"Happy Thanksgiving to my favorite Owl."

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Aww. I need to be thankful for the wonderful support system I have. Between my family, friends, former teachers, RAs...I truly am lucky.

Just a small update tonight as I consider the past few days...

I went to the gym yesterday, for the first time in nearly a week. I burned 1000+ calories (double workout), but it was our "College Day" and I ended up consuming much more than that. Hopefully it balanced out.

Today was sort of the same scenario. I went to the gym in the morning and burned ~450 calories on the elliptical, and then did some light weights. Then I power-walked 4+ miles with my aunt at a nearby park. Again, I had more to eat than preferable - but at least I'm working out again.

My roommate wants to start working out consistently, so we might actually serve as good motivation for each other. Here's hoping!

I'm going to ponder some concrete goals and health/improvement benchmarks. Though I don't feel as great as I should, I have made progress. I'm capable of making even more.

I just have to be thankful for who I am, where I'm at, what I have been is not nearly as terrible as I sometimes pretend.

    Sounds like you are doing a great job of keeping things in perspective. When I was in college I never made time for fitness, and 30 years later still trying to get my act together. If you can figure it out now and keep fitness activities in your schedule, you are going to be so much better off! Great blog, thanks!

    Very cool that you are choosing to take care of yourself like this - unlike me when I was in college! Keep going!
