I finally got my internet working this morning. I also got some measuring cups and spoons when I went out shopping yesterday, so I guess that means I have no excuse not to track my food anymore. Of course, I've still lost a pound and a half just in the past few days ^_^ Probably because of all the walking I've been doing around campus and going shopping on the shuttle (which I've done three times now this week). Also, I kind of wonder if I have a tendency to eat less when I don't track!
Thursday night I went out on an "Experience Dallas" trip with the university. We went to the arts district and got to tour the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Crowe Collection of Asian Art. It was a lot of fun, and I can't wait for more opportunities to do these kinds of things with the school. Everything was free, and they even fed us on the bus. My only complaint is that the box dinner included not only a very large grilled chicken wrap with mayonaise but potato chips and a double portion of dessert! Against my better judgement, I ate the whole thing. But like I said, I've lost a pound and a half in the past few days (I'm finally in the 140's!) so I guess it really didn't matter what with all the exercise I've been getting.
I had an interview for a workstudy job as an events usher with the performing arts department yesterday. I really hope I get it! I also have interviews lined up all week for jobs in other departments, all office clerk positions. I would much rather be an usher, I think ^_^;; I've done the office assistant thing, you know...and along with the programming and computer imaging and digital photograpy classes I'm taking, if I have an office job too, I'd be spending almost all my time at a computer :P The usher position actually does include some office work, but I would also get to work performances, so I wouldn't be spending all my time in the office. And I might still get to sleep in some mornings, since the performances are in the evenings ^_^ I should know by the end of the day on Monday. Hopefully I'll get it and then I can just cancel all the other interviews!
