Ch ch ch changes!
And now, why the title of this post.
Due to recent, and not so recent rejections on the job front, due to over 200 job applications filled out and nothing more than a summer golf course clubhouse job, due to my drive and ambition to DO SOMETHING, I have decided (after mulling it over for almost 2 years in which I submitted those 200+ applications) to become a personal trainer.
I want to help others find the self-love I've found through exercise and activity. I want to help others get healthy, stay healthy, and pass it along to their families.
Frankly, I read every ounce of exercise-related media I can get my hands on anyway. And I'm slightly obsessed with The Biggest Loser. I watch the old episodes on Netflix daily.
It's kind of a big deal. If I succeed in this, I will be my own boss (at least partially). I will be helping others, and myself, to be Fit for Life.
And, I'll be well prepared to fight off quilter's butt for life!!!
Wish me luck. My cousin made this decision when he was 40, and he's opening his own CrossFit gym next month.
This is a reachable goal. Now, I just need to put on foot in front of the other, flip one page after another, and I'll reach it, just like I'll finish my first marathon this fall.
