Anne the Nurse (RN) ICU  Dinosaur Girl. πŸ¦– I cook on my story. πŸ— I'm here for the dogs. 🐢

The James Bond Island tour was phenomenal. Feeling incredibly blessed to have experienced it. Happy thick thigh Thursday. #thighland photo cred: @sarahannwilkerson

After a long day of shopping in the heat & humidity in Patong Beach, I can't wait to jump into the pool. But first a pic of this cute suit. πŸ‘™ #nomakeup #messyhair #ilostafewpoundsinsweat

Highly recommend you visit the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary if you ever get the chance. Another unforgettable day in Thailand. 🐘❀️

Out here living my best life (and probably eating too much). 😊😊😊

My list of excuses to skip today was longer than I could list here. I sat in the parking lot longer than I want to admit. I didn't have the usual enthusiasm. I didn't feel an ounce of motivation. But afterwards...I felt better. Accomplished. Had a burst of energy when I got home. Crossed a few more things off my to do list. Thank you so much to all those who support me. I struggle from time to time but I know there are people rooting for me. To succeed and to fail. I reflect back on my years of being morbidly obese and I remember what I am fighting for. I remember the consequences of choosing what's easy and eating anything and everything I want. I think to my future and how I want to live a long and full life. Someone told me I was "fatphobic" and I'm not. I just know what the complications are. And they're quite serious. I think how this could be me. Diabetes, obesity, alcoholism, all run in my family. I don't want to die at 62 like my grandmother, whom I loved dearly. When I was 18 years old I'd rather hang out with her than anyone else. She left the hospital AMA time and time again and told me the nurses were "bitches". I told her I'd become a nurse and take care of her. I never got the opportunity to do so. I still love sugar. I crave it! I still love lazy days. I'm on the couch as we speak! Sometimes I don't give a flying fuck what I look like. But I am just a regular woman trying my best to create a good life for myself. To those of you writing me for advice please understand I am no way qualified to coach or train anyone! I work full time+. I am trying my best to take care of myself and my family. I do not have much extra time. I try to respond to my DMs as best I can but I'm months behind. The laundry isn't put away. I'm tired. My muscles ache.But I believe our health is worth fighting for. Keep fighting. πŸ’ͺ

She goals! 😍😍 Hip thrusts are my favorite lift. What's yours?

What I love about being a nurse and a few things I've learned. Firstly, I am always learning. After 8 years of being an RN I still feel I have a lot to learn. Being humble in this line of work is a must for the safety of your patient. Never hesitate to question things, think out loud to your charge nurse, and ask for help if you're not sure how to perform a task. Teamwork is crucial. I hate to sound like a motivational poster but your team can pull off some amazing things when you all work together. Look out for one another, feed one another, back each other up. It is very rewarding to contribute to the success of a patient outcome because you all pulled together to get the work done. It's not the most glamourous way to spend 12 hours but it's incredibly rewarding for those of us that love it. It also puts life into perspective. You meet people at their most vulnerable hours. In the end it's all about your family and the real connections you have with those you love. Nothing else matters. Try to be healthy and take care of your body. Try to be conciencious and take care of your mind. Foster healthy relationships. Tell people you love them. Try to impact others positively. Root for others to succeed. Spend time outdoors. Don't drink & drive. The simple stuff is the most important like "when did my patient last poop?" Scrubs are @fitscrubs (code "anne20" to save 20%)

Just thinking about what I'm gonna eat later. πŸ—

In my happy place. #freeweights #resistancebands
