I'm officially in school and taking my first course, anatomy and physiology. There's a lot of information to learn, but I'm loving it. I'm ignoring arthritis to make flash cards, so that has to mean something haha. I had the first thought last night that I might even want to proceed with my doctorate in the future. But I'm getting way ahead of myself. One course at a time.
I've been eating better because I'm not buying crap anymore. Salads are the new meal of choice for myself and Hubs. The fridge is full of veggies, we're stocked on salad dressing, and dinner is super easy now. It feels great to eat healthy, and it's even better when Hubs tells me he wants salad for dinner. :)
We did have a little headache-causing situation a couple of weeks ago. The next door neighbor was washing dishes when he got distracted by a work call and rushed out the door. He forgot to turn the water off. So Friday night, half our apartment was soaked. Maintenance got a guy in to clean all the water up and replace the carpet padding. I figured it would be much more difficult, but they were fast. I'm glad that we caught it when we did. The only damage for us was a wet box spring, and a night out on the patio dried it out.
My PCOS group is starting a new event called "Creating Goals with Soul" based on the Fire-Starter Sessions by Danielle LaPorte. We are starting with the free mini-book, Workbook o' Fire. My hope is that together we can set real goals and achieve them together. I want them to see the group as a useful means of support for anything. It's hard to fight PCOS alone. It requires hope in the future, belief in yourself, and a lot of self-care. We all need it, so why not support each other while we do it? We'll be working on this for 3 months, and hopefully we'll have the skills necessary to start really making those New Year's. We'll see how it goes. Now I'm off to study!
