Haven't fallen off, but the wagon wheels are getting squeeky
Sunday, July 31, 2011
The past few days have been a whirlwind of social engagements and obligations to parents. I haven't really been able to get a handle on my food in the past three days, but I HAVE still been exercising.
When it comes to the "stress busting" challenge, my biggest stressor is waiting for the future to arrive. I'm studying abroad and I'm really excited. The thing is, I haven't exactly raised all the appropriate funds. I work two very poor paying jobs during the semester and I get a refund check from the school, but the amount I get paid and what's in the check varies greatly. I've created my budget based on past paychecks, and I worry sometimes that I won't be able to make enough to pay for my tuition at my host institution! Stressful to the MAX!
I go back to school this upcoming Saturday, and I'm downloading podcasts to listen to during the drive. Luckily, getting all my belongings together constitutes a great workout!
I need to learn to be patient with my body and the changes it's trying to make. Deep breaths.
