Happy November 2nd everyone! Today I’m catching you up on what’s going on currently…
Current Book: reading for my medical nutrition therapy class. Believe me, this stuff is really interesting. Sadly, however, it is usually the reading that I skimp on. I am glad I opted to buy this book rather than renting, because I want to dig into more over Christmas break!
Current Music: You may find this funny, but I am such a fan of 1D! Their music is so fun to me. If you want to fall down a rabbit hole, go watch one of their music videos… you may end up watching their entire story. PS I think they’re doing just fine without Zayn. 😉
Current Guilty Pleasure: baking. I don’t feel so much guilty about the act of baking, but guilty because of all the stuff I should actually be doing but am neglecting. I like the terminology Laura offered me, “procasti-baking.” My life.
Current Drink: Dasani flavored drops. I’m always trying to curb my diet soda intake while upping my H2O intake (but obviously not trying to decrease my artificial sweetener intake, lol). These were good- I even flavored a protein shake with them.
Current Food: Apples! I strayed away from them for a while, because they are high in FODMAPs. But after a trip to the mountains to go apple picking, I couldn’t help myself. I’ve found that chopping them up rather than eating them whole helped with digestion. My favorite snack was warm chopped apples topped with plain Greek yogurt and cinnamon.
Current Need: a boost of motivation to work out. Ah, getting to the gym has felt impossible these past few weeks. My top exuses have been that it is raining almost every other day and that I have a ton of school work to do. I hate it because I know I feel so much better when I do work out, but it’s been a stressor trying to get myself to do so!
Current Bane of my Existence: my foot. After “chipping” the top of my toe with a 45 lb plate at the gym, I’ve been stuck in a boot. It’s frustrating because the pain has gone down almost completed, but I still can’t put it in a shoe.
Current Indulgence: tasting everything. I just want my taste buds to live an adventurous life, ya know what I mean?
Current Confession: I have foodie dreams about this veggie burger from my trip to Charleston…
Current Mood: Antsy about deadlines that I’m too quickly approaching, but excited about the way my work is turning out!
Current link: My instagram. Let’s follow each other!
October was a great month that flashed by before my eyes. November is here and that means classes are wrapping up (and in full DEADLINE swing) and Thanksgiving is right around the corner!
What was your favorite part of October?
