Hmmm, I don't think I'm going to entirely escape from the "flu bug" that flew into our house the other day....my head feels so stuffy this morning!!!! So I'm sitting here drinking a glass of guava juice, munching on some almonds and thinking of the week ahead of me.
Back to work.
Back to school.
AND.......it will become "back to school" for me in full force as of Sept 17th as I was accepted into my Masters program!
I'm excited...but also holding my breath as I'm looking for funding to pay for it ~ I know I can do it....it's there!!!!
This particular program allows me to continue to work full time as well....which is exactly one of the reasons that I like about it, that and the internship hours make it into a relevant situation and not one entirely based from lectures etc!
Additionally....my sister in law and brother in law came to visit for a few days.
My hubby hasn't seen his sister for 2 years and last night it was a great bbq, lots of laughter and stories and the 2 siblings planning their visit!
I can really see myself slipping into good old emotional eating habits already if I don't set myself up for options galore this coming week!
(Oh yeah....and on top of all of this...my "glow light and internal heater" is on high mode right at the moment...whoo boy I love being 47!)
OKAY ~PLANNING FOR SUCCESS!
#1 Buying lots of fresh produce from the farmer's market today!
#2 Making sure I have containers to pack my food into for: lunches etc! Buying cooler packs to keep my water and "freggies" cold during the day at work!
#3 Water, water everywhere....continue to drink water!!
#4 Planning out the week for exercise (creating plan A's and plan B's)
#5 Getting the laundry under control so that my exercise clothes are ready to go!
#6 Going to the bank to apply for a personal loan for schooling....and then I'll know whether I can go ahead with the program....
#7 Finish any "loose ends" before the long weekend so that I can start the year off on a good foot!
#8 Give myself moments to breath.
#9 Go to the beach for the sunset glow and watch my hubby chase fish with his fishing rod (pure entertainment, and a great way to relax with my sketchbook!)
#10 Remember that every day is a gift.
