That's pretty much how I feel right now and probably will until the end of October. I'm just keeping my head right above water, trying not to drown. Every once in a while a wave comes and I swallow a bunch of salt water.
As far as the diet, I'm not being as religious as I have been, but I'm not driving through Wendy's every day either. Luckily, over the past few months I have developed an eating routine of sorts, and I'm just following that right now. Yes, I know a few extra pounds off by the time I defend would help me fit into some pants, but let's just say a skirt is looking pretty good right now!
Along with just trying to stick to my regular eating routine, I'm trying to work out every day with my walking DVDs, even if that just means the 30 minute 2 mile workout. With all the stress I'm under right now, I know this is extra important for my sanity if not for my ass.
So, that's the latest update. I have bucket-loads of school work to do now along with my regular freelance writing gigs, so you may not see much of me until after October is over. Funny thing is - October is usually one of my favorite months. It is great as far as the weather, and good things usually happen to me during this month. I have to believe, then, that I'll some how be rewarded for all this come October 31st!
