Starting over and over and over...
Monday, June 10, 2013
I refreshed my page to reflect where I am now.
I'm finished with 1 year of law school. I've gained back some of the weight I lost (~7 lbs.). I will be working two jobs for the rest of the summer starting tomorrow. I'm still able to run 6 miles without too much trouble. My speed is up from last year, despite intermittent running throughout the year. I exercised, on average, 3.5 days per week during this school year. I walked to and from class every day. I always take the stairs. I ate out a lot. I drank more beer. I sat for hours on end reading and studying.
I will be back on a routine starting tomorrow with job number 2. I will be working downtown. I have a car! I'm thinking of getting a gym membership other than the school's (it's inconvenient, constantly busy, and they keep closing it for construction and renovation). I'm moving in August. I will have a roommate who cooks a lot. I will live closer to school, so I can walk home easily for meals. I will have an externship across town 2 days per week.
All in all, I'm not thrilled, but I'm satisfied with the past school year. I maintained a weak, but consistent workout schedule and managed to not gain too much weight. My boyfriend also had an extremely busy year, but he is now an inspiration in getting his health back on track. I'm trying to follow his excellent example. (He also has to be in shape for his job, so that's extra motivation for both of us.) It was a very tough year mentally and financially, which took it's toll on me physically, but it was also a happy year. I'm excited for (hopefully) a little more stability, balance, and health.
