Sitting here watching my favorite show ever (Real Housewives) and thought about how its Sunday and I haven’t posted yet! So many good things happened this week so maybe a little reflection would be good.
So my Monday morning started with my first personal training appointment at my new gym. I cried.
I know what you’re thinking and that’s not why.
I accidentally got sold on a contract for 12 months of PT. Well not “accidentally” I guess. I expressed that I will hopefully be starting nursing school in the fall and won’t be working full time, so I do not need any extra expenses. The guy selling me went on to tell me they only have 12-month contracts. I asked flat out if they had 6-month contracts and he told me no. So I stupidly signed. This had happened on Friday, so when I showed up for my first appointment on Monday morning I was on level 10 of anxiety because it marinated all weekend that I shouldn’t have done that.
Remember the episode of friends when Chandler and Ross go to quit the gym?
I was prepared for the worst.
Was I going to have to quit the bank too? *Insert laughter*
So anyway, my new personal trainer (not the same guy who signed me up) got tears from me bright and early. Probably keeps you awake better than coffee on a Monday morning right? Crazy lady crying at the gym has now been checked off my bucket list. He ended up being so understanding and when the other guy who signed me up came in we changed my contract to 6-months. (Why he lied to me when I signed up, I don’t know but I am choosing not to focus on it because I want to kick ass at the gym and not let this ruin my experience).
This was one of those moments where I wanted to crawl in a hole and have my mom go into the gym and tell them “YOU CHANGE MY DAUGHTERS CONTRACT RIGHT NOW”. Does that feeling ever go away? I’m 26 and still need my mommy sometimes. Ok, like all the time, let’s be real.
It was a growing moment for me. I have power, I can handle my business like a big girl and I can conquer anything.
…..even though I cried.
The lesson I am taking away from this week is not to believe everything that a salesperson tells you. Which is something I should know as I have previously worked in sales. I also learned that not everyone is going to be as honest to you as you are to them. I need to speak up when I am uncomfortable about something.
GO WITH YOUR GUT ALWAYS <— best advice anyone could ever give you!
I ended this weekend with applying for nursing school. Now I have to patiently wait until mid-March for an answer. Patience is not always a virtue I have. I have worked incredibly hard just to get myself in a position to apply to nursing school and now that I am not in control anymore is TERRIFYING.
Goals for the upcoming weeks are going to be to focus on my exercise and meditation. Calming down and understanding that I cannot control everything.
Happy Sunday Y’all and go conquer the week!
