Day 365!

Sunday, September 15, 2013

Today is the final day in my one year challenge, DAY 365! After I take my walk to today I will have completed one solid year of walking outside for one mile every day. It's a proud moment because in the past year my life changed dramatically for the better since I took the time for self improvement every day. In celebration I am going to take stock in my major accomplishments:

1. I got promoted to administrator of my department
2. I lost 25 pounds.
3. I started school again and got my dream of going to medical school back on track.
4. My finances are under control.
5. Most importantly I feel more whole and complete than I ever have in my life.

Granted there so much work left to be done but after looking at this list, I will remain ever hopeful for the future. Tomorrow as I start a new year of my challenge, I am going to add two more: a personal goal and a physical goal. What's going to happen? I am going to take my physiology test in the morning then spend the day on myself. First on the list, buy new walking shoes! Second is to spend as much time as it takes seriously considering what two new challenges to tack on to my daily routine.

You can't see it, but I am smiling. More like beaming internally and coyly grinning on the outside.

    emoticon Time for a happy dance!! We are in very similar situations. I lost 28 lbs, exercised almost every day and started SP in August. I am studying to take the Certification Exam to specialize in hands as an Occupational Therapist. This is something I have put off for many years and SP gave me the confidence to do it.

Good luck with your medical schooling! I can't image all you need to study. The amout of information I am studying is overwhelming, but yours is even more. I have 49 days until I take the exam so I have been really hitting the books. SP is my quick escape between study!

Have a one year party with all the food and ETOH or buy a new medical book. The reference materials are ridicously costly.

God bless you and say a prayer for Anna (me)! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
