Morning! It is a great morning, too. I am now a proud aunt of an adorable niece!
I received a text while at work announcing the name and birth weight of my brother’s daughter. It’s amazing how quickly you love someone despite yet meeting them! I am getting pumped for this California vacation in less than 2 weeks when I finally get to meet Ms Emily!
I had a great show-rate of patients. I love a steady stream of work. I stuck to diabetes and weight gain. Yep, don’t forget that there are people who are underweight and the greater concern often for underweight rather than obesity.
The fun time of the year has come-
Time to enroll in benefits. I am getting the hang of this finally. I have a rough estimate of what health care I typically use. Now as soon as I cut back on one thing, I am sure that something will happen to me (knock on wood). The awesome thing about this year is that we have a wellness screening initiative and discount. If we do a screening that includes blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure check, we get a set amount knocked off our insurance deduction from our paychecks. How awesome is that? I will be sticking to oats and not attend any bacon fest event in the near future!
It appears that other employees that have elevator blood sugar and cholesterol will be encouraged (and maybe further incentive) to see us, the dietitians. Win-win!
I probably came back too early, but I went on a run after leaving work. My parents had brought me new athletic socks this past weekend.
Biggest detail is no toe line!
They felt fine. My feet were warm only since the Midwest has had a sudden heat wave.
Heat wave but the sun is still disappearing far too early.
I ran a 35 minute tempo run. Bad type of run to choose for turning around after my race this weekend.
Running stats 3.92 miles 35:23 9’01″
I tried ending my run the way it ended accidentally during my race. I have no clue what I did that caused the workout to pause and then stop. This experimented quickly pushed my pace about 9 minutes-dang it!
Dinner was taken over to Aaron’s place. He was having a late night “bottle share” with friends, so I figured it’d be easiest for me to go over there. I brought ingredients for a frittata, roasted sweet potato, and roasted broccoli. At 7 in the darkness, I went out to the garden and snipped thyme. I couldn’t see what was dead or alive.
There was a little problem with the potatoes sticking to the pan, but the frittata turned out really good. It was simple but flavorful. This was one of the most filling meals that I’ve made in a long time. I couldn’t finish my last bite of broccoli. Dietitian fail!
I spent the entire evening waiting for more and more pictures of my niece. She was too busy spending the first day of life cheering for the Giants.
