Today I finished my classes around 12:00, studied
for a couple hours, and then hit the track for a great workout. It felt so good to be running again after
finally recovering from the terrible cold virus that’s infesting the
Fortunately, I was able to get
some quality rest during my sick period. Sometimes I think
illness is our body’s way of telling us to slow down and breathe. I’ve been so busy lately that I have not had
the proper time to take care of myself.
So this week for me is all about getting healthy again. Minus the large piece of chocolate cake I had
last night, I feel like I am ready to have a balanced and healthy week.
In college it’s a real struggle to balance
health, school and social life. I usually
find myself caught in one of the three, ussually school. When I am overly focused on one area, I realize
that the quality of my life goes down significantly. If I neglect working out or eating healthy on
a regular basis I usually get irritated, moody, or anxious. The key for me is making a schedule. I block out specific times when I am going to
eat, workout, do work, and hangout with friends.
By 4:00pm I know that its time to workout.
Here is my workout for the day:
150 m sprint
20 jumping jacks
30 mountain climbers
20 sit ups
(I repeated this set 6x.)
After I finished my workout I went to the dinning hall and prepared myself a healthy stir fry with gluten free soy sauce. For dessert, I ate some yogurt with raisins and nuts. Its been a good and healthy day. I've got a feeling this is gonna a wonderful week :)
