It's been a week since I've blogged. I feel like I'm totally disconnected from my blog lately. However, I've still been working on my goals and staying on track. Last week I worked 4 12 hour night shifts in a row. It's an ass-kicker. Normally even after 3 in a row, I don't exercise after night number one. This time though was different. I worked out every night except Sunday night. I was quite proud of myself for getting up early & sticking with my plan.
I actually think that exercising before work helps me stay awake during the night shift. Thursday I procrastinated & didn't work out before going to work. However, once I got all my patients settled & assessed, I went on the south wing of our unit that is closed currently and fast walked for 30 minutes.

I had a short term goal to weigh 240 by Sept 28th. I seriously doubt that I'm going to lose 6.6 lbs in the next 4 days, but I'm happy that I got that close to goal. It's much better than where I started.

Hope all the GAGgers are having a great week especially team Cupid!!

    I totally agree about exercising before work helping you to stay awake. I used to work nights (only 10 hours, however) so I know how hard that can be. Great job on getting so close to your goal. You'll be there soon enough.

    I do love Portland. I've lived here my whole life with the exception of living in MN while I went to college. As long as you're not affected much by the sun, you'll love it. Some people get a little depressed because it's not that uncommon to not see the sun for a few weeks at a time during the winter. Summers can get hot, but it doesn't last long.

  2. Great job on the weight loss, and I love the way you found a way to exercise! It sounds like you are totally swamped right now!

    Take care.

    I know that exercise is what keeps me awake, especially on days when I don't do so well in the sleep department. Good job on keeping yourself active!
