I'm back, baby.

Thursday, December 01, 2011


Well, everyone falls off the wagon every so often, right?

Other than being extra self conscious and a little pudgier than my typical already-slightly-pudgy self, I'm pretty happy. Things got pretty bad, but I started paying attention to my stress levels (I even got a bit of acupuncture), and it seems as though it may have caused a lot of my symptoms... Nasty symptoms, too.. Dizziness, rashes, hair loss, memory problems, concentration issues.. They basically thought I had heavy metals poisoning.

For now, though, I'm trying to slow down.. It's the end of the semester, and instead of things getting insane, I'm attempting to let them slowly peter out, keeping close track of my projects so that I can start getting enough sleep. I need to find an easier and cheaper way of getting good nutrition. It's kind of absurd at this point... We go out to eat once or twice a week, and we'll occasionally substitute one of my healthy suppers for a pizza when I can't muster up the energy to cook.. I'm starting to crave sweets and cheese and salt.. I'm really out of balance!!

This is kind of silly, but it's important for me to get back in shape, or at least to my normal self, by Christmas.

Ugh, things are just too exhausting right now.. I can't wait for this semester to end!!

    Yes, stress is bad and hard to avoid at times. Hopefully, you can squeeze some de-stressing activities into your schedule. It is so important and so worth it! Good luck!

    I'm in school too. Two weeks until my final and I can't wait! Good job listening to your body. And by the way, I absolutely love the background for your spark page!

    Stress can be very destructive to our bodies, it's good that you recognize what it's been doing.

    Have you considered crock pot meals? They are super easy and great for those that are short on time. There are endless recipes on here for healthy options, check them out!
