Yogurt bowls and Kindergarten

That's right! I subbed in a kindergarten class today! Subbing 4th grade was rough for me as you know and I really stressed about working today. (They don't tell me what grade I'm subbing for until I show up.)

So when they told me kindergarten this morning, I beamed! I love working with my "friends. It's funny. I've noticed that elementary school teachers refer to their students as "friends." It cracks me up!

At 7 this morning, I made myself breakfast to fuel for the day.

002

I was going to just have blueberries but decided I needed something with staying power! (I'm not a big breakfast person. I'm rarely hungry before 10am.)

003

I hate vanilla greek yogurt usually but Trader Joe's makes the best vanilla greek yogurt. The vanilla flavor is so good, better than ice cream!

004

My favorite granola.

005

with a sliced kiwi and 1 tbsp of mini chocolate chips. I love adding some chocolate to my yogurt bowls. The mini chips are great because I get a little chocolate in every bite. It feels like I'm eating a decadent dessert but I'm not.

Honestly, this has been weighing heavily on my mind. I still eat way too much "junk." I go out to eat more often than I'd like and I often make bad choices. Yesterday I ate crackers and peanut butter instead of a "real" dinner because it was the healthiest looking thing in the school cafeteria. I only have 15 minutes for dinner between my 4-6:45 class and my 7pm-10pm class and I have to make it quick!

I need to find something that I can eat between classes that won't make me feel like crap. I'm going to try to work on it next week and plan accordingly. It takes me a while to adjust to a new schedule. Just like a kindergartener, I guess.

Tomorrow is Friday!!! I have my 3rd day of Week Two C-2-5k planned, a movie date and then a camping trip by the beach planned. It's going to be a great weekend!

What are your plans?

Delicious yogurt bowl! Have you tried the TJ's brand nonfat greek vanilla? It's amazing. It's not organic, but so good!

Kindergarten kids are the sweetest! I find with class I just need to bring my own food. Wraps and sandwiches are quick and work!

hahahahahahahahaha, I am TOTALLY guilty of calling my first graders my "friends"!!!! So funny b/c I don't even notice I'm doing it now!! Ugh, and I totally talk in the 3rd person... "What did Mrs. E. tell you, little Johnny?" Should I be admitting this, haha?!

I'm with One Happy Apple... maybe make a quick wrap beforehand that is tasty, convenient, and satisfying to help the dinner situation. You may already know this, but wrapping them up in aluminum foil helps hold them together so well when you're on the run.

P.S. Your last comment on my blog was so sweet. Thanks for all of your support. :)

Subbing for kindergartners sounds like it could be fun= or at least better than 4th-graders :)

Enjoy your weekend!!

aw I think Kindergarten kids are the perfect age .. old enough to do things for themselves but not too old that they talk back :)

I love kindergarten!! I went to school to be a teacher and I volunteered in kindergarten, did practicum in 5th grade (HATED IT!) and did my student teaching in 2nd grade... I loved 2nd grade but nothing beats those cute little kindergartners!!

That pumpkin flax granola is my favorite too, I want to try and make it sometime.

Eating on the go is super hard. I am so thankful I eat most of my meals at work and I have a fridge, micro and toaster there. I would just suggest bringing a lot of fruit and veggies because they are healthy, wholesome and filling!

I am in the same boat as you when it comes to class and food. We should challenge each other to come up with something interesting each week. Not interesting, really, but more a healthy alternative. I just found a microwave in our building - which is good news!

what about microwave dinners? I know the sodium can cause bloating but if it means eating something fillng it might be worth it? maybe?

Your my hero for loving kindergarten. I taught it for 1 year and found that it was not my calling.

I prefer my 8th graders. They are in my comfort zone.

When I am busy I make my own "frozen meals" on Sunday. Make batches of my favorite recipes and putting them in meal sized containers. I freeze them than take them for lunch or quick dinners.

First graders are not my friends, because I'm kind of scared of kids. Who knows when they might bawl and cry? Their parents will hang me! Haha.

No weekend plans at the moment....just chill and relax, I suppose!

Have you tried the Chocolate Cheerios?? They are an amazing chocolate addition to my mornings!

Chocolate chips and vanilla yogurt? Sounds like a wonderful combo.

Subbing gets better or worse depending on the type of kids you have and when you have them (early morning is always when they are really quiet!). In the higher levels some kids will try to take advantage and are mean...but I'm sure you know that already ;).

i hope today is a good day! I need to remember to buy that yogurt the next time I get to go to TJs.

Happy Friday!!!

That yogurt mess looks tasty. I never think to add kiwi.

My plans for this weekend are nothing. And as lame as that sounds, I am very excited about it! I will workout and cook and clean etc.. (old lady stuff) but I have actual plans. If something comes up then I'll roll with it.

YAY FOR FRIDAYS!

i used to eat a tuna fish sandwich in between classes, its fast and balanced and doesn't need to be refrigerated.. just gotta make sure you have a stick of gum afterwards! :)

Hmmm maybe you should start packing a bento box? that way you can pack lots of little things to munch during that 15 minute break. I love to pack a bento for my husband because I use up a lot of leftovers. Then you won't come home too hungry.

My middle son is a Kindergartener and I just love that age. He goes to K on a 700 acre farm not public school though :)
