Pushing through the last 3 weeks of my university career!
Sunday, March 22, 2009
In just 3 weeks I will have my 4 year BSc honor degree! Hard to believe! Come April 14th I will be FREE until Sept 7th! That gives me nearly 5 months of ME time! Then I will be doing a 1 year teachers college program which is a whole other story with stress/work etc, but not to worry I have tons of time before then.
To start off, I actually can't believe I'm graduating, like seriously it feels like yesterday that I was getting dropped off. I have to say part of me wishes it wasn't ending. Don't get me wrong I had a good time here, I did very well, and I learned a lot, but I definetley did not have the full university experience over my years. I avoided doing a lot of things, and I do regret some of these decisions, however it doesnt mean I can't make the best of what I have left and next year (I'm doing teachers college @ same university).
So these next 3 weeks are going to be a TON of work. I'm already scared that I may miss my workouts or go overboard with the food, but I have planned ahead to hopefully avoid this. I went shopping today and prepared tons of ready to go healthy foods for the week. Fresh cut fruit and veggies for breakfasts and lunches for the week, and I even pre-made dinners for a couple nights, a nice vegetable stew, brocolli/cheese caserole and some bean salad. I also scheduled all my workouts in my planner for the week that way they have to happen lol! I have been spending literally 3-4 hours a day in the gym 6, or most weeks, 7 days of the week, and this is something I won't be able to do over the next 3 weeks. So instead I'm focusing on high intensity training and maybe eliminating some of my walking some days when there isn't the time.
It feels so good to be so close, and I am so happy I am still sticking to this. My weight loss is starting to slow, as expected, but I feel great, have tons of energy and I got my first complement yesterday! Anyways heres to my last 3 weeks, then its ME time for 5 whole months!! yahyahyah!
