So, I am happy to report that I successfully defended my thesis and it was such an enjoyable experience! I had a lot of fun being able to talk about my research and fielding questions from my committee, and I am excited to keep on conducting health communication research. Now I just need to apply my thesis edits and submit it to the graduate school, and then I'll be done! Woohoo!
I also recently got hired at the YMCA to be a member specialist, and I might even get the chance to teach fitness classes as well :D I am excited for this job, and I'm really looking forward to FREE ZUMBA!!! classes.
Aside from those updates, things are status quo, and I'm really happy that I have some more free time now that thesis is completed. I feel like a real human being again :-)
Anyway, here's some of my meals from the week. I hope you find my plates both aesthetically pleasing and inspiring!
1) Chicken thighs, sweet potato, pumpkin puree, blackberries, and greens
2) Ground turkey, brussel sprouts, broccoli/cauliflower whip, kalamata olives, black berries, and greens
3) Ground pork, asparagus, avocado, plantain chips, blackberries, and greens
4) Chicken thighs, broccoli/cauliflower whip, kalamata olives, zucchini noodles, avocado, and greens
5) Yucca root!
So, that concludes my favorite meals for this week. Have any of my lovely readers tried out anything new this week? If so, let me know! I'd love to hear/see what you all have been whipping up :-)
Until next time!
