This week has defiantly been interesting. As of Wednesday, I have worked five 12 hour shifts in a row. I knew that i needed to be prepared for those few days, if I wanted to stay away from the junk food at work.
I first started off with a crockpot of stew
Look at the sweet potato my aunt grew in her garden!
I also had leftover sausage, potato, and peppers baked in the over, and a rotisserie chicken from Sam’s. I have a few different things each week so I don’t get bored and eat the junk.
So this is how a 12 hour shift of food goes…….
Breakfast: Made at home. This week has been big on protein pancakes.
And they keep me full till 10:30! At that time, I have bacon (made at home), a mini morning glory muffin + almond butter
Around noon I usually have some cashews
2pm Is lunch time in the NICU world. I also have cucumbers, and dates for dessert
5pm another mini glory muffin OR apple with almond butter
8pm A small dinner. Basically something different than lunch. I have to keep it different!
This it is time to pack up for the next day, and hit the hay
Question for you:
What is the longest shift/day you have ever worked?
-I had a rough day in the NICU and didn’t end up leaving till almost 10. (usually leave at 7:30!)
