ANew Job Brings New Challenges

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Yesterday I found out that I am getting the salary I requested for the job I have been negotiating for. I have worked for this company for 4 + years as an independent contractor and the manager has finally figured out a way to hire me as accounting manager (30 hours a week with benefits).
I love this company and this is a great job, so I am very happy. Also glad that I stood up for myself for the higher pay and it paid off.
The problem is that the new job is 30 hours a week and I have only been working 20 hours a week up until now. I am having a hard time figuring out how to fit in exercise on my work days. Any suggestions?

I try to get some exercise during breaks at work, 10 or 20 mins. Gym a couple nights a week. And something more fun on the weekend. You can do some wall pushups or walk up and down stairs to get the blood moving when you're tired of sitting. Drink lots of water and you will HAVE to take lots of breaks!

    Congrats!

As far as working out goes, it's doable. I work 40-50hrs per week and I get a good workout in at least 3 days a week, sometimes 5 days. I don't know your schedule, but consider getting up 30mins earlier and doing an exercise video before work. Or, workout after work. Power walks or runs, whatever your fitness level is, are great "I don't have a lot of time" workouts.
Good luck!

    Congrats on the new job and better pay. Good for you! I am sure give some time and you'll able to adjust to do exercise.

    Congratulations on your job!!! Good for you for speaking up!!!

As for working out... you may have to work out in the early AM or right after you get home! There are ALL sorts of short workout videos on sparkpeople that might be beneficial... you may have to break your workouts into smaller segments a few days a week!

    Congrats on the new job!

Morning walks/runs? Afternoon workouts? Dancing to music in the evenings? Early morning gym time?

You can do this! I taught for 25 years, so I had a similar kind of schedule, and those were my various options. (If I didn't have a morning class, I'd often do "errands" by walking the entire campus and delivering messages and such - got in a mile per trek that way!)

    That's great. emoticon . Do you get a lunch break long enough to walk? Also I think I've seen exercises on SP for people who are desk bound. Anyway, you are already thinking it out and I'm sure you'll find a way.
