USC acceptance letter and goals

So, I forgot to update you folks, but pretty much everyone on Facebook and Twitter knows... but just in case you missed it...

I got my USC acceptance letter! I'm so excited, I cannot wait to start this new stage in life and my educational career. I am ready to be challenged academically again, and actually be more interested in what I'm studying.

In the meantime, I've got a MOUNTAIN of paperwork, tests, dates, schedules, and information to go over and organize. I've got this Microsoft program called OneNote, and it's amazing, it helps me organize everything, and even add events attached to my Outlook which syncs up with my phone... which.. is just amazing for my schedule obsessed mega busy OCD self :D

Something new in my life recently has been working out. I know most people work out, but I have never in my life put a conscious effort into exercise or fitness. I've been trying to go to the gym 3 times a week for about 2hrs each time, and fit in more physical activities day to day. A year ago I could hardly run a block, now I can do about 2.5 at a good fast pace. I know that's nothing, but for me, that's a huge step. Oh, and asthma sucks majorly. Just sayin'

Part of getting in better shape for me is because my life is crazy, and I hate being tired. I've got a short term goal of getting in better shape before a 3 day backpacking trip I'm taking with Travis, our dads, and some friends. I definitely don't want to be the weakest link, seeing as I might be the only girl, and probably in the poorest shape.

Another goal is I'd like to get in better shape for my family's 2 week vacation/reunion trip to California in early June. I just want to be able to run around, look great (well, even better ;) and have plenty of energy. I'm so excited to see all of our cousins, and just have a great summer vacation.

A slightly further off goal is the Mud Run. There's a team of folks doing it from my church, some friends of mine are also, and the smack talk has already begun. I can't let the old foogies outrun me, now can I? I'm so excited to finally do it. Travis and I are starting a training schedule, and we're going to team up with our friends Kyle and Lance, who are both doing the same P90X workout regime. I've seen the CDs and books that come with it, and it's intense!

That's all for now, just sort of a random post about what's going on, and some things that are coming up. Sort of a vanity post, if you ask me... but oh well.
