September just was not my month for making healthy choices. This is actually my first time even logging into Sparkpeople for two weeks. It has been such a crazy, stressful month and I just feel hungry all of the time. I've been eating way too much.
I'm trying to get back on track, but I know it'll be hard. October doesn't appear to be any less stressful. I'm going to try my best though!
Basically, the main reason I stopped logging on was because on the 13th, I was assigned a huge project in my education class. My group just happened to be group one, so we only had a week to create a lesson plan to teach the class about a subject in our book. Of course, my group wasn't very helpful and I ended up doing most of the work. (I just LOVE group work...) I literally spent every second I could on the power point and still tried to get in four hours of practicing, an hour on piano, and get all my other homework done.
I did it, but it took a lot out of me. My professor knew right away that I had done most of the work (she calls me her "stellar student" haha) and gave me full credit even though the presentation itself (which my group did) was horrible. (obviously because they didn't really know the material...because I did it.)
I'm also volunteering at three places now.
I'm excited about all of them, but there is one that I am extremely excited for.
I am starting to teach kids at the Family Shelter how to read music and then I will be directing a Holiday Concert for them. It will be tons of work to prepare for it, because I'm in charge of everything, but I'm still excited!
Anyways, even though I'm doing all of these things, I don't want to give up on my goal. I'm going to try harder. I'm going to track my food and log in everyday!
My recital is just around the corner and I'm going to look great for it!
