Just one of those days. I guess.
I know I have good qualities. I know I am "worthy" of good things in life... but some how, I just don't feel up to par today.
I'm sure I'll feel better tomorrow... but today, I feel ugly. I mean... I took pictures and realistically I can see I probably look no different than I usually do... but for some reason I'm just feeling extra critical of myself. Of my not being the size I'd like to be, of my not being in a relationship that's likely headed towards marriage, of... well... of a lot of things.
My friend asked me to send him a picture of me... and you know what, I didn't do it. Why, you may ask? Because after like 5 shots... I realized none of them looked as good as I wanted them to.
And those who know me, know I'm positive.... almost always. But I'm human too... and basically I just wanted to get it off my chest. So... Maybe tomorrow will be a better day. A pretty day... a beautiful, confident day. But today, I'll rest assured that even bad days pass and working towards a goal will have to be enough UNTIL I reach it.
My picture from today! I know... it's not that bad of a pic... :-D

took a look in the mirror and said What's up, HEY!!! I'm looking Good oh!!
Lol... Just a play on a silly little song. :-D ;)
But i wanted to let everyone know that I'm BACK! As far as running goes! I'm going to start training for another 1/2 marathon and some other small races (10K's 15K's). I am getting ready to start a more strenuous part of my schooling 3 months of pediatrics and surgery = 6 day work weeks, LONG hours, and not much time for sleep, study, fun, and ME. BUT I'm going to make it happen!
My goal is to plan my meals ( I made a monthly menu), stick to it, workout 30 mins daily and get as much sleep as possible while staying on top of school work! I will make it work!
Upcoming Races I'm interested in!
June 5: Distance: 10 kilometers (6.2 miles)
Sep 5: 1/2 marathon

Yes it IS 1:31 am and YES I do have work tomorrow... but while I was cleaning up I saw my pull up bar on the floor and decided to see if it would fit in the door frame of my new apartment (didn't work in my last apartment!
And guess what? It DID fit... so playing around I pulled on the handles to see if it would hold my weight... and then proceeded to pull my ENTIRE body off the ground! I did a pull up! FINALLY! after years of trying to do a pull up by myself and years of trying to strengthen my torn rotator cuff in my "bad shoulder" I DID IT!
Now that's what fitness is about.
Not the pounds yet to be lost.
Not the clothes that may or may not fit like I'd like
BUT reaching NEW heights of health and fitness!! WOO HOOO! One pull up! and maybe not the best form, maybe my whole chin didn't get above the bar... but I DID IT!
Thank you, and goodnight! The Bombshell has left the building... off to get some beauty rest.

So as many of know, I am a medical student and my passion is preventing obesity related diseases and getting people to love themselves completely.
I had a patient today who was overwhelmed by her weight and dealing with a young baby and an unsupportive husband. I will not write anymore for security reasons but I suggested to her that she should visit the SPARKPEOPLE website and really begin to get some support in her journey. She was excited and I pointed out that she was worth the time and should spend a little effort MAKING time for herself and her happiness.
See, I spread the spark everywhere I go. I am a bright light in a dark room. lol. Don't come around if you don't want to be encouraged!
