Get Real

So I have dropped the ball lately, I have been taking time off from the gym to study for the NASM personal training exam. I am soo close to getting certified. So at least I'm not completely loosing it from all angles. But I do need to suck it up and get my butt into the gym and start preparing for the spring season. The first week of January is the mark of the 16 week count down to Fitness Atlantic! I want to really build my strength up and get my flexibility back. So my goal for myself is well one get PT certificate, get an extension on my license and most importantly stay on top of my fitness game. I keep telling myself that once this happens everything will be easier, or once this happens everything will be better etc etc. I need to shake this mentality that the grass is greener is on the other side. But I do know that I need to get real and just start doing, instead of just saying I'm going to do things. I have big plans in mind and I am determined to do all of them!! I want to turn my dreams into realities!

Coming to terms

So I've been doing a lot of thinking and contemplating about my life and what I want and what I don't want. Basically trying to reevaluate my current situation, which isn't a bad one, it's just a stagnate one. I'm struggling with financials right now, and I don't want the rest of my life to be like that. I want to be secure and have the feeling of not depending on every paycheck. I've been very good about studying for my personal training certificate, I should be able to take the exam within the next few weeks!! But what I'm thinking is the best road for me to take right now...if I can extend my driving hours, is move back home, pay off my credit card, and just save money!!! I want to save a nice little nest so I can be able to really live on my own without having to worry about paying my bills on time. I also want to do a series of competitions next spring and I won't be able to do that paying rent and everything. I want a successful career, not just a moment. So by moving back home I can focus all my energy into fitness and work. Let's just hope that fait is on my side by allowing my driving hours to be extended.
