It's official. I am FINISHED with my food service rotation! 11 weeks and 372 hours...DONE DONE DONE! 9 quizzes and a final are behind me and I proud to say that I successfully passed this rotation. I can't believe I have finished 2 rotations in my 10-month, 1200 hr dietetic internship. May 1st is going to be here before I know it and I will be scared out of my mind, ready to start studying for the National Registered Dietitian Exam. This rotation was a great learning experience. I feel very confident as a food service manager and I have a new respect for food service in general. I don't see food service management/dietary manager as a career choice but I feel this was a great hands-on opportunity. So now that I am a little over half way finished with my dietetic internship, I am so excited for my last rotation. After my week break to finish up my binder, I start CLINICALS! I am still tossing around career ideas and keeping my eyes set on some type of wellness-dietetic clini

Thanksgiving eats

Shopping and Food..and for my fitness enthusiasts-a few days of stress-free exercise! Lots to look forward to with the approaching Thanksgiving holiday. If your body is healthy, recovering from injury/illness/disease or if you are overcoming obstacles in your life, I am sure you have plenty to be thankful for. Remind yourself that on this holiday, food should make you feel should the people who you choose to share this holiday with.

In no particular order.... - DO eat breakfast. Rather than going for the daily bowl of oatmeal, cereal, toast or bagel, think protein. Egg white omelet, whey protein shake, yogurt, cottage cheese or lean/veggie meat. Although turkey at your t-day dinner is high in protein, there i

It's that week

“In times of great stress or adversity, it's always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.” It's that last week of interning for my food service rotation! I've waited 11 LONG weeks for this and it is finally here. I thought I would be finished with my 353 hours of Food Service interning on wed but it looks like I will be 6 hours short. That's ok, I will intern on Fri this week (taking off on Thanksgiving) and next week will be a welcomed "off" week from interning. Wow, in less than 2 weeks I start my very LAST rotation for my dietetic internship and perhaps, my most intensive rotation....CLINICALS!! Alongside interning this week, I am squeezing in every minute I can to study for my final (which I have to take by Wed 11pm). Once I take my final, I will finish my binder (which includes 42 completed learning outcomes aka. papers, projects, reports, graphs, outlines, etc.) and send it off to my distance dietetic i
