You know what? I was such a spaz earlier that I totally and completely forgot to announce the winner of my $25.00 Hodgson Mill Gift Certificate giveaway. My apologies, friends…I sort of had a million and one things going on in my head this morning.
Don’t worry, I’ll explain.
But first – the winner has now been chosen and announced, so head on over to the main giveaway page to see if it was you!
So today is a pretty darn amazing day. Like, seriously awesome. I have big news.
Earlier this morning, I had to head into Albany for an important event. Afterward, I made a quick pit stop at Starbucks to finally allow myself to settle down. I went big and ordered a Venti Skinny Caramel Macchiato which, oddly enough, had to be iced because my internal body temperature was through the roof.
I made sure to tell the barista to give me extra caramel today because this bad boy was a celebratory drink and all…
So what was that important event and why was I celebrating on this lovely afternoon?
I passed my NASM-Certified Personal Trainer exam!!!!!!!
Whew! It feels so good to finally let that out and share it with you all. I decided not to say anything beforehand because I get really nervous when it comes to testing (I’ve never been a good test-taker) and didn’t want to jinx myself. But I’m sure you probably noticed the increased studying as of late.
I actually scheduled my exam on the same day that I took my CPR/AED certification course, and have been anxiously awaiting this day ever since. I am SO excited to finally have the anxiety of testing be OVER, but more importantly, to finally start putting this certification to use.
As far as what my future plans are, I honestly don’t really have anything at the moment. I’m going to spend some time weighing my options, doing some research, and try to decide what the next best step is for me.
But no matter what that next step is, I am excited and I am READY!
So even though I actually have to go head in to work at my current paying job right now, you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be celebrating with
a little a lot champagne as soon as I get home this evening!
