30 Days

Boy, it has been well over a month since I posted last, and a lot has happened in that month. I started working again and I am on the cusp of finishing my certification program, my best friend got married, my little brother got engaged, my brother in-law graduated and one of my sisters just landed  her first career job since graduating with her PhD! Whew. I feel worn out all over again. With all these things going on my budget, diet, and workout schedule have gone in the tanks. Ah life. Time to get back on the horse.

First up, I am successfully on track to watch 52 new movies this year. Yeah, that is almost cheating on my New Year’s resolution, as that is probably the easiest one to tackle, but at least it’s one thing. Baby steps.

We failed quite miserably on our attempt at playing the Game On Diet. I was about to make a million excuses, but really that’s all they are, so I won’t bother. We will be playing again in April. It is fun to keep each other sort of accountable anyway.

A few weeks ago, when I was chatting with my mama, she told me an interesting tidbit. While listening to the radio, one of the guests took on 30 day challenges, in an effort to keep himself engaged in whatever project for at least a month. I have been thinking about that for a while now. I have several things I do want to accomplish but I never seem to dedicate the appropriate amount of time to them. So, April 1st will be the start of my first 30 day challenge. I’ll let you know what I have chosen when I choose it.

Over the next few weeks I will have several topics I do want to talk about. Chocolate has been on the forefront of my mind as I close in on my certification as a professional chocolatier. Health care has also been on my mind what with being a nurse and all. I am not sure I want to delve too deeply into politics, but I will likely brush into it. Education has also been on my mind. Three topics that will likely span multiple posts and I still have so many other things I want to discuss. Here is to the next 30 days!
