Hi, how is everybody?
So I just recently started a construction job, it can be (and is) physically intensive most of the time.
I am not (nor have I really ever been) a very physical in my adult life. Most of my jobs have been customer service or desk jobs. My most recent job prior was in production lifting 5 to 15 lb pieces of glass all day (possibly heavier at times) but I really only had to use my arms and was only for a few months.
3 months in between jobs, with no activity whatsoever in between.
This construction job has me working everything. The first week wasn’t too terrible, second week okay I guess, but this past week I can tell I am not doing something or multiple things right.
I drink tons of caffeine to have energy and many bottles of water throughout the day for what I lose. Got a case of LIFE WTR for the electrolytes.
My diet isn’t the best don’t eat too much at lunch but try to eat as much as I can when I get home. Money is an issue here. Even still, if I eat a bunch of food sometimes I can’t get full.
I ride a bike 2 miles or so to and from. The hills don’t help my situation but I enjoy it somehow even when I’m exhausted.
All I want to do is sleep as well. I never have enough sleep.
I am not fat about 6’1 180lb or so. I am building my arms and back and chest its very noticeable even after a couple weeks.
I’m new to all of this, I just would like some energy, be healthier and more fit.
Any suggestions? Open to criticism.
