Kicking butt and Taking names

College senior in the big city. I like lifting, sports, the beach, running, and wine. Workaholic, lifter, runner, wannabe yogi and someone trying to find her true self. I'm always a work in progress trying to be the best.

If you haven’t noticed my posting has significantly dropped in the last month. I mean granted - it usually drops when school starts but this year it’s been off of a cliff. I also feel like I’m in the edge of a cliff at times this semester.

Let me start by saying I’m taking 17 credits, working at my school’s radio station, picking up shifts at a network radio station, interning and running my schools newspaper. I work ridiculous hours - overnights, some shifts till 3, 4 in morning - I’ve been having a really hard time finding a balance.

Like tonight for example, I stayed in, put on sweatpants, had a huge glass of red wine, some Italian food and then caught up on my hw. It was awesome.

It was also awesome that I hit the gym the last few days and tweaked my workouts to better fit my schedule.

Diet comes next and god do I need to do something about it and it starts with cooking most of my meals. But I don’t have time to go to the grocery store until Tuesday…

I ‘m super sorry this is so,whiny I just needed a brain dump

"we almost dated" is such a weird relationship to have with someone

Plus the sequel “we never got closure”

And then the side adaptation “as a result I have a weird crush that never died”

Yeah I can attest to the “almost dated” thing like I had that with a girl for some months and then we just like stopped talking to each other #noclosure.

I took an unintended hiatus from tumblr. With vacation, moving back to school, helping out with orientation, starting my (gulp!) senior year - I just didn’t have time for it.

And let’s be honest my healthy eating habits eating and working out have completely gone by the wayside these last 2+ weeks. I’m not upset because I’ve been enjoying myself but I feel the weight gain and as I mentioned before the hiatus my weight is up a lot so I need to combat that. How so though with my darling schedule is the question.

My plan of attack right now is to number one go food shopping. I can’t tell you the last time that happened. Meal planning is also involved in that - scheduling out what I plan to eat.

Then I’m going to try a strict iifym so clean, healthy carbs, protein and fats.

Workout 5-6x a week about an hour per day. Some days when it includes yoga it will be longer. Check back in a month and see what changed if I actually follow this.

(Ps this starts Monday because I do not have time to grocery shop before Sunday night.

Ready. Set. Break.

I mean I had to get up at midnight for work and ended up taking a 2 hour nap in the middle of the day so my body was all out of whack. The amount of caffeine and carbs I pumped through my system to stay awake was unheard of.

Today however, I started on the right foot. I got 8.5 hours of sleep and then I hit the gym this morning for HIIT, back and bis. Nothing crazy, no pr’s, just a nice solid get back on track gym session.

As for the rest of the day, I have to go to an event for work at 1230 and I have to hit the bank. Other than that just hit my macros and try to squeeze in 20 minutes of yoga tonight (before under the dome because woah that show is just mind blowing.)

Have a lovely Monday!
