Taking the Summer Off

Friday, April 27, 2012

I am nearing the end of a stressful semester of school. This semester has taken me away from the gym and made my evening life way too difficult. I have had to juggle making dinner, helping my daughter with her homework, and doing my own homework. I have started to take control of my eating again. I am doing well with the exception of the occasional hiccup here and there. Now, I am dying to get back in the gym. I miss my strength training and water aerobics. Summer semesters are a bit shorter, so you have to cram more work into less weeks. Considering how I feel right now, I'm not so sure that I want to take that on. I'd much rather settle back into taking care of my body and health. I can tell that I am way more stressed now than I was when I was exercising. My daughter and I don't really get quality time until the weekends and that bums her out. I think I'm going to take the Summer off and get back to taking care of me and having fun with my mini-me. I'll see school again in the Fall.

    Yes sometimes you just need a mental break from school and work (but unfortunately most of us don't have the financial resources to take the summer off work - but wouldn't that be nice). Education is great but the most important things are you and your family.
