The insanity of it all...

Well, it's all starting to hit... my schedule is finally beginning to fill with clients. It's no longer just 6:00 a.m.'s or 7:00 p.m.'s. On some days I'm seeing a 6:00 a.m., 7:00 a.m., 8:00 a.m., 9:30 a.m. This is great, I like being booked like that. It means I'm productive and "making things happen."

Over the past few months I used to go home, take a nap, and then head to either HW downtown or HW suburbia for the evening. Nowadays I'm beginning to see regular appts. on some days at 10:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 3:30, 4:00, etc. Again, a great thing, but I'm getting less and less sleep and it's taking its toll.

I keep reminding myself that this is just like the days right out of college when you begin your career-- bottom of the ladder, low pay, the ray of hope that better things are to come.

The only difference is that I may have hit "reset" on my career choice, but already had a fairly expensive lifestyle in place. This, or course, is what necessitates my insane hours. I barely make anything and will not see a financial jump until next November. VERY frustrating, yes. But I believe it's worth it in the long run. However, in the interim... I'm SO damn exhausted...

The other funny thing is that I disagree with some ways that the club is run. I've been talking to both in-club management and corporate. Heh- I'm even having a lunch meeting with the Regional Fitness Director tomorrow. **wry smile** "You can take the girl out of the corporate way of life, but you can't take the corporate way of life out of the girl...!"

"I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, I-- Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz...."
