The Winds of Change

Sunday, January 15, 2012

With college orientation now complete my winter break is officially over. Trying to navigate a new school campus, new procedures and all the new classmates and professors is giving me serious transfer shock. Take a deep breath…..I can do this. After this first semester I have no doubt that everything will fall into place. Next semester will be a breeze.
All the unknowns during this time of change is really challenging for me. Not only am I changing schools but, my schedule, financial aid, job and future income are all in questions right now. Everything should be settled in the coming week. I will feel much more relaxed once all the details have been worked out.
As much as I love school and the opportunity for an education, I long for the security of a steady full-time job with benefits and a steady pay check.
I live in the same town as my college campus but, parking downtown is difficult at best. So, I need a plan to get downtown by bus. The good news is that I will be doing a lot of walking. That means plenty of fitness minutes to log! I also need to spend some time planning my meals so as to have plenty of good options with me. I don’t want to fall into the fast food trap.
This is such an exciting time! All I need is a little planning to keep me on track and focused on my fitness goals.

    We thrive and grow on change even though it does bring up fear of the unknown and fear about change. We get stuck don't we! Glad you are reaching out of the box.

    Congrats! You'll do fine.

    I'm sure once classes actually start, everything will fall into place. Anticipation is always the scariest part of change. Great idea to plan, to avoid the fast food scene. And you're right, all that walking will be fabulous! Enjoy!
