I have to be up super early tomorrow (like, 3am or so), so I'm going to keep this very brief and just post the pictures I took yesterday. Not much has changed from my last post--still fighting belly fat and love handles, still wishing I didn't ... Read more
An Unexpected Strength Test
This past weekend, the medical school had their annual intramural tournament known as College Cup. I consider this "the most wonderful time of the year" as it allows people to showcase their skills in events such as Iron Chef, inner tube water ... Read more

This post is a few days late, because I've been hella busy. Gonna keep this short, mostly because my first one got deleted before I could upload.
I've been tracking intermittently for the past few weeks, partly because of general busyness ... Read more

I was home over the past week on break. A while before, I'd decided to experiment with not tracking, to see if I could handle it. After 2 years of tracking (and feeling like a slave to it sometimes), I thought that I might have learned enough ... Read more

*sigh* I honestly don't feel like writing much today. Not much has changed in the past month. My schedule is less hectic now that I'm on a less stressful rotation, but I'm still struggling to find time for the things I need to ... Read more

I've been on surgery rotation from mid-March until the beginning of May. Even though I knew this rotation is one of the hardest in med school (if not THE hardest), I still planned to work out as much as possible. The first 2 weeks, this was do... Read more

Happy February! I'm happy to report that even in the midst of constant (and stressful) step 1 studying, I've still managed to exercise every day. I finished the Blogilates beginner calendar + the last few days in January, and I'm pumped for #F... Read more
