On the weekend I was basically doing dissertation stuff the entire time. Went for a few walks. I'm going pretty crazy at this point. Diet hasn't been the greatest. Either I am eating everything in sight or I am not eating at all. Oh well, one way or another, it will be over come Friday.

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 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!

Haven't been waking up for morning cardio...I didn't realize how far behind on sleep I was. I've been letting myself sleep a bit later and getting rested up.

Was feeling super bloated and crampy and didn't want to go work out at lunch, but I made myself do it anyway.

I'm finally starting to feel like I'm caught up on sleep, so will be working morning cardio back in.
