Hit it!!

Well...things are coming along quite nicely, if I do say so myself.

I got up this morning, had a green smoothie and went to the gym.  While I try to hustle through this month it's crucial that I keep working out so my stress levels stay somewhat normal.  After an intense 45 minute workout I came home and got to work!  Application- filled out.  Transcripts- requested.  Letters of Recommendation- requested.  I also did my JOB today (surprise surprise) and managed to eat healthy, vegan foods as well.  For breakfast I had a green smoothie (kale, spinach, a green apple, parsley, and some red seedless grapes), then post workout breakfast consisted of: 1/4 cup rolled oats, 1 tblspoon steel cut oats, 1 tblspoon quinoa, 1 tblspoon flaxseeds, and 1 table spoon almond butter.  For lunch I had udon noodles with peas and corn, and a corn/arugula salad on the side.  Been drinking my water like a maniac; almost finished 1.5 liters so far.  I also have the worst headache alive (caffeine headache maybe?)  I've been getting a lot of headaches lately.

I've also started my Letter of Intent.  The Letter of Intent and the GRE are the two most important steps in the application process (not to mention the letters of recommendation and the resume too);  I'm hoping to get the majority of the first draft of the Letter of Intent written this weekend; and I'm also applying to take the GRE this weekend too (have to pick the date. Frick).

WHO AM I????  Starting out this year with a bang folks.  I am NOT messing around.



  1. Awesome! it is going to be a year of great things for you!

  2. Dizzy,
    I just want you to know I wish you the best of luck getting into the graduate program. I'm just working on my associates degree but I may be where you are someday. Just have to wait and see. You are starting to get to me with your smoothies. we just bought a new blender and if you keep on with the smoothy talk, I may have to get some stuff and try it. When I'm convinced, I'll find your post with the recipe and let you know how it goes. wishing you a lovely day. Sunshine

  3. Wow- you are on fire! I am going to start stalking your menus. (I hear a personal smoothie maker starting up in my future) I am so proud of you. Not even a week in and you are going to knock it out of the park. You truly are inspiring Diz. Mwauh!
