strong feelings
i have decided that i have a love/hate relationship with night float.

i love
♥ getting through a ward month without 30-hour shifts
♥ having free mornings and post-call days to get other things done
♥ feeling (mostly) awake when i’m at work on call

i hate
✘ the non-rhythmic sleep schedule
✘ the feeling of dread during a pre-call day (as in, right now, when i have to start work in 70 minutes)
✘ seeing josh every other night or less!

this got me thinking about other things i have a love/hate relationship with. i came up with:

jillian michaels!
♥ feeling like a badass after finishing her workouts
♥ the results
✘ how mean she is
✘ that she now thinks she is an endocrinologist

j. crew
♥ many of their outfits, including this skirt
♥ great prices during sales
✘ non-returnable sale items
✘ often ill-fitting and not as luxe-looking in real life

grey’s anatomy
♥ eye candy fluff
♥ completely ridiculous
✘ completely ridiculous

trashy radio
♥ bob and the showgram (what? i can’t help it.)
♥ black-eyed peas and lady gaga
✘ miley cyrus and nickelback

and now it’s off to work!



workout: 40 minutes stationary cycling (intervals, levels 3 – 5) + 30-day shred, level 1. i don’t care what number level it is, it was still hard.

doin’ time: yum! buttermilk chicken tenders + carrot-cumin slaw. i used chicken breast tenders instead of wings/legs/thighs and whole wheat breadcrumbs instead of the white, and it still came out tasting delicious — almost like fried chicken, but without the grease factor.
served with the rest of the bella rosé

flossing: NO! oops.

    Love this post! Too true about Jillian…I&#39m a member of a message board and a poster was saying they needed a referral to an endocrinologist because of &#39what Jillian says&#39 despite frequent lab tests at their GP&#39s being normal!

    hee hee great post. man, nickelback&#39s on my hate list too. and ditto on jcrew–if only their stuff looked as good in person…

    Thanks for the running shout-out the other day Sarah. I can&#39t believe you thought I was running fast when I felt like I was slugging along (and started walking shortly thereafter). I&#39m glad you think that I could keep up with you on a run- but I&#39ve seen your splits and I&#39m not so sure. give me a call if you want a warm up run before some sprints though!

    haha – I am laughing at your Jillian comment. I guess I never thought about what her qualifications were. What do you think about her new book though? Have you read it or listened to her talk about it?

    hangry: i haven&#39t read it, but what i have read ABOUT it makes me cringe. however, now i kind of want to read it so that i can be more informed about others are reading (and may be thinking when they bring their kids to me as their endocrinologist in a few years!!)
