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.

    Thanks ladies! I will also try adding squats. At this point I'm willing to try anything.

    I am a night worker in the health setting too. I love the 10 minute power walk idea. It is very hard to work out after work. Agreed on that one! I like to incorporate things like squats here and there. Making sure I do at leas 10 min/day of exercise
