Through the fire!

Monday, June 29, 2009

Hey everyone! I'm BAAAACCCCKKK not that I was gone... lol. but for the first time in 24 months I have NO responsibility for a while. :-D It's summer time and I get a chance to enjoy it!

I have been doign great keeping up with the exercise and though my diet has not been perfect I managed to lose weight while studying for boards! And those of you who aren't familiar with that, let's just say it's a VERY VERY stressful time where you basically study 14 hours a day eat sleep and not much else! so I'm proud for staying focused on school and on health!

I have a puppy named Cesar. He's a whippet and they can run 35 miles an hour! I tried taking hime on a few runs and he did pretty well but I think I'll wait until he's a little older before we go on longer runs...

I tried on a bathing suit yesterday (that my sis bought me) and it looked great!!!! and when my mom took a pic I actually could see my abs. :-D I go on a cruise in 2 weeks so I'm going to buckle down, eat clean and hopefully tone more so I can feel confident and look cute on my cruise! I know I may not be able to lose a whole lot before then but I CAN definitely prevent gaining!!!!! YAY!

  emoticon Awesome! I am so proud of you to stay on track in the midst of all that hard work. College can be an easy time to let yourself go when you have crazy hours and are focusing so hard on studies, but you overcame! That is so awesome and inspiring! I want to be you when I grow up someday LOL! Enjoy the fruits of your labor on your cruise - and tell us all about it when you get back!

After much time studying... 5 days until my National Board Exam. I am excited about the victory that God will see me through! I have studied hard and I will trust that everything is going to work out... not to mention I have 4 1/2 days to continue learning. I also have remained focus on my health... that makes me happy.

I can't wait to enjoy my 3 1/2 weeks of summer. I'm already planning my list of things I want to do! Books I want to read... exercise bootcamps and classes I want to attend and prayer/meditation/yoga I will get to enjoy!

5 more days until show time! Wish me well, send prayers if you'd like and I'll SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE!!! YAY!!!!!!!!

2 years down (I'm officially a 3rd year medical student!). 2 years until I'm officially a DOCTOR! GO ME! GO GOD! Then look out fitness, nutrition, and obesity here I come! (I want to specialize in ovesity related diseases and prevention! !)

I weighed in at 147.8 this a.m. and I'm excited! Finally moving away from 150... again. lol!


Hope all is well with all you sparkpeople!

I took my lunch break today and did 53 mins of JUMP ROPE AND strength! yay! Clearly you can't jump rope the whole time but I REALLY REALLY got my heart rate going! So... yay! Avg heart rate 136 Highest 185. (though I am working on keeping my heart rate in the SAFE zone which is no more than 85 % the max. above that you affect your hearts safe workign capacity. :-D Burned almost 400 cals. But I was working hard today and didn't even have to leave my living room! So no excuses!

I renewed my spirit yesterday and am remaining confident, postive, optimistic, and driven. Back to studying for me and I am giving this my ALL and no matter how I feel ( if i feel behind, overwhelmed, discouraged, whatever) I AM capable of doing this. and I will.

I'm sending some motivation your way!!!! WHOOOO HOOOOOOOO! Whatever you want to be in life, it is NOT to late to start! Begin acting AS IF you are exactly who you want to BE!!!!!

BFLWeek8:Self-Discipline is a beautiful thing

Thursday, May 28, 2009

*** When your mind is made up you don't have to debate. You say NO, I don't want any cookies because you know it's not in your plan. Your mind is free to think about other things."
emoticon emoticon

When you hear self-discipline do you think of all negative thoughts, self-deprivation, denial, misery?

Well I guess that's how I felt at first too but I now realize that I NEED routine in my life.. .especially when everything is stressful. I love working out, I am doing better at eating right (I have been cooking a lot of healthy things like spicy chicken/potatoes, chicken stirfry from SCRATCH!), and studying 11/hrs per day or more.

The problem is that I DO NOT HAVE TIME TO OBSESS about weight loss, working out, arguments or any other useless mind-numbing things lol. I have decided that from now until things settle, I will set a calorie limit and stick to it. I will choose when I will workout and do my best to stick with it. And hopefully learn to live in the moment because I feel that sooo much time is wasted ruminating over " how much should I work out today, what am i goign to eat, will I go over my calories, should I eat those fries., etc" For now I need some discipline.
:-D so I can focus my mental power on PASSING and SURPASSING MY EXPECTATIONS ON THIS TEST!

oH BUT i DO HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS!!! I'm back to 148.4 this a.m. which puts me definitely under 150! YAY!

My plan ( Obviously at some point I will have to sacrifice some sleep to get going with this schedule. But the truth is if you don't start somewhere you will never start! :

Wake up and exercise at 5/6 a.m.
Eat breakfast 6:30 a.m.
Study 6:30-11 a.m.
Lunch 11
Study 12-4
Break 4-7
Practice Exams 7-10
Sleep by 10:30
Calories 1250-1600 ( I added 50 cals to the end b/c sometimes I'm more hungry. My brain is eating up that glucose! )
Exercise- Whatever I can do. usually I do a FAST 3.5 mile run and try to burn atleast 300 cals. usually I do more.
Drink- Water and lots of it. Tea and coffee w/ splenda when I need it
Diet- I have been cooking at home. Eating more fruits and veggies

I know this is strict but hey it is what it is. The National exam is very serious and in the past 5 days I have felt unfocused and I NEED to get focused and serious. I will keep up my exercise. I will do my best to eat right (and I have been doing better at not eating fast food) I figure if I make a plan and stick with it I will get the results.... even if I don't constantly obsess over it!

BYE! Back to studying!
