It's Friday Eve! I have to say, this week went by really quickly for me, but I am definitely ready for the weekend, too :) I don't think we have any real plans, either, so I am looking forward to some fun and relaxing!

Funny story, I had my buffalo chicken last night for dinner and when I was done, there was a lot of Franks Hot Sauce at the bottom of the bowl. My (fat) cat came to lick the bowl, and he licked it for a solid two minutes! This is the 2nd time this cat has eaten something ridiculously spicy. Can you imagine???

Accountability: Perfect until I thoughtlessly grabbed a handful of cheezits in a late afternoon meeting.

QOTD: Do you have a really nice view of something every day? I have a few! When I drive in on the highway, there is a point when I am close to Boston and catch a glimpse of a pretty harbor with still water, and the city in the background (bonus points because I often see it right at sunrise!) And my new office is about 1.5 miles from downtown Boston, and my 4th floor office has a nice view of the skyline. I will try to remember to grab a picture today!


Exercise: Guess what? I don't feel like death! I am going to the gym after work for sure and will literally run until I fall down!

I am so ready for the weekend!! Just two more days, yay!

qotd - I have a very pretty view of the mountains from my office and I think my area is beautiful in general so I'm lucky that way!

accountability - I was so hungry all day yesterday - I ate all the cheese and yogurt before going to lunch. It was a day I was very happy I don't have crackers, cookies or whatever in the house because I would have eaten all of them!

i am planning more food today than usual because of that.

b - carbmaster cottage cheese

l - 4 oz ever roast chicken, 1 oz mozzarella

d - 4 oz ever roast chicken, 1 oz mozzarella

Also have .7 oz ever roast, 2 oz mozzarella and a power crunch bar in my bag o' food for the office plus I'll have my 3 coffees with half and half

i have a cardio Pilates class tonight follows by a center and balance (stretching class). Yesterday I did an easy level 1 class with only 3 people...so she increased the difficulty to challenge the newbies -- so my "active recovery day" was more like just active but she did a lot focused on the hips at my request and my IT band and Piriformis are much happier today. Winning!!

have a terrific Thursday all!

Good morning, everybody!

I am going to a Gala tonight for Lyme Disease research, so I am working from home today. I guess I need to primp. Actually it wouldn't make sense to go into the city, come home and get ready and pick up Marilyn , and then go back into the city to attend the event. I'm in the mood to get something at the auction, so hopefully they have something cool.

One of the themes the Gala is Gluten-Free Dairy-Free cooking by restaurant chefs, so finding on-plan foods should be pretty easy.

This is off topic, but for the teachers/school administrators or college aged parents, is it standard to waive the right to review teacher recommendations? I did some research and it looks like all that you are waiving is the right to look at them after enrollment. I don't know what my daughter did or even if this is new.

QOTD: My office overlooks Millennium Park, Grant Park, Soldier Field and the South Lakeshore. Which reminds me that I was supposed to post a picture for Photo Friday

Breakfast: Turkey meatballs and cottage cheese

Snack: Protein bar

Lunch: Chicken

Snack: Jerky

Dinner: Gala

Have a great day all!

Jim, what's the question about teacher review? I'm not sure I understood it. I'm a helicopter mom so always checking on everything. But what is this waving of rights? Sorry, I know I'm no help but just asking more questions ...in other words trying to understand to prevent my DD to do it!

Hi Sheila - I hope that your injury is OK, that sounds scary.

On one of my son's College applications they asked if he would waive his right to review access letters or statements of recommendations written on his behalf.

We were surprised about this and did a little research and its in regard to a law called FERPA which provides the students the rights to review these documents. My understanding is that teachers usually request a waiver because they think it is inappropriate to request a recommendation and then reserve the right to review it. I also have read that college admissions staff tend to discount the recommendations if they were reviewed by the student.

But I also read that these review rights don't actually take place until after the student was accepted and enrolled. I can't imagine my son caring enough to review the recommendation after enrolling in school. Which seems inconsistent timing-wise with the concerns of the admissions departments.
