So I can't really say I've been going full out for the last 2 months. I really have not. I sort of went into maintain mode where I basically tried to avoid gaining back what I've lost. I've managed to do that, and now that I'm going into my last week of my in-class portion of my program I'm starting re-focus and narrow in on my goals. I start clinical placement a week from tomorrow so although no more tests and studying it'll be a whole new set of stressors - HOWEVER I will have no more excuses no more homework and assignments leaves time for the gym. So I plan to be more conisistent hitting the gym at every available opportunity. I have managed to stay in the 129/130 range. Although surprise of all surprises I've been 128.8 and then this morning 127.8!!! I'd like to take credit for that but I can't. You see, I've been sick the last week and have the wickedest sore throat known to man and makes eating seem like torture. I basically haven't been having any apetite and have been surviving on water, tea and Advil!!!
Anyway, I've thoroughly enjoyed school, but am glad to get out of the classroom and into the field where I'll be working. In Canada we call it Personal Support Worker (PSW), but in the States they call it Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA). My grades are great (90s) and I hope to make Honours or Exceptional status. My final exam in on Thursday, so I'm busy with studying right now...the end is in sight!
All in all things are good, although they could be better I'm having faith.
On a side note: those jeans I'm wearing in my profile pic are all together too big and a fellow student of mine actually pointed that out to me on Friday. So I yesterday I decided to try on a pair of size 4s that haven't been able to go past my knees in like forever and low and behold I got them up and buttoned them. Mind you, they are still too tight to be worn in public but somehow over the last little bit I've managed to lose inches somewhere along the way..just imagine where I'd be if I was actually trying. Anyway, I'm motivated and ready to get down to business...summer is just around the corner!!!
