And 10 days later.......


Not that anyone reads this. It's more for me to keep track of life in general.

The last two weeks have been fairly uneventful. The end of the school year is odd. It ramps up in a way and slows down at the same time. I can't explain it, but it is unlike any other job. So the end of the year is within reach. Next week is the last week of teaching and the following week is exams and then pau. That will nice. I teach over the summer at Kamehameha and I'm looking forward to that, but I get a week off in between.

I turned in my final assignments for my classes yesterday. I was so excited to get those done that I sat at this computer for 7 hours yesterday working on them. I never even got fully dressed. I went to Crossfit, came home and showered, and put my night gown on again and sat down. I never got dressed yesterday. But the classes are done. All I have left now is my dissertation. I do have one more class to take but I need approval on my prospectus first and I'm waiting on that. I'm thinking that I may just wait on the class until next quarter just because. It will be nice to have no assignments and the only thing I have to do is work on my premise. I believe that once the prospectus is approved - which should be soon - I then start working on the first three chapters which become my premise. When that is complete I have to defend it. Once I get past that defense, I can then begin my research and start writing the rest of the dissertation. Once it is all complete, I have to defend it for a final time and once I pass that I am a doctor. I cannot wait. It sounds like a long, drawn out process but if I work diligently I can get it done in a year or a little more. So that is very exciting.

Food has been good overall. When I started this food logging journey, I discovered that I didn't eat enough. The first few days where I was supposed to hit 1800 calories was hard. But I did it and kept it up and now it is pretty much a habit. The second week I was to focus on getting 130 grams of protein. I've been doing pretty good with that, though some days I fall short and I'm not quite sure why. Last week coach wanted me to keep my fat grams down to 70 and I've been doing that pretty much consistently so that was good. Today there is a nutrition clinic where they are going to tell others about this. I'm going to see if I can learn anything about what to eat. Oh, something else that happened quite organically, I now eat every 2-3 hours. I did not set out to do that on purpose, I just find that I get hungry every 2-3 hours when I eat right. Sleep has been truly amazing, I don't think I've had a bad night since I started. And I feel stronger most of the time, not sure if that's really true but it is how I feel.

Been going to Crossfit more than not and that is awesome. I went on Friday and the WOD included running and like a fool I ran. Woke up yesterday with my plantar screaming, so bad I have to wear my shoes in the house. Went to Crossfit yesterday anyway, I figured if it was going to hurt, it was going to hurt for a reason. Woke up this morning and it was slightly better, but still sore. Sitting here in my nightgown and shoes. Still going to Crossfit this morning, call me crazy - whatever.

So things are overall going well. I need to clean up this room, after a lot of classwork the past 2 weeks the desk and room is just a disaster. I also need to do some housework. I've been so focused on schoolwork the last couple of weekends, not much has gotten done around here. That all changes today because I have nothing to work do after Crossfit. I do have some meal prep to do and I may make a quick trip to Costco, depends on how I feel later. Other than that, I will spend the day putting my life and environment back in order.

Doing new (old) things....

As I look back on all previous times I've lost a significant amount of weight, there is generally one common thread. Walking. Back aroun...
