Im a commercial banker. I agree that balancing my training is 100% mental. Summer is always worse for me.
My old man was a plumber and has the body of an 85 year old at 55 to show for it. Always told me to get a job that wouldn't break my body, figured i'd let the powerlifting do that.

I'm a mechanic helper at Case International Tractor. Everything that goes on the tractors and combiners is very heavy, so it's a very physical job. Also in the South Carolina heat it is very hot in the summer. And sometimes I am out in the sun all day. I just try to drink a gallon or more of water a day and keep my food intake up.
Elementary P.E. Teacher and love it. Used to coach H.S. football and Middle School basketball too. I had little time to train or do anything else til I got out of coaching.

During the summer I work for a fire hose/ladder testing company for various fire departments, though.
"All people dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous ones, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible."
I'm a dental student, so most of my life/time is scheduled around that coming first. Yes, I have had to adjust a lot. Never have enough sleep, rarely have a great diet, etc. It has certainly slowed my progress, but I make it work. I have had to move days around and skip one here or there, but it has never thrown me off by more than a few days. I think that lifting at 6:00am on 5 hours sleep puts me at about 80% of my potential fully rested though, so hopefully soon I will start really moving.
