2. For the last 9 weeks I've had the opportunity to take part in Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace online course for free with work. Although I've learned quite a bit, there is still so much more for me to put into practice and change my mentality. I asked my facilitator if I would be able to join a new group that started at work- Dave Ramsey's Core Financial Wellness (website only available if you have a network key, so no link to provide you with) Yesterday was the first meet up and although it still follows everything I'm learning in Financial Peace, its more in depth and actually taught by one of Dave's co-workers. Because I'm 9 weeks into the FP program, yesterday's lesson was a review for me and I looked like the smart kid in the class- one guy called me a ringer haha.
2 great things came from that class:
- I got a free book- The Total Money Makeover
- After the class, I got an email from one of the guys, Chris, who was in there. He works for corporate so no reason for us to really communicate- introduced himself and said the purpose of him reaching out to me is he heard through the grapevine I'm a runner and I've ran in Disney. He had some questions about what to expect with costs / timing/ etc. After a few emails back and forth he asked if I wanted to join their TN Ragnar Relay team for this upcoming November. The company I work for is the main sponsor for TN Ragnar (if you ran it last year, it was the site of the last van swap) so earlier in the Spring they gave a free entry to the first all Healthways team that registered- that team just so happens to be Chris', so if I decide to join, less money to spend!!! A slight part of me holding back since I did that Ragnar last year, and I'd rather do a different location for that time commitment. On the plus side, it would be cheap since I don't have to pay for air fare to get there and the race entry is waivered- ahhhh a good dilemma to be in! :)
3. One of my FAVORITE co-workers, Ronnie, came into work today and said he had something for me....
I couldn't decide which photo I liked the best, so you get all 3.
I have a slight addiction to nutella- I don't keep it around for that reason. Ronnie's mom apparently gave him 4 bottles and he needed to get rid of some so his kiddos wouldn't go into a sugar coma (apparently its alright if I do though) This isn't the small bottle either- this is the big 26.5oz bottle. I'm taking a betting pool on how long this bottle will last... my mouth is salivating right now thinking about it, so I'm wrapping up the post so I can dig in....
