Thank you Lord Jesus God up above. I needed a BREAK!!!
Summer has come and it's almost gone and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I came home with plans to study all summer and well… I studied a little. I mostly did nothing which is what I needed to do.
Since starting medical school, life has been turned upside down. It's difficult keeping up with family, friends and the hobbies I enjoy. In January I vowed to do better. I stayed on track for a few months and then slipped back into bad habits…….again.
Let's just say, I'm still searching for balance while in school.
What did I do this summer?
I've been able to catch-up with some of my favorite people and meet new ones for the first time 😍
I've spent time with my baby girl pepper.
Let's not forget about my mom's dog Simba, who refused to let me move.
I went to the beach.
And hung out with this little one.
I made it to my grand-aunt's 70th surprise birthday party.
Best of all, I got a chance to check out the local library, pleasure read, nap and hangout at the pool. 📚
I'm heading back soon. I'm excited to see my friends and to get back into the books. Before I leave, I intend to make a new game plan for the upcoming semester. Last semester got tough towards the end and I complete lost track of my sleep, diet and fitness. As a result I'm sure I put on 15 -20 pounds 😱.
Have you ever heard of the freshman 15? Well, I was warned about the med school 30. If I continue on the same track, I'll hit it. Luckily, I'm aware of my problem and I'm motivated to reverse my path. It's hard staying in shape for most of us here because all we do is sit and study. On top of that we pound coffee all day, skip out on sleep and eat terrible.
This term, I'm commissioning a few of my classmates for motivation. Yeah, cause I need help staying on track. I have a workout buddy and another friend willing to share healthy meals with me.
Striving to make practical changes for healthier lifestyle.
