Day #1/14

July 9, 2014

Thank you for bearing with me through the pump-induced insanity.  Your insights are all wise and welcome, and I still haven’t come to any firm resolution.  However, I’m gradually (again) approaching (again) acceptance (again).  And I’ll try not to let it dominate my thoughts or this blog again, so I think I’ll just leave it at that for now.

SO!  Today is day #1 out of a 14 day stretch of call.  FOURTEEN!  That’s 336 hours, for those keeping track, and I have completed a whole . . . 13/336 thus far.  I thought perhaps it would be kind of fun — well, my kind of fun anyway — to try to post every day of those 14.  Even if I don’t have any brilliant insights to share, I’ll at least post:

* any workout completed (because I really do need the motivation/accountability lately!)

* something interesting I read/listened to that day

* one positive thing about the day

* a picture

Sort of a like a very micro Project Life of sorts — we’ll just call it Project Survive-Two-Straight-Weeks-of-24/7-Call.

Let’s begin!


day 1/14

workout: barre3 total body rev (30 minutes)

interesting:  freakonomics podcast on takeru kobayashi, hot dog competitive eating champion

positive:  one of the medical assistants telling me that she liked when I was on call because I kept things relaxed and calm.  I am not necessarily so calm inside, but I’m really glad it seems that way.


4th of July parade in Havertown, PA
(my all-black outfit is not an anarchist statement, it’s sleepwear
because we went to the airport at 4am that morning!)

PS:  I did get to meet Ana and Laura in Philadelphia (2 separate dates, though it would have been fun all together!).  They were both beautiful and awesome in person, in case anyone was wondering 🙂

    Thanks for the shout-out! It was great to run with you in person…even if I was slow!

    May the force be with you over the next 14 days and good on you for being an oasis of calm.

    I wilt badly after one day and am a crazed wreck after a weekend….
