Feeling all the post-call jitters but decided to just get this done. I’m inspired by some of the women 👩🏻‍⚕️doctors, nurses, medical students and PAs in my fitness group who make absolutely NO excuses....even working out before long night shifts and in a call rooms 💪🏼💕. When I decided to leave ALL of my excuses behind, things started to change in my life. I am no longer bound by my excuses and by something else other than ME controlling MY life. This freedom has brought me new opportunities and new goals🙌🏻. If you struggle with finding the time to fit this in, you need to hear the stories of these women....join us? Now time for some serious shut eye 😴 🛏 .

Happy Monday😴 I could use an extra large coffee and an inspirational quote for week 2 of CaRMS🙊
Have my 1st of 5 interviews for this week in a couple hours and the nerves are starting to pick up⬆ I find the wait the worse and my heart speeds up to what feels like 200bpm just before I walk into the room and then as I talk, I find myself relaxing. Everyone has been so nice!😀 The best part is knowing I'll get to see all the great peds applicants I met last week again and also meet some new people! So many new friendships👥Only hope I may be co-residents with some of them one day soon🙆
Hope your day and week is off to a great start!💕

My life. Literally. This is what I spend hours a day doing. A common question I get asked is “What do you study?”. When I tell them Cytogenetics it’s often met with blank stares and the obvious “What is that?”. Well, it’s this. Hours a day looking at jumbled up chromosomes. But, it’s for a purpose. I am now able to look at a group of mashed up chromosomes, organize them, and tell you whether that person has cancer, has a disease, or if the child you’re carrying will be born with abnormalities. If I’m not here then I’m in the wet lab making slides from blood or amniotic fluid or in the classroom learning more about diseases, immunology, genetics, and so much more. I’ve decided to post more of what I do in school, my journey as a premed, and science facts you may or may not think are cool (I’m a nerd, go figure 🤷🏽‍♀️). Stick around, learn a thing or two, and maybe surprise your friends with some new found knowledge. Welcome to my series of fortunate* events.

Another weekend for/with/immersed in the books 📙📘📒📗📕 •
• 
Had a convo with my intern and attending this week about whether we were tangible book or online book people. They both voted they love to be able to flip through pages and physically highlight. And while I can appreciate the sentiment of holding all that wisdom and knowledge in your hands, I’m all about that control/command F life in pdf versions. I have probably bought 2 books total in medical school. And in undergrad I bought a 9 pound neuroscience textbook that remained in the plastic wrap all the way till graduation. Needless to say, not my thing. •

So hard copy or electronic? What team are you on?! 📚//🖥

Some serious changes are coming 2018 in personal, fitness, and educational realms. As I turned 30 I thought about a quote a friend said awhile ago that I lost sight of recently. “Be actively committed to self improvement in all facets of your life.” I’ll keep personal stuff personal but fitness wise powerlifting has never been my strength. I’m not a huge fan of it because I’m not good at it. I’d rather oly lift any day. That’s going to change in 2018. Goals are 500lb deadlift 405lb back squat 315lb bench as well as 150kg clean and jerk 125kg snatch.  #fieldstrong #powerlifting #power #lift #gym #gymlife #fit #fitness #fitfam #crossfit #olympiclifting #snatch #cleanandjerk #deadlift #squat #bench #skobuffs #beboulder #denver #boulder #colorado #mdtobe #medschool #md @powerathletehq #2018 #goals #change #stayactive #sisyphus #fight

This is not how I imagined today would go with all of this ❄️ but it’s beautiful!!! I’m gearing up to finish my hospital rounds before the last night of trauma call. I haven’t worn these high Sorel boots in a while and I missed them! So comfy and warm!!

I’m rounding as the Acute Pain Doctor at a few different hospitals today, taking care of my patients with epidurals and peripheral nerve catheters! I thought I’d spice it up a bit 🧜🏼‍♀️ since I’m not in the operating room until tonight. Who says you can’t wear blue suede power flats on rounds? 👩🏻‍⚕️🏥

