I did well yesterday with my eating, got in my exercise, all good.

Today I woke up with the alarm going off....which had been going off for quite some time. I rush through getting ready for work, and took off without packing my lunch. So although I ate a healthy but quick breakfast, I totally missed lunch and any snacks through the work day. This is something I've struggled with in the past.

I just need to PLAN to avoid the issue. Tonight I packed a lunch and a healthy snack, and both are in the frig to take with me in the morning. So as long as I don't forget to grab them when I leave the house, that particular problem will be averted.

I've been thinking what other planning I can do. I work three 12 1/2 hour shifts and one 4-hr shift during the week, so I'm thinking I will cook on one of my days off and freeze single servings of a few foods to make meal planning easier. Now's the perfect time to try some of those spark recipes! I've also found a lot of recipes that look both tasty and healthy in various places, I plan to try at least one new recipe each week. Also to get a nice BIG water bottle to take with me to work. So after a long shift, all I'll need to worry about is getting in my exercise and making sure my food for the next day is ready to pop into the cooler.

    I work long shifts also and I cook, portion and freeze meals. Sounds like you have everything on track. Have a wonderful weekend!
