I forgot how time consuming and exhausting my job is! I also forgot how much I laugh during the day. It’s a fair trade.

I worked from 7am – 7pm today, and then came home to do more work for an hour. I can’t even begin to tell you what I was doing either…just work.

Also, I started doing Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred this morning. It was just a moderate workout – but I was taking it kind of easy because I wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of length. It’s only 20ish minutes, so tomorrow I will push it for sure.

Here is what I had post-Jillian

Yup, more post-race swag. I reaalllly liked this. It was so tangy and the perfect texture for a smoothie. Although I have 3 more in the fridge…I would probably buy this with my own dinero.

I also had a ww English muffin with Justin’s cinnamon peanut butter – delish.

On another note, I cannot WAIT for daylight savings time to end…which I think is this Sunday! (Does anyone know for sure?) Part of the reason I love it so much (besides the fact that I am a 24 year-old with the mindset of someone 50 years older) is that I can maybe start to get some good breakfast shots again! We don’t have a lot of light in our kitchen, and my breakfast pictures have been increasingly dark and ugly because the sun doesn’t usually rise until I’m in the car. (See above photos for proof)

My classroom, however, is lit spectacularly!

Newman’s protein packed pretzels (ppp) – which are really growing on me. Plus a tiny bit of cottage cheese, a pear and a Lara bar (I didn’t eat the baby bar).

The pear got all cut up and took a dive into the itsy bit of cc that was left in the container.

What a spectacular combo. The only thing it could have made it better is cinnamon. Duh.

Then for “snack” I abandoned my one-bite-policy because I forgot how
I get at the end of the day without snacks (did I really just have one week off?! Feels like longer.)

I had the whole darn cupcake, and half of this little pink candy that a sweet student brought me from her vacation in England. It didn’t make me feel full at all, but gave me the sugar buzz I needed to get another 3 hours of work under my belt.

I needed something wholesome for dinner – which usually means salad.

Best. Salad. Ever. Lettuce, cucumber, ½ avocado ½ acorn squash (cooked a few nights ago, and warmed in the microwave), a sprinkle of cheddar cheese and lots-o-balsamic-vinegar. I love the combination of cold/hot foods together. Warm squash on cold salad is unbelievable. Try it.

Aaaand I just looked at the clock and realized that it’s way past my embarrassingly early bedtime, so off I go.

I leave you with some Dove love.

In how many languages do you know how to say hello? What are they?!
