Day 3

16 May

After an exhausting Tuesday, I made sure to go straight to bed after dinner; call me a grandma, but I went to sleep at 9:15pm. I would have gone earlier but I got caught up in Guilianna and Bill :-P.

I slept in until 7:20am (does that even count as sleeping in?!) and felt a little more rested than I did yesterday; the storms throughout the night have me tossing and turning though. Once I establish a routine with my internship, my body will adapt (I’m hoping)!

2 scrambled eggs with cheese and spinach, a mini-pita pocket with humus, and a bowl of fresh fruit was on the menu for breakfast. The nutritionist mentioned changing up my breakfasts to incorporate healthy fats, whole grains, and protein to increase my energy and keep me satisfied- another change that I’m eager to make. I’ve also switched from lattes to regular coffee with skim milk and syrup; I like to have a cup with breakfast and a cup at work- it’s a big girl thing ;-).

On the agenda today: Employee Health and Fitness Day! A full day dedicated to employees making a conscious effort to stay fit at work by providing them with the tools, equipment, and ideas they need to be successful at it. Set-up for the event was last night; tables, chairs, and streamers-oh my! It was circus themed with lots of reds, blues, and yellows hanging from the ceiling of the gymnasium. A 5k kicked off the event; when the runners were done and heading back to the gymnasium, they stopped by the putting green where I was!  Participants had three tries to get the ball in the hole; not to toot my own horn but, toot toot I made them all-first try ;-).

Observing another fitness class tonight at 4:30pm- Step and Sculpt (sounds familiar NCSU Fitnasty🙂 ).

Because my internship is unpaid, I’m trying to find a part-time job I can handle on the side. It’s not ideal at the moment but it can’t help my shopping, grocery store, and having fun problems having a small income. I have an interview at a local gym; we’ll see!

Have a happy hump day!

P.S. I’VE BEEN ACCEPTED INTO OAKLAND UNIVERSITY! I haven’t mentioned it before, but I received a graduate assistantship for fitness and wellness back in March when I attended the NIRSA conference in Tampa, Florida. In order to accept the GA position, you must be accepted into the actual graduate school first (makes sense); I applied right after I came home and have been eagerly and nervously waiting since. I’m so grateful for this opportunity! I can’t thank God and everyone at NC State who has believed in me and pushed me to apply and interview for GA positions. I’m excited about the new opportunities, people, education, atmosphere- new EVERYTHING that’s coming my way in August.

Oakland University. Get ready-here I come!
