Good things

It’s been a busy month or so, and I haven’t made much time for blogging. I’ve been going through some changes at work, and saying goodbye to friends. It’s been mentally tiring, emotionally whack, and that has resulted in me being physically lazy – not getting up for taekwondo class as often as I should and sleeping too late.

But, things have been getting a little bit more normalized, volunteering at the soup kitchen continually reminds me how lucky I am to be employed and to stop feeling sorry for myself, and a few good things have happened.

I did manage to learn my taekwondo form, Choong Jung 1, and go to enough classes to earn my next belt, brown-recommended.

Another good thing is I have been using the MyFitnessPal app and website to track my calories and exercise for about 3 weeks now. After about 2 weeks I had lost 3 pounds, and I’m paying more attention to what I’m eating and how much.

The third cool thing is I got to attend a lecture by Dr. Jane Goodall, which was awesome. She talked about her early life and the beginning of her studies of chimpanzees, and about conservation work. And, after standing in a realllllyyyyyy long line, I got to meet her for about 25 seconds and she signed one of my books! Check it out:

Also I recently listened in on a free call with SARK. She was promoting her Write It Now workshops, and while I did not sign up for the paid program, I did enjoy the free call. It was inspirational and got me to thinking about and doing a little more personal writing.

Another fun thing I’ve been doing is decorating  for fall. I’m going to post about that on Monday, in conjunction with BLOGtober Fest.

  1. How exciting that you met Jane Goodall! I studied the environmental sciences in college but had a difficult time finding a job in that field after I graduated. I do miss it and would have loved to have the opportunity to meet Jane!
