I think your boss is completely correct. I'm in the same place you are. I work terrible hours, go to school, and never though that I could actually do this because of all the excuses I make for myself.
For example, tonight I worked 8pm to 12:30AM, then went out with friends. Tomorrow I work 6pm to 12:30 AM, and my job doesn't allow for breaks. I mean, now I'm glad I don't work a job where I sit around all day, but still. If I wear the wrong shoes, for example, work a nine hour shift, standing and moving around the whole time- I would have NO desire to work out after.
But it's all about moderation... or so I hear. See, I went from eating out almost every meal to not eating fast food at all. I haven't had fast food in almost 2 weeks... unless you count Jason's Deli. But even then, I have the turkey wrap which is less than 400 calories.
I don't go to the gym all the time. I go, stretch, do cardio for 30 to 45 minutes, stretch again, and go home. Plus, I feel BETTER at the end of it. But I have done that every day for almost two weeks as well. Except sundays, because my community center is closed.
What sorority are you in, if you don't mind me being nosy. I'm a KKG.
It's great that you already know the issues you have, so that you know exactly what you need to work on. It's also great that you've already faced some of your sugar demons (giving up soda is hard!). Instead of worrying so much on your bad days, focus on what you've already accomplished. You're making progress, so don't beat yourself up. You WILL do it!
