Something has slipped my mind until last night. I have been a dietitian for 2 years, 3 days!
I thought about this during my half marathon a few weekends ago because I became a dietitian in Madison! I chose the city has the location to take my RD exam. The ladies that worked there were so sweet which is exactly what I needed at the time.
I had high hopes to complete side work yesterday, but that never happened since I picked up 2 inpatient floors. No big deal.
It did allow for me to kill 2 birds with one stone though. While seeing my patients I did meal rounds! Yes, it’s the end of the month and I’m doing the last of the necessary 20 “surveys.” It’s so much easier and quicker to do meal rounds while seeing the patient for initial assessments. You get in, you get out!
The 2 patients that I saw for diabetes outpatient were ideal patients. They were fun, open to hearing what we had to say, ready to make changes, etc. We are always open to patients who are the opposite; no one is thrilled to be having to learn how to control their blood sugar.
And then at 5:00 I realized that I still needed to prep for my cardiac rehab weight loss class! I literally slapped the palm of my head to my forehead when I remembered this. Lucky for me, I had a complete PowerPoint on today’s topic from past use! It was exactly what I needed, so I made copies and called it a day.
I announced my next step after work. Check it out if you missed it!
In typical beer-fest-approaching manner, I loaded up food and took it over to Aaron’s to make dinner. Mexican taco salad was on my agenda. It was a lot of prepping.
While prepping the store-bought tomatoes, I realized that there is an entire garden of tomatoes outside!
Perfect! They were the hit of the salad.
Aaron opened up my new beer purchase while I chopped away at vegetables.
Allagash Curieux! (Ugh, can’t get this picture to flip!!)
If you like beer at all, you must try this beer! It is described as a bourbon barrel aged tripel. The bourbon isn’t overwhelming to the point where you feel the burn in your throat which I greatly appreciated. So much flavor without being overwhelming. Shelf price was $17.99 and worth every penny.
In typical fashion, Aaron researched the beer. Apparently the beer came about when the brewery didn’t have the proper bottles so they used the Jim Beam bourbon barrels that were lying around.
Dinner was good except for the super chewy tortillas that had my jaw exhausted.
To top it off, I finally opened these little treats up.
Whoa! I wanted to snatch these up and disappear so I didn’t have to share with Aaron! I did share but ate more than half of them.
This morning I am resting since it’s on my training schedule to do so but also my yesterday’s workout had my inner thighs screaming.
I ran 5×400 which was a first. I ran 400 meters at 5K pace (varied between 8:00-8:46) and then slowed down for another 400 meters and then repeated. What a challenge!
