Its been so long since I've been on SP....Missed you all! Life is hectic right now and I'm working on finding a balance. So here's the deal...
I just started law school (yay me!) I am so proud of my accomplishment. I'm about a month in and things are crazy. It's a lot different from undergrad. The work is harder and the workload is much heavier. On top of that, I work as well. So i leave my house around 7 in the morning and dont come back home until around 9 pm. Crazy right?
Needless to say, my healthy eating habits that I have worked on have gone out the window, and i barely have time to workout. I try my best, but with my mind and body so tired, at times, i just dont' care.
But i'm realizing that I can't let law school take over my life. I need to take care of myself. So I quit my job to devote my focus on school and myself. And now that I know what law school is about, i feel like i can adjust and manage my time more. And i starting right now, i promise myself to get on SP at least once a day, even for only 5 minutes. Every little bit counts, right?

    emoticon on your accomplishment entering law school. As read your blog I kept thinking with a schedule/work load like that you NEED to eat healthy just to keep going. And what better way to relieve some pressure than some exercise. I usually take walks when over whelmed with just about anything....first it keeps me away from eating everything in sight and second it really does calm down my anxiety. Doesn't have to be a long walk, just keep moving. I would try eating 5/6 small healthy "meals" a day to keep up that energy level.
    Best of luck to you....please post and let us know how things are going. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations on law school! That's huge!

    I wouldn't be too hard on yourself about struggling the past month. Going back to school is a major life change, and it takes time to get into a groove with new schedules, new tasks, new everything.

    I know it seems like there's no time, but try to spend an hour over the weekend dividing up carrots or pretzels or whatever into snack-size Ziplocs, or putting together a big salad that could be split into separate containers for each day. Having that taken care of will probably help not only with your eating, but your stress level too.

    Good luck, and hang in there! If you can get into law school, you can totally do this! :)
