Getting back to it!

The summer is finally coming to a close for me. I wrapped up my internship after Labor day and moved back to my old apartment. San Francisco, you will be missed. Quite a bit.

I can’t begin to explain how much fun I had over the summer, but unfortunately it is starting to show. Somehow I managed to pack on a few pounds of delicacies in the past two months. Woops. This is something I have plans to combat in the coming months as I return to the hectic grad student schedule.

This afternoon I finally set my upcoming course schedule. It is about time and all since I start on Monday and just found out I’ll be a TA. And I’m trying to plan out my strategies for fitting in proper eating (like actually cooking once in a while…), marathon training, and perhaps even a social life. Any tips or techniques for accomplishing all of this would be greatly appreciated.

As of right now, I’m relaxing at my parent’s house in (sometimes) sunny (and always buggy) Pennsylvania. A few months ago I decided to register for Fitbloggin and I realized that this would allow me a short vacation in my old haunts. So far I’ve spent time with my two rambunctious puppies (we call one of them gorilla dog), seen my two best friends, hung out with my parents, and watched far too many episodes of NCIS and Criminal Minds (I have a problem).

Tomorrow I set off for Baltimore to see my grandmother and aunt for our bi-yearly luncheon. Unfortunately this is the issue with living far from your family, I only get to see them when I come home and that is happening less and less frequently these days.

After that, the parental units are dropping me at the hotel and I’ll be taking full advantage of everything Fitbloggin has to offer. Yoga class at 6am? Why not! (Note: This is if I can wake up at that time…) I’m looking forward to three days of awesome bloggers, great fitness classes, and some fantastic sessions. I’ll be liveblogging from the discussion: When You Have a Lot to Lose, so look for that post on the Fitbloggin page.

And if you see me at Fitbloggin, please come and say hi! Yes, I may look disoriented, a bit out of place, and overall confused, but I’d love to meet you!

Hope you all had a glorious summer! What exciting things did you do?
