Oh happy days :)

Yes I am in the intervening of the hell weeks I formerly mentioned, and yet I keep having unimpeached fortune and happy things happening to me 🙂

My happy things:
1.  I was offered not the same summer internship interview, this time at Cornell
2.  I was awarded any other scholarship, this time specifically for lab dumb creature medicine
3.  My group got 39/40 adhering our 2nd homework assignment (this is especially awesome for the cause that we received a D on our chief assignment)
4.  Nathan is vexation me to see Beauty and the Beast nearest Thursday at the Orpheum 🙂
5.  I was offered the internship state at the U of I – Chicago 😀 !!!!

Yep.  Happy times.

In other news, I’ve in addition started another weightloss journey.  The stresses of vet exercise and certain things happening in my life lead to a ridiculous cycle of me erosive anything and everything that sounded moderately refined with zero regard for portion restrain.  I recognized this pretty hurried but decided I didn’t care.

Then I stepped in successi~ a scale, saw the number, and unwavering I’d be okay so in extent as I didn’t get back up to X (the calculate I weighed before starting Weight Watchers back in the day).

Then mid-February hit and I had been avoiding the layer but decided to jump on to perceive where I was at… and the amount to was X+1.  As by and by as I saw that I noticed that yeah, my pants weren’t fitting super well and yeah, I was acquirement more tired and lazy with exercising Duke (a parcel more fetch, a lot less walks – that I had been blaming on the cold weather).

So then I realized I should as a matter of fact do something about it, but I positive I was going to be else realistic about things and take it wearisome.  So I gave myself February.  I actually made the conscious decision that I could stronghold eating whatever I wanted whenever I wanted up end February 28.  But come March 1, that was it.  I was ~ward a diet.

So March 1st came and it was a Sunday that I had to moil.  I drive by a Culvers up~ my way to/from work and the Flavor of the Day was Cookie Dough Overload and I reflection to myself, well what’s person more day?  Thought about stopping ~ward my way back all through my shift, it was the consideration of that delicious frozen custard well stocked of delightful cookie dough that kept the smile forward my face while dealing with boorish and ignorant clients.  And sooner or later I got in my car to driving-course home (with my pit stop) and realized the kind of I was doing.

I didn’t stamina to Culver’s, I went home and ate scrambled eggs instead.

That was a pretty proud constituent for me and my motivation.  Since on that account I’ve been counting calories each day and keeping within my rank of desired intake.

I realize it’s simply been 5 days, so it doesn’t in fact seem like a big deal.  But as antidote to me, that’s pretty damn tolerably great, especially compared to the last not many months.

On the down side of that, though my current weight is X-4 (it dropped during February despite my laxity – I was probably still semi-conscious of it), it hasn’t changed ~ dint of. an ounce since March 1st.  Which is disheartening, I put on’t expect to drop pounds each day, but it’s just frustrating to wait upon zero progress with all of my sour work.  Again, I know it’s barely been 5 days.  It normal feels like longer.

Anyway, my goal is to be true to tracking my intake for all of March.  I force do little changes as far like activity goes (like taking the flight of ~ more, walking Duke more, etc) on the other hand that’s not my focus toward this month.

On April 1st yet my plan is to add orderly exercise into the mix.  Again, I’m going gradual with this, and I’m debating giving myself a non-tracking time (1x/week, 1x/2 weeks, or 1x/month??? not abiding yet) but I’m thinking in April I enjoin start focusing more on the agility side of things.  I in like manner think it might be easier to be sufficient it then, hopefully the weather wish be nicer and more enticing ~ dint of. that point.

Well I think that’s plenty about me.  Time to try to refocus in successi~ this current pharmacology lecture (actually fairly entertaining this time).
