Focus on the Task at Hand


This week has FLOWN by. I’ve moved, started summer school(2 classes condensed into 5 weeks) worked and gotten in countless arguments with my former apartment complex, but we won’t get into that.

Oh, and did I mention I’ve still gotten in all of my cardio and workouts? NO EXCUSES PEOPLE.

Yes, I’m tired and no, I am not a fan of doing as much cardio as I’ve been doing, but my body is coming along and I’m officially 8 WEEKS OUT!!! 😀

If you don’t think you have time for your workouts, MAKE TIME. I promise you can find 30 minutes in the day if you plan accordingly.

Anyways, with all that’s been going on, I’ve been repeating a mantra to myself: Focus on the Task at Hand.

I’m not sure when this started, but it REALLY helps me get through all that I need to do. Sometimes I don’t think I do all that much, but when I step back and look at it, I take on more than I probably should. I like it that way, though. I like to be busy, it keeps me engaged in everything. Between summer school, 2 regular jobs, 2 writing jobs, my website and clients, and prepping for a show, it’s hard not to look ahead and get overwhelmed. In fact, it happens often.

As I’m sweating my ass off doing cardio, I realize I still have to weight train and do another session of cardio. It makes me just want to quit and go take a nap, but instead I focus on the task at hand,  and I don’t worry about what I have to do next, until I have to do it.

I keep a lot of calendars and lists everywhere so that I don’t forget to do things (I also have an obsession with checking things off on lists. Tell me I’m not alone on this….)


Anyways, have a great weekend and I will update more this weekend! I’ve got some homework and clients to tend to. Fun Friday night 😉
