I want to write today about how the job as carer or nurse type roles, make it really difficult to plan your diet and provide yourself with proper nutrition. Typically shifts are twelve hours, and its simpler to have two staff to rota for every 24 hours of continuous care needed, than to make shifts more human.
I remember a team leader who said ‘does anyone ever just go to the supermarket, buy a whole cake, and eat it in their car?’
Yes there was evidence of some binge eating, or emotional and boredom eating, by the other care workers I was alongside.
I’ve been going to the gym again and its been going well for me.
I’m hoping to reset my body into some better habits.
