Had a great time at my first day!!
There are so many things that I really love about clinical nutrition that go way beyond the actual job of calculating and recommending nutrition support for patients.
Things like: charting, math, independent work, task lists, checking boxes, people interaction, a rewarding field.
I think if my life weren’t headed into bakeries + blogs that there’s a good chance I might have ended up loving clinical and going into the field.
That said, I only finished my FIRST day!!!
I snacked on a Bora Bora Sesame Cranberry bar and an apple around 4. Loved this sesame flavor!!!
I left work at 4:30 feeling more energized than drained. Always a good sign!
And then you won’t believe the vehicle that literally pulled up beside my car on my way home!!!!
[Don't worry about my driving safety - this is a reenactment in a parking lot]
I took a road home that I NEVER take due to right-hand turns and he just happened to be on his Monday ride home from the Great Harvest store he doesn’t work in but makes the inventory run from on Mondays. TOTAL coincidence!!
And he just happened to overhear me blasting Glee and singing at the top of my lungs with my windows down!! LOL!
I got home. Unpacked –> Packed (I HATE this part of my day if you can’t tell!) and then was actually excited to hop on my bike and go for a workout.
I think warm weather definitely makes evening exercise more enjoyable. Definitely.
I biked to the gym. Did a quick 20 minute round on the Stairmaster. Did 15 minutes of upper body weight lifting with 17.5 pounders. And biked back. Got the whole thing done in 60 minutes.
I rinsed off in a shower and then got to work assembling a no-cook dinner of Easter leftovers!
Risotto. Split pea soup. Cheddar Quackers. Salt + Pepper.
A wonderful combo of hearty flavors!
Love the new sea salt I bought! The coarse grind makes a huge difference over regular Morton’s Kosher.
After dinner MATT was ready to dig into the Chocomize samples I just got in the mail!! I couldn’t keep his paws off of them so we decided to have an early dessert.
The company sent me these samples based on my very favorite flavors in the world:
- Nuts (almonds + walnuts)
- Peanut Butter
- Dark Chocolate
Seriously, I couldn’t have made better combos myself!! (I gave them a list of my favorites and said “create away!”) Chocomize has a million different toppings for chocolate – almost as fun as oatmeal creations!!
We opened the Banana + Coconut + Date bar tonight
Matt ate more than his share and I had a nice end piece. This chocolate is GREAT! Dark + rich and chunks of awesome embedded throughout.
The con + pro are the same: you have to take a BIG bite to get to the good stuff!!
After dinner we had a conference call with Great Harvest about our location. Feeling optimistic!!
Then I chatted with my grandfather on the phone. Always fun to catch up.
Then I blogged.
Now I must go climb into bed!!
Ever seen a monkey made out of bread!? I’m thinking that our GH location can make bread BEARS!?
