Back with a few revelations

Thursday, June 30, 2011

So I've been pretty busy with work and finals, so all I've done is just check in and record my nutrition and fitness logs, give some likes to my fellow sparkmembers doing great things...there has also been some good things that has happened as well.

I found out that I won't be deployed for a year--actually I will be home much sooner than I thought and for that I am grateful (you will all know when I blog that I'm home, lol). I made a 98 in Public Speaking (yeah I know, I had to record speeches on powerpoints but I speak in front of crowds all the time so I'm good) and 97 in Composition. I'm starting my next two and final classes here on the 3rd. I've been going to church which has really helped me get over some anger that I've been holding in my heart since before I got here. I honestly haven't gotten angry once this week and it feels pretty good.

I got my training material from ACSM--yeah to become a Personal Trainer--I decided why should I wait to get back in the states to read and study the books? I have already been helping people here and giving advice to women who are going into weight training for the first time. Yes, military women are supposed to be at a certain standard, but it is not required for women to lift weights for exercise. There are plenty that just won't do it for the same misconceptions that civilian women have, they just become "Cardio Queens". But now they are discussing changing our Physical Fitness Test where we have to do pull ups for these Queens are begging for help.

I just know that when I have free time all I do is read up on living a healthy lifestyle, inside and out and I want to contribute to the cause. I want to help others pursue a transformation where they not only lose weight and be physically fit, but to build self esteem and confidence that will positively affect every other aspect of their lives too.
I have some plans that are going into affect while I'm here and I'm so excited!
I intend on sharing everything here on SparkPeople while I develop my blog which I will share with everyone once it's finished.

I'm loving the transformation that is occurring in my life, and one day I will be able to help people do the same.

    emoticon I am so happy you have found a way to deal with anger and started moving forward with your life plans. Great scores for the finals and I hope more come your way.
    emoticon on getting the info and starting your reading for the personal trainer certification. I know with your military training and personal motivation you will be able to knock this course out and help & encourage others on how to be their own personal bests. You will be an example of how personal dedication gets you results.

    emoticon news about the deployment getting cut shorter so you can be home and moving on to those new goals. Have you considered on how you would do helping children as a fitness trainer? I think you might help influence a lot of struggling children with their self esteem issues and show girls a way to be a healthy model not stick figures with no muscle tone.

    Hope you get home soon and continue with the church if it is bringing you some inner peace.
