In one week and one day I will have graduated with the degree that is step one in furthering goals I set out for myself at 16. I’m pretty excited to have reached this point. It has not been easy. I wanted to quit many times when I felt it was just too much. Thanks to the support from my husband, my Mom, and my girls telling me to just get my homework finished already, I kept at it. Now, once I get past finals week, I’ll have a little more than two months off before I set off on step two with the next degree.
While at times it feels I may forever be a student, the most important thing I’ve learned is to take everything one step at a time, one task at a time, one day at a time, keep going, and you will see progress. This has been applicable to everything in my life. From school, to work, to weight loss, to lifting heavy things and putting them back down. It’s the strategy I keep going back to the most. Also, don’t quit or stop because of one set back. There are many times I could have quit. It would have been easier to walk away, but I didn’t.
So what will I be doing during my break from school? Working, oly lifting, CrossFit, getting the girls ready for back-to-school, and working on some exciting updates for Nourish to Fuel. I asked you, the readers, on Nourish to Fuel’s Facebook page and my personal Facebook page, what you wanted to see here on the blog. As a result I have some great posts and website updates upcoming, that will give you the information you’ve asked for. I’ll also be learning and playing with a fancy new camera, my soon to arrive first DSLR, to improve the images on the website. I took photography classes back in the day (the 90’s) as a teen with my awesome 35mm Pentax. But have to re-learn how to use more than a point and shoot camera.
Thank you all for your early support and encouragement of the site and the work I’m sharing. It is greatly appreciated. Stay tuned for more amazing content as the website and Nourish to Fuel community grows.
