I love being a nurse. It is one of the most rewarding professions, but it truely beats me up physically and mentally. Im tired, irritable, sore and impatient the first training day after Im done my 3 12s (in a row usually) which means I have to give even more intense focus on my training AND recovery. This was one of those days; too tired (and hot) to fuck around with missing or feeling weak and got a pretty damn good result. Strong, fast and snappy 8 days out from AO2 🤘 #workhardplayhard#qualityoverquantity#focusedAF#nurselife
//FEARLESS FEMALE FRIDAY// She’s got buff arms, curly hair and the most genuine smile, followed by endless mindset tips and a side of sincere love of caring for others ~ meet the self-proclaimed Nurse Whisperer, Cat Golden 😻 She’s my friend and fellow nurse, as well as the mastermind behind @nineliveshealth! 👩⚕️💉 The path to finding her own version of success has not been a straight one by today's standards but has led her to embracing the truest version of herself🤸♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cat has a background in business and non-profit work, along with her BSN. She works per diem at Children's Hospital of Michigan and part-time at the VNA. However, she is most passionate about helping nurses care for themselves while finding balance & purpose. She does this through coffee talks where nurses can share struggles in a safe place, running an online community, hosting a Nurse Giveback Night (happened last night!!) and will be releasing a subscription and online course this fall. On top of all this, she has a CODE Self Care retreat planned for nurses nationwide ~ coming Spring 2019 in the mountains of Utah!!🌄⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In past years she was filled with a more masculine energy, to the point of being non-emotional at times. However, Cat has faced her fear of being vulnerable and has opened her heart once and for all. She has loved the journey of embracing more of her feminine energy with this new venture and has found a new sense of empowerment in vulnerability. At the end of the day, she truly believes she wouldn’t be living big enough if it weren’t for a few haters, so there’s nothing to truly fear. You can find her showing people who she is at her core and continuing to live by her model of LEAP, LAND, LIVE and inspiring you to do the same! 💓💃

Today marks six months since I have drank a Coca-Cola and I have been going to the gym five days a week for the last month. In this short time I have stopped stress shopping and stress eating. I stopped wearing makeup 90% of the time (my acne is finally clearing up at 26 years old). I sleep better. I eat cleaner. I have more energy. I wake up at 4:45 a.m. ready for the day versus 15 minutes before I need to leave for work dreading the day. I don’t fix my hair anymore (but who has time for that anyways with TN weather?) Long story short..I should have done this a long time ago. I have a long way to go but I guess you could say I finally decided it was time to practice what I preach to my kids and my patients 🤷🏻♀️ 💪🏻 💕 #onlywaytogoisup#nurselife#gymlife#PCOS#planetfitness
Healthcare workers and the public need more education about depression. This is a real and not imaginary illness. Unless you have depression yourself, saying you understand it is a condescending statement to that person. You don’t just think happy thoughts or just get over it. Have compassion and patience. Be present and emotionally supportive.
I’m done now 🌹
My shift started 30 min ago but im just chillin at home.... waiting for AAA to come let me in my car. 😓😓 IS IT REALLY WORTH IT to leave your bacteria covered hospital shoes in the garage when you get home just so you can throw everything in your car bc your hands are too full to put your shoes on; and in the midst of the hustlin lock yourself out while putting on said disgusting shoes?? Lesson learned: Put socks on before entering garage w hands full so I can just slide nasty shoes on with hands full!!! Pick your battles my friends.

The term ‘calculus’ refers to the stone, and the ‘lithiasis’ refers to stone formation. The five major categories of stones are (1)calcium phosphate, (2)calcium oxalate, (3)uric acid, (4)cystine, (5)struvite (magnesium ammonium
Phosphate). Stone composition may be mixed although calcium is most common.
I’ve always been known as “the life of the party” and “the girl that’s friends with everyone.” And initially, these seem like good things to be- the fun & friendly one, what’s bad about that? In the big scheme of things- nothing. Nothing is wrong with that.
As I’ve gotten older, those seem like shallow things to be. I’m the life of the party- but is there anything else to me when I’m not loud/wild and not trying to be funny/silly? I’m the girl that’s friends with everyone- but does anyone think of me as their best friend, do people think I don’t have time for them... does anyone trust me?
My therapist says these questions are my anxiety talking. But who knows?
I long for a slower life, a calmer life. A life that is still fun, but maybe less loud. I long for fewer friends, but better friends. A life with core people rather than all the people.
But I still want to be considered FUN.
And I still want to be considered FRIENDLY.
But is there a way to be both? Still trying to figure that out.

“When you decide to divorce the story of your limitation, and marry the truth of your unlimited capacity - the whole game changes.” ✨💪🏻💗 - Tony Robbins
Lack of time will NOT be my limitation >>> Running late this morning, but who doesn’t have time for a 25 Minute Leg Workout? 👊🏻
Happy Friday Loves - let’s do this thang.✌🏻💕
Can we be 100% real? Ok, I’m going to share this with you and I’m sure my nurse and doctor friends can relate. The day I carried a BABY to the morgue was the day my life FOREVER changed. At that moment the depths of my soul hurt for this child’s family and I wouldn’t look at life the same. We expect to wake up, we expect to live life as we did the previous day, we expect to have the full ability of our limbs. Truth is, that can all change in a single moment. My hope is that you cherish each breath you take, love those who love you (and even the ones who don’t) and live life with gratitude. When you know that life isn’t promised, you’ll appreciate it more. -Nurse Elle✨✨ #LiveLaughLove#FoodForThought : @asknurseelle
