I took my test yesterday :-) And came home and got some rest basically! Today... I slept in til 1 pm... :-D It felt sooo great! Still sleepy though... I did 1 mile when I woke up. I treated myself to a movie today - last three years? - and bought a CD to celebrate finishing my exam! :)
This is a random blog so there is not point lol....
I've been thinking, I have been a cheerleader since I was 4 and I LOVE CHEERLEADING! So, a secret goal of mine is to try otu for a professional or Semi-pro cheerleading team once I graduate from medical school. I mean, there may be SOME free time in residency. And either way... trying out doesn't mean you'll be on the team. So... to achieve this goal, I FIRST have to get back to tip top shape, which I have been trying to do anyway! And I'm going to take adult dance classes so I can keep up with my dance moves.
Truth is, if I never get to try out for a team... it'll still be FUN to have a goal to strive towards that isn't SOLELY weight based!
Hope you all had a great week, I AM SOOOOOO happy to be done with that exam. Lord knows, I hope I did well!

I am a Beautiful Bombshell in the making.
I am more than what meets the eye
sometimes underestimated, sometimes insecure
but something that I am is loving, my heart is pure.
I am gorgeous in the making
I am fitter than I seem
I am working while you're sleeping
I'll give my all to achieve my dream
Hey Spark Friends,
I just wanted to stop by to let you all know I am STILL hanging in there. Still working hard towards my goal and I think I may have lost a few pounds. I am planning to start running again, I can thank my sis for that. She ran a 1/2 marathon and I'm proud of her. I wanted to run when I saw they were still allowing registration but it was HER day and I was there to supporT! plus I hadn't trained! lol.
I have a torn Labrum aka "HIP socket is hurting badly "and makes it hard to run right now, but I am going to start slow and work on endurance and strength... I figure if I have done 2 marathons and 2 1/2 marathons there is a runner in me, and taking my time to heal my hip is OK. :-)
This weekend, I realized that I know a LOT about weight loss. I know so much that I'm TIRED of knowing more , I just want to DO that which I know. I don't need to read another book or buy another DVD. ALL I need to do, is do what I know to do. When I get my body moving, I do exercises that strengthen my body and work up a sweat and it is not a struggle but when I try to force myself to do a DVD I get bored and stop. So maybe the lesson is that you should do what works and do it often!
I have my first Residency Interview on THURSDAY of this week! YAY!!! So, studying and working out and residency interview! Going to be a busy week but I'll Make it Happen!
It's time to rise to the occasion and bring in the new year in style!!!!!!! DON'T GIVE UP NOW. THE RACE IS NOT OVER. IT IS NOT TOO LATE. FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO LOVE THE LIFE YOU LIVE!
LOL I'm a little hype tonight! Ok, back to studying.

I use the small plates that came with the plates I bought... the big ones just seem HUGE to me :-) And no, I didn't do some professional presentation... but it sure was YUMMY!
My dinner from Last night. It's my re-enactment of Jason Deli's Pollo mexicano LOL! medium baked potato, 2 oz of chicken 1/4 cup of cheese. YUM!
Oh and I am committing to measuring every thing I eat for the next week. Might be a bit tedious... but being accountable is essential to seeing a loss on the scale!
Less than 8 weeks til the New Year... I'm making it count! You should too :-D
Oh and I didn't sleep last night... still up at 4:30 am, so I'm going to the gym to go for a run. :-/ last week this would have been 5:30 so, it's ok to workout right? I'm planning to sleep after that. Then wake up and go study. :-D

I am up late and wanted to blog really quickly before bed.
Today marks the 2 month mark until the new year and I plan to make the most of EACH day. :) I reached my 1/2 October goal and lost 4 lbs in the last 2 weeks... So that gives me a head start for November.
Now's a great time to take a look at your New Years Resolutions and see which goals you can MAKE HAPPEN in the next 2 months. You can do it. We can do it. I can do it.
So my 2 month goals are as such. Make a BIG dent in my weight loss goal for the year. I know I may not reach my goal completely before 1/1/11 but the thing I won't do is give up. We often fail to do what we can do because we fear it will not be enough. When in reality, starting NOW is the best chance you have to actually reaching your goals. I wasn't feeling that great earlier today, I had a bad allergic reaction to something and my right eye got swollen, teary, and I was having major sneeze attacks BUT I decided that I needed to do something active no matter what. I set out to run 5 miles and I ran 5.25 miles. MISSION accomplished.
Sometimes you have to just do it.
My 2 months goals:
get OUT of the house. Winter time sometimes causes me to Isolate myself.... maybe in an attempt to shield myself from the cold? lol. Or maybe because I have been super stressed with life these days... but staying in the house won't cure my problems. So, I'm headed out and planning to do as much as possible outside of the house. So that means, studying in the library (where I focus better), going to church on Sundays, going to the gym, and exercising outside while the weather still permits!
 dress up and do my best to like how I look EVERY day. again, I'm trying to fight this mood I've been in. It's hard studying every single day, and stressing the days you aren't studying... so, I'm going to reward myself with the little things... like, looking pretty while studying! Who says you can't have a pedicure party after studying all day! YAY! :-)
 Focusing for the next 3 weeks on this exam that I am studying for... and then, having fun on a REGULAR basis. I have 6 months left of medical school and the stress is weighing down on me a bit. but, I know that exercise really improves my mood.... so between that, and getting around people I enjoy, I will do my best to counteract this funk I've been under.
 eating healthy foods... less fried junk, more fruits, veggies, and lean meats. Prepare my meals at home, pack them, plan ahead. IF I want results in 2 months I am going to have to be meticulous and intentional with my actions!!! PLAN!
exercising daily even if only for 20 mins. I am aiming for much more than 20 mins of course. but there is NO excuse for not taking 20 mins for a sweat session. It can be just dancing in the living room if need be!
 losing 14 pounds in the next 2 months. This I can't control directly... but I can control the other things which will hopefully lead to my ultimate goal of weight loss!
Ok, SPARKIES... we've got 2 months, LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!! What will YOU do in the next 2 months!?
