One Day Down…181 to go?

I keeed, I keeed.  I would never count down the days left of school ;)  I treasure every moment!  I really do.


There’s teach all ready to go on her first day!  Seriously…a child.  I have to say, I had a good first day.  My students were excited to be there and so was I.  It was great seeing my students from last year as big fifth graders! FIT This morning I woke up early for some yoga.  I did YD Power Yoga.  It was a nice wakeup and a great way to start the day.




I had some pumpkin-y oats.  In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 1 spoonful pumpkin butter
  • cinnamon
  • splash of vanilla

AM Snack:


CLIF mini bar – PB crunch


lunch  I made two mini caprese paninis on mini ciabatta rolls last night.  They had fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.  I also had grapes.  I was full afterward, so I saved my apple for an after school snack.


P1020684   I whipped up some free-range chicken marinated in balsamic vinegar, Italian seasoning, olive oil and one crushed garlic clove.  I also threw together some Annie’s Alfredo shells.  I made the “tangy” version with yogurt instead of milk.  It was totally tangy.  I think I’ll do half and half next time.  I also had a salad of the usual:  organic baby arugula, tomatoes, red onion and balsamic vinaigrette.  Dessert was two TJ’s dark chocolate almond cookies.  Oh and there may or may not have been a glass of Sauv. B.  in there while cooking ;)

Tomorrow I’m going to try to do 5 miles before work.  I’m not sure if I can do it!  We shall see!
