I feel horrible for not sticking with spark people that much. I have been tracking workouts, but no food since September. I suck! There are quite a few excuses- grad school, new job, trying to get sleep. Now that I am kind of getting used to my crazy schedule (which, by the way, is never consistent!) I am going to try my hardest to be more consistent on spark people. I have not lost ANY weight since my last post in September, but, I have not gained any either, which is quite the accomplishment considering all the stress, and holidays I have been through. I am starting my second semester of grad school next week, and I am pretty excited for it. My first semester went very well, met awesome people, had awesome professors, and got awesome grades (two A's and a B), So I am hoping this semester will be as great as the first. Work has just been stressful, It is a very unpredictable job, the parents and teachers I interact with are never on the same page with me or the services I am providing to their child...I work with Autistic children, BTW. I am a TSS (therapeutic support staff) I pretty much help children socialize, or work on impulse control in the home or school. I love it despite the stressfulness. I get to see progress and know that I was a major part of that, however, I will probably be looking for a new job for September. We will see. I hope all of you who read my posts and follow me are doing well and have had a great holiday season!

I ALMOST FORGOT...Andrew (boyfriend) got a puppy...a Chow Chow named General Chow (playing off of General Tsaos chicken, look up the history of Chow Chows and you will understand the joke) We call her Genny....Here is a pic of the day we got her (Late October) and a more recent picture!

    Genny's so cute!

    Glad to hear that your first semester went so well! It's always stressful in the beginning, but you settle into a bit more of a groove by second year. And then after the third (when you're overdue on finishing), you become slightly bitter and need to read "How to Survive my Stupid Stupid Decision to go to Grad School". It helps one to smile & laugh about it all. haha

    Welcome back & I hope that you're able to refocus on your personal goals!
