And then, I turned things around in the Spring semester. No more grease, no eating out, in fact, worked out religiously - so regularly that my courses came only second in priority. I lost about 15 pounds in that one semester. And maintained that over the next one year.
Then I got complacent.
Sheila asked me if I wished to play the game this month, I jumped right into it. Things are way hectic right now, I'm waiting for my new car, I hardly have time to blog or read once I'm home, and now I'm on this game that I joined to clean up my bad habits and live a more ascetic life (well, close). The bad news? No more coffee. I survived two days without it and realized that I've been having it out of habit, but on weekends, I really love to have coffee as I sit on my PC. I mean, isn't that, like, the way to something like blogging and reading news in the morning? Who catches up on morning stuff without coffee, anyway? So I'm arguing that at least I discovered I'm not addicted to the stuff, so that I can go back to having it. I'm allowed one indulgence.
I bought the copy last night, and while I'm still not sure how much of the advice I will buy and not, what I do know is that doing a game such as this can only be good for me. I desperately want to get back to my old fitness mode, and not sit around feeling confident that I can do this whenever I want. So, although I officially started this yesterday, yours truly is still sleeping only 4 hours a night and sluggishly wading through her day. Before I say Bring it On! I need to say Wish me luck!
