Good luck. It's going to be fine. Don't worry... your adviser wouldn't let you do it if it wasn't great! You've spoken in public many times and presented research. You're smart and confident and witty and sharp. You don't have a thing to worry about! Go raise your glutes and blow off some steam, doctor. You're going to breeze right through this!

Thanks viva!

I was cool as a cucumber last night, but now that I am sitting in my hotel getting ready (defense will start in about 4.5 hours) I am shaking like a leaf!

Going out for some food and a pint of beer! Flying back to Cali tomorrow. Thanks everyone! :)

thanks everyone!! VBBF people are the best! :)

omg, I had the most epic trip home ever! Took 34.5 hours because of a snow storm in Minnesota. Stupid snow. Anyway, back now, kind of a zombie, but anxious to start having a real life and not thinking about school for the first time ever.

Time to get diet and workouts back on track. I fell off the wagon the last week or so with prepping for my defense. No excuses! Weights 3x/week, morning cardio, and back to IF. No grabbing candy in the break room at work!

15/11/10:

Squats:
45x5
5 sets @ 65x5

Bench:
45x5
5 sets @ 55x5

Inverted Rows:
3 sets of 10 reps

Bent Knee Push-ups:
3 sets of 10 reps (second set kind of sucked, ROM wasn't the greatest)

Reverse Crunches:
1 set of 10
1 set of 7
