really nervous. As a SAHM I was able to work out anytime I wanted and plan and make dinners. I am going to school evenings now 6-10 (although I have to leave about 4:30) I hate eating dinner before I leave so I end up getting some fast food on the way home cause I don't feel like cooking. I think that is the biggest reason why I gained back all the weight I lost last year. In 3 weeks I start my externship, working full time. How do I balance things and fit everything in? I haven't worked in years and am scared. I really hope that after my externship is over I can work part time to get used to it again. But what is some advice from those of you that work full time, how do I fit everything in?
