Day 7/30: Happy Valentine's Day!

Sunday, February 14, 2010

so... I just finished an hour workout of weights and some cardio mixed in. It was great... ! I love endorphins!

I must be honest and say this valentine has not gone the way I wished it would... but instead of allowing my tears to turn to depression I decided to be proactive and make this life exactly what I want it to be! and that starts with BETTERING myself! I will celebrate the ultimate LOVE today! SELF-LOVE (and God's Love of course) :-) So I got up, lifted weights, rode the exercise bike, danced and felt like a million bucks. I also studied and am going to eat soup and beets for dinner! lol

I have to run, going to a Romeo and Juliet Ballet at 7! Should be fun! :-D

Have a beautiful Valentine's day. Remember: To the World you may be just ONE PERSON, but to one person you may be the WORLD! Or something like that!

Lot's of LOVE!!! emoticon

    What a great pattern to inspire me: you chose not being controlled by emotions, but used them as a launch pad for positive ACTION. Good for you! Three cheers! Thanks for the uplift!!!

Day 6/30: I Choose.

Saturday, February 13, 2010

I choose
to be the best that I can be
I choose
to be optimistic in evertything, I do
My past don't dictate who I am.... yea
I choose.
- Lyrics from India Arie.

------

I awoke this morning realizing that there are things I want to change. I am so busy most of the time... They told us 3rd year of medical school would be harder than we were used to and that's fine... but the lack of time is quite amazing. Most days we are working 12-14 hours then expeccted to go home and study... it's hardto study when you are already exhausted. Add needing to clean my apartment so I can have some kind of peace, spending time with my pup, exercising, eating healthy foods, sparking, staying somewhat connected to friends, boyfriend, and family and that doesn't leave me with very much time for me.

But I must find a way to make it work.., and therefore, I am spending this a.m. cleaning/ decluttering my room. My apartment is way too messy for my liking so in an effort to remove the chaos around me, and get some peace for my environment I'm going to declutter as quickly as I can, then study (I have to pass on my friends bday party today because I feel like crap... and already am pretty overextended)


I choose to give myself the room I need to grow, to be patient when I struggle, to understand that I am doing the best I can and considering what I need to juggle I am doing pretty well.
I choose to LOVE myself unconditionally and do things that make ME happy. I choose to allow myself to make mistakes, learn from them, forgive myself, and as quickly as possible to move on. I choose to allow BEAUTY in my life on a regular basis. I choose to continuously re-focus on my health goals and to recognize that I WILL reach my goals, as long as I keep trying.

I'm off to clean and study... have a good one! I will write later and let you know about cals etc.

It's going to be a BEAUTIFUL day! So take a moment to enjoy your surroundings. My goal on top of everything else, is to find something unexpectantly beautiful and take a picture of it!

    Hi. Keep doing what you're doing to sort out what is essentialand what is not for this time in your life--and dump what is not, at least for now. Take a deep breath; you're gettin this done!

Day 5

Friday, February 12, 2010

Not much to say today... eventually these will get exciting to read... hopefully, but I just got home from celebrating my friend's bday. I am sick. trying to fight this cold. No workout. Didn't eat that healthy today... but I didn't drink any alcohol at dinner so hopefully that saved some unneeded cals. Going to sleep now, but wanted to stay committed to my 30 day blog challenge.

Have a good night spark.

Day 4/30: SNEEZY~

Thursday, February 11, 2010

Sure hope I'm not getting sick.... It's been snowing quite a bit here! And I've been sneezing every few minutes... and been pretty darn sleepy too.

I'mn thinking about volunteering with the local professional cheerleading team in my city... that should be fun! I would love to dance but just missed the tryouts and med school doesn't really afford me a lot of free time :-( sadly... but we will see how this all works out!

I woke up and did 35 mins on the bike this a.m. did crunches 'm too big? sigh that sucks. but anyway such is life. I'll keep working towards my goal, eating right and exercising!

I am happy that I brought my lunch to work today and actually ATE it! lol! then I had 1/2 a burrito and some chips for dinner. Oh well. I'll add up the cals hopefully it will be within limits!

Goodnight-time to keep studying!

Day 3/30: WHAT a day...

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

So.... the good news is I woke up at 6 to do a 3 mile run! [45 mins exercise all together] Felt good all day.

Now, it was a blizzard outside and honestly school/work should have been cancelled. :-/ But I decided I was a dedicated student and drove to school anyway. My 12 min drive turned into a 40 min battle to get to school made it safely and was ready to have a somewhat good day! Thankful for those endorphins! I went to the trunk to find an umbrella to get up the hill... and guess what, LOCKED THE DAG ON KEYS IN THE TRUNK! ARG... so I just held mytongue preceeded to walk up the hill .5 miles in the snow and get to work since I was a little late....
ALL this before 8:45 a.m. At 9 a.m. I get an email from school saying we can go home. (well, I CANT because my keys are in the trunk).

Long story short my BF saved the day, picked me up took me to the Honda dealership and I bought a 28 dollar DOOR key only (when it was supposed to cost 7 dollars). [ Which I felt so bad for because he had a paper due... which he did get done by the way! yay! ] ***THE BEST PART OF THIS STORY IS.... WHEN I got back to my car I realized... thoughI HAD locked the keys in the trunk, I had also left ALL the doors UNLOCKED!

WOO HOOO for a crazily ironic day. And obviously I wish I had just checked the doors... but somewhere in the hectic morning rushed I didn't. :-( al;'s well that ends well and at least I am safe. :-D


Have a good one everyone!

    Sounds like a crazy day, but at least it didn't deter you from you journey.

    Yep, that was a wild day. I have had 'em like that, and all you can say is, "I survived!" I'm proud of you for exercising so early and it sounds like you didn't let the frustration get to you TOO much. emoticon
