Something has got to give. Perhaps you should skip the gym more often! You can still go on the days you don't work, maybe even stay longer those days, but give yourself permission to skip the gym at least second day work day. If you work and go to the gym on Monday, skip the gym on Tuesday and get to bed earlier.

Look at ways you can get a bit of exercise into your work day on those days. Maybe you can take the stairs instead of the elevator, go for a walk at lunch, walk around the building before work if you arrive early, do some simple strength exercises on your break...

Try it for 2 weeks and see what happens...

Yeah getting a good amount of sleep on my work days just doesn't happen..isn't even possible. I work from 5am-5pm so I have to wake up at 330am. By the time I get home its between 6 and 630pm. Then it's shower, gym, dinner, and sleep by 1030 if I'm lucky.

Hi Stephanie, Welcome!

It sounds to me like your first priority should be to make sure you are getting enough sleep.

Believe it or not not getting enough rest can interfere with weight loss. Here are a couple of SP articles that might interest you:

Hitting the right combintion of food, exercise, and rest can be tricky - particularly when our job or family make demands on us.

Hi everyone, My name is Stephanie. I'm 23 and a deputy in west Florida so I work some long crazy hours at times. It is hard for me to stay motivated because I am always so tired. But I'm tired of letting that slow me down from achieving my goals. I have been working out for YEARS and have not lost any weight. Dieting is hard because of my schedule and cravings are tough for me to ignore. I'm looking forward to setting some goals and doing what I can to stay motivated and finally lose the weight I've been maintaining. I will be the maid of honor in my best friends wedding in January and really would love to lose 20 pounds and look gorgeous in the gown she picked out.
I have a gym membership and have been getting very emotional lately-I feel envy while I am there. Seeing fit and hot people around me while I have not been able to change has made me lose motivation and become a negative person while I am at the gym. I am trying to be more positive and focus on ME rather than everyone else around me.
