I haven’t done a weekly recap for a few weeks, so we have a little to catch up on! I’m finally home with no travel for a while, so having my weekends to actually get work done is nice. I stayed in last night to study and work on blog/Beautycounter stuff. Today I am going to be working and then babysitting. And tomorrow I have weekend call on Labor & Delivery. Should be a productive weekend!
Here’s my (overdue) weekly recap!
I’ve also been wearing my ponte pants to work a lot. How did I not get these earlier!? They are just nicer, thicker work-appropriate leggings. I will be wearing these so much this winter with boots that I should probably get a second pair…
I made egg muffins to bring to the hospital for breakfast — just combined a dozen eggs, 2 chopped chickens sausages, spinach and shredded cheese, whisked it together, poured it into muffin tins and baked until they were cooked through.
I’ve been saving time prepping lunches by just having hospital cafeteria salads for lunch
I got some salmon and frozen tilapia to have with veggies and avocado for dinner
I tried matcha tea for the first time (inspired by Lee from America)!! I like it, but the caffeine kick isn’t enough for me at the moment. Maybe one day I’ll wean down to just that amount? A girl can dream…
Let’s see how much I can remember…
W: Burn Bootcamp plyometric day — does your city have Burn? One just opened here and I signed up for a free month. It is AWESOME, truly the best all around, killer workout, but it’s so far away that it’s not remotely feasible for me long term. So sad! Begging them to open a location closer to the city.
Th: Yoga at metro
Fri: Burn Bootcamp Leg Day
Sat: 2 hour yoga class at Metro!
Mon: New-to-me yoga class at Yoga Source (Classpass)
Wed: Hot yoga at Yoga Six (ClassPass)
Th: Shred415 (Classpass)
Fri: Burn Boot Camp arms and back
My time on reproductive endocrinology and infertility was way too short! The Thanksgiving break really put a dent in the two week rotation. The doctor I was working with was a total blast — super fun and funny, but also a great teacher that let me do a lot. I got a lot more confident with speculum exams, removed IUDs, and did a few Paps. Unfortunately the patients I was going to get to do an IUD insertion and an HSG on didn’t work out for various reasons. But aside from the procedures, I learned a lot about infertility counseling and other reproductive hormonal issues.
My next two weeks are on Gyn Surgery, where I believe we’ll be doing some things like D&Cs and hysterectomies. The hours are earlier and longer, but it will be neat to be back in the OR!
On the non-clinical side of things, I finished my first draft of my eating disorder project and also did a little project on social media and medicine.
What I’m Loving
I hit 10k followers on Instagram!! That’s pretty amazing. I love sharing smaller snippets of my life along with some motivation and inspiration over there. Thanks for following along!
Beautycounter has been just INCREDIBLE lately. I feel so lucky that Teri introduced me to the opportunity — to work in health and wellness in a different way, with such a fabulous company, and help myself out financial while in school. I’m starting an email list soon to give more specific info about ingredients and products.
I got the best Christmas candle at HomeGoods on a whim. It says it’s “Northern Lights Candles” and the scent is Balsam & Holly Berry. You should go get it! I have it lit constantly!
Still obsessed with my Vionic slip ons. Definitely one of my best purchases in a while. SO comfy and so cute! I throw them on constantly.
I’ve been on a major psychiatry kick lately after talking to a few good friends. I’m just so passionate about mental health and find the mind so fascinating! I’m still not 100% set on it, but it’s feeling good right now.
I am SO CLOSE to finishing Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix (I restarted it a while ago!) and am also really loving This Is Us.
I’ve also just really loved putting together gift guides. I adore gift giving, and finding such great ideas is so fun. I wish I could give them all!! — Clothes & Accessories — Health & Wellness — Home & Office — Students & Medicine

Have a great weekend!!
