Fell off the diet bandwagon
August 5, 2017 7:26pm CST
I have had a great 6+ months of working out and eating rigt. These past couple of days I have totally lost motivation, am exhausted and seemingly CONSTANTLY hungry! I did notice after getting back from vacation the scale showed me 2 pounds heavier. Haha. I wonder if my exhaustion could be related to cutting back on caffeine (am on day 6 of no diet sodas or energy drinks) or just in general from transitioning back into working the night shift. Either way...Ill be forcing myself to go to the gym tomorrow (havent been in 3 days, thats quite bad for me!) And maybe that will give me some energy? Any words of wisdom are more than welcome!

Depending upon the amount of caffeine you were consuming daily it would affect you by making you a bit tired. But more important is your shift change. Our bodies get used to routines and by changing shifts you've changed your body clock. That would explain your current exhaustion. The overeating is a mental thing brought on by your change in routine. You need to reestablish a healthy routine which looks like you are determined to do now. Best of luck Maezee!

Thanks for your insight! I usually switch around my schedule anyway on weekends to a day time schedule and have been doing so for 7 months. So that is why I am suspicious now... lol. Thanks for your help. I know once I get into the routine again Ill be golden.
