Hey everyone! So I survived my first day of school! Everyone at my new school is so nice, helpful and enthusiastic. I love working in such an enthusiastic environment and I couldn’t be more excited. And day 2 was even better. I actually knew where I was going and remembered a few names. I’m split between a 4th and a 5th grade class so it’s double the names to remember.
Over the summer I was in a TERRIBLE routine. I did a lot of sitting, grazed all day, and typically wasn’t too hungry for dinner. I was also up until at least midnight every night. Now that I need to get up at 7, this needs to change ASAP. So far, Nolan and I are in a great rhythm. I know it’s only day two, but we’re on a roll!
One of my goals of the fall is to follow My Plate when planning meals.
I certainly don’t eat enough vegetables and fruit and I eat way too much dairy, protein and grains. Oh and fat. Lots of fat. My caloric intake needs to look more like this:
On our crazy meat fest last week, we picked up a few lean tenderloins. BOGO!
I rubbed on pork spices and into the oven it went.
On the side, Nolan whipped up a green bean casserole. WHAT? Is it Christmas? Nope we just love green bean casserole. It’s one of Nolan’s favorites. 🙂
Can you tell which half is Nolan’s?
I’m not gunna lie, I had at least 2 more pieces of pork. 🙂 Hey, it happens. I’m just pumped that we ate at the table for the first time in 3 months.
I am back into the routine of packing my lunches the night before. I usually prep while waiting for dinner to finish cooking.
Ham and avocado sandwich, a plum and some leftover green beans. So many food groups and healthy fats!…and ham. lol
Good eats! Catch ya later.
Do you have any fall goals?
