My Mind is Getting a Workout!

Y’know, when I signed up for my Nutrition and Weight Loss Specialist course at Christmas time I honestly thought it would be a breeze.

This particular CanFitPro course is all online – except for the classroom day which, by the way, is next Saturday – and I thought doing an online course would be a piece-of-cake.  I was wrong!

First of all, I hate online courses.  This is my first and likely my last!  I really love having a book – like, an actual paper book that I can flip through pages, highlight notes, write in the margins, and refer to certain page numbers for reference.  This is something I am unable to do right now.  Aggghh!!

Second, depending on what device I’m using – computer, iPod, or tablet – the layout AND page numbers of the online manual are different.  THAT is a complete pain in my ass.  I am a huge note-taker and I really like being able to make a note, write down the page number I found it on, and refer back to it for more info later.  This is also some I am unable to do right now.

Thirdly, depending on the day, the site is sometimes down or I get a page error.  Hello??  WASTING MY TIME!! Not an option!!

I am frantically working my way through this course, trying to get it completed as it is a requisite for next Saturday’s class.  Please be patient with me.  I have not forgotten you.  I have so much to tell and share.

Sadly, it’s Friday night and I will be sitting right here with my computer working away for the next several hours.  Wish me luck.

  1. thanks for the update, I was considering online classes for the future and these are just some of the reasons I’ll stick with a regular classroom, thanks for the info.

    • Hey there! I think it really comes down to one’s preference for learning. I’ve realized that I hate online learning while doing this course. LOL. For the amount of money it cost, I’m thinking they could have sent me a book! Trying to refer to page numbers is near impossible with this particular course as it appears different on each device. PLUS, who wants to be stuck in front of a screen all day? The last course I took I was able to take my manual everywhere and make notes in the margins and highlight – something I sorta thrive on when learning.
      If you find a cheap (or free) online course, maybe give it a whirl to see how you fare with it (or even download an ebook and see how you like reading from the screen).
      Regardless of what you choose, I wish you the best in your endeavors….it’s always great to improve. 🙂

  2. Good to hear from you Sandy! I was afraid you were still stuck in that car pictured in your last blog post… yes, life is a learning process… Learn something more everyday or it is a wasted day…
