Wow, Long Time No See!


Damn, March 6.  That was my last blog post.  Funny how time flies when life gets busy.

Since the last time I’ve published on here, I’ve:

-become the chief of a busy level 2 trauma center going back to my first great love of trauma surgery

-competed as a twig 48kg lifter for the first time

-won best lifter in my age group at Masters Pan Ams (thank you twigdom)

-continued to suck at squats

-joined a fabulous group of other mommy doctor fitness enthusiasts who encourage each other online

-learned to embrace lifting at 8pm post-call

It’s time to come back to sharing here though I think.  My husband found me a new toy that I’ll review in a separate post which is even better for lift dynamics than the PUSH band.  I’ve learned so many little silly things that continue to help me and maybe my learning journey will help key in something for someone out there, too.  So I’ll try to be better about staying in touch.  I love when I get comments on posts from people who learned something or share something that they know better than I do.  I love the masters weightlifting community.  So I apologize for stepping away for while.  Therefore to paraphrase Jack Nicholson,  I’m baaaaaaack!

    Hi – love your blog as a new competitive weightlifter in a 55-year old body. Lifting keeps me young ( I hope!). If your online community is open to veterinarians ( and I do treat cats…😉) I would love to be connected to more women struggling with similar challenges. Looking forward to challenges in 2017!

      Treating fur babies is totally legit!! I’m so glad you found weightlifting. One of my best friends is in your age group (Donna Spinola). Hopefully we can all meet up at competition soon. Are you going to nationals?
