I wanted to post yesterday, I really did. But every time I opened the computer, I got blog-blocked by my guilt. I always have Facebook and Pandora open in the background, but I have been really cracking down on my studying. Every time I use the computer, I guilt-trip myself if I'm not studying. And yes, I'm experiencing a little bit of that guilt at this very moment.
I'm working my behind off to get this course finished. It's my Fitness Nutrion Specialist certification through NASM. It's a continuing ed credit, but it also happens to be a whole extra certification. I am so passionate about the nutritional aspect of fitness, and I've discovered that most people really don't understand what their nutritional needs are. However, I am incredibly frustrated with this particular course. It's not broken down to relate to fitness. It's just plain, simple facts about food- macros, micros, and everything in between. Well, not simple, but it doesn't relate to people trying to improve their fitness levels. It basically takes the MyPyramid, breaks it down into pieces, and says "Yep, that's how everyone everywhere should be doing it". Ugh.
So, I'm trying to get it finished ASAP. Then, I can get started on my next course- Senior Exercise Specialist. That should be interesting. I'd like to have a little niche like that. Not what I want to focus on long-term, but it will be nice to have both of these to set me apart at work. And then, I can focus on other things- like my own workouts and blogging- without the guilt.
