The most wonderful time of the year

Monday, December 13, 2010

Yesterday, Facebook sent me a notification that I'd been tagged in 3 photos. The photos were from the mass at my college's family weekend. I was in the choir, and one thing caught my attention: the muffin top.

Yep, even in leggings as opposed to tight jeans, the dreaded muffin was there. Talk about motivation, right?

But the motivation I get from things like this is usually short-lived. I see an unflattering picture and go, "Oh, I really need to lose weight," then two days later I lose motivation. After all, this past week and a half my school's cafeteria has been serving the same 3 dishes every night so I've been driven to our food court for meal exchange. Athough not everything there is unhealthy, I found myself even getting tired of it and that my stomach seemed to dislike it (gas and cramps bleh).

So, it's almost Christmas. It's finals week. Even the motivation I had to study study study dwindled a bit. I've been studying, but I haven't adhered to the strict schedule I planned out.

The only thing I seem able to commit to is exercise. One day last week, I woke up too late to go to the gym but squeezed in a quick workout in my dorm. I love exercise, but I love eating too and hate studying.

Now, if you've read this far, you may wonder if there's a point to this ramble? Well, there wasn't much of one, except to ramble. Let's hope those photos did the trick and if I can diminish the muffin.
