It's official...Turbo Kick Certified!

Monday, February 03, 2014

The Turbo Kick Certification Class was a lot of fun! I was a complete sweaty mess after it but well worth it. According to my Fitbit I burned over 2200 calories for the day and took over 17,000 steps. Linda our instructor was great. She said 99% of us are ready to teach right now and I believe I could do it right now if I was not completely scared out of my mind to think of myself in front of a room full of people teaching a class. I am not confident enough with the moves yet. It is a little different than TurboFire which I am used to doing. I want to be able to do the moves in the proper form so my students do not get injured. I am just proud that I crossed one thing off my goals list for the year!

I have put in for two extensions with my personal training but no more. I will get to it. I am now taking the online tests and I am pleasantly surprised on how much I just know and do not have to refer to my book for the answer.

Setting goals have been a part of who I am and I am so glad that I am finally crossing some of them off now.

Turbo Kick Certification

Monday, January 20, 2014

Oh my this is the week that I get to go to the Turbo Kick certification.



To be honest I am completely scared out of my mind! I did find a Turbo Kick DVD to purchase off Ebay. The Turbo Kick DVDs are suppose to be for instructors only but I found a few to buy. It is definitely different but yet the same as TurboFire which is my Soul-Mate workout!

I really think I have found a calling to help others get into the best shape of their lives. I understand what it means to be over weight, stuck in a platuea, not have the support of your family, etc. I can relate with people because I have been there. And to I am not at my ideal weight yet. But I am working every day to get closer to it. It is not about being perfect it is about being the better than you were yesterday. (Okay, sorry got off topic a little bit)

This Turbo Kick certification is one of the things I wanted to accomplish this year and I am getting it done nice and early in the year. I am hoping by July that I can start teaching it. I do not want to jump into teaching it too soon. I want to perfect my form and hopefully lose a few more pounds before too.

Goals for 2014

Saturday, January 04, 2014

I think a picture will best describe what my goals are for 2014.

I am about to complete my first goal of getting Turbo Kick certified which is going to happen January 25th! I am so excited and nervous about it.

I have already started attending Church on a more regular basis. The only time I will not be at church is when we are out of town to see my parents.

I am working on my personal training certification right now. I just have the final exam then I have to get AED/CPR certification done also.

I am very excited about 2014. This is going to be a great year!

2013 Reflection & Ready for 2014

Monday, December 30, 2013

2013 was not a bad year. I definitely have had its ups & downs but mostly ups because I have learned to not dwell on the things that do not go as planned.

I learned this year that if it is not working to change it and not keep doing it just for the satisification of completing it. I have learned to love me where I am right now. The number on the scale or the size of clothes does not define who I am & my worthiness of loving myself. Once I have learned to love myself, my mood & confidence has increased. I even noticed that I am losing a lot of inches and toning up all areas on my body. Being hard on myself and not completely accepting who I am had some very negative effects on all areas of my life.

One area I am really going to concentrate on in 2014 is my eating habits. I tend to eat a lot of carbs which I believe is not helping my weight loss efforts. I know we need carbs for our workouts because it is our energy source but when you eat too many they are not burned off and stored in the body. I need to find the right balance for my body to keep it at a high level of burning.

I will start prepping my meals a couple times per week. I am a stay at home mom but I get busy with different webinars I attend, making phone calls to my customers and responding to eamils to them as well. I need to prep my meals so I do not give in to temptation and find the first quick (and most of the time fattening & high in carbs) thing to eat. Planning is key!

This will be the year that I finally get certified as a Personal Trainer and start the avenue of my life. I want to help others lose weight and feel great. I know I can help others because I have been there & have over came a lot on my weight loss journey. So I guess I am trying to say I am relate-able.

In 2014 I will only do one workout program per time instead of trying to juggle two or more at the same time. Just because I am a stay at home mom does not mean all my spare time needs to be spend working out. I need to enjoy life and my children. They are both getting older (18 &15) and want to spend time with them.

So in 2014 I will

Love myself
Plan & prep my meals
Drink 1 gallon of water daily
Get 10,000 steps in per day
Read my Bible daily
Go to Church when I am at home (we go to my parents at least once per month)
Keep my house cleaning schedule
Write a blog (on here and terriehicks.com) 3x per week (at least)
Record 2 YouTube videos per week (at least)
Get certified as a Personal Trainer

    Awesome Plan Terrie! Love your goal to be a personal trainer. I need to work on loving myself and my life right now not when _____ happens. I'll spend my life waiting instead of living. You can do it!!
