Something Had to Give
Happy St. Patty’s Day, Friends!! Hope you all had a great day! Sadly mine was more of the usual….no real celebrating St. Patrick for me (I did wear green eyeliner today, though!).
So, you may have noticed the many “hats” I wear:
Group Fitness Instructor and Coordinator:
All the while holding down a full-time job and maintaining somewhat of a social life!
Well, it finally got to be too much. I just couldn’t do it all anymore. I was losing sight of my life and missing out on so much being so busy. And something had to give.
So, unfortunately, last week I resigned from teaching (and being the coordinator!) at the gym. I have been talking to J about this for about 3 months and it’s really the right decision for me at this time. Maybe that will change in the future, but I can’t be certain. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE teaching (and it’s something I’m good at!), but it’ s all the extra time spent outside of the gym preparing, reviewing, practicing, etc that just adds up. Plus, I was teaching so often that I never really got to go to the gym and just enjoy it for myself anymore.
I’m excited to go back to the gym and take classes and focus on myself. They’re not getting rid of me that easy….
It will be nice to have my evenings free to focus on my family and spend more quality time together. I feel like I’ve been running around like a madwoman for 4 years. I’m ready for some downtime. I think I’ve deserved it. And my boys deserve a mom and a wife who is home more often than not.
What about you? Do you wear too many “hats”??
