A Letter to People Afraid of the Doctor
Friday, October 28, 2016      2 comments

Dear patient, I know it's hard to sit across from me as I talk up exercise and healthy eating. I know you dread coming to the doctor because something you try to ignore will be thrown in your face, and you're sick of feeling judged. I know ... Read more

Hello all of my dear spark friends in the internet world. 2 years have flown by since my last blog post. I can't believe it's been that long! Here's the summary of what's happened: I started med school. I knew it would be hard, but n... Read more

How the mighty have fallen. Just kidding. Only my tummy has. But for serious, I have "backslid" a bit over the past couple of months. Some life events haven't been kind to my healthy habits. Neither has my episodic depression. H... Read more
"Hungry For Change" review
Saturday, March 23, 2013      6 comments

While flipping through Netflix last night, I found the documentary "Hungry for Change." I shrugged and watched it, not expecting much (I liked Food, INC but after I researched some of the facts, I found some of it was exaggerated propaganda). "H... Read more

Whoa this week has been crazy. Car breaking down, two snow days for my daughter, a test, a lab report, studying for tests and quizzes... It's just been nuts. I spoke too soon in my previous blog when I said I could still train for my 5K ... Read more

Hi all, Today my city was part of Snowmaggedon. Hilarious. They shut down both mine and my daughter's schools last night even though it didn't start snowing here until 11 AM today. Now there's a good amount of snow on the ground. ... Read more

... Because I'm in ONEderland!!!! That's right, for the first time in years I'm below 200 pounds! I am so glad I have made the healthy changes to my mind and habits that have led me to this point. It's so crazy (yet reassuring) to be... Read more
Down but not out

This week I have felt slow as molasses on a winter's day. I just don't have the energy or mental clarity I'm used to. It's frustrating! Especially when I have about a million things to do for school this week. To top things off, I have not ... Read more

I'm in the 2nd week of my 5k training and it's going okay. I didn't think running would be this hard to "get," but I'm enjoying it. My knees are doing okay, but sometimes my right one bothers me. I need to do some strengthening exercises I suppo... Read more

So I posted yesterday that I signed up for a 5k that will take place in May. I have a confession to make: I'm not a runner. I did the couch to 5 k program a few (5) years ago, but only got about half way through it. I don't think I wa... Read more

I am FINALLY done with my two tests, quiz, lab report, and Biochem assignment for the week! I feel relieved! One of my teachers put the grades up an hour after the test, and it was probably the WEIRDEST testing session I ever had. It was for Imm... Read more

So I've had a not-so-great start to the week. I'll preface it by saying that I have 2 exams, a quiz, and a lab report due this week. The exams will be difficult, and I have been studying for awhile but not "getting it" like normal. Oh well,... Read more

Hi everyone! Bad news: I feel gross :-( I have a bad headache, and my shoulders/neck/back are killing me. Ok I got that out of the way. Last night I felt sick and accidentally fell asleep on my sofa at 9:30... I usually don't go to be... Read more
