I guess that extra hour of sleep from daylight savings time did nothing for me. Either that, or I’ve reached mid-semester slump and am just over it all! Yeah, I think it’s that one. I am falling asleep on my journal articles! #Gradstudentstruggles
On Sundays I usually make a workout schedule for the week, but since it’s the start of the new month I decided to let someone else do the work for me! This month, I’ll be doing my best to follow the Blogilates #MOVEmber workout calendar. I really wanted to do a booty workout today, which is exactly what was scheduled for today on the Blogilates calendar! It must’ve been fate.

Today’s “Sunday Bunday” workout took me about 45 mins and burned almost 300 calories. That’s a little bit less than what 45 mins of the elliptical would have done, but I know that strength training/Pilates will benefit me more in the long run.
Post workout, I made a peanut butter protein shake. I used one scoop of Aria Women’s Vanilla Protein Powder that I bought at Trader Joe’s, and blended it with one cup of vanilla flax milk and one tablespoon of peanut butter.
After I finished my shake, I went to the library to print off journal articles. I need to write a research paper about mindfulness based techniques for treating binge eating disorder, which should be really interesting and right up my alley, but today I was just not feeling it. I forced myself to read 4 articles before I called it quits. I only have another month left of school (for good!!) so I need to push for just a little bit longer, but I am so burnt out. Ugh.
Once I got home from the library, I poured a can of Campbell’s butternut squash soup into a pot for lunch. I ate my soup with lots of cheese in my favorite cat mug 🙂 . On the side, I had a piece of whole wheat toast with Light Smartbalance with flaxseed oil. For dessert, I enjoyed two mini Reese’s cups.
I am just too tired to do any more work today, so I’m going to call it a day and read the November issue of Prevention magazine that I bought a subscription to this morning. $20 for a year of the magazine that helped me want to become a dietitian? Count me in!
