Now that the holidays are over and life is getting back to normal I should probably get back on some sort of routine. Sleeping in and enjoying time away from work and school has been really nice but it is certainly time to get some semblance of normal back . School starts again January 9th and I am really looking forward to classes. Last semester showed me where I excel and where I need work ( otherwise known as getting my ass out of bed and to class on time).
With that being said I am so excited about the new year. It sounds very cliche for me to talk about January being a clean slate and a fresh start but it just feels like it is this year. My relationship with Eric is getting stronger, friendships are more meaningful and I am learning how to make better, more mindful choices for health and exercise. I was talking to Natasha earlier today over breakfast ( pancakes for the win) and I was telling her how frustrated I was that I haven’t already lost 50 lbs. In my mind eating healthy for 5 days should equal 50 lbs of weight loss. We all know its not actually that easy to lose the weight, but it just shows how impatient I can be. Part of respecting my body this year is all about patience. I need to let these healthy changes add up. Eventually the weight will come off, my cardio will be improved and I will be able to fit into my skinny jeans.
