Day 4 and Just 1 More!

Hey, now, I’ve made it to day 4 and 1 more day to go for this first week. Well, tonight’s workout challenged my knees with all the squats, lunges and squat jacks. I may need cold compresses and some Ibuprofen before it’s all said and done. However, the end result man…the end result is worth it. So, how am I feeling coming to an end to the week? I’m a lot tired, not much energy, and well lacking some sleep. I woke up at 1:46 this morning and couldn’t fall back to sleep. Once I did, it was my 5am alarm saying get up and get ready for work. I can be super pumped at the beginning of the week, but by the time we get to hump day, I’m starting to feel the decline. I wonder why that is? I haven’t figured it out yet. I almost feel like I’m trying to get a cold. And well, 2 of the nurses have been out for severe flu symptoms. I’m just hoping that I’m not #3. An encouraging word for this evening is to keep making it happen. Everything won’t be easy, come natural, or be handed to you. Some things we actually have to work for and sometimes hard. But as my high school principal used to say, “If it is to be, it is up to me.” So, if we want results, then we must make it happen. You are beautiful, tell yourself that, feel it in your bones, see it in your eyes. This process is bringing out the best in us and showing us what we’re made of. We got this!

Until Next Time,

I am an RN working on my DNP, preparing to launch several aspects of my new business and writing and getting ready to publish my first book. I love to write so blogging seemed like a great way to naturally express myself and publish my journey as a nurse.
