First day of week - awesome!

Ok, so I got this new notebook to start keeping track of my general thinking, food, points used, goals for each day. It took me just a couple of minutes to sit down yesterday and make my goals. I reflected on them today and felt pretty good about it!

Yesterday, I made a goal of only using 3-5 of my weekly points (the extra Weight Watchers Points they give you for each week). By the end of the day, I hadn't used any! Wednesdays, my staff meets for 2 hours after school. I am always tempted by the snacks, but kept is to celery and a handful of Tostitos yesterday. Awesome. Dinner was a hodge-podge at our house. The kids had leftover mac and cheese and a veggie burger, Ryan had two PB and J sandwiches on his mom's homemade bread, and I had a Morningstar Vegan Griller on an Arnold Sandwich Thin with a Laughing Cow Cheese. I also made some kale chips - my first ever - and dipped them in a little bit of honey mustard. They were really good! Kale stinks while you're cooking it but they tasted good. I was actually super filled up at the end of that meal. I wish I had pictures, but seriously, I have no time for all of that. Maybe someday...

I had made a goal to do an upper body weight workout and ab work yesterday. In my running class with my students - ranging from K-7 - we did the yoga for runners. It was amazing - in so many ways. The 20 min. session was perfect for my students - and they listened. Really well. It was the coolest 20 minutes! This morning, I woke up sore. I'm not sure if it's because I"m having the busiest week ever, or if it's from the yoga, but it's a good kind of sore. It was so hard to wake up though! Plus, A1 and A2 ended up snuggling with me this morning and that is always the best!

Today, I have a short run scheduled with my students and a 3 miler scheduled with friends. The 3 miler has to happen - my training for the mini is lacking!


  1. So glad I am not the only one who's training is lacking! At least you can do 3 miles...I can DO's just not pretty. I'm ready to get outside and do it, that's for sure.

    So glad to hear you had a good day...believe me I made up for the badness for you! Yesterday was AWFUL for me! Today will be better...I'm determined to make it good!

  2. I am so proud of you for teaching the students yoga! It does wonders for those who learn to appreciate it at an early stage in life.

  3. Kale chips dipped in honey mustard sounds delicious.
