Why I Might Not Finish This Project

     In March, I became a certified personal trainer. That never panned out because of the pandemic. I did start working on a one month workout plan, but never finished. I created quite a few workouts (over a dozen) when it was my goal to create a one month workout guide. 

    However, I became unmotivated after a couple of months and never finished my project. Part of this was lack of motivation and part of this was boredom. I'm not good at following a workout plan for more than a few weeks most of the time. That's why I plan each week at a time. I also like to try new workouts and find that what works for me one week might not work for me the next week because of my schedule. My work schedule changes almost every week because of my childcare job.

     In addition, I have to admit that although I attended webinars in March about becoming an online personal trainer, being on camera is not my thing. I would rather work with clients in person and not be in charge of selling anything to people online. I'm not comfortable with working with people at a gym in person right now though because of the pandemic. I also can't afford to join a gym right now because I'm only working part time. So for now, I will motivate/ cheer on other people on Instagram. 

Side note: This might sound like excuses why I didn't finish a project I started. It sort of is, but I wanted to share it to be real with everyone. Sometimes life happens and we don't accomplish our goals. Sometimes we have to focus on other goals and sometimes we just need to pause on our goals until the opportunity is right to pursue them.

How I'm Furthering My Education Since Becoming a Personal Trainer

     Since becoming a certified personal trainer in March, I have had extra time on my hands. Three weeks to be exact. This has given me time to take multiple classes. I’m actually almost done with my recertification classes that aren’t due for two more years.                 This is what I have been working on lately: 1. I took a couple of classes about becoming an online personal trainer.                 The day after I became certified, I watched a webinar by NPE called How To Lead Your Business through COVID-19. This workshop talked about how to move your fitness business online as gyms were starting to get closed throughout the country. I also took a 3 day masterclass called How to Transition to Online Fitness Coaching by Amanda O’Mara on Facebook. It gave me a lot of ideas and tools I could use to start a new business. Right now I’m just not sure if I want to start a business. I’m still trying to decide. 2. I have finished almost 4 recertification classes .       

My Inventory of Workout Guides and Meal Plans

Here is a little bit of information about the inventory of workout guides and meal plans I have: 1. Blogilates The first guide I bought from Blogilates was the New Body Make Over meal plan. I loosely followed this in college when I needed to lose weight. Other guides I bought by Cassey Ho included her book Hot Body Year Round and PIIT 1.0. PIIT 1.0 sounded like a fun guide to try because I followed her on Youtube, but I never tried it because it involves jumping and I couldn't figure out how to make it apartment friendly. 2. Love Sweat Fitness I have two workout guides (Hot Body Sweat Guide 1.0 and 2.0), a meal plan (The Hot Body Meal Plan), and a couple of recipe guides including the Guiltless Nutrition Lifestyle and Recipe Book and the first Guiltless Nutrition Guide (not pictured) Katie Dunlop came out with. I have done the Hot Body Sweat Guide 1.0 a fe

Why I Haven't Posted Recently

     I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but I haven't posted on either one of my blogs for over a month. Looking back at both pages, I haven't posted on ABCTE Teacher since the beginning of May and I haven't posted on Fitness and Books since late April.       To be honest with you, there isn't much to update. I went back to work, but it hasn't gone as expected. I am working very few hours because of the Coronavirus. My unemployment has also been pending since I went back to work at the end of May. I'm still trying to get that fixed right now and looking into finding a second job if I need to.      Not much has changed on the health/fitness side of things either. I have been creating my own workouts and trying them out since I became certified in March. But right now I'm taking a break to try/learn from a workout guide I bought a few years ago and never tried. It is by Jess Massey who used to be a personal trainer a few years ago, but now owns ano
