Off On A New Adventure

Building The NewI am so excited as today is the start of a new adventure for me.  As I have said, I had no idea at the time I started my weight loss journey that it was going to become so very important to me.   I had no idea that my desire to help other people achieve their own weight loss success and reach their health goals was going to become the most important thing in the world to me.

I felt that in order to properly help people it was necessary for me to further my education and earn the proper certifications so that I could feel I was truly qualified to assist others.  I decided that personal trainer and health coach certifications would be most beneficial for the career I want to pursue.

Tonight I started the class for my personal trainer certification and I am so excited!  Five years ago, I could have never imagined that I would ever earn a personal trainer certification or that I would ever even have the desire to do so, and look at me now.  The class was very interesting and I am beyond excited to be learning about this so that I can help others.  I desperately want other people to see the benefits I have seen from exercise but I want to make sure I know how to properly instruct them.  PLUS, I feel like it’s extremely beneficial for me to expand my own personal knowledge as I feel like I have only scratched the surface of what I could be doing to benefit my body with exercise.

My class is every Tuesday evening through May and I will keep you posted on how it’s going and what I am learning.  I can’t wait to be able to start working with people.  Weight loss has SO many wonderful benefits for your health and I want other people to experience the wonderful things I am experiencing.What We Do for Ourselves

I was contacted a few weeks ago by Carlos Cabezas, a local personal trainer who has created a podcast where he interviews people who have been successful with weight loss in hopes that their stories can help inspire other people to achieve weight loss success.  I was honored that he was interested in interviewing me and yesterday I sat down to talk with him.  I am always hopeful that my story might help to inspire just one person.  The podcast and website are called Trim Endeavors and I encourage all of you to check them out as there are several inspirational stories there and I’m sure you could find one that speaks to you.  Here are the links: or directly on the site, and thank you again Carlos for having me on.

I think that helping other people with their journey sometimes makes our own a little easier to navigate.  Think about who you might be able to help or encourage along the way.  It doesn’t matter if you are at the end of your weight loss journey or not.  You can be just as helpful to someone if you are still trying to reach your goal as you are more relatable.  Look for someone to help encourage this week.

Encourage Someone
