beat the heat week9

Weight Wars
this week's questions:
  1. What have you achieved towards your goals this week?
  2. What have you done to make yourself feel fabulous?
  3. This is week 9 and the final week of the challenge! Is there anything you want to really push to achieve now?
  4. How have you felt through the challenge? Has anything been more difficult than you thought? Anything easier?
  5. Fun Question of the Week: Where do you fit in your family? Are you a middle child for example? How does that affect your “place” in the family?
question 1: (1) shaky at best. i count it as a win, but i only drank my daily allotment four of seven days. must stay on top of this better cause i'm starting to slip (2) jack shit. didn't get up and workout. didn't workout after work. didn't even pretend like i was going to. what a bust (3 & 4) these two i was actually on top of. i'm still doing pretty well with my new schedule, and i was right on target with weekly expenses. i'm on my fall schedule as of this morning since class starts tomorrow. no more working from home, but late wednesdays have returned :) (5) another bust, but i'm less concerned with this one. i'll be doing plenty of writing in the coming weeks for class purposes (eek)

question 2: nothing to feel fabulous, but i can tell you what i did to feel completely unfabulous. i drank a shit ton at a "survive the hurricane" party. well, the hurricane that wasn't. irene was down to tropical storm levels by the time she reached us *shrug* i paid for my over indulgence yesterday, spending most of the day in my jammies on the couch. though, leslie and i had a most delicious hangover breakfast once the power returned. cheese scrambled eggs, toast, homemade home fries and beer brats :)

question 3: no one thing over the others; they're all still equally important. i need to work harder on the fitness and water goals though

question 4: that's a tough one to answer. each goal has had it's hard and easy moments over the last couple months. various things have gotten in the way, including myself, but i knew there would be struggling. that's why i chose these goals in the first place. i know these are my problem areas, and i just have to keep working on them

question 5: i'm the oldest of three. not sure how much that really affects me. i got to do things first, but my parents had the same standards and expectations of all of us. we're all spoiled, even though my sister takes the most advantage of it. i consider myself the most responsible and reliable, but we each have our moments *shrug*

this is the text for my child & adolescent psych course. i am so fucking excited about classes this semester. child psychology is my ultimate focus so this class means more than anything else. i'm not a huge fan of group therapy, but i'm interested to learn proper technique and such. it's going to be an insanely intense semester, but i'm looking forward to the challenge :)
