Re-evaluating my life and goals.

Monday, August 16, 2010

Took a long break from SP. It just started feeling like a chore that I had to do. In January my work hours change and now I work midnights. Work overtime most mornings and now the rumor is 6 days a week. Haven't fully adjusted yet and now they are adding more hours. I feel bad about complaining about my job when so many people are out of work. But it is a struggle to work these hours and try to eat healthy and get a work out in too.

On top of all that I just sent my baby off to college. ( He plays on the football team so they had to check in 3 wks earlier then the rest of the students). I am really missing him. We chat on facebook almost daily but he doesn't have much free time. They are really working him. He probably won't be able to come home until Thanksgiving.

I'll be done with my "pity party " for now. Just wanted to vent a little, it might help.

    I tried working the midnight shift and hated it. It may help to get in your workout before you go home and go to bed. Once I went to bed, I was not interested in anything once I woke up.

    Stay focused and you will make it work.

    I used to work nights for 5yrs and also found it very hard to eat properly. It used to seem like an extra meal a day. Not to mention feeling like the walking dead! It took awhile but I did eventually develop a schedule. Don't give up! It will get better.
