I sort of had a goal to take a certification exam this year. I must take it by June but I haven't really studied for it yet because my work schedule has been so busy and I have been getting home so late. This exam takes about four months of so of study time so I am sort of in trouble. I talked to my manager at work today about making time to get it done. I am going to change my work hours so I can get off 30 minutes earlier. That way maybe traffic won't be so bad when I leave (and I will save time and get home earlier). I also asked her not to give me any NEW projects or tasks until I am done with the exam. I might be able to take some time off to study, and she also offered that if my work is caught up, I can study for about an hour each day at work. I have a great manager, and I am so grateful for her! She is very supportive. So now I must make this commitment and I know it is going to be crazy bad because I don't have enough time....

So then today I also decided to do a fitness challenge at work. My company is very health and fitness oriented and we have these sorts of things from time to time. I don't always do them but in a kind of spontaneous way I signed up for this one. I figured why not, I do it anyway...."it" is working out for four to five hours a week. Of course, with the exam looming, I might regret this because I might need to cut back on my exercise, but I am going to give it my best try!

    That's wonderful that your manager is being flexible in allowing you to study for your exam. I am sure it will definately help. The work fitness challenge sounds great! emoticon emoticon
