On to the menu!
Breakfast was banana pancakes. The formula recipe yields 1 block protein, 2 blocks carbs, and some amount of fat, I don't know. My head exploded trying to calculate it. Today I added an extra egg to the recipe to make it 2 blocks of each. The result was a firmer pancake that was easier to flip, more uniform in shape and golden-brown-ness, and a larger portion (duh). They didn't taste any more "eggy" than before, so I'll make them this way from now on. I added bacon and a little maple to round out to 3 blocks.
It made 6 pancakes. This was a big breakfast!
Lunch was a chicken salad and fruit from the cafeteria. I can't get my shit together when I work days to make a lunch. I should do it the night before, but I don't wanna, so I don't. When I switch to overnights this won't be an issue. Also I forgot to photograph it. It was pretty standard.
I fail on the snacks, because I didn't eat one this afternoon even though I should have. I wasn't hungry until about 4pm, so my lunch was balanced, but I didn't eat a snack so by the time I got home at 5:45 I was ravenous. It was broccoli beef night. One of my favorites.
It's hard to balance a mixture. I'm estimating this to be 3-4 oz of beef (so 3-4 blocks) and about 1 block of broccoli. It was delicious. Afterwards I ate a couple of dates to make it a 3 block meal.
Later I'll have a venison stick, a couple of prunes, and a couple of macadamia nuts for a 2 block snack. That'll be an 11 block day.
Exciting, right? I told you to skip it :)
Today I spent a little time with the floor pharmacist learning what they do all day so I know how to hand off appropriately and document the things they need to see during the day. It was very instructive. I also did 5 competencies which was mind-numbing. Ah well, once they're done I'm all caught up and ready to finish my training. I can't wait to be a real pharmacist again.
I have to pack a bag for the gym/shower/workday tonight so I can get my workout in tomorrow. Had to pass up the opportunity to run with a friend because I'm on days this week. That will never be an issue again in just about a month. Woo!
