I have had almost 4 years of diapers, crayons, 'goo-goo, ga-ga', wipees, bottles, mush, unknown smells and spit up. Yesterday, I received my books for getting my Nursing Assistant degree. For a moment I didn't know what I was doing.. then, all of a sudden.. I found myself! Yes.. I remember this stuff! I remember how to pronounce big medical words like electroencephalogram. I remember that I used to do some of this stuff!! I remember that my dream was to become a nurse... Wow... I remember who I am!! Somewhere hidden between my life as a mother, and a woman obsessed with her weight loss.. I forgot who I am. I lost that person who was full of determination and had unbelievable goals. Instead, I became a woman obsessed with her children (not a bad thing, by the way) and trying to stay alive. I dreamed of what my children would become when they grew up... and forgot what I want to be when I grow up ( I am still not admitting that I have). Yesterdays package was a God send. My husband had enrolled me a while back in a school out of Washington that allows you to study and test at home. In 6 mos to a year, after passing all the tests and certifications, I will have my Nursing Assistant degree. Not quite a nurse, but at least on the right path to being one. So last night was my first study session.... and what a headache! LOL. I thought I would remember most of it from being an EMT way back when... but apparently if you don't use it.. you DO lose it!
As for my diet.. and yes, I am still obsessed with becoming healthy... as EVERY person should be... I have done well. Today I have a 3 hour Kempo class.. tomorrow is my Weigh In / Measurements/ Picture day... so I have to stick with it today!
I'm off to kick some butt~ Literally!! Have a Blessed Day
