What great morning today was. I had a solid breakfast: https://www.dosiq.com/anewsam1/eatings/51a7312c7e2c8d1576000d40

I had to be at work earlier than usual to see all patients because Dr. Powell had a funeral to go to in the afternoon. I came home around 1:00 and ate a radical lunch of liver and vegetables: https://www.dosiq.com/anewsam1/eatings/51a790507e2c8d1576000d5c

I knew I was SATISFIED after eating this, but OF COURSE I went and made a chocolate shake: https://www.dosiq.com/anewsam1/eatings/51a798787e2c8d1576000d5f

According to this sleeping app I use, Sleep Cycle (I love it!), I had 62% sleep quality last night, which is my lowest ever. I did not feel it at work. Around 2:00, after eating, I felt lethargic. I wanted to blame it on my lunch meal but that was solid. I ended up falling asleep at 5:00 for an hour.

I WOKE UP AND GOT THEM KETTLEBELL SWINGS! Followed by dinner: https://www.dosiq.com/anewsam1/eatings/51a7fc5f7e2c8d1576000da7 Why do I keep making liquid meals? Probably because they are very customizable and I can blend a wide variety of foods that would taste wild by themselves.

– Thursday



When only scheduled to work a half day at work I need to make a precise agenda of what I want to accomplish before going in. I had plans to get up around 8:00, make sure breakfast was ate by 9:00, and be at the gym by 11:00 to start swinging kettlebells. This did not happen.

I woke up around 7:00 and had this:


I felt on point with this cinnamon coffee. This was an ideal breakfast. However, I believe I was in the kitchen for at least 25 minutes, which is not ideal.I REALLY want to cut that down to about 10-15 minutes if possible. Will work on that…

So this is where the day went wrong, I was still planning on going to the gym at 11:00 (maybe catching a small p shake bc I woke early) but FORGOT I had to deal with financial aid at school… took about an hour.

Skipped the workout and had this for lunch around noon:


A little too much food at this meal…. actually not really.. I remember looking for something else to eat after this but didn’t end up getting anything…

Work was fantastic as always. Check out my other blog “A Premed’s Journey” for that info.

I got home at 6:00…. read for about an hour out of my prized Harvey Cushing biography and then made dinner (AKA Meal #3):


Fascinating, I know. Follow me on dosIQ for daily pictures of meals… I can not always write a food journal every day but I can take a quick pic. DosIQ is really simple… The app on iPhone is a little sketchy but I probably use it more than Instagram. There website is flawless for a food journal though.

I had a great day in the clinic all day. I am finally working proficiently…. Almost.
Nutrition was down today. I had what seemed a terrific breakfast of eggs, spinach, peppers, bacon, and nuts. I then had some ocra and salmon for lunch with some lentils. This turned out to be a gooey, tasteless mess. My meal was too big when I got home from work around 6:00. I should have had a quick (QUICK) meal the and then a small fatty/protein meal before bed.

In the morning I will be eating breakfast and throwing around kettle balls at the gym for the first time. I can not wait to finally try these out! I am not following a plan as of tomorrow because I am so scatterbrained tonight. Will post ASAP after workout tomorrow!
