First Day Fun!

Things that happened yesterday include:

Biggest piece of cake you’ve ever seen.

Mustache fun

Taco eating contest.


Look at me….

There are a couple of things wrong with this picture.

1. I am way too happy on the first day of school.

2. My hair is disgusting and needs to be cut ASAP.


I started the first day of school in the gym at 5:30 this morning with Hubby! The next two weeks are drop sets, so we were “so excited” to do 200 leg presses!!!! πŸ˜‰

Workout + Protein shake + Spinach and cheese omelet + an unpictured GINORMOUS to-go cup of coffee = My morning! πŸ™‚


I got to teach three third grade classes this morning and then went to the primary school to work the rest of the day. I don’t have students this week for K-2nd grade, so I used that time to get LOTS of planning done.

I never took a picture of lunch, but it was pretty random and included Tyson pre-cooked chicken breast, shredded cheese, and buffalo sauce… Plus an apple and Chobani apple cinnamon yogurt.

I loved getting to see all the new kindergarten babies at school today! I can’t wait to start teaching them next week!


I didn’t have to run today because it’s a rest day, but yesterday I ended up doing my long run since the lock-in kept me from running Saturday. The first part of my run was so fast and felt so good! 9:56 for the first mile and 8:46 for the second! Then I got a lot slower for the last 3, but I was still proud! Here I am right before my run!


Caramel rice cake and peanut butter for my afternoon snack today.

And now I’m about to get to work on a yummy dinner for Husband and me!

It was a wonderful first day of school! Only 186 more to go! πŸ˜‰

Have a great night!

    That planning calendar is great. For some reason, even though I have most of my life on a computer calendar for work, I still LOVE having a pen on paper calendar, also. Hope you’re having a good 2nd day of school with the kiddies!
