Shift work and home workout

I’m not sure why, but I just can’t seem to shake out of this funk. I think it might be the gloomy weather and the fact that I just want to go outside!!!

Anyway, I wanted to pass along this article I was sent. It talks about shift work, not only working 12 hours, but always working the night shift. I know a lot of my friends work this shift 🙂 It talks about how working “shift work” can change your body, and what we can do help our body stay in a good rhythm (I don’t work the night shift, but I can still take the advice, especially on getting enough sleep!)



This morning Andrew was suppose to have a friend over, I sent a text to push back the time so I could head to the gym. My gym’s child care times drive me INSANE!  The times are Saturday 8-12 and nothing on Sunday. THATS. IT. I know this might not be a big deal to some (without kids, with a spouse, with older kiddos) but its a big deal here. Basically on Sundays, I can’t workout unless Andrew is at a friends, at my parents (I already ask them a ton!), or with his dad. So if the stars align, I will be at the gym on Sundays haha

I found this on pinterest, and I am going to try this tomorrow


The rest of the day, I am going to try and lift my spirits. I’m just not feeling like myself.

(UPDATE: just realized I didn’t take my vitamin D yesterday, I wonder if thats what my deal was yesterday and today)

Question for you:

How do you fit in workouts?

What is your favorite at home workout?

  1. Your gym only has childcare on Saturdays? That’s crazy… nothing on any other day of the week? Weird. I don’t think ours has Sunday either though but it’s cheap. I think it’s like $2 a visit for the child, lol. My husband worked night shift for years and it really messed up his system, even 6 months after he left that job he was still having trouble sleeping at night and getting up. It’s been almost a year now and he’s finally getting his body’s clock reset to a normal 8-5 job schedule. I’m sure the 12 hour shifts for nurses are pretty similar too.
