    How's everyone doing???

    Well, only a week ago that I started to prioritize health again and even in that short time I feel so much better!! Water, water, water -- making sure to consume enough water during clinicals is a challenge for sure. During theory class days, much easier to keep water bottle handy.

    Walking while re-listening to class lectures has felt so invigorating -- doesn't feel like I am sacrificing study time, even though I still have to go back over the lecture again while comparing my notes, at least I feel blood flow in my face and neck as well as limbs. Gosh, moving again (walking only, not running - way so out of shape!) in amongst all the sitting for class and study time reminds me of how vibrant our healthy bodies really are!!

    I hope everyone is doing well ---- send a post and let us support you!

    You got me re-motivated again! Our treadmill broke last fall but we finally got another one in January. I'm not really dieting very well, but I've been forcing myself to walk at least 4 times a week. I'm not losing weight but my clothes fit better. What a difference in the energy level! Thanks for getting this thread going and reminding me what's important!

    I've ridden my stationary bike 8 x 30 min ea. in 2 weeks, and I'm using it as a study reward when I finish a chapter/task. It's in front of the TV, so I get to watch a show while I ride. I don't need to lose weight but would like to get my BP back into semi-normal ranges.
