Road Tripping

Hellllllooooo there loves!  Happy Wednesday :)  Today was a little crazy for me, because I went on a mini-road trip.  In short, I drove to Indianapolis today to attend a presentation on the culture of healthcare for IU Health - which means I spent over 4 hours of today in the car.  I applied for a position at their children's hospital - I've always wanted to work in pediatrics eventually and earn the Certified Specialist in Pediatric Nutrition (CSP) certification for RD's.  I loved the atmosphere at the presentation and their stance on changing the face of healthcare.  I'm definitely feeling optimistic about all of the positions I've applied for... and I believe that the right thing will work out for me at the right time.  I just can't wait to see what that is!

I started today with another protein waffle - I am totally obsessed with my waffle iron and adding protein powder to the batter!  I'm a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast, so I can guarantee I'll be making waffles probably everyday for the next week.  This means lots of new waffle recipes for you to look forward to!  After that, I squeezed in a Core Fusion Pilates Plus workout, made a quick trip to Kroger and started getting ready for my big drive!  When I returned home, I was so hungry - so I re-heated soup from the freezer and made a big salad...and a mini chocolate cake :)  The perfect Wednesday, which could have included more fruits and veggies ::sigh:: but I'm a realist and I know it happens :)  Okay, okay, time for the glorious waffle recipe... and for WIAW!!!
