Mid-week Update Blog

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

I think blogging really has been helping me stay focused lately, so here's another semi-pointless, rambly blog!

I think I am doing really well this week. I fought off the urge to order delivery AGAIN last night by looking at the day-before-last's blog. It really did work.. when faced with a blog containing that much optimism and satisfaction, it was a no-brainer for me that I needed to do it again in order to feel that way again. I am super proud of myself, and I plan to make today the third day in the streak of healthy home cooking with this lovely recipe for salmon with summer tomato salsa: recipes.sparkpeop

.

Also, today is gym day. I think I might just walk around the outdoor track, because I am still feeling sore in several areas from the swim last weekend. When I get home, I plan to work my abs, obliques, and biceps (the only muscles that aren't sore). After that, it's time for some relaxing yoga and stretching.

I am still busy with school... I have 8-9 sessions per week, each of which require 3 or 4 hours of study/preparation. However, whereas it used to feel overwhelming, it is now feeling doable; maybe I am just used to it by now, or maybe the improved physical activity and nutrition are just helping me have a more positive outlook on everything. Either way, it needs done, and I will do it, but I don't think I need to stress about it, so I won't.

I feel smaller. I think I am losing weight. I have no idea, because I put the scale away, but when I woke up today my neck and collarbone area felt awfully small compared to the previous few days.... it's a good sign, and it is motivating me to work harder. Putting the scale away for a few weeks was probably the best decision I've made for my health in a long while. I actually asked my bf to hide it so I wouldn't be tempted to sneak a peak until my designated weigh-in day.

That's all for now.. back to studying...Oh, and congrats, Dune Riders, for winning the challenge points this week!
