Week #17- Behavior Change & Psychology & Test Date Scheduled
Posted Jan 25 2010 12:00am
Well hello everyone! It’s kind of a yucky day here, so different than it was last week. Only positive it is fairly warm, but the monsoon type rain is making it quite a blah day. Hopefully it will clear up soon cause days like this are a struggle for me mood wise. Anyway, last week was jammed packed for me. I even ended up working on Sat for about 4 hours to run training for students who are interested in working for me next year. This is a new requirement for new applicants so it means I have had to create the training from the ground up. I have spent a lot of time since I got back from holiday break working on it. Was a great training and well worth all the hard work I put into getting it together. That is one thing I really enjoy, putting together and running training sessions. Guess that is a good thing considering I have interest in working as a personal trainer in the future. My current job has lots of cross over skills that will be helpful with personal training.
Well as always since it is Monday, that means To Do List time!
Week #17- Behavior Change & Psychology
Manual: Pages 409-422
Workbook: Pages 127-129
Master the Manual: Pages 101-104
Audio: Chapter 15
Flashcards: Chapter 15
Online Review: Chapters 13-15
So, I set a goal last week to schedule my certification test which I am glad to report that I did. I will be taking my test on March 13th. I will be done covering all new materials in the Manual by Feb 15th, so that will give me close to a month to review everything in-depth before my test. I also scheduled the test on that date because I will be off work the week leading up to it so that means I should have plenty of time to get extra study hours in.
My goal this week is to get a 90% or better on the online review for Chapters 13-15. Should be able to swing that, especially since the materials are in areas I have already been exposed to many times through my current work experience and during my college degree studies.
This week’s chapter has been really interesting. Lots of good information on helping support someone that is making changes for better fitness/health. I really found the section on the “all or nothing” thinking patterns that some people get into to be quite enlightening, especially since I struggled with that in my past. One of the great benefits for me personally while working on this certification has been how much I have been able to learn and incorporate into my own healthy lifestyle plan.
Well I have another busy week here at work so I better get back to it! Hope you all have a great week.
