Wow, thank you so much everyone who has checked out this blog. I’m excited to see where it goes and how it takes off.
This post will go into more depth about me, my little family, and the changes that have happened recently or are happening now. It’ll probably be a longer post so if you read all the way through, thank you! You are truly wonderful!
So, just a quick bit of background on me. I come from two awesome parents and have three crazy, quirky, all around fantastic siblings. When I was younger we moved around a lot because my dad was in the military. We’ve lived in lots of cool places and I’m thinking I want to finish my shoulder tattoo as a big piece of art that incorporates a little bit of everywhere I’ve lived so far. I think it’ll be cool, we’ll see?
Two years ago I married my nutty and absolutely incredible husband, it has been an adventure of fun and growth. Who knew you’d learn how selfish you are when you get married? The week after we got married Cole moved to Oklahoma to start his new job and I followed a week later. We spent two years in OK where we got involved with a university bible study that had some of the most awesome people in it. About a month ago we moved back down to Texas, Cole got a promotion of sorts, and I started taking online classes.
We have two kit-cats, a little black girl named Meadow and a chunky gray sweet boy named Todd. Meadow is cool because she loves to go on hikes with me and explore new areas. Todd, well he doesn’t do much of anything but he is super cute.
In 2015 I graduated from Tarleton State (GO TEXANS) with a degree in Kinesiology. During my last semester of school and the summer months before moving I worked in a small gym as a yoga instructor which was so amazing! During our two year stay in OK I took a little bit of a break from the health and wellness scene. Now it is calling my name louder than ever and I am beginning the adventure back to fitness by working toward becoming a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) and Fitness Nutrition Specialist (FNS). The courses are all online and should hopefully take roughly ten weeks to finish.
The focus of this blog, at least for now, is going to be documenting this new journey. I plan on chatting about how I chose NASM, how long the courses actually take, what I struggle with along the way, how I study for the exams, and anything else that pops up along the way. It’ll be almost like journaling for me, but hopefully helps others in the process.
Well, there you go. That was essentially a crash course on Jess. I hope you enjoyed reading through this and looking at the pictures, mostly of the cats because they’re just adorable. If you have any questions or any posts you want to see please let me know! I’d love to help in any way I can.
