So who was that psycho that wrote in here that I'd be getting up at 6 and working out, etc? What I think I forgot during all of this was that if I plunge in too deep too fast, then I will abandon ship pretty quickly, because I'll wear myself out.

What I need to remember is that I need to eat when I'm hungry, stop when I'm full, drink tons of water and not a lot of soda, and exercise daily. The nightly Yoga is a good idea, which I'll keep. And I'll still do the weights and kickboxing Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and the belly dance Tuesday and Thursday. But it'll be different than I originally intended.

For example, Monday I'll kickbox and do my weights between my classes -- I have from 11:15 to 2:00 to go back to my room, work out, and then have some lunch and get to class. Tuesday, I'll work out when I get up. Wednesday, I can kickbox and do weights before my 10:00 if I get up early enough, but most likely I'll do it after 1:15, when I get out of that class. Thursday, I'll belly dance between 11:15 and 2:00. And Friday, I'll do it when I get up, before I get ready to go home.

The problem is motivation. I have to continue to remember why it's so important to me, because I tend to lose sight of my goals.

Anyway. I think I can do it. I'm chilling right now, watching Law & Order, until Dan gets out of work and calls me. Then I'll go hang out with him.

Okay. I'm leaving now, to go do other stuff. Bye.
