My Progress

Cram it in there!

Today is a crazy day. I've already done a day's worth of work in the lab and it's only 1.30 in the afternoon. I also dropped by my school this morning and purchased tickets for a baseball game later this month. Today was the last day they were being offered to students at a reduced rate and my girlfriend, a friend and his wife were all for it, so I picked up 4 tickets. I'm looking forward to it. It's Friday, the 24th (aka the day before my next WI) and its on buck night, so I'll be contending with $1 hot dogs, peanuts and mini pretzels too. Wish me luck!

While I was on campus I also dropped by financial aid and the registrar to square myself away for another semester of fun at ye olde KUMed Center. Exciting!

My program director dropped by today for a project update and performance evaluation. I was pleased to hear how well my supervisor here feels I've been doing and how much I've "evolved" since January. I feel really strong about my experience and project here and I'm absolutely thrilled to hear my mentors agree. I was given a couple of suggestions on areas I can improve my performance as an intern and I gave some feedback on hers as a supervisor (this is her first time in a supervisory role).

I have to get done on time today, no joke. I need to get in my workout from 1630 to 1730, then I have to book it to a WW meeting 45 minutes away that starts at 1830. Then I need to hit the library and get some research goin on my grant, come home and have dinner, get some more work done on the grant, hit the sack and rest well because tomorrow I meet with my program director again to discuss my grant, then I'm coming into the lab (although I'm not scheduled to do Fridays) so that I can get my bugs growing, head back home in the afternoon, pack up the car and hit the road for a full weekend of Easter family time. That said, I may not be checking in with yall before Sunday, but we shall see. Cool? Wish me luck!

Oh man, It's ruff for me to turn down a good hot dog and eating just one seems wrong.

Actually if you go for the big pretzels, brush off the salt and put mustard on them and they might be the best option?

Maybe guilt free would mean for me I'd have to do an hour on the treadmill for three days *before* the game. If I said after, well I'd just come up with excuses.

Making excuses is the foolsfitness way! -Alan

That's what she said---sorry, couldn't resist.

Thanks for your comment today. It makes me feel better knowing that others can make it through weekends that don't fit our regular routines and still stay on plan.

Have a happy and healthy Easter weekend! :)
