What exactly do you do when you’re absolutely starving but nothing looks good or sounds delicious?! That was my biggest problem yesterday! I had my off day, where all I did was go to all of my classes, work on homework, and enjoy living my evening in sweatpants and no makeup. I woke up around 6am and at 7am Bryan, Kelsey and I headed to breakfast. I had a piece of a muffin, grapes, and oatmeal w/ bananas. It’s great having a friend like Kelsey around whose in the same major as me and who lives right next door. I definitely think one of the most important things in college is to make friends with guys and girls in your major! Although the dietetics major is a very competitive field, it doesn’t hurt to have friends to help you through the process.
I went into work after breakfast and left at 11 to my class, which happened to be cancelled! I had time to grab my mid morning snack of greek yogurt and a banana. My next class consisted of me on Pinterest, pinning some of my favorite subjects: clothes, shoes, jewelry and of course nutrition related pins! Find me on pinterest: Tabitha Daley
My AHN (advanced human nutrition, keep up with the abbreviations folks!) exam wasn’t as bad as I expected, but it was one of those exams where you finish and think “I have absolutely no clue what grade I just got…” Luckily that was the las class of the day and I managed to get home at 5pm and take a breather before I started my cultural nutrition class for my Human Food and Consumption Patterns class. The idea behind the project is to research the food culture of another country and basically compare it to the USA. I was assigned Spain, and it didn’t take me too long to get through the project. It was interesting what I found. Did you know one of the traditions for New Years in Spain is to eat 12 grapes at the stroke off midnight to ensure good luck for all of the upcoming months? Interesting!
I made some pasta for dinner: whole wheat penne with broccoli! Bryan seemed happy to come home to the warm pasta after his hockey game 🙂 we’re planning on making home made salsa this week, can’t wait to see how it turns out!
Today was an interesting morning, as I woke up and waited for the bus to campus…but it never showed up! I quickly checked twitter to see the bus schedule and because of the icy conditions, the buses weren’t running at their usual pick up spots. Bryan was so sweet and offered to drive me 🙂 Because my morning was set back 20 minutes because of this inconvenience, breakfast was delayed and I decided to get an early lunch: a vegetarian spinach wrap, coffee, and an apple. Not the best combination of course, but I needed my caffeine! I worked at the post office for about 5 hours and am now blogging away until my class at 2:30. It feels good to have most of my projects and assignments out of the way so I can just relax and enjoy the present. I’ve always struggled with stress and time; not time management exactly, but feeling as though I never have enough time, no matter how early I finish projects. I need to find new ways to relax and calm myself!
