Caffine and Junk Food

No, your timestamp is not broken, I am in fact posting at 3:30am.  It’s been a long day, and I still have to shower, but I’m trying to be consistent so I wanted to do a quick post.  I ate quite a bit of crap today, but I did a lot of walking too, so hopefully it mildly evens out.

I didn’t have time to eat before I left the house but I did manage to eat breakfast at my desk.


Sliced Granny Smith apple and a Kashi bar.  This was actually my only break all day.  I had a double coverage (my school doesn’t hire subs) and then I went on a part-day field trip.  We are taking the 8th graders in groups to see high schools and today we went to a tech school in the neighborhood.  I was really interesting to see some of the fun options available.  On the school bus back I ate a snack the school sent us home with – fat free chocolate milk,


and two oatmeal raisin (whole wheat) cookies.


This only had 270calories and 1.5grams of saturated fat in total, but I feel like the cafeteria system could probably do better.  The school did send our kids away with sweet goodie bags – twisty pencils, dictionaries, etc.  I thought that was a pretty great gesture.  I even got a teacher bag!


I stayed late after school and had time for a quick leftovers dinner before I had to scamper off to make copies for tomorrow.


An onion bagel with the 2nd half of my bbq tofu topped with extra sharp cheddar.  I toasted the bagel, assembled, and put it in the oven for 5minutes at 450*  It was yummy but I was still starving.  I had two random handfuls of candy before I made it out of the house.



A and I worked a few hours at Starbucks and I had a Venti iced coffee with a big splash of skim milk.


I was still hungry, so I got a lowfat blueberry coffee cake which I devoured in under two minutes and made myself sick.


On the way home, we walked to the grocery store to pick up this.


And I had another cup of coffee (splash of skim) when I got home!


I really enjoyed this flavor.  I’ve decided “home coffee” is going to be my new thing.  Challenge update is $70 – eeek!

I’m being observed 1st period tomorrow (my all boys class, 1st period on a Friday, it’s going to be hilarious) which is why I have quite so much to do on a Thursday.  I ought to be somewhat, if not well, rested so I’ve got to get to my shower and bed.  I’m sure my readers are all sleeping as I post, so I’ll end with – Good Morning!

    Hi Emily–Thanks for your comment on my blog! Just found yours and I think it’s great. My sister is an 8th grade teacher, too, so it makes me miss her reading about your school 😦 Happy Friday to you!

    Do they have internet access at Starbucks? I’ve always wondered about studying there just for the sake of it. The smell of coffee.. mmmm. lol.

    Good luck with the observation!
