Well, my original goal? I am doing better on stress management, but I never bought a stress ball. I know, lame. However, what I ended up doing was creating a schedule and that really cut down on the stress issues I was having. I had everything planned out according to days. This greatly helped me reduce my stress.

I also started chewing sugar free gum while studying. I like to consume while my brain works hard. That also helped (as long as the gum flavor lasted a long time) the stress level. I'm doing something with a part of my body.

I do have to motivate myself to keep to my schedule, as well as to continue to exercise. I have to remind myself why I am doing the things that I am doing. Give myself a drop of panic to get me moving again, or look at that sexy outfit I want to fit in and really look hot wearing instead of like a fat girl trying to look hot. Yick.

Here's my favorite quote on motivation.

"People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing- that's why we recommend it daily." - Zig Ziglar, motivational speaker
