Hello Lovely Readers!

I hope this post finds you well. It's been a while, hasn't it? I've been buried under a pile of books and haven't seen the light of day most of the semester. (Okay, that's an exaggeration, I have been out with the horses.) I haven't had much of a social life and this semester has proved to be a challenge. It seemed like one small tragedy after another. I've been doing my best to stay grounded and focused, but I've not devoted as much time to fitness as I would have liked.

I've started small over the TG break, by just getting out and hiking. I've also begun a new regimen of racing the horses. And, by this I mean, I try to outrun them on the ground. I never win, but I'm always out of breath and smiling by the end of it.

I weighed myself for the first time in about 9 months. I was not pleased with the results, yet people seem to scoff at me, when I bitch about the weight I've gained. I guess that I'm hiding it well?

Anyways, I'm going to be heading home to Texas over break and am excited about having a little me time.

My goal for winter break is to drop about 10lbs. I want to do this by walking and eating more veggies and fruits. I've been carb loading with the stress of things.

Ironically, I think I've gained sympathy weight with my friends who are being treated for cancer. I seem to get fatter the skinnier that they get. 8-/

Much love and light to everyone! Hit it hard this week!

    Thank you. You're right, it is great stress relief. And, I want to make it more of a priority. So far, getting out for hikes with my girlfriends has been awesome.

    Thank you for your support!

    Sorry life has been hard for you. Remember exercise is a great stress release, but I know the challenge of finding the time to do it. A wise friend once told me "you can't care for others if you aren't caring for yourself." Hope you have a restful time over the holidays (after finals, i am guessing.0
