So for the last month I’ve been studying for my big certification test – the ACSM Health Fitness Specialist certification, to be exact. I didn’t really have a whole lot of information on what to expect from the test, so I was really nervous. I passed up on a LOT of fun things – The Husband went on many trips and played many times without me. It was hard for me, to stay home and study for something I didn’t even think I would pass.

See, I was planning on taking this test in August, and that was stressful enough. But less than a month ago, I found out that the exam would be changing on July 1st, and all of the study materials along with it. Blahhhh. So I was stuck with a decision: take the test 2 months before I was planning on taking it, or buy all new materials and start studying all over? I ultimately decided to take the exam before it changed, and so preparing for it became my whole life for the next few weeks.

I wish I had applied myself like that in college haha.

It all paid off though: I passed! I was so nervous that I was shaking, and I couldn’t believe it when I got my score! All of the studying, the sacrifice, the prayer and fasting, and the stress were worth it! I’m certified and it’s all over with!
