Power perfect

I thought now would be a perfect time to update since I'm waiting for something to dissolve. If you think your life is interesting try waiting for something to dissolve for 2hrs....and it hasn't even happened yet.

So I'm officially in the second week of classes for my pre-recs for PT school. And I'm already feeling it. The biggest concern is finding enough time to work out, and focusing on nutrition enough to counter act any....need to sit on my ass all day and study biology so i can get an A days.

So far its been OK. I managed 1 trip to the gym on Saturday (because we got out early from bio lab) my mom and i did a circuit of my own making.
3 sets
Assisted pull ups
bicep curls
bench press
straight leg dead lifts
standing rows with triceps kick back
1 legged super man extensions - (side note: haven't done those in awhile and they killed...its funny cause you think something like taking your arms above our head and 1 leg out wouldn't be that hard...think of forming a T with your body...but holy moly....its not a position my body likes)

And Yesterday I went to group power with Laura. Awesome as usual and since it was an old release i was able to challenge myself a bit because the routine was not quite as familiar.

The hard part has been with the nutrition. I will admit to anyone that I am an emotion eater. I eat when I'm stress, and we aren't talking carrot sticks people. Though i feel that for everyday life i have managed to work through my cravings and problems with food and managed to reach a happy medium. I haven't been under this homework doing / have to work stress in awhile so its not something I've practiced. I've decided I'm just going to take it a day at a time and try to make the best choices for that day..stressed or not. but if i slip...which has happened (I'm thinking of the large dent in the cookies from this weekend) I'm not going to freak out about it and just try to do better next time.

I will say...the one great thing about having GI issues is when i do have a slip I end up paying for it for a few days. This one involved 2 full 3 days later and finally feeling relatively normal...and not completely disgusting and in pain...and i way less motivated to turn to large quantities of sweets. Because i don't want two more days of hell. Hey, whatever works....

tactics for this week...
don't be near the kitchen while studying.
Don't let yourself get too hungry....this doesn't help even under good circumstances.

that's all for now.
