Life's Minor Adjustments Part 2

Sunday, September 28, 2008

I started working my part time job this week.
Thursday I had training for 4 hours and today I worked 6 hours. There is a lot of walking, lifting and bending involved, which is good exercise.
But, I am wiped out.
After 7 years of staying home, it is going to take a little time getting used to this and then coming home to do my workout afterward plus all my household chores.
I am a morning exerciser, so I am a little anxious that I may have to cut back on my workout days. I really don't want to do that. I get so much from them, including a sense of accomplishment, an energy boost, and a great feeling knowing I am doing something good for my body.
I will see how it goes this week, hopefully I will get over the initial run down feeling and power through. Being a night person, I am going to have to try to go to bed a little earlier than I normally do. That will be a toughie!

Wish me luck!

    I sure do empathize with you. I had a job like that. Remember Montgomery Wards? I had a job that required lots of lifting, carrying, bending, etc. It does wipe you out. But like you said, it is good exercise.

    I think morning exercise is good. People say that the morning workouts help give you the mental acuity you need to have a productive day. But when you’re doing that kind of heavy work on your job, I think the additional morning exercise will continue to wear you out, unless you can have a good breakfast. The old rule of thumb is to eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper. Having a light dinner could help you get to bed early.

    Either way, I’m sure in a little while, your body will adjust to your new schedule and you will be fine.
