I am trying out a new Friday post that will allow me to recap the week. I’m considering adding or changing a few of the “top 3s”, so it will be a work in progress. I hope you enjoy!
Top 3 things I ate:
-grilled kale & cheese sandwich with roasted red pepper & tomato soup
-baked oatmeal with runny peanut butter
-microwave “omelette” with 1 egg + 1 egg white + kale + feta cheese / plain yogurt + frozen blueberries
Top 3 ups:
-Catching up with friends. Over the weekend we got to spend time with our dear friends who live a few states away. The best friends are the ones you can pick up where you left off without any hesitations!
That meant extra time with my main squeeze too…
-Walk/run outdoors. I skipped the gym everyday this week in favor of hitting the streets outdoors. Last night was my best night, because I ran most of the time and felt really good. I swear this warmer air brings out a new me.
-Meeting with an RD. The Charlotte Dietetic Association has a mentorship program where each semester student members have the opportunity to meet with an RD over coffee. I participated last semester and loved it, so I did it again. The RD I met with works with a bariatric surgeon and had a lot of interesting experiences to share with me. It is opportunities like this that help me remember why I am working so hard in school.
Top 3 downs:
-Getting sick. No fun, but thankfully I only missed out on one day of school and work. I’m already feeling a TON better.
-Oven breaking. Yes, my oven broke. My stove & broiler still work, but neither of those things bake cookies or roast potatoes very well. I’m hoping we can get this fixed soon, since I am the domestikated life and all! At least I know what to blame the raw chicken on now!
-Netflix-less. While we still have Netflix, we are currently in a place where we don’t what to watch! I am bummed that there is only 3 seasons of Worst Cooks of America on there, because we were loving that. Any suggestions?!
