I have been certified in CPR for 15 years now.
CPR can save lives and although I hope I never have to perform CPR it feels great to know that I have the knowledge to do so.
The closest I have ever been to saving someone’s life was when I was a lifeguard. I had to jump in and pull out a boy from the deep end after he hit his head on the diving board.
Last night I spent 2 hours doing an online portion of my CPR certification. This is a new learning course the Red Cross has started and I’m a huge fan of it.
Sometimes in group settings I get distracted but by doing the course at home I could go at my own pace and I felt 100% focused. The new online program has tons of great videos with real life situations that make it easy to follow and refresh my learning!
While studying I snacked on a couple Fudgy Chocolate Protein Bites!
I passed the online portion of my test, and I finish the rest of my course with hands on training at the YMCA this Friday!
On a different note, I ate a really delicious dinner last night before I started studying. We had Chicken Stir Fry with Brown Rice.
I quickly made this meal with 1 package of chicken breast, 1 bag of trader joe’s stir fry mix, and 1/2 bag of stop and shop asian stir fry blend, plus 1 cup chicken broth, 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp teriyaki and 1/4 cup of fresh pineapple. (add more soy/teriyaki to taste)
It was pretty simple & delicious!
Do you know CPR? If so, how long have you been certified?
Are you a fan of stir-fry?
