I have a new baby update right now—> Weeks 23 & 24!
It was 75 degrees when I started my run (which is crazy hot for me) but luckily my sister was more than happy to take a million walk breaks along the way of our normal run loop.
It was Brooke’s last day of soccer camp with the head coach and players of the BYU women’s soccer team… Brooke received a ton of great instruction and she is excited to be on a team this fall (if Utah stays in the yellow or green phase).
She somehow convinces me to always share my peaches with her.
Next up: A bike ride with the crew.
We decided we needed to bike to go get breakfast for lunch and it was an excellent decision.
Yep, we were in jackets because Utah is unpredictable and it was cold and rainy suddenly.
I had the omelette and it HIT THE SPOT.
And then we rode back!
I took a nap and for dinner I had a sticky finger salad.
Brooke made brownies… her current baking hobby is really nice:)
The other day I got this question from Melly so I asked Andrew to answer and I’d love to hear what works for you guys!
Those are really good questions! So I’m trying to figure this out as well, but what I have found that works best for me is to really focus on the days that I have off. Right now I am putting in 3 really solid workouts a week and I’m focusing on those. The pandemic has me working mandatory overtime shifts so 3 days of exercise per week seems like all I can do. I agree, getting in a workout after 12-13 hours of working is really hard. If I am trying to get an extra run above the days I don’t work I have found that if I get up a little earlier and get in 20-30 minute small run/workout in before work, I am more awake and I don’t dread it like I would do after a shift. Some weeks are WAY harder than others, but this is what works for me!
Now nutrition at work, that is something that is REALLY hard for me. I swear the things that sound good to me at work are the greasy hamburgers and fries on the grill, but that doesn’t always feel so good afterwards. What has worked best for me lately is really simple, lots of good snack foods. I usually do a pb&j sandwich with our homemade jam (which I am obsessed with right now) then really easy snack foods like: Angies Kettle popcorn, yogurt, fruit, pretzels, string cheese, vegetables and dip, etc. What are you doing? I would like to hear what others are doing on this.
Another reminder of a new baby update HERE and this below also really explains my life right now and how I relate with toddlers.
Have a sentence to describe your day so far?!
Are you a decisive eater or an indecisive eater? Do you know what you want usually or does it take you a while to figure out what sounds good?
Those working right now—>. How do you manage marathon training with work/family?! Does your workspace make it hard or easy to eat healthy? PS who is back at work and who is still working from home?
Andrew’s question for any nurse practitioners out there reading, I know there are a few! This December I am doing my applications for NP school. I have loved my time in the ICU and I really like working in the hospital and I am leaning towards acute care nurse practitioner schools. I am open to anything but I would like to hear from any nurse practitioners out there!! Family Nurse Practitioner vs Acute Care? Did you like the school you went to? Any suggestions/tips for me?
