Working Out and Job Search

After much complaining and whining "do i have to?" to myself, I finally got my butt to the gym today. And it felt great! I wasn't as out of shape as I thought I would be. I remember the first time I ever did the elliptical, I thought I was having a heart attack after like 3 minutes. I managed to go my normal 33 minutes (330 calories) today without a problem. I just really need to do something to get in shape before Mexico. That may be a lost cause at this point, but hopefully I can get rid of some of this gut. I don't want to be mistaken for a beached whale.

Jroy has been my motivation for this. She's done incredible. She lost tons of weight and is now in the "toning up" phase. I wish our gym offered classes like hers does, but I guess I can't complain. I pay less than $30/month and it's 24 hour access. I do like my gym, but I would rather like it to have workout classes.

Speaking of workout, there's an excellent show on Bravo! called Workout. I watched it last season, and the new season started on Monday. It's basically a show about a personal trainer who opened up her own high end fitness center. It focuses around her, her girlfriend, her trainers, and her clients. Great show and a great motivator.

After I had just about given up on the high school counselor position, I get a call from them. I don't know what to do now. I have a job offer at the hospital I'm at now, and I think I want to take it, but I think that maybe I should go on the interview at the high school as well. I don't know. I had sort of convinced myself that I didn't want the job. The job consists of mostly scheduling classes for the kids and not too much counseling. I really want a job that focuses on the counseling. What to do, what to do. I'll figure it out.

I'm also considering putting of the CRC exam (certified rehabilitation counselor) until October. I'm registered to take it in April, but I don't know when the hell I would have time to study. I could also put off the CEU's for awhile if I wait until October. I most likely won't even use that credential. The credentials I want are my LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) and NCC (Nationally Certified Counselor). Those are what I would need to do any kind of private practice counseling, which is what I ultimately want to do.

In other quick news, Neil Gaiman has announced that tomorrow will see the release of the Stardust trailer...yay!!
