    Need some opinions!!

    Here's my problem, I started a new job last week which pays great but what I didn't expect was to be working on a green chain (stacking wood) for 8 hours everyday. Now by the time I get home I am exhausted, I lay on the couch and almost instantly fall asleep. I don't have the energy to get my workouts in and if I do train they turn out to be sh*tty workouts due to my fatigue which in turn makes me bitter!! I'm thinking about quitting, but then I would be loosing money I could use, then on the other hand i hate the job!!
    What do you guys think, What would you do?

    I would wait it out, try to adapt to it. Eventually u will get used to it. Drink alot of water and eat good in the morning. Thats what i do anyway.

    Well if you are fatigued from work then at least you know you are getting a workout, just not a conventional workout. And the bright side is you are getting paid to workout

    wait awhile but if you still dont enjoy it in a couple of months quits. a job you love and look forward to is not a job.

    Not always, I was laid off from a job that i didn't mind and it pays more. They are starting to pick up again and theres a chance that I might go back in a couple months, but it's a MIGHT, not a forsure.

    well of course the pay means a big deal but if you do not enjoy it, or dont feel fulfilled you are going to get burnt out from it eventually. oh well the job you MIGHT get, i wish you all the luck bro!

    keep the job you currently have and start looking for something you like better, if you find something great, if not then you still have a job
