Don't wait, just don't do as much. Try getting little bits of exercise in. Something as small as walking for 10 minutes 2 or 3 times a day will make a difference in your habits but also in how you feel. Exercise helps improve energy and focus!

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.

Do what you can when you can. A little is better than nothing. This is not about a DIET... it is a lifestyle change and your life is NOW... it has already started.... it does NOT start when school ends. The summer is a great time to take care of yourself, do more towards getting healthy but it is not JUST a summer thing. You have to be able to keep it up 12 months a year.... including school ending and back to school.

Hang in there... you could be me... Our last day is not until June 26!!

love and peace, Ann

If you are overwhelmed at work, and then try to do something else that will overwhelm you, you won't do well at either. Depending on how far away your summer is (mine starts next week), I would wait until I could have the time to do things effectively. Good luck with whatever you decide!

I believe in taking a positive attitude toward the world. My hope still is to leave the world a little bit better than when I got here.

I did that. I waited until summer, and I regret it. I understand totally how you are feeling. At the end of the school year I was overwhelmed with end of the year stuff and my stepson's graduation and party! I didn't have a spare minute to breathe!!!

I know it's probably terrible, but with these last two weeks feeling so hectic, I have no motivation (or want to take the time) to eat healthy and exercise. I know I should but part of me thinks I should just wait til Summer since it's so soon and then I can put 100% into it.

So what do you do to find motivation? Or am I just being silly/talking myself out of something I know I should just start working on now?
