I feel really good and anxious about this quarter as I started my practicum. I'm nervous but not too nervous as I do have some experience in this field. I just really feel I've lost a lot of brain cells while I've been off work these last few years but I will fake it til I make it, or just keep faking it really good.
My Tuesday night class is looking to be a royal pain in the rear (ok ok just because there is a presentation). So I will be working at my practicum site from 8-4:30 every Tuesday then trekking over to UWT for class from 6:30-9. I like that I have a bit of a gap in between to force me to do some reading.
I've been keeping (loosely) a food journal which has morphed into a ranting unloading journal of everyday stresses and what not. Its quite cathartic. As of the other day I was down to 128lbs (15 more to go). But I made spaghetti for the kiddos last night and consumed at least 3 lbs of carbs plus we made homemade vegan banana muffins.
No sugar added stab at yummy muffins:
-2 ripe bananas blended with canned coconut milk
-Whole wheat pastry flour
Yup that was it and now that I look at it, I realize I forgot the Apple Cider Vinegar DOH! I baked them up with vegan dark choc chips in the center. It really wasn't a sweet muffin but the kids DEVOURED THEM. Ollie had a great idea and he slathered on some PB and it was a meal. They had it this morning for breakfast along with a spirulina smoothie. Gosh I love my kiddos.
My next blog entry will be more about my eats. I'd like to end with this fabulous quotes that was on one of the article's I have to read for Tuesday nights class:
" We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time."
