Yesterday was a really great day in psychiatry. I got to see my first patient with borderline personality disorder. I’ve never met someone with borderline, and it’s been a tough personality disorder for me to wrap my head around. But let me tell you, after meeting this patient yesterday, I will never forget what borderline looks like in a patient. It was so great to have that learning experience.
I knew the day had to be a good day when I decided to add some chocolate chips to my oatmeal. Always a good decision.
The rest of my eats for the day went unpictured because they were super boring: lunch was eggplant and a tofu hot dog- super random, with some cherries dipped in PB2 (my new favorite snack), snack was a protein pancake with blueberries, dinner was 2 eggs followed by 1/2 a nectarine, a glass of almond milk, a tbs of almond butter, and I finished the night off with a zucchini muffin.
Over the weekend, I made 3 different types of bread to send to my dad for his birthday which is tomorrow! So Dad- stop reading here!
I feel as though I must share this trick with you because it is the best trick to make bread or muffins for a friend/coworker/morning meeting. Best of all, it takes 2 seconds! My trick is to use a pre-made bread mix. Then I just add in shredded zucchini/carrots/banana/apple depending on what flavor bread I want to make. I’ve used this trick before when I made apple bread.
This time, I used Jiffy bread mix. In 3 bowls I added shredded carrots and walnut for carrot bread, shredded zucchini and chocolate chips for zucchini bread, and mashed banana for banana bread. I also added a hefty dose of cinnamon to each. The carrot got some extra pumpkin pie spice and the zucchini got a little nutmeg. Voila. 3 different types of bread ready to go in no time!
When I got to the gym after school yesterday, I realized I had left my phone in the car which had my workout plan on it. Being the lazy person that I am, I obviously didn’t want to walk out to the car to get it. I go to the gym to workout and drown myself in sweat, but walk to the car?? No no, that is far too much effort.
So I made up my own leg workout. It went something like this:
Squats holding barbell x 10
Step ups onto bench holding dumbbells x 10 on each leg
Repeat for 4 rounds
Wall sits for 1 minute
Suitcase cruches on the bench x 20
Walking lunges holding dumbbell x 10 on each side
Repeat for 3 rounds
I finished it off with 20 minutes on the stair climber, just to make sure my legs are nice and sore today. Definitely sweaty on my way home.
Hope ya’ll have a good day!
