I feel like I have been neglecting my blog...and I have.  The transition from third shift to first shift is A LOT harder than I thought it would be.  I did not think I would have a problem at all. Boy was I wrong.  imagine taking your sleep, eating, body, home, family, pets, and workout schedules and completely change and flip them.  CRAZINESS!!!!  I have figured out most of the schedules and am really starting to like it.  There are two areas that I am struggling with and that is dinners and working out.  Luckily my Hubby is great and has been making dinners but this weekend I am going to be a cooking fanatic.  I am hoping to stock the freezer with frozen dinners and crock pot meals.  I am still trying to find time to workout.  I am hoping you guys can shed some light on tips and tricks you use to squeeze in workouts for quick easy dinners. 

Good news is that I am feeling great!!!!  I don't remember the last time I felt this awake and happy.  The other day on my way home from work i caught myself jamming out to the radio.  I thought to myself...."I don't remember the last time I did this.  I must be feeling better!"  I am also down 10 pounds in the last month.  and it is all due to better food choices and more sleep.  I went from getting 4-5 hours a day to 7-8 hours a night.  I am hoping to fit in a workout here and there to assist in my weight loss. 

Sorry I have been gone lately but will try my best to post on a regular basis!

  1. I did that same switch about 6 years ago. It's great to get sleep again and you feel so much better, but it does cause other issues.
    I've been bad about this but I like to get up 30 minutes early and walk on the treadmill. As far as meals, planning makes a big difference for me. I always make a 2 week menu, often make 2 meals at a time and freeze one for later use and the crockpot is my friend!
