I Can Do This!

Time to get back to work. I feel like I let myself take this week off from focusing, and although I wasn't eating completely as bad as I used to, I wasn't eating crazy well either.

I am DYING to be at 276 by Wednesday, so I'm going to up the workouts & watching what I eat like crazy for the next few days. Right now, I'm definitely on track to be at I just really need to make it happen!!

It's gonna be tough. School & work are slowly starting to get busier...and it's just gonna get worse as the semester goes on. But I can do this--I just know it. I've never been so determined to figure out how to balance everything in my life. I feel like this is the time to learn to juggle things because in a year, I'm not really sure where I'll be...but I could be doing things that are a lot more stressful than what I'm doing now.

I'm determined to graduate in May. There IS no other option at this point. I won't allow it. I need to continue working hard at work to show that I can do this & hope that I can get promoted within the company after graduation. And then the weight just has to happen now because I can't deal with feeling like everyone is judging me on my weight when I walk outside.

Basically, my goals at the moment aren't just about weight--but life too. But, for the first time in a long time, I'm sure of myself. I've never had a mindset like this before and it all just seems so clear to me now. I CAN set my mind to anything I want to do, it just takes some hard work. Nothing comes easy--but the rewards can be wonderful!

I think it's great that you have balanced weight loss goals with other goals that important in your life. I remember being in university back in the day and it being really difficult to balance school, work, a busy social life and fitness. It is a very stressful time! Just remind yourself of why you're doing it and it will happen.

It's the only way to go, in my humble opinion. Weight loss isn't just one thing, it encompasses so much more!
Life, for instance! lol
Good luck!

Balance. Moderation in all things. Its so easy to get out of whack in all areas of your life, not just with your "diet". Dieting is hard work, and balancing a diet with the rest of your life can be even harder. Keep up the good work. YOU CAN DO THIS!!
