I am beginning to understand

Thursday, February 06, 2014

I am beginning to understand why I find it so difficult to put exercise into my days off. 2 things. The amount of activity I do at work age. Before I became a nurse or when I am between jobs it was relativity easy to go for walks or other forms of exercise almost every day. But overall as a nurse I spend almost all of the time on my feet moving. This is very true of my present job. From the moment I get it to just before I leave I am standing/moving. Maybe not aerobically, but moving. I don't take lunch or breaks because there is no time. This is usually 9-10hours. I don't think about it because I too busy thinking about all the things that I have to do. But when I get home, then it hits me. And with age, I don't recover from it like I used to do. So in order to get better balance in life I should think about ways in order to "slow down" a little or better conserve my energy so as not to be so wiped out on my days off.Cheers. Keith

    Hi Keith,
Maybe if you were to purchase or borrow a tracker/pedometer you would have a good idea as to how much exercise you are getting. I suspect it's a LOT! That being said, then your big mission would be to find way to unwind and de-stress at the end of the day or in free time.

I have to agree with TennisJim however, in that I think you really should factor in some break time for proper nourishment/hydration. Going that long without it is not a healthy thing and could very well work against all your hard work!

Take care. emoticon

    Hi, i am not sure if you are looking for advice....skipping meals will not be good for you or beneficial on your healthy lifestyle.
