I have sort of been slacking off in motivation with the walking. Finding more excuses NOT to be the one to walk the dogs, plus eating total RUBBISH! It doesn't help that my patients think that what nurses REALLY need is to sit around and eat chocolates all day long. Well, okay, so they're not ALL wrong, but ugh! If I were to list here the sort of devilish things that our lovely, well meaning patient families bring in, it would surely cause some sort of bakery stampede. I just came back from taking Kai for a walk, but I wound up stopping to talk to a neighbor for more than an hour, so I didn't get much exercise there! Part of the problem is that I am not working with my usual partner at work. She's on vacation for 3 weeks and I guess the shakeup in my routine has affected the sorts of things I feel like doing and the foods I am craving. Does that make sense? It's the only thing I can think of! I am a little discouraged by the weather being either cold OR snowy, too. AND!! We are expecting a snowstorm, starting tonight! I'm really pissed because my mother and I were supposed to visit my sister in Maine, and now it doesn't look like we're going to make it :( It's the middle of April...give us a break!
