Things are going great with school. I will probably make the Dean's list and be invited to Phi Theta Kappa. I am considering changing my major though, to Bachelor of Science in Applied Nutrition specializing in Dietics. I will have to eventually transfer because this school doesn't offer that program, but I will be able to take some courses that are transferable. I would like to eventually further that with an Associates in Applied Science in Fitness Management, another program not offered here. An maybe even go all out and get a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. It will take forever, but maybe one day you will see me on the Dr. Oz show, promoting some magic weight loss miracle that I have invented. Or, I will own a chain of Weight Loss Centers that focus on fitness and nutrition. Something along those lines. With the percentage of overweight and obese people in America, I should make a killing. Ah, I'm such a dreamer.

Trinity is growing every day and is smarter than ever. She is starting to show those terrible two symptoms though.

I am still making progress, very very slowly, with my weight loss efforts. It is extremely hard with all that I have going on. A perk of going to my school is that we have a gym, the downfall is that I don't have time to go to it, and I neglected to pay the activity fee to be able to use it. I'm still walking though, and squeezing in random exercise. I haven't lost much. But I haven't gained any either. I have to get my food situation back on track. I am in a nutrition class, and I am getting down to the science of things. I know what I should be doing, I just don't. I am a stress-eater. I am a convenience eater. I am a perfect example of self sabotage. I love my food fatty, salty, and sugary. In my class I learned that this is normal. I just tend to go a little overboard.

So, my goal now is to try to change my palate. I am not going to be a perfectionist, although I know that does work. I simply don't have the time or energy to write down and count every single calorie and gram of fat, carbs, and protein, how many "servings" of fruits and veggies, and how much water, that I am taking in. And how many minutes, reps, sets, miles, of exercise I do every day. Even if I did have time, I did it that way before, and it got old real quick. I am simply just going to do it. To the best of my ability. Find what gives me results, and go from there.

Alright, my time is up. Things to do, places to go, people to see, and blah blah blah. Have a nice day! And good luck to everyone on their journey!

    Trying to get my tongue to like "whole foods" is a bit challenging!!!! But I figure even little steps help, eventually, all the little choices fill up the bucket!!!! emoticon

    I always wanted to do a nutrition program but I never had my science skills up to snuff. Instead I did a masters in public health. Good luck on your continued success in school!!
