I am on day 2 of blogging- WOOHOO! It's hard getting back into a blogging groove because I know what I want to talk about but don't know how to start.
A couple of things have happened since I last blogged, which I think was March now looking back at my writing history.
- I graduated with a Criminal Justice Degree.
- I got to participate in an amazing internship program with a local police department.
- I got a part time job doing security for some pretty cool venues ( Like working the Paul McCartney Concert at Miller Park aka LEGENDARY )
- I became an aunt! ( Check out Instagram for
cutefreaking adorable baby selfies )
- I have lost more weight.
- I can do legit push-ups now. ( Bye-bye girl push-ups )
- I can do more than 2 sit-ups since this summer when I first started practicing.
For all of you who don't know, my career goal is to become a police officer. I knew that I needed to start becoming more fit, not because I need to pass a physical agility test, but to be in better shape in-case I need to protect myself.
I did fall off the working out wagon during the summer because I was just so busy. I know, excuses, excuses. All I think about when I just typed that is this lady...
I experienced working 3rd shift, which is horrible and then from that going straight to my internship at 8 am. It was rough some days and I thought, WHY AM I DOING THIS?! But you know what lady with the perfect body and 3 kids, if I don't get enough sleep, I'll be one angry person..
So, yeah, I picked sleep over working out. My bad...
I will say though, it was totally worth it and would do it all over again.
Currently- I am looking for another job while applying to more police departments. I am in the process with one department right now (SO KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED!) and am waiting to hear back from them about the next step.
I am working out about 5-6 days a week. I am lifting more and doing interval cardio. I have another physical test for another police department coming up in February, so I am also getting ready for that. I took this department's test last summer and I failed out because I couldn't do 29 sit-ups in a minute. Well guess what I have been working on since that day- SIT-UPS. I'm ready to take that test again!
Well, there's what I have been up to since the summer. Hope everyone had a great Christmas/holiday break and I hope that 2014 has some amazing things in store for me and YOU!
BTW, if any of you run into mother nature, tell her to stop dumping snow and freezing cold weather in Wisconsin. K thanks.
