Another Night At Work
Thursday, August 13, 2015
I work nights so I've had to do some tweaking on here. It's a work in progress but I do feel like I'm finally starting to get some things ironed out.
First, exercise. I'm a cna so I'm on my feet a lot at work. However, I know I'm not getting my heart rate up long enough for the walking I do at work to be of much help. I also don't feel like walking when I get off work. Since I'm on night shift I have quite a bit of down time because the residents here are asleep for the most part. So, I started going for 10 minute power walks three times a night. This is night three of trying this. I hope it will help.
Second, my diet. My meals are backwards. Breakfast is before bed. I usually eat this around 6:30 a.m. Then I have supper around 6:30 p.m. Lunch is around 2:30 a.m. I'm try to log everything I eat.
Last, I'm trying to get more involved in the Spark community and participate in groups that I've joined. I have been at this since January and at first I had some success. Lately I've been slipping back into old habits and the weight is starting to creep back on.
I welcome any comments or suggestions.
