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?
Stay tuned next week for a REALLY BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!! :)
