It's All About Push

Pushing yourself to the limit is so very important.  If you want to advance to a new level or even master the level that you are currently on, you must push yourself.   If you've been following my blog for long you know I have a love/hate relationship with the gym, nevertheless, I've been pushing myself to stick with the routine that I've created.  When I don't feel like going I must push myself even harder.

Giving up is so easy.  Allowing distractions to consume you is so easy.  But it's the push that's the most least in my case.  For example, it's easy for me to decide that to allocate "gym time" to study time or quality time with my husband.   While those are good reason because maintaining your relationships are especially important you shouldn't sacrifice your personal health.  When I finally build up the willpower to get to the gym it becomes easier.  My motivation increases (of course I'm playing all of my iTunes best LOL) and I power through my workout.

The American Heart Association states that you we should work out 30 mins a day per week (Link to AHA-Physical Activity).  That's 150 mins a week.  It's certainly doable and it gets me out of the house.  At times I can go a little stir crazy when I've been in the house all day.  Anyway, 30 minutes is the length of a decent tv show and courtesy of technology I can combine the two! And believe me I do LOL.

I have a goal in mind and I'd like to see it accomplished.  There have been some discouraging moments and when school starts back getting to the gym gets even harder, but I want to keep this up.  I want to make my health more of a priority.  Being in medical school and learning about the effects of diabetes and coronary artery disease is no fun when you think this could happen to me.  So to that I say, NO MA'AM, NO HAM, NO THANK YOU! lol.     

Push on my people...push on!

It's that Med School Monday Time!

I know, I know...I'm a couple of days late.  But either way I just wanted to share with everyone why I link up, although I'm not consistent :( , the first Monday of every month.  One of the things that I love about Med School Monday, besides reading all the interesting stories, is that I get to see so many different takes on what it means to be a medical student or in a relationship with one.  Being that I am a married woman I am always trying to figure out how to management my relationship with my husband without failing out of school LOL.  Participating in this blog link ups helps to give me many ideas about how I can do this.  It's great! 

Some of the women and men that participate are pretty creative when it comes to planning a fun date, working out, looking fly (*snap snap*), study tips, and maintaining overall health.   

So happy that I get to link up! 

See you all on Med School Monday ;)
