Nuts. Crazy. Ridiculous. From a 5:15 am workout to one of students throwing chairs and jumping on tables to not getting home until after 6:30pm, it was one of those days. I had a great dinner planned but by the time I got in my car to leave school at 6:30pm, I gave in and told Brady to pick us up Subway, ASAP. He did and my footlong, yes footlong, veggie delight was just what I needed!
Today was much more calm than yesterday, I did not feel like I was going to have a heart attack at any point today, which was not true for yesterday. The day went as follows:
5:00 am: workout at the gym
45 min. alternating weights and treadmill in 5 min. intervals
15 min. on the elliptical
15 min. stretching
6:30am: home to shower/get ready for school
7:25am: breakfast – Oats with flax, almond butter, strawberries, pear and smashed banana – in the car on the way to school
7:50 – 4:50pm: school/meetings/planning/grading
5:00pm: teacher store
6:00pm: meeting with Katie to look at wedding invitations for her June wedding!!
7:00pm: start dinner. Chicken Cacciatore from Ellie Krieger: The Foods You Crave pg. 204
Thanks to Jen , from Running with Food for turning me on to the group Craving Ellie in My Belly! They make an Ellie Krieger recipe each week and post about it on Thursdays! I love the cookbook and the idea of a new healthy recipe each week!
7:30pm: eat this DELICIOUS dinner. Both Brady and I loved it. I added more veggies, zucs and squash, than it called for and I left the mushrooms and onions seperate from Brady’s because his taste buds have not matured yet!!
On top of extra veggies and spaghetti squash on my plate:
Brady added black olives and ate his atop a plate of pasta! We were both happy!
