My weight is something I have struggled with since high school. I have had success when I followed Weight Watchers and exercised. But, I always seem to find an excuse to "take a break" or get too busy. My favorite cartoon shows a doctor speaking to his patient; "What fits your busy schedule better, exercising one hour a day or being dead 24 hours day?" That pretty much sums it up!
I am in my final semester of nursing school, you would think I would know better. Which, I do. I know I am not the only one. There are plenty of overweight healthcare professionals! I don't want to be one of them. One of the most important things that nurses provide for their patients is teaching. I don't want my patients to look at me and think "Yeah, right, you don't follow the rules, why should I?
I found a website/blog that really motivated me today. http://theantijared.blogspot.com/
This guy has it figured out!

In the fall I begin my preceptorship here in Woodland. I am so happy to not have to drive to Marysville so much anymore! Fourth semester also includes a psych class. The instructor is a former nursing supervisor for Woodland Memorial who I adore, so I am really looking forward to that class.
Since school ended I have been decompressing. I have been just enjoying my family and hanging around the house. Although it may be a little late in the season we have put in a garden. My father has been so wonderful, doing all the rototilling and teaching me all about the plants. Thanks Dad! I also fulfilled a long time dream and planted an herb garden. I ended up using an old animal trough that has been in the barn since the last great depression!
