The 9 Hour Waddle

Good Morning Everyone!

I have to say yesterday did not feel like a regular work day to me at all. I spent the entire day in the operating room in one case. I thought I would be done by 2:30, and be able to help out on the floor some, but that didn’t happen.

Before my case I had some food. Greek Yogurt with PB2 powder on the side and what I thought was a trail mix bar, but ended up being a really big granola bar. Beggars can’t be choosers.

I really like this tupperware!

This one was really big, like eating 2 granola bars. It was good, but not what I would normally gravitate towards.

At 7:30 I headed right to my case, only to return back to the real world at 4:30. Yup 9 hours of fun! Actually I did have a good time. I got to do a lot of sewing and work with one of my good friends.

Problem was at one point I was on a sitting stool sewing up a belly and when I went to get up I COULDN’T. Literally my legs were frozen. We were about 5 hours into the case and I just started to feel every single muscle in my body ache like you wouldn’t believe. I think I didn’t feel it before because I was in one position the whole time. But MAMA MIA! That leg routine yesterday and the chin ups DID MINNIE IN! Okay enough with the caps, sorry. But seriously, I cannot remember the last time I was this sore. It must have been my very first heavy lifting leg day over 6 months ago. Every single muscle is sore too. Even my abs. I had no idea chin ups used so many muscles in your body. My lats and traps especially, holy cow. Oh and the booty.

At 4:30 I literally waddled out of the operating room. Not kidding. So if you want a workout that will make you feel this way, try mine posted yesterday, yikes.

And guess what? A 9 hour case, only 3 hours of sleep, which definitely wasn’t straight (I was up every 20 minutes), and every muscle sore as can be, and I STILL hit the gym. Yep! Absolutely no excuses. I may have waddled there, but I did it.

It was arm day! Since I was sore I made this quick... and semi painless

And yes I am the only girl I know rocking a sock bun at the gym. It’s a good hairstyle for the OR.

I did 30 minutes of cardio on the elliptical and then a nonstop arm session. No breaks, in and out of the gym! Some of my exercises I did less reps because I was so sore, I was grunting through the pain. The cardio actually felt good. My legs needed the flushing.

During my gym session, my new BFF decided to make an appearance. What? I don’t talk at the gym… I know. I’m talking about Jane. Jane is the name for my vein. Jane the vein 🙂

Jane is all over the place here!

She really came out full force today!

Hi there Jane

Hi there Jane

At the end of my session I STRETCHED IT OUT! And headed home to my girl 🙂

All I wanted when I walked in was a fluff. So I had one. This was a vanilla peach fluff

Speaking of fluff, as promised, here is my Frappuccino Fluff! 

Frappe Fluff!

Frappe Fluff!

This little guy only has only 250 calories and 2.5 grams of fat for about 1 1/2 of these! This little one in the picture is about 150 calories or so. Indulge today! A Starbucks Frappe for a GRANDE is 430 calories and 14 grams of fat. PASS!

I will have to see how my day goes today, but I’d really like to have a new food recipe up for you guys! I know I had the guac, but I need something a little more hearty. It might have to wait for the weekend.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Flex it, Remember no excuses!

  1. I can’t believe I never thought about doing that either! I love their frappuccinos, although I gave them up a year ago and only buy their tea now. Defiantly going to be trying that this weekend 😀

    • I get the rare skinny latte from Starbucks. So good. I’ve never even had a frappe from Starbucks. I don’t want to because I know it’s probably delish!
