Good morning and Happy Halloween!
Any of you guys dressing up for work or school today? I’m not, but I’m hoping to see some fun costumes around campus.
I started my Halloween on campus bright and early at the pool with my friend Jill!
We both swam for about 35 minutes and then water jogged and chatted for the last 10 minutes. It was COLD outside this morning — there was a layer of ice on my windshield! But luckily it was nice and warm in the pool building. I <3 swimming — such nice cross training. I’ve been going just about every Monday this fall. Good times!
I have biochem class this morning followed by some review sessions for our second exam on Wednesday. I’m determined not to bomb this one! I’ve been studying once per week, every week, with a classmate to keep up with the material and it’s really helped both of us to feel more confident, so here’s hoping.
I just threw together a quick packed lunch for the road:
A container of leftover homemade minestrone soup:
I put it in my screw top Attune Foods container since it’s the best sealing container I have — here’s hoping it won’t leak all over me!
Plus a kiwi for some juicy fruit power (yes, I eat it like an apple with the skin on — try it!):
And a Chobani black cherry yogurt for a little more protein.
I will leave you with some fun Halloween-y neighborhood photos. I love all the fun decorations everyone has up this year!
A light in the window below is set up to flash at night so you can see the skeleton — so creepy!!
This guy looks ready for revenge:
I love Halloween — I’m hoping to get some cute trick or treat-ers tonight! I’m all stocked up on candy and ready to rock. Yes, even as a future RD I still bought candy to give out. I mean, it’s once per year. And if you give out raisins or something lame they will get thrown away, let’s be honest.
What do you guys think — should people going into or already in health professions still give out candy on Halloween? I think it’s important to give kids a balance — meaning, don’t keep candy in the house normally, but for something like Halloween — let them live a little.
