Miles To Go

Sunday, August 11, 2013

I'm sorry I haven't been around much. There's been a lot more going on in my life now that I've started going back to school, so it's been really difficult keeping up with everything. I'm trying, but I can't promise anything.

The summer semester ended last week, and I actually managed to pull of an A in math, despite the fact that math is far and away from being my best subject. The last two weeks before finals hit I didn't get as much time to exercise and I had been eating more, but I didn't see too much change in my weight for better or worse.

I still have not managed to get back in the calorie counting mindset, despite my best efforts. Not that I'm not giving up, mind you. I have been exercising more this week to try and make up for it. Surprisingly the increase from a half hour to an hour wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. In fact, it's actually been kind of fun. I found this new podcast to listen to while I exercise, so that's been pretty great.

I didn't exercise today, because we spent most of the day wandering around various stores. I had to buy some new clothes. A new pair of tennis shoes since mine are worn out, a sports bra that actually offers some support, and a couple of pairs of shorts in a smaller size, because mine have actually gotten to the point where they fall off while I walk.

It was actually pretty funny, because I accidentally picked up a pair of shorts that were a size 8 thinking they were 14s. You can imagine my horror when I tried them on and could barely get them buttoned. Then of course I was really proud of the fact that I could get them on at all when I checked the tag and realized my mistake, like being able to squeeze into a pair of pants you should under no circumstances ever wear is a giant accomplishment, lol.

Anyway, it was a fun day. Things are still going pretty well all things considered. Fall classes start on the 19th, so hopefully that doesn't throw me off too horribly. Summer didn't, so I can't imagine this will be too much worse. *Fingers crossed*

Now if I could just get back on track calorie wise, everything will be aces.

    Hey, I think you're doing great. You have a full schedule, got an A in math (a major achievement in my book!), are still getting your exercise in, and have been able to buy smaller sizes! emoticon
