Yesterday I brought my 50 pound chemistry book to the gym. While on the stair stepper, I read the entire chapter. Normally this task would take hours, but somehow, while working out, connections are being made in my brain! I completely understood the chapter. PLUS was able to memorize 10 reactions on how to turn alcohols and alkanes into alkenes, and back again! Yesterday was the test…I feel like I did well (but I don’t know yet).
Today I spent 30 minutes on the stair master (I’m old school.. I prefer it to the elliptical, and its always available). Then 30 minutes on an incline on the treadmill. Then a few short strength training exercises (lunges and pushups). While working out I read this:

Today’s breakfast and lunch menu plan:
