Hope you all had a terrific Monday! It was back to the grind again for me after a terrific break!
This morning, I woke up, went back to work, and then went back to the gym! Wahoo! Now I have jello legs after an hour on the elliptical, but my mood is boosted after my first work-out since Wednesday!!
Exercise is great. I was feeling gross after eating entirely too much this weekend…I went to the gym, and now I feel a whole lot better! It’s funny how the pain in my legs can make me happy but it’s true! 🙂 Endorphins are great things!
At work today, I started scheduling the computer lab attendants for the upcoming semester. Then this realization set it: Classes start 2 weeks from today. Eeek. I made it through one graduate class, but that was when I didn’t have anything else to do but work a few hours. Now I will have three classes, more work hours, potentially substitute teaching here and there. And on top of it, I would like to work out, too!!! Actually, as I realized today, I NEED to work out. Can I do it? Sure I can. Will it be easy? I doubt it! But as I look back on my undergraduate degree, I do really well when I am extremely busy, and I feel more productive and successful at the same time.
Another realization that set in today: The BF won’t be here anymore! I know that I will be seeing him this coming weekend for my cousin’s wedding, but Shippensburg is going to be lonely without him! He has headed back to his parent’s house to start working at a long-term sixth grade substitute, and he is going to be GREAT! But, it’s just not the same without him to watch TV with and rant to every night before bed. Who else can put up with my insanity? And now we will have to tell our highs and lows over the phone! Getting back in the groove is going to be totally different without him.
This month is going to bring about a lot of new feelings. Heading back to school is going to be different than ever before. No more BF. No more swim practice. No more meal plan. Pretty soon, no more long hair! I have graduated, but I am still around. I guess I will get a taste of what it is like to be an adult. I hope I like it!
At least I know I can always rely on a good salad…like I had for dinner tonight!
In order to ease my mind after a lot of thinking, I met with my lovely roommate at Panera today after she was done with work. We didn’t see each other for a whole week so catching up was necessary!
Well, enough thinking about the future for me. It’s going to be a great semester; I can feel it already! I just need to prepare myself for it!
Oh, ya. I had something I wanted feedback on. I have seen other bloggers doing “Vegan for a Day” or “Vegan for a Week“. I have really been reading up on veganism, and I think I may want to try and challenge myself to be vegan for a week. After that, anything is fair game. I would ultimately like to change my eating habits entirely.
I would like your feedback, advice, and tips. From those of you who are vegan, what types of things do I have to remember for this lifestyle? What advice do you have for me?
Can’t wait to hear from you!
