Jogging again after 3 weeks of laziness

Saturday, May 25, 2013

I wanted to show you how sweaty I am!!!
But I realize now that you cannot really see it so you just have to take my word for it!

I just came home from my walking/jogging (mostly walking) and I am very proud because I haven't done it for about 3 weeks.
I was using as an excuse that I don't have enough time, that my exams are approaching and I am too stressed and I neglected my exercise lately. The only thing I was doing was going to the library on foot instead of taking the bus, and that is just a walk of 10 or 20 minutes, and I didn't even do it every day! But I know I must stop doing that and get back on track because apart from everything else I know that it would also benefit my studying! The lack of time, it's just an excuse, it's not a real reason. Because my main problem is stress and even the days that I don't exercise I might stay in front of the book all day but that doesn't mean that I am focused or concentrated all these hours (quite the opposite I dare say). But I know that when I exercise I am much more focused and concentrated , and I get much better results at the end of the day. And I know that this is not a coincidence it is a fact and it is happening because when I exercise regularly I stress much less!!!
Let's hope that I will be keeping that in mind the next days!

I don't have anything else to say, I think....

My eating was good, I was eating within range.

That's all.
And now I have to leave you... emoticon Yeah, you see that face? emoticon ....Now I have to leave you but I wish I could stay here and speak for another half hour so that I wouldn't have to start studying...But I have to go back to this (pediatrics book)... I don't like pediatrics, I like kids, I am not crazy about them, they are ok..., I don't like pediatrics as a lesson, it's.... Anyway, you are not interested in that, I am babbling...

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!
See you soon!

    Good for you! I know you know this, but it's even harder to go back to exercise after you haven't been doing it -- I took less than a week off for the wedding and even in that time we went on hikes, rafting, etc. and STILL I'm struggling to get back into the groove! I know my errrKk!! husband!! (I wanted to say fiance) has definitely made exercise a solace from all the work related stress. It's hard to remember sometimes that you're doing it for yourself and it's one of the healthiest things you can do. emoticon

    I remember college (I graduated in 2009, so not that long ago). Just try to do what you can when you can. Remember to eat as healthy as possible, which isn't always all that easy when you're studying. And make sure you get enough sleep! That will help with your fitness and your academic goals. Good luck! emoticon

    You are definitely correct about the exercise-studying connection. Just taking that time for your body and soul will definitely make the time you spend studying more focused and productive.
    LOL - You are studying pediatrics, and I am leaving in 5 minutes to take two of my kids to the pediatrician... Sore throats, possible strep.
    Have a great rest of the day!
    You do look wonderfully sweaty!!!!

    You are right, exercise will help your concentration and your stress. Loved seeing you speak in person! Hope your exams go well!

    The break is good for you, the physical activity helps you mentally. You will get through Peds and go onto the next area of focus. Maybe you will like that better.
