Exciting and Surprising News!!!!


I was trying to hold this in.. but I am just too excited, and I can't. No I am not pregnant, and no we are not moving. Ready................. drum roll please...........
I am getting certified to become a SPIN instructor!!!!!! Yes you heard right. I have been thinking about it for some time now, and talked to Davey about it last week and he was surprisingly excited bout the idea. We prayed about it and feel like it would be a great thing. I go to cycle about 2-4 times a week, and I just love it. I have posted before how I passionate I am about my cycle classes. Jessica my gym teacher has been helping me prepare and find a class to get certified. I was concerned how I am not skinny mini yet, and she said people that have lost weight and are still working towards goals make the best teachers sometimes. We discovered that they are having one at MY gym on 11-7-10!! That hardly ever happens... usually you have to drive down to Santa Monica... which I was totally willing to do since that's my favorite city ever. But wow it's meant to be! Then Tuesday in cycle, another cycle teacher, Jackie came in to check something and Coach said "Hey everyone this is Jackie my supervisor!" So I realized she is the one that hires the teachers. She teaches Monday nights, and from now on I will be there. I have done her class once before, she's good.
When I was walking into Body Sculpt she was coming out of the room, so I introduced myself and asked her all about the class to get certified, and she told me the next steps after that. She said it's really hard to get a class to teach.. I have to take the 8 hour cycle certification class, then audition with her. She said it takes more than good cycling but motivation and encouragement and the ability to be a coach. She said not many people that get certified teach. Well, I am upbeat, not scared to audition.. even though it would be awkward. I was a cheerleader for many years so I know how to motivate people even if they feel uncomfortable doing what you want them to.. I would most likely just start subbing for people until people request for me to have a class (if that happens). =)
There are 3 24 hour Fitness in our area, 1 YMCA, and 1 Ladies First, all which I hope to apply. The pay is not great, but who cares, I would be doing the class anyways. I debated about it because what if Davey's work schedule changes and I can't work around it, and the fact that we want to have more children. But if it's God's will He will work it all out. Excited and motivated for this next huge goal.
