A quick update. And it so happens to be Tuesday, as in Tuesday Newsday

Hi.

Remember me?

Of course you do.

I’ve been very busy and stressed. I’ve come to let you know that I still LOVE my blog and this community and all of you! I hate that I have to neglect it currently. In fact, it’s been such a long time that they have changed the look of WordPress.

Here’s what I WANT to post: My FIRST marathon post (it’s 3/4 done), my Tough Mudder Review (YES, last weekend, I did the Colorado Tough Mudder and want to tell you all about it), My Dino Half review, Horsetooth half review and my reply to my Liebster Award.

All those post are coming….eventually.

Here’s what’s going on in Colorado:

-School is almost done!! My last day of classes is July 3rd (15 days!!!) and I will graduate from my personal training school July 12th. However, in leu of that, I’ve had homework assignments, BIG assignments due. It’s been about two or more per week, for the last two weeks, and more due here in the next two weeks as well. I’ve had a few tests and finished up my Performance Enhancement Specialist elective class. (no, there’s nothing to with steroids). Then, of course, a 3 day final exam: Written test and practical tests.

-I’ve been job searching like crazy, partly just to look for a personal training jobs, but also partly due to the fact that my hours got drastically slashed at work and I have been given a sales ultimatum. This has put me in the worst financial crisis I have encountered. It’s scary. But for the record, I absolutely HATE and despise the corporation we all know as Bally Total Fitness. There’s a strong part of me that just wants to rant about that company, but I know that’s not very professional.  All I will say is I highly recommend changing gyms if you do, in fact, supply Bally’s with money once a month. Although, it’s unlikely that any of you need to do this because there is only Ballys in three cities of the United States.

-And that’s about it. I haven’t had too much time for fun. Wait, let me rephrased. It is true, I HAVE NOT had time for fun, but I have made time for a little bit of fun, probably at the cost of my sleep. Possibly. A special friend moved to Colorado recently, so that’s great and have gotten to spend a lot of time with them. In the last few weeks I’ve been to a BBQ Festival, Chalk Art Festival and the People’s Fair.

I miss this world. I will come back to it soon.  As soon as I finished all my homework. In addition, I’ve neglected my friends. So here’s my apology to them: I’m sorry for the delay in text message response, or no response at all. And sorry I decline a majority of hangout invites. I’ll have more free time soon. In the meantime, here’s some recent fun pictures to entertain you:

  1. I’ve worked (and still do) for all the big fitness corporations…there’s pros and cons to all, but you may want to look into a family owned gym and get to know physical therapists, doctors, and chiropractors to get clients. Also, be brave and lead group training/bcamp sessions too. When you do continuing education, really look into rehab, and corrective exercise, there are more opportunities there. Hang in there, and good luck on your new career! It’s so rewarding!

  2. I always love stopping over to visit your wonderful blog. 🙂
    Co-signing with what Joy said above: Hang in there! Its incredibly easy for me to say this being out here in Nebraska. Although you have so much passion,desire to make a change in the world and the willingness to exceed that I totally know things will work out in the end! These tough times are where you really begin to flourish. 🙂
    Take care this weekend and please be well!
