So… Anatomy and Physiology is going to be hard! We have a quiz on the first two chapters of the book already today and that’s basically an entire overview of everything in the body. Awesome.
At least the book (tries to) keep us entertained. Apparently a bunch of dudes back in the day did a theatrical demonstration of homeostasis (our body’s ability to regulate itself, e.g. temperature) for which they spent 45 minutes in a 260 degree F chamber with a dog and a beefsteak, lol. Basically, the beefsteak cooked (since it’s dead and can’t regulate it’s own temperature), while the men and the dog sweat/panted respectively, but were fine. The book then states: “History does not record whether the men ate the beefsteak in celebration or shared it with the dog.” LOL!
Aaaaanyway! In between studying, I did go to my favorite pilates class this morning and then had a tasty lunch involving one of my favorite beet salads :)
On the side was half a butternut squash topped with 2% cottage cheese and some pumpkin pie spice. Sounds weird, but it was good :)
I’m off to class, then heading to my grandmother’s for a late dinner, then picking up my mom at the airport! Must pack for Seattle at some point, too, since I have to work tomorrow before I leave… gah!
Have a great day :) It still feels like spring here in D.C. and I’m loving it!
