Internship Love

Some of you may know I have been in and out of blogging this past week and a half, the reason being twofold:  I moved and I started my internship. :)

I mentioned it a few times that I was moving from La Crosse back to Eau Claire where my family and boyfriend are, and it finally happened on Wednesday.  I wasn't planning on moving quite that early, I actually expected to be in La Crosse for another week, but my internship start date pushed my plans up a little.  Here's a sneak peak of my new place (more pictures to come once things are in place)...

Excited about the desk since I didn't have one before
What you might not have known was that I was moving in with my boyfriend.  I didn't really advertise this, because I wanted to wait until it happened, but I guess now it's out! It has been fun, yet challenging (which I'm thinking of doing a series on) moving in with him.  


Today was day two at my internship... I can tell already that I am going to LOVE it!   I got two shirts to wear as my uniform (the perk of being a trainer you don't have to dress up!).

My new mantra 

They have let me work with a couple clients on my own already, which is really cool that they trust me and my abilities to let me do that.  There are a number of things that I love about this job/career move:
  1. I get to meet new people and hear their stories
  2. I'm learning a TON of new/unique lifts and conditioning drills (Momentum is all about unique, challenging training)
  3. Getting to workout on the job
  4. I get to use the gym for free = no membership fees for at least 6 months!
  5. I work with athletes, people trying to lose weight and people looking for general fitness training

Tomorrow I will be spending my day in La Crosse cleaning my apartment and turning in my keys... blah!  Looks like I'll be rocking out to some good tunes all day :)

What are you doing/have you done this weekend?

Do you have a "life moto" or a mantra you use?


  1. Awesome news about all the exciting changes in your life right now. Loving the mottos on the shirts, they rock!

  2. @Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner They have all sorts of sayings on their shirts... I have my eye on a couple in particular that I'd like to get my hands on :)

  3. That seriously sounds like such a great internship. so cool!
