Today was kind of a bummer day, not nutritionally, but personally. College DD is in a program studying to be an x-ray tech. It is very hard to get into this program and they only accept 40 students per semester. The program is set up where they go through the entire 3 year program with the same 40 kids. Anyway, she had a really hard time in one of her classes last semester (which she passed by the skin of her teeth) and then struggled in the 2nd semester of the same class again this semester. This time she was not so lucky. She missed by 2 points so she will have to repeat the class in the summer. She is not allowed to continue on with any more of the classes in the program until she passes this one, so that will put her graduating with the next class. I know in the big scheme of things this is not that big of a deal, but it sure did rock her little world. I guess sometimes we just have to learn things the hard way. She can at least continue taking some elective courses and get those out of the way. Thanks for listening to me vent. I feel better now (a little).
The rest of the day was busy and good. I wogged with our neighbor kid and we actually did our first mile in 14 minutes! Woohoo! He was so cute! He was acting like my coach and kept telling me to push harder! We saw an elderly lady in her front yard trying to cut get some poison oak out of one of her bushes and he stopped to help her and visit with her for a minute. Such a thoughtful young man!
Foodwise, I did pretty well, except I made the mistake of eating one candy kiss which soon turned in to 6!!! That's 132 calories! I could have had a cup of my favorite 5 ingredient soup topped with cheddar cheese for 142 calories and it would have been filling! Instead, I'm sitting here hungry because I used all my calories up on kisses! Talk about a bad choice! Like my daughter, sometimes I have to learn things the hard way! I betcha I don't make the same mistake tomorrow!
Well, thanks friends, for letting me vent and rant and confess or whatever else you want to call this mess of a blog tonight! Because of you I am getting stronger, healthier, and smarter everyday!
