The last 24 hours have been nothing short of crazy.
Yesterday morning, I received a call from the owner of the gym I applied to. He wanted to negotiate my salary and go over the role. By the end of the phone call I was offered the GM position that I wanted.
I have a couple things that make me nervous about the job, but overall, I’m excited. As you know, I’m still on my journey back to being fit after having my little munchkin 8 weeks ago. What you may not know is this is my first full time job in 2 years. The last job I had was as a manager of a kickboxing gym and I injured myself so badly, I had to quit and was very seriously considering surgery.
So here I am doing Turbofire, a cardio kickboxing program, and returning to manage a gym. I’m a facing exactly the same components that broke me. And I’m determined to not let them get to my head.
I’m 2 weeks into my eating healthy/exercise program and I’ve lost 2 lbs. 2 last week and zero this week. I was devastated but gently reminded myself that I am still healing. I literally went from eating whatever and resting, to meticulously tracking, returning to a vegetarian lifestyle and working out 5-6 days a week. It’s A LOT.
I have to be patient. I’m taking things day by day and I have resolved to not let any negativity come out of my mouth about my progress or my body anymore.
So here’s to tomorrow guys!
Another day down and happily looking forward to another :)
