Oh yea summer!

School is finally over for the summer. Man, it felt like F-O-R-E-V-E-R!!

The last 3 weeks has been intense for me, but I came out strong and may I say so myself... victorious :)

Not too shabby of a grade :) Ok-- it's a B. But in nursing rarely anyone gets a freaking A, so I'll take that B and skip happily home

As you can see in the picture above.. that is my weight this morning. I honestly thought I could have been a lot more since I haven't done anything since I started school. And I think that's just how it is and I'm just going to try to make it work.

Although I have some 12-hour shifts, three days a week in my future (I'm precepting this summer), I'm going to work hard and lose some weight before school starts again this August.  Why?

Because I have to. I feel so unhealthy it's kind of scary, so this picture should really hit the mark and enforce the importance of my health goals

I'm joining Dysfunctional Barbie's Biggest loser challenge. Very excited about it! :)

Till then I hope everyone is having a great weekend!


  1. Hope you have a wonderful summer to unwind and focus on you! Congrats on getting the academic year done :)

  2. B's are JUST FINE!!! Fabulous even!!! I went in hoping for A's & seriously felt victorious for my B's! :)

    You can do this! :) (I'm also trying to lose weight over the summer before going back to school in September.)

    1. Thank you Elle :) We can all do this! I am pumped!

  3. Hey Gertie,

    Take that "B" and run with it, woman! Nursing school is tough and that "B" is a badge of honor IMHO. Try to have some fun though, over the summer, Gerts. You'll be back at school before you know it and a little R&R is definitely called for. Proud of ya!


  4. Thank you Ellie-love. You're the sweetest thing :)

    I'm actually slowly getting out of that school mode. I'm still having that guilty feelings when I find myself watching TV then I realized I'm on vaca and heck! It's a great feeling knowing I don't have to open one stinking test book till August!

  5. I'm a B girl...actually more like C and D girl but if I get a B I'm totally stoked cause it doesn't happen often! haha Welcome back, lets smash the 170/160's and get you into the 150's befor school in August. :P Don't be too discouraged through if Blue Teams win's majority of the weigh ins. haha. j.k <3
