Just a quick post before I head to spin (and I promise to get you a playlist when I can sit down for long enough to youtube the songs!) tonight.
The week is off to a fast start! Where’d today go? I was up uber early and I tried to get lots done. Success on some fronts, like getting my digital camera going, work at the Gazette, and a trip to the physio. I had a little breakdown over the stress of this week and over Fashion Writing. I think I might drop the course and take the WDN on my transcript. I called the registrar and asked if it affects getting into grad school — they said NO as long as you still have your degree. I’m meeting with my academic counsellor on Wednesday morning. I guess I’ll sleep on it for a day or two but a major thing is that I think I’ll become a part time student if I do and I won’t have all the same benefits (dietitian? health care?) if I do. Hmmph. I am thinking I’ll keep my other “challenging” writing class because I actually LIKE it and one low-ish mark won’t kill me if it’s averaged out with some other higher ones! I aced my first assignment in Sports Sociology 🙂 so I feel good about where that course could go. Yay for essay courses in things I find interesting…
On the eating front, I kept today to a meatless Monday! I feel good about my choices. My unphotographed breakfast was greek yogurt with an apple, muesli, and maple syrup. My morning snack was my almonds and a banana that I got at school. I need one those banana carriers so I don’t ruin my nanners but could still pack em! To be honest, 61 cents on a piece of fruit isn’t so bad…My lunch was a leftover black bean burger with zucchini, onion, and romaine and tzatziki in most of a whole wheat pita. Yum. Afternoon snack was a LARA bar because I was not interested in the berries or the carrots I brought. When I got home I immediately made a cheese sandwich with some cherry tomatoes on the side. Pumpernickel bread was new and yummy for me and I can’t wait to have it as toast later this week. Yay for eating new things and for keeping it fresher than I have been.
On the agenda tomorrow is a swim, a staff meeting at the gym, and replacing my phone! I’m also going to try to pick up a trainer, miss as little time as possible at the Gazette, and I teach bootcamp. There’s still a bunch of homework and writing on my to do list, including an assignment that requires me to watch a sports film and “read” it in a sociological context. I’m thinking of using “Stick It” or maybe “Blue Crush” but I do own the Rocky box set if it comes down to it! Tearing apart my fav movies for promoting gender or class ideologies or whatever is going to be hard! NTM I am really bad at watching movies! Anyone care to join me for some analysis, perhaps with a simultaneous epic foam rolling session!?
Now it’s time for me to get going on things! My laundry is going in the machine when I leave (I am committing) and I’m going to spin a bit before the class and do my physio exercises after. Swim is early tomorrow so I’m gonna hit the hay ASAP when I get home!
Do you like Rocky? What’s your fav sports movie?
How was your Monday?
Have you ever dropped a course and taken a WDN? (This won’t be my first one)
