Currently Listening to: Over and Over – Good Old War
Eighty degree weather in the middle of March is much welcomed around these parts. Granted, we have had perhaps two days of cold weather all winter (I think maybe it got down to the 20s a couple of times), but the early warm up is nice. Though it does leave room for a bit of concern about what the summer will bring.
Finals are approaching. Well, final papers, that is, and one oral presentation. Then a week off, and then back at it for the summer term (which ends literally 8 days after summer begins. Score.) with Fundamentals of Environmental Health and Fundamentals of Epidemiology. I’ve heard that Epi is somewhat difficult, but I am really looking forward to the class. We’ll see if I am of the same mindset in a month or so, haha.
And the workout trend continues. I have been lucky to get in at least one workout a day (with the exception of Monday – my day of rest during the week), and usually Thursday-Sunday I get two workouts in. Given the beautiful and warm weather, I have been walking 2 miles in the morning, and then running the same route in the afternoon, followed by my normal weights, crunches, push ups, etc afterwards. And I finally am just below 130 pounds! In a little under 7 months, I have lost 35 pounds, and gotten toned an in shape. I am now confident that if I had to run for my life….I could actually do it 🙂 And I recently bought a bikini. Which may sounds trite. Or something. But considering in the past, I wear jeans in the summer instead of shorts and don’t put on a bathing suit unless it isabsolutely necessary….this is quite a big deal. I still need to get another one – but probably a one-piece, as it will work better under a wetsuit for diving in Honduras. The other one is just to look cute 🙂
And on that note…. I am off for work out # 2 – run uptown and back, and finishing up the rest back here. Need to take advantage of the weather, since it’s supposed to be wet, cold, and crappy the rest of the weekend. 😦 Adios!
