Hey guys! While my life has slowed down considerably due to crutches there is also another important milestone that I recently reached. As of yesterday, September 1, 2015 I am now Alyssa Hammitt, MPH!! Woo! Oh my goodness I am so excited to finish this program and definitely learned a lot in this jam-packed 2 year craziness.
But Anyway not to get sentimental, but here is a picture that my cohort snapped on Monday after we finished our presentations. These women are some of the kindest, most generous, and passionate people and I am so glad I went through the program with them!
After all that sentimentality…here is the food part.
Here is a glimpse into the life of a recovering bunionator. Sunday seems like a great place to start.
8 am: wake-up and take a shower (p.s. showering is the worst). Balancing on one foot while getting into and out of a slippery tup leaves for a lot of opportunities to fall. So far there has only been one casualty…
9am: Mass. Of course we were late because everything takes longer with crutches, and let me tell you, you can’t inconspicuously crutch into a church.
10:15 am: Starbucks! Iced Coffee with 2 pumps of hazelnut and 2% milk is my jam!
10:30-12: Crutch 4 blocks to and from the St. Paul Farmer’s Market…so SWEATY. But hey as my husband says no one can stop this (almost) Dietitian from getting some veggies. We did have a giant Sweet Tango apple at the market to hold us over.
12:30: Breakfast is served (Finally). We were both starving and inhaled some oatmeal and berries!
5pm: Potluck with my cohort and the new incoming students. Sadly no pictures taken of this great spread. I mostly stuck to vegetables as you never know when gluten can pop into a dish that is unlabeled. Oh and I had like 5 of these cinnamon rhubarb muffins Chris graciously made! They are soo good!
8:30 pm: Secret Dairy queen run after leaving nutritious dinner. Reese’s blizzard hit the spot and helped me to carbo load for my presentation the next day.
Have a great Wednesday!
