Reality

Monday, February 06, 2012

Well, it has hit. And as hard as I knew it would. Reality has sunk in.

Grad School. Full-time job. Regular runs. Huge projects that feel over my head. Decision-making evaluations for people who need answers. Motherhood. Wifedom! GRAD SCHOOL. Laundry. Cooking. Cleaning. GRAD SCHOOL. DID I MENTION GRAD SCHOOL.

Everything is all fun and games until GRAD SCHOOL is back in session. What the heck is the DEAL with that? Why do I putter along so well, make AWESOME changes, and start back to school for my second semester and immediately start to lose my everloving MIND again???

Sheesh-a-mighty. Somebody call the WAAAAAMBULANCE!!!

Seriously, it seems like that one thing is THE THING that tips my scale from sane to insane. That last straw. The teeny pea under my mattress. It's so weird. How can I do so well until it starts back? Maybe it's a mental thing and I just need to wrap my tiny pea-brain around it and dominate this.

So far, I have been keeping up with everything. Well, except SparkPeople. :( I hate that my Spark time has had to be the thing to go. But anytime I had to be on the computer before is now spent on Discussion Boards, Quizzes, and writing. So, it's just pretty much gone. Thank God for everything I've learned in the last month and a half from it! Especially the way I mentally count calories all day and have been maintaining very well for the past week. I just automatically know how much the things I normally eat "cost" me and even when I go to eat something out of the ordinary, I look it up really quick and make sure it's not a bad decision. I even had a SALAD for supper tonight! :) Homemade with GRILLED chicken, no less. WOOT WOOT!

Exercise is still on point. Runs have not been sacrificed yet. I'm in my 3rd week of Ripped in 30 and BOY HOWDY did Killian kick it up another notch. Did I just right Killian???? I honest to goodness just wrote that on accident. Shoot, that HAD to be a Freudian slip! HAHA!

Also, this weekend marked 30 whole days totally completely Gluten Free (so far as I know!!) and I feel AWESOME in that respect. I am so proud of my progress. This is NOT going to be something I go back on. It's great to know I have my GF support group on here whenever I need them.

So, even though I am super busy, a little stressed, and have next to NO time for you awesome SparkBuddies, I am so happy to say that I am plugging away, keeping up, and giving it my ALL. Committed. Whole-Heartedly IN. Doing my BEST. And I'm gonna KEEP ON.

Night Night, Ladies! Love you all... Megon
