What's been going on???
My job is coming along fine. I was told today that when I bring back my manual, I'm officially out of training.. yippeeeee.. I think that means a pay raise! fingers crossed! I'm thinking that in about a month I will be able to get my books and start my studying for my personal trainers certification. I'm going through the NASM... National academy of sports medicine. http://www.nasm.org/ The trainer I used to see told me that is the best one to get. I will also be getting the Nutrition certification they offer. In my experience the trainers I've seen haven't been very knowledgeable on the nutrition end of things. Which doesn't make a lot of sense to me considering that 80% of your health and fitness success is your diet. But I understand that that may not be what trainers want to be doing. What ever floats your boat I say!
I just got on the bandwagon for Instagram... I LOVE it!! I love taking pictures and this app makes it even more fun. It has a bunch of really cool filters and you can blur out background in a circle or rectangle. Plus you can follow other Instagram users. I've also started doing the photoaday... which is a lot of fun also. Here's the link on what it is and how it works.. http://www.fatmumslim.com.au/search/label/photo%20challenge. If you have an Iphone or Android.. I recommend you download the Instagram app which is free and participate.. It's fun!! And follow me of course.. Shericep is my name!
For the photoaday pic, today was.. someone that makes you happy...as my husband is out of town and the kids aren't home as I'm typing this post.. these guys are the next on the list :)
These 2 make me very happy... unless Luka the one standing, who's about 10 mos now.. get's into the T.P. which he does often.
