Believe it or not, most of my nutrition friends and I only have one year to go until we can sit for our R.D. exam. Once we pass, we can WORK! Remember when I had a full-time job and made enough money to pay rent and buy cute clothes? Holy SHOOT, do I miss that! I'll have to write a post (for those of you who care) about the R.D. process and what you have to do to get your degree and registration. It's a lot of work!
Here's me and my nutrition friends on Thursday at brunch after our last final of the semester:
Speaking of writing, I had the most outstanding opportunity last semester that I will likely continue to do for the rest of the academic year. I've been in charge of social media for a blog and a Facebook and Twitter page that promotes a book written by two dietitians called Too Busy To Diet. It's geared towards busy professionals who want to live a healthy lifestyle and need shortcuts for meal planning, healthy recipes, etc. The chapters are short, and you could probably get through the book in a day.
This book is heavily researched and has been reviewed by other dietitians, doctors, and personal trainers. Monica and Jackie also have years and years of dietetic practice under their belt. I believe in this book, otherwise I would not mention it here!
If you want a copy (in paper or for your Kindle), you can get it on Amazon.com here. If you want to see what I've been up to with the social media, "like" the Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, or read the blog. It says that all of the blog posts are by Jacqueline, but that ones I wrote say in the first line that they were written by me (Jennifer Martin). I update the Facebook and Twitter page 5 days a week. I give you FREE nutrition advice! Who wouldn't want that?!?
So I have been cheating on The Little Jogger, but I swear it's for a good cause.
I'm so excited to have extra free time for TLJ!
