I have been on SP for just over a month and am disappointed with my progress. I have only lost 5 lbs. I know I could have done much better. I hope to stick to the menu plan a lot more this month with xmas coming up. I plan to do more exercise, 4 or 5 days a week for 60 mins. I have already taken steps to make it easier to stick to it. I have been overly tired for a few weeks now and I think it may be eye strain from my glasses, I made an appointment to get it checked out. I also saw a massage therapist for my stiff neck and headaches, which I believe are from the glasses too. It was my first professional massage and it was awesome, though I am a little sore today. She said that my shoulder and neck muscles were very tight. I will continue going for at least the next month as I do have all of my insurance coverage that I can use before the new year. I will be doing Hapkido on Mondays and Wednesdays, Ballroom dancing on Tuesday and/or Friday, and I will be doing a Zumba class or Yoga on Thursdays and Saturdays when I don't work. Hopefully I'll stick to my plan and make more progress this month, as I know xmas is going to be hard, I will be limiting but not avoiding any of the usual xmas food and treats. I know I can do well enough the rest of the month that I won't need to avoid all the treats. Hopefully I will help my BLC7 team much more this month as well.
Hope you all have a wonderful week ^_^

I am a little stressed about school right now. I'm having serious doubts about my program. I'm in Civil Engineering Technology and I don't know if I can do it or if I want to do it anymore. I'm finished the first 2 years and I'm currently on my first work term. I've been having doubts all term and some of last year. I've been thinking maybe I'd like to be a nutrionist. I know I'd have to lose a lot of my weight before people would take advice from me or where I would be at the point feeling comfortable giving advice. I've always been interested in nutrition. I think taking the program would reallt help me as well. I know that one day I will take the program. What I'm stressing about is whether or not to drop out of engineering now to do it, or to wait and see if I can get my diploma and work while I'm taking it. I know I've only got a year left, but the program I'm looking at is only 1 year full time or 2 part time. So, it's either upset my parents and go for it now and be done in a year, or don't upset my parents, try to finish, and maybe be done in 3 years or more.
It's a huge decision and if I decide to take the nutrition I know my parents will be angry. They're paying after all, and my dad is an engineer and he was so happy when I told him I was gonna take engineering. I don't know if I can handle the course for another year though, I don't know if I can graduate, if I can do the work. So basically, I'm stressed out because I don't know what to do, and I need to decide soon because I'm starting back in school in January.

Last night was great. I went to the Fred Astaire Canadian National Dance Championships and it was great. It was only the awards ball, not the actual competition, but it was great. We got to do some dancing, and watch all the champions dance, and we got to see Eric Luna and Georgia Ambarian dance a few times. They were awesome, I swear she spent most of the time in the air ^_^ It was very exciting and I'm glad I got the chance to go. I was nervous about going because no one was going with me, but it wasn't too bad because I knew my instructors would be there. I had fun dancing too. I was there until midnight and then it took me an hour to get home. I was tired, but I didn't have to work today so I got to sleep in. Basically, it was a very long and very fun night ^_^ What's weird about that is that I never go out to parties or stay out late and I actually had fun. Some people even asked me to sit with them, the ones I've danced with at the practice parties. They were very nice, I was suprised though, I didn't expect anyone to care that I was alone. It was kinda nice.

I have been so tired all week and I don't know why. Today is a little better but I could still go home and go to bed right now. Last night I wanted to go to the gym but I was so tired I didn't trust myself drivnig. Today I've taken some ginseng pills but it doesn't seem to doing much. I want to work out tonight but don't know if I'll be able to. I am getting 7-8 hrs of sleep each night, and I am using my stupid CPAP machine for my sleep apnea. Nothing seems to be helping this week. I've been having headaches too, but I think it's because I'm so tired.
I haven't lost any weight this week, in fact I've gained a pound. I've even tried high sugar drinks, didn't do anything, tho that may be partly why I gained. My eating has been not bad, not great as I never have the energy to cook or prepare anything right now.
I don't know what to do about it right now as I can't even make an appointment with my doctor until tuesday, they're closed to move their office. I'm actually hoping something is wrong with me so that the doctor can fix it. If anyone has any ideas I'd be happy to hear them.
On a more positive note, I am excited about going to the Fred Astaire Canadian National Dancesport Championships tomorrow night. I just hope I can stay awake for the whole thing. Otherwise I may need to get myself a room at a hotel there, it's an hour drive and that'll be too dangerous if I can barely stay awake.
Anyway, have a nice weekend everyone, and I'll let you know what happens with my excessive tiredness.

I was going to cancel my gym membership, but I decided to downgrade it instead. It's half the price now and I can only go on Tues, Thurs and Sat. But that's ok, it's only $20/month and I'm usually busy other days anyway. So tonight I'm gonna go and do the Zumba class. The last time I went to the gym they only had Zumba at times I couldn't go, my hapkido was at the same time. On saturdays when I don't work I can go do the yoga class too. I'm not good at yoga as I'm not that flexible, but I think it will really help with the dancing and the hapkido so I hope I get to go on a fairly regular basis.
Last night at hapkido I had a really good workout. We did pushups and crunches and running and leg lifts and stuff like we always do. But then we did kicking drills and forms a lot faster than we nornmally do cus we didn't have that time left. So we did cardio for like an hour straight. It was great ^_^ and very tiring.
Well, have a nice day everyone!
