Post Night Shift Post & Award!

Worked a Night Shift last night, which was slightly stressing as the last time I worked a Night I had a hypoglycemic attack and nearly passed out in a patients room - not good times. Yesterday I managed a 2.5hr nap, ate as minimally as possible during the day so I could save my calories for night, and filled up on raw fruits and veggies with cottage cheese. I had a Medium Coffee with 1 Cream and 1 Sugar (as to not spike the sugars!) and I did surprisingly well. I felt a little funny driving home this morning, but all in all it was successful and I didn't feel too exhausted. I passed out almost immediately though when I got home, and slept till noon. As I am only doing the one shift for now I didn't want to screw up my sleeping patterns that much, so now I still feel slightly funny, almost like a mini hangover without the nausea.

That's the look that is on my face right now. My first Blog Award EVER!

The Rules:
  • Thank the person and link them in your post.
  • Tell ten things about yourself.
  • Nominate your bloggers.
  • Go to their blogs and let them know you've given them an award!
First the shout out last week, and now an award! I feel so special :) Thank you ThunderThighs. You are inspirational and motivating and funny and upbeat. I love your blog!

Ten Things About Me - My apologies that these are really random and short! I didn't want to bore you all!
  1. My favorite food is Banana's. I can't get enough of them, and I could probably eat them at every meal if they weren't packed with sugar. I eat a banana every morning for breakfast.
  2. I think I am going to get Arthritis by the time I am 30. Legit. Every bone and joint cracks in my body when I move and I have terrible crepitus in my shoulders, spine, and hips. I recently started taking Omega 3 and Glucosamine, and have noticed that the stiffness (Yes, stiffness. Yes, I am only 20) I feel in the mornings has gone down, so I am hoping this well help lube me up and hold off the arthritis for a bit longer.
  3. Britney Spears is my favorite music artist. Love her to bits and proud of it!
  4. I can't bake. Not cookies, cakes, pies, nothing. I always find a way to mess it up. This is probably a good thing considering my mouth filled with sugar-seeking teeth.
  5. My favorite TV show is True Blood. My favorite Book series is the Charlaine Harris True Blood Novels. Anyone else read them!?
  6. I have this thing with names, faces, and celebrity tidbits - Photographic memory of sorts? It's random, but I always remember a name and a face, and stupid little facts about the celebs - Why can't I apply this to nursing or pathophysiology!?
  7. My favorite movie is Notting Hill :) I have seen it countless times.
  8. I believe in Harm Reduction and am a huge advocate for clean needle and pipe distribution. I could do a thousand blog posts on this topic.
  9. My biggest fear is Tornado's, it is a serious phobia for me, Panic Attacks and all.
  10. I want to help as many people as I can with weight loss, whether it be through this blog, one-on-one in email, MFP, ext.. I love talking about nutrition and exercise. If you ever are feeling down about your journey, I am a quick email away. I respond to everyone and I am so grateful for those who take the time to read my blog and comment on my posts. You all continue to inspire me to stay healthy!
Phew - 10 things are hard to think of!

My Nominees
  • Amanada @ Busting Through It - My continuous inspiration to lose weight. She inspired me to create a blog and without her influence I would not have had the success that I have had.
  • Paulina @ Fabulously Skinny - Such a cute blog design and great success so far on her journey!
  • Anna @ Diary of A Former Food Addict - I swear the words she writes could come straight from my mouth! I love reading her posts because I relate so well to them.
These are just a few of the Blogs that I follow - I wanted to give the award to those who (**I think**) had yet to receive it.

Off to have a snack of Banana soft serve because I didn't have my Banana with cereal this morning! Have a great day lovely Readers and thank you for being wonderful!
