Tell them yes!

Sunday, December 20, 2009

"All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES."


I've already cleaned 280 cals away, burned 510 cals on the elliptical, and now going to do taebo! :-)

I LOVE Christmas break!

(as far as the Examiner, I would say not to quite your day job...lol...your pay is based by the number of views your page gets so unless you have great marketing skills and know a lot of great people that will view your page, then either just do it as a hobby or because you like to write and give advice...don't expect it to pay bills

Also, they have several different topics you could write about so some areas may be better than others due to popularity)

I am thinking about taking a ballet class -- I never did it when I was a kid because I never felt skinny enough. Now I realize it might be fun -- it doesn't matter if I'll never have the bone structure to be a ballerina!

Rough Week

Saturday, December 12, 2009

hey everyone... I'll make this quick because I'm kinda tired of re-living the week I just had.

I did well with working out... woke up at 4 a.m 4/5 days last week to workout! And I'm VERY proud of that!

On the otherhand, this was SUCH a rough week at school. It was like, I was on the chopping block for EVERYTHING. and while I understand the importance of not taking things personally it's very hard to stay objective when YOU are the only one being criticized for something that all of your classmates have done.
We are just starting a new rotation, so obviously we don't know exactly what the head Dr wants/expects from us. for some reason I had to go first during our presentations EVERY SINGLE TIME. Then I got ridiculed for doing it wrong, though they never explained what they wanted, and OF COURSE my 5 team mates quickly corrected their errors (based on my getting yelled at about it) and the head Dr. never criticized their presentations at all (and several of them made the same exact error). Then my dumb classmates make some sorry excuse about how it's just a coincidence that I get criticized for the same small errors that we all made and they get away EVERYTIME!!! ARG!!!! ( they aren't dumb lol I'm just mad)Though I am trying so hard to keep a good attitude, this was a rough week, and several times I just felt like saying F*ck this. I'm done. Someone else go first. But obviously that would n't have been professional. lol.

Well, All I can do is continue to keep a good attitude and not take it personal. But I'm telling you... this weekend could not come fast enough. Christmas break can not come quick enough. Thank God I only have 1.5 years left. I HATE rude people! Oh and we've been warned that the next head Dr we have next week is EVEN worse. Sigh.

Ok. I'm moving on. Thinking about it won't help I guess. I'll just pray and move on.

    Well, at least you will be prepared for the worst as you go forward in your career! :-) You are so focused and dedicated that I know you are going to be an AWESOME doctor. Stay strong and don't let the jerks shake your confidence. Perhaps they are picking you first every time because they see the most potential in you ;-) HOpe this weekend recharged your batteries!

Sometimes it is the very best who get the criticism. I can't say anything else. I'm cheering for you to get over the finish line. emoticon

    Thank you for sharing about your rough week. I want to encourage you to keep going and work against the obstacles. Realize that in the end you are victorious. Keep your eyes on God and He will see you through. Know that the enemy wants to discourage you and wants you to quit. Hold on as you said only 1.5 years. You will be alright, Doctor.

Enjoyed your spark page...full of good ideas and very inspirational. You'll come out a better doctor for having come through this...and you'll be kinder and more understanding with both your patients and the future medical students you come into contact with!

Vision Collage: How I spent my Saturday!

Saturday, December 05, 2009

This is what I did on this very cold/rainy Saturday. I got a chance to go through a few of my million old fitness magazines and found some pictures/phrases/ and fitness routines that I really like! One thing I learned was that I prefer motivational phrases over pictures, but I have some nice pictures of Abs that I can use for motivation!

Let me know what you think!

    My husband "found" mine yesterday. It's hanging on the wall in front of my treadmill and has been for 3 months. Shows how often he goes into the guest room/gym.

Yours looks great!

    Lovely! I did mine a couple of weeks ago and felt a little ridiculous - but once I got into it the phrases were the best. Statements of my version of success that don't always have anything to do with fitness.

Yours looks inspiring.

Stop at Nothing.

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

Happy December!!!

This is the LAST month of the year and my Final Grind of 09' challenge! I am DETERMINED to bring in the new year feeling proud of ALL of the progress I have made in the year; emotionally, physically, spiritually...

I am going to try for "2 a days" 3x a week (starting Saturday- after my test)
I'm going to eat clean(which for me means to pack my lunch and prepare my meals at home)/ and continue the Beck diet plan and( stick to my diet plan)
After my exam sleep 7-8 hours a night.
drink 64 oz of h20
walk my dog everyday (at least 10 mins)
pray and journal and study as much as possible.
Clean/Declutter my apt regularly
This is just a guideline. My true goal is to learn balance/ compassion for my body/ and to give my all always!

OH and I've been taking the stairs every day in the hospital! And you'd better believe the Future Doc does a LOT of running around in that hospital! lol

I will STOP at NOTHING to get what I want. (within reason of course)
I just burned 513 cals on the Bike while studying GO ME! (@ 10:30 p.m.)
