I cannot believe that we are going to do this. I am already starting to get nervous. it starts at 7 am. when the heck do you eat?? 4 am? It's in Utah, I live in Pa. what about the altitude and how do I combat that? I am doing research for answers to these questions and will not allow myself to have doubts or fears. I need to do this in 4 hours, that is my main goal. We are working towards increasing our distance and improving distance bit by bit. Taking it slow we have time, this is in March. Exactly one month before my 60th birthday. Going to look for a running group on spark that may be able to help.

So, yes, we are doing this. On March 22, 2014. Exactly one month before my 60th birthday I will be walking/running in this. 13.1 miles. My sister, and daughter and some of her friends are doing this with us. What a way to celebrate. Also, will be finishing up my course with ACE to be certified right about that same time. Have got my work cut out for me the next few months. I keep thinking my goals, three big ones..build the business, get certified as CPT and ready to run this half marathon. How to fit it all in, has me thinking and rethinking. I need to schedule time and think I may need to find some more hours in my day. Today was a good day, got some studying in, ran/walked 2 miles today after doing 7.44 yesterday at the Rails to Trails. Cheri and I loved that.

I keep thinking once I am Certified, it would be great to have an extra office in the Franklin Center across from the Curves Club to work with people, one on one. could do free weights, training etc, and could work with all ages, men, etc. This could be awesome, I have had some men say they wish they had somewhere to work out. they are not real happy at lifetime health. Dirty hot and machines are not maintained.

I know that goals normally start out as a dream. we keep thinking about them, dreaming about them and talking about them. Somewhere along the line, we start setting some specifics to it, how could we do it? Could we do it? When could we do it? What steps would we need to take/ That is pretty much where I am at with the zion half marathon. It seems to have taken over my thoughts. I am thinking about it, talking about it, dreaming about it and actually even training a bit for it. Cheri is really wanting to do this with us too. I am thinking it could be possible.

My daughter is doing the Zion Half Marathon in March 2014. I am considering doing it with her and trying to talk to Cheri into going with me. We did a 5k yesterday and it shows us how much training we would have to do to be able to do 13 miles. It would be over 4 times what we did yesterday. I think it would be a blast if we could do it and it would be exactly a month before my 60th birthday, so how awesome is that! I am planning to complete my ACE CPT by then also, it could be two goals knocked out before I am 60. Two big goals. I woke up thinking about training for it this morning, would need to build the endurance and the strength and the lung capability. Would work great to do hills one day, long slow walk a day, hills a day, and keep building on it all. Thinking about it.

Direct Quote from Chapter 1 of the manual "Understanding the ACE-certified Personal Trainer’s scope of practice can be empowering, as it defines a unique profession dedicated to helping people improve their fitness, health, and quality of life through physical activity. Many of the professions in healthcare are devoted to treating disease, while a personal trainer primarily helps people avoid disease. In a society where almost two-thirds of the adult population is overweight and physically inactive, and youth are projected to possibly live shorter lives than their parents, the role that ACE-certified Personal Trainers play in the healthcare continuum has never been more important."

Woo Hoo, I am so excited. I have been considering this again for the longest time, but I just enrolled with ACE Fitness to complete my Certification as Personal Trainer. For those that know me, this was my goal before buying the Curves Franchise and I had been working towards it. Owning and managing the business had put that dream on hold for a bit, however, I can only imagine how much more capable I will be of helping our ladies get healthy, fit and strong with all of this information at our fingertips. It seems no matter what I do, I keep coming back to this. So once again I am reaching to achieve another goal. Ya know, when you keep coming back to something I think it is probably God's way of letting us know we are supposed to be doing it. So, within the next year or so, my signature line should read Health and Happiness, Peggi Curves Owner/Manager ACE Fitness, CPT —

I could wake up at 4:30 Mon, Tues and Thursday and get my workout in before work. those days I don't get one in, its too busy once I get to the club. If I want to change my body, I need to change my habits. I could keep studying my ACE book and then when ready, maybe come fall, pay for the class and be that much further ahead. I really want that certification and think I like the ACE better than the NCSF. However, I have both books, just not the time to read and study. Need to make that a priority also. Need more time to work with the business too, we have had so many changes lately and I keep trying to learn all that but its taking away from building the membership and the contact with the members. Hmm, these all fit into my top goals. Maybe I better get back to work on the push challenge.
Wish I knew for sure. I keep looking at this picture. They are trying to save Conneaut Lake Park. We spent so much time there when the kids were young. We would go at least once a summer for a few years. Mikes family met us there often. Good times. Took mom and Cheri to Country Cupboard yesterday, what a great day. I am planting a fairy garden. Have to find a perfect spot for it and am thinking up by the gazebo. Woke up to sunshine this morning, just love it.

"I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a fingerprint - and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you." -- Oprah Winfrey, Talk Show Host

1/1/2013 Tuesday, January 01, 2013 I love firsts, the first new day of the week, the month and especially the New Year. I love setting goals on the first new day of the week, the month and the New Year. Here are my goals for this first day of 2013. Still number one is to build my business. 300 to 400 members at the club this year. Less clutter-More organized. Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without. Lose weight, body fat and belly. Weigh 110, body fat under 25% this year. Financially secure and able to retire within years.Amp up savings. Curves Smart installed at the club Run one complete time around the track. More free time with family on vacation. Read the bible. Those are my main goals for this new year. I have the two biggies, build the business and lose weight, body fat and belly broke down into baby steps how to get there. These goals will be written out weekly in my planner under the goal list and may possibly change as goals sometimes do. Some will be accomplished, the list will be added to and is an on going project always with me.

If I could study one chapter a week, learn one chapter per week, really know it do the labs, read the guide, answer the questions. Really know it, one chapter per week, I would be able to take the test in about 6 or 7 months. I have been putting this off since buying the club. everything always seems to get in the way. This is still a goal for me. I need to make it a priority. Wish there was a class close by that I could take a few days and be done with it, but I checked again and there is nothing scheduled close by.

My new goals include to clean out one drawer, closet, shelf, thing, etc daily. Started today with my jewelry box, the wooden one on my dresser, Got rid of tons of junk. Felt great. Enjoying the day. John is at camp, I am home and off. Christmas music is playing on sirius. Snow is falling gently and i am enjoying time off and here alone. Cher and I went for our second annual Black Friday shopping trip yesterday. Had a blast. We were both so excited, neither of us slept the night before. Gone about 12 hours. Lots of gifts bought.
