Good luck on your first semester! My first semester was so busy and overwhelming that I gained 15 pounds. I also start tomorrow but over the summer I worked a new plan of action so the story doesn't repeat. I totally changed my eating habits and go 6 days a week to the gym. Hopefully i can keep it up!

Good Luck again!

My first day of class is August 27. I am a 1L, so I have orientation the week before. As a 1L, I obviously have no idea the world of terror and hard work that's in front of me.

So, I have set some very small goals for the first semester--I have it set at very very slow weight loss, but honestly, I'll be thrilled if I don't gain. Bright spots: I don't have a car, so I will walk at least 20 mins each day from my apartment to the school. So that's something. I also have my own place, so the kitchen is all mine and food is up to me (first time I'm living without roommates!). I don't live very far from the gym and I live just off some awesome running trails, so I'm hoping to keep going with my exercise. I'm really aiming for balance and health.

If I can do it my first year of law school, I think I will be able to do it through just about anything. Here's hoping!

My first day of class is Aug 20th but I will be on campus the week before that for orientation as a mentor. I'm starting my third year. I am really happy with my schedule because I get out of class by 3pm on two out of three days of class. My plan is to run the track on my lunch hour on Mondays, and the days I get out at 3pm I'll run after class on the track. I'm lucky at Pepperdine to have a track just down the hill from the law school campus that has a beautiful ocean view. No excuses of "it's dark out" or "don't have time." I also plan to make a salad for every day of school on Sundays and take my lunch with me so I don't make a bad lunch choice (free pizza!). I'm also going to keep my Sat/Sun yoga date with my bestie. When you have to meet someone at yoga it helps make you go, and then we study after yoga at a near by coffee shop so we don't feel too bad about spending 1'30" doing yoga!

My first day of classes isn't until Aug 31st so I'm gonna squeeze as much out of my summer as I can! I'm not mentally ready to get back to school yet. I'm still in Kenya for another 2 days and when I get back to New York, we have on campus interviews, Moot Court Board orientation and a retreat for my scholarship. I'm gonna go on a short vacation w/ the beau to relax a bit before the mayhem begins.

I think my plan for this semester is to stay active on Spark and really watch my eating. I've gotten into a pretty good workout routine of running and circuit training over the past couple months so I'm not too worried about exercise. I AM however worried about all the food temptation in New York (pizza, bagels, really good vegetarian good, etc). I want to finally reach my goal weight this fall and sail into New Years just maintaining my weight. I'm going to track my food and aim for at least 5 days a week of cardio (1 hour each time).

i really want to make short workouts a part of my daily schedule, and sort out a meal plan for myself before classes start. i'm itching to start class so i can figure out how to stay on top of everything while getting sleep! i'm a bit nervous about finding support at the law school, but i'm going to keep my eyes open.

plus, of course, i'll be putting all your advice into practice!

Hi Group! Some of you have already started back with classes, and some (like me) will be starting next Monday. My co-worker that I have been walking with each night (also a law student), just asked me to help her train for a 5k. I am excited. Tonight was our first night running and she did really well! We also printed out a schedule for a 6 week training program and coordinated times to keep working out during the school year.

I always do a lot better with working out when I have someone to hold me accountable! I am a little worried because I am going to continue working during school (something I did last year), but I am also chief justice for our moot court team and have a lot of administrative responsibilities added to the mix. Additionally, I am taking classes that I am not too thrilled about because they are prevalent to the bar exam. Hopefully I will stay on top of things!

What are you plans to stay on track this semester, and how was your first day/week back?
