I did something sporty for the 3rd day in a row, Woot Woot! I know in advance I will not be being active tomorrow (I’m going to try to knock off my quarter grading before it is due), but that’s ok because I planned it.
After my lovely breakfast post, every meal today involved something new. For lunch I tried this yogurt.
It is Greek yogurt by Cabot (I thought they were only a cheese company, have you seen or tried this product?). While I didn’t like this as much as Fage, and I wouldn’t eat it regularly because it is flavored and not plain, this certainly could hold its weight against some of the other brands. Excitingly, this is not even the fancy yogurt I mentioned the other day, and today I found another new yogurt find that you’ll be seeing later. Yogurt, yogurt everywhere….. With my yogurt I had 2clementines and diet Squirt (another new find I’m pretty psyched about).
My students took their midterm for ELA today so it was a nice and easy day. I had a coverage with a 6th grade class – my school doesn’t hire substitutes – so I did get to teach at least a little. At the end of the day I stayed and did grading/hung out with some coworkers. The boys’ class got one of my friends so upset today that she cried, and she is a rockstar, something needs to be done!
I knew I needed a pure sugar kick to get my though 5 at school so I ate a bag of Skittles.
I am all for sugar, but this just made me feel sick 😦
When I got home I ate a small chunk of cheese,
and rushed back out to Crunch for a 7:15 Pilates class. It was an hour long and it kicked my butt, the instructor was brutal! Even though a lot of people were struggling, I was pretty upset that I couldn’t finish every set for some of the moves, that is literally the first time that’s happened to me – all the more motivation to keep up the gym kick! I did ok though, A came by the room to stare at my butt and he said I looked better than the slackers in the back 🙂
We got home from the gym in time for an hour of Scrubs! Tuesdays are my new favorite day, damn I love Scrubs! While I watched I ate my final night of the leftovers.
This was 2/3C cooked quinoa, 4oz baked tofu, veggies, and instead of cheese tonight I used a drop of this stuff.
A coworker went to St. Thomas on vacation and was nice enough to bring me a sauce from home – West Indians love the spicy stuff! This was SPICY though! I literally used just a drop and my mouth was on fire.
I probably should have waited to let my dinner digest, but I was feeling hungry still so I had some snacks. My last Kashi dark chocolate coconut bar,
and a bowl of homemade popcorn topped with 1T SmartBalance Light.
This was waaaay more than I needed. I ate it all (of course, popcorn, self-control, and I just do not mix!) but I knew about halfway through that I didn’t need to/shouldn’t. A has stern orders to remember that I’m basically a goldfish for popcorn and will eat myself to death. Not unnecessary, however, was the additon of melted SmartBalance. For only 50calories it just made this snack so decadent.
I need to shower and hurry to bed if I have any chance of getting up and to school early tomorrow. What new food item do you want to try this week?
