This (god-awful) photo sure feels official!
I had my first day of clinical practice this afternoon. It went well, and wasn’t as scary as I was expecting, but we’ll see how I feel once we actually start doing stuff 😉 For now there’s not a whole lot to report.
I had statistics before I headed to the hospital, but again I’m not quite sure what to make of it yet. I do know that there is already a conflict with stats and clinic in February, but I’m hoping that knowing about it this far in advance will let me figure out a solution.
I didn’t eat anything after my little breakfast and I made it through the hospital without a hunger issue so as long as I have my retainers (probably another month or so) I’ll probably stick with that schedule on Tuesdays. But on Thursdays with a 3rd class in the evening I’ll have to pack food.
This bowl was as big a fail as breakfast! I just don’t like Stonyfield yogurt any more. I love the company’s values and flavor offerings so I want to like it, but the texture isn’t right. Checking the ingredient list I think it must be the pectin because the yogurt is thick in a gross goopy, snotty way. It sort of reminds me of smoothies made with xanthan gum, and not in a good way. I ate the top layer off – I wasn’t about to waste a S’mores Cup! – but had to throw away the rest of the yogurt.
Even though I was hungry, I managed to hop on another productive streak before dinner. I cleaned the kitchen, did the dishes, and finished updating my clinic notebook. And roasted some broccoli into perfection for dinner.
This easy leftover meal hit the spot. A small serving of Orange Peel Shrimp, a 1/3 cup of rice, and a bunch of roasted broccoli all tossed together.
Yum. But the rest of the day’s disappointing meals have caught up with me and I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to eat a snack before bed. Right now I’ve got to hurry into the shower so I’m ready for the 9pm State of the Union. FYI – The 2012 State of the Union is live-streaming here for those of us that don’t have cable.
Have you eaten a Stonyfield yogurt recently? What was your opinion?
