Week 6 done!

Just completed my 6th week in the Couch to 5K program! 
25 minutes without stopping!
Only 3 weeks left!!
All 3 days next week will be 25 minute runs. I am hoping I can improve my times by then. I am still doing 16 min. miles....when I'm running. I know I need to be faster, but I am still in the process of losing weight, and I just can't go that fast! I am learning that I have to make small goals in my head so I can keep going. I say if I can just make it to this mile marker, if I can just make it to this curve...It actually helps in the long run! I made a goal mile marker in my head for tonight and I actually passed it! That made me feel great! :) My right lower leg began to hurt so bad that I could barely walk the last mile! I was not pleased with that at all! My hubby went with me tonight, which was nice while I was walking, but I am not sure I want him coming along from now on. He is so much faster than me and I usually don't listen to music when he's with me. I didn't realize how much that music pushes me along! I need it! :) Especially since my new headphone's came in yesterday! :) I haven't gotten to use them yet! All in all, I think I did pretty good tonight! :)

Since I haven't had time to do a seperate Nurse blog, 
I am going to do it right now!
I am a Pediatric Home Health Nurse. I take care of disabled children who are in foster care, or who's mother's didn't want them and other family members are taking care of them. Since I have no children of my own yet, these are my children. I have only had girls so far, and I absolutely love dressing them! All the pink, red, and yellow! I love it! :) I love to fix and put cute bows in their hair! It really is the greatest job ever! When these girls get sick though, it really hits them hard. Their immune systems are not like everyone else's. If they get sick, it usually means they end up in the hospital for a week, a month, or more! I miss being with them all of that time. It's usually such a happy time when they come back home. I am there to watch them and make sure they have someone there when they have seizures, or having trouble breathing. I love that I can watch over them. They are all such a blessing to me, whether they know it or not! I love it so much more than the hospital setting. I can concentrate on my one patient and when something is wrong, I can tell right away!  I love being a Nurse!


 Me in my scrubs! :)

These are the medications that I give one patient. And since they have just recently been in the hospital, 3 more meds have been added! That's a lot of meds for a child to be taking! But they are all separately important! And the big syringe just contains water. :) That would be a lot of medicine! haha :)

Me in my glove. If you look closely you can see my bandage from when my dog bit me on my thumb...

And another scrub picture! They are so comfy! :)

Do you like your job? Do you wish you could do something else?

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:

I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
