Hey Friends! How’s it goin?
I’ve got a question for ya: Have you ever heard of Working Woman Weight Gain?
No? I’m not surprised- I just made it up. It’s kind of wordy, so I’m open to renaming suggestions.
Anyway, what is it you ask? Well it’s basically the adult version of the freshman 15.
My Brush with the Freshman 15(x2)
When I was in first year, I gained almost 30 pounds- I was homesick, depressed by the cold and had seemingly unlimited access to all the junk food in the world. That did not make for a healthy Giselle.
It took a while, but eventually I figured out how to stay mentally and physically healthy in school, the pounds started to come off and I breathed a sigh of relief.
But this summer, I learned something while trying to juggle a full time job, blog responsibilities, volunteering positions and my social life: Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be a lot harder in the real/working world than doing the same while in school. Fortunately, it’s not impossible.
