    shadri - all you have to decide

    wow, incredible, it’s week three and I still haven’t done a workout yet~ I’m think I’m trying to introduce/enforce too many new things at once, when I’m already trying to gear up for the new semester. So maybe I’ll just focus on diet for now, and walking places whenever possible. I have been doing fairly well on fasting, and not terrible on diet. I downloaded MFP again and have been tracking. Not necessarily low carb like I intended, but I’ve been at the very least trying to adhere to my prescribed calorie count. Except for one fateful day... I was hanging out with my physics friends and had a few drinks and an utterly shameful amount of Oreos. But it was just the one time, and after eating myself sick, I’m content to stay away from the junk food for a while.

    Y’ALL There’s this band called half•alive and they’re my second favorite and they just released a new song and I’m in love already. Listen to eeeet. And listen to the rest of their stuff, for that matter. It’s easy, they’ve only got five songs so far.

    Thank you both. things did get a little better. I got to see my fiancé one last time after all; and it turns out I’d lost six pounds since the middle of December. I’m back at my apartment since Monday, getting settled and seeing various friends. Haven’t done any workouts yet, but have been walking places around town, moderating how much I eat, and have been doing okay on fasting (though I’ve given in a couple times and had a small snack). I finally got my work schedule, and I have Wednesdays completely off! Which is nice. I also don’t have to be anywhere before 11, except for Mondays. Also nice. I’m gonna try and get a morning routine going. I got a whiteboard and I wrote all my goals on there, so I can look at it every day and be reminded of what it is I’m working towards.

    Hey y’all. It’s been a while. I had to take a break from the forums - I literally didn’t have the energy to spare to function properly, let alone maintain an online presence. I was in hardcore damage-control mode just trying to survive the semester and pass my classes. My first semester of grad school was, without exaggeration, the hardest four months of my life so far. Some life details under the cut: tl;dr - life is hard, adulting is hard, grad school is hard, mental illness is hard, I’m medicated now. I wish none of this had happened. So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you. I never want to feel how I felt this semester, ever again. So that’s gonna inform what I do with the time that is given to me, from here on out. SO! I am deciding to be a healthy human, because I know that will help me continue to feel better. How am I gonna do the healthy human thing?? ~ batch cook on weekends! Batch cooking is a lifesaver, truly, and I didn’t do it at all this semester. I need to get back on that, to save both my waistline and my wallet. ~ three physical activities per week! Yoga, darebee, go to the rec center, go for a run, etc. for at least 30 minutes. Theoretically M,W,F mornings, but we’ll have to see what my work schedule looks like. Maybe one can be on the weekend. I think I’ll leave it at that for now. I don’t wanna put too much on my plate. Other exciting things that happened during my radio silence!
