I've been doing some good in the world even if I haven't been online as much. I've started doing 5 am workouts.. and it's been a lot of fun. I've been studying like crazy and passing off these quizzes so I can get my certification!! It's entertaining... but there is SO much information.. HOLY COW!! I also have my CPR/AED certification tonight. Should be good times. I am hoping I will be the only one in the class. THAT WOULD ROCK!! Talk about getting in and getting out! ;o)
The highlight of the week thus far... the one that made me giddy... was when this AWESOME trainer at the local gym told me she would be more than willing to let me shadow her. You have no idea how worried/stressed I've been about getting hands on experience. I'm seriously STOKED!!
Now...... I need to get my focus back to water intake and nutrition. These two things are the KEYS to success! ;o) Hope everyone is having a fantastic week! The countdown has nearly begun!! WOW!! I can't believe February is almost over! AHH!!!

LUCKILY.. my company is gone, my neighbor is all moved in (they had a huge moving truck in front of my driveway today) and I have 2 workout dates tomorrow! One for spin at 5:30 and one with Brandy at 9. After that I'm going to the grocery store for some much needed FOOD!! Mushrooms, spinach, chicken, berries, oats, leeks, sandwich thins, turkey, peppers, oranges, bananas, lemons, wahoo... I'm STARVING for yummy nutritious stuff. You know it's desperate when I'm able to convince myself that sunchips aren't "so bad"! ;o)

I'm super excited about it! I love that it's pink. Kind of an inside joke but basically, since I have four boys and I'm the only one in my house who has the opportunity to "wreak of feminine beauty" I generally buy A LOT of pink! ;o) I am taking a Spinn class twice a week (starts tomorrow!) that is about cardiac health and how to USE the heart rate monitor. I'm sure this is a topic I will get into in my Personal Training certification.. but I'm really excited for the opportunity to learn more about heart health, fat burn zones, cardiac health zones, etc... WHILE exercising!! I'm also excited to announce that I've made it through ALL OF THE CHAPTERS ON ANATOMY and physiology which means... I'm into the chapters on the actual science of exercise!!! I'm so excited to learn how to develop exercise programs for clients and to assess their needs and help them overcome obstacles! YAY!! I'm concentrating strongly on my posture. It's SO IMPORTANT for overall strength and CONFIDENCE. Yesterday we were grocery shopping and I totally felt like PUKING.. but I walked around wal-mart rockin' my pecs.. it was pretty dang funny! I am enjoying reading your blogs. The 2nd month is always harder than the first. The weight doesn't come off the same and it's easy to lose motivation. Just don't lose MOMENTUM!! Keep working towards your goals. :o)

I couldn't help but notice you attempting to "run" on the treadmill yesterday. The idea that you would show up in a camisole and a regular bra was enough to make me giggle. Your workout buddy staring at your bouncing bossoms the entire time was also quite funny (maybe he is your boyfriend?). May I suggest you invest in a VERY SUPPORTIVE sports bra before you attempt to run again. It's no wonder you only lasted about 30 seconds running at a time... OUCH!!

Now I'm home and ready to bust it out. I'm just going through a lot of "stuff" in my head. I am feeling very ALONE... on the plus side.. this gives me more focus during my workouts. On the flip side... anger/hurt all the time is hard to deal with.
