I know I should be studying which I should be doing now bc I have test tomorrow but.. I’m not I am tired but I manage to come here to ask questions…but anyway, On Tuesday and Thursday is my big day I have a five hour break in between classes. Well on my break I try not to spend money which is hard bc a lot shopping around here and study but I can’t like. But I know I should be studying bc by the time I get home its too late to study if I have a test or something bc I get home at 11pm. Then in the morn have to wake up at 6 nd the cycle begins again.. But my question is how to mnage all of this. How do I settle down and do my work and now continue to buy useless stuff and to watch what I eatting being away from home. I dont want to spend any more money and I do what to watch what I eat and I do want to do good in school but im always tired always and when Im not im too lazy to do my work……. i bring stuff from home to eat bc im trying to eat smart, I try to limit my spending bc im in debt and I try really hard to study on break but its seems impossible sometimes bc im so tired.

    FOOD FIRST!!
    start eating healthy
    Your body needs at least 40 nutrients to work well, and you get these nutrients through food and supplements (like vitamins). Food is divided into three categories: carbohydrates, protein and fat. Each of these provides vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Too much of any one category can throw your body’s balance out of whack.

    Let’s go back to those burgers. Say you eat them for lunch and dinner every day. Well, burgers are red meat, which is protein. Too much protein is hard on your kidneys and can even damage them. Too many carbs (candy bars, pasta, bread) on the other hand, might make your pancreas work overtime which can increase your chance of getting diabetes. Fats are a little more confusing because they are divided into “good” and “bad” fats. Bad fats can hurt you by possibly clogging your arteries and increasing your chance of heart disease.

    Carbohydrates
    Carbohydrates or “carbs” are the sugars and starches found in foods like bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, cereals, dried beans and peas, and sugars. According to most nutrition experts, carbs should make up the bulk of your diet. Carbohydrates provide your body with valuable vitamins, minerals and fiber.

    There are two kinds of carbs:

    * Simple carbs — found in sugars like honey, fruit, candy and even non-diet soda.
    * Complex carbs — found in the starchy foods (bread, pasta, rice and certain vegetables.)

    Fats
    Fats are a great source of energy but they have more calories per serving than any of the other groups – about 135 calories a tablespoon compared with 60 calories for a tablespoon of protein. Some fats are better for you than others. Steer clear of transunsaturated and saturated fats, and cholesterol. These are found in animal fats and can be harmful to your body in large amounts.

    Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, found in natural vegetable oils, actually help your body function. In Mediterranean countries (Italy, Spain, Greece) where olive oil is used a lot, there’s a low rate of heart disease and breast cancer. Some fats are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These are mainly in fish oils, and actually protect your body against diseases such as atherosclerosis and arthritis.

    Protein
    Proteins, found in meat, poultry, fish, milk, eggs, soy products, beans, seeds, cheese and other foods, give your body amino acids that help build and maintain tissue. Your body needs protein for repairing cells, too. Most people tend to eat more protein than they need – and they get that protein mostly through meat and cheese, which isn’t so great. Only about 10-15% of your total intake each day should be from protein.

    EXERCISE
    Write down your weekly goals, and make them realistic. Plan to exercise 3 times a week as your goal. If you do it 4 times, then you’ve really made extra progress. Reward yourself for the achievements. (It can be as little as a chart with gold stars, or as great as a new piece of clothing.) Think of this as positive moves to your goal! You’ll feel better physically and mentally.
    also count calories

    Advice:
    * Set realistic and specific goals
    saying to yourself that you want to get in shape and have the body of a super-model means sure disaster for two reasons.

    1.
    Only 2% of all women can have a super-model’s body.
    2.
    It’s not a realistic goal. You need to set a more realistic goal! Say to yourself: “I want to be able to run for 30 minutes without stopping” or “I want to lose 5 pounds.” These are goals, which make sense and can be achieved.

    * Set short-term goals within the bigger plan
    For example, make it your short-term goal to lose 1-2 pounds by the end of Week 1 of your program, or to run 10 minutes every other day of Week 1.
    * Work out in the morning
    Studies show that people who exercise first thing in the morning are more likely to stick to their routine. Why? Because nothing else comes up. There’s no sudden invitation to go see a movie or go to a yearbook meeting at 7:30 a.m.! If you have a hard time getting up in the morning, lay out your exercise clothes the night before so you see them as soon as you wake up.
    * Get a motivated friend to join you
    Working out with a friend is a great way to keep you on task. Just make sure your exercise partner is as motivated as you are about getting in shape so you stay on track.
    * Keeps an exercise diary
    keeping a record and a plan is a good way to track your progress — and keep you motivated. It will also help remind you of how far you’ve come!
    * Spice up your exercise routine
    Variety is the spice of life — and of a successful exercise plan. Following the same routine every day can get boring. So try other forms of exercise every other day — things like biking with a friend or even dancing count too!
    * Ask your family and friends to support you
    Tell your family and friends

    You should make a schedule.

    First of all, plan your school schedule then work. When you have breaks put on your schedule “homework” so you know that you need to do your homework at your break times. Then, let you have a day off for shopping but limit yourself for a certain amount of money you can spend such as 15 dollars. After you put your schedule all together, try to write down each day what you can eat (healty) and try to shop smart- buy smth that you can eat more than one time.
