Work and healthy life style
Monday, October 08, 2012
Lately I feel like I'm just going through the motions of the day. I'm sure if I could get back to a place where exercise and eating right is my normal then I could be back to making good decisions on auto pilot.
I'm lucky to have a full time job, in the field that I got my degree in, doing something that I love but being a "shift worker" is really making it hard to be healthy. I'm perpetually tired, I would say I should go to the Dr. about it but when getting 5 hours of sleep is a good night there's really no point. I'm sleep deprived. All I do is go to work, spend time on the couch or spend time in bed. I know I make bad food decisions when I'm tired. I also know that I'm the worst that I've ever been. I don't even want to knit or crochet or cook or anything. I'm often home from work less than 8 hours before I have to go back. I'd be find with 12 hour shifts if they were normal times to be awake; not 3 pm to 3 am.
I need to get out of my funk. I was told that I would be able to go all on one shift by the end of this year. That's not going to happen. I need to start making little changes. I'm so tired and frustrated that I don't know where to begin.
I'm going to blog again. Hopefully that can put my head in the game.
