Be-YOU-tifully YOU Project 2.0 Week #14


Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

This week flew by!  Remember how stressed I was last week?  Well, everything worked out for the best.  Spring quarter has begun and I was able to get my internship approved and registered.  I am so excited about the fact that I will finally be done with my undergrad degree by this summer!

This quarter I will continue application development.  Additionally, I am learning about supply chain management and neural networks.  Finally, I am going to complete an entire full-stack web development course from start to finish.  I have studied coding in several different languages and feel like I have a decent foundation in front end development, but I still have more to learn.  I am excited about sharpening my skills and growing as a programmer!  I also got a job and am running an online business and taking care of all the tech support.  It feels like this was perfect timing!

My workouts went well this week.  I just finished week #9/12.  I felt a little weak because I did a 9-day micro fast that just ended today so thankfully I can hydrate like normal for the rest of the month.  I am planning on doing some intermittent fasting again starting tomorrow.  I enjoy tweaking little things each week in my nutrition and workout plan to see what my body responds to.

  • Wake up a little earlier for an early start.  I started my day earlier on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  Maybe this week I will start early and do a walk or some yoga.
  • Do what you must and do it with ALL your heart.  Overall this was a great week.  I have a strong start on my internship and course work and I feel great about that.
  • Train a little harder.  I always give it my all.  I have been doing my best not to over train and burn out, but there is still that part of me that worries that I am not doing enough.
  • Blog everyday.  I was able to accomplish this goal this week!  Let’s keep it going!
  • Give something up.  I cut down on my sugar intake!
  • Learn a new language and / or expand on what you have learned so far.  Yes!
  • Study marketing.  I am studying logistics and supply chain management.  While, it is not quite marketing, it is giving me great insights into running a business which I plan on doing soon!

This past week was a very productive week for me.  I still experienced moments of feeling down and depressed and I do not know exactly what that is about.  Also, my lower back felt sore from being more sedentary with my studies.  I think I need to live my life even more purposefully than I currently am.

Here are my blog posts from last week!   Stop on by and enjoy!

I am proud of how frequently I blogged this week.  I just realized why I have been feeling so down these past few days.  I found out on Friday that my best friend Kathy passed away in January.  There was a time when I could not imagine life without her.  I felt so lucky to have such a strong woman and friend in my corner and now she is gone…

Her memory and the lessons I learned from her will live on forever in my heart.  It has also been a reminder for me to re-evaluate my life and find out if I am living my life the way I want to.
