The end of the semester is a KILLER. Even when I try to get a little ahead on school work to prepare for "the end" I still feel bombarded.
Good news: Classes end next Thursday.
Bad news: I still have tons of homework and 2 finals to accomplish before that!
BUT - one step at a time. I'll get through it, and I cannot WAIT till I have summer off of class! I don't think I have taken a summer off of classes since I started back to school.
Let's see - updates -
I've been doing more home/gym workouts. Mostly a funds issue - dwindling down to my last few Tuff Girl workouts and then I guess I'll have to take a break from there until I have some money. I don't see this happening soon. You know how I feel about that, so I'm not going to go into it.
However, using my fearless-fitness Leader, Christa (http://bodybybodyology.com/) for inspiration, I am trying my damnedest to keep the workout intensity high.
Here is an example of what I did on Wednesday night after the bobbins were in bed. I dragged the hubby through too. He insists I am trying to kill him:
|4 minute rounds. You continue to oscillate between exercises until 4 min is up.|
Well - it WAS tough. But, WTF, it's SUPPOSED to be tough!!
I'm trying out this new protein:
Taste is good. There is not one SHRED of junk in here. My only issue has been the texture - a little gritty. So, I'm going to experiment this weekend by making it my actual breakfast (instead of plain as a supplement) and adding some other things to it (1/2 banana, maybe some plain yogurt, etc). After my experiments, I will report back!
Some other fun things:
|miserable 3 yr old wanting his Dada and NOT his Mama!|
|85 on my math test! Worked really hard and did not think I had done this well!|
She is digging her own grave.
As soon as she makes it "OK" in her head that she has re-gained 50 some-odd because other bloggers have re-gained - she's doomed. I anticipate the weight will continue to creep on her and she will continue to try crazy diets and make lots of excuses.
I have owned my re-gain. Yes, I have put some weight back on. No, I don't like it - nor do I accept it. I don't care who else re-gains. I WILL NOT BE that person who just accepts it.
I am not doing my best for my weight loss right now. But I am doing my best for my life right now. I will never blame my re-gain on anyone but myself. But I do have one thing to say.
I AM continuing to keep off over 150 lbs.
No, I am not in maintenance, but I refuse to re-gain ANY more weight than I already have. But I feel comfortable being confident in that fact, because there are no excuses or blame passing going on over here.
OK, off my soap box.
Random section of this post:
- I have an audition tomorrow for a part I really want in a summer musical. Wish me luck!
- I am listening to Tori Amos "From the Choirgirl Hotel". Bringing me back to my college days!
- I had a job interview on Wednesday. It sounds boring as shit. I think I'm not into it.
-Hubby and I are planning our summer to make each day of the week a certain theme. "Adventure" Sunday (hike or walk day), "Story-time" Saturday (Library visit), etc. I love the idea and I think the kids will dig it.
