It is the final week of classes! I couldn’t be happier to say that. This quarter has been interesting to say the least, and honestly, I got to the point where I just stopped caring about three weeks in, especially with one class. When you learn that your best still isn’t good enough and the prof isn’t willing to help you figure out how to make it good enough you just stop caring. I do, anyway. So after this week I am done! Minus finals, which is just two five page papers (easy peasy lemon squeezey), and one test. Unfortunately I have to work until the cafe closes so I can’t just leave when I’m done with finals. Thankfully they’re only open until Thursday next week, and my bank account will be happy.
Now, the picture above just really speaks to me. I’ve been having a hard time, as usual, and cut back on eating sweets major today. I worked out for over an hour between watching Pretty Little Liars and waiting for Cougar Town to start. And it’s not just about working out. You should try in every aspect of your life. I tried really hard this quarter, and it’s paying off. I am now officially an English Major with a Writing Specialization. I am getting transferred from the cafe to the main student union building in the smack middle of campus instead of having to run everywhere from work. We almost got this awesome duplex to live in but it’s whatever. As for my fitness level, well, I still weigh the same and I might have gained a little more muscles. It certainly feels like it, but I really need to eat cleaner which, let’s face it, just isn’t possible on campus. After working in foods I know that absolutely nothing served here is fresh and natural, which bothers me. It’s almost like they want us to gain the Freshman 15. I did just order a cookbook by the fabulous Tosca Reno, creator and author of the Eat Clean Diet books, and I also ordered the Anorexia Workbook. I just found out the my therapist has closed her practice and retired, and there is no one to go to in my uni’s town, so the book is the next best thing.
But it’s so important to try. I have bad days all the time. It doesn’t even matter what area. Recovery, fitness, nutrition, academics, work, you name it. No area of my life is perfect and that’s normal, but it is most definitely important to try, even if you fail. Just don’t fail to try.
I’m off to watch Cougar Town and get ready for the end of this quarter. Once I finish work and finals I get to go home and get caught up in the whirl wind that is wedding planning. We got the first draft of our ceremony today. It’s getting to be so real! Ah!
