FDT task 1 has......

Finally passed!!!
 
It's been sitting in taskstream for about 3 days now. It was picked up the day that it was turned it but for what ever reason I am just getting the notification. I hate when that happens lol
 
None the less, I am super excited that it has passed. I am still working on "the beast," task 2. The research is a lot to do. I am still hoping that I can get it done in time.

Setting my goal and reaching it

So I have about 2 weeks left in my term and still have once class that I need to finish it. I always seem to be working my behind off at the last minute. Each semester I tell myself that the next will be different and I won't be leaving it until the end.
 
Well here I am and have 3 more task to finish up. Not to mention that task 2 is the biggest and hardest task I have ever had.
 
So to meet my goal I have decided that if I finish this class up before the end of my semester I will purchase a new pair of boots and purse :) Maybe the thought will keep me motivated enough to get through the paper.
 
So far I have completed the first portion, which I did over think. I feel like it meets the requirements so I am going to move on to the research which I have all the sources for.
 
Wish me luck as I try and get this done :)

Dieting

So to help release some stress I have decided to try working out and eating right. Eating right is a very hard thing for me to do. With kids they are always wanting sweets. Something that I can't have :(
 Starting today I will be eating healthier. I have planned out all my meals and will be working out 40 minutes or more a day.
 
Starting weight 132 lbs :(
 
Going to try and update this every Monday with my progress. Hopefully I can stick to it lol
 
Meals for today
 
Breakfast 3 scrambled eggs and a grapefruit
Snack some nuts
Lunch Turkey wrap and an apple
Snack String cheese
Dinner Pot Roast with brown rice

Getting my education on

So for the last few months I have been busy trying to complete my degree. I am attending Western Governors University, an online college. I am working toward a bachelors degree in elementary education. It's very hard to keep up with the work because the course work is online.
 
When I tried the online courses at a traditional college, I failed miserably. Here at WGU I must say that it isn't that bad. There is so much support from the staff that I am able to motivate myself and keep moving forward.
 
Currently I am working on FDT4 task 2. This task is horribly long. I only have 17 days left in my term to complete this task and 2 others. I am hoping that with the support from my mentor, a little motivation, and some coffee I can successfully complete this term.
 
Wish me luck....

What Makes Me Happy

What makes me happy...
 
Number one on this list is seeing my kids happy. That is what makes me the most happy. They are just a big ray of sunshine and they make everything feel ok. And, their father. He blessed me with them and I am grateful everyday for that. He is also amazing with them. I couldn't have asked for a better father for my kids.
 
This is a poem I read a long time ago that I kept that reminded me of what I feel like most days being their mother.

What I Would Do For You

© Jayne Sena
         
I would do just about anything you'd ask,
For you there's nothing I wouldn't do, there's no such task.

I would walk without my shoes to the end of the Earth,
I would give up anything I had to, to teach you self worth.

I would hold your hand every minute of every day,
But I won't because I know you need to find your own way.

I would surely bear the heartache of your first love that's real,
Even though I can't, I will naturally feel as you feel.

I would sell my soul if it would keep you happy forever,
I would give my right arm to keep us forever together.

I would run a hundred miles up-hill in the rain,
Just to guarantee that you will never feel pain.

I would laugh with you even if I was sad,
I will give you a smile even if I'm mad.

I can only accept your mistakes with a grin on my face,
I will guide you in correcting them, but at your own pace.

I will guide you through life, as this world can get quite wild,
Just don't you ever forget that you will always be my child.

My Favorite Quotes

 
So I went around looking for the quotes that are my favorite. I knew from the beginning I needed to have a little Marilyn Monroe in here. She has been an inspiration to a lot of woman.
 
 


This quote is definitely my number 1. There is a reason for everything. Things change, but we must learn from everything and grow.
 
 

 
A little Albert Einstein.

 
I know that there are a lot of Kardashian haters out there. I really do enjoy them. They are an inspiration to all, for showing that dreams do come true. With hard work and perseverance anything is possible.

 
And lastly......

Blog Challenge day 1-Selfie and 5 Random Facts

1. I am obsessed with makeup. I mean I buy so much and end up using it only once lol
 
2. I didn't get my drivers license until I was 21. My mom didn't let any of us get our license when we turned 16 because she didn't want to be held responsible for any of our accidents. It was a bummer because when I graduated from high school I had to take the bus EVERYWHERE! I did that up until I had my first child. Then I wasn't allowed to take the bus anymore, someone chauffeured me around.
 
3.I have been with my boyfriend for 13 years and we still are not married. We have talked about it, but it's not really a priority. We have been fine for all these years, and it's only a piece of paper.
 
4. I have never, EVER, been to a concert. Isn't that weird!? I always want to go to one but I never have anyone to go with lol I am such a loner.
 
5. I am back at school again. Not what I initially intended on going to school for when I was younger. I am just happy to be there. Hopefully to succeed and make my children proud.

And here is me :)
