Making New Friends

As you all know I went to a bootcamp and brunch last Saturday. It was so much fun and so great to meet such amazing people who share similar interests as I do! Thanks again Lee, Amanda and Mellissa for a fun morning!

A Killer Workout

WOD1

I love trying new workouts and this is the one that Lee had us do for our bootcamp. I really enjoyed the workout. It kept my attention and I was never bored. I’m definitely going to be doing this workout on my cruise! Hopefully I can remember all the moves 🙂

Chia Seed Yogurt

Mellissa’s Chia seed yogurt is so good!! I topped mine with some of Scott’s grandma’s homemade peach jam, blueberries and Muesli. It was so good! I need quick and simple breakfast items otherwise I won’t eat breakfast. I know…. I’m bad! But if I prep quick already made things then I eat breakfast!!

Quality Study Time With Maisy

Chocolate for Breakfast

This morning I had oatmeal and decided to top it with chocolate chips and walnuts! So GOOD!!! Might not be totally healthy but it fueled me through my morning of studying!

Snuggling with Maisy

She has full control over me and she knows it…. this will not end good for me 🙂

Pei Wei for Lunch

Did I ever mention that in High School I used to work at Pei Wei. Oh man if you haven’t tried Pei Wei you NEED to!!! My favorite is the Pei Wei Spicy with Fried Rice and of course I LOVE the wontons and spring rolls!!!!! Not at all healthy (although you can get healthier options there!!) but so so good. It was the perfect fuel to power me through an afternoon of studying.

I took my first sculpt class back in October. I really loved it but my month of yoga was up. On Tuesday I headed back to Core Power Yoga for my second sculpt class. I am SO happy I went! It was such a good workout! I missed yoga 🙂

What are some of your favorites from the week?

Treat Yourself Tuesday #5

So instead of writing a plain Weekend Update post I decided to tie it into a treat yourself tuesday post!

If you are interested in hearing about how #treatyourselftuesday began check it out here. Becky is a firm supporter of treating ourselves even in the smallest ways. It can be with shopping, working out, sweet treats…. anything that is for you!

I’m going to be honest and tell you that not all of my treats are truly treats…. Some are not that great of events….

Bark Box for Maisy

So far we love our bark boxes! Maisy has loved everything she has gotten…. she is pretty easy to please though 🙂 Did you know they make beer for dogs?!?

Maisy really loved it. She really really really loved this box because the toy was a rope toy. If you ever want to win Maisy’s heart bring her a rope toy! You will be her new best friend.

Regions ER

Friday I treated myself to a visit to the ER. I know NOT a real treat 🙂 Friday morning while I was doing BodyAttack I all of a sudden felt some bad chest pain when I would inhale. Not going to lie it felt EXACTLY like when I had my Pulmonary Embolism. Since I had just stopped taking my coumadin 5 days early I was worried. Scott was a trooper and took me to the ER and sat with me during my visit, which took FOREVER!!

Good News: No blood clots for me 🙂 Bad but not really that bad news…. Pleurisy! Pleurisy happens when the lining of your lung gets inflamed, then when I took a breath it would rub… hence the extreme pain. It isn’t really known why pleurisy happens… I guess I’m just lucky 🙂 When I woke up saturday morning I felt 100% better!

Bloggers Bootcamp and Brunch

I was so happy to wake up Saturday morning feeling so much better because I was heading to my FIRST blogger meet up! Luck for me the meet up was right across town so I only had a 10 minute drive, which is good because we got LOTS of snow friday night. The bootcamp and brunch was hosted by Lee and Amanda! Thanks again ladies for an awesome get together! One other blogger was able to make it, Mellissa.

We started off with a bootcamp lead by Lee. Lee played awesome music so I didn’t even notice how hard the workout was. No worries the next day I FELT it!! Oh man my legs were so sore!! Thanks for an awesome workout Lee.

After bootcamp we dug into brunch. We had yummy Chia Seed yogurt with strawberries, blueberries and Seven Sundays Muesli. Seven Sundays was super generous and provided us with boxes of Muesli.

Muesli is like a healthier version of granola. It is very good and it is sold in TARGET now!!!

We also had yummy blueberry waffles prepared by Amanda. Not going to lie there is nothing better then a warm blueberry waffle and to make it even better Amanda bought Archer Farms Raspberry Sauce! YUMMY!!!! It was so good. I love brunch!

Double Shift

After brunch with my new Blends I headed home to get ready for work. The hospital was so crazy busy that I offered to work a double. It is always really hard to stay awake overnight but I was working with AMAZING people so it wasn’t to bad. I worked sat 3pm-7am sunday. Another perk of working overnight, we ordered Pizza Luce 🙂

IMG_1856

I got The Wrangler. I have an intense love for BBQ pizza and this is one of the bests I’ve had! So good!! I highly recommend eating at Pizza Luce if you have the chance.

More Work

I also worked Sunday and Monday. Things are very crazy around the hospital right now. So many sick babies! Keep your babies away from people with colds!!!

Interview

Monday morning before work I headed to my first nursing interview. It is for a NICU nurse position which is my dream job!!! I really have a passion for taking care of babies. I think the interview went really well! I will find out next week.

Yoga Sculpt

Earlier today I treated myself to some yoga sculpt. What a good workout!! It was lead by Lee and she is intense. The room is HOT you sweat a TON! We did lots of squats. My butt and legs will be cursing you tomorrow Lee 🙂 Lee teaches at Core Power Yoga and The Shed so if you live in the cities you should definitely check out one of her classes!
