Welcome! This is a great place for support. Good luck with settling in with your new routine.

Try the best you can to eat healthy and get good sleep at the very least I guess having a job is a good thing.. Congrats, but hope you can get things sorted out soon..

Hi, new schedules make many new challenges. I've found this out the hard way. Give yourself some time to settle into the new routine, while doing what you can as you can with exercise. I recently adjusted my schedule at work to start 30 minutes earlier. It does not sound like a lot, but it threw my exercise schedule into a tailspin as I normally used that 30 minutes as my exercise time.
Now that I'm into the 3rd week I'm finally getting a new routine in place. It's becoming easier to get up 15 - 30 minutes earlier to do a longer workout in before work. Morning exercise works best for me, but it's challenging getting out of bed to do it
Good luck with establishing your new exercise routine. I hope you are making that a priority. Changing jobs, any disruption of routine, can be stressful. Both healthy eating and exercise can suffer, just when you need your health most. Spark has some excellent suggestions for workouts you can do on the job, at your desk if you work in desk job. These rev your metabolism while taking little time. They don't take the place of a stress relieving full workout, but can help.

Hi. I am new here. I've had RA for almost eight years and have Sjogren's too. I've reached a plateau and have 25 more lbs to go. I manage most days, my main problem is stress. I am hoping I can get back to a regular exercise routine this week. Its hard because I recently started a new job (unexpectedly) and I can't seem to balance everything.
