Monday Motivation. Dec. 4th

After this weekend, I needed some extra inspiration to get me through and to put my mind at ease so I can refocus my attention on doing better when I retake my exam and not on the failure. Hopefully all of you will enjoy some of these quotes as well.

EXAM results & Sacrifices.

Thank you fellow bloggers for being patient, I have some news.. 

I took my exam Friday December 1st and got a HIGH score but I did not pass. I failed. 

With all of that being said, I will hopefully be retaking the exam sometime in February ( the ACSM exam is changing so I have to order the new textbooks, etc) While I was so upset and shattered that I missed two days at the gym and ate like crap >.< I have had so much support and love and encouragement from friends and peers. It was a tough exam, a very tough exam to be honest and I don’t know if the new one will be just as tough or easier. In the meantime I will be taking a long break from my YouTube channel, besides this Wednesday and next Wednesday because I have to make some sacrifices so I can focus on restudying and hopefully passing this time around. 

I will continue to blog each week and I will do my best to continue to keep up with the podcast as well (haven’t been doing that as often) and I will continue to be present on my social media (IG, Twitter, Facebook, etc) but I am walking away from YouTube for a little while longer so I can pass and of course there will be other sacrifices. My blogging might not be daily or as many post, because of studying and having two jobs, etc, but I will have a post or two AT THE VERY LEAST each week – unless an emergency occurs. 

I appreciate all of you for being so kind and patient with me and wishing me the best of luck! I know I am capable of passing and doing great things! 

Also, my boss at the gym is still keeping me around as a trainer, so that is a positive .. 😀

Wednesday, Sept. 27th Workout

For starters, I am going to be honest in saying that today’s workout SUCKED. I don’t mean the actual workout in itself, because I made a good one, but my performance & I was angry, I was frustrated and I was throwing a tantrum getting pissed off and crying.. not because the workout was “hard” but because for some reason, I was failing at things I don’t normally do bad at, I was slower in my sprints, the kettlebell renegade rows – I kept falling over to the side .. it was aggravating, and not to mention, the ab roller workout & bottoms up workout I felt like I couldn’t do it correctly even when I knew I was.. it was like nothing was going the way it should have and I had no one to blame but myself. The competitiveness in me doesn’t like failure nor being weak nor being slow.. I aim to win everyday I am in that gym and any day I am competing, the rational person in me says this is normal, I will have bad days and the irrational person in me thinks shit should be perfect because I won’t accept anything less than. So today wasn’t my day …
