Other ways to prepare and stay on track

Sunday, March 16, 2014

Well... this past week I learned to be a little more prepared when working my 12 hour shifts. I need to pack the whole days menu or I become too hungry and get an annoying headache. I also reached out for help on this blog and sparkteams, and received some much needed support. So, now I have some go to filling snack ideas to use in a pinch. I also figured out that I can freeze some of the items on my nutrition menu like rice and beets. Freezing items will help minimize prep time and cost of wasted food. Anything that makes this process easier is always welcome.

    As I runner I have experimented with home made running jells, but in the end a bit of dried or fresh fruit seems to work as well as anything. Dried from is very condensed and easy to store, might be as good for an RN doing the long distance as for a runner.

    I find planning ahead is really vital to staying on track. If I let myself get too hungry and I don't have healthy food with me then I set myself up for failure big time. I hate it when I self sabotage! You really have a challenge with 12 hour shifts! Keep up the good work.
