good morning! today is call #2 / 6. i have high hopes that it will be much more pleasant than call #1, because
a) the census is lower
b) no heart babies!!!!!
c) i’ll have 3 residents to relieve me tomorrow instead of one, and i should be out of there earlier than last time!
even if it is hectic, i plan on continue working on focusing on one thing at a time. i’m on with a really nice fellow, too, so i know she will help me out if things get too crazy.
because i don’t have much more to say, i will leave you with these awesome test answers from an email my dad sent me entitled how to fail with dignity. i am usually not much for forwards, but i laughed out loud at these!
workout: 6 miles, 0.5% incline, average pace 8:58/mi while reading february’s runner’s world. i alternated between speeds of 9:13/mi, 8:57/mi, and 8:41/mi.
+ 20 minutes weights:
– pushups, 2 x 10
– squats to overhead tricep press, 12 lb weight, 2 x 12
– bicep curls, 12 lbs each hand, 2 x 10
– seated rows, 45 lbs, 2 x 12
– walking double lunges, 8 lbs each hand, 2 x 10
– ball plank-to-tuck for abs, 2 x 12
flossing report: yep!
reading: 20 minutes (again) on management of traumatic brain injury.
doin’ time: another martha-led success! if it wasn’t for my cookthrough, i am not sure i would have selected a recipe like cod with fennel and potatoes. but it was great — homey, healthy, and filling. i used celery instead of fennel (whole foods — you disappointed me by having no fennel!), but it was still good. served with steamed snap peas and a whole wheat oatmeal roll.
