Happy Thursday! We’ve almost made it through the week! Thursday is my favorite day by FAR. I just love the anticipation of the weekend. I woke up, walked the pup, and then RUSHED to get out the door. I don’t know why I can’t ever make it out the door on time…seriously. I’m awake 3 hours before I need to be at school, but I still can’t manage it. So, I took my breakfast on the road in my cute pink tupperware.

½ cup oats, a couple spoonfuls of greek yogurt, sunflower seeds, a little square of chocolate waaaay in the back.

I ate this sitting at my desk while my kiddos walked in the door. It was yummy, but AS ALWAYS, it left me hungrier than before I started. Dang oatmeal. Lunch was something new.

Flatout wrap, hummus, edamame, garbanzo beans, a few more sunflower seeds.

Unfortunately, that apple in the background ended up going in the trash. It was given to me by a student who picks his nose all day, every day. I just couldn’t get that image out of my head. I’m sure I could have washed it and it would have been fine, but quite frankly, the student who gave it to me just plain grosses me out, so I opted not to eat it. Plus, it was a little mushy and there is nothing worse than a mushy apple.

Later in the afternoon, I had my fave Clif Bar.

Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum.

After school, I actually went to the gym! An after-school-gym-workout is very unusual for me, but I ended up really enjoying myself. I started with Janetha’s 4×5 HIIT workout, and then finished up with another 3 miles. All in all, it was a little over 5 miles. I love running outside, but for a while, I didn’t think I could stick it out that long on the treadmill, however I kept thinking about Angie’s Treadmill 10 miler and that got me through it. I felt great afterwards. Plus, I saw two of my co-workers at the gym, which was really fun. (Hi Beth and Mandy!)

I came home and prepared my dinner (Meeker has to work late. Boo.)

Grilled chicken on a bowl of mashed cauliflower and broccoli – so, so good.

In the 3rd grade world…

My students had this little “game” they played all day:

Every time I turned my back to write something on the board, the entire class would start counting down: 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! It was so weird. I have no idea who started/planned it, but each time it happened, I laughed my head off. Of course, my laughter made it worse and perpetuated the silliness. Working with kids is funny.
