I have exciting news!  After a year of being underemployed and searching for a fulltime job in education….I GOT ONE!!!!  I will be an instructor at a school for children with disabilities starting next Wednesday.  It’s a year round school (hence starting next Wednesday), but I do get 1 week off every month or two, plus long vacation time around holidays.  Hurray for employment!

Breakfast

091

I worked out before breakfast and then enjoyed my last piece of Rudi’s Bakery-Nut and Oat bread.  Topped it with my homemade jelly and peanut butter.  Half a banana on the side.  After breakfast, I did some laundry and cleaning.  Since I’m planning on moving closer to my new job (an hour commute=ew), I made lots of phone calls.  At least I have two months to decide on a new place 🙂

Lunch

092

I was starving by the time lunch came around.  I ate a leftover slice of pizza with a huge Argula and Spinach salad topped with cashews and cucumber dressing.  I finished off some more laundry and caught up on ods and ends in-between.  It was getting pretty hot around this point, so my water bottle was quickly getting nixed.

Snack

093

For a snack I had a vegan brownie with a spoonful of coconut milk ice cream and fresh strawberries.  After my snack I ran some errands and indulged in more crafts.  I am a crafting addict and it takes a lot to pull me away from doing them!

Dinner

094

I rewarded myself for getting my teaching job with sushi.  I got a green island roll and a salmon sandwich roll. I didn’t eat it all, so now I have more sushi for tomorrow 🙂  I did crafts beforehand and I’ll post some photos of what I’ve been doing later.  I’ll give you a hint though, it’s awesome and nerdy 😉

Snack

My evening snack was a much needed bowl of granola.  Its been so hot lately that I seem to crave a bowl of granola with diced fruit every night.  After snack time I tackled some more crafts and watched Ghostbusters.  Favorite movie ever.


I really thought today was Thursday when I woke up.  Luckily it wasn’t!  I didn’t get any sub calls for today (two for full days Friday and next week though!)  It was good timing since it meant I could get caught up on things that I was behind on, though tomorrow I’ll need to head to the DMV and renew my license.  The weather has been incredible here and last I checked it was 81 degrees!  This is my kind of weather to be sure 😉

Breakfast

After seeing Angela’s recipe last week for Blueberry Buckwheat pancakes, I knew on my next day off I needed to make them!  They tasted wonderful and I had a little fun with the extra bananas.  I had almond butter on the side for added protein.  Of course the essential coffee was included.

Lunch

Rudi’s english muffin (I’m never switching brands, they’re amazing!) with one of my homemade black bean burgers.  Inside was sliced onion, tons of spinach, pasta sauce and naoyneise.  I had several dehyrdated veggies on the side.  Hey, they’re veggies right?  I hope so because I ate like a 1/3 of the bag.

Dinner

Lunch held me over until around 7 after my brownies had finished.  I did a small stir fry (broccoli, cashews, pepper, onion, mushroom and rice noodles) and a soy yogurt on the side.  It was super yummy and hit the spot.

Dessert

Giving into my chocolate craving, I made ‘healthy-ish brownies).  I subbed whole wheat flour in for all purpose, 1/4th the sugar content, added brewed coffee instead of water and made some pretty decent vegan brownies.  They weren’t super sweet, which was perfect 🙂  And yes, that is a PB chip in case you were wondering 😉

.

The warm weather has certainly been amazing lately and I enjoyed it some today.  I mainly took today to catch up on things and look forward to finishing them up tomorrow!  Tomorrow will definately be another day for shorts!  Good thing I already started doing my spring cleaning on that note…and tomorrow I can work on it some more.
