This year, I have found myself beginning to have ever more commitments. These additional calendar items have added more pressure to my calendar, yet I do see them as beneficial.
I am a part-time graduate student at Purdue University while also working full-time for the University. This means that while maintaining a full 40+ hour work-week, I also have two classes which will place considerable time constraints on my calendar as the semester progresses.
Despite this, I have started working out drastically more than ever before. Since I have started PowerHour, I have yet to miss a single session. This is also a five-day-a-week commitment.
In addition, Justin and I do still enjoy a life with our doggy, Sparky. I visit with family from afar when possible as well.
A full schedule can be very stressful and tiring, but the rewards can be large as well. In my case, this hard work will pay off. I will end up with a Master degree and a much fitter body. I’ll be able to live an even better life with Justin, Sparky and our future family.
