Whew! I feel like I’ve had about 30 seconds to myself today. I started this morning with level 2 of the 30 day shred. Halfway through I had to put down my weights to take a picture of the incredible sunrise happening outside my window.

After shredding, I showered, made an easy breakfast and headed to school.

Fage (sorry Cait!), almond flour pancake, sprinkling of granola

The school day was busy, busy, busy. I swear I didn’t sit down once the whole day. I don’t often wear heels to work, but I did today and my feet were throbbing by the time I walked out at 6pm.

Midmorning I had this yummy bar-

Nothing but love. This was the last of my samples and I’m sad about it. The original flavor was my favorite, although the cherry came in a close second. When lunchtime snuck up on me, I had a bowl goodness.

Edamame, garbanzo beans, corn, cottage cheese + hot water


salted, peppered and all mixed up. Yum.

I also snacked on a bag of veggies while grading later in the afternoon.

Dinner could NOT come soon enough. I was famished when I walked in the door. I didn’t really have anything in mind, so after reading about a certain hippie’s dinner – I straight up copied her. Well, I would have copied her if I had oats – I didn’t, so I used bulgur instead.

Savory Bulgur – topped with hummus

One of the best things I’ve ever eaten – not kidding.

  • ½ cup bulgur wheat cooked in
  • 1¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup peas
  • 1 cup frozen spinach
  • 2 tbs. nutritional yeast
  • The best all purpose seasoning…

I could use this on everything. Well, maybe not cake. Either way, the savory bulgur was dang delicious and I WILL make it again. Since I stole the hippie’s idea for dinner, I decided to just dive in and have her favorite dessert, too.

almonds and carob chips

I went for a nice unwinding walk after dinner and caught up with my best friend on the phone. I came home to find that it was pretty much time for bed. Zip! This day snuck right past me. Here’s to the next 21 school days zipping by, too.

In the 3rd grade world…


My ex-chinese student makes me these adorably small origami stars out of scraps of paper. I have no earthly idea how she does it, but I love them.
