I'm doing better today. Went for a long walk with Ronan. As the semester is winding down, I'm finding I' in more and more need of some kind of therapy. I feel beaten down by school and it is affecting my whole life. Admittedly this is my first semester back full time but I know now I need new strategies in order to go through with 3 more years of this. I'm hoping to have a better work system, rather than my papers spread over the couch. I'm also going to be trying to get a new gym. The one I'm looking at is Fitness 19. I've spoken with some people who go to my local gym and they say its great. Clean, friendly people, helpful staff, and a good child care area for my son to go into while I take that Mommy time and work of some stress. I'm thinking of all of these things I really want to do and wondering if I'll be able to actually do them. Monetary problems plus the get up and go (which I think would be great for us to not completely fall out of our school time routine), I'm really going to be juggling to get this stuff done if I want to be more successful in my weight loss goal.
Speaking of which, I took a quiz that told me that thinking my weight loss will radically change other areas of my life was a bad way to think. I find that I have to disagree (sorry). If I could loose the 80lbs or so that I'm being told is my ideal BMI/weight, my knee problems will lessen as will the pain I feel in my trunk and legs. My MS will be better in control as I will be less likely to get sick. I know my energy will go up which will help me keep up with my speed demon. For me, I really think a lot hinges on my weight loss. Finding out if I have the will power to do this, I feel, is indicative of how determined I am in other areas.
Have a great week.
