For the past month, I have been working on a health and wellness curriculum that the United Way can use in schools and after school programs throughout Madison County. I have researched, written and re written this curriculum focusing on health lifestyles, fitness and food alternatives. With the help of my friend Ellen we have put together every aspect of this program down to creating the pre and post questionnaires based off of ideas that have sprung into my head over since I worked at St. Stephens.
I like to call it my Brain Child.
Today I got to sit down and present my brain child to the CEO of United Way Madison County and I swear I almost threw up. I don’t think I have ever been so nervous in my life. My mind was running at a mile a minutes and my hands would not stop shaking.
Yet I pushed through it and presented her the program with all the same excitement as I have every day when I come in to work on it.
SHE LOVED IT!
Yes it needs some more work and tweaking. (It is only a brain child after all ) But I now officially have the green light from the higher-ups to continue developing this curriculum with the hope that we can get the test group out in the spring of 2014.
After feeling pretty useless at my job the past month… This has been a great day and has the next 9 months here really starting to look up!
