8 lbs Gained and Stressful Schedules

sleeping-in

 

I stepped on the scale today and was a little upset to see I gained 8 lbs. This is part of the 12 lbs I gained from Jamaica. When I weighed myself the day after Jamaica it was not really my weigh in day. Today was my weigh in day and I did see I lost four pounds from my trip which is great but I bet I could have lost more if my schedule was not so crazy this week!

I started back with my graduate courses and working at a local grade school this week. I usually work the grade school and then drive all the way to graduate school. I go to graduate school for three days a week. I commute an hour and a half both ways to school which stinks. By the time I am home I am usually exhausted or it is is so late to work out. I now understand what people are talking about when they say they are too busy to work out. It stinks.

I am going to figure things out though. Maybe I will try to work out on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I will have to get away from the idea that I am so exhausted. Even if I run around the neighborhood for twenty minutes will be better then nothing. I need to push myself. I am too close to lose it right now. It stinks to gain 8 lbs but I will suck it up. There is always next week. Now I have to get ready and head to AC. Halestorm is performing at the House of Blues. =)
