Better Spirits

So I didn't like leaving today on such a negative note.

I went to kickboxing. I worked out hard. To the point where you feel about to throw up. Whoops.

I finished 1 of 2 chapters of reading and homework and started on the 2nd chapter. Need to finish that reading, do the homework, and take the quizzes for both chapters. Then do the practice final, the actual final and then I'm done. With one class. Of two.

The other I just need to read and the readings' not too bad. If only I was actually able to concentrate somewhere (work is distracting...home is distracting...maybe I'm just always distracted...)

Someone said this to me today:
"I've noticed that you have made a significant change in your
physical appearance and would like to congratulate your efforts."


Evidently that's how a business analyst comments on weight loss. :)


And a survey that I thought was fun:
