I can't really say life has been crazy as much as it has been wonderful lately! But that means I've been a terrible slacker with the blog. Soon enough, the blog is getting a makeover and I'm hoping that will inspire me to get some more reader-friendly posts your way! 

In the meantime, I hope you are enjoying the holiday season!

Working Out

I guess Thanksgiving has me feeling guilty. I've been meaning to be better about working out. I started with Camp Gladiator back in September, and it was awesome. The workouts are intense and there's always someone there to keep you going. The only thing I don't like about it is the times/places the workouts are available. While there are a number of locations, the times at the locations closest to me aren't all that convenient to my schedule. While I still do occasional camps, I'm not good about going every chance I get. I've been seeing the Bodyrock workouts on Pinterest for months. Today, I'm getting started. The home workout revolution has swayed me. All of's workouts are fairly short and the results look amazing. Maybe for the New Year I'll consider changing my diet too. Maybe.

Today: I'm starting with some of her older stuff. Today we're starting with the first part of her Rock Your Body group of workouts. Wish me luck!

Happy Turkey Day


It's been a rough year in some parts. But I made it through my 2nd year of residency, my family survived the loss of my parents home, and I've got new people in my life making it a great one. There's so much to be thankful for this holiday season. What are you most thankful for? 

And on that note, what's your favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner? I think I have to go with my mom's sweet potato casserole. Yum!

All I Want For Christmas

Now that I've completed almost every bit of my own Christmas shopping, here's the things I'd love to find under the tree for me! What do YOU want for Christmas?

A Time For Thanks

Image courtesy of:

Last night, I had the pleasure of enjoying dinner on behalf of my patient's family. Yes, the one I blogged about a while back. The one that means so much to me. His family has become more than just the loved ones of someone I was able to help, but dear friends of mine. Their friends treated me (and my date!) to a fantastic dinner at Lemongrass in Deep Ellum. For you Dallasites, I highly recommend it. Fantastic Vietnamese--and they even kept things peanut free at my request! I'll keep this post short and to the point. My boyfriend (yes, I said it!) and I had a terrific time catching up with the family and friends that I've spent so much time getting to know as their son recovers. I have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season, but nearing the top of the list is my patient's recovery, the new friends I've made because of his course, and the meaning which it gives me for my career. Thank you again to those of you who were so gracious in spending your evening with me. You know who you are. :)
