Life Changes

"Times they are a changin"
So I've been sort of just going through the motions. I haven't been living. I am making changes and this is likely going to be my last 'carefree' summer for a long time. I am going back to school. In September, I'm going to be taking courses that are prerequisites to the courses I will be taking in the winter. In January, I will be taking the Personal Support Worker course which runs until August. Then in September 2011, I will be taking Nursing courses. Life will be hectic and a bit scary, but I'm up for the challenge.

I have to rethink the half marathon now tho. My foot isn't getting any better, and time will be hugely encroached upon. If I don't do it now, now worries, I WILL do one before I'm 45!

I'm in huge need of endorphins, so I have also decided to give P90X another go, for real, and bust out what I can. I was feeling really good on it the last time. I have no doubt that this time I will lose 30 pounds, if not more.

I'm also going to be really busy around the house this summer, decluttering, summer-cleaning, etc. And the youngest girls will have swimming lessons every day for 3 weeks. This time, I'm going to really enjoy that beach time, especially since I'm 60+ pounds lighter! :o)
I have a rock garden to make for the girls, with the girls. That's going to be nice for them. It's going to be therapeutic for me too.

So, thats what is on my plate for the summer and the next 2 years. I say bring it. Bring it all!

Right back at ya sweety! I'm so glad we had a chance to talk this morningj! I'm in a better head space right now! Don't know about doing P90X again right now...but after the long weekend...I've decided to start the Jillian Micheals 30 day try and lose a little weight before I go to Vegas on the 27th of July!! Taking the time to get my business up and running, and working on loving me...all of me! Hoping to see you and Pammy at some point during the summer too!!

Going through the motions...that's the perfect saying. We've all been doing that. INstead of just grabbing life by the horns and going for it...we are just phoning it in.

Life hands ya lemons...ya make lemonade!!!!

Time to shake it off girls and get back to it. You can dwell on things and let them hold you back or you can take charge of your own life and get to it!

I'm choosing to take charge this time!!! Who's with me?

Oh, I'm taking charge baby, hence the changes.
This is MY life. It's about freaking time I strted living it! :o)

Pitbull said...

Okay...okay already!! Grabbing the ol bull by the horns eh? Rather grab the balls...bigger, better reactions that way!! LOL!! I'm with ya baby! July 5th I start fresh in EVERY way! Taking total control of my life! For once and for all!!!

FYI - I don't know where you will be going to school but I just found out that the college I am attending has a gym that has open hours, free of charge to all students. Plus it is manned and it is like having your own personal trainer. I thought you might want to check it out... Good luck with everything - sounds like you have a great plan!
