Baby Mama Got Back


I am…SASHA FIERCE whaaat?

I find out today if we are having a boy or girl. I’m so excited. Also, I can’t express enough how anxious I am for the baby to arrive. Yes I am ready to meet this new person but, even more so, I am ready to not be pregnant any more. I have this itch to  teach (instruct aerobics) again.  There is a lot of work I need to do on myself first. Basically, I have been pregnant for the last three years. Previously, I always taught kind of reluctantly, to fill a need in the aerobics department. This time it is different. After all this time away from it I realize how much I love it. I’m good at it. It is so wonderful to find  that “thing” that you are passionate about.

With this realization, there is a lot of work to do. I want and need to re-cert myself and  get the professional certifications required to be able to present myself to people as competent and knowledgeable. It can be pricey to pursue these certifications on your own (A.C.E.)

I guess you could say I am a health and fitness geek. I soak up everything on the subject. But even if you just enjoy working out and you are a stay at home mom like myself, teaching aerobics in some form is a great way to express your individuality and maintain a hobby that is just for you. It is so easy to feel like you sort of lose yourself when you do not work outside of the home. If you already frequent  a gym especially like a YMCA since they are a non-profit facility and may be in need of volunteers, you may be able to get a basic certification at their expense. This is how I got started. Don’t think you can’t do it because you are shy and reserved either. That was me. I am relatively reserved and definitely prefer to be in the back row. As a matter of fact, when I participate in other instructors classes I always take the back row still  to this day. But, I’m different when it is my class and I’m all by myself out front. I know I have to be heard and that forces me to speak loudly and your own music is energizing too. Maybe I should give myself a stage name like Beyonce did (Sasha Fierce). LOL. Believe me, I am just kidding. But if you have any ideas…

    I have visited your site once again and read through all of your blogs. While I do not have the passion for working out like you, I have enjoyed this blog site and find your writing animated and expressive. I like it.
    Good work Sis! Don’t give up on this. I am sharing this site with all my friends.

    I love you.
