…I’ll turn 30
…I’ll celebrate my 7th wedding anniversary
…I’ll spend year 13 with husband
…I’ll hopefully get pregnant (in December or later)
Lots of things coming up. A dear, sweet friend is also turning 30 and has her own events in 2013. Both of us have decided it might be a good idea to try to make 30 look better than 18. Our scheming will not only hopefully get our diet and exercise in line, but will also help us stay in touch more despite the crazy busy lives we both live.
Since we went Paleo three years ago, my weight hasn’t left a 5-pound window, nor have my measurements wandered outside of a 1-inch margin. Regardless, some things could be tightened up. I’m not always making the wisest food choices and grad school really rains on my exercise parade. Friend is in charge of outlining our food plan. I’ll share when she updates me on those goals. My plan for exercising is Body Pump at 24 Hour Fitness two times a week. If you’ve been around here for a while, this will seem odd because I’m typically a cross-fitter or weight-lifter. There is a handful of other women in my life who go or are interested in going to this class. I figure I’m doubling up if I’m getting a work-out and quality time with dear friends at the same time. So, unless I’m short on sleep (less than 7 hours), traveling, or sick, the plan is to take this class (or at least work out) two times a week. This is less frequently than at other times in my life, but it’s what is currently manageable. Grad school Year 2 is significantly harder than Year 1, and I’m expecting next semester to be even harder.
I’m also hoping this will give me more to talk about around here. My life the past couple of months has been hours of studying mathematical statistics, reading about latent variable modeling, and talking about multicultural education. That’s boring to the vast majority of you. Maybe this will be interesting. I’m also hoping to find some great new recipes to share.
