I don't know if you've heard, but it's The Year of Jennie

Hello Beautiful People,

Once again I will fall behind on my posts...but it's a good reason :-)

Today I heard from the Group that I interviewed with last week. I got the position :-)  I am beyond excited.

I have worked with clients on my own. I have designed countless programs for people. This is what I love. This is what I breathe. This is what I live for. I had a really good feeling about this Group. The more research I did the more I loved them. My interview was 2 hours and it went by in a blink. I felt like I had known this chick my whole life. I wanted this. I was a little nervous though. I would by far have the least experience. But, I also have a lot to offer.  I have a story to tell. It's a Success Story.  :-)

The Group is for at home personal training. The trainers have a certain territory. But, if they have a specialty then they may be asked to go to another area. Well it turns out that the Running Specialist left. So hopefully I can help others with that too.

Back in June I had another interview. I would have taken it, but I was hesitant about it. I liked some things about it, but wasn't really excited about other things. I would have taken it to move and get started. I was sad when I didn't hear, but that was really because for a little while I felt like I wasn't good enough. And then I decided that it was just because it wasn't the right position for me. I didn't want to take it for the wrong reasons. It would have been a lot of work for very little reward. When I got back home I immediately contacted this Group.  It took a while to get things moving, but once we started talking I felt more and more sure that this was the right fit for me. Good things come to those who wait.

And in the meantime, I have gotten a buttload of mileage in. I was happy with my July numbers and my August numbers are even better.  Yesterday I had 12 miles. That would have normally made today a light day. I would have been sore. Today I did an hour of weights, 5 miles, and then 5 miles on the bike. My endurance training is paying off. So even if I just get in a 5 mile day and I'm upset with that, my body is responding. So this summer has been a giant blessing. Every day I feel more and more confident that I will cross that finish line.

I can't wait to get started, but first I have a trip to see nephew in Pittsburgh next week.

I was in Wal-mart when I got the news. Yes, I teared up a little. I always get emotional when I think about how far I have come. I know I always fear the return of the Former Fat Girl, but today I think she gave me a standing ovation.

It's almost Fantasy Football draft time. I am the commissioner and the only girl. Back when we started it I painted a Football gold as the roaming trophy. This year someone mentioned getting a Championship Belt, a la WWE. I said I wanted a Tiara!  So I was told that if I won (and it was stressed IF) then I would get a tiara. To which I responded "I don't know if you've heard, but it's The Year of Jennie!" It sure as heck is!

Have a Blessed Night
