It's Almost April

I can't wait to share with you my next upcoming weeks! I will be shadowing a physical medicine clinic in Arlington Heights this week and the following week, I will be venturing off to sunny Southern California to shadow a naturopathic doctor. Not only am I excited to travel to California, but also I am excited to see an ND in a licensed state while being able to see my family all at the same time.

The picture I included just encompasses how my life has been lately. Sunny, happy and SUNNY! I cannot believe that we have been blessed with this amazing weather, and seeing my nephew with his big smile just makes me even more excited for the little one I'll get to hold in September! :) Although we have had this joyous weather, I heard it's going to change soon and be a bit chillier than the mere 70-80º we've had, which I am fine with considering I am literally an oven right now!

Ryan and I went to enjoy the weather this weekend and had some amazing RAW food at "Borrowed Earth Café" in Downers Grove. It's a vegan raw restaurant that always makes me feel AMAZING afterwards because it's really just raw vegetables that are transformed. You should try it at least once as a student. It's so close to NUHS. It made me feel good to feel like myself again. This pregnancy has definitely taken my body into completely different directions of emotional and physical feelings. In the beginning, the only calories I could stomach was junk food! Bleh! But now I am finally "indulging" in my normal meals filled with lots of fruit, vegetables and good healthy protein! Nutrition is really key to a healthy life in general but especially in pregnancy.

We (you and I) have been on this journey together for a long time and I can't believe that it is coming to an end soon. It's bittersweet really. I have enjoyed writing this blogs, receiving insight and questions from you all, and it has given me my own way to reflect. I hope I have been able to help you make some important decisions in your life and give you an honest and open outlook into what NUHS has in store for you if you choose it as a part of your journey! :)

Have a good week everyone!
