2 Pounds down! (50 more to go)

Sunday, January 18, 2009

The last two weeks have been extraordinarily tough and stressful. Winter quarter started at UCSD and my schedule is already hell on earth! I am taking 4 classes, which believe it or not, is INSANE! They recommend sticking to 3 per quarter. But, I took 4 classes last quarter and still managed a 3.4 GPA. Booyah for me. Anyway, this quarter is going to be 10x harder than last, with practicum requirements to meet (that's where I work on a show; I am a lightboard operator for a dance show in March), as well as lab work for two classes, lectures, projects, papers, etc. for all the rest of them. I managed to schedule in a Pilates class, which I thoroughly enjoy! Too bad its only twice a week. Plus, I have a club meeting on Fridays, Student Council on Thursdays, and in my insanity would like to add a job to the mix!

The second week of school proved to be more stressful than the first! Unusual. Wednesday of the week was particularly horrible. I ended up in tears twice that day! Jeez. I still managed to get in a good workout.

I've been eating very well and healthy. I've only eaten out on weekends, and during the week pack my meals, breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner, to take to school with me (tricky, since I don't always have refrigeration available so I have to take non-perishable foods). Yay for me and healthy food!

At our gym on campus, they offer this thing called FitStop once a week. Its free! I was tested on all sorts of things... blood pressure, fitness endurance, body fat. It turns out I am in slightly better shape than I thought!

So, in all this, I managed to lose 2 more pounds of this horrible fat! Woot for me! I look forward to losing more and more as this year progresses.
