The post you've been waiting for...my 'news'.

Some of you already know what it is.

Some of you have been guessing what it is.

And I'm sure most of you ARE WRONG.

So let's just start with this...

NO!!! I am NOT pregnant.
(I feel like I'm still a baby myself people).

Now that we've got THAT out of the way, we can proceed...

A couple months ago, I got all serious here on the blog.
I had some thoughts on life, education, and feeling very confused with what I should do.
I felt unfulfilled. I had always wanted to go back to school. But I was scared and unsure.

Quite a while before that, on a whim, I had applied to and gotten accepted into a Personal Fitness Trainer Diploma program.
I've been out of school for a good three years now...I was working, making money, married, and kind of set in life. But I wasn't happy.

Was I to just suck it up? Or do I try to pursue this so called happiness?

Well, I'm trying to pursue it!
Do I know this will make me happy?
Well, can someone ever know without trying?

So what did I do?
I paid the deposit to hold my place in the program and then I didn't do anything.
If anyone asked, I just told them that I wasn't even sure if I was going.

But eventually, I just decided (although I was still nervous).
(That's kind of what I do...I'm indecisive until suddenly I feel very decided).
I didn't know what would make me happy, but I knew I wouldn't know this unless I tried!

I paid off all my old student loans, I saved some money to go to school, and I talked to Scott...and he was excited and encouraged me to go through with it.

For a while now, fitness has been a major interest of mine and I enjoy researching within it and helping and motivating others. I'm also quite interested in nutrition, anatomy and other such aspects.
Too bad I didn't think of this a while ago when I was already taking most of these classes ;)

Again, no....I don't KNOW with a certainty that this is what I SHOULD be doing and that this will make me feel fulfilled or satisfied in life. However, I do know that this FEELS like a step in the right direction and although it's kind of scary for me, I'm excited for a change!

Hopefully all goes alright ;)

Any advice? Opinions?
Let me know! And wish me luck!

Guess I don't need to worry about the old 'school envy' this year...now I'll just have to try not to hate all the college kids ;)

Love you too.

PS. Bruce looks pretty cute eating watermelon, eh?


  1. Ok I thought you were posting what car you decided on!!!!

  2. I think it's awesome you are going to school... You'll never know if its the right thing or not unless you try!! Good luck! When do you start?

    1. Thank you :D and I started one class today! Ah!

  3. Good for you! You've always liked fitness and finding new ways to exercise so I think this will be a good fit for you. See if you can job shadow someone doing what you'd like to do in the future! I'm so glad I did my applied study with the physio clinic in GP cause it's just solidified my resolve that this is what I want to do. And I think you'd be surprised to learn that there are way more things you can do as a "personal trainer" than just teaching exercises to people.

    1. I'm hoping so! But thank you :)
      I'm pretty excited!
