“It’s a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together.” ——————————————————— The medical field can be as rewarding as it can be draining. As a nurse, I work 12hr shifts, 3-4 days/week. I often get told “why are you always tired? You only work three days”... what people don’t realize is that in ONE day we can experience everything from bringing a new life to this world to consoling a family for losing a loved one. ——————————————————STATS, codes, having meds due at the same time for all your patients, running from one call light to the next, dealing with patients and family that have had a bad experience or just got the worst news of their lives...trust me when i say the list goes on and on. ———————————————————These are all things we deal with on a daily and why I decided to take care of myself. I started this fitness journey because being a nurse is so rewarding but definitely not easy. I was letting the things I can’t control around me stress me out. I was drained (physically and mentally), I was over eating, i was getting sick often, and I was so emotional. I would hear it everywhere but never felt like it concerned me; YOU HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF before you take care of anyone else. Basically, practice what you preach🙃 So I decided to listen and do things to better myself. Now everyday i try to make small changes to better my health and inspire others to do the same. I feel a thousand times better and more confident in myself. ———————————————————- I love nursing, I love what i do. I am proud to wear scrubs (plus they are comfy and hide my fat😜) i also love fitness for challenging me, giving me the mental break I need, and creating a more positive and confident me. ———————————————————#fitnurseintraining #supporteachother❤️

Today was my first day back in the gym after being off for about a month... I’d be lying if I said I kept talking myself out of going. • I knew my strength wasn’t going to be what it used to be. • I knew I was going to look in the mirror and realized how much muscle I lost. • I didn’t want to do it. • Then I snapped myself back into check and told myself that it’s not about what I used to be, but where I’m going. • So I got myself up off the couch and went to the gym. • It’s been a long time coming, but I think I’m finally back in the game. • If you’ve been going through a hard time in your life, don’t feel guilty if you haven’t been able to exercise regularly. It happens. You’re human. It’s okay to act like you don’t have it all together. • Happy Tuesday My Loves 💖🤟🏻
