First Exam was Okay -- Diet is still okay (I think.. hehe)

It has been forever since I updated this blog. At first I didn't understand how some other student nursing blogs never seem to update their stuff --- well now I know. Time is is like a unicorn, in a student nurse world -- you never seem to find it.

But here I am. I needed a break to relax and here I am. Just a quick recap. School's been fabulous and shitty. Pardon my french.

Life has to happen and nursing school will NEVER wait for you, so you just had to do what you have do. Deal with it. Right? Right.

Anyway, my weight fluctuated back to my favorite range 159-160 lbs. which I'm okay as long as I don't exceed that.

I've been consistent with my eating habits as far as types and portions. I probably eat a little less now than prior since I'm always choosing to do school work than "waste time" eating lol.

Honeynut cheerios and soy milk has been my friend in the last week -- I broke it yesterday after an exam and had Asian food with my honey.

It was salty and oily -- Check my serum sodium it's probably +145 mEq/L

I'm kidding of course.

I have skills practicum this Monday so I really need to prepare for that.

Despite the stress and the workload it's been good. Actually too good.  I'm enjoying making friends and bonding with fellow students.

And as much as I love bonding and making friends. I really need to remain focused and remember my priorities.

Anyway, off to my once a week date with the spin bike and maybe... MAYBE a Jillian Michael video.


  1. Keep yourself motivated and things will become easier and not so shitty.

    Love Lynn

  2. School isn't meant to be easy, then everyone would do it. Nurses are undervalued and highly important and you have to be capable to get through it, so keep that motivation chugging!

    I'm hearing you on no time, even as I type this the little angel on my shoulder is saying I should really be doing some work *L*

  3. Thanks ladies for the encouraging words. I'm trying my hardest to keep going and when things doesn't go the way I wanted it -- it's really difficult. I hope everyone is doing great!

    much love,

  4. Really, it sounds like you're doing well! Not only on the school front, but on your lifestyle, too. From here on out, as long as you stay on top of things you should start to fall into a routine. Really glad to hear from you and that things are going well. Seems like everyone has kinda dropped off of blogging so much, so I don't think anyone is upset. I just keep checking back now and then! LOL

  5. Gertie is the best!!!!

  6. aww.. :) who is this mystery visitor?!
