Congrats on getting back on track! As a mom, I have guilt about using my time for me and for my kids. I have decided to share my exercise time with my kids. There is, for example, a yoga DVD for mom and baby. I also do yogalates with my 3 yr old (it doesn't go quite fast enough for her, but she likes the one on one time with mom). I would suggest fitting exercise in before your shift, use the energy to get through work, and you should be able to sleep better, too. Be mindful of your eating; I know working nights can be the worst time for snacking!

emoticon Hi all
I'm a nurse. I work Day/Nights and I pick up evenings. Very busy Mom. I started back to work after my second child, back to shift and I have gain 60 lbs in 3 years. I need to get back on track looking for advice on what others do. When do you sleep, eat (and what) and exercise? Thanks
