I can’t believe we are in the middle of August already! Time as flown by and I didn’t capture any of my July favorite moments.
Some of you may have known, but I defended my thesis research on August 2nd and I PASSED! After 4 years, in addition to 2 years of undergrad nutrition classes to apply for a dietetic internship and a year long dietetic internship, I finally have a MS in Nutrition and Physical Performance and get to add one more credential to the end of my name! MS, RDN, LDN, ACSM! I would have not changed the past 4 years for anything. I was lucky to have found my passion when I did and now I can enjoy a career I love!
With that said, July was packed with fun, but I also was immersed in a lot of data analysis and paper writing for my thesis research! It was a GO GO GO kind of month with little sleep and no time to think about being stressed!
My favorite philadelphia coffee shop so far is Elixr Coffee, which has quiet chill atmosphere and of course quality coffee! My favorite coffee drink in July was Starbuck’s “new” Orange Spice Iced Coffee, which has a unique flavor combination that just works!
And now…The Pure Fun in July
July 4th Weekend- Sea Isle, NJ
A can’t forget a few sunset pics…of course! My love for sunsets will never get old!
July 4th weekend was filled with good home cooked food by the Hutchinson Family, good refreshing drinks, and lots of good company, which is always a recipe for a good weekend!
Family Beach Weekend
1 week before I was going to Saint Louis to defend my thesis research, I submitted my paper and was off for a R&R weekend at the beach, where my family was already enjoying a full week at the beach!
I got to spend more time with Liv, my niece! She is 7 months old in these pics It was her first day at the beach because it was rainy the rest of the week!
July’s Captured Moment……..Feeding Liv Real Food!
Instead of getting my typical Custard’s Last Stand blizzard with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Butterfinger, I decided to go a little bit healthier with a Banana Whip at a new ice cream shop in Margate, NJ!
The beach life always motivates me to get your workouts in! I went on a boardwalk run on day and a bike ride the other day. I finally gave my road bike some attention at the beach and went on an hour bike ride! I am still getting used to my clips….I did fall while standing, but I didn’t hurt myself and at least I got that first fall out of the way
August already has been very eventful and continues to get busier and busier! A good busy!
Stay tuned for the reveal of my new Summer crockpot pulled pork recipe this weekend Spicy, sweet, and simply D-lish!
