New semester, new clothes, no sanity!

Wednesday, October 07, 2009

I managed to stick with my jogging throughout the summer, and gradually worked my way up to a 30 minute jog every-other day.

Consequently, I'm looking and feeling better than I have since high school! I've had to buy new work clothes because all of the ones I wore last year (I work at a university, so my "year" = August-May) fall off now! That's a great feeling. I'm back into my high school size!!

I think the best thing that's happened to me is the sense of power and accomplishment. I wanted to lose weight and I DID because I stuck with the exercising!

Unfortunately, with the 15 hours of classes I'm taking this semester (plus my job, plus my kids and hubby) I don't have a lot of time to prepare healthy meals for myself. I plan to work on that next. :)

    I'm a college prof so I'm on the semester system, too.

    CONGRATS to you! WOW - 30 minute jogs? I don't think I'll *ever* be able to jog, but walking works for me. And I'm pretty sure I'll never be back to my HS size (but I'm old so maybe that's a good thing ;-))

    But GOOD FOR YOU! Congrats on the new wardrobe, enjoy the 'new' body, and good luck with your classes!
