Skinny Minnie Loves Overtime Pay

WOW! That’s all I have to say about my workday yesterday. Literally kicked my Skinny Minnie booty. It was insanely overwhelming. I’ve only been there 3 weeks and all the residents were gone taking a test, my boss was in the OR all day, so it was me managing the floor all day. Pager went off every 4 seconds (I’m not exaggerating guys). I have to say for someone that’s only been there for a short time, and for being a person that only dealt with pregnancy before to now working with all surgical patients, I handled myself pretty well. Made me feel competent! Always a good feeling 🙂

On the way to one of the floors I stopped for 30 seconds to pick up this little treat

Lucky to work in a hospital and pick up one of these babies

I literally said to the lady “Give me the biggest cup you have”. Boy I NEEDED IT! When I woke up I was already dragging and at work I was trying not to be rude yawning during rounds, but couldn’t help it. Before coming in, I only had half a scoop of coffee at home so it was too weak and I was suffering. This coffee was the dark roast! Mmmmmm good stuff

Later in the afternoon I finally saw a window, and this was happening

View from a window. I was trapped inside with no end in sight!

Not going to be a fun ride home! Actually I didn’t hit traffic because I didn’t leave until past 6 (supposed to leave at 430). GOD BLESS OVERTIME PAY! But the roads weren’t even cleared! I couldn’t believe it!

When I finally got home I raced down the hallway because I knew my baby was waiting for me! Only thing that stinks about overtime is more time that Phoebe is alone, but we have 2 whole days together now 🙂

I'm coming Phoebs!

She was so happy to see me and didn’t leave my side all night! I have to say I was so happy to see her too. I always sit on the floor when I get home and she leaps into my arms and attacks. Love this little one!

Always by my side

Dinner consisted of some shrimp marinated in just olive oil, lime juice, and pepper. I also had some other leftovers I scrounged up, and picked at stuff in the fridge because I didn’t feel like waiting to make a major meal.

I then caught up on some TV, laundry, and started cooking a little. Even though I decided to take the day off from the gym, I really didn’t want to. I felt like I could have benefitted from a little exercise after that day, but the body always needs a recovery day! I plan on hitting the gym hard for leg day today (Saturday) since I don’t have any major plans (well of course G-Mama and Pop Pops- cannot wait!).

I love going in the kitchen when I’m upset or stressed. It really helps to calm me. Two days ago I was the happiest person in the world, I still am happy, it was just a hectic day and I am really missing socialization with my family and pup. I usually just text my family a few things each day, and hang with Phoebe an hour or so before starting the work day all over again.

So to cheer me up, I made these cute little fruity protein snacks!

These are Protein Yogurt Fruit Kabobs!

One of these darling little kabobs has 53 calories, 0.1 grams of fat, 2 grams of carbs, and 10.4 grams of protein. Wow protein on a stick! Click the picture for the recipe 

My eyes suddenly became heavy after I finished and off to bed I went. Never felt more deserving of sleep!

Hope you enjoy every second of your weekend!

XOXO With a Cherry On Top,
