Just a little hard work goes a long way

by - Tuesday, July 28, 2015

At the end of January I started on my journey of studying to become a Certified Fitness Trainer. What was suppose to be a 4 month course, for me, turned out to be 6 months. Luckily ISSA gives a 2 month extension free of charge if you aren't finished with the coursework, or ready. 

To be honest, it is a very tough exam. Not only is the coursebook extremely intimidating, but the exam is long, in the end, I had completed it in 4 days, back to back, morning til night. Hence why I've been so quiet on here the past few weeks. Sunday night, after one quick review over, I looked at P and squealed in nervousness before pushing that 'submit exam' button. 

After I submitted it, I automatically felt a huge load raise off my shoulders. It was done with ! No going back, no changing answers, no fixing essays... done done done. Pass or Fail, I knew I did my best. I stayed confident regardless.

Yesterday evening, P and I went for a few laps around the park. On our drive home, my phone goes off and I get 2 emails. I looked at him and gave him this horrid puppy dog eye look and said "I just got 2 emails.... eeeee". Knowing how nervous I was with my results, he assured me it would be fine.

At this point I can't remember if I was breathing, but I took a huge gulp, sat there.... *click*..... 

Dear Louann,

Congratulations on passing the ISSA 8th edition CFT!

I SCREAMED, I screamed and I clasped my hand across my mouth and my eyes filled up with tears as I whimpered "I passed." I was overjoyed, relieved and so very proud of myself and at that point, I imagined my Dad looking down on me, also proud of my accomplishments. 
One of my goals for 2015 is now complete with success !
