ugh, it’s been 25 days since I’ve updated my blog and I’ve been harrassed over it, haha. So I’m relenting, here it is, with also a partial explanation as to why I haven’t updated.
I’ve made some big decisions just lately, and after reviewing some personal issues I decided to explore other options open to me. So I put in a few applications for jobs. A few days later I had a job interview (on a Friday), on Monday I had a second interview and Tuesday I started work. Phew…….all that so quickly!
So I think it was about the 9th Oct I started there and been pretty busy since. It’s at a web development/graphic design company and I’ve been busy working during the day, PT and classes in the evening, wearing me out a little especially since I still teach classes on the weekend too. But I don’t regret it and this new job actually offers awesome opportunities. I think this is the kind of job I’ve wanted/needed for about 4 years, and before deciding to go into fitness full time. Somehow I think I’ve been steered in this direction and this was meant to happen.
The 2 guys I work with are absolutely awesome, and I love the level of trust there is there. I’m quite new there, but they’ve had no hestitation at all in challenging me with new tasks, leaving me with responsibility and allowing me freedom which is not only awesome, but also really rare to work with people like that. I already feel like an important part of the team and felt part of the project we had with such a tight deadline last week. Still some changes and updates have continued into this week, but the urgentness has gone now.
My new job also means one other thing. I’ll be cutting down on the amount of personal training I’m doing. Not completely dropping it, but it means I have given notice to cancelling my licence with Zest, meaning I’ll no longer wear a yellow shirt. I have been given permission though to continue training clients as a red shirt, but without being employed on shifts. I’ll just train the people I have, I won’t be doing freebies or anything of the like.
As for other things going on, weather is driving me nuts at the moment. One evening I have the heater on and the next morning it’s 30C. Then 2 days later and the heater is back on. grrrrr
