My Biggest struggle...

I work graveyards every other week. I find it hard to eat enough or eat right when I am working nights. Nothing sounds good except for the things I really shouldn't be eating. I need to figure out a meal plan that is taste and fun. Does anyone have any ideas? I also am starting the Jilian Micheals 30 shred tomorrow. So hopefully that will help. Has anyone tried this work out?

Hi there I did allready send a post well here we go again
I think your rotateing schedule is gonna be a little different to make a plan You may have to make 2 plans one for each week

for the graveyard shift my DH is one one of those
I pack him a lunch that he can have during the night
and we have dinner together around noon time
he goes to bed around 2 ish wakes at 10;30 to get ready and begin his comute
I hope this helps some with the grave yard shift anyway
I usually pack him a sandwich some carrot sticks and bell pepper strips a piece of fruit
Hugs Judy:)

I work the grave yard shift as well and I eat the same as I do during that shift as I would during the day. It's about what you put in your mouth when you do eat. Just making better choices.

I am actually pretty lucky. I found out that two of my night coworkers are on weight watchers now. I think it is easier if you have others around you dieting as well.

I tried the 30 shred today and it kicked my butt! I am in love with this work out program. Now I just need to keep with it.

Thank you all!
