Crossroads! Don't ya hate em?! And them love em?!

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

I am looking for work. I am not sure which direction to take. I am registered with two temp agencies, have a possible part-time job that wouldn't start until December and bills are stacking up, but the money is dwindling.

What to do?! This is a great and challenging time! I can do anything, which is amazing! I can do anything, which is also a bit daunting because I feel a little directionless. I think I want to do a couple of things, but right now...the bills keep coming and it is giving me a panicky, anxiety feeling. When those feelings come forth, my learned response is to eat. Oi!

However, I am one step ahead...because rather than eating at this moment, I am blogging. I am expressing these feelings instead of eating them and that is a triumph in and of itself.

I will share something....there is a position that just opened up for a gym manager. I have the education (actually more than they are looking for) and most of the experience. I just don't have the body.

However, this is a management job, not necessarily a trainer job. I am thinking of going and meeting with the manager this week. I am a little nervous about it.

Also, what do you wear to a gym when searching for a job? I am thinking a nice dress...I think a suit would be overkill. Should I call first? I just don't want to go through the internet cause that just gets you lost in the mix! I know if I could lose this weight while being a manager at a gym, I could definitely inspire others. The time, the possibility of weight loss feels more right than it ever has! I know this is going to happen!

Is anyone else a gym manager? Do you have any tips? Any feedback is appreciated!

    Way to go on blogging instead of eating!! I think a dress would be fine and that you're right, going through the internet would just make you a faceless name. Good Luck and go for it!!

    I can relate to the addition stress you've been feeling without a job. Great job choosing blogging over eating. emoticon
    Good luck! I'm glad you're not going to let fear keep you from pursuing this opportunity.

    Go for the job that you want! The worst thing that could happen would be a no. But you'll never know if you don't try. Good luck!
