Happy Saturday all!
It's been a while since I've blogged. And by a while I mean like a year:) I honestly love to blog just haven't taken the time. Since I last blogged I got married! I enjoy being married a lot more than planning a wedding..being a bride just wasn't my thing...
I've recently been working my way through Chalene Johnson's Online 30 Days to Organization and Goals (www.30daypush.com if interested-it's FREE!). I've done it once before but knew I needed a refresher and someone to do it with to keep me on it (Thanks FEELINGFITERIN for being the best accountability buddy ever!). She also has a book out similar to it (PUSH) so if you like books more there you go.
Anyway back on topic here Casey! One thing she says to do is to tell others your PUSH goals so that you can stay accountable but I also like to do it so others know what I am working towards and what my priorities are. I've told those nearest and dearest to me but wanted to post online too.
**My health PUSH goal is to stay on the SCD Program for 90 days to get the right base program for me and to finalize all my base research on it. For those of you that don't know, I've struggled with Chron's/IBS for years now with no answers. I do NOT believe in meds and the medical community has failed me after millions of tests on answers. I was introduced to the SCD Nutrition plan a month or two ago. I have made HUGE progress on it so far (Day 21 on the official program!) but know I have some healing and learning to do (and lots of it). I have to say-it is by far the most challenging thing I've ever done in my LIFE. It has become mentally taxing on me as I know that it has to take priority right now and that means other areas of my life might have to take a backburner. That has weighed on me heavily but I know that through my faith this is what's right for me.
**PUSH: I am a huge Dave Ramsey/budget geek and always have been. We are working through the Financial Peace University as a family with the church group I volunteer in so I want to finish it with them and implement any changes we need to as a family (now that I am an old married lady:) to lead a faith centered financial life. We hope to be done with our changes by 6/1. We have made HUGE gains on our goals for finances by doing it and I feel like we lead a lot more simple/faith driven life because of it.
I have some other goals too but those are the 2 major PUSH goals right now. I have to say a HUGE thank you to my wonderful family and husband (and Erin my accountability buddy:) as they have been by my side through all this. A special shout out to my momma for always checking in on me daily to let me know she's there for me (and reading my SCD stuff-that's a dedicated momma right there!) and another shout out to my baby sister who can ALWAYS make me smile (welcome her to Spark at SIERRA8605-I call her SAWA!).
So...what's your PUSH goal??
This is me with Sawa on my wedding day-isn't she just gorgeous? I am partial to her:)
