27th-Feb-2013 08:35 pm - Leaving on a jet plane....
Starbuck
It seems that the closer I get to holiday the more likely I am to forget to post. At any rate things have been pretty quiet lately, had another snow day yesterday and didn't do diddly squat with my day. I did go to the dojo and get a workout in before I leave. Today I spent the whole day at practicum, with the exception of my 8 am psychopharm hurt my brain class. Went to Buffalo Wild Wings for a fundraiser for my student social work group and had a very healthy salad and mango lemonade (nummy!). Don't know if I will be able to regularly post once I am at ECCC, depends on how gosh darn tired and pooped I am at the end of the day. Since I am not really sure what the heck I am going to be doing at the con, I have no idea how busy I will be or anything. We shall see.
25th-Feb-2013 08:18 pm - Yesterday and today
Starbuck
And tomorrow it looks like snow!! At least not as much as last time but still forecasted to get anywhere between 4 and 6 inches. Oh joy. Work was cancelled for today (sucky, I need the money) but good potential news on the new roommate front. Had a girl come look at the place today and have a gentleman coming over tomorrow to check it out so fingers crossed! Yesterday diet wise I didn't eat much, just wasn't feeling hungry, probably from not doing much. I ate some more chicken noodle soup with saltines for dinner and baby carrots and apple slices for lunch along with a handful of pretzels. Duplicate that for lunch today between classes along with a bag of fritos and a poptart for breakfast. I had a Lean cuisine cheese pizza for dinner and some sherbert for dessert. Here's hoping we don't get much snow.

Starbuck
Myself and my fellow Kansans have spent the past few days digging ourselves out of a foot of snow and now Monday, there is more snow coming. Good times. Forgot to post yesterday, back was killing me from shoveling on Thursday and it's only slightly better today. Ate a spinach salad yesterday and had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch. Screwed my diet today by eating Arbys. I really wanted fast food and was frustrated over not being able to work on my critique for research, my brain felt like it was working through sludge and I just could not think straight, everything I wrote seemed ill formed and worthy of an F grade. Ugh. I hate when I can't think. At any rate I might have more time than I think to work on my assignment, with more snow coming I might not have school on Monday, LOL!

Woke up this morning at 6 am. It was snowing, but not much. Checked the net, schools closed so I didn't have to go in for training. Went back to bed (still sick) and got up at 10. There was about 9 inches of snow outside! I have never seen that much snow outside of a mountain before. Definitely the most snow I have seen at one time since moving to Kansas. I went out and shoveled for about an hour at noon. It sucked but had to be done. I then came in and ate some chicken noodle soup. For dinner I had tomato soup, apples and carrots. Had more ice cream for dessert. Looked outside and it started snowing again. So will have to go out and shovel again a bit before I go anymore tomorrow (if I bother, training is cancelled again so I have no where that I have to go and can actually relax and get better. Will hopefully happen soon, I am sick of being sick!

Still sick. Lost my voice now. Made it to my 8 am psychopharmacology class and even went to practicum for about an hour. Was talked into going home by my field supervisor who didn't want me spreading my plague around the office. Had a turkey sandwich for lunch, my requisite one Mountain Dew and spent the rest of the afternoon sacked out on the couch. Got up and ate tomato soup, salad and some more ice cream for dinner. So kept pretty close to my diet today. Helps that I don't have much of an appetite and I get full really quickly.

Went to the grocery store, it was crazy, jam packed with folks getting ready for Snowpacolypse 2013. Winter Storm Q better snow as much as everyone says, my training will be cancelled if schools are closed. They already have closed all the schools except for the ones in the metro area. Hopefully they will announce that they are closed before I head to bed tonight, I don't want to have to break up my beauty sleep just to drag myself out of bed long enough to see if schools at closed tomorrow. *fingers crossed*

