Coasting, coasting, slight veer off track, and I'm back in it

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted a blog, holy moly.
A lot has changed since then, I suppose. I've started working at the restaurant where I worked in high school, and as of two weeks ago, I also work the front desk at my gym. It SOUNDS great (and it is, actually) but it sucks my time away like you wouldn't believe. Up til now, I was doing my New Rule of LIfting for Women routine 3x/week and doing Zumba/Kickboxing/Spinning 6x/week. I lovedddd that - mostly because I could basically eat whatever I wanted haha.
But yeah, starting at the gym put me at 60 hours worked last week...which meant I worked out 2, maybe 3 times. I felt miserable. I was tired and hungry and I'd go all day without eating and then binge at night and it was just no bueno all around.
BUT, I've had a couple really good days in a row. I'm back on track with my lifting routine, I'm planning some meals in advance so I don't get stuck eating convenience foods/binging at night, and I'm trying to drink more water - I've been living on coffee.
I'm sure in the week and a half, two weeks that I was off track my body didn't change DRAMATICALLY, but getting back into a good place has reminded me that if I were to really buckle down and FOCUS, I could look freaking incredible. I've been stuck on a mindset of "good enough!," and that's fine for a while, but I'd like to really get myself into gear and actually see real, tangible results.
I haven't weighed myself in ages - maybe since August? - but I know I'm stil on the right track because these days, I'm wearing a size 0 or 2 pants/skirts/dresses and XS or S tops. And that's awesome, but when I look at myself I don't see "XS" as being like...correct. Maybe it's just because I've got a medium frame? I just see other women and they're so tiny and I know I'm not fat by any means, but I don't think I'm THAT small.
So yeah, I'm working on getting THAT small because I know I can. It's gonna be awesome. I just need to get my head back in it.
