“Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest—thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the under wood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated.”

I am feeling a lot better emotionally than I was this past weekend. YES I suck at Japanese because I took a year off; YES I am studying my butt off; YES I am getting better, and YES I will bring my grades up soon enough. It's okay to suck a little bit for now :) I will be awesome again in a few weeks!

I am sort of taking a few days off of my regularly scheduled program for the sake of aforementioned studying... If I grab a workout here or there good job, but no strict schedule just yet, until I catch up. Even so, I am trying to eat intuitively and not too much ... making good choices, including cooking stuff in the crock pot, and salads from the market.

Gambarimasu yo!

    Small steps is what keeps the journey going! Don't put too many harsh goals on yourself and just go with the flow. Know your limitations! Right now the best thing you can do is keep mindful of your eating. Even if you don't work out too much right now, if you watch your eating, you'll see results! emoticon emoticon

    I love that quote.

    Life happens and it's all about learning how to deal with that natural ebb and flow. You can do it! Sounds like you have a plan which can be the hardest part.
