The hospital was great today.
I got to chart on several patients and I saw some really interesting cases; everything from cancer to Crohn’s, to burns.
If you think I actually got in bed early last night… you haven’t been reading my blog very long! Of course I stayed up another hour and of course I was exhausted this morning. I had to grab breakfast on the go, a Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Bar.
The taste was good and I loved chewing through the chia. The bar only had 100 calories, but it did provide 4 gram each fiber and protein and 1000 and 800 mg respectively omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
Nutrition fun fact – it is important to get healthy fatty acids in your diets, but did you know that the ratio of omega 6:3 matters too? It should be about 1:1 but most Americans get too much omega-6 and not enough omega-3.
I also had a big cup of coffee at the hospital.
Half vanilla cappuccino (sweetened) and half caramel nut coffee (flavored beans).
I may have packed lunch yesterday, but it wasn’t much help sitting in my fridge all day! Instead I got a salad from the salad bar.
Spring mix topped with tomatoes, banana peppers, french dressing, and scoop of cole slaw.
I wasn’t interested in my packed-but-forgotten turkey sandwich when I got home, but I did eat my Pink Lady apple.
Plus a Caramel Pineapple Chobani Bite topped with some KIND Maple Walnut Clusters with Chia & Quinoa.
Dinner was a big slice of pizza.
Buffalo chicken with blue cheese for dipping.
This will be my last slice for a little while (I’ll explain soon) and I really enjoyed it.
This post was pretty short, so I figured I’d share my “professional” look with you all. I hope at least a few readers (hi, Nana! hi, Mom!) would like to see what I wore to my first week at the hospital.
Fact 1 – Lose-fitting tops with fun neckline details are pretty much my uniform.
Fact 2 – I know my mirror is filthy. Sometimes I hold Webster up to the mirror to see “the other dog” and I don’t always have time to clean off his nose smudges because by “sometimes” I mean daily.
