More Productive Than Him

I definitely had productivity on my side this afternoon. Well, at least for a little while; that was before I ended up taking an impromptu 45 minute nap in the midst of my studying. I guess that’s what I get for studying in my bed and snuggled under the covers…

Even still, despite my nap, I busted through a whole chapter today and am finally starting to get into the interesting stuff.

To be honest, the first four chapters of the NASM certification were a little dry for me. Granted, they are absolutely, 100% necessary to know, but it was basically more of laying the groundwork for what is to come.

Topics like the nervous system, cardiorespiratory system, muscular, and skeletal systems (amongst a TON of others) were covered which, although critical to know, are just not all that exciting for me.

Luckily, I’m managing to power through and with today’s chapter, I was finally able to see how things are beginning to tie in together. I am really happy with my pace so far, and hopefully will be able to keep up the productivity.

Either way, I know I’ll always be more productive than this guy…


Besides a brief few minutes of attempting to attack my hand and the pen that was in it while writing notecards this afternoon, he has done basically nothing since you last saw him.


I think maybe he’s getting sick of me trying to take his picture every five minutes, no?



Awake or not, I’m still snapping his little mug. Winking smile



I told Jay that I wanted to attempt to clean out some of the leftovers from the fridge tonight for dinner, and we actually did a fairly good job of it. He finished off the rest of the pasta salad, while I put another good dent in some leftover Pumpkin Black Bean Soup.


We also had a little bit of brown rice and corn leftover from one of last week’s dinners, so I ended up tossing that right into the soup. Now I’m actually thinking that the next time I make this, I’ll have to add those ingredients. It was a GREAT addition!


On the side I also toasted up an English muffin spread with some light butter, which served as a perfect dunker/dipper for the soup once again.


I was also super excited to have an excuse to break out my favorite soup set.


In true Courtney fashion, I ended up bringing dinner into the living room so I could watch kick Jay’s butt in some Wheel of Fortune. I love this show!


Now, the two of us are impatiently waiting for the new season of How I Met Your Mother to come on. I never used to watch this show much until last season, but Jay got me hooked and now I can’t wait.

Question for the Evening:

What TV shows are you looking forward to coming back on the air this fall?

I’m also beyond excited for Modern Family to come back…this Wednesday! WOOO!

    Your soup looks so good! I am a TV junky, so I am pretty excited this week. I’m most excited for Big Bang Theory, Mike & Molly, Modern Family, and Two & A Half Men (but really just because I want to see how they handle Charlie’s exit). I’m sort of embarrassed to admit that I’m looking forward to Dancing with the Stars and Biggest Loser too.

    Okay I am excited for too many shows – How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Glee, Dexter, Modern Family, The Middle and of course Vampire Diaries which started last week. I have a problem I know 😉

    I’m definitely a Glee/Sing-off/Grey’s Anatomy type of girl. They all come back this week!

    happy studying! I’m taking a break from a paper as we speak.

    P.S. I tried bodypump last week and ended up going every other day. I loved it!

    I remember when I was doing my nutrition specialist course, I HATED all the science-y/technical bits- was such a relief when they were over! Can’t wait for Modern Family either, seeing them at the Emmys got me all the more geared up for season 3!

    Sounds like you’re doing amazingly with all of your studying – good work! 😀 Even when it is dry and un-interesting, when you power through and get to the juicy stuff it must feel so good! :-)
    Your soup and sandwich bowl/plate is so cute! I love it! <3 And muffin + butter = my idea of deliciousness, fo sho! 😉
    PS: Goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway…those pix of Cody are so cute!

    Hubby and I watch way too much TV in the fall. We’re like 2 little old hermits.
    I’m looking forward to Dexter, Hawaii Five O, Vampire Diarys(gotta get my eye candy), Sons of Anarchy, and Charlies Angels.
