It's almost been a year since I transitioned my personal IG account into a blog/medicine page. It's still my personal account. It's aesthetic is not perfectly manipulated and flawless, although it's certainly not effortless! I appreciate everyone who follows along! It's been so much fun! So here is a long overdue intro πŸ’ƒπŸ½:
β€’ I've been a family medicine PA for 3 years and I'm super excited to start my dermatology career in September. β€’β€’β€’
God is my rock and I do all things through Christ who strengthens me. β€’β€’β€’
Clearly, I love skincare. But clearly, my skin is not perfect! It's an ongoing process that I thoroughly enjoy, plus I enjoy sharing! β€’β€’β€’ I'm a total Floridian, and I went to UF for both undergrad plus PA school. I love the beach and the sun. β€’β€’β€’ I was not the strongest PA applicant, nor was I the strongest student. DM me if you're feeling discouraged or need advice!β€’

I was a little skeptical about posting this but oh well. Obviously this will be a before pic lol but any who... today I faced a lot of struggles with trying to motivate myself to get back to how I used to workout. I gained so much weight while I was in Cali.. and I promised myself that I would get back into it. I know diving right back into it is never easy and at the end of the day the competition you will face is yourself. So let's get this journey started again 😁πŸ’ͺ side note: my shirt made my tummy look weird πŸ˜«πŸ˜‚ #thestrugglewasreal #backatit #bareface

FINALLY! A 5RM power clean @ 165#! πŸ’ͺ🏼 Getting the 5th rep of this complex has been haunting me for the last week! I know this one is not pretty by any means, but I'll take what I can get...

Sharing my silliest parenting moment with @parasolco Since Bebe isn't here yet, I think this would be hiding in the bushes of Runyon Canyon not once, but three times to pee. Mothers will understand this pregnancy struggle. On the second time, it was a cute Labrador that almost outed me. Trying to shush him away while, relieving myself, hilarious. 🀣 Apologies to anyone I may have flashed that day. #thestrugglewasreal Head on over to @parasolco and tell them your silliest parenting moment, then click the link in their bio for your chance to win dad $1000 worth of gifts for Father's Day. #parasolbaby #parasolmoments #luckyforyouthatswhatdadlikes #parasolpartner

Some people think you have to go to the extreme to find results. When what you really need is consistency.

I struggled again this morning with my workout. So going extreme...well that just wasn't an option for me. Instead I took my time with the moves and focused on my form.
I modified when and where I needed to.
A slow and steady will still get me results. Maybe not as fast as I would like but that's ok. As long as I keep at it and don't throw in the towel, I'll be just fine.
Are you slow and steady? Or extreme?
