Happy Monday!

Someone sent me this last week and it struck a chord with me. It is easy to tell people to assume a positive outlook, but Amy Cuddy gives us some tips about how to use our bodies to change our mind.

 In two Fridays I have my first full evaluation of a client. No details as of yet, and I know I'm lucky this will be a partner task, but I am still nervous. Conducting parent interviews, administering complicated tests and accurately interpreting data terrify me. So many opportunities to look like a fool. Before the evaluation begins I am going to attempt the two minute challenge. 

What pose should I chose? Thoughts anyone? 


I've already started Monday off well. 

Had a tough, but good work out at CF813. Evidently my squat technique needs some work. *she grumbles* Some thins never change. 

Loaded my oatmeal up with morning with peanut butter and dried cranberries. At the last minute I threw in a few chocolate chips - yum! 

Now I need to stop procrastinating and get after studying for my phonology midterm. I've been in class for several weeks now but my brain doesn't feel like it is time for midterms. Its too nice out! Plus I'm used to quarters, where midterms happen during week 4 or 5 of the term. It is the 8th week of the term! If this were a quarter system I would be preparing for finals now. The time frame of semesters is so weird to me, but again, I digress. Two hours of studying are between me and spin class. Then its back to the books before three hours of class tonight. 

If school isn't going to create structure in my life then I will the only way I know how - by increasing my heart rate, letting the sweat pour and getting that much closer to truly sparkling!

  1. Your schedule makes me miss being in grad much free time to work out!

  2. I know it's amazing! I don't know what I will do in two years when I have to get a job : (
