5 lbs gone

Well its been a week. I lost 5 pounds this week and stuck to my plan. I'm proud of myself. :)
Since this is my blog I guess I can make it about dieting, scrabooking, crafting and nursing right? lol A little mixture never hurt.

This week I am off my orientation at work. So tomorrow I'm on my own as a new nurse. Scary huh? I feel ready. I know stuff will come up where I have questions but as far as the day to day I got it.

This week I also got my certification in ACLS - advanced cardiac life support. Thats when they have code blue. Normally I wouldn't be so proud of a certification but this class took a total of 3 days and was pretty stressful. Its like they crammed a 3 hour class into 3 days and set you loose. They had a dr come in and do the mega code with us and that made me more nervous. Didn't want to look stupid in front of the dr...ya know? They already have such high views of nurses.

I'm sick. I was fine until Wednesday morning. Tuesday night I got the flu shot and then I feel like I got hit by a truck. So, the virus in the flu shot is dead and all. its not a live virus. they say you can't get the flu from the vaccine. But If you are already compromised or already sick you can have more side effects. Maybe from all the stress of everything I was more compromised. I don't know. All I know is i feel like crap and i'm hoping I feel better tomorrow. I do not want to call off work for being sick on my first day on my own. You know how bad that would look?

Well, i'm going back to bed in hopes of getting better.
