Out of My Rut

  
  Last time I really wrote on here I was a negative Nancy. I was in a huge rut I could not get out of. I found myself feeling lost because I was having a hard time losing weight. I feel like I had a hard time getting back to old habits. 

  So for the last couple of weeks I got back into high gear. The month of Feburary I could attend Spin class three or four times a week. I also cut back on drinking beer and I stopped buying candy. I also stopped eating peanut butter from a jar but went to powder peanut butter.

  
  I also learned to stop snacking at night. I used to eat popcorn a lot and I took that out of my diet. Popcorn is nothing but carbs and salt. That makes you retain water and feel bloated. Why should I eat that?

  
I am doing so well! I am out of the 80’s which was a hard struggle for me. I am so happy to still be out of the 80’s this week. I do not even care I did not lose weight. 

  
  I am serving English Professor realness.

 This semester has been stressful with trying to teach students to write amazing research papers. I had to learn this semester I may expect too much from them and need to take it easy. It has been very hard for me this semester. It most likely has been in my head. Sometimes I have a hard time getting out of my head. 

 The past month has been a true eye opener for me that I need to relax and have confidence. If people judge me based off my teaching style, my weight, or personality than forget them.

  
 Losing some weight the last couple weeks makes some of my old clothes fit. I am also experimenting with makeup because I want my face to stand out more.  

    
   
I am turning 27 in a couple of weeks and I have never felt younger. Even though I am a professor who holds my students attention and need to be adult…I still feel so young. 

Here is to being confident and positive!
