Well, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” is the original saying. But I decided to do something a little different. I got up this morning and went to the studio; my producer friend said it looked like I was “wasting away.” Which I guess is a compliment from the same guy who tried to feed me cupcakes. We finally finished Week 8 and 9 of the Couch to 5K podcasts! I was so excited we’ve literally worked on this podcast for six months. I’m so picky; I wanted every curse word edited, every song to fit right and flow with the groove with as many positive upbeat lyrics as possible. It was a huge task, but we did it. I’m so glad that I’ve already helped so many people. To date my podcasts have been downloaded over 2,000 times!
After I left the studio I went to Bread Co. for lunch and read a little more of the Purpose Driven Life which focused how we are here for God’s pleasure and not our own. Then I went to the local library to do some research. I literally haven’t been to the library in years. It’s so fancy now, self-check out and a real DVD collection. I might as well tell you why I was there… Since the fish in the employment pond aren’t biting, I think I have to build my own pond. I’m going to try and grow carlifierce.com. I have huge dreams of creating a 5K to 10K podcast, and even making a fitness DVD. There’s more, but I’ll save that for later! I also signed up for the CPR/AED class with the Red Cross, which is a requirement to be a group fitness instructor. I ordered the study materials and hope to take the test in the next couple of months. I figure I should have more than real life experience when teaching others to get fit, so I’m getting the education/certification to back me up. So there’s my recession plan…Wish me luck! After the library, I went to personal training with Lyle. We did a lot of ab work and I still feel it right now! I told him how much I’ve grown spiritually because of his program. I didn’t get a chance to go running today, because I had to come home and draft the flyers and press releases for the job fair in a couple of weeks. Since I spent a whole week in a lull, I’m not sure that I’ll be able to reach my original running goals, but I’m still going to go to the race, and give it all I got!
