Wow, it has been such a long time since I posted, so I thought it was time for a quick update. I recently started going back to school and I didn't think I would be that busy, but I enjoy it even though it is kinda hard to get used to studying again, but I made some great friends at school and that always make everything easier even though my major is more difficult and time consuming as I thought it would be. But it is still better than staying at home and hoping to find a decent job with my other degree (there are basically no jobs in that field in my area).
Anyways, I am still checking this website daily, but I am not as active as I used to be because I am so busy with homework and other things that I only log in to get my Sparkpoints and use my trackers.
Unfortunately, my new schedule makes it quite hard to run more than two or three times a week because it is dark by the time I get home and there are no lights on my trail. On the other hand I walk a lot now and I hardly ever take the car to school so I count this as a form of exercise even though I don't log those walks as activity.
Overall I can say that I do see positive changes if I compare myself to the person I used to be about a year or two ago. I am by far more positive and active. I have lost a few dress sizes, even though it is quite ridiculous that I have clothes sizes ranging from xl to s and they all fit just fine. Of course, I prefer wearing my 's' clothes even though they are larger than 'normal' clothes in that size, but sometimes you just need this as a confidence boost LOL.
I also had a couple people telling me that I look so much better now that I have lost some weight and just today I had a neighbour asking me what diet I was on and what my secret is. I told her that there really is no secret. I just learned to focus more on what kind of food I am eating and I pay so much more attention to the quality of my food.
Anyways, I have to get back to my homework. Hope everyone is doing well. Keep sparking
