Taking Care of ME

I keep coming back to Raw Food Talk, even though I have struggled with becoming a Raw Foodist since I found this wonderful website last fall 2007. I still try the recipes, I have Alissa's book and I love Smoothies! I love fruits and veggies, seeds and nuits. So what is the problem?
I have been working the nightshift since October and I hate it! I just don't eat right on this shift. Sometimes, I'm so tired I can't eat, not even the vender junk looks good. I just don't feel good since I went to nighshift, at 56 I guess my body is telling me to get back to a day schedule.
Guess what! I go back to 7am to 7pm starting next Monday!!!! Yippee!!!
I put in my transfer to days and few weeks ago and also talked with my unit manager and it finally happened!
I worked days at my facility from Feb 2007 to October 2007 and then was talked into going on nights-they needed someone with experience with Altzheimer patients on the night shift and I caved and went to nights. Well I did enjoy the CNA's I worked with, great team, and the quiet-well sometimes it is quiet, after all this is an Altzheimer's unit. Yet the lack of sleep or sleeping too much and my nights off, plus messed up appetite or cravings for junk, plus way too coffee to keep awake finally got to me!
I am so looking forward to next Monday! I still have to work tonight, tomorrow and Thursday on the night shift then I get Fri, Sat, and Sun off, then back to Days!!!
I seriously want to take care of ME! I want to live a long, healthy, enjoyable life with my wonderful, gentle, loving husband. I know Raw is the way to go. But first I have to work on my cravings, coffee addiction, love of potato chips addiction, etc. I really want to do this and Spring is not far off, that means soon yummy fresh produce will be available and not too far off, yummy Watermelons, honeydews and cantaloupe! I have a feeling this Spring and Summer will be very special and filled with promise.
