I've been away for a few days because, well, I've been away for a few days. The "where" was Hartford, Connecticut. The "why" was a series of meetings spread out over four days. Well actually three, as the meetings I was supposed to have today were canceled, so I was able to get back to Scranton a few hours early. That was a good thing.
Traveling takes it toll on me, as do the long meetings. I'm a fairly extreme introvert, which I know is strange given my occupation (trainer), but never the less being "on" like this for days on end is very difficult. Make that exceptionally difficult. Making it worse is the fact that my diet gets all screwed up (eating things I don't normally eat, in much larger quantities), I don't have time to workout, and sleeping can be difficult.
The sleeping thing is interesting, as I usually don't have a problem sleeping, but I tend to get up horribly early. This past week, I woke up anywhere between 4:30am - 4:50am. I think the reason is that it's embedded in the back of my skull that I must not over sleep, and as a result I'm almost hyper-sensitive about the time. The bizarre thing is that I NEVER over sleep, ever.
Anyway, as dysfunctional as home can be, I'm still glad to be back.
