I think I'm gonna do it!

I've been contemplating getting my personal training certification for awhile now.  And ISSA is running a promotion right now (which ends tomorrow) so the cost would be $100 less.  I've discussed it with Bradley and my mom and they both support me on it.  I'm just a little hesitant because the money could certainly be used towards the wedding.  But, at my current job, I have a lot of down time (read: bored out of my mind time) and I would love to use that to study for my exam, so I could be just about ready to be certified once we return from our honeymoon and start our new lives together.  I'm not a huge fan of my current job, it has nothing to do with what I went to school for or even have an interest in, and the pay is crap.  PT appeals to me because I have a definite interest in fitness (even if I might not always want to workout), I like the idea of setting my own hours, and I think it'll make me more of an expert when I want to freelance write for fitness magazines (I went to school for writing), plus the flexible hours will hopefully eventually put me in a better position to have more time to write.  I've never been excited about having the same office job, M-F, for the rest of my life.  I'd like to do something that gives me more room to work on many things at once.  I also think PT will pay better than my current job, which is important if Bradley  and I ever want to have a family.  Ick.  I need to make up my mind asap!  Why do I over think things all the time??

Trust me, you're not over thinking things. I'm the same way and sometimes you just have to pray about it and then go with it. It sounds like a great idea the PT and I am going through the same "what am I going to do with my life" thoughts. It will all work out. (I'm talking to you and me!)

Thanks Lisa! Hopefully we both find careers that we love.
