School and weight

I started school at Utah State University at the Tooele extension on the 6th. I'm only taking two classes, English and Human Development. I think it's better to get things done sooner than later, but honestly 13 or so years ago when I was going to USU in Logan I wasn't focused and all I wanted to do was have fun and take classes that sounded interesting, the end goal wasn't a degree, what was it? Who knows? Now I know what I want to do and why I want to do it. My focus is not to see if I meet any cute guys or to find my next bestie. I will be honest and say that there is ONE person that I never wanted to have to associate with and that person just happens to be in my Human Development class, there are only 8 people in the class, open discussion and interaction is encouraged, this woman and I will have to interact. We'll just have to put on our big girl panties and pretend that nothing happened. Other than that I think it's going to be great and hopefully I don't drown with all the other things I have heaped on my plate at the moment.

I'm not happy with how I look. I've set some mighty big goals for the coming year. I really couldn't care less what the scale says, BUT I care about how my clothes fit.  And I'm sick and tired of constantly pulling on my shirts to make sure they are covering my belly or that I'm not showing any crack when I bend over. I'm also tired of not enjoying every moment with my boys. This summer we went to an indoor family fun center and I couldn't fit in the seat of a ride with my kids, humiliation at its finest. I also have someone near and dear to me that will not be in pictures, and isn't able to do fun things with her kids because of her weight. I don't want to do that to myself or to my kids.... Not to mention all the health risks I have: High Cholesterol, pre-diabetic, sleep apnea, yada, yada, yada. Anyways 2014 is going to be MY year! On my way to a degree in teaching and being able to run 3 miles without stopping so that I can get back on track to training for and running a marathon.

Wahoo- you have started your classes.
Keep your focus, you can do it!

And you can chew on apples(teacher) for a snack as you study.

Good Luck!!
