Back to Work and WIAW

I am back to work, attempting, with all that is mighty, to prepare for my little kiddos. If you are a teacher you know that is not possible but hey I am trying! lol

I spent all day in meeting yesterday and today I have to head to the convention center for all day workshops for someone to tell me something about teaching HA... So needless to say I am over the meeting thing and have had no time to myself so far this week.

Peas and Crayons

I didn't want to miss out on WIAW so it is 5am and I am hurrying to finishe before I have to get ready for an early day! :o)

In case you missed it on Monday, one of my good friends Carissa, had us over this weekend for a Pizza party and we had so much fun... check it out!

Favorites from this week so far

Breakfast:  Quinoa with Protein powder, Almond Milk and topped with Banana and Kiwi
Lunch: Chicken salad with quinoa and tomatoes, topped with guacamole instead of dressing
   I get up at 4:30am every morning so I usually hungry by 7 or 8 :o) knowing I was going to be in meeting all day I thought I may need a energy boost too. Solution... Coffee Protein Shake. Left over coffee I keep in the fridge, almond milk, protein powder, flax, chia and an antioxidant splenda. SOO GOOD!
Post Workout: Protein shake with berries, chia,  flax and almond milk. (Note: I did not drink these in the same day)

Dinner: Chicken Butternut squash quesadilla. Much like an older recipe I posted but I added chicken. :o)

I guess I need to go get ready... I have been "designated" as the driver today by my coworkers LOL At least I know we will get there quickly that way :o)

Ciao and back to school,



  1. hahaha "@least I know we'll get there quickly". That may be one of the main reasons why I never mind driving places with other people. Driving with a slow person may be one of the worst things EVER!

  2. I find it so difficult to get up in the morning. Kudos to you! But a coffee protein shake sounds delicious!
