Week 1 of 5% challenge
Friday, April 10, 2015
Tomorrow is weigh-in day for the challenge and I'm not sure I'm looking forward to it. That seems strange to me considering I managed to exercise for at least 10 minutes every day and I drank 8 or more cups of water everyday. What I didn't do was eat very well, especially today. I'm having tons of trouble meeting my goal of 4 or more freggies per day. I'm hoping the good outweighs the bad tomorrow and I'm pleasantly surprised but I'm not holding my breath.
I'd like to think I had a stress free week but my head says otherwise. I had to fight off several headaches this week by taking Advil instead of just meditating and stretching. I know why I have them but I now have no control over the circumstances. I'm trying to get into graduate school and have been chasing after the people I asked for recommendations to send them in for weeks now. I've spoken to the school and they agreed to proceed with my application with only 2 out of 3 of the recommendations only to discover that my transcripts from the community college haven't arrived either. Looks like someone disregarded the address I wrote down and sent them to the wrong campus so I had to make another request to have them sent to the correct place. In the meantime, my application has been put on the wait-list and will probably not be done in time for this fall semester meaning I must wait another year to begin school provided I'm accepted. Makes me want to give up on the dream because I'm not getting any younger and, seriously, who is going to want to hire someone over 50 when they have all those 20 somethings coming out of college with fresh, new ideas.
