    @T-rex

    8-9 hours would be great!

    Unfortunately I didn't go to sleep before midnight 🙁 It ended up being around 1:30…but I'm looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend, and hopefully that will start off a week of normal sleeping hours! I'm actually getting a little hoarse and feeling slightly under the weather – staying up late must finally be catching up to me 🙂

    Enjoy a relaxing weekend everyone!

    Thanks!! Looking forward to feeling better!

    I kind of have to go to work for a few hours today, but it's been great not to have a pressure to study! Sometimes I feel like I'm supposed to be studying instead of whatever else I'm doing, but then I remind myself that I don't have to (at least not for the CPA exams)…

    It would be so amazing if this studying could actually be over! Just a few more weeks till score release time!

    In about 5 minutes, I'll begin my new exercise routine. I'm pretty excited to be back to exercising. My plan is to workout 3 times per week for an hour each time. In my pre-CPA exam days, I would work out for 5 to 6 days per week for 30-45 minutes each time. I'm curious to see what kind of results the 3-times-per-week workouts will get me. Of course, if I failed FAR, this new routine will come to a halt in about 2 weeks.

    Ya i'm wondering how much i really want to commit to losing my CPA weight. If i don't pass my sections, then im back to my comfort foods in october while i study and I would have wasted all my september workout efforts. Part of me just wants to enjoy life and take a mental vacation while I wait for scores. If im focused on counting calories and working out, then im not really taking a mental vacation.

    Continuing with the eye health, you may want to try https://stereopsis.com/flux/ — It's a free software that changes the lighting on your computer at night so it doesn't hurt your eyes so much. I also found it helped me to work late in the night without having trouble going to sleep after because of staring at the computer monitor.

    @CalCPA,

    There's nothing wrong with wanting a break. Live it up! I can relate to needing a mental vacation, and I definitely don't like the idea of having to halt my workouts if I fail FAR.

    @wecandothis, What a neat software!

    Has anyone trained for a marathon while studying for the CPA? I'm contemplating it!

    training for a marathon takes a lot of time out of your day and I just don't have that time available while studying…I am going to shoot for training for a half marathon as soon as I am all done but for now I just stick to workouts that are an hour or less.

    exercise has actually kept me in check for studying. i refrain from going out, partying, drinking cause i know i have to wake up at 5am to go running, can't run with hangover. my daily routine:

    run 3 miles

    study 1-2 hrs before work

    work

    eat dinner and take 1 hr nap after work to recharge the batteries

    study 2-3 hrs

    watch tv 1 hr

    sleep

    i injured my knee a few weeks ago and have been slacking in exercise and studying big time!! its like i have no reason to wake up early, which gives me a reason to have more than a few drinks the night before.

    my knee is all healed up now so time to get back on track!!!!

    I need frequent breaks between lecture sections and question sets, so between I do push-ups, crunches, body weight squats, anything I can do to get moving for a few minutes and then sit right back down. I keep a large Nalgene bottle on the desk with me and sip on that whenever I'm tempted to go downstairs and get some snacks.

    I was working out 5-6 days/week before resuming my studies. Now I'm down to 3 at the most. I am offsetting my lack of exercise with a super clean diet though – hardly any processed foods.

    I have found that avoiding excess sugar/salt/etc in my food helps me stay awake/alert a lot more easily.

    Ugh!

    just venting …went to the dentist 2day. Sat in the chair for 2 1/2 hours, felt yukky all day long. All the healthy talk is motivating, hoping to get back on the exercise train tomorrow!

    I put on 9 lbs while studying for the first 2 sections and I'd rather not gain another 9 (or more!). I joined a gym that offers plenty of free classes and hope that'll motivate my to get my butt in gear. I somehow survived a boot camp-type class yesterday and can barely walk up stairs today… Tomorrow won't be better but at least I know the pain will pass and my jeans will one day fit the way they should!

    This thread is great! Good luck to everyone with the exams and the pounds!

    I look torn up these days, which isn't going to help my dating life.

    Just to put a positive spin on this process, did anyone get so stressed out during all of this (studying, test taking, exam score waiting, etc.) that they actually ate a lot less the whole time? Don't know if it was nerves or what, but I ended up losing some beer weight thanks to this whole thing, and that's after I stopped going to the gym. Silver lining perhaps?
