Breakfast was another cereal mash – but with a warm change, suggested by the sweets goddess.

How sweet it was.

First, I microwaved one tbs. almond butter, ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce, and 1 tbs. cocoa powder. Then, I poured cereal (Kashi – Honey Sunshine and puffed rice) and then mixed and mashed.

Unfortunately, like Tuesday, I couldn’t bring my camera to school because of our standardized testing. Nothing electronic, especially something with documenting capabilities is allowed inside a secure testing environment. So – the phone and the camera stayed at home. I’ll let you use your imaginations for lunch. I assure you, it was nothing exciting.

But I did have a snack worth mentioning…

This flavor was really sweet. I liked it, but I have a gigantic sweet tooth. It almost tasted like the creamy lime slush from Sonic. I have neglected to mention that these drinks have 22g of sugar. That kind of thing doesn’t really bother me, but I know that a lot of you are cognizant of those types of facts, so I thought I should mention it. I liked this, but it was more like dessert.

I also switched up my workout routine today. Shock! I still woke up early and went for a 30 minute walk with Punky, because I don’t think my body is capable of waking up without some sort of movement. However, after school, a fellow teacher and I did a Gilad workout video in our school gym! This guy is hilarious, and I really feel like I got a good workout. The cardio was a little lacking, but my arms were so tired after 40 minutes.

I was glad to come home to a crockpot of veggies.

In honor of Vegan Thursday…



This morning, into the crockpot went:

  • 2 heads broccoli
  • 4 carrots + 4 baby carrots
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 can black beans
  • ¼ cup salsa
  • 1 tbs. cumin
  • 1 tbs. coriander
  • Sprinkle of cayenne pepper
  • Salt/pepper
  • ~6 cups water

Cooked on low for 11 hours. Then rice was later cooked and added. Yum, yum, yum.

In the 3rd grade world…

Our Valentine’s Day celebration is tomorrow! I had good intentions of going to the grocery store to buy my class valentines, however, when I went to the copier to run off some worksheets after school…I found an even more exciting valentines’ gift.


I ran off 24 copies of this bad boy, and colored them while sitting on the couch.
