Wow, my brain is so mushy right now I started to spell “mush” wrong in the title! It’s now 8:45pm and I just got out of a Chem midterm. I’ve been doing chem since 11am today, so my brain is pretty much gone!

My morning started with Crossfit. I had a piece of pumpkin bread beforehand-seriously, this has made the biggest difference in how I feel during my morning weight lifting!


The WOD was a burner. It was sets of 250m row+one exercise for a minute, with the three exercises repeated twice through and rest between sets. The exercises were its ups, kettle bell swings, and burpees. I kept a pretty consistent pace on the rower throughout which was good though!

I was more than ready for some protein when I got back!


I also had a cappuccino because Chem.

After class, I ran back to the dining hall for a veggie filled lunch. Roasted veggies, Greek salad, and bulgar with cranberries.


I also had a small serving of hot chocolate cake. I’ve finally learned how to serve myself a reasonable size!

After an afternoon spent studying, it was dinnertime. Yes, all I did today was Chemistry and eat.

On the menu was chicken, mac n cheese, salad, and roasted broccoli.


In terms of “progress,” one thing I’ve noticed since making more of an effort to eat well and moderately is that my eating from day to day is way more consistent. There aren’t any super calorie spiked days, which seems like a good thing! Consistency is key!

And now I’m off to sleep or start some more homework. Sorry for the lack of coherency today!

    When you study, do you usually sit the whole time? I’ve been doing my studying standing up, on a “standing desk” (my dresser). I feel like I get too antsy and sometimes even more tired when sitting too long 😛

      I usually do sit. I love that idea but unfortunately my feet get pretty sore when I stand too long!
