Today was the first day of my last fall semester of college… undergrad, that is.
Back in April, I posted about the courses I’ll be taking this semester [The Final Fall Four], but since then I swapped out a class, so now I’m taking Nutrition Counseling instead of Nutrition and Physical Fitness (which I’m looking forward to taking in the spring).
Fall 2011 Classes
CONSUMER HEALTH – ONLINE
Examination of major health care consumer issues from historical and contemporary perspectives. Discussion of cost, availability, and quality of health care and their relationship to political and economic activities. Identification of national, regional, and local health trends affecting consumers. Analysis of individual and collective consumer strategies.
Techniques of writing nonfiction articles and features for publication; where to find material, markets. Student writings may appear in campus publications such as The Orion.
- I learned today that we are required to create a blog – check!
NUTRITION Counseling & Education
In addition to this class, I am participating in a supplemental nutrition counseling internship; one of the objectives of this extra ‘class’ is to prepare students for the opportunity to be a mentor for the FitU program on campus.
NUTRITION THROUGHOUT THE LIFECYCLE
A survey of nutritional needs from conception to death, including the relationship of nutrients to health and well-being and factors which affect food selection of different population groups.
Also in the mix:
I am the Communications officer – a weekly commitment – for the Nutrition & Food Science Association (a.k.a. Nutrition Club). Believe it or not, I’m looking forward to having a full plate again (pun intended) – good times ahead!
Hopefully I’ll be a bit more disciplined about blogging and sharing my nutty recipes, too. Oh, and I must register for a race or two here pretty soon because this runnin’ nut is craving a fun, new training plan.
I have a 7:30am spin class on the agenda tomorrow to start off my Tuesday, so I better hop into bed… It’s a school night.
P.S. I crossed off one of my 10 goals for 2010… better late than never. I’ve parallel parked twice in the past couple days without causing damage to Little Blue or any other vehicles. It’s the little things.
