Remember when I posted this video?[youtube.com=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MpUYhVlTjs]
Well I took your advice and amazing support and completely stopped blogging for the last few weeks… and I have to tell you- this is probably the last time you will hear from me for a month.
My surgical subspecialty rotation ended today. I was on ophthalmology and we took our exam this afternoon. It was actually a super laid back rotation with great hours, but SO many other things have been dominating my schedule.
- Scheduling 4th year core clerkships
- Meeting with my advisor
- Emailing EVERYONE under the sun
- Working on extra-curriculars
- Kyle’s 28th Birthday!!
- Planning away rotations for 4th year
- Figuring out what I’m going to do with the rest of my life
- Sleeping- can’t leave that one out. I sleep a lot.
My food lately has been delicious! I’ve been eating really healthy things at home like greek yogurt with blackberries and puffin cereal:
Eggs and veggies:
Salad with chicken and sweet potatoes- plus a Designer Whey protein bar on the side!
Kyle and I celebrated his birthday with Surf and Turf- AMAZING!
He also got some golf-clubs and new golf shoes and was a very happy camper!
On the unhealthy side of things, the ophthalmology clinic is constantly stocked with mini candy bars like snickers and twix. There are generally cookies or donuts or pizza or something else bad. And there’s always this evil trail mix that has almonds and cashews and chocolate chips…
It’s funny how when you eat candy all day for 3 weeks you gain 5 lbs…
My pants are tight. Time to get back to reality and leave candy land.
On the fitness side of things, my workouts have been sporadic with lots of cardio and some at home videos. You can always follow my workouts on my log.
Also, it’s way more fun to follow me on Instagram. I post stuff like this:
Follow me and I’ll follow you back so we can keep in touch when I’m living in the hospital on my surgery rotation! @adoctorinthehouse.
Today starts my general surgery rotation. When we found out where we were assigned and what surgeon we would be with, I asked around and found another student who was with the same surgeon a few months ago.
This is what he said:
So that is how medical school took over my life. For the next 5 weeks I have accepted that I will be in the hospital 24/7 learning as much as I possibly can, soaking it all up, and not worrying about food, fitness, blogging, my hair-d0, anything. I will of course try to stay as healthy as possible (meaning- no more candy).
I also have some ridiculously good guest posts lined up for the next few weeks.
So please don’t forget about me!!!
I love you! I will be back!! I will come back a surgeon!!
Lots and lots of love,
