Hello!!! I hope your week is going well! I honestly cannot believe tomorrow is Friday. The beginning of the week crawled, but the second half has flown by. I’m not complaining. I woke up this morning to see that my ankle was less swollen and feeling better, just a little tender. Breakfast this morning was kashi go lean crunch, fat free milk, and a sliced banana also…coffee!
Lunch was a turkey on a whole wheat wrap with laughing cow and lettuce. On the side I had some baby carrots.
Snacks were almonds and cashews and some fruit, mangos and strawberries.
Since my ankle was still a little swollen and tender, I decided to skip my Crossfit workout. Better safe than sorry. I want to make sure my ankle is feeling good before I push it, I am currently icing it as I type. I had a few other things to do today after work anyhow. I picked up my cap and gown for graduation!
Cap and gown:
My M.Ed, School Counseling hood. I am actually liking the colors.
Class of 2012!
I am excited to wear this in a few weeks. It took me close to 3 and a half years to earn my Master’s Degree and I am psyched to graduate and be done for a while. I actually wrote my very last grad school paper today when I got home from picking up the cap and gown and e-mailed it off to my professor. It was a reflection on my experience. I am not sure how I fit that into 5 pages. I could have written a novel!
(grande skinny vanilla latte is great paper writing fuel).
I am still not technically done though. The director of my grad program is coming in on Monday to observe me teaching a guidance lesson. Then I am DONE! Like DONE, DONE, DONE! That feeling will be awesome!
After the paper was sent I made myself dinner. I had some pesto baked chicken, roasted brussel sprouts and homemade sweet potato fries with organic ketchup on the side for dipping.
Pesto chicken is one of my favorites! I just spread the pesto on the chicken and bake it for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees. I usually flip it half way through.
Bootcut jeans (Arden B), White t-shirt (Target), Red cardigan (American Eagle), Dip dyed scarf (H&M), Silver Chuck T’s. I love that I can wear jeans and sneaks to work if I want. I don’t do it often because I don’t like to blend in with the students, but when I do I enjoy being comfortable
