That is always my worry, too. I do so well when I'm on a break from work (I teach), but when I go back to work, I have a hard time because of time. I have to talk myself into getting up early enough in the morning to get a workout in because by the time I come home at the end of the day, I'm exhausted! I also need to do a better job of planning my meals out rather than having to grab what's quickest. I'm hoping to set little goals for myself each week and try to take it day by day.
I start winter term tomorrow too! Usually, I let myself use food as not only a means of procrastination, but also as a way to cope with the stress of the fact that I've procrastinated after it's been done. My goal for this term to help me get through this is to not procrastinate at all! I don't have problems keeping up with my exercise, as there's a gym for me to use, but the problem for me has been the food. I used to think that I would only be able to continue when the stress is gone from my life, but the reality is, I need to learn to work with the stress, as I don't think there will be a time when my life will be completely stress free. This is going to be a challenge.
We can do it!

I am starting back to college tomorrow. Going to have to figure out how to manage this lifestyle along with a bussier one. I am sure I can do it, as long as I plan ahead.
