hiya sparkles im on night 2 of 6, three of which are bank. need to stop picking at food that the other girls bring in
I'm not looking forward to my bank shift tonight ... Hate going to new places and always worry that I'm not helping enough etc!
6 nights!!! God that's nuts! I'm a mess after 4 lol x
lol the most ive done is seven i tend to stick to my own ward so i know what I'm doing but it is good to venture out once in a while to keep your skills up in other areas. went to the gym after my night shift to burn off a few crisps i ate last night, want to go the rest of my nights with only healthy /planned snacking
Well done for going to the gym after a nightshift - I'm too gubbed to do anything lol!
Ach anno what u mean about skills ... I'm sure I will be fine! Just thinking of the money lol
Fab loss xHannahx.
Thank goodness I only have to work 2 nights per month otherwise I would be shattered.
Wee half pound off this week. I'm happy with that as had a bit of a dodgy start to the week.
Bank shift went well last night too
Hello! Im a student nurse and part time agency carer so do alot of nights and placement hours. Finding it so hard to organise myself with food when on shift though :/ x
I work nightshifts.
I take plenty of free and superfree food into munch on so I don't get hungry.
A big lunch box of honey dew, canteloupe melon and pinepple. Any leftover dinner, such as chilli and salad, pasta, quiche, stir fries.
Save my milk for tea, my b choice for alpen lights, punnet of grapes mullerlight and a couple of other bits of fruit. And then just eat all night!
I don't do day shifts very often, but if I do, I take fruit and mullerlight to have on morning break, quiche and salad or soup in flask for lunch, chilli, chickpea dahl loaf or something similar for evening break. Have jp when I get home that the old man puts on for me around 7.30pm so it's ready when I get home.
You just have to get organised - and plan what you will be eating for the day - there's no other way around it! Things that are easy, quick and you can take them to work and don't have to be heated up. Hope that helps xx
I've actually found I don't eat too much on nights anymore but I do need to drink more as I get really bad headaches from not drinking!
Another nurse joining the ranks!!
Im on the community so only do 9-5, at the moment.
We have access to a kitchen and a water dispenser so no excuse for not drinking. I tend to take in eggs, fish, chilli and rice or curry and rice and heat the up. I have loads of fruit and yogurt or i have a tub of quark with sweetener and a choc option.
