i am going to:
★ focus on one thing at a time
★ concentrate on now, rather than later
★ enjoy taking care of patients
★ experience the only november 11th, 2008, that i will ever have.
as you can probably tell, things are getting challenging and i am getting tired. someone anonymous reminded me of my mindfulness quest after my whiny post from 2 days ago, and i am glad they did. call is a struggle, but the rotation is finite, and everything will be better if i just take it one day at a time and try to get as much out of it as i can.
workout: an easy post-call 4 miles at 9:13/mi pace (0.5% incline). i had planned to do weights too, but it was late and i just wanted to go home, so i did. i think i am going to cut myself some slack and not worry about strength training for the next 2 weeks. i don’t really enjoy it and would rather have that time for something else, like sleeping.
cooking: i made super-easy pasta with prosciutto and spinach from october 2008 cooking light. it inspired last night’s post, of course (and yes, josh really did say that).
