Lose Weight, Maintain GPA (and a mourning of a loss)
Friday, January 13, 2012
So up until this point, I have been wanting to exercise just because it's good for me, and, gosh darn it, I should just go ahead and do it. That has not been consistently working. So, new plan. I signed up for a strength/weight training class at my college. Now, I NEED to exercise, or else my GPA is going to take a blow. I have found out in the past that I am willing to sacrifice health and sleep for a grade, so let's see if I am willing to sacrifice some time and sweat...maybe even a few pounds. It's a small start, but I hope to get into a habit of exercising that will carry beyond this class.
In other news, Otis, my 1999 Pontiac Grand Am, died yesterday at 11 am. I apparently did not slow down enough around a corner, slid sideways-ish on the snow, and snapped the right front tire off of the axle. The repair would have cost $1900, which is close to more than the care is worth. He had his problems, but he was a good little car. I will miss his temperamental nature. RIP, Otis.
