Wishing school didn’t start in two days, buuut this 👉🏼👉🏼 is my view right now (🤤) until my flight tonight, so I’m trying real hard not to think about.
Living on lake time ONLY today 🌊
What are y’alls plans for Memorial Day?
Healthcare Experience & Patient Care Experience.
Just thought I’d share a few things I did to get substantial HCE & PCE without a background in medicine. It’s for anyone wanting to get hands-on experience for nursing, medical or PA school, without losing a lot of money in the process. I’ll do a small series of some things I’ve done and I hope you’ll find it helpful! To start off: how I got my CNA certification.
I previously wrote a lengthy post about how I got my NA certification without taking the course. In short: I challenged the test and passed. I had a lot of experience as a PCA and Clinical Assistant beforehand, which helped. I suggest looking at local test sites to see what their recommendations are. Some require proof of experience and some don’t. In total, the exam book + test fee was about $200. It was far less than the $1,000 I would‘ve had to pay if I was taking the course along with it. Some areas will also train you to get your certification for free if you’re a low-income individual or as long as you agree to work with them for a certain amount of time. I recommend looking into that as well. Classes can run anywhere between 1-8 weeks.
Starting salaries for CNA’s are around $11-18 in my area, depending on size of organization and your experience. After factoring cost, time and compensation; getting your CNA is one of the cheapest ways to get quality, entry-level experience IMHO. The type of work I did were checking vitals, emptying drains, blood glucose checks, assisting with ambulation, rooming patients, baths and hygiene care.
Lmk if you have any other questions about getting your CNA! 👋🏼 #healthcareexperience#patientcareexperience

It’s hard to see but my mug says “mythic creatures” and that’s exactly what engaging presentations should NOT be: mythical. 🦄 🌈
They shouldn’t be rare, they should be the status quo.
That’s what I’m trying to make happen. If you want to join me in making awesome presentations the norm for academia, science, and research...they give me a follow and head over to my website for resources.
See you there! 👋🏻

Forgive yourself, for your mistakes, your failed experiments, your "I should have...", the times your should have spent doing something else, your neglected goals. Forget the times you shouldn't have slept in, the indulgent holidays, the times when you fell short of expectations, the times when you weren't at your best.
Im the worst with this (guess I should forgive myself for not being forgiving too). I have reflected on my PhD life the past few days and have come to realise that there was a lot of latent anger in those years.
I was angry at my supervisor for retiring, angry at being treated like a spare part, angry at being a article mill for others, angry at being blamed for a failed conference event, for giving up on powerlifting, for failing at dating (good lord am I bad at that), for my funding falling through, for my rejected papers...
While I have directed these emotions or buried them under extreme productivity, my PhD would have been a lot more enjoyable if I let them go. Not that I was emotionally mature enough then to know how to but I could have found my motivation from a place of ambition, love and badassery.
Be kind to yourself, let them go and perhaps you can learn to love yourself more and learn to love your work more.

We hear it all the time, even if you lose weight on a diet, you'll gain it all back (and more) later. Well here I am, almost 5 years keto, and healthier than when I was in 6th grade (when I was diagnosed with PCOS). .
We know adaptive thermogenesis kicks in during energy restriction to keep us alive during the perceived famine. During low-carb / keto, we're adjusting the hormonal response, specifically insulin.
I've said many times that I was able to INCREASE calories on keto (compared yo SAD) and LOSE weight. I was told it wasn't possible, it's simply calories in calories out and I must struggle with arithmetic (me, the former Wall Street data analyst). 🙄 How do we measure 'calories out' day to day? It isn't a static closed system, our metabolism is dynamic. It looks like I fall into the group of folks who has increased metabolic rate on keto, or at least eliminate the hyperinsulinemic metabolic derangement.

Great study showing higher daily calorie burn after weight loss on a keto diet compared to a high-carb diet.
One of the hardest parts of weight loss is the maintenance phase. Your body will fight to get back to your set-point weight by altering hormones and decreasing energy expenditure. This can leave you feeling ravenous, cold and tired amongst other things.
People with significant insulin resistance prior to starting a weight loss regimen burned over 300 calories more per day on keto compared to the high-carb diet. Even without insulin resistance, participants still had a higher daily calorie expenditure on keto.
Also noted was a decrease in ghrelin (a hunger hormone) on the low-carb diet compared to high-carb. Lower ghrelin levels can decrease the amount of hunger you feel, making weight maintenance less of a battle.
Wanted to start off by saying my camera was being a poop today and would not focus, BUT the leg day must go on:
1️⃣Leg press 🔥
Today was all about the leg press, started at 135 for warmups , and worked my way up to 305
2️⃣ Goblet Squats
3️⃣ Dumbbell Romanian Deadlift
4️⃣Step-ups ( #2 -4, do back to back 4-5 sets)
Happy Saturday peeps ✌️
CAN I PLEASE GET SOME LOVE. I MADE IT through my first semester of my graduate program. These last four months have been hell and have tested me in ways I didn't think possible. I took on 12 credits (the max amount you can take in a grad program), but made it out with three As, and a B (fucking math). YES, I AM TOOTING MY OWN HORN. Going to school three nights a week, while working full time, trying to maintain a social life, being an adult, and pursing my personal hobbies IS FUCKING HARD. I've cried basically everyday and told myself to suck it up countless times. I've thrown shit at walls, and badmouthed most of my group mates (they deserved it). I've never been more exhausted in my life...but here I am, 12 credits down.
To everyone out there juggling school, work, and life - stay strong and keep believing in yourself. If I can do it, you most definitely can.
To everyone who supported me and didn't question my mood swings or rants, thank you. You probably don't understand the huge impact those little words of encouragement make.
I started my summer semester on Monday and I'm praying that this one isn't nearly as bad as the last one.
