I got my three squares today but I have almost no pictures. Breakfast and “dinner” were provided by my school and I didn’t feel comfortable with the food blog conversation quite yet so I didn’t bring a camera. (Interesting side note: I think part of why it seemed embarrassing is because I’ve gained some weight. If I’d lost weight I think I’d be fine with it. Do any other bloggers feel this way?)
I ended up eating 1/2 a bagel with cream cheese and a few bites of eggs for breakfast; a bit of chicken broccoli pizza for lunch, and 1/2 a fried wing, 1/2 a baked wing, and a mini turkey buger slider with salad for dinner. The dinner was “bbq style” at a restraunt in Brooklyn and most of the choices seemed pretty unappealing, so I came home and had this
A non-fat blueberry Trader Joes Greek yogurt with a sliced dinosaur plum. Sliced plum in Greek yogurt is currently one of my favorite things to eat, but these ingredients were both new to me. I enjoyed the plum, I’m not sure it is superior to a plain black or red plum, but look at the cute label!
I liked the yogurt as well; this was my first Trader Joes experience and I am pleasantly surprised. The yogurt wasn’t quite as sour as some greek varieties can be, but was not overly sweet. AND the blueberry came from real pieces of blueberry.
I’m feeling a bit worried because I am so tired! I left my house at 7:15am and got home at 7:00pm, which is a long day, but during the school year my hours are even longer. I leave by 6:30 and often don’t get home until 7:30! And today was just a pd (professional development) session, which is much less stressful and tiring than a full day of teaching, oh no! I’m excited though, the pd was about The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teenages.
The school bought planners for all the students and we will be helping them to implement the strategies in the book.
I also found two more reasons to be excited when I finally made it home:
1) I may actually have time to go for a run tonight in my new running shoes that I bought last weekend:
2) and I found this package from my mother on my doorstep:
magazines and a bracelet from St. Croix.
My parents have lived in St. Thomas for more than 20 years and this was the first time they have taken a trip to the nearby island of St. Croix.
***Edited to add – my grazing ways did not really fill me up, so I went back to the kitchen later (following a walk to the grocery store) and grabbed this –
