Finally tried this beauty. Tastes ABSOLUTELY amazing although Steve said that it tastes like tobacco rolled in dirt, but he only eats sugary sugar pops so we will ignore that one :p. This choco is still very sweet by the way :)

Firstly, my skin is feeling amaaaazing after my facial. If anyone in Hamilton is looking for a beautician for waxing/skin care etc message me off anon and I will give you her contact details.

Secondly, last night I made my whole family keto pancakes. Mum gave me my Easter eggs since I’m leaving today and can’t get them this weekend. I ate most of them last night heh heh heh.

Thirdly, we went out for lunch to the vegan/raw/paleo/etc cafe. I had a chocolate peanut butter protein smoothie and the big breakfast. I really wanted to try the raw vegan banoffee pie but I wasn’t in the mood after all the Easter eggs last night.

Fourthly, I went shopping and bought a new coat and a dress and FOUR skirts ha. I am getting my winter wardrobe sorted.

And finally THE PROGRESS TEST RESULTS CAME IN AND I SCORED ABOVE AVERAGE IN MY CLASS. People actually did manage to score negatively, which is possibly because incorrect answers make you lose marks. I’m so so happy to be in the top half of my class. Ever since I got into medicine I’ve had massive imposter syndrome, feeling like I’m not smart enough to be here. The last picture shows my results for specific areas of medicine. I scored well above average in women’s health, skin, mental health and homeostasis. I scored well below average in child health, digestive and general duties. Argh I cannot explain how happy I am to have come in in the top 50%. Those people in the yellow “Excellent” group (which is the top 5% of our class, as you can see the top 5% got results ranging from 23-62%) must have some mad prior knowledge to have scored that high - most likely graduates with undergraduate degrees in biochemistry or nursing or pharmacy or public health or perhaps even physiotherapy, or potentially med students who are repeating the year. Remember this test was set at the level of a graduating doctor! My score was 17%. I know 17% of the content a graduating doctor is supposed to know!!!!

Good on you! This is amazing!

I workout less often and have gained more muscle than ever before. Lesson has been learned muscle recovery > hours spent in the gym

I can’t believe how happy I am today!!

- I am working - 5 hours in to my 30 hours of working this weekend.
- the best thing I’ve learned with enjoying working weekends is to maximise active pursuits when not at work. I went for a 2.8km run for 15 minutes this morning - not so much as a workout but simply to have empowered myself to get out and have fresh air and “me time”. It makes such a difference and leaves me feeling all smug because heh heh heh my little run is all mine.
- I’ve been super onto it with paperwork and no one is acutely unwell and the ward is under control and oh my GOD it is incredible. Such a change from my last surgical weekend where I had two ladies with ileus’s (ilei?) and fast AF and a man with phosphate levels so low they were undetectable. Oh boy.
- I’m also working with my favourite surgical registrar and he is so friendly and approachable :)
- making the active decision to enjoy my job has been so powerful in transforming how I’ve coped with such a challenging rotation. I’m so grateful for all the support I’ve received and reading orjasmicliving and iamnotover post about their process getting to where I am now makes me realise how fortunate I am, and why I worked so hard for so many years to get here.
- happy happy happy happy
- jetski tinder date policeman is snap chatting me oh boy

You rock!

homestar123 asked: Love your blog! Do you have any recommendations for strength workouts that don't involve equipment or weights? I know squats, wall sits, and push-ups, but any other recs? Thanks! Xx

Hey! If it’s too easy to preform those exercises you can always try different variations of them like pistol or one legged squats, narrow or wide push-ups and so on… Also search for towel torture on youtube for some intense “towel workouts” :)))

I had to go and get my phone to capture this glorious moment of post workout pump. Happy Friday everyone :)

wanderlustingtwenties asked: i was curious what workouts you use for your legs? not to be a creep but you have really nice calves!

Thanks :)

you gotta to this is this order: squat and then you deadlift, and then you gotta drink a gallon of milk……. that’s the only way to get jacked….

 not really… :P 

this is what I do:

I try to lift heavy 4-5sets of 5 reps, make sure that the last rep is hard to complete. I do squats (sumo and the usual type), stiff leg dead-lifts, leg press, leg extensions…  and I eat lots of yummy food :-)
