My hips hate me. We did hip abductions with a band tied around our calf muscles in my Circuit Sculpt class on Monday morning. I showed some mercy to at least one of my students by choosing the band that was tied really tightly. This is a decision that I have been regretting all week because I am just now capable of walking normally again. You might think that I'm joking or exaggerating. These hips don't lie, Shakira. They hurt. (Does anyone else wish they could dance like Shakira?)

In other news, these came into my life this week:
Long story short, they offered to help me get the ACE certification I always wanted. And I couldn't be more grateful. Except, well...now I have to study. Again. Because I am certain there are areas in which I could use some refreshing. And I'm sure things have changed.
So, here we go again.
I've got six months to schedule that exam...
Question: Any ACE certified personal trainers out there? Introduce yourself!
