It is time

I'm still in the adjusting phase of returning to school. I come home and some nights I'm really, really tired, other nights I have energy. Adjusting. I have been keeping my eating under control though. 10-grain cereal for breakfast, salad with a meat for lunch, going light on dinner, I'm pleased with my eating. I don't feel stuffed or bloated, I just feel satisfied. So I'm really good on the eating front. Now the exercise.

I ride my bike everyday - to the bus, to school, to the bus, then home. I'm getting about an hour of bike riding in over the course of the day. That's good. But not good enough. My biking totals about 8 miles a day - not very much at all. I need to do more. I planned on doing 10 minute morning workouts last week but somehow that fell by the wayside. I get my things ready the night before and definitely have 10 minutes in the morning so I really have no excuse at all. I'm using stupid excuses. I know one that crossed my mind this week was that I would have to get all dressed just to do 10 minutes of exercise then get undressed to shower and get ready. Dumb, dumb, dumb excuse. So for this week I am going to force myself to work out 10 minutes in the mornings. I have a super easy, quick routine planned out and that's where I'm going to start.

I started tracking my food yesterday and am going to continue to do that. So that's it. Adjusting. Working in working out. Things are clicking along.
