Work Update!

I just wanted to post an update on my wonderful new job! Things are really going great! I've seen around 98 patients just since I started two and half weeks ago! I've had some really great and interesting cases and have lots of really wonderful patients who have graciously accepted me as a new provider in the office. Life is really wonderful right now! We've changed out some light fixtures in the house and got some new furniture too. So I will try to post some house pics this week...sorry its taken me so long to get around to doing it. AND.....bootcamp is getting a little easier and I've lost 4 lbs so far too! YEA!

Well, I started a women's bootcamp this week. Tiffany (Josh's aunt & our neighbor) has been trying to talk me into it for a while and since now I live so close to where it is and I'm not that busy, I decided I needed to get more serious about my workouts and do it! I don't really know what it is that I expected, but its REALLY hard. Basically, its a solid hour 3 times/week of non-stop cardio/weight training/body weights combined with almost throwing up multiple times (I never actually did) and sweating like I've never done before. The instructor is actually very sweet and encouraging, is 13 years older than me and probably has 1% body fat, if that. She's really amazing, but works us soooooo hard. I have never been more sore in my life. Every muscle in my body hurts and for the last few days my hamstrings have been so sore that I can't walk completely normal. I'm definetly going to keep it up and I have friends doing it with me to keep me motivated, but I'm just praying that before long some of this soreness starts to go away (although, I've been told since every workout is different, the soreness just moves to different areas). What did I get myself into????

1st week on the job!

This was my 1st week working as a real PA!! Wow...I really can't believe it! It was WONDERFUL! I've been pretty busy this week (much busier than I expected for the 1st week) and on my first day alone had 13 patients on my schedule!!! Everyone at the clinic is really great and what's crazy is it didn't even feel like work....which I guess is all you can ask for in a job!
