So as many or none of you (well at least one of you) knows, I am currently in the process of finishing up my doctoral dissertation. The last couple weeks I have retracted from all activities except for preparing my work in order to finish my writing, which includes tracking my food and exercise. Obviously, finishing something like a doctorate should come above all other activities, however, i think not sparking was much more of an excuse to self indulge to help deal with my stress. Luckily, I havent "gone off the rails" so to speak, though I have been eating a little extra and exercising a little less. Well, this morning I considered just getting some donuts to go with my morning coffee, and decided "enough is enough!" I might not have time for the next few days to work in my regular exercise routine, but i certainly have time to NOT eat a donut. So I am back to tracking, I have been walking every day, and I look forward to a good long workout after I submit my draft. Happy sparkling everyone!
