Today, I started the ball rolling. I became a Canadian Fitness Professional member. This summer, I will be taking the Personal Training Specialist Course...and begin down a new path, one that I am already passionate about. Think about it. What better person to train people to lose weight and become healthy than someone who took that journey already, by herself. I have every intention...I WILL be in the 160's by June...and at goal weight by Fall. Then doors will start to open for me. After I take the course this summer, I have 4-6 weeks before the exam to get practical experience. I hope to go to the gym in the neighbouring town and ask for someone to mentor me so that I can learn, and get the experience needed to take the exam. I am so stoked about this! I think in the meantime, I'm going to take a course or two that will be recognized too...just for fun, for knowledge and to keep this goal first and foremost. I had to pay a fee to become a member...you just don't 'join'. So having that first step taken...that feels so good. This is MY year, people. Watch me soar.
I'm the mother of 3 beautiful girls. Somewhere along the line, I lost myself, and now
I am on a journey of rediscovery, of health and happiness which includes losing the weight that is holding me back from really enjoying life. I found The Gabriel Method (www.gabrielmethod.com )back in March and have been working that since. I believe he's got the key. In addition, I am on a self-imposed refined-sugar-free/gluten-free eating lifestyle. Exercise has become something that I love, that I crave, that I truly enjoy, thanks to discovering P90X. P90X is challenging, and killer, and awesome! Going Primal Baby! Blogging about this journey is going to be interesting.
