I'm really struggling with how I'm going to make time to get work outs in with my new job. I started this week as the special ed campus coordinator and collaborative teacher at my new school. The kids don't start until the 27th, but I already have a TON of work to do. Two of the teachers on my team are out until the end of September, so I'm having to do their schedules, paperwork and guide their instructional assistants and subs, along with doing my own job. I've also been asked to be part of PTA which means late nights at least 4 nights a month, not related to my job in particular. I'm a total workaholic, so when I left work at 4:30 yesterday (for my 45 minute drive home) I actually felt bad because I was leaving 'early'. I'm off campus for the next two days at meetings, so that's time that I'm unable to get things done.
Fitting in workouts is going to be extremely difficult with this schedule. As I've said before, I already get up at 5 just to get to work by 7:30. Once school starts I will have to get up at 4:30 so I can get there by 7. My new position requires a lot of after school meetings and TONS of planning, so I don't expect to leave work until 5:30 or 6 each day, at the earliest. Then I have a 45 minute drive home, and that's if traffic isn't too bad. I'm already exhausted, it's only Wednesday morning, and the students haven't started yet. How on earth am I going to fit in workouts?! I know I have the weekends, and I have time planned there to going walking/running but that's only 2 days a week. Anyone have any suggestions? Oh, and no, I don't have time during my lunch or any breaks to do anything - I'm lucky if I get 30 full minutes to eat! Any suggestions are welcomed!
