BIG News!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  It was a nice quiet Christmas at home this year, well as quiet as it can be with 2 young kids. ;)

I have some really BIG news!!! in addition to the classes I'm starting at eCornell in a few weeks, I've embarked on another learning opportunity as well.  I've decided to get certified as a personal trainer through the National Academy Of Sports Medicine!  At the same time I'll pursue the coursework and the exam to become a Fitness Nutrition Specialist.  I'm definitely going to be busy, but it's what I love, fitness and nutrition!  Really.  On our family vacations it was the norm for me to carry books on nutrition to read just for fun, AND usually more than one book!   It's gonna be a fun ride!

On the weight loss front, my weight has stayed about the same.  I've been working out, but my nutrition has not been stellar.  It's time to cut out the junk and get more serious about healthy living, at least 95% of the time.  I did go to the gym tonight for Cardio and BODYFLOW.  BODYFLOW is a mix of Yoga, Tai Chi, and Pilates, and I found it to be both challenging and relaxing.  Once a week I'm trying to incorporate a balance and flexibility class, and this one definitely hit the mark.  Tomorrow morning is my training session with Dane, very challenging, but not relaxing. ;)

This quote really spoke to me today when I saw it.  Fear was holding me back for a long time, imprisoning me.  Until I made the decision to face my fear, it always controlled me, making me unaware of my true potential. Now I'm free, free to pursue my dreams.  Walt Disney was right!

Tell me:

After conquering fear, what goal or action did you achieve?  

Sometimes fear still takes hold of me and tries to exert it's control.  Each time I face fear and move past it, it's teaching me to have more faith in God and more confidence in my own abilities.  My fear usually involves something I think is too hard or requires too much effort, or talent that I seem to think I don't possess.  But then God shows me it's not too hard, I can put forth the effort, and I am talented enough.  It's amazing how things fall into place once fear is conquered!

I just want to encourage you to face your fear.  Amazing accomplishments will follow.

Thanks for stopping by my cyber corner of the world.  I hope you have an awesome Tuesday.

Take care,
