Jumped up out the bed... Dusted my shoes off

Sunday, April 25, 2010

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.

Mwah! emoticon

    That is awesome! I remember those dreaded physcial fitness challenges in P.E. and JROTC, and how I could never get at least one in, and how bad I would feel! That is such a major accomplishment for you and it makes me want to set a goal to do one, just to make my old JROTC instructor proud :)

Day 7, 8, 9, 10 + ChangeOne lunch + declutter :-)

Sunday, April 18, 2010

Forgive the busy title! lol...

Hey guys! Haven't blogged in a while but all is well! I'm still working hard, down about 4.5 lbs since a recent jump in weight for an unknown reason! .5 lbs until I can celebrate and get my first mini-goal gift!

What I'm proud of: I completed 3 strength workouts (like I planned) last week, 7 days of cardio (2 light days), and one day of yoga + one pilates session
I passed on fries at Chick-fil-a and only got the grilled chicken sandwich, I am sticking to the ChangeOne diet and BECK diet solution! And... I'm continuing to re-dedicate myself to eating clean healthy foods. :-)

What I will work on this week:
*continuing to declutter my new apartment. I need to do a yard sale or give away my clothes to good will.
* Bringing Lunch to work all 5 days! My goal for this week is to not add ANY additional salt or sugar to my foods (which means I may have to leave coffee out for a week OR use splenda.)
* 5 days of cardio. 3 days of strength, 1 flexibility/ yoga or pilates
* Journal
* sleep 7 hrs a night.

I'm rushing right now, but I'll be back to fill you all in later!

Today, I spread the spark.

Thursday, March 18, 2010

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!

    Great job.

You have to admit spark is the fastest easiest simplest way to get someone to lose weight safely as long as they depend more on the official info than on what people say they do!

I just found out that my brother is a spark people drop out (I should encourage him to join again). It has done me a world of good...

Keep on sparking.

DAy... 23? lol who's counting!

Thursday, March 04, 2010

So, sometimes you gotta do what's right for you even if people don't understand. And quite honestly... I'm tired of explaining myself! LOL

now that it's off my chest.

Today was a good day, I'm learning more and more how LITTLE you can eat if you eat fried/fast foods. I did good though, since they keep feeding us junky food at school/work in the DR office all day, I am skipping dinner (ate some fruit) just so I can stay in the 1400 range. Will have some tea too. It's late and I'm sleepy so don't realyl feel like I'm missing out

Also jumped on the treadmill for ~ 40 mins burned almost 400 cals. So hopefully i'm making a dent in my energy sttores(aka FAT) LOL

Hope all is well with you guys! And thank you to all the spark people out there!!

    YESSS! I definitely stay away from fast food because I can eat so much MORE when I eat healthy foods! I'm all about quantity. I love the feel of a huge bowl of salad in front of me more than having a 1/4 of a cheeseburger or something. Good for you keeping in your calorie ranges despite the junk food at work! Keep up the great work!!!

    "I'm tired of explaining myself!" I agree. I am learning all you can do is be true to yourself - and bump the rest! Bump it. I am reading way too much into this statement. LOL.

Anyway, I am happy you are figuring ways to make it happen with all the fast food around. That is a feat - for sure.

Keep cranking it out, doc. Cheers.