Depending on how The Match works out, this could be our life everyday! But first, @a_vski would need to get over his fear of hurricanes! 🌀🌧️🌊
⚕️
I've gotten so many questions about where I will end up next year and what the next step in my training is. The answer is, I have no clue where we will be! We won't find out until March 16th (a day after my birthday!). But what I do know is that after graduating in May, I will be an internal medicine resident. Over the past year or more, I've been taking huge tests (Step 1, Step2 CK, and Step 2CS) and preparing an extensive application. I submitted my scores, application, personal statement, letters of recommendation, and of course a headshot 😂👑 to programs where I would want to train  as a resident doctor.
⚕️
Then, the programs that were interested, invited me to interview with them. I accepted 12 interviews all across the country!  Interview season was such a fun experience getting to finally travel after years of working too hard to have the time.
⚕️ Now, I will rank those 12 programs in something called The Match. Those programs will also rank the applicants they interviewed and through some software magic, I will hopefully be matched with my new home and first doctor job for the next three years.After those three years of intensive training, I can independently practice in a hospital or clinic, or I can chose to train further to specialize within the internal medicine field. ♥️@a_vski has been with me through every step of this long and complex training path and we can't wait to see where it continues to take us! .

Low bar amrap followed by beltless pause squats today on my lunch break! Surprised yet kinda disappointed with only getting 9 reps at 335lbs but considering I got 347lbs at nationals in July I’ll happily take this rep PR! I’m pretty confident I’ll see a 4 plate squat before the year ends. 😊🙌🏼 And a huge thank you to @feedmefightme for the amazing leggings. Squat tested, doctor approved. 😍💕

I’m ready. Ready to wear all black tomorrow to morn the death of my weekend. I’m doing a 72 hour call all weekend so my dreams of playing outside and hiking are gone 😥. My dreams of being lazy and relaxing....non existent. That’s ok!  I will still do my workout, eat as good as I can, drink water, smile, be kind....because I know that I have it better than the people I have to help. And that keeps me going💪🏼🙌🏻

ten hours spent with riding with two amazing women. as medics, they taught me more than they probably know. medicine isn’t a one man show, but rather a team effort. so thankful there are medics and EMTs out there like Ciara and Kaetlin holding it all together.

Good morning! Let's make today a good one ✨🤗 I'm feeling anxious today as it's my last full study day before my LAST Accelerated OChem Final EVER. Luckily it's grapefruit season and I have a couple of these babies to look forward to. Thank goodness for small pleasures like good food to get me up and motivated. Sometimes I'm so crippled by my own fear and anxiety as I approach a test that I just want to stay in bed and pretend that I don't have a test...anyone else ever felt this way? What has helped me the most this past week is to focus on creating a peaceful and calm environment for myself. I don't do better the more anxious I am. It doesn't motivate me or help clear my mind or make my learning more productive. A calm mind and good food on the other hand 🍊🥄✨ Now that's the good stuff. #startthedayoffright #nutritionaltherapy #ialsoatebaconandgreens

I’m a huge nerd. I love science and I love human physiology especially in relation to pharmacology. I have a remarkable memory, sometimes described as photographic or ironclad....or ridiculous as my husband describes it🤷🏻‍♀️. In college, I would study for long essay tests using a page full of small drawings which to me represented the stages that my essay would unfold. I’m horrible at writing. ....
I started medical school 20 years ago but some people in the operating room still think I’m the student. Sometimes they ask when my attending is coming to see the patient or place the nerve block, or when my attending is coming to get the patient to sleep 😴 😷. .......
Sometimes I play along and say he will be here in a minute....and then say ,the attending is ME💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼🍎 and I watch the jaws drop.
.......
Over the last 15 years in the operating room I’ve come to terms with the fact that people have a solid preconceived notion of what their doctor should look like.......and that person is not me. It’s hard some days to battle through the bias and the questions and the “oh, you are a woman?” ......
I have struggled with how to deal with this and I don’t have all the answers, but I know that the next generation of female Physicians are watching and the best thing to do is to always remain professional and kind while doing the best I can for my patients🙌🏻. ......
I will continue to never apologize for being who God created me to be. I am a nerd who loves to help people, and I will continue to be me!!!!

Only 3 days into this program and I’m feeling less bloated, less puffy and less tired. Why is that?  It’s because I’m eating clean with less sugar and carbs to drag me down ......I forget how it feels to feel good and to have the energy during the day to keep working long days and nights 🙌🏻😩. It’s the start of something amazing and it keeps me ready to tackle the most difficult of situations in my day. 😃🤓🙋🏻‍♀️

#goals #mdtobe Two and a half years ago I made this checklist with aims of getting into med school. I was able to check off every one and am starting a new goals sheet for the year to come!!

