Normal life.. maybe?

Last Thursday I went into work to do some education on things that had changed since I have been out of work. I wasn't feeling well, but wanted to get it out of the way because I am going back to work this week. Yep.. finally! I'm still not 100% since getting this recent cold, but I do feel a lot better. At the advice of my nurse educator, I had the Dr write me a note to work 6 hours per shift, instead of 12, this week so I don't have a relapse (hopefully!) Luckily, I am able to do this because for the next 2 weeks I will be on "orientation" with another nurse to get back into the swing of things before I'm on my own again.

I'm nervous about going back. I'm glad, but things change quickly around there and I'm afraid I'll be too far behind. I'm also worried about a few of my coworkers that probably think badly of me for being out so long. I wish they understood that I didn't enjoy being out for so long. I didn't WANT to be broke or not be able to walk without being winded or have a tube shoved up my nose and down my throat to look at my vocal cords. I didn't enjoy any of that. I would've rather been miserable at work like the rest of them. lol But I guess I can't worry about what others think. I had to do what was best for me.

I've gotten really behind in blogging and reading other blogs. I think part of the reason is that I haven't been doing so good at eating or exercising. I haven't been motivated and didn't feel like writing. I didn't fall off the wagon, but I'm not the driver right now either. Starting tomorrow, I will get back on it. Maybe getting back to "normal" life will help. Summer will be here before I know it and I want to wear a bathing suit and look the best I can when I go to the beach! I don't want to look back at all the time I wasted. So I will STOP the cheat meals and snacks and bites. I will START exercising regularly again. I enjoy it, but it's so hard to get back into when I've been out of the routine. It's been nicer outside lately, so that does help. I'm going to have to figure out how to work exercise into my work schedule again. I had gotten used to just doing it when I felt like it because I didn't have anything to work around. I need to do it though. No excuses!

I'm gonna try to catch up on some of your blogs now. I feel so out of the loop! lol Send me good thoughts tomorrow night! =)


  1. I hope that you feel ok going back to work. It can be scary, can't it? Maybe you could post an update soon on how it went. Good luck also with cutting back on junk and stuff. It's birthday season where I am, great for my sugar addiction.

  2. Thanks! I hope to have a good update.


Leave me some flaxy love!
