Tuesday night was horrible! I woke up just about every 2 hours with severe stomach pain. By the time I got up with my alarm I was exhausted and nauseas. I’m not sure what was up but I took it easy that day. Didn’t run. Took a nap midday. Laid low. At some semi-comforting food.
By night time I decided I needed some sort of workout so I did some strength training for 30 minutes and called it a day.
I also watched ANTM last night. Esther (the girl from Boston) got kicked off. I’m not sad about it LOL. My faves are Kayla and Jane. Do you watch ANTM?
Last night I only woke up once with a stomach pain and it wasn’t as bad. I was so tired, I still didn’t run. Somebody give me a swift kick to the butt. However, I’m feeling fine now!
I could eat oatmeal all day. Really.
In thesis class tonight we started going over how to write up our IRB proposal. For those that don’t know, the IRB is the Institutional Review Board. They have to approve your proposed research before you are allowed to begin it. It’s all about the safety and privacy of the study participants really. We have about a month before we have to submit our proposals! Eek! Then hopefully in January we start data collection :)
Now that I’m home dinner still isn’t made up in my mind. Raf’s mom already cleaned up the kitchen and I don’t want to dirty it up so I will have to grab something easy.
So you probably don’t remember but back in August I bought 3 of Michael Pollan’s books: The Botany of Desire, In Defense of Food, and The Omnivore’s Dilemma. The first one I started was The Botany of Desire.
BORING! I couldn’t even finish it. It’s just been sitting around since August. Any opinions of those who read it?
However I decided to proceed to the next one, In Defense of Food. It took me two months but I finally finished it.
This one was much better. I did get a little bit offended by some of the stuff he was saying about nutrition researchers but overall he gives some logical advice. If you haven’t heard it already: Eat food, not too much, mostly plants. Apparently this was brought to attention in the Omnivore’s Dilemma and I read them out of order. Oh well! So it’s not going to make me go out there and only eat food that is organic and from a farmer’s market but it does make you think about things. Anyway, it’s a book I would recommend for those foodies out there who haven’t read it yet. Again, any opinions from those who’ve read it?
I’m off to finish watching Grey’s now ;) Goodnight!
