What will you do?


Today's challenge from Holley was all about looking at our life and taking that step now that we have removed something from our life that could stand in the way of the dream.  I took out my TV (except for Monday night Biggest Loser) and found that this past week was still so crazy that I didn't get done all that I needed to during the week BUT, I didn't fritter away my time staring mindlessly at the tv either.  This week will be a good test of my time.  I'm not counting Monday since it's not part of my week but I do have a long day on Tuesday and then the rest will be "normal" with a dr appt on Thursday so no school for me that day.  My plan is to try to work a little every night on various things.  I have a menu plan set up- I need to set up a nightly plan as well- what I will work on both personally (you know, house stuff) and professionally to get ahead.



Now, my big step will be two fold- one, I will actually make that plan and two, this week I will be filling out the application for a local class to be held in May on health coaching.  It's a one day thing and costs about $100.  The application has to be turned in by April so I want to get this going.  I will be mailing the application and check next Monday, the 25th (so feel free to hold me accountable).  The online nutrition class is way more science oriented then I ever wanted so it's kicking my rear (in a good way) but I am not a quitter so I am determined to finish- no matter what!  Thanks for sharing my dream with me!  ETA: I downloaded the reading for this week- I have a request in to switch from an application level (quiz, plus, a travel plan for eating, plus a mind map/webbing for this week-week 5, 7, and 9).  This mind map took me FOREVER on week 3 and this week's material alone will take me hours to read, let alone process.  Anyway, I have requested to an understanding level which is reading the material and quiz only.  The only difference is that I won't get a certificate (which I am okay with) :)  I'll see what comes of my question.

I like reading you are not a quitter. But make sure you don't overload yourself so that you feel like you need to. Oh, now you know why your 60 y/o father does not go back to school for more education. You think you have trouble? Yikes! Add 23 years onto your age and you know where I am. :)

LOL- that's why I put in the request- I don't know if I just don't turn them in if it will happen that way or not. At this point I may just do it. There's very little communication from the instructor. I am hoping that the next one that starts in april is more geared to what I want (according to the description it is)

Good luck! I like that you see what is working for you and taking the steps to you need to be effective. Go you!!

And good luck with the class. I'm not a science person, so I know it would kick my butt too!

Oh, how I love the quote you shared!! Thank you!
And, as we journey, may we persevere and encourage each other along the way.

You know Stefanie- that's one thing I am learning- that the support of others is one of the most important parts of this journey
