  1. I think this is one of the places where I’ve really dropped the ball the past 2+ years of medical school. It is SO hard to find time to exercise. These are great tips, though! thanks for sharing!

  2. I’m grappling with this as I start residency. I’d like to set up good habits now, but am having trouble with motivation. Thanks for the help, and get used to seeing me on this blog. It’s a great resource 🙂
