TGIF right?! Here’s what’s been going on in the life of Lauren.
1// Last weekend Husband came to Tampa for a few days. We tried a new (to us) restaurant called Miguelitos with friends. They had great margaritas and sangria. I loved the outside courtyard area, and I can’t wait to go back once it gets just a liiiittle bit cooler outside.
2// I only have one more week of my internal medicine rotation. I keep saying it, but time is just flying. These last few months have been a blur. It’s good because every day puts me closer to graduation, but also closer to EORs and the PANCE. Yikes. (Check out my PANCE study schedule here).
3// My trip home to New Orleans is in two weeks! I am so excited to see my family and friends. And just as excited to eat all of the food. I sense some snowballs and beignets in my future.
4// My skin has been in a funk lately. If the blemishes are cleared, then its flakey. When the flakiness gets under control, my under eyes get dry. I started using Drunk Elephant TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum this week in addition to my tretinoin cream in hopes to get my face a little more under control. I’ll update you on the results.
5// I recently heard about the Lady Project and discovered they have a chapter in Tampa. Their latest event was called #badasswomen, and of course I’m like “wait, I too am bad ass.” I would like to find out some more info. Have any of you heard of it or are you members?
loving these 90s vibes, right?
Medical Fact// Hemoglobin A1c is a blood test for the diagnosis and monitoring of diabetes. A1c is formed when glucose attaches to hemoglobin in red blood cells. The hemoglobin A1c result tells the average glucose level of an individual over the past three months (the average lifespan of red blood cells). Non-diabetic patients should have an A1C under 5.7%. The diagnosis of diabetes is made at an A1C of 6.5% or above. The range in between is considered pre-diabetic. For diabetic patient’s to be in good control, we like their A1c levels to be under 7%.
Have a great weekend everyone!
