Hey friends!! I took my Family Medicine shelf exam on Friday so now I have a whole week off before I start internal medicine. A few friends and I are driving down to my parents' house in Hilton Head today and I cannot wait to spend a week by the pool and beach. We're going to drive a little north tomorrow to see the eclipse too! Today I'm sharing a few things I've been loving lately - article, clothes, makeup, flowers and more! Enjoy! Good Reads (FYI I share these on my Facebook page . . .
I finally remembered to do a Med School Day In The Life in my last week of Family Medicine! This post follows a Monday, which was one of my two full days in clinic. Everyone has different Family Medicine assignments, so the schedules can be drastically different. I lucked out with my schedule and ended up with two full days and two half days each week (plus Wednesday when we had a full day of class and small groups.) I still feel like I learned a ton and got great experience, so it made for . . .
I don't normally post specifically about Beautycounter, but I had to share that the 5 Minute Face finally released today! I had been wanting to get nearly everything in this set, and when If found out they were bundling it up I knew I had to wait. But now it's HERE and I am so pumped! Five Minute Face The 5 Minute Face includes the six essentials for a quick, fresh-faced look: Tint Skin -- Best seller! Concealer pen Eyebrow pencil -- filling in my eyebrows has quickly become . . .
I'm passionate about wellness and preventative medicine. It's why I like primary care. I've learned a lot about different dietary approaches from my eating disorder recovery, training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and just through running this blog for the past 7 years. I love exercise and have tried almost everything out there, including distance running, Crossfit, spinning, pilates, and of course yoga. So I was really interested to see how doctors talked about diet and exercise . . .
I'm a few months into clinical rotations and getting used to wearing real people clothes to work each day. Long time readers remember that I used to share my work outfit every day back in my former marketing life (feels like a lifetime ago!). It was nice to be able to wear workout clothes to class for a few years, but I really do enjoy putting together cute outfits! Getting dressed for work is different now for a few reasons - there are more restrictions to clothing as a med student, both . . .
I don't talk about my eating disorder all that much anymore because it gratefully isn't part of my day-to-day life. But I still get tons of emails about it! The "I Got It Back" post remains one of my most viewed. The most common question I get about getting my period back is, "How much weight will I have to gain?" And it makes me sad. It's a really normal question and one I know I asked as well. People with eating disorders and often times people with Hypothalamic . . .
There are only three days left of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!! It ends on the 6th (Sunday) and there is still so much great stuff left. Like...I almost was hoping it'd be sold out so I wouldn't be so tempted to buy it all! But between the workout clothes, awesome gifts (Christmas will sneak up soon!) and tons of great home items it's going to be hard to completely resist. I'm pretty sure at least one more pair of Zella leggings will have to be purchased. Here are the things left that I'm . . .
Heyyy everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. I was lucky enough to take Friday off and get in a trip to visit Brittany and Laura. Brittany is my best friend from when I lived in Louisville, and Laura is my best friend from Notre Dame. I usually try to get to them at least twice a year and this is going to be my last chance until the holidays. PLUS we had a big birthday to celebrate in Indianapolis! Louisville First stop was Louisville where I arrived just in time for some delicious . . .
Hi from Indianapolis! I just drove up from a day with Brittany in Louisville, and this weekend is all bout celebrating my best friend LB's 30th! I'm excited for lots of yoga, paddle boarding, girl talk and wine. I wanted to share a few things quickly with you today: 1 - Pound My first article for STLMag.com is up! I'll be occasionally contributing to their health column, and for this first one I tried out a POUND class. It's a choreographed workout using drum sticks that you bang around. . . .
Ahhhh the dating post. I've put this off. We all want to talk about dating, apparently! And that's normal. In our twenties we are pretty hardwired to be searching for a partner. Have you heard of Erikson's Psychosocial Development Theory? We are smack dab in the middle of the intimacy vs. isolation period where we are looking for romance and asking, "Will I be loved?" And if that search isn't going well it can be really, really frustrating. A change from previous generations, only . . .
