Senior year. Stereotypically, I shouldn't give two shits about what I'm doing. I'm only 16, and I've been accepted to 4 colleges, with 3 more awaiting acceptance. My classes should be easy, and I should have the time to do normal people stuff like have a job and do out of school activities like the rest of my class. What am I doing now? Taking 2 AP classes and a Biotech class, along with 3 other classes, and reffing/volunteering/robotics on the weekends. I get home daily at 8-9, do my ridiculous amounts of homework until 1-2am. I sleep, I wake up, repeat.
That's not what's really bothering me though. Before, I used to be in top shape. I never stepped foot in a gym in my life. All this was from doing soccer, swimming and diving competitively. Now I just don't have the time do any of that, let alone simply work out at home. I'm gaining a slight bit of belly, and am now like 20-30lbs overweight. Why? Because after being stressed and sleep deprived, eating out for 20 minutes with friends seems like the most exciting part of every week. I skip out on lunch so at least I'm not eating 4 full meals a day, and so I eat a moderately small breakfast at 8:00pm, a fast food "lunch" at 3:30pm with friends, and some dinner at 6:00pm. The rest of the time, I'm busy doing so much things.
I hate being shirtless now, but there's really not much I can do to help it. My metabolism isn't insanely fast like some people I know, and I don't have time to work out at the gym for a few hours. No one I know goes to a gym; they do their own activities that double as keeping them in shape. But I don't have time for those activities. I cant even do a quick amount of sets before I go to sleep because I need as much sleep as I can get, so I don't fall asleep and risk missing out on material that I'd rather not spend more time studying for the night after.
