Getting Back to My Fitness Studies

It’s already been a few month’s since I started my blog, and I have been so busy writing and creating that I completely forgot about my studies.  As you probably already know, I am going to school to get a fitness trainer certification.

I first came to a realization that I wanted a fitness certification completely by accident.  I had an epiphany of some sort, I was at work at my old job and all I did was look at the clock counting every second that went by.  I felt like the time had stopped, ( the clock actually did break ) I was so miserable and irritated, and all I wanted to do is go home and workout.  I couldn’t wait to take off my high heels and put on my adidas training shoes.

I finally did get home that night 🙂 and  did my workout.  It made me so freaking happy, even though I was exhausted.  Later on that night I was writing in my diary and I kept thinking ” Isn’t life suppose to be about doing the things you love?  Then why am I not doing it?” The idea of getting certified as a fitness instructor and creating a blog came at the same time.  Writing is another passion of mine.  I’ve been writing poems and proses for many years it’s just something I really love.

The next day I did some research and found a couple of options to get me certified, within a week I began my studying.  It was pretty hard in the beginning and I was completely lost, but as with everything I somehow  push my self further.  Within a few months I got a call from my manager at work, she told me that the company is closing down it’s location and we’re all going to be out of job.  She asked me if I was sad, and I kind of was, but I knew it was my exit strategy out of my old life.

I was really happy,  It was my new beginning.  And I wasn’t about to look back.  I was done doing something I didn’t love. Life is way to short, and it’s  about being happy, and doing what makes you happy. When everyone was saying their goodbyes and tearing up, I couldn’t wait to get out of there.  It was time for me to start my  blog and focus on my studying.

When I stepped my first foot into blogging ( which is still there, the first foot that is ), I knew nothing about what it was going to take.  I just  loved writing, creating and working out.

It turned out to be quite technical which I didn’t  at the time prepared my self for.  Things kept going wrong all over the place, and  all I wanted was peacefully do my writing to connect with people and find great friends.  Since I am a beginner at blogging, there is still plenty of technical things to figure out.  But it doesn’t bother me so much because I am doing what I really love.

I don’t know where my adventure will take me, but I know that I am on the right path.  For now I just have to take it one day at a time and focus on my studying.

Follow your thoughts and dreams, they will guide you to where you need to be.  Life is suppose to be fun!

PS – Was trying to post last night, but my server went down, so that was another thing I wasn’t prepared for, but it’s over now 🙂
