My primary goal is weight loss. When I started medical school I was only about 10 lbs away from my goal but a couple of years of sitting in classrooms all day then studying all evening and poor eating habits and I gained 50 lbs. My secondary goal is strength training, before school I enjoyed going to the gym and working out with friends.
I'm trying to walk every day and keep my calories withing limits. My best friend from college got me into kettlebell training last year and I'm doing that for my strength training. My wife has been very supportive and even bought me my first few kettlebells to use at home.
I'm a medical student in my 3rd year of school. I married the love of my life a couple years ago and am working to get back into the healthy shape I was in when we first met.
Before school I was a big fan of reading, now I read so much for school I just don't have time for any fun reading. I am also interested in martial arts and kettlebell strength training. In my little bit of free time I enjoy working on my motorcycle and hanging out with my wife and our dogs.

Thanks for commenting on my "Trusting The Process" blog. Have a healthy day!
It is so hard to keep healthy as a med student. I gained a lot of weight during med school and residency because it is so stressful and time consuming. Congrats to you for incorporating it and take it one day at a time