Starbuck
Didn't go to practicum today, my cold made it very difficult to breathe/talk this morning. So I stayed home until I had to drive to Council Grove for work. Fun times. Food today was pretty small, didn't really have an appetite. I didn't have breakfast, I ate some carrots and apples for lunch and chicken noodle soup. For dinner I had a Lean Cuisine dinner it was chicken and rice in a red lime chili sauce. Had some more ice cream for dessert, still have a bit of a sore throat, but not as bad as yesterday. Here's hoping Winter Storm Q shuts down the schools in KCK so I don't have to go to training on Thursday!
18th-Feb-2013 08:58 pm - Diet Day 6...still sick
Starbuck
Blegh. I hate being sick. Sore throat, cough and expelling phlegm with every couple of coughs was not how I viewed my week as going. Any rate, today the diet only had one hiccup. I didn't eat breakfast, I nursed a cup of tea while I suffered through my 8 am qualitative research class. I decided to skip my afternoon class after seeing my afternoon professor in the hall and she point blank told me to go home and feel better and not infect my fellow classmates. I am sure they appreciate that. I had some carrots and apples for a lunch/snack and for dinner chicken noodle soup and for dessert I had rainbow sherbet. Felt so good on my sore throat though I know it's not in my diet. Hoping I feel better tomorrow as I have a full day of practicum and then have to head out to Council Grove (an hour away) for work as one of my kids that I work with has a wrestling meet.

Winter Storm Q is apparently passing through here Wednesday night. Right in time for me to have to drive to Kansas City, an hour away, for training that I need in order to be paid more at my job. And I do not have time to miss the day of training and go back and make it up later. And I need to be paid more in order to like live. Ugh. I hate driving in ice. Pray for me.
17th-Feb-2013 07:26 pm - Diet day 5
Starbuck
Ugh. Woke up this morning with a sore throat, cough and producing green colored sputum. Yay. So the diet today has been pretty easy, I haven't felt like eating much of anything. I had strawberry pop tarts this morning for breakfast, nursed a Mountain Dew throughout most of the day and ate celery with peanut butter and apple slices and water for dinner. I also snacked on some chex mix and ate a granola bar. Hopefully I will better tomorrow, I can't afford to be sick, miss any work, school, training or practicum.
16th-Feb-2013 08:52 pm - Diet day 3 and 4
Starbuck
Got home late last night from work and was exhausted so I didn't post. Today's entry is on yesterday and today.

Yesterday was a bust food wise. It started out good, I hate a muffin called Morning Glory that had carrots, raisins and apples in it along with a bottle of water for breakfast. Lunch was the same as Thursday, Einstein Brothers whole wheat bagel with turkey, lettuce, tomato, spicy mustard and mayonnaise along with a small cup of potato salad and a medium Mr. Pibb. Dinner was a bust though and ruined the whole day as the family I work with went to Pizza Hut for dinner. I had a small salad with Italian dressing and two slices of cheese pizza with a Mountain Dew. The extra soda was needed to have enough energy to work with my kids at the YMCA and go swimming 10.

Today was much better. Got up and sweated my way through a morning workout at the dojo. Came home and ate a light lunch of apple slices, celery with peanut butter and water. Dinner was a spinach salad with tomatoes, feta cheese and balsamic vinagerette dressing. I went grocery shopping and successfully resisted the urge to buy my soda. I had one Mountain Dew today which is remarkable considering how much homework I had to do and that I am still very tired from my long day. Tomorrow is Sunday and I still have a little bit of homework and some housework to do but hopefully will get in some relaxation time.
14th-Feb-2013 09:23 pm - Diet Day 2
Starbuck
Due to having to be an hours drive away at a god awful early time this morning and knowing I would have a 2 and 1/2 hour drive after I got done with training at 4 in the afternoon followed by a late evening working meant I did not get up and run this morning and won't get up and run tomorrow either. I swear I will Saturday...maybe. *sigh*

Diet going okay. Today I hate 1 Krispy Kreme doughnut because the trainers bought doughnuts for V-day (which I LOATHE) but I washed it down with a bottle of water so sorta healthy. For lunch I went to Einsteins Brothers and had a turkey sandwich on a whole wheat bagel with lettuce, tomato, spicy mustard and mayonnaise with a small cup of potato salad and a Mr. Pibb. For dinner I had to eat on the run so I really didn't have dinner. I ate a snack of carrots, sliced apples, a cheese slice and unsalted almonds washed down with a Mountain Dew (I needed the caffeine to stay awake till I got home). I was gone from 7 am till 8:30 pm. LONG DAY. Tomorrow will be another long day, training from 830 to 400 pm and then work from 5 to about 10 I wager. Ugh. I can't wait for the weekend.
