Great advice here. I don't go to a gym either.. There are great work out CD's you can do at home with just as a good work out. Good luck on your new job.. Once you get a routine going it will get easier...

Usually training for a new job is exhausting. It will get easier. I promise! And maybe you haven't had a chance to use the gym this week and it may take a little time to get a schedule set up but I agree that, in the mean way, start building habits that keep you more active throughout the day. Can you take a walk during lunch? Do take the stairs at every opportunity.

And, as always, nutrition is much more important that exercise. Do make sure you are making wise food choices, tracking every morsel you pop into your mouth, and measure your portions. You can do this.

Congrats on the new job. emoticon It will get better.

I don't like going to the gym so do all of my workouts at home. I bought a used ski machine from the classifieds and use it regularly. I also do the Spark videos, a couple of aerobics videos and jog on a mini trampoline. I have 5 lb hand weights and use those too.

Enlist the kids and hubby to do some of the things that they can do so that you have time to workout. Even 10 or 15 minutes jogging on the trampoline is beneficial.

I also downloaded a free pedometer app to my cell phone. It's a bit addictive trying to get to 10K steps a day.

When you can afford it, buy your own equipment and workout at home. That's what I did and I love it.

Thanks for the advice. There are stairs at work, I think walking up and down them during lunch would be a great way to burn calories.

It sounds like your days are pretty full-on. Congratulations on your new job :-)

A lot of people think that they have to go to a gym for exercise and do an hour's work-out at a time. For a lot of people this is totally unrealistic for a variety of reasons, and for you the time factor seems to be the reason. Fortunately there are lots of ways to get the exercise in without over-extending yourself.

1. Park the car or get off the bus a little bit further away than you would normally. IF you are close enough, walk to work when possible, or buy a bicycle.

2. Go for a brisk walk at lunch time.

3. Have more toilet and water cooler stops than you would normally need.

4. Do some 5 minute roll-downs and stretches at work or at home.

5. Put your laundry and groceries away one at a time. This is my main source of exercise, and it really can give you a walking work-out.

6. Dance while you vacuum.

7. How old are your children? Are they able to help to share the work-load at home - even a 5yr old can make their bed and set the table. That can give you a bit more down-time for relaxation which is also vitally important.

I hope that these will give you some more ideas for how you can tweak things to work for you.

Good luck,
Kris

What a week! I started a new job in which training was about 10 hours a day. I am so exhausted! I haven't been to the gym all week and I am terrified that I will not have time. I am a mother of three and wife to a disabled man. My life can get kinda crazy. I need to figure out a routine. I have decided to change my way of living and I want to continue to take care of myself. Im still eating healthy but I know that finding time to work out is important as well. I need some advice fellow spark lovers!
