Lacking the Motivation



I'm in the midst of what I would affectionately refer to as "Midterm Madness." I'm fortunate to only have one midterm this semester, but I also have projects, papers, trials, court appearances, etc.all around the same time.  Not to mention, I have to complete my bar application by the end of the month. The only light at the end of that tunnel is that this is my LAST SEMESTER. On top of all of that, I'm planning a graduation trip with friends, stressing about getting a job, and worrying about where I'm going to live in a few months. 

I've been using all of this as an excuse not to hit the gym. To make matters worse, I have not been the best with sticking to my points. I'm like a roller coaster-- one meal I'm sticking strictly to my points and going out but making smart choice, then I'm going out on an "eat fest" with friends or eating the fries/chips that come with my healthy food despite how much I think don't even taste good. Ugh. I need consistency. Better yet-- I need motivation. My wedding dress really motivated me to get the weight off and in a hurry. I saw it as not having a choice but to lose the weight. Now, I feel like, "If I lose it, I lose it. If I don't, it's not the end of the world."  I need something to force me to get back to my regiment. Any suggestions? 

I need to find the time for myself again somehow . I think I'm struggling to find balance. Maybe I'll have to give up volunteering, but I love what I do so much. I could always take time away from my evenings with Dan. Plus, I've been doing very little homework on the weekends. Hmm, I will have to rearrange things to make it work, but it's possible. Now, if only I could stick to it...

@Dan: You think you're funny. You know it won't happen without about $10k in body lift surgery. However, one day, I will make a tankini look good :)

@Mel: I wear a bathing suit regardless. I have bigger goals in the works. I have a week on LBI planned for after I take the bar. Can I count you in?

Which week? Rough estimate?
