Monday, Sep 16 2013 - Today was brutal
View CECILY55's food & exercise for this day
To everyone who has posted all those wonderful support messages on my blog, THANK YOU. I haven't had the time to respond, but I have read each and every message. I really appreciate your kind thoughts. I will get it together eventually and start answering.
Classes started at 9:30 this morning and finally ended at 5:30. It wouldn't have been so bad except there were breaks in between -- not long enough to accomplish anything or go home or work out. They were just long enough to soak up time; if the breaks had been all together and the classes all together (with just enough time to visit the potty
.) I wouldn't have felt like so much of the day was wasted with nothing I could do about it.
I think my computer is about to die. At least one of the USB outlets is getting weird and my external hard-drive doesn't want to link up right. But I did get everything backed up tonight so at least I'm covered if the whole thing decides to go south.
My exercise has been nearly non-existent, but my eating has been ok. I have dealt with that little problem by just taking healthy snacks to school (which today lasted forever). And my eating has been decent when I get home--largely because I have been buying food from the Co-op and (1) it has so much flavor I don't eat as much and (2) it's relatively expensive so I can't afford to eat as much. Sort of a win-win situation.
I got to say this law school stuff is really pretty tough. I read and I brief and I write -- then repeat and repeat and repeat and ...... Well, you get the idea. I've been trying to check in with some study groups, but mostly they seem to be an enormous waste of time. At least they're a waste for study purposes, but the gossip and whining is therapeutic. As an aside, one of my study-group-mates is almost exactly 40 years younger than I am! I don't know exactly what to think about that except I am pretty sure I have more experience at being 23 than she does
I have got to figure out how to work in some exercise. When I have time (in a day or two when I get sort of caught up), I'm going to take a good long look at my schedule and figure something out. Even if I only do 20-30 minutes per day it will be a big help.
It's now after 8 o'clock and I got up at 4 this morning to study, so I am really beat. I think it's time for this old girl to knock it off for the night.
