Quickly updating -- the next two weeks are filled with finals and stress and exhaustion so I don't expect much other than to maintain my sanity and maintain my weight. If I can just stay right where I am amidst all the hullabaloo, I'll be happy.
Generally, I'm not someone that is easily frazzled or excitable but I'm starting to feel overwhelmed. My OMM final on Friday is 30% of my total grade - actually it's 2/3 of my written grade for the course (and only 70 questions, I might add). On top of that, it's cumulative over EVERYTHING so I'm really focusing on aceing this thing! (For those of you who are familiar with OMM or are DO students, you're probably wondering why I'm worried about it. Our written exams are tough. Like way more tough than COMLEX practice questions.)
I definitely cannot afford to perform poorly due to the magnitude of the exam. Make or break it. On top of that, I'm trying to stay caught up in my Repro course since I have my final exam for that class next Friday. I hate getting behind!
At least I'm not the only one studying!
Last Week: 196.4
This week: 197.4
Total Loss: -39.0
A small gain this week. Like I said, I'm just trying to hover right where I am until we get through finals. I really need to start tracking more consistently so that's my goal for the rest of the week - just for the awareness. I get confused if I should focus on Myfitnesspal or WW points - it's too time consuming to track both in the apps! I like to pay attention to my macros but points is so much easier! Any suggestions? May I could track WW on paper and do MFP on my phone?
I'll be squeezing in at-home workouts for most of the week - I have recently fallen in love with Les Mills Combat & I'll pepped in some Turbo Fire to keep it interesting :) I created a hybrid schedule using this tool, it's great if you have a few different Beachbody programs. Only a few weeks until half marathon training starts up again!
My med school nest - where I eat, study, and apparently drink from four different glasses.
What is your approach to health/weight loss during stressful times?
