Being a Student…

Well… today was supposed to be my “off day” from Insanity, but because I didn’t work out last Thursday, I figured I’d just push through. There was a very good reason why I wanted Mondays to be my off day. Lab from 8am to 11am, then class from 11am to 4:30pm with only an hour break for lunch in between my first and second classes. I had a hard enough time attempting to stay awake during pathophysiology and pharmacology. From the looks of my notes, I managed to stay coherent enough until the last 15 minutes of pathophysiology, and pretty much was in an epic struggle for the first half of pharmacology. I was coherent and conscious during Therapeutics though! That’s the class that really matters for a future-Pharmacist right?

When I got home I was starving, Insanity does that to you. It speeds up your metabolism so that you’re always hungry. Usually I just work out when I come home, but I was depleted of my energy and needed something. So I ate a bagel with cream cheese and smoked salmon. I figured I’d give it half an hour to digest and went to change into my work out attire to get ready and everything. Went to lay down to stretch my back a bit, and apparently I passed out within five minutes because I didn’t even recall getting some of those text messages that I got. I ended up passing out for three hours because I was that tired. So working out today was a bust, but I’ll work out tomorrow when I get up since I don’t have class until 1:30 anyways. 

I’m so tired, I’m already ready to pass out right now. And I had a nap earlier. Oye. But what can I do? I’m a pharmacy student and school takes precedence over pretty much everything in life. Insanity’s 60 day program? I have a feeling is going to take a lot longer than that. But as I mentioned in my last post, it’s all about trying and making an effort right? 

I’m definitely seeing the results already. For professional pharmacy practice lab, I had to dress professionally and these dress pants I have they’ve been a little snug last semester when I wore them for rotation to the point where they’d give me a wedgie if I sit in them for too long (such as driving to and from my rotation site). I wore them today, and had no issues! They were completely comfy like they first were when I bought them. Huzzah! So glad I didn’t invest money in buying bigger pants. Now let’s see if I can fit into my other pants that had gotten uncomfortable to wear so I stopped wearing them. Hopefully!!!

But in any case, I’m trying to get my Insanity workout routine to get back on track so that I have monday’s as my off days. So I made the executive decision to forego tomorrow’s Fit Test, and do the video for Day 6 like I was supposed to do today if I had worked out. And then continue on the rest of the week as scheduled. Hopefully I won’t take these unexpected naps again. They’re rather inconvenient.

As for this week, I need to start studying for pharmacology’s exam next week. OYE. I don’t like this at all. 10-weeks of summer session is gonna fly by in no time, and I’ll be back home in CO for a good three months for rotations before coming back to MA. Huzzah!
