Happy New Year with a positive attitude!
Friday, January 01, 2010
Ha, just read my last blog entry (from the summer). I'm getting over that "little kid's tantrum" yet again. You think you're done with crazy overeating and can sense when you're full, but that balance can so quickly slip away! I'm not freaking out, though, and I actually feel better at 162.5 lbs than I've ever felt at that same weight, so it can't be that bad...I just wish my smaller clothes fit me a little better.
Anyway, I'll like to get down at least 10 lbs, so I'm back in my "healthy" weight range and will fit comfortably in my clothes, but more importantly I want to regain that control and balance of my eating habits. I started Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred yesterday, and I love how intense yet quick it is! I think this could be a routine that I can continue once the next semester of grad school starts up again, since it really doesn't take a lot of time.
I do want to say that despite the weight gain I'm actually really proud of my routine during the first semester of my program. I managed to have a relatively regular sleep schedule that included more hours of sleep than most people in my program, and I also went to yoga almost every Saturday (as I'd planned for myself!). The whole schedule was a big adjustment for me, and I made a good start. Now I will try to maintain those good things and add some new ones for the next semester! I wish I had time for spark during the semester, but I just don't. I will be using what I've learned from being here though, and will continue to stop in from time to time : )
Happy New Year!
