I work 12 hour night shifts on varying nights throughout the week. I added my own "meal times" on my nutrition page and track Midnight to Midnight every day of the week, even when I am off. This has finally been my key to losing weight! Please recommend this to anyone who works odd hours!
You may view my nutrition plan at DeliverBabiesRN to see how I track for my wacky schedule.
When we plan to have dinner at a restaurant, I get a copy of the menu, select the dish I will order, and include it in my meal planning. In that way I can comfortably order and eat a meal with my family without the guilt or fear that I'm ruining my day. Many menus are available online, and it's worth it to take the time to decide the dish you would want and how it would play into your day's nutrition plan.
Tomorrow is my daughter's birthday and we're taking her to dinner. I'm ready to enjoy my meal. 4
So often we give up for not being perfect. If you do something 51% of the time whether it be stick to your nutrition plan, stick to your exercise plan, etc....you have succeeded because 51% of the time is a majority of the time!279
