Wow! I don’t know why I haven’t learned my lesson about writing on here but, alas, I have not. I wrote a good post that I scheduled to auto-post today. I got on the computer today to check everything and discovered that the post scheduled for today AND Friday were completely lost. I think it happened when downloaded the newest version of Wordress. UGH!! So, here I am in my sleep deprived state (from a fun New Year’s Eve) trying to tap out a few quick thoughts. * sigh *
The last few months have been filled with tons of studying. I started studying for my NASM Certified Personal Trainer credential in June. I took and passed my test in October. YEAH!! I wrote about that here.
Right before I took the NASM test I signed up for the Precision Nutrition Coaching Certification because they only do two classes a year. I didn’t want to wait till Spring 2014. I signed up knowing I couldn’t start studying for that until the PT test was done.
The Precision Nutrition course is supposed to take about four months to complete. But, I got a wild hair and wanted to finish before the New year rolled around. Yep. Nose to the grindstone for real this time. I spent probably two hours a day reading, watching videos, and typing out notes.
I got so overwhelmed by studying, preparing for a big Christmas trip up North, homeschooling, etc. It was a lot to take on. One Friday I was grocery shopping with my son and a thought popped into my head. “Take the test tonight.” It is an online test so I knew it was an option. But, was I ready? I called my husband and said, “I have an idea so crazy I think it might work.” I took the test that night and passed with flying colors. The weight lifted off my shoulders was incredible.
I am not only a NASM Certified Personal Trainer but also a Precision Nutrition Coach. WOW!! All in six months.
I am very excited about the future of building my training/coaching business. I already have clients trickling in and I will be prayerfully seeking more and maybe, with God’s favor, that trickle will speed up. 🙂
Thank you for being patient with me as I went off grid from here and in many ways from my Facebook page. I needed to cut things out of my schedule if I were going to study and test at the speed I was doing it.
I am back and I am reviving this blog. I will be posting about fitness, nutrition, coaching, and my own personal journey. So, keep coming back for more great content.
