Very Bad Blogger

Hello everyone! I have been a very bad blogger. I know it sounds weird but I have been absorbed in my school work and just loving it. Trying to find a balance, giving up somethings and trying to get enough rest has been a major chore in my life. Massage school is WAY more than I had thought it would be. Many more books so much more to learn. But I am so loving all of it. Anatomy is amazing every inch of our body is amazing. The law in Arizona for a massage therapy license is 500 hours. The school that I am attending Arizona School of Massage Therapy requires 815.5. They hold us to a hire standard and expect that professional level. It has been a growing experience for me.
I have always loved learning and this is just fun, hard studying!
The family seems to be adapting to me not being home as much. E'lyse has stepped up and has been a major helper in taking care of some of the things that I use to be here for. Great job E'lyse thank you so much!
I have long days leaving at 7 and getting home between 6:30 and 7 most nights. I know it will be worth it in the end. I have made new friends at school We have a wonderful class with talented people of all walks of life. I can't get over how much we laugh and enjoy the learning process, even the instructors laugh with us and make it a great experience.
We had our first final this past week for CPR I will get my results on Monday. This week I have a final in acupressure and massage basic. Lot's of studying and practice.
So this is my life in a nutshell. I am turning into a nerd and I can't help it.
Good news I have lost 6 pounds since starting school without trying. Keeping busy and not having food readily available helps. he he Still trying to fit in cardio on a regular basis but I will get there it is all a matter of finding balance here and being organized.
I will try to get around and visit your blogs. I miss visiting them on a regular basis. I do pray that everyone is well. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

The First Week of January

The first week of January has been a very busy one. I started back to school after some 26 years. I am loving it. The learning, talking with people and stretching my brain. BONUS lost 4 pounds! Woo Hoo! I haven't even been trying that is the great thing. I have been doing a little workout in the mornings. This week my goal is to do the weight workout and a cardio workout. It is hard to get adjusted to the hour drive one way and home at night. My day is from 9 to 5:30 so I have to leave my house about 7:15 to make sure I get there on time. I end up reading my scriptures in the parking lot and then go into the school at 8:30. It works out great.
This week I should be burning a few more calories we are starting hands on with the massages. Very excited about this. Hope everyone has a great week. I know I will. Remember keep following that dream and make it reality! Hugs, Bobbi Jo
