Eek… has it really been over a month since I posted? I swear I’ve sat down at least 4-5 times to write updates and post pictures but time has gotten away from me! So, I apologize.
I have had a lot of changes lately. I’ve decided to make a career change. I love my job and my co-workers at the ER, however I have decided that I will love the pediatric ICU even more. I’ve always loved working with kids and with my back problems, I finally decided God was pushing me to make that change sooner rather than later. So, I’ll be taking April off to spend some time with friends and family and then I start my new job at the beginning of May.
I’ve also had a lot of travel and family time. We went back to Minnesota for my nephew’s baptism and a week later I went on my first cruise! It was really fun but not easy to eat healthy while on a cruise I made it through though and the next couple trips (one to South Carolina and one to Key West) should be a bit more manageable.
Aside from that, I’ve slowly learned to love cardio again (or at least not hate it) and I’ve been busting my tail at the gym. Today I wasn’t able to make it to the gym but got in a leg workout at home that I’ll post below. I was exhausted before I started but I still combined it with a 30 min Barre workout and felt so much better afterwards. It’s amazing how much better a workout can make you feel. I wanted to include some progress pictures and then I’ll post the workout at the end. Hope you’ve had a great last month and will continue to follow moving forward!
