Two quick announcements before tonight’s post!
1) Don’t forget to enter my FRS giveaway! It’s open until noon on Thursday, and the winner will receive $30 in FRS product.
2) The Pear Sports promo code I shared a few weeks ago has been extended. You can save 30% on the Pear mobile system by using the code “FitFluential” through September 30th. (Seriously, I love mine!)
I haven’t touched on my new job much, so I thought I’d take tonight’s post to share some of the ways my “day to day” has changed since leaving teaching and entering the “business world.” (<— I feel goofy saying that!)
#1 – I get to “sleep in.”
I set tons of alarms.
When I was teaching, I was up around 5:00AM every day. Now, I’m able to get an extra half hour/45 minutes. Unfortunately, this just means I’m staying up later at night… gotta change that!
#2 – I’ve had to alter my workout schedule.
Still making it to BodyPump!
I’ve gone from leaving work at 3:00PM to not heading out ‘till 4:30PM. I couldn’t make a few of my favorite group exercise classes, but then my gym ending up taking them off the schedule anyway. At least now I don’t feeling like I’m missing out!
I still usually make it to classes on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, it just requires a little more rushing around.
I’ve also added a rest day during the week. It gives me a chance to “take a breath” and catch up on things around the house.
#3 – I’ve needed to use more willpower.
Haven’t broken out the candy corn this year… yet!
Two words – candy. dish. I have a candy dish out on my desk (for others!) and it’s sometimes always difficult not to steal a piece (or 5). I actually plan on doing an entire post dedicated to healthy living in an office, so look for that sometime soon!
#4 – I’m less stressed.
Even though my days still feel busy, it’s such a relief to not be bogged down with essay grading, lesson planning, and grad work. My nights and weekends are mine!
Overall, the changes have been positive, with the exception of #3. I mean, having willpower is a good thing, but I can’t say I’ve mastered it quite yet!
Have you had to make any changes/adjustments lately?
What time do you wake up in the morning?
