Another week has come and gone. I know I should have posted this yesterday, but I spent a solid two and a half hours figuring out an essay for my first test in my paralegal course. My brain is still hurting from slogging through the Federal Rules for Civil Procedure. I’m enjoying it, don’t get me wrong, but figuring out the most concise way to articulate the differences between some of the rules feels like an exercise in futility. Still, it’s exciting to be back at school almost 5 years after graduating with my masters. Even if it’s only for 14 weeks, it’s fun to be a student again.
Reflections – Lows:
Thursday. Can I just put an entire day down? Thursday pretended to be a Tuesday this past week. It was hard and I did not like it. Everything seemed to go wrong from not being able to get to the gym to B coming home late for lunch and then not getting home until 2000 and having to go back in at 2030 and not come home until 2330. It was a long day. There were lots of tears. I’m glad it is gone.
Reflections – Highs:
Shipping our car out. Nothing makes it more real that we’re leaving, not even packing out all our belongings. Shipping out the car means we have to walk everywhere, but it also means that we’re so close. An added benefit is that we can no longer drive to easy food in three minutes or less. Now we have to walk there and that’s an excellent added deterrent to eating out.
Sharing accountability on working out with my sister. It was fun to text her updates and receive hers. It definitely helped me with getting to the gym faithfully. It also didn’t hurt that I started seeing results this week. Look at how actually being aware of my calorie intake and working out regularly results in weight loss. Craziness.
Keep up the working out daily. Keep tracking calories at myfitnesspal. Keep being accountable to my sister. These all worked wonders for me this last week, so here’s to repeating that success.
Don’t put off my homework until the last day it is due. I did a good job of tackling everything except my essay earlier in the week, but I kept putting it off and it made it harder than it should have been. The goal is to have everything ready for turn in well before the weekend this week. I also want to start getting ahead so that life will be easier when we’re moving.
What’s on tap for you this week?
