Instead of showing you what I am going to be eating every day during the school year I just wanted to show you today because let’s be honest…..I will be eating the same thing every work day for the next few months because once I find what works for me, I stick to it.
Breakfast usually consists of a piece of toast at home and at school I have greek yogurt and an apple with pb. Snacks include pretzels (I portioned them out because if I brought the whole bag I would eat them in one sitting and I am trying to make them last until I can go to TJ’s again) and a banana with pb (yes, I am obsessed with peanut butter).
Another apple at lunch plus the biggest salad you will ever see in your life full of cottage cheese, turkey, veggies and any leftovers I can find in the fridge.
Did you really think that I just chomped away on healthy food all day? When the chocolate/sugar monster hits I am always prepared. I never leave home without my emergency kit.
I know we don’t know each other in real life (yet:) but I feel like when something exciting happens in my life, writing it on the blog to you guys = picking up the phone to call your best friend to tell them them when something really great happens.
This is my first year as the cross-country coach at my school (I work at a VERY SMALL school) and I have been very nervous that not a lot of students were going to want to participate on the cross-country team. Sign-ups were today and I am SHOCKED at how many kids are interested! Practice starts tomorrow and I can’t wait to coach a sport that I LOVE so much!
I don’t know why it makes me so happy but maybe it is because although I am not running very much right now, I have an opportunity to celebrate in their successes, feel part of the sport and share something that I love with other people.
Sorry, to get all weird and gushy on you……but imagine what Billy has to deal with on a daily basis and you will realize this isn’t so bad:)

Tell me some GOOD NEWS…..whether little bitty or really big, I want to know something exciting in your life?
Did any of you run cross-country in high school? Got any good tips or things you liked that your coach had you do?
-I have been reading books/articles on the topic like a maniac so that I can be prepared so any tips would be AWESOME!
Do you stick to the same meals/snacks etc or do you branch out?
-I usually eat the same things for bfast and lunch (it just makes life easier) with the exception of switching up the fruit and veggies and for dinner I am ready for something NEW and exciting:)
