Glo Bar Winner, Hope and vision!

And the winner is.... 

Congrats to Junghwa, she is the winner of the Glo bars! Her comment, #17 was:

And her vision for her life was building a family! 
Congrats Junghwa, I hope that the giveaway items help to encourage you as you strive toward your vision and remind you that we can go after our dreams and the life we want! 

On a side note when I was telling my mom about this giveaway, I was explaining to her that despite the fact I am just a few tiny steps onto my new path and into my journey, I wanted to encourage others to do the same. I feel like I have succeeded already by just stepping out in faith and moving forward, even if a little bit. 

Maybe by writing their vision in the comments, someone realized what their vision truly WAS for the first time, maybe someone took a small step of action after it, maybe the hope of winning the amazing Glo Bars, gave a reader hope for their vision and life! 

For me, this was more than just a giveaway. Personally it was a way to pass on what I felt like I had gained: the courage to step out in faith and hope after my vision! For you guys, my readers, I wanted to pass on that same hope for your visions to be realized. Find your vision, pick a dream, write it down, prepare for success and take steps to make it happen!! Your best days are ahead of you!! 

Lamentations 3:22-23

The faithful love of the Lord never ends!  His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness;  his mercies begin afresh each morning!

March Madness

First of all Happy Birthday Dad!! I love you and I hope you have a GREAT day!!

* Dad told me this was 1958 in Trinidad when he was in the Navy!! 

Not only is March a big birthday month for us, March is going to be a BUSY month for Fit this girl and in my life!!

  • A trip to Chicago to see my fave band In the Cinema
  • My last day at my current job!
  • A St. Patties Day race! 
  • Tons of giveaways here at Fit this girl!
  • The MN Real Food conference
  • A BIG test for part of my Leap of Faith 
  • An internship for part of my new career path...
  • Some volunteering!
  • The Restore Holistic Expo I went to this weekend... 
  • New irons in the fire and wheels turning in my head there is SO much ahead!

 Not to mention spring is right around the corner, it's been above 30 degrees all week and everything is melting! I feel like I am hunkered down at a starting line just waiting for the beginning of so many wonderful things!

Spring always feels like a time to start over and get moving on goals that have fallen to the way side or taken back seat. I have more ambition and more energy when the sun is out, the snow is melting away and everything seems to come to life.

One of the things I have been thinking of is having a schedule I stick to. I don't really have a set schedule for much of anything in home or personal life (save for when I am training for a race, which I get to focus on more again!)

A wake-up time 
a bedtime
 specific classes that I hit at the gym
nightly (or morning) runs
 time for myself
 time to keep my apartment straightened
Quiet time for me and the Man Upstairs
 reading for FUN 
(this completely falls to the way-side--SO sad!) 
& blog time!

Sound familiar? Haven't I ranted about making time for these things before?
Well this life is not about the destination, it's about the journey and if I find myself having to refocus and reset, no worries!

In the meantime,  I think a better schedule is in order so I can be on top of all these important things!

Right now this is what most of my "calendar" items look like, a giant list by date:


When I have this GREAT Franklin Planner that is current, and I can use daily for scheduling what I have going on! It is about 4 dollars a year to replace the calendar and is in a really nice, zipper planner case.

I tackled my to do list issue and blogged about it when I bought D.E.B. or my dry erase board, but the schedule thing is something I am going to have to get a handle on especially for my next chapter in life, I will need to be large and in charge of my every hour.

 I am going to come up with a plan for some structure and try and make it stick!  I think using the planner for events,  meetings, races etc and the D.E.B.  for to do lists is the way to go. I am also going to utilize ICal as a way to set reminders for the urgent appointments. I think gold stars may be in order as well....I will have to figure that portion out!

Do you guys use a certain calendar or planner system? 
Do you plan things like your races and workout days far in advance?
