I am nearly halfway through winter quarter classes already - time is zooming by. That is probably because I am so busy my head is dizzy. School and homework typically keeps me fully engaged from 8am - 8 pm with a 1 hour break here and there for sanity checks. This quarter I am taking history of religion, English 103 and Nutrition...full load and tons of reading/writing. I also am pretty heavy into volunteering at church as I am involved in the leadership for our 2-12 year old kids group...primary. We are still doing foster care, but since our house is empty, except for our two, we have been focusing on respite which is weekend care for other foster parents who need a break.
So, with all this going on how do you find time to exercise, eat well balanced meals (let alone fix them for the fam) and get online to keep tabs on facebook and spark people? When I find out I will let you know!
For now I am just in the plugging along category. I wake up at 5 and by 6 try to ply myself out of bed to go work out. Sometimes I don't make it, but so far I've been successful 4 days a week. I feel so great when I work out - I just keep telling myself that and it makes mornings easier. I still work out to the 3 mile weight lifting Leslie Sansome video. Once or twice a week I have notes in front of me and study while I do the workout. I also still get to go to my yoga class - that is major for me. I love the sore muscles after a great yoga workout - it really makes me feel like I am making changes and it helps that each time the poses are easier to hold.
The weight is just hanging steady right now, but I continue to feel great and am happy just to be hanging on the the wagon and running with it.
