Work hour changing again.

Sunday, January 24, 2010

Last year I was happy and doing well. I was working 6am to 2:30pm. The first of the year my hours changed to 7pm to 3:30 am. That just isn't working. We rush to get a healthy supper on the table by 5 so I can leave for work by 6. I don't know when to exercise, I don't know how to track my food. I'm not always tired when I get home so I turn on the t.v. and eat.

So starting saturday I will change my hours again. I will be starting at 9:45 pm to 6:15 am. I have to learn to adjust to these hours. I have to accept that this is the new reality in my life. I can no longer work day hours. I still don't know when I will exercise or how to track my food intake.

How do I adjust? I know other people work these hours, when do they exercise? How do I track my food?

    the adjustment is lessened with more planning. When you have some idle time think how you can make your life less hurried and absolutely, positively make time for yourself. I've gotten up at an hour early the past 2 days to walk before work. I prepare my meals for 3 days in a row. My very supportive wife cooks on the weekends for several meals during the week. Good Luck and be good to yourself you deserve it. emoticon

    I used to work overnights a lot but wasn't as concerned with working out then. I would say if you can't sleep when you get home, work out then. Leave the before work and regular supper hour for your family time. Have what you would normally eat for dinner then. Eat a breakfast or lunch at work and the 3rd meal when you get home. The workout could make you sleep better. There are some exercises aimed at relaxing you before bed. If you have time before work when it doesn't interfere with family, you could work out then.

    Hope these hours work for you! It is hard getting used to a new schedule.
