Guess what?! I passed my personal trainer certification exam!! I'm so happy, I was so nervous I bombed it, there were a lot of tricky questions! My scores weren't too shabby:
90% 1) Exercise Physiology
85% 2) Anatomy
86% 3) Nutrition, Health screening, testing, Evaluation & cardiovascular fitness
86% 4) Flexibility, special populations, adherence, motivation, musculoskeletal injuries & legal guidelines
There was also a practical exam where we had to train someone and demonstrate two assessments, a proper warm-up, five stretches, two upper body strength and two lower body strength exercises. I'm so glad it's all over and I can get going on this. I have a list of gyms/studios, that were sent with my results, that'll take me for an internship. I'm going to start applying next week. What better time to get into the fitness industry than right around the holidays/new years.
I also plan on getting certified as an ACE lifestyle and weight management consultant and getting my first CECs in advanced weight training and nutritional strategies for performance. So stoked about this.
Anyways, I've been in a total breakfast and snack rut lately, so I thought I'd share with you some of my latest yums. I'm a total late night snacker and I have a mouth full of sweet teeth. This can be a problem! Lately I've fallen head over heels for this stuff...
It's like jacked up oatmeal. Love.
(Yes, that's my laptop in the background. Guilty!)
Since I'm trying to cool it with the huge amounts of frozen yogurt, I tried freezing a tub of this:
This is the most simple. An apple and pecans! Macoun apples are the best and they're in season now. Cinnamon toasted pecans will take this snack up a notch.
Also, if you're looking to get your dip on, mix together cream cheese and agave nectar for a quick, sweet fruit dip. I eat it with strawberries, but I've been itching to eat it with pineapple or melon!
That's all I've got for now, have a fun weekend and train like a girl :)
