Yesterday I stood in front of some really smart people and attempted to teach them something they didn’t know.
I have been nervous about this lecture for about a month, and I have no idea why. When I got up there I actually enjoyed myself and the discussions we were having. I was even happy when someone asked me a question I couldn’t answer. To me, that showed true genuine interest.
Although I enjoyed myself, it still feels great to have that weight lifted off my shoulders. Whew.
Yesterday before the lecture I ate my breakfast to go.
Afterwards, the course coordinator and my old professor from my fellowship, took me out to lunch at The Carolina Inn.
This place is fancy schmancy. Dan and I stayed there the first time we visited North Carolina when I interviewed for the fellowship and every time I return I can still feel the anxiety and hopefullness from that weekend.
The food was wonderful. I ordered fish tacos.
After lunch I headed back to Meredith’s where I worked and ran a 3 mile out and back on the hilly country roads.
After a quick shower I met Noelia for tea and then headed to Mez to meet up with some of the other past and current fellows for dinner.
Meredith, the girl I am staying with, is on the left. Dr. Tran, my favorite Asian thug, is on the right.
See ya tomorrow in Asheville!
Thought for the day:
Daily Points (30) + Activity Points (6) – Eating Points (37) = -1
Weekly Points (49) – Mon (4) –Tues (4) –Wed (1)= 40
Whole wheat when possible;
100 oz of water; Multivitamin; 2 servings of dairy ;5 servings of fruits and veggies; 2 tsps of oil; limit sugar and alcohol; lean protein. I was in such a celebratory mood yesterday that I didn’t even track any of this. Shame. Today will be better.
