I am a travel therapist. I get a contract to work in different nursing homes for 13 week assignments. When I renewed my dedication to getting healthier and losing weight, it was at the beginning of a new work assignment. I was fortunate that it was a job close to home. This allowed me to be home in time for dinner and allowed me time to work out. Starting tomorrow I will have a new assignment in a different town. This will be almost a 2 hour drive to work and and 2 hrs back home. This most definitely change my daily routine, but what will it mean to my healthy lifestyle?
Will I still have time to work out during the week?
Will I have the energy to work out?
Will I be forced to eat dinner on the way home from FF?
Will I snack in the car on the way home and eat a regular meal later in the evening?
I use to drink lots of water on my drive to and from work. Now I will be traveling country roads with no where to stop and tinkle (lol). Will I still be able to consume 6 or more glasses of water a day?
I have already been trying to prepare. Keeping a case of water, protein shakes, and protein bars in the car for traveling. I would really like to avoid FF if all possible. I plan on trying to work out in the evenings when I get home. I thought about packing dinner with my lunch and then just eating dinner at work right before I leave. These are all ideas I'm starting with to try and maintain my health and weight loss efforts. I realize I will have to continue to adapt until I get a system that will work for me. But just wondering...anyone else have any suggestions?
