Every two weeks at work we have these big meetings where we discuss all of our patients, their current medical condition and steps to continue ensuring they are receiving the highest level of care. Today was my boss’s last meeting because he is moving to San Francisco with his nice wife to pursue another career. I am really really happy for him but I am really sad that he’s leaving because he is one of the nicest, smartest, understanding RN’s (registered nurse & Clinical Director) I have ever worked with. I learned so so so much from him in the past 6 months about the medical field and he will be very missed.
To celebrate his going away party I convinced Daniela (my devoted reader AND business manager) to buy all of our staff In N Out for lunch instead of our typical fancy pants sandwiches. SUCCESS! We had In N Out. This is me holding the box of 30 cheeseburgers and french fries.
It’s stupid how much I love this food.
I ate french fries, a coke and a cheeseburger. I didn’t finish my fries and I ate 3/4’s of my burger which cost me approx. 23 points. The NAKED juice I had this morning was 3 points. I basically had 3 points left for the day. I came home and ate a banana and had a few pieces of turkey which totaled 29 points for the day. Although I definitely did not eat all the proper food groups, I did stay within my points which is a good thing.
I also earned a +1 point by walking 35 minutes outside before our long meeting.
I made it THE ENTIRE DAY without eating any Skittles. That was really hard. I can’t say the same for my coworker Cole. Actually it was our intern that asked me where my Skittles were so I told him and he went and grabbed the “jar replenishment” bag and brought it into the conference room. That is where Cole grabbed it and continued to eat them like a boss. Daniela came into the conference room, noticed the bag and almost killed me for failing miserably. I was happy to announce that I wasn’t behind this and it was actually the boys. Here are some picture documenting this. Daniela’s facial expressions are the best:
Here is one of Cole’s doodles during our meeting. Was he drawing me? I probably should have asked him but instead I just took this picture and laughed at it.
I really love my job and the people I work with. There were more than 10 moments today where I found myself laughing so hard that I either choked a little or I was crying. I feel incredibly lucky that I like every single person I work with and I feel like the feeling is mutual. How awkward if I was wrong, right? Welp, I guess ignorance is bliss in this case!
Good night everyone!
