My schedule for work is crazy. I shift between nights & evenings, and between 12 hour shifts & 8 hour shifts. My days off vary greatly...
I found it much easier to diet in the past when my days were "set in stone"...
I work the 6pm to 6am shift twice a week
10pm to 6am once a week
2pm to 10pm once a week.
I have to stay up the night before I go on nights just so I can sleep the next day & be ready to be up all night without getting tired (this happens once or twice in a week) And when I'm getting off a night shift & going onto my day or days off, I stay up after getting off the night shift all day (this happens at least once if not twice in a week), so alot of times I'll be awake for 24-36 hours, and sometimes even as much as 40+ hours straight.
I also work a second job, on the ambulance, where I'm "on call", and never know when the pager is going to go off, so I never know when I'm gonna have to leave or when I'll be back (it happens alot I'd be in the middle of cooking a healthy supper & bam
! I gotta turn off the burners & leave half-cooked food, and I'll be gone for 4-6 hours, and end up hitting a fast food joint because I'm starving by the time its all said & done).
How can I get around this???
Even at my main job, I'm in the medical profession, so I can't always say "well at midnight I'll have lunch" - Who knows what I'll be doing at midnight. It may be 3 or 4 in the morning before I get a chance to sit down & eat, and by then I'll have to pile it all in so I can hurry with my work in time for the next shift to arrive.
I need some ideas!! Please!!!!
