Picky: About my jobs, clothes, & bars.

Remember that personal trainer job for which I just applied on Sunday? I was contacted the very next day! Continuing with the lightening speed of it all, I actually had an interview yesterday!

Open for Business!

I’ll spare you all from the dramatic “You like me!” Sally Field reenactment, but that’s honestly how I feel! Your responses to my last “cheesy” post were so genuine, warm, and inspiring and I thank you SOOOO very much for them. Even if the next day’s events hadn’t gone as they did, I still would …

I bypassed the welcoming table full of goodies {okaaaay, I snatched one cookie} and headed straight for the heart rate monitors. Somehow I managed to lose 70 pounds without one time even knowing if my heart rate …

Hey y’all. 🙂 Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. I had a great reason–I do my fitness work in retail and this was Black Friday week. So you know what I was doing! I’ll have more to say about all of that later. Right now, something a little more juicy appeared that fired me up and I …

Cherie Runs Exams

“Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment Would you capture it or just let it slip?“                                                                                             — “Lose Yourself”, Eminem I captured it yesterday and I’m still in shock. Now, maybe it was the fact that I listened to Lose Yourself {This song …
