Congratulations to you for trying to do both at once! That is so hard to do, I am wishing you the best! I had a particularly challenging fall semester and over finals and holidays I gained some weight. I am hoping that during the break I can establish good/better habits so that when the spring semester starts in earnest I wont backslide again.

But I will share something from another post that I found really helpful. Someone said that the difference between a healthy person and an unhealthy person is that a healthy person will fail, and reexamine, and try again. And an unhealthy person won't. It's all about constant checking. So if you have a few weeks of crazy-time, you just try again. And if anyone wants to be my sparkbuddy, I'm looking for people to help keep me on track! I am new to this site, but really liking it so far...

Hello out there! I'm a grad student in the final months of my PhD in Australia. I may be in the final months, but I still have so much work to do! The trouble is, that I'm so deenergised and stressed after 3 years of this project, that I can't get enough work done. I've put on lots of weight over the course of the project, and I've realised recently that it's really holding me back from finishing. I just don't have the confidence to get it over with.

So I've restarted my spark quest (after a year or so of being away) and am trying to attack both issues at once. I think it's the only way. Am glad to have found a team of people that are going through similar experiences. Looking forward to getting back on track - with my project AND my health.
