Everyday I ask myself "What have I gotten myself into?!" I am a single mother of a very bright 5 year old who keeps me on my toes, I work full-time as a 5th grade teacher, and I recently began working on my doctoral degree. I also need to loose about 50lbs! Lately, I have been struggling to get my workouts in like I should and struggling worse trying to eat the way I should. I don't want to give up on my weight-loss goals because I know this is something I really want to do. Etch time I read a new chapter in The Spark, I get excited and even more motivated about my weight-loss journey. But lately I have been spending countless hours working on homework. I also try to spend some quality time with my baby. I try to cherish every moment we have together. But there doesn't seem to be enough hours in a day to get everything completed that I need to do. My summer is over. I'll be returning to work on July 30th and I haven't gotten a schedule together yet. How am I going to be able to handle all of this? Have I bitten off more than I can chew? I have done this several times before (3 masters degrees), but I was not trying to focus so intently on my weightloss. I have 2 weeks to get a good strong schedule together so that I will be able to do everything on my agenda and maintain healthy eating habits.
