    Staying Motivated When Exhausted From Full Time Job

    Hello,

    I'm pretty new to this forum. I've lurked for a while but just recently created an account. I've been trying to get more into health and fitness since I know that I need a lifestyle change. I work at an office for 8 hrs every day and I think it's starting to have its toll on me. You would think that sitting at a desk all day would make me want to move around and exercise when I get off work, but it seems to have the opposite effect. I just feel drained and sluggish. I want to work out when I'm off work, but I just always seem to want to enjoy my time off the clock.

    How do you guys stay motivated to work out when you come home after being at work all day?

    Step 1: Working out is fun, so it is "enjoying your time off". I would love to be able to excercise on the days I take off to reacover nd grow.

    Step 2: If you don't have the energy or discipline to workout after work, get up early when your fresh and workout before work.

    If you can't do either...well, nobody can do this but you.

    Good luck.

    I'll second the early workout suggestion. I honestly don't notice a difference between how tired I am after work when I workout in the morning vs when I don't. Soreness sure, but I'm more then ok with that. It means you have to get up earlier, but the benefits for me have gone beyond my workouts. The whole routine builds a ton of momentum for the day and I feel like I'm a few strides ahead of everyone when I get into work.

    You realize that MOST people, including those who are fit, have full time jobs?

    Like the man said, if you don't want to do it nobody can make you.

    I find that working out early helps, but ultimately you have to decide each day to be fit... or not.

    Somebody told me before to work smart and not hard on my day job so I won't lose any interest with the things I do outside of work. Any job out there is physically and mentally draining but a proper mindset can help lessen those burden.

    I feel you on being drained. I work merchandising at Costco (stocking) from 3am to 12pm 5 days a week and it takes a toll. I go to school 6 hours a day the other two days a week. What drives me regardless of my energy levels is knowing that if I stick to a plan I will get results. I train everyday after work at 1pm and on school days early in the morning or rest. If you have the will, you will find a way.

    I think it's quite common to struggle starting to work out. People are lazy. When I had an injury, I wanted to go so badly, but once I was good to go again I had to force myself. After 1 week I was again fully motivated. Just get started, once your'e into it and it's a routine you will love it.

    i try not to eat too much carbs, more on good greens and nice tasting food. it helps me less exhausted by the time i am home.
    then do something light stuff for only 30 minutes. on days when i am truly exhausted, i do only 10 minutes.
    as long as i do at least 10 minutes, i reward myself to go rest.
    no tv though.
    just chilling

    Work out before hand, man. Wake up earlier and get the gym in before you go to work. The first 3-4 hours of your day are always the most productive, so you want them for yourself (not for your boss).
