Bachelor of Physical Education 2013

I finally chose the degree I want to work on this year. I am determined to be healthier and more physically active. My new friend, Alyssa Haws, is a Team Beach Body coach, and she is going to help me achieve this. The encouragement of Kelly Williams, a colleague who lost forty pounds last year, is also a huge inspiration. Her lunchtime Zumba classes and walking program have been the impetus for me starting to exercise again.

So, to complete this Bachelor of Physical Education I am choosing to do the following:

8 goals in a chosen major college:

  • 1. Exercise 10-15 minutes a day four times a week for one month.
  • 2. Attend an aerobics class or exercise class regularly for two months.
