I didn’t know it at the time, but a year and a half ago I began one journey; my weight loss. Today, I realize I have officially began another journey. I am doing the certification for Pregnancy Fitness Educator. I am really excited about this. After 10 years of being a wife and mother and not really knowing what I want to do in life…., I finally have something for me. I can also share this with my family and friends and that has me excited!
I realized I wanted to do something in fitness and nutrition after I lost my weight. I originally leaned toward personal trainer, but with schedules, finances, and life at this moment; it wasn’t viable. My lovely friend Tiffany, who is a certified doula, told me about the certification. It was in the general field of what I wanted to do and fit within our limitations at this time. I am still wary about how good I will be at this and I am nervous that I won’t meet the expectations/requirements for the certification. I see, for now, that I am the only one putting those inhibitions on myself. Logically and the realty is if I do the reading, research, and requirements then I would be fully qualified and certified. I need to stop making up hurdles. Plenty of people can do this and have done this, I can to. I think alot of us self sabotage before we even get started.
I am proving to myself once again that what I thought impossible I can do and so can you!
