Yes, yes I know that the official beginning of Spring is not coming until March 20th for this year, but when you live in AZ it just feels like it comes sooner with the warm weather. All this week we have weather predicted to be in the upper 70's/low 80's. Winter is my favorite time of year here in AZ, but I am excited for my balcony flowers to be rejuvenated by the warmer weather! After my weight loss in 2012, my new goals are to get more physically fit and start incorporating some aerobics into my daily routine for the Spring.
As I have mentioned throughout my blogs, I am a 3rd year medical student and currently go around to various hospitals working on clerkships in different fields of medicine. During January and most of February I was working Labor and Delivery. While this was tons of fun, it was very energy draining! It was extremely hard to stick to a good nutritional plan when you are leaving the house at 4:45AM and coming home at 6PM with some days no time to break for lunch! The constant poor snacking throughout the day and then huge dinners when I would come home at night led to me gaining about 10 pounds back I am sorry to say. It is alright, however, because I have a plan for attack to shed those pounds off again and start sculpting those deeply hidden muscles underneath. With Summer and swimsuit season right around the corner it is time to get serious!
