...and now today's cardio will consist of getting them in the ground before the storm hits ⛈ .
Ps apparently I'm repping Where's Waldo😂
Whoa! This week has been EMOTIONALLY DRAINING.
As a nurse we learn to park our emotions in different lanes if you will. I can have a super emotional day with one patient and an amazing day with another patient in the room literally next door. We learn to adjust our emotion although we carry it all. The good and the bad.
This week my family has gone through a decent amount of emotionally driving events. All separate family members but all family of which I love and I'm telling you it's tough.
How does one stay emotionally fit?
Mostly.... the believe that a higher power is involved? Or is it the belief in ones self knowing that you're okay.
Everyone handles life stressors in their own way. But I will say this, when you have faith that the u inverse has your back, and you believe in yourself enough to know that you will be okay, you learn to take and accept the good and the bad as part of the entire story.
We all have our story and many if our stories intermingle which is what makes life so amazing.
As for me now... I'm about to allow myself to zone out for a bit. Turn the volume down, enjoy a glass of wine and recenter myself. 💋
Non Scale Victory over here... and some of y'all might think I'm crazy for this one 😅
When I gained weight over the past few years, I gained some ta-ta's too 👀
To me, my well-endowed self has always been a reminder of my weight gain, and made it harder for me to wear some super cute clothes 😔
Over the past year, I've lost 15 lbs and 12 inches by using home fitness programs, eating right, and drinking my daily superfoods shake... and I figured that some of it HAD to be lost from up top.
I went to Victoria's Secret today and got measured... and I lost a cup size!! I'm finally on the road to where I feel most comfortable with my body and myself ☺️ Bring on the cute new bras!!! 💕

Experienced travelers try to bring only clothing items that will be worn repeatedly, complement other items, and have multiple uses. Pack with color coordination in mind. Black and Neutral colors are a win! They dress up easily and can be extremely versatile.
A few of my go to items are: ✌🏽Maxi skirt can be dressed up or dressed down and can also be worn as a swimsuit cover up or a dress!
✌🏽Light weight cardigan will always come in handy. ✌🏽Sarong! I have one that converts to a purse that I purchased in Panama. There are so many cute ways to wear sarongs and they double as beach towels and bags. .
. 🤔What are your GO TO items when packing to travel for an extended time? Leave it in the comments! .
🤙🏽Tag a Travel Nurse or fellow travel addict! 🌍✈️
Gratitude is about recognizing the good in our lives and appreciating what we have.

4.4 mile hike with these 👶🏼👨🏼 boys soaking up the outdoors ⛰ and reflecting on yesterday's celebration.
Ending the day with a beer 🍺. Cheers.
Believe it or not, I wear normal clothes sometimes too 🙈(key word sometimes) I hope you're all enjoying your holiday weekend! I'm spending mine working at the hospital, but I'm thankful I get to go to a job where I do what I love: taking care of others ❤️
