February crept up really fast. January was a good month, and I was very happy with myself. I've been learning to be my own best friend and handle a lot of stressful situations such handling my classes and handling graduation process very well.
To update you guys on my current academic status, I got all the classes I need in order to graduate. The only thing left to do is to check up on graduation applications. I will have to check up and do that very soon.
There's the big question to address:
Q: What am I going to do after I graduate?
A: I don't know. I will have to wait and see.
As far as the coursework for my classes, they're pretty heavy duty and will require a lot of reading and writing in addition to work, and extracurriculars with that I'm doing right now. But I'm confident that I will be able to handle it all. I'm making sure that I keep my priorities straight which is to be able to first and foremost, take care of my health. I figured that if I can have a good and strong body, I can have the physical and mental stamina to endure my classes and workload.
As far as my health goes, I've been trying to go from 18% body to down to at least 12% body fat before my Tough Mudder competition which will happen in March 29. I'll be in LA at the time. If you want to come out and support, let me know! :] I'll be doing a before and after picture. Check for updates.
My 30 Day Habit for February is to read & watch & educate myself for my Personal Trainer Certification.
There's an interesting TED video that I enjoyed watched and changed my perspective/attitude of stress. Here's the video you'd like to watch it.
The speaker, Kelly McGonigal, a health psychologist, at Stanford has a great book about WillPower Instinct. I've attended her workshop for the opening of WillPower Instinct. She's incredibly nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. I still apply some of her principles in her book into my daily life. I've just realize or became conscious that I've been implementing habits she mentioned in her book.
