Goals update

The Virgin Life Care website assures me that I have far greater chance of reaching my goals if I track my progress, so bear with me!

Goal 1: Get in shape
Progress: I've lost about 3kgs. Feeling a bit happier in my own skin, but still a way to go! To be honest, for the most part I'm enjoying it. The exercise has been so good for me. The eating side has been made easier by a visit from the Sister-In-Law who is a great healthy food cook.
Next steps: Don't lose motivation when my training buddy goes away for a whole month!

Goal 2: New Venture
Progress: Sent emails to people whose wisdom I want on this, my parents and a couple in the church. Wanted to hear their perspectives in terms of where I'm at and who I am rather than the merits only of the business itself. Is it wise for me? Got some good input. My dad's main advice is about minimising risk, in other words, start the business and have it viable before before resigning here. Makes sense, but will be tough doing both.
Next steps: Set up a meeting of what The Band has dubbed The Brains Trust. Pick the brains of a few close friends with experience of starting their own ventures, setting up CCs, etc etc.

Will keep you posted x

I think you are doing an incredible thing setting personal goals for yourself. I am not sure I would be able to pick myself up like that but I am sure the distraction is more helpful than anything else. I appreciate all your kind words. You are a very strong woman and I can only imagine how hard it is to hear about other pregnancies. I know anything can happen and I do not take that for granted. I really am enjoying every minute and now that he is super active it is even more joyful. Don't forget that you are a mother, no matter the circumstances and that you will give Sophia a sibling someday. God is good, even in the worst of times. Continue to stay strong and I wish I had a personal healthy chef! That sounds excellent! :) Take care Caz~ S

Virgin Life Care Website? Sounds like something I should be looking at - am also doing the gym thing regularly; want to keep momentum too.
Going to my first boxing class in 8 yrs tomorrow....I was a kickbox junkie in my youth!!! I doubt I will be able to lift the kettle on Wednesday!! ;)

Look forward to hearing more about your venture when you are ready to spill them beans!
