Hi friends! Before I get started sharing my eats (thank you to Jenn for hosting this awesome party that I look forward to reading/writing each week ), I want to go over some goals I’ve set for myself for the month of April. I’m a big list person, and I’m always looking for ways to improve myself, so I figure blogging my goals will help with the accountability!
April Goals 2012
- Be more patient with my students. I feel like recently I’ve been getting very impatient with my kids. Just because I spend 6 hours a day, 5 days a week with the kiddos doesn’t mean that I have the right to take out any aggravation or frustration on them. Just something to keep in mind!
- Make sure to keep up with my calorie needs before/after a long run BUT keep it up with healthy foods. I tend to fall into the “reward myself with junk food” trap easily (hence the pizza and frozen yogurt that has popped up the past few weekends). I just don’t want it to become a habit, and I’d like to keep that stuff as treats.
- Chill out!!!!! I worry about everything, and I’ve noticed my anxiety getting worse recently. Some hard stuff has been going on with my family and I just need to accept that not everything is in my control. Sometimes I just need to go with the flow….
and last, but certainly not least….
- Switch up my food choices. Clearly, I fall into ruts, and I stick with what I know. From now on, this will be the last apple and peanut butter mess breakfast you will see for a while. I’m also going to try to add more variety to my lunches as well.
That being said…. Happy W.I.A.W! :) Now it’s time to check out my eats….
7:30 A.M. – Kombucha
8:15 A.M. – Apple Slices and PB2 Peanut Butter Mess
Goodbye for now, my delicious friend.
10:00 A.M. - Cucumber slices (unpictured)
11:45 A.M. – Whole wheat wrap with turkey, sprouts, and kale. Arugula and green bean salad on the side!
Hello Halloween plate that I found in my drawer!
2:00 P.M. – Tea and pistachios while grading mounds of papers during my prep.
4:00 P.M. – Spinach, chocolate protein powder, and Almond Milk smoothie (Looks nasty, tastes like a chocolate milkshake).
7:00 P.M. – After a run and Bodypump, Bobby and I threw together a quick dinner of chicken, roasted green beans (tastes like french fries… yum), and some TLC Pita Chips on the side.
8:30 P.M. – Some spoonfuls of this Arctic Zero “Ice Cream” with some tea. Has anyone else tried this yet?
There ya have it… and next week, I promise… you’ll be shocked with some variety! ;)
What are some April goals you’ve set for yourself??
Anyone have any good ideas for an Easter appetizer?
Edited to add: I have a VERY exciting event that I just found out I’ll be attending tonight! Hint: I’ve mentioned this type of event in past blog posts! Any guesses??? First person to guess correctly I’ll bake you my famous chocolate chip cookies and ship them to you ASAP!
