And what's new with you?!

Where have I been you may wonder? Or maybe you don't, but humor me please. I've been really trying to figure out what I really want to do when I grow up and what that might look like. I've been doing a little bit of freelance writing and editing, contemplating keeping this blog going and deciding which areas of my work life about which I feel most passionate. Here is where I will be focusing my direction:

  • Creating a focused blog & website on weight management and related topics. I should have the blog up and running soon and will focus my energy there once I have it functional. Since I've been working at IHM, I've had someone else doing the programming for me, so I'm a bit rusty in that area. I'm sure it's like riding a bike though right? :) Please say right, or I'm afraid I will pull all my hair out trying to figure it all out again! I'll also be working on a more interactive web site for people to use in various stages of weight management, more to come on that later.
  • Continuing this blog as a personal, stream-of-consciousness blog related to anything I might think of. Once my other blog is functional I'll be posting here less. I'll try to post here at least 3 to 4 times a week in the meantime though.
  • I'm working on a book proposal on a topic near to my heart but not related to weight management. I'm realizing this is a teaser post :) I don't want to share too much info since I'm still working on all my plans.
  • I'm deciding if I want to return to school to pursue my PhD in Educational Technology. I specifically want to research the viability and effectiveness of online interventions for the various stages of weight management and I have some ideas as to how I want to pursue that. I'll have to see if more education plays a role in that.

On the personal front, things are fabulous, except that the Chargers are starting the season 0-2. Heidi and I ran the Disneyland Half-Marathon which was a blast. Yes, the run was a blast, but the whole weekend was so much fun! It was my first trip to Disneyland. I'll post pics soon.

Also, I hope to start working on my bathroom remodel starting in earnest this weekend. I'll have before, during and after pics of all the ensuing chaos on here as well.

So, what are you going to be when you grow up?! ;=)

I'm going to be a mommy. :)

Guess I should put this blog back on my radar to check regularly. Your brother is currently school Cojoe on relationship issues. *sigh* Help me.
