The Semester Is Winding Down

The semester is winding down.  Classes finished today and I’ve got a week of exams standing between me and summer.  Of course, I only have two weeks of freedom before summer school starts, but I’ll take what I can get.

I’ve been having the hardest time getting out of bed in the morning and today was not the day that broke the streak.  I’ll need to treat my two free weeks like a bedtime boot camp or I’m going to be hurting during summer school.  I ran out of time to workout so instead I drove the dog with me while I parked the car and then walked him home from school.

It was nice to take him somewhere new, though I wish he would have found a better place to do his business than the middle of the quad!

I did a quick outfit change at home and then I was walking back to school, breakfast in hand.

This smoothie combo is a winner!  1.5 Tbsp chia seeds, 1 cup of lemonade, and 1 cup of frozen strawberries.

Frozen strawberry lemonade can’t be beat and the chia seeds give it a nice hit of omega-3s.

I had less time this morning because my statistics teacher let me come in early to check over the homework.  All of my assignments are now in (a week early) and I finished today’s practice test and checked my answers (all correct!) before class was half over so I’m feeling good for the final.

Lunch was eaten in the car on the way to my last clinic observation of the semester.  Bagelwiches are a nice, one-handed item.

I had a Cinnamon Raisin Bagel Thin with jalapeño cream cheese and Applegate Farms’ Smoked Turkey.

Plus an Empire apple.

My last day of clinic went great.  I did another outpatient observation and I’m pretty much convinced I want to do outpatient when I grow up.  I love the amount of interaction RDs get with their outpatient clients!  While I was there we saw three patients, two type 2 diabetics and a GI issue.  Getting an hour (+) with each of them was great; it seems like they all took a lot away from their appointments.

My last night class went well and suddenly, I was free!  I didn’t have much time to workout; once I made it home and changed I could only get one loop around the block before it got dark.  It was just was well though, I’m not sure I had a 2nd loop in me!  1.2 miles in 10:55.  <– that’s more than a minute faster than any of my previous times!!

Dinner was easy peasy leftovers.

Bow tie pasta and roasted zucchini with peasy pesto, drizzled with 1 Tbsp evoo.

I’ve never been so glad to see a bowl of pasta in my life.  The only thing I’m more excited about is getting my head on a pillow.
