My 1st week back at school is coming to an end. I feel pretty great about my course load this semester. I am taking Food Service & Management, Mineral Metabolism, Community Nutrition, and Medical Nutrition Therapy. I also have an internship I’m continuing with the RD at a local assisted living facility on Fridays.
It’s going to be a busy one, but I feel excited about my schedule. It makes for coming home late most nights, but I believe we will get into a rhythm soon enough. I’ve been sorting through everything the last couple of days, so this post is going to be a stream of random thoughts! I have a feeling many posts in the future will be this way….
Anyways, I am currently sitting here in a little pain, because I scarfed down way too much watermelon. I know watermelon makes me feel BLEH (high FODMAP- especially at the rate I consumed it), but it is my favorite and I just HAD to have one more before the summer came to a close. Sorry body, you’re welcome tastebuds.
This morning I visited my favorite local coffee shop, Nova’s Bakery, and treated myself to a delicious almond milk latte to go with my overnight oats. I felt like after getting out of bed to make it to a 6:45 am boot camp group fitness class, I should reward myself with a $5 coffee drink. How the heck some of you get up for classes before 6 am, I don’t even want to know. The class was INSANE and I made the stupid mistake of not eating beforehand. I did the same thing before my first cycling class and I never went back. I will be smarter next week…. I’m coming for your fast-acting carbs!
Alright… y’all tell me exactly how unacceptable this is. My sister would cry if she knew I was wearing open-toed shoes without any toenail polish on. (It’s okay Leigh, I painted my toes this evening).
One of my goals this semester is to drink more plain water. I am carrying around this 32 oz bottle and as long as it is cold, it is goes down pretty easily. The goal is two per day plus what I normally drink w/ meals and stuff. Now if only this bottle were spill proof, we’d be golden.
The following text made my heart quite happy. These things go a long way, fellas.
This past week I got a new pair of glasses. Have you guys ever heard of 39dollarglasses.com? You can get lenses and frames for 39 bucks! I think it is such a steal.
And that’s all the randomness I got for you today. Until next time. 😀
I’m linking up with the fabulous Amanda for TOL.
How do you ensure you get enough water in?
