I had to go to the doctor today (nothing to worry about). I definitely did not go in to have myself weighed, but it wasn’t until I was on the nifty electronic scale that I realized how much weight I’ve gained since leaving college. Curiously, living on an ACE stipend did wonders for my health. Having so many housemates around to bring variety into my diet was incredibly useful. Now that I’m living on my own, eating a lot of fast food because I work late so many nights, and spending basically the entire day sitting at my desk, I’m turning into a lump. It’s not necessarily that I’m gorging on bacon (though I do make Pasta Lindsay a lot, and that involves sausage), but I definitely don’t eat as well as I used to. It’s so paradoxical. As I settle into my life in Austin (I finally hung all my pictures today!), I really need to work exercise into my life. If I can make it happen, it’ll be the first time I have a regular exercise routine ever, but I don’t need to become Texas-sized to fit in to Texas, right?
