Another Week

I’m so happy it’s the weekend! I had a good,busy week with school and work.  I also shopped for and cooked control meals for a study — spending time in the kitchen making food and setting the table is a little bit different than what I thought I’d be doing in grad school 😉 We don’t have those study days that often, though, and it’s actually really fun! I kind of enjoy weighing all the food also…weird?

Last night I met up with some coworkers for drinks and dinner.  We hit a dive bar called Bud’s and then walked across the street to Chelo’s, a Mexican restaurant.  This artwork was on the wall, and I feel it demonstrates how I approached my enchiladas:


(I apologize for the blurry pic — We were pretty sure this depicts a bear fighting a bull…or a chupacabra)

This weekend the weather is supposed to change a bit for the colder, although certainly nothing like the Northeasterners are experiencing!  I am hoping to spend a little bit of time outside, and also get some reading done!



Hello Again

Wow, I definitely had higher ambitions for this little blog than I have committed to, but I think I am getting in the groove of the new semester.  Things have been busy! Should this be my next read?


Actually, I am loving grad school (even when it’s a little crazy).  My classes are great, my research is actually progressing, and work with the athletes has been picking up.  I hope to get a lot more out of my time in this program and I feel like my excitement with it has renewed lately.

Catching Up

Happy New Year!  I am ready to leave 2012 behind — although it was not a bad year, if I got to choose one year to live over I would probably not choose that one — and make 2013 better.  I have just a few goals for this year…

1) Graduate!  I’ll (hopefully) be finishing my Master’s in nutrition this summer

2) Find a job I love

3) Read 50 *new-to-me* books — I am the worst about re-reading old favorites instead of branching out!

4) Do a handstand <— needed a fun fitness goal 🙂

5) Run a half marathon, and run it faster than last year (I ran 1:55)

I love checking out blogs to read everyone’s goals for the year!  People come up with the most creative things to challenge and improve themselves.
