|Okay new post time... I haven't had much to say the past few days. Craig and I have both been really busy with school work, in fact I'm just taking a break from school for 30 minutes before I have Spanish class at 6pm (I started at 9:30 am..!). I've got 2 papers due at the end of this week. The first is a persuasive research paper 5-6 pages long on the Death Penalty and why it should be abolished, and the second is another 5 page paper on the roles of Women in Hinduism and Buddhism. Phew!
Other than that, not much is going on. Last night I went to check out a place I'm going to start volunteering at. It's a horse ranch that holds lessons for disabled children. The program I'm working with is called a 'Therapeutic Riding Program' and my job will be to walk along side kids as they ride the horse and make sure they don't fall off.. last night was my first time and I must say I'm not sure how well I'll be able to hold kids up when the belly of the horse is higher than my head... we'll see though. It was just really fun to be out in the open air with horses, ponies, dogs, a goat and sheep, and a miniature pony. Oh yeah and a cat and rooster. Very fun!
Lastly my health is going well. The weight loss slowed down but that was to be expected. I'm 15 lbs lighter and fitting more comfortably into my clothes, which is a great feeling. And because I love deserts, my recipe of the week is a combination of getting good vitamins and one of your fruit servings, while making it a desert. It's a baked apple, and it's yuuuummmmy and only has about 111 calories and 1 gram of fat!
1 tablespoon Brown Sugar
a few drops of vanilla extract
.5 tsp of margarine
Cut the apple into slices, with the seeds and core cut out
Put the apple back together and put tin foil around it, to hold the shape
Open the apple up a bit and drop in the brown sugar, extract and margarine
Close up tight and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes
YUM! Here's my pic from today.
