A Day of Eats in the ER

Happy Thursday friends! Another week nearing a close :)  My “weekend: was actually yesterday and today since I have 4 12-hour shifts in a row starting tomorrow.  BOO.  I actually meant to post this yesterday but I never got around to writing it so consider this my WIAW but a day late ;)  These are my eats from Monday when I worked a 7AM-7PM shift in the ER!

 

Breakfast

Breakfast

 

I actually got up early enough to fix a good breakfast!  I made a whole grain English muffin with egg, nitrite free bacon, and a thin slice of cheese.  Fruit and iced coffee on the side!

 

Morning Snack

From about 8AM-11AM it was the calm before the storm and I had a chance to snack on some oatmeal at my workstation while I charted on our patients.  The break was short lived and the rest of the day quickly turned to chaos.  Pure chaos.

 

Lunch

Lunch

 

I think I finally ate lunch around 3PM but I am honestly not sure.  I had packed some leftover fried brown rice and bulgogi from our dinner Sunday and it was perfect.  Something I could again eat my desk quickly while working.  Are you catching on to the pattern of my days??

 

Snack 2

More finger food for the win!  It took me over an hour to be able to eat this bag of popcorn.  I would grab a handful, wash my hands, see a patient, and repeat.

 

Dinner

Dinner

 

I got off a little bit late due to a trauma arriving late in our shift which kept us from getting our other patients out the door.  Fortunately I had prepped a skinny chicken tetrazini casserole for Chris and leftovers were waiting for me upon arrival!

Dessert

Because my husband loves me he ran up to Publix to get us some chantilly cake while I showered. If you haven’t tried it and can do it now.  You’ll thank me later.

 

Well I am off to conquer a HUGE to-do list before life once again turns to chaos tomorrow.  I have you have a fantastic Thursday!

The Little Guys

When we went to Arizona for Christmas my mom and stepdad introduced Emmie to Gru and “the little guys” came into our lives.  Ever since both “the little guys” (Despicable Me) and “the little guys in the snow” (Despicable Me 2) have been on regular rotation for us.  Fortunately they’re hilarious and I actually don’t get tired […] more

What to Expect

What to Expect

  I have always been a planner.  Anyone that knows me knows that I am pretty meticulous when it comes to organizing things and getting things done.  When I am faced with something new I create a plan as to how I can best accomplish the task at hand or how can I learn something […] more
