I recently purchased the Sunny Snowy laptop tote bag to replace my current laptop work bag.

I was seeking a lightweight shoulder bag with a lot of room. My current Coach bag as a longer strap and was placing a lot of weight directly onto my shoulder due to the length of the strap. In addition, my Coach work bag is heavier due to the leather. After searching for about 2 weeks, I finally decided to purse the Sunny Snowy laptop bag due to the size, 4.7 stars our to 5 and with over 1400 reviews. With the DIMENSIONS(LxWxH):17.1″L*5.5″W*14.5″H,Weight:Only 1.23lb, it this was the perfect bag. The shoulder strap length is perfect!

(Warning please excuse the no make photos)

I love the front pocket as you can tell it provides me easy access to my cell phone.

Inside the bag, there is a lot of room and plenty of space for my laptop.

Nice zipper area inside to hold keys or other items you want to secure
My laptop fits nicely inside and has a Velcro strap to secure my laptop

I absolutely love the tote and I personally give a rating of 5 out of 5! Highly recommend

Walking To Prevent Heart Diease

This week’s American Heart theme is to move more. Move more and sit less! Building into daily activity is one step at a time. Walking is one of the easiest ways to move more! For most people, it’s safe, easy to stick with, and low- or no-cost. It doesn’t require any special skills or equipment. For such a simple activity, it has so many benefits.

The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week. That is 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.

If it’s been awhile since you been active, simply start walking. Park further away to increase your daily steps. Grab a friend or family member and go for a walk. Start slow but also listen to your body, if are experience any discomfort, stop and discuss with your doctor. Other non-impact exercise is swimming and cycling to incorporate into moving more.

Research has shown that walking at a lively pace at least 150 minutes a week can help you:

  • Think better, feel better and sleep better.
  • Reduce your risk of serious diseases like heart disease, stroke, diabetes and several types of cancer.
  • Improve your blood pressure, blood sugar and blood cholesterol levels.
  • Increase your energy and stamina.
  • Improve your mental and emotional well-being and and reduce risk of depression.
  • Improve memory and reduce your risk of dementia.
  • Boost bone strength and reduce your risk of osteoporosis.
  • Prevent weight gain

American Heart has a great article “why is Walking the Most Popular form of Exercise”. Which provides additional resources.

Want to create your own walking club American Heart has a article on this topic. Start or Join a Walking Club

Adding a pedometer is a great tool to help increase those steps. Pedometers aren’t 100% accurate but I believe it’s a great tool to help gauge your daily steps and set goals week to week to increase your weekly average steps. I love my Fitbit but here are some other budget friendly watches

What Did You Choose Today?

“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.” Kevyn Aucoin

The things I have experienced while waiting in the emergency room department as a patient or visitor.

Someone who works in healthcare, I find it very interesting to sit back and watch as a patient or visitor. I have gathered a few events as a patient or visitor during a few emergency room visits over the years

1. Walking into the waiting room to see a full waiting room. You know its going to be a long evening

2. Asking your daughter if she farted multiple times because you keep smelling poop .

Maybe I should have packed me something like the Squatty Potty Unicorn Gold Toilet Spray, Fruity Booty

3. The care plan board has my daughter misidentified as her name isn’t Jerry.

Next time bring my own expo markers to change the board. But thank goodness no one is looking at the useless board on the wall anyways.

4.  Finding expired items in the room because you have spent way to much time in the room. Eek!!! And no I wasn’t in the drawers, these are items on the hanging on the wall.

Let me tell you staff aren’t very happy when you point it out but you are pointing it out to be kind and helpful.

5.  Hearing a kid or baby screaming or crying and making you want to cry

6. Having fun with the bed once the controller is discovered

7. Hear screaming and then hearing staff telling them to just relax. You wonder what is going on and your imagination gets carried away

8. Your friend running away or dancing in the hallway in their gown. Or better yet, having a friend on a hold and watching them run down the hallway in their gown while on guard watch. Uh, guard where is my friend?

9. Kids touching everything, crawling on the floor or licking objects. Every parents nightmare.

10. Someone upset that they are still waiting and at the triage desk asking for the 100th time when will they be next.

11. Discharged and ready to head home, I want food!!!
