Getting Back in the Game

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Wow, I haven't been up here in a while. I do deeply apologize for that. This month has been absolutely crazy and the crazy isn't even over yet. That's what happens when you're in college during exam time. I haven't worked out in three weeks, my dietary habits have turned horrendous. I just can't believe that in spite of all that, I haven't really gained any significant weight! But I also noticed during this time of horrible choices, that it began to affect other areas of my life. Because I stopped exercising, any help it gave with my depressive symptoms stopped, so my depression plummeted, I haven't been able to think clearly, I've been absolutely sore due to the built up stress on my body, and I've lost pretty much all muscle tone that I had in my arms, abs, and thighs. The only reason I even have a little muscle tone in my legs, is because I have to walk to get anywhere on or off campus. Even though this last week of college is going to be the busiest of my life, I know that if I don't get back in the game of taking care of myself, then I will most certainly not make it. So, with that being said, I'm going to get dressed, get some breakfast, and take a one-quarter mile walking lap around the school before hitting the shower and then the books. I just wish I had woken up just a little bit earlier... but at least for once I slept!
