Life changes when you aren't looking

Friday, September 28, 2012

My renewed love for fitness and health may pay off... my friend called me with an opportunity and I spent the rest of the day researching personal trainer certifications!
Me? A personal trainer?... maybe!

I am always looking for ways to improve my resume and expand my horizons, so why not? This will encourage me to STAY in peak physical shape year-round, it may not be a career goal but it is a nice side job. Heck, maybe it'll help me think twice before ordering pizza or skipping a workout! emoticon

A few weeks ago, I had no idea my life would be the way it is today. Just six weeks ago my life was happy.. I had a great boyfriend, I was close to family and friends, I was relatively happy. Then my life collapsed before my feet... I never thought I would reach a spot where my world seemed positive again after I lost everything.

Being away from everyone is rough and I still spend hours randomly crying because I feel so incredibly alone; nonetheless, I am not alone -- I'm starting to realize that now.
My dog walking/running business is keeping me active and the additional income is needed. I have no reason to be upset...no reason to be depressed. YET, I cannot help it. So far the only outlet has been exercise.

If it helps me stay fit and mentally clear, then I will keep it up! Heres to a bright future!

    That's great to hear!!! The best part will be the feeling you get when you help others and spread the good feelings. emoticon Are you going to be certifying online or at a school?

    I think you being a physical trainer is a wonderful idea! You are 130 pounds - stick thin compared to the rest of us!! And I think it will help with the depression as well. Nothing better than staying in shape, sharing what you've learned with others, AND making money too! HA! You pretty much HAVE to do it, don't you?

    And then you can put up pictures of YOUR legs, abs, butt, stomach on your background! It doesn't have to be anyone else!

    So sorry about everything crashing to your feet. That was me in 2008. I walked around the house in a drunken stupor because I lost my boyfriend and my job within 2 months of each other. So it was a bottle of Crown in one hand and a gun in the other. It still scares the pee out of me to this day to think about where I was and how it could have turned out. But I slept through 2 years of my life, and then I started to slowly wake up and realize I hated myself that way. It took another year of partying and being a slug to find out that I didn't have to exist this way. But the pain was unbearable, and still is most days. Matter of fact, I am laying on my back in bed today because I jacked my back up... and my neck is a whole other matter altogether.

    But I think this will be an exciting opportunity for you and I say go for it!
