Ya girl is hired to be BODYPUMP instructor @goldsgym 🙌💪🙌
I have another Body Pump audition/interview next week! This opportunity would be really special because it would combine group fitness AND college students at another institution! Really hoping it works out!! 🤞🏻🤞🏻
Body Pump group fitness instructor auditions take two! I’ve come along way since that early November audition that I was totally not ready for!
Yesterday while decluttering my workout pants drawer I came across these bad boys from Express circa 2002-2003. I remember wearing these size Large swooshy-esque pants to the gym in college thinking I was hot shit.
I’ve kept these pants and a few others for 15+ years as a reminder of where I was and at some points where I was hoping to get back to.
However I’m ready to release them to the donation pile. Being firmly in low 170s is new territory and I have new goal pants in mind.
I already keep my stuff pretty tidy, but I went through all my clothes today to make sure the pieces I have still spark joy. Used new ways to reorganize some other things and refolded everything!
I’m using today’s snow day to crunch some more 2018 numbers. This doesn’t even include my adjunct teaching gig – which totaled an additional $3,600 in 2018.
After working with my life coach @cscdanmason I really took to heart shifting from an employee mindset to an entrepreneurial mindset. I started with active money generation in Sept & Oct and then in November expanded to passive ways too.
Excited to see what my 2019 additional income looks like especially once I start getting paid as a fitness instructor!
I’m a CERTIFIED Group Fitness Instructor!!
Registering for the in person computerized test itself was a whole ordeal, done through a 3rd party testing firm.
Last week I finally registered for it and studied more over the weekend in addition to all the prep I’ve done over the past few months. I needed to bring a bunch of documents with me including my CPR/AED certification card.
I get to the place yesterday to take it and my name isn’t on the list. I hand over my email confirmation, turns out I mistakenly registered to take it 1/9 not 1/7!! Well knowing how much prep I did over the weekend I couldn’t wait any longer so I was able to reschedule it to take this morning.
I haven’t taken a 120 multiple choice test in well over a decade, it was a lot of brain power! I knew to be prepared for a tough test, but some questions were more difficult than I was expecting.
The 4 domains the test covered were:
🔸Fundamentals of Exercise Science
🔸Class Design and Planning
🔸Class Instruction & Presentation
Happy New Year everyone, thanks for following! I’d love to help you get started/restarted or help you stay on track! I’m not a doctor and consulting one is important, but I’m eager to share some of what I’ve learned over the last 8 years.
The best way to measure life is to take stock of where you are RIGHT NOW. If losing weight and/or gaining muscle are part of your 2019 goals you need to track where you are. I recommend first thing tomorrow morning. Which works out since in the weight loss community #weighinwednesday is a thing.
When it comes to these first steps I would suggest:
▪️Limit weigh ins to 1x week or less
▪️Every month measure chest, waist, hips, upper thighs/arms, mid thighs/arms to start
▪️Take a picture either semi dressed or in something form fitting that you can wear again in future pictures
I’ve enjoyed spending the last few days scheduling and goal setting in my @passionplanner – let’s do this 2019!
These erasable gel pens are heaven. I cannot recommend them enough!
Dec 31, 2017 ➡️ Dec 31, 2018
I remember trying on last minute NYE dresses at Ross wanting something cheap and stretchy. I knew with some Spanx I’d feel okay going out in this dress and I already made the commitment to myself that 2018 was going to be able my health and well-being. Amazing to see how much inside and out has changed in just 365 days!
