Back to start over

Sunday, September 23, 2012

Since starting my new job--mainly driving all day far distances,eating a lot of drive through I have gained 28 pounds! In 5 months! My legs are swollen all the time now. I feel like complete crap.
It is so hard to get back into a routine of healthy eating. Junk food is very much an addiction!
I decided today,right now I am going to give it another go to kick this addiction cold turkey.

I have to relearn how to eat again. I have to start packing healthy snacks in a cooler for the car. And fit it some type of workout somewhere. I went from working 3 nights a week 12 hr shifts in a hospital. To working 5 (sometimes 6-7) days a week as a home infusion RN and the distances I drive are incredible--I can drive 300 miles plus in one day some days. I am barely ever home,and when I am there is still calls to make and paperwork to do. I love the job very much. I have a lot of autonomy in this field but its created an unorganized enviroment as far as my weightloss and thrown me off course. I did not prepare myself right. So this is a vow to myself to get this right! I deserve this!

    I have done home health as well.. It was essential for me to pack food/water and keep in the car. Yes I drove for miles...but having the autonomy was worth it! You might wanna seek out some "perfect spots" where you can stop for a while and regroup - do some short walks, stretches etc... Best of LucK!! emoticon

    You can do this...it is all about the choices you make. Keep a cooler full of water and healthy foods for the road. One day at a time, one meal at a time you can do it. Remember total deprivation will not woek in the long haul so figure out what your triggers are and keep those items limited. Treat yourself kindly. You can do it,
