    Dietetic Internship Week 3: Entrepreneurship + Social Media

    My schedule has been so random and a rolling with the flow kind of time that for the past two weeks it hasn’t felt much like a traditional internship. Not that I really know what a “traditional” internship is or feels like??? But ya get the point. Coming out of my out patient rotation, I worked from home my last day and finished off my week by having a RA day. Then followed that up with a three day weekend (thanks Labor Day!), then worked from home on Tuesday, and followed up on Wednesday with another RA day. So basically it had been 8-ish days since I had actually been…

    Dietetic Internship Week 2: Private Practice Out Patient

    I hope everyone had a good holiday weekend! My weekend was jam packed full of things from celebrating our anniversary, to celebrating my maw-maw’s birthday, to a family holiday cookout, to the boring cleaning and homework stuff… BUT, guys! Another week of the dietetic internship is D O N E. Here’s my recap of week 2: Monday’s are always my class day. I had my dietetic internship class, where we all get together and talk about our rotations. A lot of people were on NEP which meant a lot of people were busy running copies, making lesson plan bags, and assisting our professors with odds and ends. There were some…

    What I Ate Wednesday #4

    If I’m being open and honest (which I always try my best to be with you guys), I’m still struggling in the mornings. I think it’s some combination of every day/week is different, my long commute, not being consistent with my bedtime, and failing to plan my mornings better. For the most part I’m handling my snacks, lunch, and dinner well throughout the day. Breakfast is just my downfall. I have some breakfast foods that I thought were quick and easy (toast with nut butter and frozen burritos), but taking the time to heat them just isn’t in the cards for me right now. Unfortunately I’ve been heavily relying on…

    Dietetic Internship Week 1: WIC

    I was super nervous for class on Monday. My first class, where we review our rotations, was canceled, because well, we haven’t had a full rotation yet. My second class is Advanced Medical Nutrition Therapy I (MNT). It was 2.5 hours and I haven’t had any MNT really in 2-ish years. I was crazy nervous that I would be so lost the first day of class. Glad to report class went great and I loved it! I’ll probably eat those words in like 2 months, but still. We eased into the material by discussing the Nutrition Care Process. My last class of the day was the research proposal class. We…

    What I Ate Wednesday #3

    This is an exciting WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) for me! This is my first time doing one as a dietetic intern. Before, I felt like my WIAW were all pretty similar because my schedule was pretty standard. Now my schedule is ever changing! I’m excited to share how my meals differ with my lifestyle change. Today was my week 1 of rotations and my second day back at the old WIC office. I’m still adjusting to the time and schedule changes aka we were rushing to get out the door this morning. I needed something that traveled well and I could manage eating while driving so I ended up…
