First I want to say “HI!” to some of my new readers! Second, the whole homemade facial thing definitely doesn’t compare to one at a spa but it’s still nice :)
And as for the whole dietetic internship application process? It’s coming to a close. Applications are due February 15th so that’s mega-stressful. I’m hoping to stay at Simmons but am applying to a few other schools as well – all community focused.
Hope that wraps up some questions ya’ll may have had!
So after a pretty indulgent weekend…………
Oh and there was definitely some Oreo ice cream cake, Chinese food, and pizza. Yeah INDULGENT! What can I say, it was an extended birthday celebration for the boy :)
I compensated with some delicious oats with a diced pear and walnuts and a not so exciting rushed bowl of “mighty tasty hot cereal” with coffee and OJ.
I’ve really got to start taking pictures of things other than breakfast haha.
In other news, I OFFICIALLY started P90X yesterday. The other times I was just randomly throwing in one of those workouts but I decided to actually start the program this time. It’s just far to cold out to go running. I mean hello it was like 7 degrees out today! Yeah my abs totally hurt right now, but it’s a good hurt ;)
I also wanted to bring to attention the topic of a recent article in Today’s Dietitian. The article “When Thin is Fat” discusses a condition called Normal Weight Obesity (NWO). Basically it means that a person may be at a normal weight, and therefore may appear to have a normal BMI but in reality they have increased body fat percentage causing weight-related health issues. People with NWO typically have decreased muscle mass and decreased bone density and elderly are at an increased risk for this condition. So if your BMI is at the higher end of normal, you may want to get your body fat percentage checked to rule out NWO. Try bioelectric impedance or the Bod Pod which may be available at major hospitals.
Feel free to share some opinions!
