Slowly getting back into it

I'm slowly getting back into working out. It has been a long, long break. The fall was filled with sadness for me if you are a reader of my blog and stress of my school and time constraints made it all too easy to quit working out. But, I'm back at it even if it is only walking for now. Soon, I will add weight lifting and then get back to other things like the elliptical and yoga. Not sure about the running! I do miss biking though but the weather is crap these days and I've never tried the indoor spinning. Have any of you tired it? My hubby has and he says some of the teachers are tough and that it's a good workout.

I've been busy with school and it's going pretty good. The hard part is the physics class. I'm not enjoying it that much and I'm trying to get my head around it and really understand it. Wish me luck!!! I never have taken a class such as this. The anatomy and postioning for xray is going well as well as my internship at the clinic. I'm liking those things.

Not too much time for fun but I did go to a baby shower yesterday and the lady hosting it is married to an old family friend. A guy I grew up with whose mom is my mom's best friend. This guy has done really well for himself and has one of those 'street of dreams' houses. If you don't know what that is, they are prob. million dollar homes I would guess. It was awesome with a whole workout room and a room that looked like a mini-theater and also room for a pool table and outdoor hot tub and overlooking the golf course. He's living large but he is a lawyer and works all the time. I'm not sure if I would make that trade off or not. Do you have time to enjoy it all? I don't think I like to work more than 40-50 hours a week but the money would be nice. Anyway, it was a nice shower and the mom to be (who is married to his younger brother) got some really nice things and it fun to see how excited someone gets when expected their first child.

Other than that, not a lot going on. Had a chance to spend my gift cards at the mall and got some new clothes and shoes and had my hair done with a gift card too. I missed out on going up to the mountain to go inner-tubing with my son and hubby but I have to put in the study time to get decent grades. It sucks but whatcha gonna do. I have to miss tonight out with friends too due to this darn physics test coming up. I haven't seen them since November and they are going out for Thai food....waaaaahhhhh.....but I made the decision and I'll see them next month. It is just quite a ways for me to get up to Seattle and I need to be at the library. My son and hubby are missing me too. It is fricken hard to go back to school and give everyone my time too. It just ain't possible. Ok, just feeling the pressure a bit at the moment.

Hope everyone is doing good on their fitness journeys. I'll check in with you soon.

The study will all be worth it in the end though, and then you'll be able to do more stuff with your friends and family. I just hope they're all supporting you as you do for them. Have a great week.
and yes it was my ex I went away with but we're getting on much better, long story - I guess I better explain it on my blog. I will never go back to him, but it's the best thing for Lachie for us to forget the past and move on, being friends and working with each other to look after our child the best we can.

Indoor spinning classes (RPM) are FANTASTIC, I just love them! You work really really hard, it's so worth it!

You are doing so well with your studies! I forget how much dedication school takes and I just graduated last May! You will not regret feeling prepared for your classes and exams. I feel like it helped me stay calm and collected during school to be on top of my work. You are a great student - don't let physics intimidate you! :)
