I'm still alive!

It has been a long time since I've blogged. I'd love to start this post by saying "I'm going to start blogging weekly, here!" But I'm not even going to go there. That's similar to my New Years Resolution of "I'm cutting all sugar out of my diet" (and was noshing on dark chocolate by January 2). Or when I said "I'm going to foam roll and do stretches EVERY morning immediately upon getting out of bed" -- Whereas I've found those 10 minutes much more useful spent with the covers over my head in bed....

But I'm going to try. There's nothing wrong with trying.

So since I've last really blogged, the following in my life has changed:

-Ryan is going to officer school and flight school soon to become a pilot for the Air Force (part time)
-I have obtained my dream job and landed a position in the ER
-This weekend I will go through 18 hours of training to become an ACE certified Fitness Instructor through Les Mills!
-I have given up on gardening. I did get 2 lucious little Roma Tomatoes, and some nice herbs. Otherwise, cacti is my new friend. My schedule is non-compatible with gardening.

So many changes all at once, but it's good. I was tired of saying "I wish I could be this" or "It would be so cool if I could do that" -- I finally stopped waiting for life & timing to be convenient, and just went for it!

So hopefully if I stick to my word and continue to blog, I can tell you about the craziness behind becoming a fitness instructor after this weekend's events. And If I have to hear the song "My Cherona" (techno version) or "Rock that Body" -- I am probably going to lose my mind. (these are 2 of the songs in my release for this class I'm learning to teach)

So if you hear on the news about fitness instructor gone mad. It's not Richard Simmons. It was probably me. ;)

Happy Friday to all!

I wish I could take a class from you! I am really excited for you - and impressed you are doing this on top of your busy work schedule!! But I am sure it will be good to have a full schedule when Ryan is gone!
