I heard the doorbell rang, and I could not go back to sleep. So I woke up and made a shake to wake me up, fill me up, and help replenish my muscles from the morning workout. Since today is National Peanut Butter Lover Day, I threw together the classic:
1 Tbsp Low Sodium Better n’ Peanut Butter
2 scoops Chocolate Metabolife
1/4 tsp xanthum
Night shift was smooth sailing with the exception of a few fevers. And my eating was good, too!
As soon as I got home, I crashed! I woke up around 1 pm, just in time to get ready for another shift.
To give myself some energy, I ate Chobani Blood Orange Greek yogurt topped with chia. Is it supposed to taste a little orange-y?? I did not get that…
Before leaving for work, I ate this baby…
A dark chocolate covered pineapple that I picked up from the Farmer’s Market. Interesting…
Tonight, something amazing happened. I’ve never been more flattered! A mom grabbed me and told me to visit her daughter. Apparently, her Aunt brought her a stuffed puppy dog and she sleeps with it every night. Her mom asked her why she named the puppy, “Sammy.” She said, “after my nurse friend Sammy!” I was floored! So sweet! Is this what it feels like to be a nurse? To establish that relationship with a patient? I love it!
Dinner was Chicken and Carrot ravioli topped with green beans and basil pesto. Yum!
I ate dinner early so I got hungry around 9:30pm and grabbed a snack pack of Lorna Doones. This was my first interaction with these cookies and i must say, they were satisfying and delicious.
A girl from work kept talking about calzones and chicken wings on our way out the door and I started to crave a calzone! My step dad ordered pizza last night so when I got home I snacked on a piece of left over.
My eating is not perfect but it is getting better every day and I’ve been more in tune with being able to recognize fullness. Thank God!
