My favorite time of the day is when I can get into bed, wrap my warm fleece blanket around me like a cocoon, and read until I doze off. My least favorite part of the day is throwing back the warm blankets and walking around the first 5 minutes.
This morning’s to do: 3 mile pace run!
Today’s run was awesome! Days like this I love pushing myself and seeing results. My average pace came to 8:42. Not sure what got into me at mile 3!
I’ve been running about 45 minutes later in the mornings since it’s now dark till about 6 am when the light just starts to peek through.
My alarm is set for 5:20 so I can do things such as start the coffee process, pack my lunch, pick out my work clothes, etc. This saves me time since I finish with my runs at 7. By the time I shower, eat breakfast, blow dry my crazy thick hair, put on minimal make-up, and get dressed, it’s 8:15 and I must get out the door.
I forgot to mention how my Tuesday started! I had to take a small detour in our employee parking lot since a 1991 Astro mini van plowed into a Mercedes SUV. Dang, what a way to start the work day.
Wednesday started off with a bang as well-80′s bangs! The respiratory therapist brought in her 1987 wedding pictures since it was her 25th wedding anniversary. She looked good for being the 80′s. Her bridesmaids were a little more stereotypical 80′s looking.
After cardiac rehab, I tore into this darn peach.
I had forgotten it 3 times already that morning! I forgot it on my kitchen counter, in my car at cardiac rehab, and then in my car at my main office (peaches don’t hold up well in a car during August). Eating it was the only way to stop forgetting it.
My day was steadily busy to the point where the day flies by but isn’t overwhelming. Perfect!
There was a luncheon for an ORIGIN presentation. Chili’s was brought in for the food; I had 2 tortillas filled with sautéed onions and peppers, a sprinkle of cheese, and a good dose of guacamole. The presentation was about a new study that took more aggressive care to newly diagnosed diabetes and pre-diabetes. Insulin glargine (Lantus) was used to target am fasting blood sugars of 95 and lower (wow). The goal was to reduced CAD death.
After the presentation my 12:45 patient didn’t show so I took full advantage of finishing my meal rounds (“how’s your food quality/temp/service?”). I needed only 4 more! At this time last month I needed all 20-progress! While doing the meal rounds, I ended up adding a supplement and snacks for 2 patients.
I was given more artwork.
And was given cherry tomatoes!
These are from a nurse’s garden. I think I’m going to use them for a galette tonight. I’m back and forth on the galette. Dinner dilemma.
Beer fest has completely taken over my boyfriend’s life, so I would be on my own for the night. When this happens, I tend to relax and push dinner off. At least last night I did the arm and ab portion of Shred level 2 before relaxing and pushing dinner off.
Once dinner finally happened I realized I was missing bread crumbs for the fish so I quickly switched salmon plans. I for real go through eatliverun‘s recipe archive like no other. The girl is good. Sweet and spicy glazed salmon it was!
Purple potatoes! I am so obsessed with these! This was a great dinner for one and will be repeated for lunch today. Don’t let dinner for one mean you can’t have a fabulous dinner.
And what does a 25 year-old do when they have a night to themselves? Grab a warm blanket and read.
Today: tell management that my bedroom carpet is mysteriously wet, finalize training plans (I’ll try to share this), work, and…
Tell my sister “Happy Birthday!”
I won’t reveal her age.
