Summer Update

Good morning bloggers!

Again, its been a long while since I last posted, but those of you who read this regularly will know why - I had the dreaded exams.

Well, good news - I passed them all!

Can't quite believe it actually. Was sickeningly stressed, and I mean that literally! So relieved now that I don't have to take any resits - genuinely do not think I would have the mental or emotional or motivational stamina for that.

The fact is, I'm a bit burned out now. As such, I have made the (perhaps slightly odd) decision not to blog over the summer. That is not to say I'm giving up on the weight loss - quite the reverse! I just got back in from a wonderful early-morning run where I smashed my personal best time!

To be honest, I could really do with a month or so with no deadlines, targets, goals, tests, challenges etc etc. It would be really good to get away from all that and just BE for a few weeks, after exams. Also, it will be interesting to eat healthily and exercise for its own sake, rather than just as a means to drop pounds to try and reach weekly targets.

So there we go. I might check in now and then if I think of something I want to say, but I'm not going to officially weigh in until the Monday when my new term/semester starts (whenever that is, sometime in September I think). By then, I will be starting a new rotation, in a new hospital, with new colleagues, and hopefully living in new accommodation too (I'm already blogging on a new laptop!). Everything will be fresh, a clean start - a good time to get over this weight-loss hump and finally hit goal, eh?
