Anyway, the weekend was really nice, and I feel like I got a bit of my "lazy" out, but tomorrow will entail a very different change of pace. Tomorrow begins my very short study period for Step 2 CK. Yes, I am freaking out about how few days I have to prepare for the big test, but I'm just going to keep pushing a little bit longer, and then have a real vacation after the test. Funny enough, I think it will actually be nice to just study all the time for a change. I won't have to try to impress anyone, and I can be on my own schedule and decide when I wake up, eat, sleep, etc.
In addition to my study crunch for the next couple of weeks, I have decided that I'm also going to use this time to lose some weight. I was pretty healthy in the beginning of the year, but in the last month, Internal Medicine left me feeling exhausted, drained, and anxious - which is the perfect recipe for triggering stress eating. So I've crept up on my weight again... But it's nothing I can't fix with a few weeks of diet and exercise, which I'm actually looking forward to. So here goes! Tomorrow is day one of working hard for a couple of weeks, but this hard work will definitely be rewarding in the end.
