so about that roll...

It stopped rolling. I have been doing a lot of school work lately and have been exhausted this week. I got a whopping 2 workouts in.

This whole finding balance thing SUCKS. it is hard and near impossible.

I am determined to get back on track this week.

I am also going to try to change my eating habits. I am tired of eating crap and feeling like crap. So starting next week, I am going to be trying to eat more along the guidelines of the Paleo diet. Getting back to the basics of foods. It will take a lot of planning, but everything I have read about it seems to point to it being a good way to eat.

My hardest thing will be giving up the carbs. We eat rice, potatoes and bread all the time. The other hard thing will be that I am so picky, so finding new and yummy foods I like might be a challenge, but I am going to try and force myself to try new things.

I am going to give it a good two weeks and hopefully not fall off the bandwagon. My hope is to share my experience here.

If grad school will let me :-D

On a roll

and loving it.

I have worked out everyday (except last Friday because I was doing this)

I have been doing couch to 5k at an 8:30-8:50 min mile 3 days a week and p90x workouts the other days.

I finally made a schedule out. I am LOVING the p90x - even if Tony is annoying as H-E-double hockey sticks...

Here is what I am doing

You can see a better view of it here.

So far this month I am doing very well - hoping to keep my streak alive! That will take some planning ahead these next few weekends. And possibly some getting up early on weekends too... its worth it. I almost didn't workout tonight - and guilted myself into it. Now I am sitting here all sweaty and tired but glad I did it! YAY!!
