Night Shift

I am realizing that although this is only day two, I have a TON of bad habits to break. One of my biggest ones is not eating late at night.  One of the things that I've found hard about this is I work the night shift. It's only a few hours every night it's in the crappiest time frame.  I work 6pm-9pm. I have to leave at 5pm to get to work on time because it's quite far away. So I get to eat dinner at 4pm or 4:30pm. I've been trying to find foods that are filling enough to carry me through the rest of the night.  When I was on my way home from work last night, it would have been so easy for me to stop and get a cheeseburger. I almost did. But I pushed myself to just go home. I had some water and tried to forget about it.  That and drinking soda pop are going to be my two hardest things to get over.

I just keep telling myself that it took me years of bad habits to get this way so it's going to take quite a while to break these habits.

Day Two here I come!
I'm off to start my workout in the garage.


  1. Hell yes!!! Good job!!! That is a great beginning. Passing up the food.... The worst.

    Fruit and veggies make great snacks that you can never get to much of.

  2. I make protein shakes and take them with me. They will hold you off a lot longer and taste great. I use protein, yogurt, apple juice, and frozen blueberries. Helps me a ton. Good luck.

  3. @Parrish Family: I had thought about protein shakes. I'll have to look into that. Thanks for the input! ^_^
