Is Nursing cool?
Well let’s see...🤔
It’s not a glamorous career by any means. We’ve seen a lot of things both good and bad. We treat people at their worst, and yes, that means attitudes also. We spend 12 hrs out of our day caring for a population that, for the most part, could care less about us. We strain ourselves, and push the limits physically and mentally to ensure that the truly sick get well.
We are nurses. We are the front line in any health related battle you may be facing. We advocate for you, your family and your friends without you ever having to ask us to do so as we stare death straight in the eye and tell it to look the other way.
I’m a Registered Nurse in the Emergency Department and my team and I are trained to handle Traumas, Heart Attacks, Strokes and just about anything else you can throw at us......if you ask me, that’s pretty cool.
Stay cool whoever you are and wherever you at, as always... #progressnotperfection
Be proud of your age by taking pride in your choices. 💕
There are so many wonderful things in life...why marginalize them in favor of a number? Don’t.
Overall my lifts felt a little wiggly today 🏄🏼♀️. Deadlifts @ 210.
That staying consistent thing always comes back to haunt me. #progressnotperfection

Alright folks, I've held out on ya long enough. Allow me to share this masterpiece I came up with last week. Baked spaghetti for 5SP per serving! You heard that right 😍 I hope y'all love it as much as I did.
1 pound ground beef 96%lean
salt and pep to taste
1 medium onion , chopped
15 ounces tomato sauce
6 ounces tomato paste
•15 ounces crushed tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1 tablespoon garlic powder
crushed red pepper flakes to taste
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 cup water
• 8oz spaghetti noodles
• 5oz fat free cream cheese
• 2oz reduced fat shredded mozzarella • 3oz fat free mozzarella •
Preheat oven to 350. Pull out cream cheese to let it soften. Brown the ground beef and onions in a skillet until cooked through. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a big pot with all the listed ingredients except noodles and cheese. Simmer your meat sauce for about 30 mins, or long enough to let the flavors set in. Boil your pasta. Drain and mix the spaghetti noodles with the softened cream cheese until completely mixed throughout. Now layer half of the noodles, half the sauce, and repeat. Top with the fat free and reduced fat mozz and bake for about 20-30 mins or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Enjoy 🤗
This was me this morning, except replace bagel with smoothie.. and it wasn’t because of a hangover, it was because of some sort of bug that is trying to destroy me. I drank water and Gatorade and a green smoothie all day and then had a teeny tiny portion of ramen for dinner. I did a lot of very fun assistant fight directing and observing today. No full blown workout. Had to shift my focus on other parts of my health. 👍🏼 #daythree #accountability #healthy #sick #ill #sickgoaway #blah #fitness #progressnotperfection
some days you just gotta throw on your comfiest clothes and bust out the workouts you don’t love.... for me that’s chest day
what’s your least favorite body part to train?
Still a baby 🍑, but them legs be gettin’ thikkkkkk. I’m pretty happy with my leg and booty gains over the last year. It takes time to grow them buns! It’s not overnight and it takes work!
If you look back on where you were last year, what would you say is your biggest growth? I’m not just talking body gains, but how about life gains? I’ve gained A LOT of confidence, inside and out.
Progress can be a frustrating thing. .
It’s never as drastic, as quick, or as satisfying as we imagined it would be. .
We critique, criticize, and downplay our successes because we’re just never good enough. And more often than not we fall deep in to the comparison trap, feeling completely worthless compared to so many others who in our eyes are just rockin’ their progress.
Whyyyy do we do this? Why can’t we just celebrate our success, big and small and truly appreciate the hard work of our journey? Why do we have to compare ourselves to everyone else? .
I truly wish I knew the answer!
What I DO know is every one is on a different journey. Every one has different progress to be made. And every success, big or small deserves to be celebrated, appreciated, and recognized.
During today’s workout I remembered I had a video of me doing the same move on week one of this program. I decided to take a look and see how much progress I made and was genuinely proud and happy to see how much I improved from week one to week six! .
Maybe it wasn’t anything drastic but dangit there is improvement and that improvement deserves to be celebrated! So, here I am celebrating with myself and all of you a kind of progress that isn’t about the number on the scale or the size of my clothes, it’s progress that took dedication and discipline to achieve. It’s progress I can be proud of.
reach for your goals 💪
no matter what others say 👊
It’s always a little shaky getting back into my routine after a few days off.
👈🏼 You can swipe to check out the video
Getting back into your rhythm might be a little shaky, but before you beat yourself up (like I used to do when I would take some time off) just remember that taking time off is beneficial in many ways:
⚡️ Giving yourself a mental break from your routine can help you to feel fresh and stay committed to your overall plan
⚡️ Cross training (any activity outside of what you normally do) can wake up different movement patterns or activate ones that normally wouldn’t get hit from your same old same old
⚡️When you take time off, especially for a weekend, you’re actually not “losing” any progress. Two or three days off doesn’t make a dent if you are consistent most of the time. .
A little wobble here or there isn’t bad, and sometimes a wobble is just enough to keep you wanting more! .
Do you ever feel like you’re losing out on progress when you take time off?
I intended to post this earlier today for all my FASTer Way to Fat Loss® clients!! Better late than never right 🤷🏻♀️
One of the best lessons of this program is how to shift your mindset into forward progress and to celebrate the victories along the way. To STOP focusing on perfection. Focus on the progress you are making everyday rather than being perfect.
Perfect is an illusion and you will waste time chasing something that doesn’t exist. And in doing that, we self sabotage and inevitably give up on our goals.
Don’t waste time and energy thinking too hard about yesterday. Move forward and take your journey one day at a time. .

Today was a long day!! But when isn’t a mothers day not a long and busy?? Well after work I decided that I needed to meal prep since I took it easy on Sunday being that yesterday was a day off!! .
No matter how tired I may be, I decided that as soon as I finished my meal prep I was going to waste no time and get into my workout out gear to put in the work, and that’s exactly what I did!!!
Keto approved meals prepped for the rest of the week
