Can You Believe it’s February?

2015 – Wow! January has already come and gone and February is already 1 week over! They say time flies when you’re having fun! Am I having fun? Some days I would say yes and others I would say nope!

I retook my Spanish Language exam in the midst of doctors’ appointments and trips to the ER to figure out why I couldn’t swallow, and am still waiting to find out those results. I now know that my esophagus doesn’t like to work properly in the middle 30-40% of the time, but they are not 100% as to the cause yet so off to my docs I will go! So yes, good and bad days. But the difference this year? I am WAY MORE POSITIVE! I made some changes to the way I think. I can control some things and I can’t control others, so no more worrying about what I can’t control. I have my goals and dreams, and I will keep plugging away at them, and though I know they will take time I will get there!

Coming up there is my last subject-field exam, which I am planning for April which means I really ought to get that study plan in place (on my “to-do” for this weekend). I also have a TOEFL class to start taking – need to add that into the calendar. I’m thinking TV will be on the backburner for a while. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though.

Has the year already started flying by for you? Where are you at in your goals for 2015? I would love to know! Share in your comments below.

My journey continues

What exactly am I doing to get healthy, you may ask? I believe I mentioned in an earlier post the things that I had done to lose weight a few years ago: weight watchers, p90x and last year a stint with CrossFit and Paleo. The one I keep coming back to is BeachBody. So there must be a reason. When I decided to be honest with myself and make the choices I had to make to get myself healthy again, I decided to go with what I knew I liked, but I also knew I needed some extra accountability.

I chose Focus T-25 because it was ONLY 25 minute. Even I can manage that, right?!? Well, let me tell you I’m about to head into week 3 and I’ve lost 9lbs already. Well, I’m not going to lie some of that is from being sick, but more than half is from working out and eating healthy. I tell you this because I don’t believe health should be some well-kept secret that only those with tons of money can have. Being healthy is for everyone and it actually will end up saving you money because less visits to the doctors and when you plan out your meals you tend to spend less at the grocery store and you have less waste because you eat what you buy.

Sounds so simple, huh? Well, when I decided to try Focus T-25 I decided to sign up as a coach. I figured if I could help others while I helped myself that was a win-win. And it is because it keeps me ACCOUNTABIE!! Nothing is worse than not having like-minded people around you to help you with support and motivation. And, I won’t lie a little extra money helps too! So, if you want to get healthy with me, let me know. You can join a challenge group – you get me as your coach pushing you forward, support, motivation, and advice. Or you can step it up notch and be your own coach helping others – I will be there for you through that as well – we have a great team dedicated to helping new coaches.

Talk to you soon,

Support is amazing

Wow, cannot believe just how incredible everyone has been through the past 2 months:

  • Unemployment
  • Started my own business
  • Decided to apply for my PhD
  • Wrote and published my first eBook
  • And not to mention writing regularly on this blog, my other blog: and on my business plan

I’ve done all this while still looking for freelancing work, looking for an apartment, and trying to reorganize my life.  To say that some days have been hectic would be an understatement.  But to my friends and loved ones (many are in both categories :)) I love you all – without you none of this would have been possible.  I still have much, much more that needs to be done, but so much has already been accomplished.  This new journey is only a new chapter in my life; not sure where it is going to take me, but I am ready for this adventure and whatever the world has in store for me.

My very dear friend is coming into Boston tomorrow and we are meeting with my other bestie for dress shopping and then lunch.  They will be meeting for the first time!!!  I can’t wait!!!  And, my Mom might join us, so definitely looking forward to my Friday now, even more than before.

As the much needed and longed for thunderstorms are starting, I will wrap this out as the lights have already flickered twice.  Business plan time and then more on turning the MA thesis into a book 😀
