By the time most of you read this (I wrote it last night 🙂 ), I will be on my way home for Christmas break!!
I enjoyed (most) of this past semester, but I’ve got to be honest: I’m so glad it’s done. That does mean, though, that I only have one semester of classes left and one of student teaching, and then I’m out in the real world…….eep.
Anyway, on to another round of What I Ate Wednesday!
As it turns out, this week won’t be too full of fun foods. My camera is still broken, and I guess while I was at home, I didn’t deem too many things suitable enough to take pictures of! Oops. But, here’s what I did have…
Two delicious versions of Irish soda bread:
Tuna “salad”. We didn’t have any peas, otherwise I would have thrown those in there too – this is just tuna, Greek yogurt, and Craisins all mixed up.
Chicken and apple salad, with balsamic vinegar on top.
Cheese and apple salad, with balsamic vinegar on top and a tilapia filet on the side.
Sunday roast beef with potatoes and carrots – and some Irish soda bread!
A Starbucks double chocolate chip frappuccino light. (<– What a name.)
And finally, some frozen yogurt.
Yes, that is a recycled image. But there’s a reason (other than the fact that I don’t have a camera): I Googled frozen yogurt to try and find a generic picture of some to post, and one of my own pictures popped up! I thought that was pretty nifty, so I decided to use it again. 🙂
Workouts December 9-15

Saturday: circuit training? jogging? elliptical??
In other news, I got my food allergies retested this past week. I’d been wanting to do this for a while, but I had to get my EOE checked out first and they couldn’t schedule me til December blah blah blah…You know how it goes with appointments. 😉 On Monday I went into the office and got some patch testing done. If you’re not familiar with it, patch testing is where they literally patch bits of foods onto the skin on your back, wait 48 hours, take the patches off, and assess the reaction. (That’s why you see no exercises for Monday and Tuesday…I can’t sweat or shower, which has not been fun. I’ve done sponge baths but let’s just say I really used to take showers for granted! 🙂 )
The previous times I had gotten my allergies tested, I had gotten the skin prick method, which is where they purify foods into drops and prick the surface of the skin, let a few drops in, and then assess the reaction. I guess patch testing is a somewhat new thing, so I’m interested to see what the results are…
…Well, interested and nervous. They did a safety patch test on my forearm before the one on my back, and I did not react very well to rye (in fact, she didn’t even put that one on my back, the reaction was so bad), corn, rice, and worst of all, wheat.
But, we shall see. I’m trying not to get too worked up about a possible wheat allergy. I go in for the results tomorrow – wish me luck!
I have some fun posts coming up within the next couple of days. I’m slightly behind on my Study Abroad 2011 recaps (if you are, too, please check out my posts on Paris: here and here!), and as 12/17/11 was my last day there, I’d better get going with the posts! It’s just that I’ve been so busy with finals week that I haven’t had time to do too much.
Anyway, that’s all I have for now – have a great day!
