Monday Motivation

Three weeks left until the CFA. I repeat: three. weeks. left. The next three weeks are going to be pretty challenging, but I’ve got some pretty cool stuff keeping me motivated this week. 

I’ve finally finished reading all of the CFA level 1 materials. I’m feeling pretty good about the fact that this leaves me about 3 weeks to do some major review and practice exams.


I’ve also found a new appreciation for the recumbent bike in our living room – it makes it so I can study, while still getting out the stir crazies that set in when I don’t get my usual runs in. 


I thoroughly enjoy the saying that’s on the lululemon bag I’ve been using to take my lunch to work. I got it at Seawheeze this year, and love that it provides a little bit of inspiration with my lunch. 

It’s also made me less worried about lunch thieves, since it’s pretty distinctive (I still haven’t gotten over my lunch being lunchnapped). 


Like I mentioned in my last post, the last two weeks it’s been getting darker much, MUCH earlier – meaning that it’s pretty well dark by the time I get home. My smiley face reflective magnets make running in the dark both safer (and just a little bit happier). 

While I’ve got a lot of studying to do, I’m planning on going running at least a few times this week,  to keep the stir crazies at bay and keep me healthy for gearing back up on training.

What’s keeping you motivated this week?
