Two Months Until Graduation

Hello Collegiettes!! 

In exactly two months I will be graduating! On May 7, 2011, I will be walking across the stage at JMU accepting my diploma. SCARY! This got me thinking about how far I have come since being a freshman at JMU. I am now a confident and strong woman. So, I may be confident, but my weight is a daily struggle for me. When I walk across the stage on May 7, in my purple gown, I don’t want to be worrying about how much I weight, what size my dress is, or if people are judging me from the audience.

The SELF Jumpstart Diet is preparing me for graduation day.  I’m not even a week through my diet and I already feel a lot better about myself.  Therefore, by graduation day I will not be worry about the previously mentioned things. But for now spring break is the only thing on my mind.  It is only day one here and I can tell that it is going to take a lot of will power to not sway from my diet. Spending most of the day in the car today left little time for exercising, but I chose healthy options while eating out: chargrilled chicken sandwich at Chick-Fil-A and half of a cobb salad at Senor Frogs.  We don’t plan on eating out every night, so at the grocery store we picked out healthy meals to make. I feel lucky to have friends on the trip that are supportive of my journey to lose the freshman 15. A run on the beach is on tap for tomorrow!
