I can do hard things
Saturday, January 04, 2020
I lost my fitbit! I'm so bummed, I took it off to shower and was sure it was just mixed in with the clothes but now I'm wondering if it fell into the trashcan...I'm super sad. The good news is I have managed to get in a few walks and workouts anyway even with the silly thought that, "they won't count". Ha Ha. You can always giggle at the way an "all or nothing" type person thinks. Hey Sue, I will email you!
I also have some good news. After ten years of little babies and late night online classes as well as a few crazy on campus semesters, I recieved a letter of acceptence for my university's nursing program! I actually started this journey at the same time I started SP and never really believed I would ever get through all the lower division courses to apply as well as get together all the other things that were required to have a competitive application. It's been a ride. I'm super excited/nervous but as I was working out today I realized that I can do hard things. I've gone through a lot to get here and it wasn't speedy. I will no doubt be the oldest in my class and I've been taught by people my kids' age while being lab mates with classmates of my fifth oldest. It was uncomfortable sometimes. It has been chaotic seeing to the needs of my family, working weekends and maintaining the required A's in my subjects. If got through that, and it's only going to get harder, then yes, I can finish my workout with Leslie Sansone and hold my hand weights without whining. I can go to bed less than stuffed, I can dial back on the caffeine and I can chop veggies when I don't feel like it. I am ready for the challenge and more motivated than ever. Bring it!!
Hopefully, I will be logging in more to say howdy. I read your blogs and am always grateful for you and cheering you on!
