Slow and Steady? I sure hope so.......

Sunday, March 20, 2011

It has been difficult to workout and once again I will not reach my Fitness Goals. I wish I could say I sat around and squandered the time then I could guilt trip myself into doing better. But the truth is I have been so busy with graduating on time and carrying 19 units this quarter and then 24 units coming up in the next quarter that will all the time I spend on projects and homework and studying there is never any time left except to eat and sleep. I have been stickler about my food that way I am not over indulging. I do allow myself the occasional treat so it doesn't seem like its all work and no play. Even my mom has mentioned how drained I am and when she wakes up in the night to use the restroom tries to convince me to go to sleep since it is 2 and 3 am. Knowing I will be up at 6:30am to begin the day.

The only thing I can do is KEEP TRYING. School ends in June and I haven't put getting healthy aside. I'm still eating great but I do feel MUCH better when I can get a workout in. But when is there time!? Over Spring Break I am going to Disneyland. Even my nieces have said, "Auntie are you sure your going to be up to Disneyland? Because you have dental appointments schduled." I said no matter what kind of pain or discomfort I am in WE ARE GOING. Otherwise I won't get a break at all between the quarters! And I will be overwhelmed. I even have to put off appointments until I have breaks. I have let my teeth suffer long enough and bad teeth affect health so I am going to go take csre of them FINALLY and complete this last quarter. 6 classes. 24 units. 6days a week. I am taking:

Puppetry in the Classroom
Theatre Criticism
Race and Racism
Analysis of Drama and Writing
Theatre Managment

ALL writing course with the acception of Puppetry but I will be building and constructing puppets. TIME CONSUMING! We don't build sock puppets. These will be MUPPET size puppets. But in the end I will graduate and I can begin to focus on my career. I set up a TWITTER page and you can follow my health and career path at Kimsgoing2bok if you are interested in seeing what I do and what my classes and struggle consist of beyond Spark life.

I WILL REACH MY GOALS!!! I guess I will have to go slower toward them than I first anticipated. But, Slow and steady wins the race.......right? I sure hope so.

    As someone who is in school herself, I can definitely relate to being too busy to fit everything (including exercise) in! However, reading this made me realize that you were far busier than I currently am so I sympathize with what you went through! Now that you've graduated (I'm assuming), I hope things are a lot easier on you! :)

    You can do it!!

Do you take the stairs at school between classes? You could go up and down an extra flight or two. Or take the long route between buildings, go in the far door instead of the close one. Park a bit further away? Each little bit would help and not cut into your study time.

In just 3 or so months you should be able to relax a bit and get outside and move more.

Great going on the eating, that's probably more than half the battle!
