Welcome! You made the right choice to come here. I have found Spark to be very motivating. I have personally found the fitness clips to be very helpful.

It sure is. It seems that we are focused on caring for others and are always giving, thus forgetting about ourselves. I know that when I was working night shift I often skipped sleep to attend the kids activities.

Welcome to the team!!! You've come to the right place for support to get yourself healthy. Isn't it weird how nurses are often the worst when it comes to taking care of themselves?

Hi I have been a nurse for 29 years. All has been in OB or PEDS. I worked 15 years in OB, 5 years in pediatric home care, 1 year in an OB/GYN office,5 years in NICU, Now 2 years as a school nurse. During my hospital and home care I have managed to pack on over 100 excess pounds. Most of it was to battle the fatigue from rotating shifts and the many years of night shift. Two and a half years ago I had a cardiac cath and ended up with two stents and some angioplasty. All this stemmed from an irregular heart beat, no pain. Needless to say I must change my lifestyle.
