Hey guys! So I am almost settled in my new place (that has been quite the workout in itself). I feel so good and relieved to be making some progress and starting to feel like I am "home". Change happens and there is nothing I can do about it but take it one day at a time and know that God has the ultimate plan for me! But I did want to thank you all for you warm wishes- they brightened my days more than you know!
I started my 5am workouts and they are suprisingly easier than expected! I have been getting to bed around 10pm (later than Id like but I have been busy) and then waking up at 430am to make it to the gym by 5am. Afterward I go to the hospital cafeteria and get 5 hardboiled eggs and oats. I feel SO happy and refreshed when I start my work day. I was afraid I would feel grumpy but I think that this new morning workout, although I hated the idea of it at first, is going to be a positive thing and is going to really help me balance life. I was so happy when I got home and was already done with my workout and could just unpack**which will eventually be relax and socialize!
Todays workout: shoulders and back! my fave!!!
My new house is amazing! I live with my two good friends and my room is actually the granny suite so it has a mini fridge and I put a conventional toaster oven in there. Yesterday was my first day to give it a try and wow, im impressed. All I did was take a fresh peice of salmon and sprinkle Trader Joes "Everyday Seasoning" on it, popped it in the toaster oven on 350 for 15 minutes and BAM! Amazing... I was thoroughly impressed with myself. Then of course I enjoyed a hearty helping of Trader Joes microwaveable green beans beside that delicious filet of fish! Just something to keep in mind for those of you who need something quick and simple or for you college girls in dorms or suite apartments!
My prayer today is for the babies and families that I am taking care of this weekend. They are so strong and I just hope God continues to watch over them and give them the courage to fight. When I think about some of the sad situations my patients' go through, it makes my life issues seem pretty petty. Also, I pray the Lord please continues to protect our loved ones overseas who are fighting for our country, especially the fathers of some of the babies I am taking care of who are deployed and can not be here!
