Just for fun, I looked up the blog post I made a year ago today, December 27, 2011. Interesting. I was coming out of a very difficult period. From August 2011 until December 2011 everything in my program was in disarray. I was dumped by my trainer who I trusted, turned down for coaching by another local trainer – just confused and lost. I suspected these people looked at me and saw a mid-life crisis who ran out of money for personal training. I was no longer a revenue source.
Turns out that as soon as I was in a new place, I was surrounded by people who wanted nothing from me. They just wanted to help. I was welcomed and tutored. I reconnected with an experienced trainer who over the next few months became my friend and current coach.
Things turned out pretty good, huh? I hit my target dead on. It was really important to me that I competed on August 25, 2011. I would not let the drama postpone my dream. I did not have to compromise anything.
Just in case you feel a little lost sometimes, check this old blog post. It was good for me to reread it. You’ll read it knowing how the story ends. Well, not exactly the end. There are bigger, scarier goals in front of me.
