On another note as much as I love the holidays I feel like it is really crunch time. I have finals to worry about, travel for Christmas, money of course, my rent went up, and to top it off my job. I am currently in a grant funded position that ends at the end of December unless it is renewed. With the current financial issues in the university and beyond I am not all that sure it will happen which will leave me jobless at the worst time of year. I love my job (preschool teacher) and that is why I will wait it out to hope for the best. I suppose all of this simply equals STRESS.
One thing I will not stress about is my diet/exercise because I CAN control that; unlike much that is listed above. I will plan my food, saving time and money by purchasing only what I need to make the meals planned. I will use my running as stress relief/me time.
I am going to focus on planning my time for EVERYTHING from shopping to school to meals and of course exercise. Here we go....bring it on December.
