Good morning! Is it seriously already Wednesday? I don’t know about you, but I feel like this week is flying by!
So last night, my brain was sort of fried and I really just didn’t have a whole lot to chat about, hence the lack of postage. As soon as I got home from work, I ended up getting pretty engrossed in my studying again, so that’s where I had to put all my energy. Priorities, my friends!
Cody, on the other hand, did not seem to appreciate my studying and was in need of some major attention. Do you think he was purposely trying to lay all over my study materials or what?
A good portion of my study time yesterday was spent going over all of the different muscle groups again. This has been one of the toughest areas for me to remember, so thanks to one of the massage therapists at work, I’ve begun attempting to come up with mnemonic devices to try and help me through (what can I say, must be the former teacher in me). For example:
The Rotator Cuff Musculature = S.I.T.T.S
- Teres Minor
- Teres Major
The Lower Leg Musculature = G.A.S.P.P
- Anterior Tibialis
- Posterior Tibialis
- Peroneus Longus
If anyone else happens to have any other awesome mnemonic devices for me, please…I’m all ears!
Amongst studying last night, some dinner was involved. Yesterday was the day to clear out all of the Thanksgiving leftovers, so I threw some away (so sad) and Jay and I took care of eating some of the rest.
We both finished up the rest of the brown butter mashed potatoes and applesauce.
And I had another big bowl of Turkey & Veggie Soup.
I deemed today a rest day from exercise (I’m now aiming for 2 rest days per week), so I thoroughly enjoyed a little extra sleep this morning before getting up and getting ready for the long day ahead of me.
For the past couple of days, I’ve been making a valiant effort to not stuff my face with sweets immediately after dinner, so my hunger levels come breakfast time have been much higher. Makes sense, obviously, so today’s breakfast was more than welcomed.
It’s been a while since we’ve done the PB & B English muffin, hasn’t it? Wooo-weee did I miss it!
I whipped up a quick pumpkin + peanut butter topping and loaded it onto a honey wheat English muffin, along with some banana slices, cinnamon, and a drizzle of honey. I also had the rest of the ‘naner on the side.
A nice change of pace, indeed!
I’ve got a quick conference call this morning and then it’s off to a long day of work. I’ll catch ya’ll later!
Questions for the Morning:
Do you ever use mnemonic devices to remember certain things?
Do you still have any Thanksgiving leftovers left?
What’s the best breakfast you’ve had so far this week?
