I love going to sleep early! I was in such a funk last night, that I barely watched any lecture. I think I was asleep by 830 pm. That did not help with getting out of bed this morning, though. I id have time to enjoy a small bowl of Kashi Go Lean cereal topped with blueberries and flax milk.
I said yesterday how excited I was to start this clinical rotation. Boy, was I in for a rude awakening today. Thank God I was paired up today with my friend, Barbara, because I would have lost my mind! My patient was so complicated and required a lot of work. Its difficult because as a student, I do the job of both the tech and the nurse in the clinical setting. I am also limited on what I can do by myself, as a student. I felt very confident walking onto the unit this morning, but I felt like my instructor did not have a nice thing to say to me. Ugh!
Lunch break was much anticipated! I bought Chobani Flip Raspberry Choco Fix. I didn’t really read the label but, I figured it would raspberry yogurt with chocolate chips. Nope! I opened it looking puzzled at the appearance of the yogurt, then read the label. It was chocolate chip yogurt! Who ever heard of such a thing?! MMMMM! I flipped over the raspberry puree and sprinkled some chia seeds. I can’t wait to get this one again! (I also split a slice of pepperoni pizza with another team mate to make my stressed out self feel better.)
I needed to finish up some stuff on campus, so I met with Barbara on campus and we did our thing. As I came home, I had one thing on my mind: Dinner. I was not supper hungry, but I definitely knew what I wanted. I took out some tuna fish and mixed in some southwest black bean and corn salsa, garlic powder, and chili powder, and ate it tapas- style with Roasted Sweet Onion Brown Rice and Sweet Potato Triscuits, from their new Brown Rice line. I have also had the Roasted Red Pepper Brown Rice and Red Bean ones which taste like a fiesta in my mouth! On the side I peeled and roasted some carrots and sprinkled them with some cinnamon. Its like sweet potato fries minus the starchy carbs! Yum!
Dessert with assorted fruit and my favorite cottage cheese, accompanied with a study snack of Chocolate Fiber One 80. I do not typically like chocolate cereals, but this one is a keeps.
I’m in another funky mood tonight. I think being able to hit the gym tomorrow will turn things around.
Before I say good night, I want to share with you something I ate tonight. I’m not quite sure how I figured this one, but it your looking for a sweet treat, dip a low fat Cinnamon graham cracker in some fluf and then into ch-ch-ch-chia seeds! I loved the sweet crunch and the seedy chia!
