Today is An Excellent Day

I have posted so much in the past few months? years? honestly and vulnerably about my struggles…

but I finally have some great stuff to share!

Doe Bay

Write Doe Bay was everything I could have hoped it would be, and then so, so much more. It made me a better writer, and a better person. It helped me shift my own personal narrative and gave me so much more hope than I could have imagined. Hope I desperately needed. I will absolutely be sharing more on this after I’ve had more time to reflect on it.

And then THIS finally happened! I got my NASM personal training certification!

This is something that I have been talking about for years, but honestly, I was so afraid of failing that I kept not studying and pushing the exam off…and finally signed up for it this fall so I could stop talking about it and just do the damn thing. I’ll do another post on my crazy, cobbled together study plan/what you really need to know. My best friend is a physical therapy professor and tutored me, and her help made a huge difference and lit the fire under my ass I needed. I’ll be putting together some online programs (like my run coaching), so let me know if you’re interested!

That’s all for now! Just had to share being so excited since it’s been a while.

What are you excited about lately?

    Congrats on passing your certification! That’s definitely something worth getting excited about. When I passed my CSEP certification I felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders – that all that hard work and studying had finally paid off.

    Go You!! Such great news! I’m the strange woman who talked to you in the Brooklyn supermarket. I’m also a PT and I remember how great passing the exam felt. You’ll be a great PT and I’m looking forward to following this next chapter. Congrats!

      Sorry, by “strange woman,” you mean amazing woman? <3 It's so good to know that my work is resonating with actual humans. And I'm so glad you came up to me! That hug was exactly what I need then, I was having a tough day and you totally made my night!

    As always, a late comment – but I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to read this. Just know that people you don’t know are out here rooting for you – hard.
