Yesterday was one of those aggravating afternoons where you’re running around and feeling super busy, but in actuality not getting much done at all. After my morning class, I stopped by the gym for an hour to bust out a biceps and shoulders workout.
Weightlifting without doing cardio always feels strange to me. There’s so much sitting around! My legs are hurting right now, though, so upper body it is 🙂 I’m doing a series from bodybuilding.com that is supposedly what Hugh Jackman followed to get ripped for X-Men. So if you start seeing some pictures of Hugh Jack on here, don’t worry, it’s still me! 😛
After the gym I ran to the hospital to pick up a badge for my shadowing shift tonight. It turned out that the woman I needed to get the badge from was gone until 12:30pm and got off work at 3:30pm. I was there at 11:15. Womp womp. I grabbed a cup of soup at the grocery store nearby and ate it in my car like the cool kid I am.
I thought about waiting around until 12:30, but I didn’t have anything with me to look at so I just went to home before work instead. I called the woman and she is leaving the badge in her mailbox for me. When I got home I was still STARVING so I grabbed a snack and partied with Elsa and our neighbor cat.
After work I went and saw Tim at Cordial Physical Therapy, aka my bff, for some help with this pain in my legs! 60 needles in each calf and some nerve flossing later, I can actually walk like a human being again. That man is a godsend.
When I got home, Elsa was chillin’ like a villain.
Legs crossed and everything!! What a little lady. The rest of the night was kind of a wash. I did some homework but not nearly as much as I needed to. This whole getting dark at 4pm thing is really hitting me hard this year! 6pm rolls around and I am 100% ready for bed. Last night I was asleep before 9, so I’ve got some work to do this morning!
Goals for today: 1. Go grocery shopping. My lunch today consists of a peanut butter sandwich and a bag of raw peas. Let me tell you how pumped I am.
ewww. 2. Finish the biochem chapter I’ve been putting off reading all week. 3. Get in AT LEAST one hour of MCAT studying.
I’m shadowing in the ER tonight from 10pm-6am so the next time you hear from me I will have been awake for 24 hours straight!! EEEEEK! Have a great Friday!!
