Today has been all about prep. Well it actually started Sunday night. I finished laundry, cleaned and vacuumed and bought the necessary groceries for survival. Now your probably rolling your eyes, I am even just typing that sentence out. These are all things that I shouldn’t need a pat on the back for, I promise I’m not asking for one, but I’m really proud of myself.
Rather then start the week off running around like a chicken with its head cut off I was prepared. Per Brittany’s example I hard boiled a dozen eggs and left them in the fridge ready for breakfast and lunches. I cut up veggies and pre bagged fruit slices so I could grab and go. I put a few granola bars in my backpack so I wouldn’t be starving while at school.
So far it’s been working. I get sucked into the temptation of a treat from Second Cup but I am really going to try to avoid the extra calories and money spent. I haven’t stopped at a fast food place on my way home and I have no intention to. My butt is even in bed early so I have a solid 8 hours of sleep. Nothing feels better than being rested for class and work.
The only thing that I want to focus on is the exercise. It has slipped to the wayside as of this last week. I downloaded a new app, GymPact, and I didn’t make my goal for last week and lost five bucks. Talk about motivation to get myself in gear. Even though I haven’t been anywhere near perfect in the gym I’m still trying to not be to hard on myself. Balancing school, work, homework and a social life is challenging. These first few weeks are all about finding that balance and making it work for me.
