Busy days

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

Life has been busy with the start of grad school and still working full-time. I had to sacrifice my usual active hobbies like bowling. So I've been walking and doing my Insanity workouts. Consistency is still an issue but I have new motivators - aching bum from sitting in school desks and numb brain. Seems exercise is the only thing that makes me feel normal. After a walk or workout, I can think clearly and feel energized.

I've been planning meals better since I don't have time to cook like before. On Sundays, I cook 3-4 healthy meals. I haven't spent as much time and money on fast food with this change.

I don't sign on as often so I don't record my nutrition or fitness as much but I'm glad I still have this resource to keep me motivated.

    Good job keeping with your exercising and changing to healthier eating. I like that you feel 'normal and energized' when you do get your exercise in. That's how it should be :D

    Do you have a crockpot? Mine comes in handy when I don't always have time to cook.

    You sound a lot like I did last year this time. It will get easier.

    I know making the healthy meals ahead of time and putting them in the fridge or freezer helped save me time and money. I wore a pedometer and would walk laps between classes or before class started.

    Good luck with you courses this semester.
