Winton Woods Parcours Trail. I'm far from being particularly fast or strong. But this kind of stuff keeps me breathing, surviving on the tough days. It literally is the difference that allows me to live, along with medical treatment & follow up. Exercise, nutritious meals (I can still enjoy good food, days with beer or wine. I just need to eat healthy most the time), medicine, air condition/low humidity & clean air to sleep (asthma, radiation scarring, COPD, apnea), supplementation to make up for certain differences in how my body works as a result of my prior cancer & chemo, radiation, more exercise, sufficient rest & sleep (which can actually be the most difficult thing with breathing issues). My parents are 87, 91 respectively, so I've need to help them with their health issues more frequently as of late, including daily care. I also have my own business, work I do. But to make it happen, I have to take care of my health. It's kind of like when the oxygen masks drops on a plane. You put your oxygen mask on first before helping those around you. Otherwise, if you start by trying to help someone else first & pass out in the process, you can't do them or yourself any good. Life = movement.

The past couple weeks I've been feeling very overwhelmed, and sometimes when I go through my handy SIG E CAPS depression score with a patient, I wonder if I'm not meeting some of these criteria myself. I feel like I'm kind of hitting burnout phase 2, although it's nowhere near as bad as I felt during Stony Brook Medicine. This is more of a "i'm so done with this shit" kind of burnout, where I'm more fed up than anything.
After a particularly stressful day I went to yoga, even though I felt like I didn't have time. I always make time for my weekend Jiva but fitting in the LI studio on the weekdays is tricker. But there's only one word for how I fixed after, and it's the same word I use for when I see Pony after a long day, and it's "fixed". Sometimes, you just need to get on the mat and sweat and let your body twist and breathe.
This is a new pose I learned just a couple weeks ago at Hamptons Jiva. I'm supposed to get my elbow all the way under my knee. I'm not there yet. But I'm working on it. Like many, many other things- including the last little bit of intern year.
I start my 12 week #Shape -Up program May 1st so I'm planning it out. I'll do a 20 min #HIIT#workout for that day for 6 days a week for 12 weeks with also a challenge workout on those 6 days. I printed out the #workouts due that I'm a visual kind of person I must see what my schedule/workout looks like in order to keep myself accountable in doing it so I put the first 3 weeks on a poster board once these 3 weeks are done then I'll add the next 3 #weeks up until I finish my 12 weeks. Can't wait. #challenge#exercise#schedule#planning#posterboard
