It took a long time but this is the first ALL-healthy day I have had since I got back from Bali! So I am breathing a big sigh of relief because I could feel myself spiralling downwards for a while there (sorry for the last whingey post!). I put on a kilo but now I am back down to 121kg, thank goodness. I have booked myself in for a one day juice cleanse this Friday, because it’s proven to be a good tool in the past for getting back into the swing of healthy eating.
I am still feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the uni work but I am just trying to get it done bit by bit. I’ve been studying for 8+hrs every day just to get back up to speed, it’s madness, and I am still a little bit behind now but I’m closer than I was at least!
I got some good news and some bad news this week actually. I received an email saying that because my GPA was within the top 5% of all uni undergrads (!!!!!! I’m sorry to boast about this but my GPA was 1.85 when I did nursing and now it’s 4, its so weird being in the good category!!), I’ve been invited to take part in a thing where I do four extra units during the degree, and I’ll graduate with a Bachelor of Psychology AND a postgrad certificate in Business Administration, which would obviously look pretty good to future employers, having a post-grad qualification already. So that was the good news. The bad news is that I can’t do it because its spread out over 2 years, and I’ll be in Sydney at a different university by then! I’m having a big internal debate as to whether I should just stay here by myself when my family move to NSW and finish my degree here, or if I should just forget about the post grad certificate, go to Sydney and do an online diploma in business admin over summer term. I don’t know what to go with at the moment, and that’s causing a little bit of stress as well.
I feel happy about having my eating back on track though. Now I just have to incorporate daily exercise, and time for study, and get all my decisions made, and I will feel super happy!
I hope you have had a great past few weeks. I find it a great comfort that I can come on here and vent all my feelings. I’m so grateful to you for reading it as well :)
