Weekend in Durham Day 1

Yesterday I travelled up to Durham to see my boyfriend Tom who is finishing his masters. Tom and I have been together for 3 years long distance so we see each other once a month during term time (since I’m in London and he’s in durham but spend a lot of summer together which is great 😀

He is the BEST ! 🙂

We went out for breakfast at Bill’s restaurant which we haven’t done in a long time so I was really excited to eat some pancakes and fruit so much for healthy diet

I got pancakes with strawberries and bananas whilst Tom got bacon, avocado and poached eggs on toast, they were both delicious!

I was looking for some smart casual wear because I am working at a GP (house doctor) for the next month and I also have some placements organised. But I didn’t really find anything apart from some super comfy high waisted black jeans from Topshop and a cute top to wear on my friends birthday this Friday.

We also went to Waterstones bookshop and they had so many medical nonfiction autobiographical books which was really great to see!

This one really stood out to me! I now regret not buying it !

 

After this we headed back to go to the gym which is in Tom’s apartment and did an insane ab workout by Ashley Conrad  after a 4km run on the treadmill.

Love getting back into working out! I now need to sort out a meal prep plan – any recommendations on how to?

Hope you all had a great day! 🙂

 

What did you guys get up to today?

Do you struggle finding smart/casual clothing?

 

 

First Post – Exams are over!

Hi there! I am a second year Biomedical Science student in the UK (sort of like pre-med for americans 😛 )

Now exams are over I can start my goal for this year – to start a blog we will see how long this lasts lol.

I finally got home home from University last night which was a bit of nightmare, I swear each summer gets hotter than the one before?! Apart from being partially roasted on the journey I noticed how unfit I am – you know that feeling after exams since you’ve been snacking on multiple questionable items high in sugar, carbs and caffeine and more caffeine and not working out for MONTHS (the manager at the gym I go to called me to see if I was okay since I did not go AT ALL)

Lets just say I have been pretty bad at working out and eating well recently!

At home it was my dad’s birthday, my dad wanted a simple quiet birthday so I cooked some steak (with a pinterest steak recipe) and roast potatoes with saulteed Broccoli   for everyone it was delicious.

I couldn’t say no to steak and cake so my healthy diet has gone out of the window! 😛

At least there was some fruit on the cake – My parents are too cute 🙂

Currently I am catching up on Love Island which I am obsessed with! Is it just me? Does anyone else love Love Island?

Its so weird not having an exam to prepare for and constant anatomy or immunology to learn but I have GAMSAT coming up soon so this will not last for long… 😉

 

I hope this was an okay first post!

How do you guys feel after exams?

What do you do to treat yourself  after exams? 🙂
