I'm back from a short break from SP. I have been focused on my new job, which I absolutely love!! I am now working as a hematology/oncology nurse in an infusion clinic within the hospital. I've been there a few months now and I officially start my chemo training tomorrow and I'm super excited. I have met so many great people with different stories and they all touch my heart. I know that they are going through so much and I just want to help make it a better experience for them.
I found my motivation to get back to trying to be my healthy self. My son went to the doctor and he was told that he has to lose 20 lbs, no exceptions or excuses. I know that if he's gonna do it, I have to set a good example for him. Both he and I worked out this morning. I may look into a membership at our local recreation center but I'm not sure if he is too young to use the equipment (he's 13).
My husband has been laid off since the beginning of August but he accepted a new job and will start on 11/21. It's been a long three months having him off, but also it has been nice because he gets the kids to where they need to be, and he cooks dinner!
My daughter is having a busy junior year of high school. She is currently in Washington DC for a field trip. She has her learners permit and has been working on her driving. It's still scary, I'm not gonna lie!! She still has a ways to go before she can get her license.
My plan is to work out 3-4 times per week doing both cardio and strength. I took it slow today but will gradually build up my workouts. With the holidays about to be here, there is no better time to recommit to being healthy.
I hope you all are doing well. Thanks again for reading!!
