I got an A!

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Thank you to everyone that has listened to (or rather, read) my whining about the class I am taking and how poorly I have been doing. It was for good reason. On our two tests (there have only been two) I got a 55% and a 68%. Yeah, that is not good, nor is that typical of my testing. For the final the teacher suggested looking over our previous tests. I did that. I looked at the questions, looked up what I got wrong and why, what the terms were that I didn't understand, I really learned some of this stuff. I ended up with a 95% on the final. That brought my 86% to a 90.5%. Woo!

And how did this affect my day? I was stressed. I got a little bit of grading done. I studied. I helped with an hour and 15 minute presentation, then I studied. I had a piece of thin crust veggie pizza (the class got it just for me). I studied. I had a hershey chocolate bar. I studied. I had to sit in on an interview. I studied. I studied and I reviewed and then I had to be done.

After the final we discussed a few answers that we didn't agree with. She corrected a few things, had grades entered and we could go. I came home and finally had dinner. I couldn't eat earlier as I was so stressed I felt like I wanted to puke. I considered stopping for something at the grocery store "because I didn't have any meat for protein". I finally decided to have a protein shake and my veggies and skipped the grocery store (YAY, I didn't buy junk!). I reheated my veggies and logged my food. I still had some calories to play with, even with the pizza and the chocolate bar. Not the most nutritious, but still made it work in my calories. I was even able to have a glass of wine again tonight. Since drinking wine was part of the doctors orders, I got a box of wine. It lasts longer and is cheaper than the equivalent 3 bottles. I got a brand that does also make bottles. Good stuff.

Anyway, tomorrow I am going in a bit late so I can take hubby to get a rental car while his gets fixed. This means I can head to bed now and still get up to do a training day for my 5K. YAY!

OH, I also got complimented today that I was "looking very skinny minnie." I think it is just because the sweater is a bit too big for me, but it is my favorite purple color and I am not quite ready to part with it, and I need all the warmer clothes I can get this winter. It is supposed to be COLD again tonight. Hoping for a warm up, just in time to get more snow. Yippie skippy! Remind me why I like MN...please.

    Congrats on the A, but even more, congrats on being DONE with that class! I know you've got to be celebrating that! When I get super stressed and anxious, my appetite bottoms out completely, so sometimes it's all I can do just to make decent choices and actually make myself eat. I'm glad you were able to do the same!

    Great job on the A! It's tough to stress over grades...but I totally get it.
    You want to preserve something you are proud of, which you should be!
    Good deal & I'm sure you deserved it with all the extra work and studying you've been putting into it!
    Great job!!
