I didn't post last week because I didn't have anything to say. And, while I don't really have much to say here either (or at least I don't think I do....), I couldn't not post.
Two months from yesterday, all being well, I will be finished with my interruption in trying to lose weight. My dissertation will be handed in and life will return to a new version of normal.
Some reflections on things as they stand at the moment:
- I'm starting to feel fat again. I'm only up 2.8 pounds from my lowest weight, but I can feel it creeping back into my psyche. It's partially related to my gain, but mostly I think it is because of my substantial decrease in exercise. Sitting on my bum all day at a desk typing away isn't doing a lot to keep the slob monster away.
- I recognize that my quest for balance feels a little out of balance with my priority toward this dissertation taking center-stage. And yet, I feel as if it is the best thing I can do for me at the moment. It's not my only choice - I could quit, get an extension, or whatever - but it's the only thing I want to do. It has to get done, and the sooner the better. And I think it's just part of life that sometimes you have to put important things aside for a short amount of time to get other important things done. It doesn't make it easier though....
So, that's where I am. Hanging in there. Waiting for October 1 to hurry up and get here - but not too fast because I still have a lot to do!
