I work 12 hr night shifts. I do have to plan for the first night of a stretch because I'm up too long. Other than the first night I do ok. Planning is necessary.

When I worked shifts, I did not have a problem either.

I did my regular routine, but in different hours.

My husband does shift work, but he hasn't mentioned any difficulty with a regular eating routine.

Exactly! Between getting sleep, attempting to get your exercise in and eating right it can be more taxing. I have been really diligent to pack my lunch and plan my meals for the week.

I feel your pain. Although I don't work shift work, I have a job that can have irregular hours at times. For the last 8 months or so I've averaged 6 10 hour days a week and there was a string of 30 consecutive days I worked 7 10's during the summer. Hard to get motivated for exercise when you are tired on your feet and hitting the drive thru window on your way home is so easy.

Does anyone else work shift work and find it hard to find a balance with finding an eating schedule?
