” A goal is a dream with a deadline.” – Napolean Hill
Tomorrow is the deadline for one of the goals that has been on my list for a while. I’m going for my AFAA Primary Group Exercise Certification. This basically just means (should I pass) that I’m deemed worthy to teach group exercise by one of the most well recognized companies in the industry. I have to be honest, I’m nervous. This is not the first time, and won’t be the last. I’m getting better, but this is just my way. This time, I should blame myself. I should have been studying and preparing more. I still have several pages of the study guide incomplete. I’ll be trying to get through it tonight, but I don’t know that I’ll finish. Gabe has a baseball game and I will have to weigh whether it’s more worthwhile to stay up and cram or try to get a good nights sleep. Perhaps there is a compromise somewhere in there. I’ll also be skipping my planned workout for today because I feel a little sore from lifting some weights with Chalene yesterday and one of the components of the practical portion of the exam tomorrow is to show exceptional form. I think I will do that much better if I’m not in agony from beating up my body.
Over the last couple of days I have to say the skeptic in me has been rearing it’s ugly head spewing crappola such as, “Why’d you want to do this in the first place?!” And, “This $hit is ridiculous!” And, “Why the eff do I need to know that?!” And, “Wow, we get paid $12-20 a class but they want us to practically be doctors.” I am doing my best to push the monster back down and going to see my mission through. I know that this is a good thing to do, and continuing to educate myself can only be a benefit and an asset to both myself and my students.
So my friends, send me some positive thoughts, will ya? I do appreciate it. I know if I can stay calm, keep a clear head, absorb the information that is presented during the review portion of the day I will succeed. And if by chance I don’t, well then, it’s only money, lol, and I will just have to sign up to do it again. But let’s please cross our fingers that that is not the case!
But anyway, moving on…. the sun is shining! It is a gorgeous Friday! And good things are happening all around me!
Good things I tell you! I don’t want to spill anyone’s good news before they’ve had a chance to, but let me tell you, a certain coach of mine (Dani Barmen) just got back her results from her 21 day Ultimate Reset, and let me just tell you they were PHENOMENAL! It did amazing things for her and I’m so excited for her to share with the world! It has certainly made a believer out of me, that’s for sure! But I’m I’ll sure I’ll tell you much more about that later, but for now I will say hasta luego, and wish me buena suerte please!
Be well fitties.
