Blog Challenge - Day 21

Sunday, January 26, 2014

I made it! It's the last day of the challenge!

As you may recall, my SparkFriend DogLady13 posted a blog challenge that looks like a great way to express and examine my goals and accomplishments, so I. AM. IN!

Credit where credit is due (DogLady13's blog post):

21. This is a long one. You just spent three weeks reflecting on yourself and your journey to a healthy lifestyle. Write yourself a heartfelt, loving intention to help you reach your goal.

Actually, it was more like three months, but who's counting?


I have been doing a lot of planning and making progress. I passed my certification exam (*just* received the official word this week. Gee, that only took six weeks), and celebrated my accomplishment. I even ordered new business cards.

I was recruited for a job that would have been awesome - setting up a QA team and strategy for a company that currently has neither - but the client isn't settled on their goals. Sure, they can still come back, but I'm moving on.

After a chat with The Hubster, I decided to sign up and train for the MS-150, a two-day bike rife that raises funds and awareness for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. I've ridden the event 8-9 times, but it's been a few years since the last one.

What does all of this mean? I think they are good steps on the way to my goals. Sure, I didn't get enough knitting done. I can work on that. But my career and fitness plans are moving forward. What's next? Well, the ride... and I was approached to write an article for an online software magazine... and I plan to co-author and present two papers at the annual conference of the ASEM. It's going to be busy and challenging, exactly the way I tend to do things.


Enjoy the remainder of the weekend, SparkFriends; stay warm and keep moving!!
