Sounds like you are doing what you can Celest...it's tough when our bodies aren't cooperating with our spirits! Keep on sparking!

I have suffered adrenal exhaustion for the past 5months and as a result have not done any exercise other than my eyelashes going up and down before passing clean out. But its over now and I guess I'd better hop on my exercise bicycle before it and I rusts completely.

I get to the gym at 5am and work out until 6am so I can get to work on time for my 12+ hour day. That way I get it in before work. There's no way I'm doing anything other than dinner and tv once I get home!! Then on my days off I let myself sleep a little later and do it when I first get up and spend longer doing strength training.

I'm looking forward to what everyone else will have to say here. I just started looking at the workouts Don just mentioned, and they are great. I used to run 2-3 flights of stairs between patients or sometimes when I had a "no-show". We have no stairs where I am now. I've tried to set aside some time in the mornings, but often I have those really busy days with lots of follow up paperwork afterward, or those nights with uncooperative children - always some kind of suprise going on and then, trying to balance that with proper sleep - oh boy. I just tried the abdominal routine last week during lunch. It wasn't bad.

Oooh, this is something that I've had trouble with when I'm working. After constantly being on my feet for 12+ hrs I DON'T want to do ANYTHING when I get home.

I hate getting up in the morning. So I went straight from work to the gym or changed my clothes before leaving the hospital & went somewhere to walk or hike. If I went home first, FORGET IT! emoticon I was on that sofa w/a beer & ordering take-out!

I also like Don's idea of doing the short workouts that are available on SP. Some are 15 min, some are 30 min - they use little to no equipment & require very little space.

HTH - let us know what works for you. I'm always interested in finding new ways to work in exercise.

Stay calm and carry on.

i agree with Don if you can get even 1/2 hr first thing in the morning you will have a great head start for the day no matter how long it is.......
it is difficult to fit in the exercise at the end of the day because you are already so spent with nothing left............give it a try and see how it goes....all the best....blessings and hugs................lita

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

It's tough when work demands are so challenging...I like getting my treadmill time in first thing when waking up. Then I don't have to worry about finding time. There are workouts, short ones, posted here at SparkPeople for doing at work. It all helps! Check out the fitness section.

I find myself in this situation at least every 4 months or so.... Because my working hours are census-based, I will have some weeks where I work maybe 30 hrs and then the very next week working 50+ hrs (including all weekend). So I'm very committed to my weekly 6 days/wk fitness plan when I'm working less, but when I'm working 12+ hrs a day, I cannot seem to force myself to do anything extra besides work. How does everyone else manage working hours and fitness time?
