[Disclaimer: While this month's WIAW theme is "Sensible Snacking," you'll notice I ate almost no snacks today! I'll share more tomorrow.]
7:00 am - Breakfast at school
I completely forgot to take a picture of my innovative breakfast. I combined the following:
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/4 cup Erewhon rice cereal
- 6 ounces plain Chobani yogurt (2%)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1/2 banana
It was similar to my overnight oats, except I didn't soak it the night before, and the rice cereal added an excellent crunch!
Today was check-out day at school, which officially marks the end of my employment there. I've mentioned that I'm sad to go, but I know it's for the best, and I took today to reflect a bit and say goodbye to good friends. I'm not one to get too emotional in public, so I was thankful for the excuse to pack up quickly and head out, but that's not to say I didn't acknowledge the end of an era.
1:00 pm - Lunch at my new school
Leftovers of Sunday's dinner
I've mentioned briefly that I accepted a job offer at a new school. I am thrilled! I get to work closer to home, the school seems incredible, and I won't be a temporary teacher anymore. At this point, it looks like I'll be teaching 9th and 11th grades. There were so many signs pointing to this job, and I really feel ready for a new adventure. Today, the English department invited me to join them for lunch so I could meet everyone, get some books for summer planning, and check out the campus (and the campus is GORGEOUS!). Everyone seemed very nice and welcoming, and I look forward to joining such a great school.
3:00 pm - Afternoon snack at home
Chocolate chip cookie dough Lara bar
which is now my favorite flavor! Let's not analyze this one. It was delicious. Then I took a nap.
7:00 pm - Post-workout glass of milk
For my workout, I completed four miles total: 1.5 on the treadmill and 2.5 outside. I'm excited to get some yoga in tomorrow, along with some more cardio and strength.
8:00 pm - Dinner at home
Yep, I made breakfast for dinner. Terry had to drive to the San Diego area for work today and spent about 5 hours in the car, so he was grateful for an easy, comforting meal. I ate two waffles (with some butter and maple syrup), two slices of peppered turkey bacon from Trader Joe's, and an egg over easy, plus about 1/2 cup raspberries.
The dinner was at home, with Terry, which will always be my favorite way to enjoy a meal. Terry, cooking healthy foods, and loving to eat--I see these as constants in my life. Today I said farewell to one job and essentially began another, but coming home to my best friend will always be the best part of any day.
