Exercise Challenge: Melissa Bender Fitness

Hi Everyone,

It has been an incredibly busy weekend! Jesse and I both had our graduation ceremony, and program celebration this weekend. We still have to finish our fieldwork, but it was great celebrating the fact that we are almost done with our Master's degree. :) 

Today I ran 3.6 miles, and then I did this workout. Yesterday I didn't have time to get in a workout. We had a delicious brunch at my sister's house, a celebration/awards ceremony at the school, and a BBQ at my other sister's house. I did get to play some whiffle ball though! 

I made some baked eggplant the other day, and it turned out delicious! I will be sharing the recipe.  Does anyone else have any eggplant recipes they really like? Please feel free to share!
