Accountability and Challenge

I am doing my final here at home today.

In class yesterday we were all talking about our different test-taking styles and it was discovered that about half of the class would prefer testing in the classroom and the other half would prefer testing at home.

I am testing at home! Eee gads and awesome. The exam is online and open book, so what difference does it make? I'm so happy.

When I am taking a test I'm good until that first person turns in their test. Then I can't stop thinking how I may be the last one standing (sitting?). The brain starts giving me background noise and I begin losing focus.

Yes, ridiculous. Who cares if you're last? Tell that to my brain.

Wish me luck. I'll be locking myself in a bit later in the day.

I am also beginning a personal fitness challenge, but I would LOVE anyone who would care to join me.

Goals are simple; pick whatever goal it is you desire. Mine is eating mindfully and daily exercise with a weight-loss and fitness goal in mind. I have a gadget on the right for my tracking. Does anyone know of a spiff tracking gadget we can use?

Begin it to win it!

I'll host a cyber-party for all peeps that join the challenge. Ideas are encouraged!

Here are a couple of my favorite links for help.

Hi Deborah, First of all congrats fellow newlywed. Thanks for the kind words. I would love to join you on the get fit goal. I too have been trying to figure out how to get motivate3d to eat better and exercise more regularly. I go through phases where I will be faithful for like 4 days then back to my bad habits. So count me in I just need to do it! Traci

I used to freak when others started handing in their tests, too. I thought, Shouldn't I be done by now? What am I missing?

My fitness goal is to look like a Jersey Shore guy, only not as dago-ish.

Open book AND at home? Sweet!

If I could've done that during my college Algebra finals, I wouldn't have had to write the answers on my forearms.

www.dailyburn.com is a great site to track your intake. my coworkers and i went a couple weeks to see who could have the lowest fat/ calorie/ carb intake.

i'm sure you'll be shocked to know i came in last place.

Deborah said...

Marnie - Me too!

Karen - I took a couple of half classroom/half online courses last year and took both finals at home. I still was a nervous wreck.

Traci - Oh yay! I need someone with me!

Heff - Only the best for you.

LBB - Nice goal! Those abs are scary good.

JJ - Yep to the open book.

Lucky Gun - You are perfect already! And a young us. But I'll check out that site. Thanks!

RJ - You boys!
