It has been a whole month since I blogged. Where does the time go...??

OMG. Just was reading my reports after realizing I am at my highest weight ever (260.2 at the start of TOM) and I have gained damn near 20 pounds since May!! What the hell?!?

Now I am just pissed. At myself. At my body. At this stupid website for keeping track of that. How did I let this happen?

This is a sad, sad graph.

Well. I can't change today, but I can make myself better. I did ask for a lot of workout stuff for Christmas (some new workout duds, a digital food scale and new measuring cups). Due to my excessive poor-ness, I cannot buy junky snacks for finals week, so that is a plus. While I won't really be able to work out between Thursday to next Thursday, I am buying 30 Day Shred and a set of weights on 12/14 and will do the program over my break! I figured that would really keep me active over break - since I don't have a gym at home there. I am also going to be super diligent about my tracking. I won't have my scale for the whole month so it will be refreshing to come back and see changes.

I was told the spring workout schedule should be posted in the next two weeks so I can start looking at my schedule for work and what-not.

In great news, I am happy to report that for the first time since starting vet school, I am going into my finals with straight B's. Usually I have one or two C's mixed in which adds a lot of pressure to finals. I am pressured to keep my grades, but there is pretty much no way I can fail any of my classes which is great!

And my personal study motivation for the next week and a half :)

    I wish it burned calories just to watch those infomercials! I was watching "Insanity" last night, no way in HELL would I try it... Talk about bruises, strains, & sprains!

Hang in there, end of semester is in sight. I would never want to put myself through that ordeal again.

    Yup, weight gain sucks! No getting around that. I know that type of anger you mention ... it's unnerving to see the high numbers on the scale.
For the positives,
Love your Christmas wish list ... great items to aid you in your journey!
Give us an update on the 30 day shred program and how you feel about it. Strength training will aid you more than cardio in times like these. I'm trying so very hard to put that into practice in my own life.
Great job on the straight B's! YAY - go you!
Loving your study motivation photo too. YUMMY.

Thanks for the update.

Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and realize that YOU ARE WORTH THE EFFORT!

We all fall off the wagon at some point, and have to reevaluate our strategies. It makes us stronger in the long run.
