I did it!

I'm proud to let everyone know that as of 12:30pm on Wednesday April 22nd, I passed my PhD defense with flying colors!!!

I can now officially call myself "Dr Forsythe"! So exciting!

After 5 great years at the #1 Kinesiology program in the U.S., and 12 years total of post-secondary education, I'm now D.O.N.E.!!!!!

It's hard to believe this day is actually here! Wow!

I'll be back to blogging once the weekend (and celebration) has passed. A few things I'll touch upon will be:
  1. My journey to a better body. After 4 months of sitting on my butt writing my dissertation and 1 month where I didn't even go to the gym, I have to say I'm not looking that bikini-body ready. I'll outline my training plan and eating plan to acheive my goals.
  2. My experiences in my dietetic internship (that ends June 26th).
  3. Important topics pertaining to both my books, like brands of glucomannan and foods choices
  4. Athletic Amenorrhea and my own personal experiences.
Also, I want to wish my good friends Jonathan Fass congratulations for graduating with his Dr of Physical Therapy on the same day I had my defense. Good things come to those that work hard :P Way to go buddy!!

AWESOME!!!! WHOOOO HA! Killer news to hear and congrats there Doc! How does it feel? Big celebration plans?

If you have any words of wisdom on the process, throw them my way as I am finishing up my dissertation experiment now. I can relate in a small way the amount of time, dedication and passion it takes to finish. Congrats again!

congrats again Doc!
Rock on

Congratulations Cass! I'm sure that you will credit many people for helping you along the way, but there is no doubt that you paved your way. Marvel in the feeling awhile. "Dr.Forsythe" sounds great!
