Week 2 ~ New Beginnings

Week 2 of studies is almost in the books.  Still, I have one assignment to complete but feel pretty decent about the accomplishments from last week's assignments.  Getting into a groove with this quarter is not finding its way as easy as previous quarters.  I think I have the "let's get this over with already" feelings.  Gotta somehow gets out of the funk so I can actually get this over with, LOL.

This week's focus is to continue on the path with no soda's, so far this year has proven pretty good, with the exception of a few Ginger Ale's here and there.  I downloaded a new app for a 7-minute workout and hope to begin getting some kind of physical activity daily.

So, I need to give a Plexus update.  I have not been as consistent as I need to be.  I get busy and I forget.  I did pretty well last week, I think I missed a couple days tho.  So I was feeling today that I felt like I looked a bit slimmer, maybe it was the clothes, I don't know.  I decided to take some measurements (after I had just finished eating dinner, not a great idea but it is what it is).  My waist is down 1/2 an inch and hips down 1 inch.  Not bad.  This week with hoping to incorporate 7-minute exercise program I am hopefully I will begin to see some changes.

I have a goal to lose at least 20 pounds for graduation.  I would like to lose 30 but will take 20.

This weekend is the Jennifer Rothschild conference.  I had committed to going, honestly, I need to stay focused on my homework.  The break will be nice tho, a bit of a break may just refresh my brain cells to complete the work.

Let the week begin, onto my studies.  Until next Monday unless I feel inspired before hand.

Week 1 in the books

Week one is finished and we are on to week 2 of the year.  Last week was a whirlwind.

  • 4 day work week (those are always nice)
  • Next to the last quarter of school started
    • 3 classes - 10 assignments
      • 3 Discussions
      • 2 Projects
      • 2 Labs
      • 2 Written Assignments
      • 1 Live Classroom session
      • 1 Live classroom session missed
  • Took care of the boys so niece could spend day with her daughter participating in Junior Royalty.
This week promises to be just as busy.
  • 3 classes
    • 4 Discussions
    • 1 Project
    • 2 Labs
    • 1 Written Assignment
On top of all this, I am attempting to be healthier in my lifestyle.  Last week was a pretty decent week with not drinking sodas, taking lunch to work and getting back onto my Plexus products.  The week went well.  I didn't have any soda's until Friday when I needed to get some GingerAle for an upset stomach only to have to pull over on the side of the road on the way home.  Not fun.  I did get a great package in the mail, my new 4K TV.   Needless to say I needed to do homework Friday evening and instead spent the evening getting my new TV set up and laying around in hopes of settling my stomach (something I ate at lunch didn't agree with me).  Saturday I was completely off schedule with my Plexus products and continued to drink GingerAle.  Sunday was a day I hit the books and completed 6 assignments before midnight.  YEAH, everything was at least in on time and not late.  This week doesn't have as many assignments and hope that I can get on track to get assignments completed earlier in the week so I can start on week 3 when it comes available on Friday.  

Wow, tired already just looking at this.  

Last night I schedule my Disney break for the end of the quarter to go and spend the weekend.  

Well, today is a cold day, at least for the earlier part of the day.  Gotta run and get ready for work.  Have a great day!

New Year ~ New Things

This year is holding good things.  This year I will graduate with my Bachelor's degree in Information Security.  I have some goals for this year:

  1. Go somewhere NEW once a month
  2. Kick the soft drink habit
  3. Get back on my Plexus products
So far, so good.  I have not had any soft drinks.  Yesterday I received my Plexus products so I can begin my regime again.  Next is to take a before photo with my Plexus products and enter the 60 day Trim up challenge.  

I'm down to 2 quarters in school, the end is in sight.  This quarter is a little overwhelming, 3 classes, that is not so unusual.  The classes are averaging 11 assignments a week, on average that is about 3 more per week than previous quarters.  I know I can do this!

It's going to be a good year, hold on tight.
