Challenge Time: Hit the Books

on May 26, 2014

So after some life rearrangements, personal insight and just sheer force of will, I’m reinstituting my weekly challenges!  I’ve been a bit unhappy with my normal routine and life just hasn’t been satisfying me the way it has in the past.  So, time to work on making a change and bringing more happiness into my life.  These challenges will help me move in the right track towards happiness, healthiness and achievements.

This goal may not excite some of you, but it’s a necessary evil for me.  Its study time!

I will soon be taking the ACSM Health & Fitness Specialist Exam and it’s time to really buckle down and learn!  My goal for this week is to get at least 10 hours of study time in.  For students, this is probably a low number.  For me, it’s a bit high.  With work, family time, chores, errands, feeding, and much more, I may find it difficult to carve out 10 hours this week, but it must be done.

By the end of the week, I hope to have a better gauge of how prepared I am to take the test.  And therefore, Challenge part 2 for the week is to schedule the exam.  That makes it real – yikes!

And I promise I won’t bore you guys with complaints about study time this week, but I will share with you interesting tidbits I’ve learned and other fun stuff I hope happens this week!

Time to hit the books!

    I know exactly what you mean about needing to change up routines…. I personally find that every time I’m in a funk it can be helped by taking a hard look at myself and making small changes. That exam sounds like hard stuff! Happy studying!
