Sounds like you do got a lot going on but no worries you will find your nich.. you know they say all you need is 10 minutes a day to reep the benifits of a full work out.. there is no reason to spend 5 hours a day in a gym you can do something to target spot work an area for 10 minutes.. try walking away the pounds dvd in the am.. or and a yoga dvd at night.. also inlist on doing little things through out the day, take the stairs at work, park far away from the building.. yes walk at lunch, it dose not have to be a sweaty power walk.. to reep the benifits..
little things you do or change will show results..
you can do it.. enjoy your new job.. good luck

Do not get discouraged, just remember how good it felt to put on those jeans from a few years ago. As far as exercising, one day a week is better than Zero. Once you settle into your new job and you get more comfortable you may find new ways to be more active. I also have a full time job, 2 kids...etc and I am so tired when I go to bed in the evening, I am still tired when I wake up in the morning I am lucky enough to be able to do a 30 min workout at the gym during my lunch hour and I just started the 28 day boot camp with Nicole it is only 10 minutes of exercise...I feel so good about myself after I have worked out (even if my muscles are screaming at me) keep up the good work!

Try not to stress out too much. Starting a new job is already stressful enough. Instead, take it one day at a time. When you feel energized in the morning - exercise. Otherwise, just try to increase your walking around the office - maybe go up and down the stairs more often if possible...or if you have a cubicle, do some chair exercises during the day.

I work Saturdays, but I'm off on Sunday. I just feel like one day a week isn't enough to get where I need to be. I already have hit that spot where it's getting harder to lose as it is LOL. I'm hoping that I can do some serious cardio Sunday and just keep at my home work outs daily and hope it works out.

Do you work on the weekends? Maybe you can get your exercise in then. Don't get discouraged. It sounds like you're doing great so far. You've got a lot on your plate, so itís understandable why you're so tired. Focus on the positive and hang in there!

I've started a new job and with a whole new schedule. Once I get home at 630pm, do homework, cook, get ready for tomorrow it's 10pm and I wanna go to bed. I've been trying for a week to get to the gum at 5am, but I'm so tired when the alarm goes off and I sleep til 6am my normal wake up time. I've been doing good on food, except for yesterday. I had a chicken gyro in wheat pita, not so bad. But for dinner I couldn't pass up eating hot wings and curly fries, I just had a serious craving for hot sauce!!! I haven't done any fitness or excercixe for a week now and I'm afraid I'm going to slip back into my old ways.

I was doing so good. Eating nothing but whole foods, NO SODA or juice (went cold turkey after 5 can a day habit), cut back on sweets and sugar tremendously. My only sugar is fruit now! I felt great getting into jeans from 3 years ago, I lost 15 to 20 lbs, and many inches off my waist. Now I'm just tired. I'm tired of constantly trying to figure out how to get exercise in. I tried walking on my lunch break, came back to work a sweaty mess, so that doesn't work. I try doing home routines like squats, sit-ups, lunges, etc. but a trainer told me its not good enough to see results. Now I'm just feeling defeated. Can anyone give me any advice?! Please?! I'm feeling so broken today.

Currently I consume around 1200 to 1500 calories a day, 75% of it being whole foods, except yesterday..2450 :(
