7:00am – 10:00pm; those are the times I left from and got home to my house today. The workload this week is off the charts. FYI – because I’m from a recently failing school my job is a little different than a “normal” English teacher’s. We have to keep a ginormous binder of week to week assessments, an incredibly time consuming task. I already know I’m not going to make it to the gym until Sunday, which makes me pretty damn sad. I’m trying to keep a good attitude though; since I’m swamped anyways I’m going to do as much extra as I can so next week I can devote some time to my health.
I left the house at 7:00, but I actually got up at 7:52. Which meant no packed breakfast or lunch. My improvisations weren’t great, but it’s just as well because I could not have sat down to eat anyway. For “breakfast,” a bag of soy crisps left in my desk.
And “lunch” was a bag of cheezits. I would normally make a healthier vending machine choice than this (and I actually did) but I hit the wrong number by accident and was out of change.
I did get a small snack of actual food – a slice of cheddar cheese and a few bites of potato salad – because the school upstairs nicely shared with us when they realized we were still at school at 6:30.
When I came home A and I went to Starbucks to do some grading. I had a cheese and fruit plate. I adore these! Alongside a medium iced coffee (unsweetened) with a drizzle of skim milk. I usually get lattes because I don’t drink much milk, but that seemed too heavy today.
And on the way home I bought a slice of ricotta and spinach pizza.
Today was a lot of carbs and a lot of cheese. However, I didn’t eat too many calories, and I did manage to squeeze it one serving each of fruits and veggies! I have at least and hour and half more of work to go, so I’ve got to scadaddle!
