To update on my Independent Learning Project, it’s not going quite how I would like it to yet. It’s been a rough week and very busy to say the least. I’m not trying to make excuses because life doesn’t care and will not stop for you and just keeps moving forward. I would say that this wasn’t a great week for my project at all. I know it’s just the beginning and only a minor set back. I have not been eating the best and have only been staying active through softball and not doing much extra work on my own. I think once I get into a routine again that will help a lot! My self control and self-discipline need to be worked on. I’m a sucker for cravings and usually give into them. It’s hard when friends what to meet up and go out to eat or to have some drinks. I know it won’t kill me if I have some bad food here and there but I need to remember to that it’s okay in moderation.
Softball is starting soon, which means traveling and eating on to go. That usually means eating fast food. After the games or on the bus, we always think that we’re starving so then we take advantage and pig out. My coach likes to go to Dairy Queen and Wendy’s so that never helps.
I hope to make a change here soon. I know it’s going to take a lot of training and determination. I have to just buckle down and believe in myself. I will continue to try and improve each week. Like I said I hope when I get back into a routine it will help a lot. It means I won’t be eating out and having drinks, but it does mean I will be eating on the road. I just need to make better choices at the places we go. I have learned so much about myself and even what it takes so far that I’m interested to see what it will be like when I do a better job. Like I said this wasn’t my best week for my project, but I still have a number of weeks to keep learning.
