(I could not think of a title today. I just sat there for 15 minutes, staring at the title space with a blank stare on my face.)
Wheee! Today was much more relaxed. I woke up determined to make it so, and it was. I liked it. I still woke up early, but went for a nice relaxing walk with the puppy instead of a run. Many of you asked what time I go to bed to wake up at 4:30. I try to head that way by 9:30, but I usually don’t get there until 10pm. 6.5 hours seems to be enough sleep for me.
After the walk this morning, I had some yummy yog.
Fage, almond flour pancake, carob chips, cinnamon
At lunchtime, I did another relaxing thing and came home to sit on my couch while I ate. I love being home in the daytime, even if it is only 15 minutes.
1 egg, 2 egg whites, spinach, peas, nutritional yeast
Fudgy flourless cookie, I found the recipe here – they are so insanely decadent
When I gave my kiddos over to the PE teacher for a while, a co-worker and I ran to starbucks for an afternoon treat.
Tall skinny latte
When I was working in the office after school, I had half of a ham sandwich that I had packed when I was home at lunchtime.
One piece of bread, mustard, a few ham slices, snap peas
I came home around 6:30 and grilled up some chicken and roasted a few of my favorite veggies. Easy-peasy-perfection.
Grilled chicken breast, roasted carrots + brussles sprouts
For dessert…fruit cereal! I get excited every time I eat this.
Apple, banana, coconut flakes, pepitas, carob chips, milk
In the 3rd grade world…
I had two kiddos throw up in my class today. Totally unrelated. One was at 7:45am, one was at 3:00pm. We don’t have windows that open in the classroom, so it smelled incredibly bad all day long. I almost threw up in response to the stench, but luckily I was able to escape to the hallway for a few moments and compose myself before telling throw-upper #2 that he shouldn’t eat 2 peaches for snack, chug a water bottle, and then be-bop around the room like a pogo stick. Silly kids.
