Something’s gotta give

My schedule is eating me alive. In other news, here are some meals I have been enjoying. Last night I made a spaghetti squash, cut it in half, doused it in Meeker’s homemade tomato sauce, added some chees and feasted after a long day. This was the most yummy thing. Breakfast was coffee and a handful … Continue reading

The Dog Track

Tuesdays are speed work in my half-marathon training plan. I usually don’t bring the dog because she can be a hassle. However, I brought her to the track this morning and she was perfect! I didn’t have her on the leash, but she ran right beside me in the next lane for 4x1600s. (Plus, when … Continue reading

Life is just a bowl of broccoli

The broccoli-love continued with lunch. Lunch was 1 head of broccoli (roasted last night) with cottage cheese, and about ½ cup of stuffing from a box. Not a typical food (the stuffing) for me, but very good nonetheless. The broccoli-love continued with dinner. Romain, 1 head of roasted broccoli, 1 apple, 1 shredded carrot, and … Continue reading

Lazy Day

It is spirit week at my school, and today is lazy day! That means that I am wearing sweatpants and a sweatshirt to work today. I vote for all Mondays to be like this. Breakfast was a repeat, sort of. 1 egg on the left, hot sauce on the right. When I put them together, … Continue reading

Broccoli Head

When I was a little kid, my grandpa used to tell me I was going to turn into a string bean, because that is all I ever ate. Well…if that is the case, I am about 5 minutes from turning into a giant head of broccoli. I just can’t get enough of the green goodness. … Continue reading

Summer is Back

Summer weather came back for the day! I took full advantage of the sunshine and instead of grading papers – we went to the dog park all afternoon. It was glorious and we had fun playing in the water with the doggie. I ate some pretty fantastic things, too. Dried apple rings and 2 baby … Continue reading

Something New

I have said (about a million times) how much I rely on routine to keep my sanity. But today I tried something new. Pre-Run Meal: And then had to hang out for a while before heading out the door for my 10 miles – which were very good! It was easy this morning, and I … Continue reading

Cookie for Breakfast

Meeker found a good kickboxing workout on instant Netflix for me this morning. The original plan was to ride the bike, but it was pouring rain. Oh well. Plan B ended up being enjoyable. I was starving after exercise and shower. I scrambled downstairs to hurriedly make a bowl of goodness. Cottage cheese, a peach, … Continue reading

Thanks Goodness for Thursday

I have a teacher in-service day tomorrow, so it might as well be a Friday! I love teaching and being with the kiddos, but a day without them at school is pretty much a day off. In honor of my favorite day of the week, I ate my favorite stand-by meals all day. Lunch: 2/3 … Continue reading

A Square Meal

It’s no secret…I’m a snacker. I love snacks – it gives me more to look forward to during the day, and then it usually prevents me from gorging myself at dinner. However, today was pretty snack-less, and I came home with the desire to have a proper sit-down meal. Salad. Sweet Potato. Pork Chop. Corn. … Continue reading
