I got the words in the title from "Brothers of IRON", the autobiography of Joe and Ben Weider. My hope is that I will bring focus, discipline, and energy to the NASM training this weekend, to my clients that I work with, and to my life in every area.
I worked with two clients today and enjoyed every single minute. I know that I'm getting noticed around my gym, which isn't a great thing, since they have their own trainers (I'm still not accepting compensation for training). But how can you not get noticed when the gym trainers take people to different machines, set the weight, and count, where I'm doing stuff like having races on the rowing machines with my clients or doing lunge walks together around the gym??? When I get scared about this weekend, I'm going to remember my words (focus, discipline, energy) and remember what I'm working towards.
To that end, I've been listening to some of my hypnosis CDs again. I'm not entirely certain that they help, but they sure can't hurt. The ones I've been listening to are "Ultimate Confidence" and "Resolution Activator" both from Wendi.com.
One final note (and then I must pack for San Diego!) -- I'm designing my business cards. I think stuff like this is super fun. I think I'm going to use two fonts from a scrapbooking website called Two Peas in a Bucket. Here's the text:

Hard work pays off!
Once I get it formatted, I'll put up the copy so you can see.
Ok, time to shower, pack, mom-up for afternoon pickup, then head to the airport. Wish me luck!
Oh, and I scheduled my test. It's happening on Friday, November 3rd at 11:00. If anyone has any extra brain cells they'd like to toss my way...
