work weekends ruin my diet - help
Friday, August 09, 2019
My weekend shifts are the hardest time for me as far as stress eating. I work every other weekend 10 hours on Saturday and 10 hours on Sunday. Over the years, this weekend shift has been the downfall of more diets than I can count. They stress me out for numerous reasons: transportation is an issue (I take the bus which runs much less frequently on the weekends), there are snacks and food always around which I am allowed to partake in, I'm alone for most of my shift (no witnesses), the longer hours make me tired which makes me want to grab sugar for energy, having the bulk of the responsibility on my weekend shifts stresses me out which also makes me want to snack, it's just a perfect storm for ruined intentions and I give in almost every time no matter how much I prepare or think I prepare. It just all goes out the window somehow and I don't know what to do about it. My work weekend is coming up again and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or tips for getting through the long anxious hours when I have every opportunity to eat junk.
