Where exactly have I been??

Working. This first week back to school was brutal. Absolutely brutal. It was long and dragged on and seemed like it would never end. Ridiculous... But it's finally over.

Not much happened in the way of exercise this week. Or eating right either. Just surviving the week became my goal. I did make some really interesting discoveries this week though.

I take my breakfast, lunch, and a snack to work with me. Before classes start I eat my breakfast, usually cereal. Then I have lunch around 11:30, though sometimes it's as early as 10:30 or as late as 12:30. By the time 2:30 rolls around I'm ready for my snack - an apple with peanut butter. Then I come home and usually much on nuts or something until dinner. All this week I have not had dessert so that has been good. I find that I need a specific balance for my lunch or else things go haywire. One day I had a salad with a chicken thigh and ranch dressing that seemed fine at the time, but after I ate my snack at 2:3…

It's all in the attitude

Last night was prom night. I was not looking forward to going. I did not have a dress and I put off buying one until yesterday. For the entire 2 weeks of break I had a bad attitude about the prom and I was not going to let it go. In the back of my mind I thought I might be able to get out of it. But yesterday dawned and the prom loomed and I had no decent excuse not to go. So while I was planning my day yesterday I decided to change my attitude. I could dread it and not want to do it and make myself miserable all day over it, or I could just bite the bullet and accept that I was going to the prom. So I accepted it, put the prep into my plan for yesterday and got on with my life. What a difference that made. I had a great day yesterday. I got a lot accomplished and I had a decent time at the prom. It was boring - those things generally are - put the time went by fast and before I knew it it was time to go home. So not a bad night at all.

I'm facing a similar situation…
