The Magic Bullet

I believe I have come to the realization that the magic bullet is motivation. When people are truly motivated, there is very little one cannot accomplish. Without motivation, tasks take great effort and often fail. New Year’s is just around the corner and my exercise classes will be full with newly motivated individuals to get in shape. Our health food stores will be filled with newly motivated people who want to get healthy. But most of them will gone by February and most certainly by March, casualties of the cursed “New Year’s resolutions”. No real motivation behind their goals, a loose commitment at best, doomed to fail. I know it all too well. Not necessarily New Year’s resolutions, I don’t usually bother with such. But I am very well versed in lacking the motivation it takes to make true change.

So how does one obtain this magic bullet? Where does true motivation came from? And if we find it, how can we sustain it?

Today, I do not have the answer; BUT for the rest of this month I will be finding answers. Stay tuned…

In other news, I see I haven’t posted in three months. Yikes! The most exciting news is I am getting trained for Body Pump. This Saturday in Memphis is my training. I filed my Intent to Graduate form so barring a disaster, I will complete my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Food Science in August. I have about two months to figure out what dietetic internships I am applying to. I have about a  50:50 shot of getting matched. I have been teaching PiYo in place of a regular Yoga class for three weeks at Parks & Rec (same place I teach Zumba & Aqua Zumba). I am really enjoying it; surprisingly, considering I didn’t love my training. Speaking of trainings I didn’t love, I went to All-Star Presenter Camp in October. I really didn’t know what I had signed up for but I had NO IDEA it was a two day training on verbal cueing. Whoops! I met some nice people but it was basically two hundred dollars down the drain.

My workout regimen has been kind of nonexistent outside of my seven group ex classes. I finished PUMP and attempted a Rev Abs/Insanity hybrid. That lasted all of two days. I don’t really care for RevAbs and School + learning PiYo really detailed me the last month, too. Les Mills Combat should ship in a couple of weeks. I look forward to getting started on something new. Right now I am working on Body Pump 84 for my training and my CPT cert that I need to knock out before next semester. I’m signed up for AEA certification in March and I need at least 6-8 weeks to study for that. It never ends.