I spent this long weekend with my mom who came in town to visit. While I had a lot of studying that could have been done, it was so nice to be able to put it aside for a few days and spend quality time with her. Self-care is so important, and this weekend was a perfect reminder of that. Life doesn’t pause while you are in medical school, so I try to make sure that I still am able to do things I enjoy. Spending time with family is at the top of my list. How do you practice self-care?

What a fabulous day! A busy clinic meant so many wonderful things for me to see and listen to.  I even got to see a patient with Noonan’s Syndrome with Multiple Lentigines (aka LEOPARD Syndrome). It was an amazing case and I’m so in love with medicine 👩‍⚕️ #passion #keysforsuccess #key #study #premed #mdtobe #medicine

Today we reflect on the horror of hate that existed just a few decades ago and how the courage of MLK to stand firmly against injustice made america a better place for me and future Americans. Truly grateful to be part of his legacy and all that stood against injustice. Happy MLK Day ❤️🙌🏾#hatecannotdriveouthateonlylovecandothat #MDtobe #mygreatestteachergrowingup

First Day of Classes in Tennessee (I know it's an evening picture)..in so many ways I feel so spoiled. I've had the urge to buy 3 months supply of items or a small table to carry but then I realized..I don't have to do any of that. Do you want to know what's better?? I can actually have Starbucks in the morning #winning 🙌💁

Reviewing some medical terminology before my internship again tomorrow! Knowing the prefixes and suffixes of medical terms really helps me “guess” what the physician is explaining to me before I go read all about it later on 😂 #keys #study #mdtobe #premed #cardiology #medicine #success #keystosuccess

It’s almost impossible to turn on the news these days and not hear about the influenza virus. This map on the CDC website depicts flu-illness activity per state. As you can see, it’s pretty bad mostly everywhere. This years predominant strain, H3N2 is particularly severe among people who are 65 and older. That doesn’t mean that only older folks are affected. As of this week there have been 20 total fatal pediatric cases. Those at risk for the most complications are old people, children and those with weak immune systems, but regular healthy folks like myself are not immune to the fatalities that flu can cause.
.
Influenza is associated with complications like development of bacterial pneumonia. This can be severe, especially to those at risk, requiring hospitalization or causing death. Flu can also worsen other chronic medical conditions like asthma or heart failure, and can cause wide spread inflammation of other organs. .
.
So what can you do to prevent getting flu? The best thing is to get your flu shot, it’s not too late (some pharmacies have run out, but you can try a trip to the doctor or a minute clinic)! Even if you still get the flu after getting a flu shot, your symptom duration and severity could decrease  significantly. It’s also important to know that you CANNOT get the flu from the flu shot. It contains pieces of the dead virus so its physically impossible. Antibodies to flu take about 2-4 weeks to form after receiving the flu shot, so it’s likely that if you receive the flu after getting the shot, you already had the virus brewing inside you. The symptoms can start anywhere from 1 to 4 days after the virus enters the body.
.
.
Otherwise wash your hands, and stay away from sick people if you can! People with flu are contagious 1 day before symptoms and up to 5-7 days after becoming sick. If you find yourself with flu, you should stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone without use of fever reducing meds. People are always curious about meds to treat flu, like Tamiflu, but they are only helpful if used within 48 hours of symptoms. For these people, Tamiflu can reduce symptom duration by about 16 hours. Be safe out there everyone!

Made a new friend the other day who literally walked me home. 🐱✨ (Spoiler alert, I think she lives two doors down from me so maybe she was just walking herself home...) Such a little love! I don't have a pet at the moment, because to be totally real I can hardly take care of myself lately. But I do love having neighborhood critters to love on. Animals = Therapy ❤️✨

It’s often said that you learn a new thing every day. Well in medical school, you learn more things than your brain can possibly handle every day. Am I right? This week’s agenda included neoplasia (pathology of tumors/cancer), metabolism and growth of tumors, oncogenetics, and cancer drugs. Such an interesting week, but I’m definitely looking forward to a much needed 3 day weekend!

What a great second day! I’m being treated the same way as the third year med student that is working with the doctor as well.  I learned SO MUCH in just one day, but the most important thing I learned is probably the golden rule of never answering a doctor’s question with “I’m not sure” but instead with “I will find the answer”! #premed #intern #mdtobe #keystosuccess #study #studying #keys #peds #cardiology #heart
