Day 1

Here goes! This is my first official blog and at the moment I really should be getting back to studying for physiology… but I will allow myself a few more minutes to complete this entry.

Besides the ever present chaos of medical school life, I’ve decided to embark on a 3 week motivational diet in anticipation for our upcoming Christmas vacation.  The last two months of school combined with stress have accumulated an extra 6-7 lbs that I plan to lose for this vacation. As I do not have a scale at home the recording of this goal will be a bit tricky and will have to be based on the objectiveness of my clothes, ie. jeans in particular. In all fairness I think this is a better modality of tracking weight loss progress since most diet, especially mine, include a lot of exercise which equals increase muscle mass, and therefore the quantity is really not a good indicator. However, as I always try to tell my husband, my jeans never lie!

To start off, tonight I had a cup of green salad with 1/2 tsp sour cream, 1/2 cup drained tuna and half of an apple. This morning I did 30 minutes of yoga and throughout the day I stayed rather active, walking about 45 minutes of moderate speed (as well as chasing around my 2 and a 1/2 year old). So far so good, let’s hope tomorrow will be a successful, controlled, day as well!

Now back to physiology I go!
