Congratulations, Boyfriend! You survived residency!
Ok, I'm not going to go into a lot of details, I'll just post a lot of pictures instead!

1) The dress looked good (though maybe not the pose!). I DID straighten my hair, and I DID regret it later as the weather stayed gloomy.


2) Everyone looked great, but especially my friend, Nurse, who looked smokin' hot in her white dress!

3) It's a little less than fair that I have to wear impossibly high heals to look like a person of normal height while Nurse got to wear more comfortable shoes.

And then things got silly!

Yes, there were more than just 4 people at this formal but I don't think others would appreciate their photographic internet debut here!

The End.

Food Recap: I did not eat cheese, chicken or eggplant. I did NOT hold myself to any other goal. I drank and ate apps, mains and desserts with abandon.

This was proved to me in the morning when I woke up feeling huge, headachy and not pleasant at all.

But I rallied with a full day of work, 5 miles at the gym and a delicious dinner for 2 at home: Poached Salmon with Basil/Lime Sauce and Sesame Green Beans.

Sorry, today is dodgeball playoffs and I have every intention of a long outdoor walk and a yummy lunch. Will post delicious dinner later tonight!

    I'm a recent graduate from medical school and a pathology resident living in New York City. Like most girls living in the city, I've found that a lot of my social life revolves around the regular consumption of high-calorie food and alcoholic beverages. I've decided to start a blog about how I am trying to beat the bulge by eating and cooking defensively between social engagements and how even a busy girl can fit exercise into a busy life.
