fitness 5 on friday (round 4!)

Augh! I can’t believe June is almost over! Where has the time gone?! I’m summarizing my life in pictures. (I’ll spare you of another screenshot of my notes. It just makes me sad. :[ )

My brain is tired. I need this to be over soon.

The messages on our windows continue. We’ve gotten pretty good at writing in reverse. (+1 for useless life skills!)

There are only a handful of things keeping me sane right now. One of these things happens to be good food. <3

Homemade carne asada tacos!

1. Have you ever taken a fitness class?

Oh, whew. Where to start? I used to regularly do pole, BJJ, Tahitian and hula dancing. I’ve also taken aerial silks, salsa, abs/back conditioning, yoga (general / Bikram), pilates, archery, tumbling, kickboxing, aerial hoop, hooping, circus conditioning, ballroom dancing, and belly dancing. There’s probably something left out in that list, but this is the gist of it, haha.

2. Why do you work out?

I really like to eat. (No, seriously. Of my two years in med school, I did not turn into a hypochondriac, but if I were forced to diagnose myself with something, it’d probably be [a mild-ish form of] compulsive eating disorder.)

3. What is your biggest motivator?

I am mostly fueled by my dreams of badassery. :] I like the idea of seeing what I’m capable of, and working towards constantly improving myself.

4. Where do you draw your inspiration from?

I have a pinterest board for dance. <3

5. Do you have routine physicals? (it’s very important to check your health)

I get one pretty much every year and really like getting my lab tests and such back because I like being able to analyze how I’m doing, haha.

  1. damn girl you’re so inspirational!

  2. Can you just put me in your pocket? You sound like so much fun! I love your window note! You have taken Tahitian dance?! We went to Tahiti and Bora Bora for our honeymoon. I would love to learn! Have a great weekend!

    • haha, aww, thank you! You probably wouldn’t want to be around me for another week or so (or really, anytime this month). I’ve become the most boring being on the planet! :[

      I took up Tahitian dancing in undergrad. :D! I miss it a lot, so I was teaching beginning classes at my school gym this year, hehe. That’s awesome that you got to go there and to Bora Bora too! (They’re on my bucket list! :] )

  3. A circus conditioning class sounds like fun! I’ve been wanting to take an aerial silks class for years.

    • It was super fun! They also had a partner acrobatics class that I wanted to take.

      Silks is super super fun! I want my future house to have high ceilings just so I can rig some up. :p If you ever get a chance to take a class, I’d highly recommend it!

  4. hahah I workout so I can eat too!

    1.) Can you make me those tacos?
    2.) I can’t wait to start medical school and self-diagnose myself…but I’m also terrified to discover how crazy I really am lol

    • My housemate actually made those tacos, but I’ll attempt to score the recipe from her! :]

      Don’t worry! Everyone has to be a certain level of crazy to get into medical school, so you definitely will not be alone! :P

      • hungrygatorgirl

        My classmates and I always joke that we wouldn’t have gotten in if there weren’t something wrong with us…you’re right, you kinda have to be crazy :) I like to think crazy keeps things interesting

      • Exactly! :P Although a screening process for actual level of crazy is also a nice idea. We had a couple students this year that kinda made things at school very…interesting. :x
