Pondering Thoughts...

This textbook has been my main source of entertainment for the past few months (and years on and off to know the truth) I purchased the study bundle from American council on Exercise years ago, and have studied on and off and always let something get in the way of actually taking the exam and getting certified.

On Thursday morning, I finally took my ACE personal trainer certification. I passed which is wonderful news!! It was the hardest exam I have taken ever. I am relieved it is over and glad that I had studied so hard to prepare. Still always so much to learn.

My thoughts are so much more. Back in 2004 when I began my life changing event of losing weight and getting healthy who would have thought today I would become a certified personal trainer! Getting the 'fat girl' image out of my head and mind has been ore than a challenge for me. Realizing that I am NOT that girl anymore has been beyond difficult for me, allowing myself to enjoy the results of hard work is not easy. It's also not perfect. Keeping off he weight has proven to be much more difficult than I ever imagined. I and my weight loss are still an on going process; however the realization is that I can still motivate and teach people to be on this life changing journey without being perfect! What a great realization!!

I am busy working on some projects and relaxing until Monday when I start my next nutrition course. I will finish that degree and begin making my dreams and desires a reality. Life is too short to let fears get in the way of dreams. This year I have already stepped beyond what is comfortable and safe and will continue to do so. This is my year!

What are you going to achieve this year?

You go can do anything you want to. The hard part is wanting to enough to start.
You are on your way! I for one am so proud of you.
