College + Work + Life = Help!

Classes start on August 27th, and this semester I am taking 4 classes. The last few years, since I've started, I had only been taking 2 classes a semester because that was more than enough for me to handle with work. I work full-time, and at times we work events so I have to take all of that into consideration when registering for my courses; balancing work and school while keeping my grades up.

Last semester I upped my classes to 3 because I wanted to try and finish off my Associates by the end of this year, which is an amazing feeling to know that I am almost there! This semester it comes out to 4 classes because my Biology course consists of the lecture and lab, so that is like two, plus my Spanish class and Communications class.

If there is anyone else who can give me tips on how to stay motivated during the fall semester, I'd greatly appreciate it! Normally during my breaks I am more active, but once classes start I get very overwhelmed, stressed, and exhausted and it ends up being a huge challenge just to get at least ONE workout day in. I finally got back my motivation to eat healthy and exercise, but now that the beginning of the semester is around the corner, I want to at least try and make some sort of game plan!

I already joked around with some friends that this semester's diet is going to consist of a lot of coffee and red bull lol Of course I'm not going to do that... much... but I'd love some tips from some fellow Sparkers!

Thanks in advance!

    Oh, my! What a full plate! I think the important thing is habit-building. You don't need motivation to do a lot of things you do in a day, just because they are a habit. If you make exercise a habit, then it's something you won't have to think about.
