Where Have I Been?

Hi guys. Sorry that I haven't been updating the blog lately. My life has been crazy busy lately. First off, work is insane. Research wise, I have a ton of balls up in the air, and I'm trying not to drop any of them. I've done that before, and wasted a good year of research work. My classes are almost over, so while the grading has kind of calmed down at this point in the week, I'll be spending all weekend grading final exams. Secondly, I've been really busy personally. Lots of six mile walks with friends outdoors, giving myself some well deserved Kiki time now that spring has sprung. I'd like to get back to blogging regularly, but I don't know when. You'll just have to keep checking for updates.

My biggest issue right now is stress eating. Between my research and my grading, I've been nibbling on candy here and there. Luckily for me, I'm still losing, not gaining, but obviously, I'm not losing as fast as I probably could if I was not eating candy throughout the day. Also, at this time of the year, I have no motivation to cook, so I've been eating lots of Subway (seriously, Jared, how did you do this for extended periods of time?), sandwiches and frozen meals (yes, I know, sodium, but it's going to have to do for now).

So, really, I am here, putting in the time at the gym, but at the same time... I'm so busy that I can't really update my blog regularly. Thanks for wondering where I've been, all the same :)

You could always be doing better, and you could always be doing worse. Looks like for now you're doing all that you can to keep yourself sane. Sure you could be losing at a faster rate, but at what cost? Seems like you're doing the best that you can in your situation and that's the best anyone can ask of themselves.

You'll be fine. Just keep up all the walking and running etc. Do hope though that you can find an alternative snack that is not so loaded with sugar.

We could all be doing better I sure. It is important that you know where you could be doing better. Acknowledge it and then attack it from all sides.

It stinks when life makes it harder to stay focused. This is always a busy time of the semester for you - you'll get through it. It'll be over before you know it! As long as you get your workouts in, you'll feel good!
