Maybe you can schedule some you time in there specifically for you to exercise. Sounds like you live a hectic life and a little time to yourself doing something good for yourself would help with the craziness. Once your staff was used to you not being there it wouldn't be an issue. You could even treat yourself to other good things during that time.

There you are Nancey! Glad you're still trying to master this monster. Maybe you could try taking two 10 or 15 min. breaks during the workday to walk outside, or use the treadmill - YOU call the shots - so make it happen! :hi:

You do have long work hours. For me working out in the morning is the best. For you especially with the long day you are having. Maybe schedule in 4 days to workout and don't make them long workouts. Just 30 minutes until you get used to it. Maybe you work out on the 3 days you have off and only 1 time on your work days. Maybe that will be less overwhelming. Once you can fit in the smaller workouts maybe you can increase from there once you feel you can.
It takes a little time to adjust to waking up a little earlier but it might help with the stress.

For eating I know it is hard when you are so crazy busy. Keep your meals simple so it does not overwhelm you to prepare. I will make a double batch of a healthy meal and bring it a few days but I don't mind eating the same thing for a couple of day.

We have a work frig and I keep Cottage cheese, fruit, greek yogurt and hummus and vegies on had all the time. That way I don't have to pack it everyday. I am not sure if you have a work frig or not. Lunches I usually bring left overs.

Don't forget lack of sleep affects our eating patterns and I know for me it kicks up cravings.
I think it's a great idea about the treadmill. Well, about the sweaty part, too bad there isn't a wash room. Another option is to keep a fan on yourself while you walk. I used to do that when my old company had a gym in the bldg. That way I still got my walk in but I kept cool and not as sweaty. But you can bring stuff with you to freshen up.
